Reserve the name calling until you are reasonably sure you're right.

Hopefully this is all sarcasm or else you're a bunch of idiots.
You didn't read about Operation Northwoods, a plan drawn up and signed off on by the Joint Chiefs of Staff?
"The documents show "the Joint Chiefs of Staff drew up and approved plans for what may be the most corrupt plan ever created by the U.S.
government," writes Bamford.
The Joint Chiefs even proposed using the potential death of astronaut John Glenn during the first attempt to put an American into orbit as a false
pretext for war with Cuba, the documents show.
Should the rocket explode and kill Glenn, they wrote, "the objective is to provide irrevocable proof ’Ä¶ that the fault lies with the Communists et
all Cuba [sic]."
The plans were motivated by an intense desire among senior military leaders to depose Castro, who seized power in 1959 to become the first communist
leader in the Western Hemisphere ’Äî only 90 miles from U.S. shores.
The earlier CIA-backed Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba by Cuban exiles had been a disastrous failure, in which the military was not allowed to provide
firepower.The military leaders now wanted a shot at it."
FOIA petitions and the statute expiring on Pentagon papers being released uncovered this.
