Many people like to laugh at conspiracy theorists and call them crazy until the theories actually turn out to be true. Of course quite a few of them involve the good old United States government. Me writing this list or even you viewing this list will probably put us on a watch list by the CIA.
Through the 1950s to the 1970s the CIA had a mind control study that they were using to make a “truth serum” that they could use on communist spies. They gave test subjects drugs, such as LSD, without consent or even tortured. It is safe to say that people have a good reason to be weary of the CIA.
2. Operation Mockingbird
This also happened in the 1950s to the 1970s, the CIA paid big time media outlets like Time, The Washington Post, The New York Times, CBS and other various networks to publish propaganda. The CIA also funded at least one movie, which we all have probably seen, “Animal Farm” by George Orwell. These activities were finally exposed by the Church Committee in 1975. Again the CIA being shady.
From 1930 to 1960 many manufactures knew that there was a link between asbestos and many different ailments. They tried to hide findings that it could lead to respiratory diseases or cancer, just so they could avoid being prosecuted for it. Workers tried to start suing these companies as far back as 1932, although there was not published work correlating the asbestos with cancer until 1962.
4. The Iran-Contra Affair
In 1985-86 government officials were authorized to trade weapons with the Israeli government by the White House. They were trading the weapons in exchange for the U.S. hostages being held in Iran. Congress uncovered this plan in 1987 and made it known to the public.
5. Operation Snow White
In the 1970s, the Church of Scientology went through with the largest government infiltration in United States history. They managed to steal hundreds of documents containing scrutiny against the church. They managed to infiltrate over 136 organizations including the IRS and foreign embassies.
