10 conspiracy theories that shockingly turned out to be true

If you are amused by stories about how the authorities use the media for propaganda, and special services are organizing coups in other countries, then here are 10 stories that you could laugh at too, if they were not true. As a rule, the ground for the emergence of conspiracy theories becomes a lack of facts explaining an event, usually tragic — many of these theories have been around for decades and have become part of the culture.

The spread of the Internet has affected this area of human thought in two ways – on the one hand, we now have more opportunity to verify the facts.

On the other hand, it has also become easier to broadcast propaganda, because, despite the apparent democratic nature of the Internet, they are easy to manipulate, and corporations pay a lot of money to cover up their dirty tricks with various nonsense.

Of course, the main and most powerful players in this field are governments. In the 1960s, the CIA used a network of hundreds if not thousands of organizations to support the official point of view — one can only imagine how extensive this network is now.

Not to mention the fact that most of the information we receive is controlled by a single algorithm patented by Google. In the past decade, thanks to the activities of groups such as WikiLeaks and Anonymous, we have received a lot of new data and documents, previously hidden from the public, and, thanks to fearless journalists, exposers from inside companies, hackers, activists and people like Snowden, who publish secret information, the wall of lies, erected by the power of corporations, continues to arise new cracks.

1. Operation Ajax, an Iranian coup accomplished by the CIA

Operation Ajax Conspiracy theories

In Iran, this event is called the coup 28 of the Mordad, in the UK – the operation “Kick”. No matter how you call it, this is about a coup in Iran, during which democratically elected Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadeq was overthrown and the monarchical authority of Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi was restored.

The main reason for the coup was Mosaddyk’s attempt to nationalize the Iranian oil fields, which threatened the profits of the British-Iranian oil company owned by the British. The United States, firstly, helped the ally, and secondly, they viewed the Mossaddyk movement as a communist.

The Iranian revolution of 1979, which led to the emergence of an anti-Western Islamic republic led by Ayatollah Khomeini, became a virtually direct consequence of Operation Ajax. Although it was already a secret to Polichinel, the US government until recently continued to conceal the truth about Operation Ajax – only 60 years after the events, CIA documents were declassified.

2. “Naira’s Testimony”, a false pretext for the first Gulf War

Today it is believed that power and intelligence manipulated the American people and their representatives in Congress in order to unleash a second Iraq war, with false intelligence information.

Moreover, almost no one knows that the first Iraqi war began in a very similar way. People are accustomed to considering the operation “Desert Storm” an example of “just war”, but the fact is that they do not know the story of a 15-year-old girl named Naira. Meanwhile, it was her testimony in the Committee on Human Rights of the American Congress in 1990 that secured the idea of Iraqi war crimes in public consciousness.

Naira told the Commission how “the armed Iraqi soldiers broke into the hospital, threw the newborns out of the incubators and left them to die on the cold floor”.

This is a terrible image – and completely fictional. A detailed investigation by Amnesty International and other independent groups found that Naira’s story was invented by Hill & Knowlton PR (the largest in the world at the time). She was hired by the organization Citizens for a Free Kuwait for the purpose of propaganda, designed to incline the Americans to war. The campaign was controlled by a trusted Bushman, a certain Craig Fuller.

It was a large-scale project in which 119 top managers of H & K were involved in 12 offices throughout the United States. The role of Naira has even held a casting – it turned out to be Naira Al-Sabah, the daughter of Kuwaiti Ambassador to the United States Saud Nasser Al-Saud Al-Sabah.

3. Operation “Clip”

Operation "Clip"  true conspiracy theories

Operation Clip (the first name is “Hopelessness”) was a secret plan for recruiting Nazi scientists by American intelligence at the end of World War II for further work in the United States — about 1,500 Germans, including engineers and technicians, participated in it.

Formally, scientists were taken to prevent the Nazis from restoring the German government, in addition, it was important to prevent technology from falling into the hands of the USS

R. Whatever the plan behind Operation Clip, as a result, ruthless Nazi criminals were also resettled in the United States. According to the publication Ynet, Nazi scientists, rescued by the CIA from a military tribunal, helped develop American chemical weapons, and together with American scientists developed LSD – then it was believed that this would be a “truth serum.”

4. Operation Gladio, anti-communist provocations in Italy

Operation Gladio was a joint post-war project of the CIA, NATO and MI-6 to fight communism in Italy. It lasted two decades and used the networks created by the CIA, designed to act in the rear of the Communists in the event of their invasion of Western Europe.

During this time, from the 1960s to the 1980s, a number of terrorist attacks were committed, the responsibility for which was placed on the Communists and other left-wing political opponents in order to present communism in an unfavorable light.

As a result of several explosions, hundreds of innocent people, including children, were killed, and the most noticeable act of terrorism was an explosion at the Bologna railway station on August 2, 1980, which resulted in 85 people being killed. How do we know about the operation “Gladio”?

There are two main sources. The first is an investigation by Italian judge Felix Casson, which turned out to be so convincing that Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti had to confirm the existence of Gladio. The second source is the testimony of the Gladio operative, Vincenzo Vinciguerra, who is serving a life sentence for murder.

5. The government uses insects, rodents, and drones to spy

conspiracy theories

Often they say jokingly that, supposedly, that bird is a government spy, how carefully it looks at you. Meanwhile, although we do not know the details, it is certain that the American government has similar technologies, and they are used both for military purposes and to spy on their own citizens.

The insect-drone conspiracy theory first emerged in 2007, when anti-war protesters reported strange buzzing insects. Officials rejected this assumption, calling it nonsense, but many witnesses reported strange objects soaring in the sky, resembling a dragonfly. Meanwhile, the military use of miniature drones and “animal spies” is undeniable. In 1999, DARPA launched the Stealthy Insect Sensor project (“Insect as an inconspicuous sensor”), the goal of which was to learn how to use bees in combat zones as bomb detectors. In his book The Brain of the Pentagon.

The history of the DARPA, a top secret US military research agency, without censorship “(of The Pentagon’s Brain: of An Uncensored History of the DARPA, America’s the Top Secret Military Research Agency) journalist Annie Jacobsen showed that the agency is working on a” biogibridov “, ie animal cyborg with military purposes.

6. Killings and coups in foreign countries, organized by the CIA

When supporters of the Democratic Party say that foreign agents have influenced the recent US presidential elections, it’s hard not to notice the irony. First, they have no evidence, except that intelligence agencies allegedly consider this to be true. And secondly, over the past 100 years, the US government and security services, namely the CIA, have aggressively intervened in elections abroad many times, and in some cases directly financed the killing of candidates. Here are just a few of the most obvious cases of CIA interference in foreign elections and other political processes:

South Korea (late 40s); Italy (1948 – mid 70s); Guatemala (1954); Congo (1960); Dominican Republic (1961); South Vietnam (1963); Brazil (1964); Uruguay (1969); Bolivia (1971); Chile (1970-1973); Argentina (1976); Australia (1975); El Salvador (1980); Iran (late 70s); Grenada (1983); Haiti (1986); Panama (1990); Nicaragua (1990); Czechoslovakia (1990); Peru (1990–2000); Yugoslavia (2000).

This is only a small sample of countries where even the main news agencies, and in many cases the CIA itself, have recognized the fact of the interference. It would not be an exaggeration to say that there are dozens of other examples – and now we are talking only about “soft” coups, otherwise we would have to include in the list the complete military destruction of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and other Middle Eastern countries during the “war against terrorism”, as well as countless imperial wars against the “communist threat”. (conspiracy theories)

7. Media – the propaganda branch of the State Department

conspiracy theories

People have long accused the major media of having become a trusted division of the US State Department, in a very complex and well thought-out way to simultaneously form public opinion and mimic the presence of opposition. The first evidence that the media could indeed be the mouthpiece of the government came after the disclosure of the so-called Operation Mockingbird. In effect, the CIA forced journalists, US news agencies, and large broadcasters to become propagandists and spies. In the end, journalists from all leading news organizations — literally thousands of people — were drawn into this symbiosis with the CIA.

This policy was carried out in the 50s, at the beginning of the Cold War, under the pretext of fighting communism. The CIA began to limit the use of journalists in the program “Mockingbird” in 1976, but many believe that since then it has transformed into something more powerful and omnipresent.

During the presidential election of 2016, several alarming revelations appeared on WikiLeaks, exposing collusion between the media and politicians – namely, the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton headquarters. But it was not only about influencing the election result. New revelations have shown that the government is actively seeking to launch hands into the largest media corporations in order to influence how the world shows them.

8. “Deep State” (or conspiracy theory, formerly known as the New World Order)

For decades, radical ideologies of both left and right were arguing about the conspiracy idea of the shadow secret government, or the “New World Order,” which supposedly controls the heads of state and industry leaders.

After the 2016 elections, the concept of a “deep state” became common in the discourses of theorists from alternative media, spreading along various trends and refracted in various ideologies. Now everyone, from the “alternative left” to the “alternative right,” believes in the existence of a collision between elites, represented by the political establishment and non-conservative industrialists, who allegedly run a geopolitical show.(conspiracy theories)

Fortunately for the people of Earth, the revelations that have appeared on WikiLeaks and in other sources over the past few years clearly show that the New World Order not only exists but is a much more influential organization than naive supporters of conspiracy theories could imagine.

9. The CIA used psychics to infiltrate the USSR during the Cold War.

conspiracy theories

This is a popular plot in fiction: a man with supernormal abilities, which the authorities use to find the criminal. The concept of the government program for the creation of mental weapons has become particularly popular after the release of the film “Mad Special Forces”, based on the history of the semi-mythical project StarGate.(conspiracy theories)

Of course, we are used to laughing at such stories and attributing them to meaningless conspiracy theories. But recently, hundreds of thousands of declassified documents of the CIA finally confirmed: the services of psychics are regularly resorted to by the police and other law enforcement agencies, and, moreover, the government actually tried to create an army of psychics during the Cold War to get information from the Soviet Union.

10. CIA monitors US citizens through their gadgets

In early 2017, WikiLeaks began to publish shocking revelations about the possibilities of hackers from the CIA. The data shows that the agency has access to an incredibly wide range of vulnerabilities, exploits and specially created “secret passages”, which, according to many experts, means a gross violation of civil liberties.

The main of these violations is surveillance of their own citizens and hacking of user devices – as the WikiLeaks documents show, for this the CIA has a lot of opportunities.(conspiracy theories)

The agency can hack a smartphone on Android and iOS or a personal computer, in fact, having obtained full remote control over the device; can access smart TVs to listen to your conversations; can crack cars and arrange accidents – “almost imperceptible murders”. And, of course, the CIA hides these vulnerabilities that could be exploited by hackers from other countries.

This can hardly be called a surprise – information about government crimes leaks slowly but inexorably, continuing to embarrass and alarm citizens, activists, entrepreneurs and international leaders.

CIA Crushes CNN’s Latest Trump-Russia Conspiracy Theory

(Raul Ilargi Meijer) It’s undoubtedly better to leave some stories alone, and this may be one of them. Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov perhaps put it best when he called it “pulp fiction” (and what’s more American than that?). But this one is so exemplary of how the news is cooked up for you these days, let’s have a go anyway.

What makes this story so ideal for its purpose is that it involves intelligence and state secrets, so the news outlet that runs it doesn’t have to prove a thing; it can simply say it’s not authorized to divulge what it doesn’t write, while hinting it does know. Plus, it can use any number of covert sources.

But in the process, a damning picture can still be painted. And if that picture involves Donald Trump, and it’s CNN that’s painting it, well, we know what it’s going to look like. Here’s how it started at CNN yesterday (with some additions from today):

US Extracted Top Spy From Inside Russia In 2017

In a previously undisclosed secret mission in 2017, the United States successfully extracted from Russia one of its highest-level covert sources inside the Russian government, multiple Trump administration officials with direct knowledge told CNN. A person directly involved in the discussions said that the removal of the Russian was driven, in part, by concerns that President Donald Trump and his administration repeatedly mishandled classified intelligence and could contribute to exposing the covert source as a spy.

The decision to carry out the extraction occurred soon after a May 2017 meeting in the Oval Office in which Trump discussed highly classified intelligence with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and then-Russian Ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak. The intelligence, concerning ISIS in Syria, had been provided by Israel. The disclosure to the Russians by the President, though not about the Russian spy specifically, prompted intelligence officials to renew earlier discussions about the potential risk of exposure, according to the source directly involved in the matter.

At the time, then-CIA Director Mike Pompeo told other senior Trump administration officials that too much information was coming out regarding the covert source, known as an asset.[..]

Asked for comment, Brittany Bramell, the CIA director of public affairs, told CNN: “CNN’s narrative that the Central Intelligence Agency makes life-or-death decisions based on anything other than objective analysis and sound collection is simply false. Misguided speculation that the President’s handling of our nation’s most sensitive intelligence—which he has access to each and every day—drove an alleged exfiltration operation is inaccurate.”

[..] White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said, “CNN’s reporting is not only incorrect, it has the potential to put lives in danger.”

The removal happened at a time of wide concern in the intelligence community about mishandling of intelligence by Trump and his administration. Those concerns were described to CNN by five sources who served in the Trump administration, intelligence agencies and Congress. Those concerns continued to grow in the period after Trump’s Oval Office meeting with Kislyak and Lavrov. Weeks after the decision to extract the spy, in July 2017, Trump met privately with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit in Hamburg and took the unusual step of confiscating the interpreter’s notes.

Afterward, intelligence officials again expressed concern that the President may have improperly discussed classified intelligence with Russia, according to an intelligence source with knowledge of the intelligence community’s response to the Trump-Putin meeting. Knowledge of the Russian covert source’s existence was highly restricted within the US government and intelligence agencies. According to one source, there was “no equal alternative” inside the Russian government, providing both insight and information on Putin.

Pretty bad, right? Well, we’re not done just yet. Here’s the BBC adding its two cents:

US Extracted High-Level Spy From Inside Russia In 2017, Reports Say

Russian media named the spy as former presidential administration official Oleg Smolenkov. The Kommersant newspaper said Mr Smolenkov went on holiday with his family to Montenegro in 2017 and disappeared, before a man with the same name and a woman with the same name as Mr Smolenkov’s wife purchased a house in the US state of Virginia, near Washington DC. Russian reports said Mr Smolenkov had worked for Yury Ushakov, a senior aide to President Putin.

Asked by the BBC on Tuesday about the reports, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov confirmed that Mr Smolenkov had worked for the presidential administration but denied that he had held a high-level position, adding that he had been sacked. Mr Peskov described the US media coverage of the reported extraction as “pulp fiction”.

There was no suggestion on Tuesday that President Trump directly compromised the source in Russia, and reports said that widespread media speculation about US intelligence conclusions had contributed to the decision to extract the source. Last year, Russian operatives travelled to England and used a nerve agent in an assassination attempt against a former Russian military intelligence officer, Sergei Skripal, who had spied for the British.

Isn’t it just lovely how they manage to throw in Skripal there at the end? Took a bit of stretching, but the BBC is plenty flexible

Qanon: “They want you DIVIDED”

Okay, so this alleged spy is extracted (or “exfiltrated”) by US intelligence, and then buys a home in Virginia. But not only that, he buys it under his own name. Presumably so that if Putin wants to find the man who divulged all those secrets for 10 years+, he can just Google him. Here’s NBC:

Possible Russian Spy For CIA Now Living In Washington Area

A former senior Russian official is living in the Washington area under U.S. government protection, current and former government officials tell NBC News. NBC News is withholding the man’s name and other key details at the request of U.S. officials, who say reporting the information could endanger his life. Yet the former Russian government official, who had a job with access to secrets, was living openly under his true name.

An NBC News correspondent went to the man’s house in the Washington area and rang the doorbell. Five minutes later, two young men in an SUV came racing up the street and parked immediately adjacent to the correspondent’s car. The men, who identified themselves only as friends of the Russian, asked the correspondent what he was doing there.

[..] The [New York] Times said the source was “the American government’s best insight into the thinking of and orders” from Putin, and was key to the CIA’s assessment that Putin favored Donald Trump’s candidacy and personally ordered the hacking of the Democratic National Committee.

The Times previously reported that the source was considered so sensitive that then-CIA Director John Brennan had declined to refer to the person in the top secret Presidential Daily Brief during the final months of the Obama administration. Brennan sent reports from the source to the president and a small group of top national security aides in a separate, white envelope to assure its security, the Times reported.

[..] NBC News has not confirmed that the Russian living near the nation’s capital fed the CIA information about Russian election interference. But for reasons that NBC News is withholding, he fits the profile of someone who may have had access to information about Putin’s activities and who would have been recruitable by American intelligence officials.

Two former FBI officials told NBC News they believe he is the source referred to in the CNN and New York Times report. The Russian will likely be moved from the place he is currently living in the interest of keeping him safe, current and former officials said.

He will be moved in the interest of keeping him safe. That is just brilliant. What, you think Putin will be upset at no longer being able to Google his whereabouts?

To remain fair, let’s give RT some space, too, shall we?

Was Key CIA Spy ‘Extracted’ From Moscow Over #Russiagate Fears?

Media outlets in Russia immediately began speculating as to the identity of the alleged mole, quickly settling on Oleg Smolenkov, state advisor of the third class who had worked at the Russian embassy in Washington before 2010. Smolenkov took his wife and three children on vacation to Montenegro on July 14, 2017, whereupon they vanished without a trace. The police have been investigating their disappearance as possible murder.

[..] Russian Senator Franz Klintsevich, deputy head of the Defense and Security Committee, dismissed CNN’s story as “fake” and “carrying out orders for another attempt to discredit Trump,” according to TASS. Most of the US mainstream media outlets spent the past three years promoting the notorious ‘Russiagate’ conspiracy theory on behalf of the Democrats, and have refused to acknowledge any wrongdoing even though special counsel Robert Mueller failed to find anything to incriminate the president after a two-year investigation.

Moreover, CNN and MSNBC have hired a number of former intelligence officials, whose fingerprints have been all over ‘Russiagate,’ as anti-Trump pundits.

John Brennan, James Clapper, here’s looking at you. There was no need today to read much further in order to find out that the secret info Trump is accused of divulging to “the Russians” had already been published first by no other than…CNN on March 31 2017. There was no secret. Other than perhaps, says Aaron Maté, that Israel was the source. But trust us, Putin would have known that.

After the Mueller report fiasco, one would think the media who don’t like Trump would be more careful with their reporting, and before reporting it. But they just keep at it.

In the process, as quoted above, through their false reporting and false claims, it’s they who are endangering lives, not Donald Trump:

Brittany Bramell, the CIA director of public affairs, told CNN: “CNN’s narrative that the Central Intelligence Agency makes life-or-death decisions based on anything other than objective analysis and sound collection is simply false. Misguided speculation that the President’s handling of our nation’s most sensitive intelligence—which he has access to each and every day—drove an alleged exfiltration operation is inaccurate.” [..]

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said, “CNN’s reporting is not only incorrect, it has the potential to put lives in danger.”

It’s not just the White House, the CIA itself says it too.

More Americans Questioning Official 9/11 Story As New Evidence Contradicts Official Narrative

Whitney Webb, MintPress News
Waking Times

Today the event that defined the United States’ foreign policy in the 21st century, and heralded the destruction of whole countries, turns 18. The events of September 11, 2001 remains etched into the memories of Americans and many others, as a collective tragedy that brought Americans together and brought as well a general resolve among them that those responsible be brought to justice.

While the events of that day did unite Americans in these ways for a time, the different trajectories of the official relative to the independent investigations into the September 11 attacks have often led to division in the years since 2001, with vicious attacks or outright dismissal being levied against the latter.

Conspiracy Theories

Unidentified Triangular Craft Near Oregon Air Base Leaves Conspiracy Theorists Guessing

Something that was universally deemed to be an exotic triangular object made its way over Portland, Oregon, arousing vast speculation over covert USAF projects, both past and present.

There has emerged a series of images supposedly showing a shadow project government spy plane in the skies over Portland, Oregon in the US, apparently a stone’s throw from the Portland Air National Guard Base (PANG). The authenticity of the images has yet to be verified, however.

The triangular, partially lit-up object featured in the snaps couldn’t help but intrigue the vast audience of YouTube conspiracy theorists Blake and Brett Cousins of thirdphaseofmoon, who posted the pictures in a clip over the weekend, citing “multiple accounts” from a number of onlookers in the area.

In the clip, Blake noted that the sighting, more specifically the contours, bears a striking resemblance to the alleged “infamous” TR-3B Black Manta – an aircraft that is thought to have been developed for the US Air Force as part of a black project.

Many have long speculated that the supersonic stealth plane, with a recognisable triangular design, was used during the Gulf War to provide laser designation for the Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk attack aircraft.

Blake went on to suggest that the craft in the images was most certainly “military”, given the light it was throwing back.

“FINALLY! It’s About To Get Real…TR-3B Pang Base Portland”, the website founders wrote, while another user commented in the same manner:

“Great picture of a TR-3B.”

There were, however, those who thought other options would be even more plausible:

“Judging by the pic that’s not the TR3. That’s the new Stealth AI Drone”, one astonished viewer noted, while another butted in, saying that he would rule out CGI (computer-generated imagery).

Hordes of fans applauded the footage, bringing up the military base in the vicinity: one even suggested that it could be a new stealth drone, the XQ-58A.

Another went deeper into the conspiracy theory, suggesting “they want to be seen” as “it’s part of how they control disclosure”.

“This IS NOT definitely a TR3B! It looks like an F45”, a user commented, with another chiming in with a completely different idea in mind:

“That is a Large Extra-terrestrial Craft. The 2nd clip. The entire ship is phasing in from another dimension and somehow how only exposing its lights. The ship does not reveal its true form for safety reasons (its [sic] massive, that’s an understatement), and also due to compassion for us”, the user explained.

The idea about the military testing new equipment is recurrent, though:

“This is not a UFO/this is military aircraft. They were out testing”, one suggested, with another adding: “I saw what looked like an Air Force logo near the nose of the craft”.
