Operation Northwoods was a proposed false flag operation against the Cuban government, that originated within the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) of the United States government in 1962. The proposals called for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) or other U.S. government operatives to commit acts of terrorism against American civilians and military targets, blaming it on the Cuban government, and using it to justify a war against Cuba. The proposals were rejected by the Kennedy administration.
At the time of the proposal, communists led by Fidel Castro had recently taken power in Cuba. The operation proposed creating public support for a war against Cuba by blaming it for terrorist acts that would actually be perpetrated by the US Government. To this end, Operation Northwoods proposals recommended hijackings and bombings followed by the introduction of phony evidence that would implicate the Cuban government. It stated:
The desired resultant from the execution of this plan would be to place the United States in the apparent position of suffering defensible grievances from a rash and irresponsible government of Cuba and to develop an international image of a Cuban threat to peace in the Western Hemisphere.
I just learned about Operation Northwoods on an Infowars live broadcast. No, this kind of stuff isn't just conspiracy theory. The Northwoods document was published online in a more complete form, including cover memoranda, by the National Security Archive on 30 April 2001, (6 months before 9/11). The government declassified the documents then, and said they made it public (no they didn't).
Check this out if you werent aware already.
Thank you for the link, I read that last evening. We will never be free of the Traid, of which our criminal US government is a part of.
Just to name a few, GHW Bush, Bill Clinton, GW Bush, Obama...and Hillary are members of international organized crime (Bilderberg). We can go way back in history to see how nations have sold out their own people and made them poor and much worse. Henry Kissing and George Soros, they are notorious!
There are many operations being exposed in these historical times we are living in. People are realizing their country has been stolen. World government, a world economy, are a part of common vernacular now.
One of the heads of CFR came out recently saying, ok, we are an elite, it is a world government, ... we need to have a war of the elite against the people. He said, we're losing, the populous are taking over, we're in trouble.
Go Trump, Go UKIP.
Operation Northwoods demonstrates that our government, made up of human beings just like any government, is capable of considering, and of carrying out evil against its people. Many today like to consider America as being exceptional, and certainly we've been blessed with many good things, but Americans are flawed humans just like the rest of the world. We've begun to see in recent decades that things can go badly south here, in America, and we'll see it get far worse.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts. The real world of criminal government activities is much more interesting and insidious then the false narratives reported to the public. Its unbelievable, but its real! I feel as though you have a passion for the truth.
We have got to stand against the European Union and the North American Union folks. We don't have to be afraid of looking like nuts anymore, because Trump has opened up the discussion on world government, and the leaders of the world government are talking about it too.
The American Union is in place, Obama is meeting with leaders of Canada and Mexico. The president of Mexico called for a union with Mexico, the US and Canada the other day, its open for discussion now.
I do not want a totalitarian state, I want sovereignty.
