Most of those are tin-foil hat notions, but "Aliens exist" should not be conflated with the notion that "Aliens exist and anally probe people in advance of an invasion".

So the fact that we were intentionally misled about Iraq WMD's is a conspiracy?

I don't really think "Bush misled on Iraq WMDs" fits there on the same level as "Obama is the Antichrist" or "Vaccines are linked to autism".

tolallorti: I liked the one about the CIA developing crack. Don't really think they did, but at the same time it wouldn't surprise me.

Yeah that's another one of those "you might be wrong, but you certainly aren't crazy for thinking it" conspiracies.
Also, the government allowed 9/11 to happen.

In fact, a whole lot of these "conspiracies" just seem like reasonable interpretations of facts with inconvenient implications.

/I'm just going to have to assume the Atlantic wire is "in on it" and this whole thing is an elaborate push poll designed to associate anyone dissenting from the Official Story with the chemtrails crowd.

If by "lizard-people" you mean "full-blown psychopaths", then I agree.

Some of these things are or are not conspiracies just based on technicalities and delicate phrasing.

For instance, "Bush intentionally misled on Iraq WMDs" could be a conspiracy or could be a mundane truth, based on how you define "intentionally misled."  If you want to believe that Bush and Cheney sat around in a dark, smoky conference room, telling each other "we know Iraq has no WMDs, but we'll say they do to give us the pretext for invasion" then that's a conspiracy.  If you believe that Bush & Co. started from the assumption that Iraq had WMDs, and mostly just looked for evidence that reinforced their belief, then that's been documented a thousand times over.

Babwa Wawa: Most of those are tin-foil hat notions, but "Aliens exist" should not be conflated with the notion that "Aliens exist and anally probe people in advance of an invasion".

And the question was simply "Do you believe aliens exist, or not?" Frankly, that number is terrifyingly low. 47% of people think aliens do not exist? Earth is the only place in the entire universe with any life on it whatsoever? Now I agree with you that most people when asked that question are thinking it means "intelligent, space-faring aliens exist and have visited Earth" and not "a young planet in the Goldilocks zone of its star 180,000 light years away has managed to cultivate plant life" but still.
