Have any of you ever heard of Operation Northwoods.....
I only heard of it recently from a friend of mine. After reading this I'm horrified and bewildered:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Northwoods


I hate Castro's regime but I mean that they would actually fake terrorist attacks on American soil just to justify a war with Castro is amazing. Is this valid or was this some kind of kooky Art Bell/UFO thing that somebody faked?

1. It's quite valid
If you do a bit more searching on it, you can find the copies of the declassified, official documents:
http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/news/20010430 /

Here's a link from ABC about it that came out when the docs were declassified:

3. I first heard about this around the time of 9/11 on Pacifica Radio
but since then it's also gotten exposure on more "mainstream" channels as well.

4. yes its been posted numerous times here
Also there was a commission during Fords administration that was dedicated to reminding people about the evil of the USSR. I forget the name of it. Cheney and Rummy were part of that.

5. Would they actually fake terrorist attacks on Americans -
to start a war. Hmmmmm.

Yes, there is plenty of information from the declassified papers from the pentagon. Try google and you will be fascinated by the reading material.

It is amazing what our country has done and once you wake up to it you will never be able to go asleep again or close your eyes to it.

7. It is real. There are many signed documents avail. now about it..
JFK said no way to it... two weeks later.... he was assasinated...

American Perspectives gave coverage to prisonplanet.com 's Alex Jones ..... go to the website...maybe you can see his latest about the 9/11 theories and it began with the False-flag incidents that have occured in our past history, he gets into depth regarding a couple of them, and it includes Operation Northwoods.......

8. it's hard to believe it's real,
but there is a history of false flag operations.
I remember when Timothy McVeigh was captured, he said the
children were just collateral damage. So people are capable of this
kind of stuff for the *bigger cause*.

11. Yes, it institutionalized and legitimized secret false flag operations
... for future administrations. To paraphrase Abraham Lincoln: You can fool some of the people all the time, and you can fool all of the people some of the time, but now you can fool all of the people all the time.

14. a lot of people were completely obsessive about Cuba/Castro at that time..
There were, especially in the military, people that just wanted to bomb the fuck out of Cuba, take it over and make it a client state.
you can imagine how apoplectic these people were when it came out that the USSR was heading for Cuba with nuke missiles.....
kennedy held that bunch in check....and look where it got him.

the upshot of the CubanMissle Crisis: The USSR withdrew the missles but Kruschev basically got what he wanted....a promise from Kennedy there would be no invasion of Cuba.

15. meet the new boss
same as the old boss.

Things like this are why We The People need to ensure that we have a transparent government, and that We The People are the ones in charge, while still remaining a Constitutional Republic, of course - I think the country has just gotten more and more off track and needs some fixing.

The Pukes idea of fixing it is akin to destroying your car because it has a leaky hose. I want us to fix the damn car, cause it really can be the nicest one on the road if we clean all the crap off and give it a little tune-up.

16. Just watched Disk 1 of American Scholars Symposium
9/11 and the Neo-Con Agenda: Facing the Facts. Op Northwoods is mentioned along with other operations conducted by our government.

If you want to see more of the symposium than what was shown on C-Span, you can get the 4 disk series, for a donation, from:
http://justicevision.blogspot.com/2006/07/democracy-dig...

and I recommend it!

17. I hate to have to say that this is valid
You can find links to copies of the original documents and more info at this link.

http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Operation_No...

You have to understand that there are usually certain individuals within the defense/security apparatus of any nation who, from my point of view, are unglued. It's not the first time false flag operations have been done to justify a war, be glad the sitting president at the time sent the psychos packing.

Sickening to say the least.
