MAJESTYTWELVE was more believable, because it was professional disinformation, and a very successful program overall.
There are many secret agencies, societies, organizations, syndicates and conspiracies extant in the world today, and there may even be one (or more)
named "The Omega Agency", but I doubt this article describes any group actually in existence.
The best fiction resembles the truth in its imperfection, doesn't answer all questions, and leaves a lot of loose ends. Claiming to unerringly know
the minds and motives of people you don't know is speculative fiction, not an exposé.
On the other hand, it is not unusual to spread kooky stories as a cover. If there were indeed a true power group calling themselves "The Illuminati"
(versus the several impotent groups of poseurs who claim the title), they could all go on TV, tell the absolute truth about themselves, and be laughed
off the world stage.
To quote the memorable Verbal Kint: "The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist."
Trust no one. Suspect everyone.
