Perception and Propaganda
Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Justice examines both government-endorsed accounts and alternative accounts of the 9/11 attack. Most alternative accounts posit some level of complicity by government insiders, up to the attack being planned and carried out by covert agencies. If any such account is true, it stands to reason that the same agencies would go to great lengths to manage public perceptions about the attack in order to conceal the nature of its perpetration. Indeed, sophisticated operations such as Operation Mockingbird provide documented precedents to show how disinformation campaigns run by covert agencies have worked surreptitiously to influence public opinion.
