United States Government Conspiracy Projects #3- Project SHAD was created by the United States Department of Defense in 1962. They intentionally exposed our military personnel with biological and chemical agents on 46 different occasions. This was done without the military personnel knowledge or consent. They wanted to experiment on how soldiers can be exposed to dangerous chemicals and continue to fight. This testing was conducted from 1962-1973. The Department of Defense refused to admit SHAD existed until 1998. Project SHAD Source
United States Government Conspiracy Projects #4- Project Ajax was a successful CIA operation to overthrow the government of Iran in 1953. It was executed by British and American intelligence to gain greater control over oil in that region. The American public may not have ever been aware of this if it were not for a leaked CIA document. A writer at the New York Times gained access to this document and wrote about it in 2000.

United States Government Conspiracy Projects #6- Tuskegee Syphilis Study ongoing from 1932 to 1972 knowingly killed hundreds of low-income African American men. U.S. Public Health Service wanted to experiment with the effects of untreated syphilis. Low-income African American men were lured into study with promise of free health care. Instead they were intentionally lied to and given placebo treatments. Even when they could have easily been saved by penicillin they were left to die for the benefit of the syphilis study program.

As a credit to the United States Government, at least we still have enough freedom of speech that these things can be written about.
