Yes, along with the possible connection to 9/11, yes. Read the original post in its entirety.
What is the proof that this was used in 9/11?
There is no proof. No one has claimed it as fact. It is simply supposition on a conspiracy board.
What does blaming all Islamic radical attacks as "a U.S. plan which is being promoted only by the U.S. government and it's media" as you are trying
to assert, have to do with operations Northwood?
I didn't say that. I didn't assert that. You are putting words (with quotations around them, no less) into my mouth. Show me where I said that.
Elsewise, please don't mis-quote me.
You are using this thread for the daily "Let's blame everything that happens in the world on the U.S."
Operations Northwood was a draft plan, which was rejected.
I never said differently. (Where do you get the "draft" part? It was an official plan by top military.)

Understood. What is the point? I'm not implying that Northwoods and 9/11 are exactly alike so they must be connected. I'm simply saying that if the
plan of Northwood was seriously considered at some point by top military officials, it doesn't seem like a huge stretch to me to think that our
government or military or both might make and carry out
another silimar plan. That's all anyone is asserting here, I believe.

Once again, it was not what the USA government was planning!
This has been stated and proven by several members posting in this thread; how many times must it be repeated?
I'm sorry, you're right, it was the Joint Cheifs of Staff, the heads of all branches of the US military. Is that correct? Perhaps a link or a quote
might be more helpful than a frustrated denial with no additional information. Just a thought.
And if this plan was presented to Cheney or Bush or Rumsfeld today (or 5 years ago), I don't have any faith that any of them would have the nerve,
the guts, the honor or integrity that JFK did to turn it down. Bush is no JFK.
Just because the government of the 60s turned it down, doesn't mean today's government would. In fact, it's my opinion that today's government
would be the ones pushing for it.
