Governments are actually very very successful at what they are designed to do. The problem is you think it's supposed to do something different.
As far as conspiracy is concerned, it's not the government that actually does things. The oligarchy uses the government as a tool when they need it. But all government really is is the initiation of the use of force with a perception of legitimacy.
And if they are too incompetent to pull it off, how do you explain things like Gulf of Tonkin incident??? the sinking of the Lusitania??
Read Anatomy of the State by Murray Rothbard, then you'll understand the true nature of gov.
