We don't have to go far back in time, just the adult lifetime of the current older American generation to list deception after deception.
We had the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert Kennedy by the CIA and its cover up by both political parties and the Warren Commission.
With JFK out of the way, we had the fake news Gulf of Tonkin incident used by the Johnson regime and the Democrats to start the Vietnam war that cost the US 50,000 American lives and our reputation. https://www.history.com/topics/vietnam-war/gulf-of-tonkin-resolution-1
After that the atrocities exploded. Not to name them all, we had the Clinton regime's violation of the word of the US Government when, taking advantage of Russian weakness with the collapse of the Soviet Union resulting from President Gorbachev's arrest by hardline members of the Politburo, Clinton moved NATO to Russia's border. American patriots hailed this fatal error as "giving communism a knock-out blow."
