Summary of False Flag Operations and False Flag Terrorism.

"False flag terrorism" occurs when elements within a government stage a secret operation whereby government forces pretend to be a targeted enemy while attacking their own forces or people. The attack is then falsely blamed on the enemy in order to justify going to war against that enemy. Or as Wikipedia defines it:

False flag operations are covert operations conducted by governments, corporations, or other organizations, which are designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as if they are being carried out by other entities. The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is, flying the flag of a country other than one's own. False flag operations are not limited to war and counter-insurgency operations, and have been used in peace-time; for example, during Italy's strategy of tension.

The term comes from the old days of wooden ships, when one ship would hang the flag of its enemy before attacking another ship in its own navy. Because the enemy's flag was hung instead of the flag of the real country of the attacking ship, it was called a "false flag" attack.

There are many examples of false flag attacks throughout history. For example, it is widely known that the Nazis, in Operation Himmler, faked attacks on their own people and resources which they blamed on the Poles, to justify the invasion of Poland. And it has now been persuasively argued — as shown, for example, in this History Channel video — that Nazis set fire to their own parliament, the Reichstag, and blamed that fire on others. The Reichstag fire was the watershed event which justified Hitler's seizure of power and suspension of liberties.

And in the early 1950s, agents of an Israeli terrorist cell operating in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including U.S. diplomatic facilities, then left behind "evidence" implicating the Arabs as the culprits (one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to identify the bombers). Israel's Defense Minister was brought down by the scandal, along with the entire Israeli government. Click here for verification.

The Russian KGB apparently conducted a wave of bombings in Russia in order to justify war against Chechnya and put Vladimir Putin into power (see also this essay and this report). And the Turkish government has been caught bombing its own and blaming it on a rebel group to justify a crackdown on that group. Muslim governments also play this game. For example, the well-respected former Indonesian president claimed that their government had a role in the Bali bombings.

This sounds nuts, right? You've never heard of this "false flag terrorism," where a government attacks its own people then blames others in order to justify its goals, right? And you are skeptical of the statements discussed above? Please take a look at these historical quotes:

"If tyranny and oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy." - U.S. President James Madison

"Why of course the people don't want war ... But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship ... Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." - Hermann Goering, Nazi leader.

What about the U.S.?

Is it logical to assume that, even if other countries have carried out false flag operations (especially horrible regimes such as, say, the Nazis or Stalin), the U.S. has never done so? Well, as documented by the New York Times, Iranians working for the C.I.A. in the 1950's posed as Communists and staged bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its democratically-elected president (see also this essay).

And, as confirmed by a former Italian Prime Minister, an Italian judge, and the former head of Italian counterintelligence, NATO carried out terror bombings in Italy with the help of the Pentagon and CIA and blamed communists in order to rally people's support for their governments in Europe in their fight against communism. As one participant in this formerly-secret program stated: "You had to attack civilians, people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the state to ask for greater security."

Moreover, declassified U.S. Government documents show that in the 1960s, the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff signed off on a plan code-named Operation Northwoods to blow up American airplanes (using an elaborate plan involving the switching of airplanes), and also to commit terrorist acts on American soil, and then to blame it on the Cubans in order to justify an invasion of Cuba. The operation was not carried out only because the Kennedy administration refused to implement these Pentagon plans.

For lots more on the astonishing Operation Northwoods, see the ABC news report; the official declassified documents; and watch this interview with James Bamford, the former Washington Investigative Producer for ABC's World News Tonight with Peter Jennings. One quote from the Northwoods documents states: "A 'Remember the Maine' incident could be arranged: We could blow up a US ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba. Casualty lists in US newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation."

What about Al-Qaeda?

You might think Al-Qaeda is different. It is very powerful, organized, and out to get us, right? Consider this Los Angeles Times article, reviewing a BBC documentary entitled The Power of Nightmares, which shows that the threat from Al Qaeda has been vastly overblown (and see this article on who is behind the hype). And former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski testified to the Senate that the war on terror is "a mythical historical narrative."

And did you know that the FBI had penetrated the cell which carried out the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, but had – at the last minute – cancelled the plan to have its FBI infiltrator substitute fake powder for real explosives, against the infiltrator's strong wishes? See also this TV news report.

Have you heard that the CIA is alleged to have met with Bin Laden two months before 9/11? Did you know that years after 9/11 the FBI first stated that it did not have sufficient evidence to prosecute Bin Laden for 9/11? (See also this partial confirmation by the Washington Post) And did you see the statement in Newsweek by the CIA commander in charge of the capture that the U.S. let Bin Laden escape from Afghanistan?

Have you heard that the anthrax attacks – which were sent along with notes purportedly written by Islamic terrorists – used a weaponized anthrax strain from the top U.S. bioweapons facility? Indeed, top bioweapons experts have stated that the anthrax attack may have been a CIA test "gone wrong." For more on this, see this article by a former NSA and naval intelligence officer and this statement by a distinguished law professor and bioterror expert (and this one).

It is also interesting that the only Congress members mailed anthrax letters were key Democrats, and that the attacks occurred one week before passage of the freedom-curtailing PATRIOT Act, which seems to have scared them and the rest of Congress into passing that act without even reading it. And though it may be a coincidence, White House staff began taking the anti-anthrax medicine before the Anthrax attacks occurred.

Even General William Odom, former director of the National Security Agency, said "By any measure the US has long used terrorism. In ‘78-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism, yet in every version they produced, the lawyers said the US would be in violation" (the audio is here).

Why Does This Matter?

Please read what the following highly respected people are saying:

Former prominent Republican U.S. Congressman and CIA official Bob Barr stated that the U.S. is close to becoming a totalitarian society and that elements in government are using fear to try to bring this about.

Republican U.S. Congressman Ron Paul stated that the government "is determined to have martial law." He also said a contrived "Gulf of Tonkin-type incident may occur to gain popular support for an attack on Iran." Former National Security Adviser Brzezinski told the Senate that a terrorist act might be carried out in the U.S. and falsely blamed on Iran to justify yet another war.

The former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration, Paul Craig Roberts, who is called the "Father of Reaganomics" and is a former editor and columnist for the Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, and Scripps Howard News Service, has said:

"Ask yourself: Would a government that has lied us into two wars and is working to lie us into an attack on Iran shrink from staging 'terrorist' attacks in order to remove opposition to its agenda?

Retired 27-year CIA analyst Ray McGovern, who prepared and presented Presidential Daily Briefs and served as a high-level analyst for several presidents, stated that if there was another major attack in the U.S., it would lead to martial law. He went on to say:

"We have to be careful, if somebody does this kind of provocation – big violent explosions of some kind – we have to not take the word of the masters there in Washington that this was some terrorist event because it could well be a provocation allowing them, or seemingly to allow them to get what they want."

The former CIA analyst would not put it past the government to "play fast and loose" with terror alerts and warnings and even terrorist events in order to rally people behind the flag.

General Tommy Franks stated that if another terrorist attack occurs in the United States "the Constitution will likely be discarded in favor of a military form of government." Former UN Weapons Inspector Scott Ritter stated before the Iraq war started that there were no weapons of mass destruction. He is now saying that he would not rule out staged government terror by the U.S. government. And British Parliament Member George Galloway stated that "there is a very real danger" that the American government will stage a false flag terror attack in order to justify war against Iran and to gain complete control domestically.

The abundance of reliable information in this essay suggests that not only has the U.S. in the past conducted false flag operations, but there is a possibility that 9/11 involved some element of this deceit, and a future false flag operation cannot be ruled out. Let us spread this news to all who care so that we might build the critical mass necessary to stop these secret operations and work together for a more caring civil society.


Special Note: For a collection of reliable, verifiable information suggesting that 9/11 may have been a form of false flag operation, please see the 9/11 Information Center available at this link.

    Since the 9/11 attack is losing it's potency as a propaganda piece, we can expect another one soon. My eye is on the 2012 "Zion" Olympics in London. Maybe they'll have a whole new string of faces to plaster to the television, and maybe this time some of them won't show up living overseas, nowhere near the attack when it happens. They're probably going to have to find another scapegoat as well, since Al Qaeda is a U.S. ally now, per Libya and Syria's overthrow.

    Didn't really have the right answer for me. I do not believe that 9/11 was a false flag attack but the result of our arrogance, overconfidence, and complacency.

    However once it happened the government squeezed it for every drop it could get out of it. Letting Osama run free to be the face of terrorism to give Americans a focus for the war and an excuse for the things they had wanted to do for a long time before it happened.

    This video debunks most of the conspiracy theories, it is a bit long although I did find it entertaining.

    the Civil War (1860-1865) and due to the Russian intervention 1863 (1863) on the Union's side, those European plans were quietly abandoned. till 9-11 this is just a small list. This is an history of American false flag opps, just a few not the many many more which can be easily researched through FOIA.

    You may want to go to the 1:13 min mark first then ask yourself IF you want to know the truth after that and watch from the beginning IF your READY to wake up.

    I DO know of a way that "papers" can be strewn over the streets in the middle of a "towering inferno of fire?" or how a "burning" piece of metal can have a paper fall on top of it and NOT burn. You have to broaden your understanding of Physic's and energy.

    As a matter of fact they do want people to research and they have disinformation all over the place. I just know what I saw, a controlled demo (I've been in const over 20 years) and the fact it did turn to dust. Also studied about the lazer tec, I have one that has had some of the frequencies disabled.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/... This kinds dose refute the claim above so does hundreds of physics majors.
    A 32-story building burns for more than 24 hours and does not collapse. It does not collapse because buildings made of steel and concrete, despite what we are led to believe, do not typically fall to the ground because of fire, even a protracted fire as witnessed in Madrid. In fact before September 11th, 2001, no building had ever collapsed as a result of fire alone. In past events, high-rise buildings burned for as long as six days before the fires were extinguished and yet remained standing.

    Didn't need it, burning for 24 hours can cook almost anything. Funny all that jet fuel didn't seem to burn here either?

    "Look at the pictures above; at all the unburned grass and the green trees so close to the alleged impact point. The site more closely approaches a garbage land-fill! That's not the impact point of an airliner carrying approximately 6,000 gallons of Jet-A fuel! The 'crater' is approximately 70 feet in diameter. There is no evidence of any flying parts tearing down trees, as they scatter from any forward speed or explosion. No wings, No tail. No engines. No aircraft!"

    FBI Denies Mix-Up Of 9/11 Terrorists


    Posted June 11, 2003




    FBI Director Mueller acknowledged in 2002 there was no �legal proof to prove the identities of the hijackers.� Yet the bureau insists it correctly has identified them.
    Nearly 48 hours after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the names of the hijackers flashed across TV screens for the world to see. Based on intelligence information gained from interviews, witnesses, flight-manifest logs and passports found at some of the crash debris sites, the FBI claimed it correctly had identified all 18 hijackers. A short time later the number was amended to 19. A few days later the names were followed with photos of the men blamed for the terrorism that claimed nearly 3,000 lives in New York City, Washington and Pennsylvania. Incredibly fast intelligence work - some of the information coming from the National Ground Intelligence Center in Charlottesville, Va. - enabled investigators to tie the attack to Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda network.

    The story that the hijackers used box-cutters and plastic knives in the attack on the World Trade Center is a functional fictoid. In this case, the function was diversion. This fictoid serves to divert public attentions from the responsibility, and legal liability, of the government and airlines to prevent major weapons- such as guns, bombs, chemical sprays and hunting knives from being carried aboard airplanes. If such illegal devices had been smuggled aboard the planes, the liability could amount to billions of dollars. If, on the other hand, it could be disseminated that the hijackers had only used plastic knives, such as those provided by the airlines for meals, or box cutters, which were allowed on planes, neither the airlines, the screeners at the airport, or the FAA, which regulates the safety of airports, could be held legally responsible.

    Your still trying to compare this to planes crashed by mechanical or pilot error where someone at least tried to land. this plane was driven into the ground at top speed! We have no comparison on what that does to a plane, as the video I posted expert explains the plane collapsed like an accordian as it buried itself in the ground.

    I think all involved have given enough accurate evidences to show what has happened was in NO way an accident. To continue to believe the lie (which was so ignorantly told to all) is your right. However, those who understand the total fallibly of the "official story" and look to the actual evidences of what did/did not happen have come to an intelligent conclusion of what was more plausible.

    I still don't believe I know the truth. There are compelling arguments on both sides of the argument and when you are dealing with the clandestine world, who really knows? One consideration is that there are rarely 2 people who can keep a secret. The number of people involved in all of these operations is large and it is pretty unlikely that the secrets could be kept, if in fact, there were secrets. Another consideration is motivation. Take Iraq and A'stan. Whether you believe they were justified or not, if you assume it was all a charade, somebody would have to have benefited from it. How would Bush or Cheney or Clinton or Obama or anybody else have benefited? It was claimed to be a war for oil, but we made an incredible point of making sure Iraq kept all the oil. It could have been to establish our military supremacy, maybe even to test out new doctrine and weapons systems. Well, we may have learned something about the military, but we decimated the strength of the military and eroded the morale of the population back home. Was that the desired outcome? Who actually benefited and how? Without the war in Iraq, perhaps Obama wouldn't have been elected. I fully understand and embrace the possibility of a false flag attack, but I don't know if it is anymore than an interesting theory and I don't think there will ever be any more proof or conclusive judgment than their is regarding the Kennedy assassination.

    Anyone who fails to see the commission report as a cover up is lying to themselves.
    Anyone who fails to see that Bush not only knew in advance but played an active role is a fool.
    People don't want to believe their own govt is capable of such treachery and it's easier for them to sleep with the lie than wake up to the truth.

    There is more than enough evidence to convince any rational being that it was an inside job. How people rationalize ignoring that evidence is a mystery to me and a disservice to those who died on 9/11 and the wars that followed.

    If you think the official tale represents anything resembling the truth you either haven't looked at the evidence, you've been brainwashed by the media, you're incredibly naive, your father is also your uncle or you voted for Bush.

    The only time in history a black box wasn't recovered happened 4 times on the same day. What a coincidence, huh?
    The only time in history fire caused a steel structure to collapse happened 3 times on the same day in the same place in exactly the same manner.
    Wow, another coincidence!!.

    You can't be that gullible.

    Actually, flight 93 and 77 both black boxes were recovered. And never before was there a plane crash of the magnitude WTC buildings had. You 80 something stories crashing down, It would be a miracle for a black box to survive this crash.
    And you saying "the only time in history a black box wasn't recovered" is so wrong only a simple google search would prove this incorrect. Here are two Eurocopter A350BA and Boeing MD-11 both happened in 1999.
