For anyone who has never read the de-classified document OPERATION NORTHWOODS, you do not have a full picture of the extent to which the government has gone to to manipulate the people into supporting war. Then Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Lyman Lemnitzer was the "brains" behind Operation Northwoods. When he presented the plan to President John Kennedy, Kennedy balked. He must have thought he was dealing with a bunch of lunatics.

Those who do not know their history are bound to repeat it.







In his new expos 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.

This knowledge should shatter all illusions and explain much. Like who was really behind the sniper spree last year. It wasn't the patsy on trial...

Think this plan was also initiated in the "Gulf of Tonkin Incident"?

Yep, it's been proven that that was also BU#. It was the beginning of LBJ's end.

Northwoods proves that there are those within our government willing to execute the most heinous and treasonous acts to implement agendas that benefit only the elite. Makes anyone with a conscience wanna gag.

Just as plausible as any other theory. Maybe more was going on behind the curtain, than first let on.

Quote from ABC artcle;
The plans had the written approval of all of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and were presented to President Kennedy's defense secretary, Robert McNamara, in March 1962. But they apparently were rejected by the civilian leadership and have gone undisclosed for nearly 40 years.

"These were Joint Chiefs of Staff documents. The reason these were held secret for so long is the Joint Chiefs never wanted to give these up because they were so embarrassing," Bamford told ABCNEWS.com.

"The whole point of a democracy is to have leaders responding to the public will, and here this is the complete reverse, the military trying to trick the American people into a war that they want but that nobody else wants."

Sounds like someone dusted off the plan with regard to Iraq.

Yeah yeah yeah, some crazed general who proposed a joke of a plan. I am sure its not hte only time something ridiculous has been proposed. The world was a differant place in the 60's during the cold war and justifiability on various actions may of seemed more extreme than they shouldve been.

Anyways, the point is the ONW never took effect, so its a moot point anyways.

Hard for you isn't it Dreamz. To even think 9/11 might have been an operation northwoods that was approved.

New York burned while Bush read about Goats.

I have been aware of the Northwoods document for a while. A typical P-R-S scam.

That is so laughable to me. To say Bush had planned 9-11 so he could get into more oil while he declares the largest funding ever given to work on future fuel cells and have them implemented by 2010. Seems kind of ass-backwards to me. If your comparing 2001 america to America during the cold-war in the 60's is also a joke.

Bush may of had information on the terrorists planned ablities to attack with airliners, but so did Clinton and nothing was ever done. The fact of the matter is, you can have intelligence without it being very specific it is very easy to look over when you get your daily security briefings.

The "cold war" scare that whipped america into a military spending frenzy could easily be compared to this "war on terror" induced scare that has whipped our government into another massive military spend-athon...

edit: which also so means huge amounts of money for the military industrial complex

I believe 9-11 was just an updated version of Operation Northwoods.

Did anyone notice the look on Rumsfeld's face at the State of the Union speech, especially when Shrub was talking about ter'r? He had the most smug and wicked grin on his face. He's lovin' this war shyte. He's frokken creepy!

It is not a moot point! The fact that the elite seriously considered this and drafted a proposal about it, the act of killing innocent people to start a war, means that it's VERY PLAUSIBLE that the same government could stage 9/11 as well.

Why do you have a total inability to connect such simple dots?!

I'm surprised that ABC News website would cover this. Didn't they get in trouble for it?

It came out in May, 2001, before 9/11. The first paragraph below is shocking and horrifying. Now those who say that the US government would never carry out terrorist attacks on its own citizens can shut the f*** up.

abcnews.go.com...


In the early 1960s, America's top military leaders reportedly drafted plans to kill innocent people and commit acts of terrorism in U.S. cities to create public support for a war against Cuba.

Code named Operation Northwoods, the plans reportedly included the possible assassination of Cuban émigrés, sinking boats of Cuban refugees on the high seas, hijacking planes, blowing up a U.S. ship, and even orchestrating violent terrorism in U.S. cities.

The plans were developed as ways to trick the American public and the international community into supporting a war to oust Cuba's then new leader, communist Fidel Castro.

America's top military brass even contemplated causing U.S. military casualties, writing: "We could blow up a U.S. ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba," and, "casualty lists in U.S. newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation."


The rest of the article explains how these documents were leaked accidentally by the White House when they were meant to be destroyed.

Really sickening. The officials who drafted these plans are really really really sick and deserve to burn in hell.

Even Wikipedia has admitted to this plan in its entry on it:
