Sounds like the movie "Capricorn One," as far as moon related conspiracy. Also, a short story I read once (in a collection, don't recall the title or author) about the US Air Force setting setting up a command post on the moon, then detecting an alien post already established. After much suspense and all, turns out the other post was the US Navy.
I still say the US was there first and Sputnik was a fake.
