I'm curious --  what's your source for that?

> We the Sheeple? Why Conspiracy Theories  Persist
> By Edward Feser  20 Sep 2006

The problem with  attempts to dismiss conspiracy theories is, well, they 
sometimes turn out 
to  be true.

The Soviets thought there was a conspiracy against them in  Afghanistan. If 
you remember the 
events as it was happening during the early  80s, no one knew what was going 
on in 
Afghanistan. Pakistan was filled with  secret services: American, Saudi, 
Israeli, Pakistani, 
and so on, all fueling  a vast conspiracy against the USSR, and all covered 
up with plausible  
denials.

We know this now, from books such as "Ghost Wars" and  others. But at the 
time, it was a 
conspiracy theory. (And from "Ghost Wars",  we can see that the US government 
is indeed 
capable of mind-numbing  stupidity.)

In ten years or so, some of the mid-level actors in the  current game will 
write their 
accounts, and we'll finally begin to  understand what was happened on 
September 11th, 2001.

We saw 9.11, but we  still don't understand what we saw.

For example: the anthrax attacks.  These started precisely seven days after 
9.11. The anthrax 
came from secret  US bioweapons laboratories. Democrats and journalists were 
targeted. A  
number of people died; Congress was shut down.

This was a purely  internal act of terror (i.e., carried out by US citizens, 
not foreigners.)  
Yet we have totally forgotten about it. There were no indictments, not even  
arrests.

Surely if this was terror from a non-government group, it would  have been 
investigated, 
uncovered, and prosecuted. A group with  weapons-grade biological materials 
that carries out 
attacks against the US  government is extremely dangerous. Such a threat 
simply can not be 
allowed  to exist.

But instead, it was covered up. Nothing happened.

Here's  a curious fact: Cheney and his staff began taking Cipro (an 
antibiotic effective  
against anthrax) a week BEFORE the first anthrax attack.

See? Again,  we know what happened, but we don't understand what  happened.
