CIA: Origin of the term Conspiracy Theorist.
There is an old CIA memo from 1967 to all bureau chiefs around the world. This memo is the source of the phrase “Conspiracy Theorist.” After the Warren Commission published its conclusions about Kennedy’s assassin, books were published casting doubt about the report’s conclusions. The CIA instructed its agents to quash all debates by labeling anyone asking questions as Conspiracy Theorists. What was the CIA so afraid of? What’s wrong with questions and debate? What were they trying to hide? Why is it that anyone who questions the nature of COVID-19, potential treatments, and concerns about vaccines is labeled a Conspiracy Theorist?
