The psychopathic/sociopathic ruling class has long understood that the more outrageous their conspiracies are the more likely ordinary people, including libertarians, will disbelieve them.
Hitler conspired to burn down the Reichstag and blame it on the communists. Germany's people bought it.
Most Americans are so Pollyanna they would never believe their own rulers would do such things.
An article from Asian News International (ANI) dated "Wed 30 Jan, 2013," supposedly based on leaked documents from a Malaysian hacker, claims the US green-lighted a Brit scheme to pay Qatar to send rebel forces into Syria to launch chemical attacks so the Obama administration could blame it on Assad's regime as a "justification" for war against Syria.
If this sounds too wacko to be true consider America's own history:
President Lincoln cunningly sent ships to resupply South Carolina's Fort Sumter and pointedly told the governor about it. That egged the Southerners into attacking the fort, giving Lincoln his "justification" for starting the Civil War.
Whether the US Battleship Maine blew up in Havana Harbor due to accident or sabotage it became the perfect "justification" to launch America's first great war of empire, The Spanish-American War.
Woodrow Wilson was desperate to get into World War I so he could strut on a world stage but it took the sinking of the Lusitania and the deaths of well-known Americans to "justify" sending thousands of America's young men into Europe's Great War slaughterhouse.
Franklin Roosevelt needed World War II to distract people from his failed economic policies so he secretly worked to maneuver the Japanese into attacking the US, thereby "justifying" participation in the mass murder spree of World War II.
If, as some claim, Nixon launched his "War on Drugs" to divert attention from his Vietnam War failures what's to prevent Obama from starting a war in Syria as a distraction for his Fast and Furious, Benghazi and Solyndra scandals and his disastrous Obamacare scam?
Summarily rejecting conspiracy theories, ignoring history and remaining ignorant of the true nature of psychopathy simply allow the psychopaths to continue their foulest depredations.
