How those who ignore (and allow to be hidden) the past, are doomed to repeat it, how the Red Scare has been replaced by Islamophobia. Ultimately this is about money. Who profits?
Operation Northwoods, the Joint Chiefs discussion of 1962 about starting a war with Cuba in order to justify invading it:
From page 5:
5. 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.
The goals and plan. Create a narrative wherein the US is defending itself from Cuba in order to move US and world public opinion so that they can invade Cuba.
Now on to some details!
From page 11:
3. A “Remember the Maine” incident could be arranged in several forms:
a. We could blow up a US ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba.
October 12, 2000 – The USS Cole Bombing blamed on Al Qaeda
4. We could develop a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington.
The events of “Charlie Wilson’s War”, in which the United States seeks to and succeeds in making the Soviet Union go broke fighting an extended war in Afghanistan against the mujaheddin includes using and training Osama bin Laden as an asset.
[4. cont.] The terror campaign could be pointed at Cuban refugees seeking haven in the United States. We could sink a boatload of Cubans enroute to Florida (real or simulated). 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.
[4 cont.] 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.
Crude Niger forgeries surface in Italian newspapers, spread fear of Iraqi nuclear program
Blackwater emails seem to indicate that they had something to do with the assassination of twice Pakistan prime minister Benazir Bhutto on December 27, 2007 and planned to pin it on an “affiliate of Al Qaeda.”
And, where there is actual activity on the part of the opponent, exaggerate it, add to it:
[from 5.] These efforts can be magnified and additional ones contrived for exposure. For example, advantage can be taken of the sensitivity of the Dominican Air Force to intrusions within their national air space. “Cuban” B-26 or C-46 type aircraft could make cane-burning raids at night. Soviet bloc incendiaries could be found.
[5 cont.] This could be coupled with “Cuban” messages to the Communist underground in the Dominican Republic and “Cuban” shipments of arms which would be found, or intercepted, on the beach.
Iranians blamed in Nigerian arms smuggling even as a year later…
…The Department of Homeland Security, who pools it’s intelligence from all of the other intelligence sources, recently attempted to draw the United States into yet another oil war, this time in Nigeria
7. Hijacking attempts against civil air and surface craft should appear to continue as harassing measures condoned by the government of Cuba.
So many ways to go with this one, I’ll just move it back toward the main point of this blog, the use of “behavioral modification” for political ends:
FBI told to blame Anthrax attacks on Al Qaeda (and Iraq, see other sources). It of course turned out to be (most likely) Bruce Ivins, a man sort of like the Unabomber and Frank Olson had a baby. He worked at Fort Detrick (as Olson did) on WMD issues, became deathly afraid there was going to be a bio-terror attack, so he created one. His letters are sort of a puzzle and that part more closely matches the Unabomber.
That’s the semi-official story. He did so, however, with the “help”, in my opinion, of some folks utilizing voice-to-skull and probably other psychological operations. That’s my opinion because I’ve had ample experience with someone trying to drive me to violence. (Again, this is because I am a witness to illegal human experimentation and other black op activities from 1989 and 1990 and perhaps later. They desperately want to keep those activities secret because it’s one of the ways that these people keep from getting prosecuted, having their goal of breaking the spine of the Federal government–except for Defense–through influencing, controlling, and intimidating Congress, hampered).
Need I note this again? A person in a very sensitive government position goes bonkers unnoticed and manages to send out letters laced with a deadly substance. Someone doesn’t mind the store when it’s getting robbed is in his best interests. Same story with Bradley Manning. Look at the details of the legal documents and how many people noted his seeming to come undone and yet no action was taken.
8. 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.
There you have it. Murdering American citizens and blaming it on Cuba. Really, once you’ve gone there, where is the stopping point? Why not drive six young gay men to suicide and make them have accidents (utilizing black ops, voice-to-skull, drugs, etc.) just to drive one witness to the same and keep your tools a secret? The Frey effect was tested in 1973! Why and how has it been kept secret this long? The Frey effect.
[8.] a. An aircraft at Elgin AFB would be painted and numbered as an exact duplicate for a civil registered aircraft belonging to a CIA proprietary organization…
Included so you can understand what we’re talking about. The CIA and DOD often work together on these kinds of things. That there are the occasional disagreements can be genuine or just for appearances. In any case, there is ample indication that both contain/contained people who put their personal profits ahead of American lives, the safety and security of the US, and do not care how many tax dollars they waste because it weakens the parts of the government who would likely want to stop these kinds of false-flag-for-profit activities. Additionally, you’ll note even today rabid anti-Cuba and anti-Muslim rhetoric coming (mostly ) from the Republican party. That they want perpetual war AND don’t want to pay for it means that the middle class is going to be burdened with it. Surely there are plenty of Democrats who know what I’m saying is true. Why then aren’t they utilizing any of this to deal with it? It’s a simple and effective way of getting the defense industry back on track with something more akin to reality instead of the enrichment of a few at the expense of blood and money for many.
Finally, to remind folks what tied all of the above together, the hysterically funny attempt to put the “army of genies” back into the bottle:
I’ve avoided using the old adage for obvious reasons, but if this isn’t the guilty dog barking, what is it?
(For the x-files again: the date of the third memorandum for the Obama administration’s Open Government Directive? December 8, 2009.)
Believe me, I hate defending the Democrats. But the Republicans just keep making it so easy with their radical rhetoric and calls for violence and a return to pre-civil rights eras (like the 13th Century).
