“Governments lie. They do it all the time. And, much as we’d like to believe otherwise, the US government is no exception. There were times when we may have believed otherwise. But after Vietnam and Watergate, we know better.”
Ted Koppel, “The USS Vincennes: Public War, Secret War.” — July 1, 1992, ABC News
The tragedies of Malaysian Airlines Flights MH-370 and MH-17 have been the source of much speculation. This is not a new phenomenon, even if the Internet makes it easier for the information – correct or false – to quickly spread over cyberspace. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY
Air disasters are major events which have always attracted worldwide coverage. More often than not, these tragedies have given rise to ‘Conspiracy Theories’.
Nevertheless, there is evidence that governments — and the US government is no exception– will not hesitate, once in a while, to hide the truth about an airliner crash either to hide their role or to benefit from a “Noble Lie”.
