There's a common thread with all these "huge government conspiracies", in that every single one of them ignores the people that would need to be involved.
This is proof that there was no government involvement? Because you cannot bring yourself to believe that a few hundred operatives would behave as professional murderers and keep their silence?
Massive conspiracies DO happen and they involve hundreds. Here in Britain there was a huge conspiracy to achieve a "yes" vote in the referendum over our membership of the European Economic Community. Our government and the corporate-controlled media worked together and openly lied to us and told us this was not a political union, when they knew it was. A huge coordinated conspiracy involving thousands, not all of whom grasped that they were being manipulated. There were huge conspiracies against our Labour Prime Minister, Harold Wilson, which involved hundreds. I could go on and on here, but I will not. Let's all grow up and admit massive conspiracies are a part of our massive governments.
Also, there is such a thing as COMPARTMENTALISATION. Many people who play their role have no idea what is happening a step above or below them. THey see their role as relatively innocuous.
