|The cover-up sides of deep events tend to be much more complex and instructive than their commission - an assassination is a relatively routine task as opposed to hiding an assassination.
A cover-up is an attempt to hide evidence of illegal action, error, incompetence, or other embarrassing information. Cover-ups often happen in deep events such as false flags (such as with 9-11), but can also happen on a smaller, more precise scale to hide foreknowledge of an organisation (such as with MH370). Researchers and the CCM often make a distinction between just one deep state operative in the chain of events and organisations doing the same thing, but that is often a limited hangout using patsies and handlers such as cut-outs.
Personnel involved in deceptive actions such as false flag attacks need at least one cover story. For example, after Saar Noam Ben Zvi and Salvador Guersson Smecke were arrested with firearms and explosives in the Mexican parliament, they initially said to belonged to a private security company and that their presence there was intended to offer their services to some legislators.
Multiple cover stories
Large deep events may have innumerable cover stories, deployable at need, to allow more flexible response to unknown cicrumstances. One common ploy is sheepdipping of the personnel involved to give some credence to their misdirection. Mark Gorton wrote about the JFK Assassination that "the coup plotters had no way of knowing that things would go so smoothly, so they embedded within Oswald a variety of cover stories which could have been deployed under different scenarios. Oswald could have been made to look like a racist, a Cuban, a Russian, or even to have mob ties. However, since the Coup went so close to plan, he was declared to be a lone nut and dismissed as such."
|A tool of the deep state to undermine opposition. Anyone who believes in high level corruption (holds "conspiracy beliefs") is assumed to be mentally abnormal and deficient, although the majority of the population do so.
|"Conspiracy theory/Academic research"
|Like "terrorism research", this is long on assumptions and short on empirical investigation (especially of the historical record). It is part of a project to demonize any criticism of official narratives and promote deep state denialism.
|Deep state functionary Lee Harvey Oswald, the canonical "lone nut", described himself as "a patsy" on his arrest and was killed in police custody by another USDS-affiliated lone nut. The commercially-controlled media continue to obscure the later finding of the HSCA, that JFK was killed by a conspiracy.
