Letter to the 9/11 Truth Community: David Ray Griffin Needs Our Support Right Now

Dear 9/11 Truth Community,

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.

One of his main concerns right now is that his new book, Cognitive Infiltration: an Obama Appointee's Plan to Undermine the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory, successfully make the impact that it should. As many in our community already know, it is a response to legal scholar (and now Obama appointee) Cass Sunstein's highly deceptive argument for a new Cointelpro-like operation to be directed against the 9/11 truth movement. Griffin utilizes all his own remarkable capabilities to thoroughly deconstruct and expose the fraudulent nature of this prominent legal scholar's call for an illegal operation. Griffin's book was just published, at the beginning of September, and there hasn't yet been time for many to have read it.

Griffin feels the book is especially important and laments that he is not able to promote it as he would normally do. But there is a way that we can step in and fill his shoes -- write and post reviews of the book, so that prospective readers can see how important it is. Reviews posted at Amazon.com would be especially effective in making the book successful. Here is the link to the book at Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/Cognitive-Infiltration-Appointees-Undermine-Conspiracy/dp/1566568218/

Although Amazon maintains a length limit on reviews of 1,000 words, they don't adhere to the rule strictly. However, it's likely that much longer reviews would be better directed at the many other sites that are open to our arguments. Please buy, read and then review Cognitive Infiltration as soon as you can. There cannot be too many reviews!

Thanks for doing everything you do for the truth,

Tod Fletcher

Our Prayers and Heartfelt Support

At 71, he is a Fine Example of what it means to be a Patriot and True American.

His Devotion, Dedication and Contributions to the 911 Truth Movement has been Indispensable.

# David Ray Griffin's new book Cognitive Infiltration An Obama Appointee's Plan to Undermine the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory

My Heartfelt Gratitude

For me, David Ray Griffin is the first academic that exposed dispassionately and convincingly the large number of anomalies and falsifications concerning the official conspiracy theory of the September 11th attacks.

His books The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11 and The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions have proved beyond any reasonable doubt that the official narrative for 9/11 is a cruel fabrication.

I have the highest respect for David Ray Griffin and send him my heartfelt gratitude.

With the hope that he gets better soon, I have ordered my copy of Cognitive Infiltration: An Obama Appointee's Plan to Undermine the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory from Amazon.uk and will be writing a review after I have had the pleasure of reading it.

Received my Copy of Cognitive Infiltration

I hope David Ray Griffin is recovering well. I received my copy of Cognitive Infiltration: An Obama Appointee's Plan to Undermine the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory and have posted my review on Amazon.

Concessions To Reality, October 3, 2010

Cognitive Infiltration: An Obama Appointee's Plan To Undermine The 9/11 Conspiracy Theory by David Ray Griffin is an informed examination of a paper called Conspiracy Theories: Causes and Cures by Cass Sunstien and Adrian Vermeule.

Cass Sunstein is currently the administrator of Information and Regulatory Affairs for the Barack Obama Administration.

It is recommended that the Conspiracy Theories: Causes and Cures paper by Cass Sunstien is read or at the least browsed before reading Griffin's book.

Sunstein's deficient and disturbing paper suggests ways to break up the 9/11 Truth movement in particular by way of Cognitive Infiltration. This "necessity" is based on the assumption that the 9/11 Truth Movement is extremist and potentially violent.

Reading Sunstein's original paper is nauseating because he currently holds a position of great power within the Obama Government. He is also regarded within legal circles as a respected legal professor that could conceivably find a position as a Supreme Court judge. This is disturbing because Sunstein's paper is calling for something illegal that goes directly against the first amendment of the United States.

David Ray Griffin, with his usual eloquence demolishes Sunstein's proposals with dispassionate reason, knowledge and logic. At times Griffin clearly shows that Sunstein's views about violence and extremism better reflect the Bush/Cheney behaviour that has led to over a million three hundred thousand Iraqi deaths since that particular invasion began.

As Sunstein steers clear from examining any of empirical evidence put forward by the 9/11 Truth Movement, David Ray Griffin breaks down the numerous questions and anomalies concerning the official conspiracy theory with succinct brevity. It appears that almost the entire official conspiracy theory for 9/11 is a poorly constructed convolution of lies.

One way to eradicate the prevalence of conspiracy theories in popular culture is for the "authorities" to finally tell the unfiltered truth about past and current events without fear of the consequences. Then as a people we can move forward to perhaps making some time to educate and feed the population while trying to reverse the enormous damage we have done to our planet.

Here in the UK

It got sent out by Amazon a lot sooner than they predicted and I am now half way through it.

Its quite short and he has constitently maintained his written prose from his earlier books.

It is an interesting read because Mr Griffin suggests that Sunstein, while on the surface may support the official conspiracy theory, may in fact question it by what references he uses and how he wrote his article (exoteric vs esoteric meanings).

Griffin review in The Creek


The Rock Creek Free Press would like to use your Amazon.com review in our October issue (we are working on it now) to help support David Ray Griffin. I assume there is no problem with this, we will give you credit and would like to include a short blurb about who you are at the end of the review. Can you contact me?

The recently-released book "Cognitive Infiltration" by Dr. David Ray Griffin published by Olive Branch Press (2011) is sitting on my desk. It is a discussion of both the draft and the final copies of Cass Sunstein's essay on conspiracy theories in which he introduced the term "crippled epistomologies". So far, I am up through page 62, but well beyond pages 28-42 in which he dismantles the "crippled epistomology" concept. I refer all who promote the Sunstein argument and especially the idea that the epistomology of the 9/11 Truth movement is either flawed or crippeld to those pages and the book as a whole and would suggest strongly you read footnote #128 (six paragraphs, 56 lines long) on pages 166-167. I do remember the dismissive and pejorative comments many years ago about how a theologian could possibly be qualified to argue the matter; his own credentials, far greater than any ever presented in these threads in brief, are noted on pages 29-31.

Reading Griffin's work is like watching an accomplished aikido master take on a street thug. I am only through page 62 in the detailed reading, but I have to offer up the last lines of the book: "If [Sunstein's argument and the illegalities of his proposals] is the best plan for dealing with the growing influence of the 9/11 Truth movement that can be devised by "the pre-eminent legal scholar of our time", is it not time to throw in the towel?"

Tried to add this at Amazon

Tried to add this at Amazon but got this message:

"We're sorry, but the review system is currently not available. Please check back soon."

I will write more in depth when I finish the book.

Love Dr. Griffin; have his book, of course, but...

I can't imagine Dr. Griffin has more of an admirer than I, but I must say, his recovery should not depend upon sales of his book. And I think he would be the first to agree with me. Dr. Griffin is a man of great faith, and I'm sure his primary focus is on that right now.

But spreading his message is ALWAYS a valuable and worth-while thing to do.

Great idea to write reviews.


As usual, a great book.

Every word is so carefully thought out and placed.
Thank you DRG, and get well, please.
You are a very needed man.
And loved.

I'm glad to hear that--but the subtitle

I haven't read it yet, and how you describe it is what I would expect from DRG. But what bothers me is that subtitle. In other books, Griffin has been insistent (as he should be) in pointing out that when the phrase '9/11 conspiracy theory' is used, the immediate question should be, 'Which conspiracy theory?'--as that is precisely what the official story is.

Please don't take this for nitpicking. I simply get bothered every time I see that phrase--one of the most potent pro-authority, anti-truth ideological weapons of our day--repeated in a way that reinforces what has become its accepted meaning. And that may be what happens for a lot of the people we still need to reach, who might not actually get around to reading what's inside the book. Maybe it was the publisher's call this time.

DRG Surgically Infiltrates Sunstein's Words

I'm about half way through the book and it is very interesting the way DRG points out the many flaws in Sunstein's writings regarding the 9/11 Truth Movement. The next time my wife starts yelling at me for being a 9/11 truth activist I'm going to tell her I have "crippled epistemologies" which are likely to lead to violence. I think she will back off after she hears those two words. LOL Take care DRG, I hope your recovery comes quickly.

I have only recently awakened

I have only recently awakened to the apparent 9-11 Truth. I have become one of the volunteers for the Architects and Engineers for 9-11 Truth organization and am serving on their Writing Team.

I have read a number of Mr. Griffin's books and very much appreciate his efforts in the 9-11 Truth effort. I wish his speedy recovery and God's blessings upon him and his family.

Thanks for posting this

I just ordered this book and will gladly write a review. I am glad that Dr. Griffin is on the mend (and hopefully has his next book in mind). He is a national treasure and I wish him a speedy recovery.


I have finished the book in which the recovering( ?!!) doctor dismantles the presumptive (C)ass. Griffin's body of work on this topic is without peer; the man is a national hero. And Todd, I just listened to your gig on "Guns and Butter" @ http://www.kpfa.org/guns-and-butter or http://kpfa.org/archive/id/64162 and I'd like to commend you for your command of the facts, the arguments and more.
