Operation Northwoods

  1. In his new exposé of the National Security Agency entitled Body of Secrets, author James Bamford highlights a set of proposals on Cuba by the Joint Chiefs of Staff codenamed OPERATION NORTHWOODS. This document, titled “Justification for U.S. Military Intervention in Cuba” was provided by the JCS to Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara on March 13, 1962, as the key component of Northwoods. Written in response to a request from the Chief of the Cuba Project, Col. Edward Lansdale, the Top Secret memorandum describes U.S. plans to covertly engineer various pretexts that would justify a U.S. invasion of Cuba. These proposals - part of a secret anti-Castro program known as Operation Mongoose - included staging the assassinations of Cubans living in the United States, developing a fake “Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington,” including “sink[ing] a boatload of Cuban refugees (real or simulated),” faking a Cuban airforce attack on a civilian jetliner, and concocting a “Remember the Maine” incident by blowing up a U.S. ship in Cuban waters and then blaming the incident on Cuban sabotage. Bamford himself writes that Operation Northwoods “may be the most corrupt plan ever created by the U.S. government.”

    If end justifies the means, 9/11 to what end?
  2. WBAI: Taking Aim: 9/11 as False Flag Operation
    Length: 57:54

    WBAI's "Taking Aim," which airs on Tuesdays at 5pm Eastern, did a show focusing on the September 11 attacks as a "false flag" operation, an operation where blame for an event is placed on a false target. They review important mainstream media stories and present the case. The show originally aired September 10, 2002.

    It's not important if you believe there is complicity, or a full false flag operation. You don't need to be a conspiracy theorist! However, it is very important to recognize that there is a mountain of contradictory elements within the official story. The official story simply can't be the truth. That much is certain, no two ways about.

    Therefore, any specific conspiracy theory is not really all that important, but the study of the event itself is something that no one can discredit, not Mr. Corn (ball) at The Nation, nor anyone else. The simple truth is that we are being lied to, and that we only have part of the story.

    In this context, the "Taking Aim" show is interesting. Give it a listen.

    It was rebroadcast on Guns & Butter, which now has a 2pm Pacific timeslot on KPFA. You can hear it over the Internet in real time. Contact them at their website for CDs. Contact Guns & Butter if you wish to broadcast.
