Cognitive Infiltration: An Obama Appointee's Plan to Undermine the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory

In the annals of democratic evolution, Professor Griffin’s masterful analysis is sure to become a classic, for it illustrates the shocking degree to which even high-level American scholars have lost sight of constitutional principles in the wake of 9/11.

The scholars concerned are Cass Sunstein, former University of Chicago and Harvard Law professor, who has been described as “the pre-eminent legal scholar of our time – the most wide-ranging, the most prolific, the most cited, and the most influential,” and Adrian Vermeule, a younger Harvard law professor.

Sunstein was appointed Obama’s Administrator of the Office of Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget in September, 2009. He and Vermeule had co-authored a paper that appeared in both 2008 and in June 2009 (“Journal of Political Philosophy”) entitled “Conspiracy Theories: Causes and Cures”, in which the running example “involves conspiracy theories relating to terrorism, especially theories that arise from and post-date the 9/11 attacks.”
