The US Government helps civilians distinguish “conspiracy theories” from actual fact. Written with a touch of “pay no attention to that man behind the curtain”… Sorry, does that make me eligible for a custom-fitted tinfoil hat? Just a reminder: These are the guys who were positive that Iraq had WMDs…

Does the story claim that vast, powerful, evil forces are secretly manipulating events? If so, this fits the profile of a conspiracy theory. Conspiracy theories are rarely true, even though they have great appeal and are often widely believed. In reality, events usually have much less exciting explanations.

The U.S. military or intelligence community is a favorite villain in many conspiracy theories.
