Public policy scholar Lance deHaven-Smith discusses the concepts of "conspiracy theories" and SCADs--State Crimes Against Democracy. "Conspiracy theory" is a pejorative term introduced by the CIA. SCADs, though, are real crimes that high government officials (often conspiring together) committed.

Part 1 of this interesting talk discusses both concepts and tells some little-known facts about famous SCADs--including Watergate and candidate Nixon's scuttling of the Vietnam peace talks in 1968.
deHaven-Smith spoke in Denver on September 6, 2013. Robin Upton, of Unwelcome Guests ( provided an edited sound recording, which I have edited further.
