Conspiracy Theories and Cover-ups – Government Investigation Books

This article overviews some of the most popular government investigation books. The books cover the most famous government-led investigations, conspiracy theories, and cover-ups by government members.

Some of the most famous and most talked-about investigations throughout history were conducted by, or on, the United States government. The most famous government-led investigation was the 9/11 Commission Report, which investigated the security, communication, and intelligence breakdowns that led to coordinated terrorist attacks on the United States.

Throughout history, there have been many other essential and high-profile government investigations of U.S. presidents, congressmen, governors, and other public officials. These inquiries occur at all levels of government, from the local to the state and federal levels. 

The investigations involved many branches of the country’s law enforcement and intelligence agencies, and the outcomes were not always decisive.
