2* Next, The United States faked the landing on the moon.


3* Okay, Princess Diana was killed by the British Royal Family.


4* Next, the AIDS virus was created in a laboratory by the CIA.


5* The U.S. government knew in advance about the 9/11 attacks and did nothing to stop them.


6* Okay, a UFO with space aliens on board crashed near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.
