1: the u.s. government has and will lie to further any agenda that they deem necessary.
2: the u.s. government has no problem using it's own people to accomplish the first no matter the cost.
3: the u.s. government will go above and beyond what most of the general public believe they are capable of to protect the above 1 & 2.
Just look at the things the government did to soldiers during ww2 all the way to a couple yrs ago with the fast and furious gun deals they were making and then using it to push gun control until the fbi agent blew the whistle. Again a select few decide and the rest of the machine works to either further the agenda or try to keep it hidden.....
