I think most conspiracy theories are looked down upon because too often they'll lump in an entire group of people (the Governement) instead of getting specific (Obama). It seems to me all it takes is a handful of top level people handing out orders that their followers just accept and never question. Your statement "...Governments are inept at doing the most basic tasks" is spot on. We've all dealt with some government entity one way or another and I think we can all agree a lot of government workers were not at the tops of their class. All it takes is a few power hungry and cunning people to heard the sheep to their will. The saying "All it takes for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing" comes to mind.
If ignorance is bliss, Washington DC must be heaven.
