8 Crazy Conspiracy Theories That Turned Out to Be True

They started out as simple rumors spread by people of little credibility, however, history has shown us that, sometimes these urban legends hold a lot of truth. Discover eight conspiracy theories that turned out to be true.

For a long time, no one believed in the mafia. That a group of criminals who have a hierarchy and are organized could exist sounded too fanciful. In the end, the criminals had always been there.

The general public didnít know that the mafia was real until the famous mob snitch Joe Valachi spilled the beans. He didnít reveal only that, but also that they operated with everyone and they even had relationships with the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency), politicians, and senior officials.

For years, civilian groups and military personnel claimed that the United States (US) government had experimented on them without their consent. They were branded as crazy and socially excluded, but it was later discovered that many of these cases were actually true.

In the mid-70s, under the command of the US vice president Nelson Rockefeller, the CIA spent more than $ 20 million to secretly develop a program known as MK Ultra. According to declassified data, the program tried to find a truth serum with which to question the enemies of the nation. However, for this purpose, the agency used its own citizens. The scientists randomly selected people to be experimented uponó without their knowledge or consent ó in trials that included hallucinogenic drugs, hypnosis methods, and biological/radiological agents.

Today, many people believe that the end goal of the program was not the truth serum, but the development of mind control techniques.

Although today it is known for sure that asbestos causes cancer, there was a time when this fact was treated as a myth. Those affected considered that their diseases had been caused by the use of this building material, and believed that manufacturing companies conspired by hiding it. They were right.

Knowing the harmful effect of asbestos, manufacturers ignored claims and hid information for more than three decades. Finally, in 1962, the scandal was out.

First, it was a rumor, but later it was known to be true. In 1956, the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) created COINTELPRO, a program of counterintelligence designed to increase factionalism, cause confusion, and prompt desertions inside the Communist Party of the United States of America. Soon, the program expanded its targets to the Socialist Workers (1961), the Ku Klux Klan (1964), the Black Panthers, and the Nation of Islam. After this, it went against those groups that simply interfered with the wishes of the administration, such as pacifist and religious groups (1968).

Until 1971, COINTELPRO tried to expose, disrupt, mislead, discredit, or otherwise neutralize the activities of the leaders of these movements.

Since 1872, it is rumored that the American elite meets in natural private places to worship the statue of a giant owl and participate in other non-conventional rituals. Although not much is known about this cult, major television networks like NBC, CBC, and the BBC have confirmed its existence. They donít know if it is a simple cult or a power group such as the Freemasons.

In 1996, journalist Gary Webb uncovered something that many suspected: international drug trafficking could only be possible if organizations like the CIA partook in it. Apparently, the intelligence agency and other government agencies knew all the goings-on of the drug market and actively participated in trafficking and flooding the slums of Latin America with crack from Los Angeles to finance paramilitary groups fighting to overthrow the Sandinista government in Nicaragua.

In 1991, 15-year-old Nayirah reported the horror that was taking place in Iraq to the court and the media. According to her, Iraqi soldiers killed Kuwaiti children inside hospital incubators. Her story was so heartbreaking that she served as a catalyst and excuse for the US to initiate the 1991 Gulf War.

Later, it was discovered that Nayirah was, in reality, the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador in the US, Saud bin Nasir al-Sabah, and that her testimony about the Iraqi soldiers was orchestrated by the government to justify the invasion.

For a long time, the stories of Nazis with new identities and living in America were street legends, but when Operation Paperclip was declassified the stories were found to be true.

In 1945, the United States governmentís Office of Strategic Services recruited German scientists to serve their country. It was asked that they be men of science not involved in the Nazi party, and that was how it was supposed to happen. However, it was later discovered that the government falsified certain identities and work histories so that hundreds of people met the requirements.
