Many conspiracy theories surround nearly every war the USA has entered since the American Civil War.  Since the Spanish American War in the late 1800, these theories may, in fact, be correct and have been taken up by other authors.  

Mark Twain once wrote:

“Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self- deception.”

Some thinkers feel that Twain’s words have been buried and hidden from the American public in order to pull credence away from the Anti-Imperialism movement and a string of false flag attacks (inside jobs) used as excuses to wage war.

Fortunately, Twain’s materials are not hidden, but are accessible through postsecondary schools and an autobiography, the first volume of which appeared in 2010. He asked that 100 years pass before publishing and his wishes were granted. Two more volumes await publication. In the meantime, we have his essays and historians’ interpretations of them, at:
