Area 51, Watergate, MK Ultra - as different as these three topics may seem, they’re all part of a series of massive government cover-ups. In the world of government conspiracies, something doesn’t have to be completely outlandish to get covered up. It just has to be kind of illegal, or at least make someone in the government look bad. For instance, whether the bomb lost near Tybee Island was an armed or unarmed nuke depends on who you ask, and who you believe.

For every whisper of a downed UFO, there are hundreds of real secret government projects that we’ve never heard about, and that may never be declassified. That's why it’s always interesting to read about the secrets of the government that have actually been revealed. This list of the most successful government cover-ups covers a wide range of government secrets ranging from assassination attempts to mind control. Put on your tinfoil hat, it’s time to get weird.

Whether or not you want to believe it, every president (whether Democrat or Republican) has knowledge of hidden government secrets. Some of them have to do with illicit military tactics, while others involve hidden railroads and alien conspiracies. It’s entirely possible that some of the government secrets on this list are fabrications or extensions of the truth. But the scariest stories are the ones that are 100% verified and true.

Check your phone for wiretaps and dig into this list of the most successful US government secrets leaked. Vote up the biggest government cover-ups, and leave us a comment full of your craziest super real conspiracy theories.
