Once a program is up and running it wouldn't need that much babysitting.
To actually build something like this wouldn't be that difficult. As in the Manhattan project, individuals wouldn't know exactly what they were
working on, so they wouldn't have anything to deny or question.
So you can shorten the chain quite quickly just with that.
As control goes, its easy enough to hold control over someone, you just take a leaf out of the Nazis book as to when they got to France. Don't
threaten the individual, threaten everyone they hold dear.
Perhaps the people who are to be threatened, are actually the people controlling the program or with the reason behind it, which case your work is
Adding a little 'airbrushing' gives a conspiracy theorist something to chew on and not question the whole picture.
We know governments can lie, but if you can control where the truth is so that people can't find or see it, it makes it a whole lot easier.
As for claiming it wouldn't be possible to send to Mars, wouldn't wash. We know they can as Viking proved, not to mention Voyager I & II who
managed to fly exactly as predicted.
If they already knew what was there, as in the Face on Mars or the Pyramids, they may have decided that there was no choice in the matter and taken
appropriate steps 'in our best interest' of course.
The idea of a civilisation predating our own, or even influencing ours would undermine evolution theories as well as religions.
As I've stated, this is just a bit of a fun conspiracy and is to establish if it is possible and to have a little fun with the idea, and NOT actually
saying Mars pictures are a NASA hoax
