um, conspiracy theory?

Apparently as of, oh, 2 days ago, it became fashionable to say that the Middle East has a culture of conspiracy theories. And, while that is probably true, does that then mean that the US has a culture of blind belief in the impossible? Like, say, the President of the United States not being born in the country? Or that, a President can stand on an aircraft carrier dressed in a flight suit and declare that a war is over and the mission is accomplished, even if it's not, and have it be true?
