I also believe that US Air Force have intentionally allowed UFO conspiracy theories to propagate because it provided good cover for a lot of experimental aircraft testing. I just can't believe that their PR has been so incompetent as to not be able to defuse many of these rumors.
I saw a great documentary on operation OXCART (I know you about it, mate, but for the sake of other members, it was a highly-classified aviation operation at Area 51) which basically confirms this.
jln22: Zionist organisations have been around for many years:
The purpose of these organisations is to support the state of Israel by building farms, performing irrigation and supporting the notion that Jews have a right to the land. However, their is no valid basis for the hypothesis that a Zionist organisation somehow controls the media and banking. Sure, there are media institutions and banks which are/were led by or founded by Jews, but there are many others which aren't.
Proponents of the idea that "Zionists run the world" are simply extending facts to utterly absurd conclusions. In any case, I call it thinly veiled antisemitism.
I'm also rather unsettled by people who deny that the Holocaust occurred as history books tell us. Sure, there are many aspects of history which are uncertain and we could certainly know more about them, but the Holocaust isn't really one of them given the myriad of documents, first hand survivor accounts and accounts from those who liberated the camps. Holocaust deniers will tell you that they're simply critically questioning history, but given that they can't substantiate their notions with evidence, they really have nothing of merit to say. Again, I think that denying that the Holocaust occurred as history tells us it did just boils down to antisemitism.
As for me, I've never been one for conspiracy theories. I like to look at matters objectively and form a reasoned opinion from the facts. Sadly, conspiracy theories virtually never present a more rigorous conclusion in this regard than the official explanation.
