Professor Fenster’s Book on Conspiracy Theories Referenced in Blog Discussing 9/11 Attacks

Published: January 28th, 2008

Category: Feature, News

Mark Fenster UF Law Professor Mark Fenster (pictured left) recently was quoted in a blog on WordPress.com, which discusses speculation that federal officials assisted in the 9/11 terrorist attacks or took no action to stop them so the United States could go to war in the Middle East, according to a new Scripps Howard/Ohio University poll. The blog referenced his book Conspiracy Theories: Secrecy and Power in American Culture, which said the poll’s findings reflect public anger at the unpopular Iraq war, realization that Saddam Hussein did not have weapons of mass destruction and growing doubts of the veracity of the Bush administration. “What has amazed me is not that there are conspiracy theories, but that they didn’t seem to be getting any purchase among the American public until the last year or so,” Fenster said. “Although the Iraq war was not directly related to the 9/11 attacks, people are now looking back at 9/11 with much more skepticism than they used to.” Keep up with what UF Law faculty are saying in the media and writing about in scholarly publications in FlaLaw Online’s weekly updates on Faculty Scholarship & Activities.
