Ranging from suspected false flag operations to tales of espionage, Unsolved Conspiracies takes an analytical look at forty of the world’s most notorious plots, cover-ups, deceptions, and clandestine organizations. We may never know the truth behind many of these cases, whether it’s that of the British Prime Minister suspected of being a Soviet spy or the U.S. government accused of forging intelligence to justify going to war. If there is one thing we can say for certain, though, it’s that throughout history, unscrupulous people have conspired in secret to achieve their aims—and they are, no doubt, still plotting today. Some of the cases explored in this book may seem like nothing more than wild speculation based on paranoia and mistrust; in other cases there can be no doubt that a deception has taken place, though it is far from clear exactly how events unfolded. Taken together, the incidents presented here form a portrait of the tangled webs of lies and deceit spun by those who have been willing to go to almost any length to get what they want.
