1. Conspiracy: The United States government illegally spies on its own citizens.
Its no secret that citizens are all being eavesdropped on to some degree by the NSA. And to make matters worse, reports show it is not making us any safer, in fact, it could actually make us even more prone to terror attacks.
2. Conspiracy: The United States Military and Chiefs of Staff secretly implemented terror acts within the US in order to gain support towards the Cuban war.
The documents have been publicly revealed. Thanks to President Kennedy, the plan that included the murder of innocent civilians, sinking ships carrying refugees, and placing false blame on bombings, was rejected.
3. Conspiracy: The incident known as the ‘Gulf of Tonkin’ which supposedly played a major role in US involvement with the Vietnam War, actually never really happened.
It was believed that USS Maddox got involved in a major battle against three ships from North Vietnam, firing a total of 300 shells. This particular incident provided legitimate reason for the US to implement the resolution that came to be knows as the Gulf of Tonkin, giving them justification towards military engagement in the region. In reality, this was never the case. No Vietnamese ships were actually present according to a NSA declassified study taken in 2005. In 1964, even the President at the time, Lyndon Johnson, noted, “For all I know, our Navy was shooting at whales out there.”
4. Conspiracy: That our national governments secretly determine social and economic policies.
Secret documents were released by WikiLeaks that detailed the chapter on rights of intellectual property for the TPP. It revealed secret negotiations regarding regionally based free-trade agreements between the United States and Asian nations.

With the release of Gary Webb’s book, Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion, details regarding the plot were outlined. Webb explained the process in which members of the Contras would smuggle crack into the States, where it would then be distributed among gangs in order to pocket profits. It’s also worth making not of Webb’s suspicious death which was reported as a suicide in which he managed to shoot his own head twice.
6. Conspiracy: It is believed that for a period of forty years, the United States Public Health Service carried out an experiment in which they deliberately refrained from treating African American males who had contracted syphilis, in order to know what might happen.
The study was known as the Tuskegee Syphilis study, which took place between the years 1932 to 1972. The health department never revealed the fact that these men contracted an STD, and despite the introduction of penicillin during the 1940s, it wasn’t offered to them. By the time the 70s came about, 128 of these 399 experiment subjects had died from the disease, a total of forty wives contracted the STD, and 19 newborns had been birthed already infected with congenital syphilis.
7. Conspiracy: The government has been infiltrated and had information stolen by the Church of Scientology.
This specific operation was dubbed Snow White and took place during the 70s. Several years later, in 1977, the case had been solved, imprisoning a church senior official as a result. They had intended on exposing false and secret files regarding countries of interest in order to permit L. Ron Hubbard and other senior members to visit these locations without fear.
8. Conspiracy: The CIA purposely paid-off reporters and journalists associated with major media outlets, giving them full control of the news.
Frank Wisner, Richard Helms, Allen Dulles, and Philip Graham constructed this plan that began during the start of the Cold War. Eventually, many major organizations had become involved including NBC, CBS, ABC,Time, Newsweek, United Press International (UPI), Associated Press, Reuters, Scripps-Howard,Copley News Service, and Hearst Newspapers.

The CIA in fact performed what is known as behavioral studies at universities, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, and prisons using such things as electronics, drugs, sensory deprivation, hypnosis, torture, as well as sexual and verbal abuse. These experiments were discovered in 1977 once the Freedom of Information Act had been implemented. However, because Richard Helms, director of the CIA, had ordered the majority of documents to be destroyed, much of the grueling truth still remains a mystery.
10. Conspiracy: FBI projects were illegally set up in order to tarnish the images of organizations and political figures.
This targeted a list of figures including critics of the Vietnam War, as well as activists such as Martin Luther King Jr. Their methods included slander, psychological warfare, the creation of fake documents, wrongful imprisonment and harassment.
