Merely raising the possibility of government sponsored conspiracy theories is enough to fatally distract us.

Trust those who seek the truth...doubt those who claim to have found it.

good thread subz, WATS for you. I just wanted to say the quote from val fit perfectly. Trust those in the search for truth, and doubt those who claim they have found it. Some one who is in search of it, will show their thought process and show you their intentions right off the bat by watching their thought process. Some one claiming to have the truth doesnt reveil any intentions usually, just that they have fact and that you should look at it. They dont have to show you their thought process or their intent, just what they want you to see. We are the people trusted with reading between the lines and seeing past it. some cant do that, and its up to the ones that can to see past it and act on that.
During the late 60s, the CIA frequently recruited young men to infiltrate 'subversive' (generally antiwar) groups as agents provocateurs. These infiltrators were to try and agitate the groups and get them to surrender their nonviolent tactics for more militant ones. As part of the joint COINTELPRO effort with the FBI, the CIA maintained wiretaps, 'bugging' devices, hidden tape recorders, and other gimmicks for the invasion of privacy at the premises of the meeting places of many of these groups.

Also realize that even if something is COINTELPRO it cannot mislead unless we trust them as a source. If we remember to trust no one, and to not expect to be trusted, we can stop COINTELPRO in its tracks.
