As many in the 9/11 truth community know, David Ray Griffin has been in the hospital. He is recovering from major back surgery and serious complications from it. He will recover completely and be able to return to the cause, but his recovery will require a rather long time. At present he needs rest and therapy and he is not able to do the many things that he would be doing were he well.
Former Chicago and Harvard law professor Cass Sunstein, who in 2009 was appointed by President Barack Obama to direct an important executive branch office, had in 2008 co-authored an article containing a plan for the government to prevent the spread of anti-government “conspiracy theories.” Arguing that such theories are believed only by groups suffering from “informational isolation,” he advocated the use of anonymous government agents to engage in “cognitive infiltration” of these groups in order to introduce “cognitive diversity,” with the aim of breaking them up.
Noting that Sunstein’s proposal has evoked condemnations from across the political spectrum–not least because it, being similar to the FBI’s COINTELPRO of the 1960s, would be illegal–David Ray Griffin focuses on the fact that Sunstein’s primary target is the conspiracy theory advocated by the 9/11 Truth Movement. Examining Sunstein’s charge that this theory is both “harmful” and “demonstrably false,” Griffin uses both satire and overwhelming evidence to show that this twofold charge applies instead to what Sunstein calls “the true conspiracy theory” about 9/11-namely, the “theory that Al-Qaeda was responsible for 9/11.”
In the United States today, the phrase `conspiracy theory’ functions as a sort of giant cudgel, used to scare us out of talking openly about a broad (and ever-growing) range of scandals that the powerful cannot afford to let the people comprehend. In this new book, David Ray Griffin takes devastating aim at that repressive tactic, exposing it for what it really is. All those who cherish democracy, and intellectual freedom, owe it to themselves to read this brave analysis—and owe its author their sincerest thanks.

That book looks great. Someone commented that Osama Bin Laden was a student of Philip Zelikow (9/11 Commission Director) back in 1998?
If you work for KBR then I would have thought you were in on the 9/11 conspiracy
Im just a guy in the postal mission over here in Iraq. KBR was a means to an end. I have used the company to pay off my bills and get a lil ahead. Im not gonna BS about it. Im a OIF Vet, 03-04, 88m, i was the second convoy on MSR Tampa to come up here from Navstar in 03. Do i feel like i sold a part of my soul for working for them? Yep. How do i deal with it? I see the joy on all the service members faces when they get that box/letter from home that they have been waiting for. It makes it all worthwhile.
Fair enough, I don't have a problem with it. I'm just pointing out that you are, under a TM perspective, very much part of the problem as opposed to the solution.
Well, you gotta take into account that ohhhhh a good 75% of KBR employees (in the LOGCAP Project in Iraq) are prior serivce. We all have bills, responsibilities, families to support. And just like me, alot of employees in KBR LOGCAP needed a job. Its not a perfect situation. Like i said, im not gonna BS about it, i used the company to pay off my bills and get ahead. I leave iraq in 2 weeks, i been over here for 2 years straight as a civilian. I cant comment on the FEMA camps, the lawsuits, or any of that, KBR is a huge beast (yup, a beast) and it has a lot of things going on. Im just in the postal mission.
I'm being factious. I don't have a problem with your job at all. but it's pretty rich to hold a conspiracist view of the world and then just shrug at the part you're actually playing in it.
