As I sit here and write this article regarding Operation Northwoods Declassified documents, we’re remembering one of the darkest days in American history, a day when Towers 1, 2, and 7 at the World Trade Center in New York collapsed, killing 3,000 and permanently scarring either physically or emotionally thousands more. Something I’m linking the actions seen in Northwoods to, except unlike Northwoods, 9/11 actually played out as a pretext to justify American intervention in the Middle East.
It was an unnecessary act of violence to say the least, but as always, does the official story hold water?
Before you read any further, I’m here to present my side of the case that 9/11 wasn’t a conspiracy theory; it was a conspiracy fact. I’m not a conspiracy theorist. A conspiracy theorist is just that—they theorize that this could’ve happened, or that could’ve happened, or that our own government caused 9/11 to occur and that it was an inside job from the beginning.
But when I ask why this is the case, I’m met with blank stares. Sure, they’re spot on in pointing out the obvious: 9/11 was indeed a conspiracy, but why? What was the motive? Why, when in 1997 neoconservatives who would later serve in the George W. Bush administration sign a document entitled ‘Project for A New American Century (PNAC),’ also known as Rebuilding America’s Defenses?
Some of the signers included the recently ousted National Security Advisor in John Bolton, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, and even the now-former Vice President of the United States, Dick Cheney, who was also responsible for the First Gulf War.
But let’s start with Northwoods.
The US Government Will Commit Acts of Terror
Most Americans would scoff and say, “our government would never do this,” but what if there was a time 39 years prior that the government was just about to do it?
Operation Northwoods most certainly points to an unfortunate fact:
Yes, our government is not only capable, but willing to commit violent acts of terrorism against the American people, and in collaboration with the Department of Defense (DoD), and the US Military’s Joints Chief of Staff, along with the CIA.
So, without further ado, let’s jump into some of the facts regarding Operation Northwoods and why it’s important today.
Known officially as “Justification for US Military Intervention in Cuba,” Northwoods is described as a Top Secret memorandum outlining US plans to commit pretexts that would justify a Cuban invasion.
The proposals called for the assassination of Cuban-American citizens and developing a Cuban terror false flag in the Miami area, along with other cities in Florida and ultimately, in Washington D.C.
Other proposals included the sinking of Cuban refugee boats, faking a Cuban air attack on civilian jetliners, and even going as far as to re-enact an attack similar to the one on the USS Maine in 1898 by blowing up a US ship in Cuban waters (read that last bit a few times).
At the time, Northwoods may’ve been the most corrupt plan ever created by the US government.
Facts from the Actual Document
The document, signed by Chairman of the Joints, Chief of Staff L.L. Lemnitzer, stated the following, copied straight from the documents themselves, which I’ll link to below this article:
Heading I: The Problem
As requested by Chief of Operations, the Cuba Project, the Joints Chiefs of Staff are to indicate brief but precise description of pretexts which they consider would provide justification for US Military intervention in Cuba.
Heading II: Facts Bearing the Problem
It is recognized that any action which becomes pretext for US Military intervention in Cuba will lead to a political decision which then would lead to military action. Cognizance has been taken a suggestive course of action proposed by the US Navy relating to generated instances in the Guantanamo area.
Heading III: Discussion
The suggested courses of action appended to Enclosure A are based on the premise that US Military intervention will result from a period of heightened US-Cuban tensions which place the United States in the position of suffering justifiable grievances. World opinion, and the United Nations forum should be favorably affected by developing the international image of the Cuban government as rash and irresponsible, and as an alarming and unpredictable threat to the peace of the Western Hemisphere.
While the forgoing premise can be utilized at the present time it will continue to hold good only as long as there can be reasonable certainty that US Military intervention in Cuba would not directly involve the Soviet Union. There is yet no bilateral mutual support agreement binding the USSR to the defense of Cuba. Cuba has not yet become a member of the Warsaw Pact, nor have the Soviets established Soviet bases in Cuba in the pattern of US bases in Western Europe. Therefore, since time appears to be an important factor in the resolution of the Cuba problem, all projects are suggested within the time frame of the next few months.
Heading IV: Conclusion
The suggested courses of action appended to Enclosure A satisfactorily respond to the statement of the problem. However, these suggestions should be forwarded as a preliminary submission suitable for planning purposes, and together with similar inputs from other agencies, provide a basis for development of a single, integrated, time-phased plan to focus all efforts on the objective of justification of US military intervention in Cuba.
Heading VI: Recommendations
a. Enclosure A together with its attachments should be forwarded to the Secretary of Defense for approval and transmittal to the Chief of Operations, Cuba Project.
b. This paper NOT be forwarded to commanders of unified or specified commands.
c. This paper NOT be forwarded to US officers assigned to NATO activities.
d. This paper NOT be forwarded to US Delegation, United Nations Military Staff Committee.
As you can see from the information provided above, the US government was indeed in the act of looking for a series of pretexts to justify intervention in Cuba, preferably after a period of heightened tensions between the US and Cuba. Such tensions would be used to rally support not only in the US, but support in the West Bloc of nations that sided with the US during the Cold War.
Some skeptics to conspiracy facts might point out that the above stated nothing specific about the actual activities surrounding the pretexts; it just stated pretexts, which could’ve been anything.
Let’s dig deeper and take a look at the memorandum relayed to US Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara.
From the Document
This plan, incorporating projects selected from the attached suggestions, or from other sources, should be developed to focus all efforts on a specific ultimate objective which would provide adequate justification for US Military intervention.
Such a plan would enable a logical build-up of incidents to be combined with other seemingly unrelated events to camouflage the ultimate objective and create the necessary impression of Cuban rashness and irresponsibility on a large scale, directed at other countries as well as the United States.
The plan would also properly integrate and time phrase the courses of action to be pursued. The desired resultant from the execution of this plan would be to place the United States in the apparent position of suffering the defensible grievances from a rash and irresponsible government of Cuba and to develop an international image of a Cuban threat to peace in the Western Hemisphere.
Time is an important factor in resolution of the Cuban problem. Therefore, the plan should be so time-phased that projects would be operable within the next few months.
Inasmuch as the ultimate objective is overt military intervention, it is recommended that primary responsibility for developing military and para-military aspects of the plan for both overt and covert military be assigned the Joints Chief of Staff.
Incidents to Establish Credible Attack
Okay, so even here, skeptics probably will state that nothing specific has been mentioned. Well, let’s migrate to the bottom of Page 10 of the document, where actions are listed, though not in chronological order. Again, I’m going to list out the actions word for word from the document itself.
1. Start rumors (many). Use clandestine radio.
2. Land friendly Cubans in uniform “over-the-fence” to stage attack on base.
3. Capture Cuban (friendly) saboteurs inside base.
4. Start riots near the base main gate (friendly Cubans).
5. Blow up ammunition inside the base; start fires.
6. Burn aircraft on the base (sabotage).
7. Lob mortar shells from outside of base into base. Some damages to installations.
8. Capture assault teams approaching from the sea or vicinity of Guantanamo City.
9. Capture militia group which storms the base.
10. Sabotage ship in harbor large fires — naphthalene.
11. Sink ship near harbor entrance. Conduct funerals for mock victims.
b. United States would respond by executing offensive operations to secure water and power supplies, destroying artillery and mortar emplacements which threaten the base.
c. Commence large-scale United States military operations.
Okay, so the next section has to do with ‘Remember the Maine,’ basically restaging the supposed Spanish assault on the USS Maine, but I want to skip to the next section which states, “We could develop a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities, and even in Washington.”
The Document’s Further Statements
The terror campaign could be pointed at Cuban refugees seeking haven in the United States. We could sink a boatload of Cubans in route to the United States (real or stimulated). We could foster attempts on lives of Cuban refugees in the United States even to the extent of wounding in instances to be widely publicized.
Exploding a few plastic bombs in carefully chosen spots, the arrest of Cuban agents and the release of prepared documents substantiating Cuban involvement also would be helpful in projecting the idea of an irresponsible government.
Use of MIG-type aircraft by US pilots could provide additional provocation. Harassment of civil air, attacks on the surface shipping and destruction of US military drone aircraft by MIG type planes would be useful as complementary actions.
An F-86 properly painted would convince air passengers that they saw a Cuban MIG, especially if the pilot of the transport were to announce such fact. The primary drawback to this suggestion appears to be the security risk inherent in obtaining or modifying an aircraft. However, reasonable copies of the MIG could be produced from US resources in about three months.
Finally, the most striking one.
It is possible to create an incident which will demonstrate convincingly that a Cuban aircraft has attacked and shot down a chartered civil airliner enroute from the United States to Jamaica, Guatemala, Panama, or Venezuela. The destination would be chosen only to cause the flight plan route to cross Cuba. The passengers could be a group of college students off on a holiday or any grouping of persons with a common interest to support chartering a non-scheduled flight.
An aircraft at Eglin AFB would be painted and numbered as an exact duplicate for a civil registered aircraft belonging to a CIA proprietary organization in the Miami area. At a destinated time the duplicate would be substituted for the actual civil aircraft and would be loaded with select passengers, all boarded under carefully prepared aliases. The actual registered aircraft would be converted to a drone.
From a rendezvous point, the passenger-carrying aircraft will descend to minimum altitude and go directly into an auxiliary field at Eglin AFB where arrangements will have been made to evacuate the passengers and return the aircraft to its original status. The drone aircraft meanwhile will continue to fly the filed flight plan. When over Cuba the drone will being transmitting on the international distress frequency a “MAY DAY” message stating it is under attack from a Cuban MIG aircraft. The transmission will be interrupted by destruction of the aircraft which will be triggered by radio signal.
Clearly, the US has done this before, and it has done so more than once. Now, I want to take a look at an article regarding 9/11 from Lew Rockwell’s site posted today entitled ‘When Americans Fell for 9/11.
Talking About 9/11
The article correctly states America’s status in the world, with its final remnants of freedom taken and morphed into the tyrannical police state it has become, complete with countless violations against the Bill of Rights, shattered nations including Yemen, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, and Pakistan, among others, as a direct consequence of 9/11.
I want to briefly outline a few articles that this one links to, which comes from one of my favorite sites, Global Research.
Article One, which is entitled ‘Where was Osama bin Laden on September 10th, 2001? One Day Before 9/11, His Whereabouts Were Known.’
A CBS report suggested bin Laden was admitted into a Pakistani military hospital fewer than 24 hours before 9/11 and it wasn’t clear as to when he was released. Where would bin Laden have been coordinating the attack from?
A hospital bed? Laptop? Cell phone?
Note that US military and intelligence advisors took up residency at the same hospital bin Laden was admitted to. There’s no way he would’ve slipped in or out unnoticed.
If this was the case, and note that by this time relations between bin Laden and the US had soured since the US assisted bin Laden and his Mujahideen in the Soviet-Afghan War, bin Laden could’ve been arrested upon arrival.
But that didn’t happen.
Despite this Donald Rumsfeld repeatedly claimed bin Laden’s whereabouts were unknown. Recall that Rumsfeld was one of the signers of PNAC.
Below the cited source, you can read up on a transcript from that same CBS broadcast.
In another article from Rockwell entitled ‘9/11, after 18 years,’ the findings of the collapse of WTC Tower 7 also proved that the official story was false in an investigation given by an international team of civil engineers (source below the article).
So, why have we never heard about this?
Mainstream news sources are beyond notorious for simply sweeping such findings that contradict their agenda under the table. Let’s face it; most of us get our information from mainstream media outlets, therefore, most of the world will never know such a report exists. If the TV doesn’t tell them, or worse if their public school doesn’t tell them, then to these people, no such report will exist and they’ll never find the truth.
The 9/11 commission report ignored all forensic evidence and only through the private sector have such real investigations been performed. Remember that the 9/11 commission report was in fact NOT an investigation.
So, what else did this investigation find?
1. Use of nanothermite in the destruction of WTC Towers 1 and 2.
2. More than 100 first responders testified they experienced explosions occurring inside the towers, with the main explosion being in the sub-basement prior to when the first airplane hit the tower.
3. The skill used, when both military and civilian pilots stated, that the flight maneuvers in the WTC and Pentagon were far beyond the skill of an alleged hijacker.
4. While the article does state that no wreckage was found from the sites concerning the WTC and Pentagon, I conducted some research and found inconclusive evidence regarding this. Personally, I do believe that the planes indeed hit their objectives, however at the same time, I also question that they caused the WTC to collapse. Looking at video evidence, the collapse is strikingly similar to the implosion of a sports stadium. Therefore, I’m not going to go on record and state the planes didn’t strike the towers, and I think video evidence proves me right. Again, I’m looking for facts here, not conspiracy theories.
I love how the article goes into the motivations regarding 9/11, which if you look at the claim and see the events playing out before us, along with the neoconservatives signing off on PNAC, it makes perfect sense.
The claim is this, taken directly from the article:
On the basis of the known evidence, knowledgeable and informed people have concluded that 9/11 was an inside job organized by Vice President Dick Cheney, his stable of neoconservatives, and Israel for the purpose of reconstructing the Middle East in Israel’s interest and enriching the US military/security complex in the process.
With US involvement in the Middle East since 9/11, the objective, as stated in PNAC, was to reshape it in the image that could be backed by the West, which would of course serve Israel’s interests as well, especially with the Israeli-based oil company called Genie Energy, on whose advisory board sits Dick Cheney, along with Lord Jacob Rothschild, the relative of Lionel Rothschild, whom the Balfour Declaration was written to from former British PM Arthur Balfour. Couple this with the US’ profits in weapons sales to nations like Israel, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Qatar, just to name a few, and one can easily point to the ‘new Pearl Harbor’ outlined in PNAC, written by those same neoconservatives with the goal of reshaping the Middle East, either as a carefully planned and coordinated conspiracy which could’ve started as early as the fall of the Soviet Union as a means to administer a US-led takeover and reshaping of the Middle East.
At the end of the day, the rich military-industrial complex got richer, civil liberties died, and Orwellian-like propaganda motivated wars in Iraq, Libya, and Syria, three nations mentioned in PNAC, with Iran now on the chopping block here in 2019.
Thanks for reading. Note that the typos taken from the documents were intentional, as I purposely copied them word for word.
