Operation Northwoods: US Plan To Create A False Flag To Attack Cuba

In 1962 the CIA put together plans to create support for a war to overthrow Fidel Castro.  This plan was called “Operation Northwoods”.

Code named Operation Northwoods, the plan, which had the written approval of the Chairman and every member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called for innocent people to be shot on American streets; for boats carrying refugees fleeing Cuba to be sunk on the high seas; for a wave of violent terrorism to be launched in Washington, D.C., Miami, and elsewhere. People would be framed for bombings they did not commit; planes would be hijacked. Using phony evidence, all of it would be blamed on Castro, thus giving Lemnitzer and his cabal the excuse, as well as the public and international backing, they needed to launch their war.

The idea may actually have originated with President Eisenhower in the last days of his administration. With the Cold War hotter than ever and the recent U-2 scandal fresh in the public’s memory, the old general wanted to go out with a win. He wanted desperately to invade Cuba in the weeks leading up to Kennedy’s inauguration; indeed, on January 3 he told Lemnitzer and other aides in his Cabinet Room that he would move against Castro before the inauguration if only the Cubans gave him a really good excuse. Then, with time growing short, Eisenhower floated an idea. If Castro failed to provide that excuse, perhaps, he said, the United States “could think of manufacturing something that would be generally acceptable.” What he was suggesting was a pretext a bombing, an attack, an act of sabotage carried out secretly against the United States by the United States. Its purpose would be to justify the launching of a war. It was a dangerous suggestion by a desperate president.

Although no such war took place, the idea was not lost on General Lemnitzer But he and his colleagues were frustrated by Kennedy’s failure to authorize their plan, and angry that Castro had not provided an excuse to invade.


To be honest, I have not really given a lot of credence to the 9/11 conspiracy, mostly because it is not a worthwhile discussion to have (it creates anger when you disagree with one side or the other).  Further, before my awareness of Operation Northwoods, there was no precedent that I knew of that supported the US Government creating false flag operations.  I could talk “false flag” to the average American, and they would likely tune out the remainder of the conversation.

But this shows, as early as 1962, a propensity to plan to victimize the citizens of our nation for the purpose of political expediency.  Take “The Iron Mountain” report.  Granted, the official story is that it is fiction.  However, enough has been discovered about it that it seems that it may not be as fictional as we would be led to believe.

On the 15th it was reported that “Gen. Hugh Shelton: Clinton Official Suggested Letting U.S. Plane Be Shot Down To Provoke War With Iraq”:

At one of my very first breakfasts, while Berger and Cohen were engaged in a sidebar discussion down at one end of the table and Tenet and Richardson were preoccupied in another, one of the Cabinet members present leaned over to me and said, “Hugh, I know I shouldn’t even be asking you this, but what we really need in order to go in and take out Saddam is a precipitous event — something that would make us look good in the eyes of the world. Could you have one of our U-2s fly low enough — and slow enough — so as to guarantee that Saddam could shoot it down?”

The hair on the back of my neck bristled, my teeth clenched, and my fists tightened. I was so mad I was about to explode. I looked across the table, thinking about the pilot in the U-2 and responded, “Of course we can …” which prompted a big smile on the official’s face.

“You can?” was the excited reply.

“Why, of course we can,” I countered. “Just as soon as we get your ass qualified to fly it, I will have it flown just as low and slow as you want to go.”


During a private two-hour meeting in the Oval Office on Jan. 31, 2003, [Bush] made clear to Prime Minister Tony Blair of Britain that he was determined to invade Iraq without the second resolution, or even if international arms inspectors failed to find unconventional weapons, said a confidential memo about the meeting written by Mr. Blair’s top foreign policy adviser…
“The U.S. was thinking of flying U2 reconnaissance aircraft with fighter cover over Iraq, painted in U.N. colours,” the memo says, attributing the idea to Mr. Bush. “If Saddam fired on them, he would be in breach.”

As is easily seen, it isn’t that hard to believe that false flag operations are a part and parcel to governance.  Further, it seems that the concept behind it is to create a state of perpetual war with the hope of keeping the economy burning strong.

This, to me, is completely logical based on what we have seen.  Does it really seem logical that all these third world countries would be so ready to go to war with the US?

We have just about run through the Muslim threat (based on public attention spans).  What is next?  Project Bluebeam (the project reputed to be a false flag operation for alien invasion)?  It is technologically possible now (a future posting will be made on this).

Regardless, I will be very suspicious of any attempts to go to war with any country.  Until they come to our shores, I am not interested in fighting anyone else.  I only wish such was the official policy of our nation.

  1. So what IS your option on 911? I’ve never believed from day one. When buildings fall down at just short of free fall speeds though the path of most resistance and are PULVERIZED to dust it is difficult for me to see how anyone could buy that simple plane crashes did this alone. Of course the point of a false flag op is to spoon feed disinformation to the public. Which is why tales about pop planes, holograms, no plane hit the pentagon theories are so popular in certain circles of the 911 truth movement. Divide and conquer using multiple conflicting memes as weapons.

    • I think you sum up my thoughts pretty well. Sure, it COULD be just like we are told. But that doesn’t seem likely. Of course, I am no physicist. 🙂 But things like how hot the site stayed, and for how long, do not seem to match what you would expect from the fires created. I am not sure jet fuel makes that kind of heat. And then all the reports of multiple blasts.

      Did you see the video i posted about “diminished reality”? There is another technology that actually can create holograms in 3d projected on flexible surfaces.

      Of course, that is all fairly “out there”. But interesting to consider as thought experiments.

      I don’t know. I don’t buy the official story. But don’t have any specific path that I see as there are several possibilities that all meet seem plausible.

      I will tell you, I don’t buy the USS Cole attack as anything but a false flag. I don’t know how anyone could.

      Thanks for stopping by. I had some Ubuntu troubles that I worked out, but that took up a majority of my night.

      • No I’ll have to look it up but I’m not in the hologram or fake plane camp. It adds too many complications. If the goal was to fake a hijacking then you have the problem of disposing of the real planes and the crew and passengers aboard them. So why NOT slam them into the buildings? Easy and does the job. Holograms mean that you have to have projectors, you risk the hologram not working right, the planes fail to show on radar and there is no certainty that you can compromise EVERY air traffic controller in the Northeast who might go to the press and say that there wasn’t any airplanes near the WTC on 911. It adds to many complications when knock out gas and a remote control does the job much neater.

        Same issues with the double plane theories. You risk being seen doing the swap out and that blows the op. And you still have to get rid of the real planes and the humans on them.

        IMO this was a real hijacking that got hijacked by the Feds or another intel group. CIA(or other agents) were acting as hijackers or real hijackers that got helped by the CIA hijacked the planes. (The Feds have entrapped several wannabee terrorists the same way.) They were probably going to do the traditional hijacking for ransom/demands and then got taken out by GAS planted on board. The hijacked planes get “hijacked” and then via remote control are slammed into buildings.

        The targets are preped with bombs so that they self destruct. There is no way that the energy of the plane crash nor the jet fuel could cause the exploding building that vaporize 1000 bodies, pulverize 100 1 acre 4 inch concrete slabs, rip to sheds the massive steel structure of the buildings, and then hurl those steel beams upto 500 ft away. The buildings are not failing down. They are EXPLODING right in front of us.

        Then WTC7 falls down and it was never hit by a plane and what pictures exist show a building with only minor damage.

        The pentagon gets hit in the one section that was reinforced for blast damage right after the pilot who supposedly flunked flight school performs an almost impossible hairpin turn and dives in to the building.

        The plane that crashed into the ground in PA looks to have been shot down. Debris fell down to three locations. Most people don’t know that. The plane had to have been damaged in the air for that to happen. Now maybe there was a bomb aboard but that likely would have broken up the plane completely, Lockerbie style with debris scattered all over the area for miles. In this case an engine fell two miles from the main crash site. Other debris 8 miles away. A heat seeking missile would hit the engine. An on board bomb would be in the main cabin and break up the fuselage.

        I can go on but you get my point. This was a terrorist act by an intel agency(ies) not by some yahoo in a cafe in Afghanistan.

      • You know, i cannot argue with any of that, either.

        I have solutions on what could have happened to the people….but you would think i were truly crazy then.

        I also have solutions to how you can project a hologram into 3-d space without a projector. And Mike Muuss had his “Paint The Night” program that he died while working on. If you can’t find anything on it, let me know. I have the slideshow downloaded. After I found it and linked to it, it disappeared from the US Army website.

  2. I don’t doubt the ability to have holograms. I just don’t see the point. I’ve spoken to people that were THERE. One guy almost got hit by a part of a landing gear. If you are going to claim that the holograms conceal the missiles it ignores the problem of “what if something goes wrong?”

    Good military plans have contingencies should something go wrong. For example the fourth plane in the attack may have been such a circumstance. Passengers fought back so they aborted by shooting it out of the sky. If your hologram fails you suddenly have an uncloaked missile and no good way to explain it. If too many people see the shoot down all the government has to do is say “We had to shoot it down to protect the capital.” If not they can trot out the heroes dying while taking back the plane meme.

  3. Yeah, like i said…interesting thought experiment.

    Have you seen The Big Lebowski. I watched it tonight (again) and it made me think about this. There is a line in there where they say something like, “When a crime happens, you just like towards who would benefit the most.”

    There are lots of folks who would benefit quite a bit. Perhaps the CIA would the most. Losing lots of records for things you don’t want to be held accountable for?

    Or all the gold that was whitewashed, after being “destroyed”.

    If terrorists did do 9/11, they sure did help some people quite a bit.

  4. I think you are getting hit with spam bots there BFFT.
