Then first question I tend to ask about any conspiracy theory is: “How many people have to be in on this to make it function, and how plausible is it that they all keep the secret over an extended period of time?"

Sometimes it’s plausible! Organized crime exists. Intelligence agencies exist. But you need a credible story about the mechanisms that sustain the necessary secrecy across the requisite number of people, which tend to involve a LOT of overhead on indoctrination & enforcement.
