COINTELPRO and Cognitive Infiltration

COINTELPRO was a secret FBI program aimed at surveilling, infiltrating, discrediting, and disrupting several movements that were peacefully working for change in the United States.

After it was exposed in 1971, the U.S. government claimed that the program ended, but many believe that it did not as there have been several documented cases of government infiltration of activist groups over the last several decades.

In this episode of 9/11 Free Fall, writer Craig McKee joins host, Andy Steele to discuss his latest article for AE911Truth, titled, “Under any other name… COINTELPRO is alive and well in 2024,” which delves into the history of government infiltration of movements in the United States. He lays out some of the methods that were employed within the 9/11 Truth Movement to derail its efforts, including the tactic of “cognitive infiltration” that Obama’s former information czar, Cass Sunstein, described in the 2008 paper that he co-authored, titled “Conspiracy Theories.”

McKee’s article and this interview describe what cognitive infiltration is and how it may be employed. As well, Steele also explains some of the known cases of COINTELPRO subversion from the past as outlined in the film “Cointelpro 101,” which can viewed at this link.

This episode is an introduction to a very important topic not only for members of the 9/11 truth movement but for activist members of any movement that challenges establishment agendas.
