Original Message The last oasis in the last free state. The government is so concerned about the masses of people who think the government is untruthful that the government is now planning on infiltrating citizen forums and groups to attempt to discredit them.

This Rawstory article focuses mainly on 911 truthers, but deals with conspiracy theories in general and the hoards of people who don't believe the government any more. The comments are about 95% outraged at the government.

In a 2008 academic paper, President Barack Obama's appointee to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs advocated "cognitive infiltration" of groups that advocate "conspiracy theories" like the ones surrounding 9/11.

Cass Sunstein, a Harvard law professor, co-wrote an academic article entitled "Conspiracy Theories: Causes and Cures," in which he argued that the government should stealthily infiltrate groups that pose alternative theories on historical events via "chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups and attempt to undermine" those groups.
