If Drones Crashed In The United States

Drone Bombing American

And since most of the countries in which we use drones are too poor or fragmented or afraid to retaliate as a unified body, terrorists do…yes, the very threat the the drone program seeks to remove actually advances it. Who would have thought that violence begets violence?

9 Huge Government Conspiracies That Actually Happened

Conspiracy Theories

The Article: 9 Huge Government Conspiracies That Actually Happened by Christina Sterbenz in Business Insider.

The Text: We all know the conspiracy theories — the government’s plan for 911, the second gunman who shot JFK, the evolution of the elite from a race of blood-drinking, shape-shifting lizards.

But the people who spread these ideas usually can’t prove them.

As the years pass, however, secrets surface. Government documents become declassified. We now have evidence of certain elaborate government schemes right here in the U.S. of A.
