The Ever-Growing List of ADMITTED False Flag Attacks

False Flag -- A horrific, staged event, blamed on a political enemy and used as a pretext to start a war or enact draconian laws in the name of national security.

Editor's note:

This is an impressive list of false flags, although it is certainly not exhaustive. For example, it does not include Sandy Hook, which I believe was an attempt by the Obama Administration to push gun control. Nor does it include the Boston Marathon bombing, for which there is convincing evidence of involvement by U.S. Military contractors.

I have reproduced this article here, because no one knows when any website may disappear from existence in a blink. However, serious students should visit the original source, as this article is heavily hyperlinked to the sources for every claimed false flag it lists. Usually I don't mind reproducing the hyperlinks here, but in this case they were too numerous and for the sake of time have been omitted.

The Ever-Growing List of ADMITTED False Flag Attacks

Presidents, Prime Ministers, Congressmen, Generals, Spooks, Soldiers and Police ADMIT to False Flag Terror

In the following instances, officials in the government which carried out the attack (or seriously proposed an attack) admit to it, either orally, in writing, or through photographs or videos:


  1. Japanese troops set off a small explosion on a train track in 1931, and falsely blamed it on China in order to justify an invasion of Manchuria. This is known as the “Mukden Incident” or the “Manchurian Incident”. The Tokyo International Military Tribunal found: “Several of the participators in the plan, including Hashimoto [a high-ranking Japanese army officer], have on various occasions admitted their part in the plot and have stated that the object of the ‘Incident’ was to afford an excuse for the occupation of Manchuria by the Kwantung Army ….” And see this, this and this.
  2. A major with the Nazi SS admitted at the Nuremberg trials that – under orders from the chief of the Gestapo – he and some other Nazi operatives faked attacks on their own people and resources which they blamed on the Poles, to justify the invasion of Poland.
  3. The minutes of the high command of the Italian government – subsequently approved by Mussolini himself – admitted that violence on the Greek-Albanian border was carried out by Italians and falsely blamed on the Greeks, as an excuse for Italy’s 1940 invasion of Greece.
  4. Nazi general Franz Halder also testified at the Nuremberg trials that Nazi leader Hermann Goering admitted to setting fire to the German parliament building in 1933, and then falsely blaming the communists for the arson.
  5. Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev admitted in writing that the Soviet Union’s Red Army shelled the Russian village of Mainila in 1939 – while blaming the attack on Finland – as a basis for launching the “Winter War” against Finland. Russian president Boris Yeltsin agreed that Russia had been the aggressor in the Winter War.
  6. The Russian Parliament, current Russian president Putin and former Soviet leader Gorbachev all admit that Soviet leader Joseph Stalin ordered his secret police to execute 22,000 Polish army officers and civilians in 1940, and then falsely blamed it on the Nazis.
  7. The British government admits that – between 1946 and 1948 – it bombed 5 ships carrying Jews attempting to flee the Holocaust to seek safety in Palestine, set up a fake group called “Defenders of Arab Palestine”, and then had the psuedo-group falsely claim responsibility for the bombings (and see this, this and this).
  8. Israel admits that in 1954, 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, and several of the Israelis later confessed) (and see this and this).

    The U.S. Army does not believe this is an isolated incident. For example, the U.S. Army’s School of Advanced Military Studies said of Mossad (Israel’s intelligence service):

    “Ruthless and cunning. Has capability to target U.S. forces and make it look like a Palestinian/Arab act.”

  9. The CIA admits that it hired Iranians in the 1950′s to pose as Communists and stage bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its democratically-elected prime minister.
  10. The Turkish Prime Minister admitted that the Turkish government carried out the 1955 bombing on a Turkish consulate in Greece – also damaging the nearby birthplace of the founder of modern Turkey – and blamed it on Greece, for the purpose of inciting and justifying anti-Greek violence.
  11. The British Prime Minister admitted to his defense secretary that he and American president Dwight Eisenhower approved a plan in 1957 to carry out attacks in Syria and blame it on the Syrian government as a way to effect regime change.
  12. The former Italian Prime Minister, an Italian judge, and the former head of Italian counterintelligence admit that NATO, with the help of the Pentagon and CIA, carried out terror bombings in Italy and other European countries in the 1950s through the 1980s and blamed the 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” … so that “a state of emergency could be declared, so people would willingly trade part of their freedom for the security” (and see this) (Italy and other European countries subject to the terror campaign had joined NATO before the bombings occurred). And watch this BBC special. They also allegedly carried out terror attacks in France, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, the UK, and other countries.

    The CIA also stressed to the head of the Italian program that Italy needed to use the program to control internal uprisings.

    False flag attacks carried out pursuant to this program include – by way of example only:

    • The murder of the Turkish Prime Minister (1960)
    • Bombings in Portugal (1966)
    • The Piazza Fontana massacre in Italy (1969)
    • Terror attacks in Turkey (1971)
    • The Peteano bombing in Italy (1972)
    • Shootings in Brescia, Italy and a bombing on an Italian train (1974)
    • Shootings in Istanbul, Turkey (1977)
    • The Atocha massacre in Madrid, Spain (1977)
    • The abduction and murder of the Italian Prime Minister (1978) (and see this)
    • The bombing of the Bologna railway station in Italy (1980)
    • Shooting and killing 28 shoppers in Brabant county, Belgium (1985)
  13. In 1960, American Senator George Smathers suggested that the U.S. launch “a false attack made on Guantanamo Bay which would give us the excuse of actually fomenting a fight which would then give us the excuse to go in and [overthrow Castro]”.
  14. Official State Department documents show that, in 1961, the head of the Joint Chiefs and other high-level officials discussed blowing up a consulate in the Dominican Republic in order to justify an invasion of that country. The plans were not carried out, but they were all discussed as serious proposals.
  15. As admitted by the U.S. government, recently declassified documents show that in 1962, the American Joint Chiefs of Staff signed off on a plan 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. See the following ABC news report; the official documents; and watch this interview with the former Washington Investigative Producer for ABC’s World News Tonight with Peter Jennings.
  16. In 1963, the U.S. Department of Defense wrote a paper promoting attacks on nations within the Organization of American States – such as Trinidad-Tobago or Jamaica – and then falsely blaming them on Cuba.
  17. The U.S. Department of Defense also suggested covertly paying a person in the Castro government to attack the United States: “The only area remaining for consideration then would be to bribe one of Castro’s subordinate commanders to initiate an attack on Guantanamo.”
  18. A U.S. Congressional committee admitted that – as part of its “Cointelpro” campaign – the FBI had used many provocateurs in the 1950s through 1970s to carry out violent acts and falsely blame them on political activists.
  19. A top Turkish general admitted that Turkish forces burned down a mosque on Cyprus in the 1970s and blamed it on their enemy. He explained: “In Special War, certain acts of sabotage are staged and blamed on the enemy to increase public resistance. We did this on Cyprus; we even burnt down a mosque.” In response to the surprised correspondent’s incredulous look the general said, “I am giving an example”.
  20. A declassified 1973 CIA document reveals a program to train foreign police and troops on how to make booby traps, pretending that they were training them on how to investigate terrorist acts:

    The Agency maintains liaison in varying degrees with foreign police/security organizations through its field stations ….
    [CIA provides training sessions as follows:]

    1. Providing trainees with basic knowledge in the uses of commercial and military demolitions and incendiaries as they may be applied in terrorism and industrial sabotage operations.
    2. Introducing the trainees to commercially available materials and home laboratory techniques, likely to he used in the manufacture of explosives and incendiaries by terrorists or saboteurs.
    3. Familiarizing the trainees with the concept of target analysis and operational planning that a saboteur or terrorist must employ.
    4. Introducing the trainees to booby trapping devices and techniques giving practical experience with both manufactured and improvised devices through actual fabrication.

    ***
    The program provides the trainees with ample opportunity to develop basic familiarity and use proficiently through handling, preparing and applying the various explosive charges, incendiary agents, terrorist devices and sabotage techniques.

  21. The German government admitted (and see this) that, in 1978, the German secret service detonated a bomb in the outer wall of a prison and planted “escape tools” on a prisoner – a member of the Red Army Faction – which the secret service wished to frame the bombing on.
  22. A Mossad agent admits that, in 1984, Mossad planted a radio transmitter in Gaddaffi’s compound in Tripoli, Libya which broadcast fake terrorist transmissions recorded by Mossad, in order to frame Gaddaffi as a terrorist supporter. Ronald Reagan bombed Libya immediately thereafter.
  23. The South African Truth and Reconciliation Council found that, in 1989, the Civil Cooperation Bureau (a covert branch of the South African Defense Force) approached an explosives expert and asked him “to participate in an operation aimed at discrediting the ANC [the African National Congress] by bombing the police vehicle of the investigating officer into the murder incident”, thus framing the ANC for the bombing.
  24. An Algerian diplomat and several officers in the Algerian army admit that, in the 1990s, the Algerian army frequently massacred Algerian civilians and then blamed Islamic militants for the killings (and see this video; and Agence France-Presse, 9/27/2002, French Court Dismisses Algerian Defamation Suit Against Author).
  25. In 1993, a bomb in Northern Ireland killed 9 civilians. Official documents from the Royal Ulster Constabulary (i.e. the British government) show that the mastermind of the bombing was a British agent, and that the bombing was designed to inflame sectarian tensions. And see this and this.
  26. The United States Army’s 1994 publication Special Forces Foreign Internal Defense Tactics Techniques and Procedures for Special Forces – updated in 2004 – recommends employing terrorists and using false flag operations to destabilize leftist regimes in Latin America. False flag terrorist attacks were carried out in Latin America and other regions as part of the CIA’s “Dirty Wars“. And see this.
  27. Similarly, a CIA “psychological operations” manual prepared by a CIA contractor for the Nicaraguan Contra rebels noted the value of assassinating someone on your own side to create a “martyr” for the cause. The manual was authenticated by the U.S. government. The manual received so much publicity from Associated Press, Washington Post and other news coverage that – during the 1984 presidential debate – President Reagan was confronted with the following question on national television:

    At this moment, we are confronted with the extraordinary story of a CIA guerrilla manual for the anti-Sandinista contras whom we are backing, which advocates not only assassinations of Sandinistas but the hiring of criminals to assassinate the guerrillas we are supporting in order to create martyrs.

  28. A Rwandan government inquiry admitted that the 1994 shootdown and murder of the Rwandan president, who was from the Hutu tribe – a murder blamed by the Hutus on the rival Tutsi tribe, and which led to the massacre of more than 800,000 Tutsis by Hutus – was committed by Hutu soldiers and falsely blamed on the Tutis.
  29. An Indonesian government fact-finding team investigated violent riots which occurred in 1998, and determined that “elements of the military had been involved in the riots, some of which were deliberately provoked”.
  30. Senior Russian Senior military and intelligence officers admit that the KGB blew up Russian apartment buildings in 1999 and falsely blamed it on Chechens, in order to justify an invasion of Chechnya (and see this report and this discussion).
  31. As reported by the New York Times, BBC and Associated Press, Macedonian officials admit that in 2001, the government murdered 7 innocent immigrants in cold blood and pretended that they were Al Qaeda soldiers attempting to assassinate Macedonian police, in order to join the “war on terror”. luring foreign migrants into the country, executing them in a staged gun battle, and then claiming they were a unit backed by Al Qaeda intent on attacking Western embassies”. Macedonian authorities had lured the immigrants into the country, and then – after killing them – posed the victims with planted evidence – “bags of uniforms and semiautomatic weapons at their side” – to show Western diplomats.
  32. At the July 2001 G8 Summit in Genoa, Italy, black-clad thugs were videotaped getting out of police cars, and were seen by an Italian MP carrying “iron bars inside the police station”. Subsequently, senior police officials in Genoa subsequently admitted that police planted two Molotov cocktails and faked the stabbing of a police officer at the G8 Summit, in order to justify a violent crackdown against protesters.
  33. The U.S. falsely blamed Iraq for playing a role in the 9/11 attacks – as shown by a memo from the defense secretary – as one of the main justifications for launching the Iraq war.

    Even after the 9/11 Commission admitted that there was no connection, Dick Cheney said that the evidence is “overwhelming” that al Qaeda had a relationship with Saddam Hussein’s regime, that Cheney “probably” had information unavailable to the Commission, and that the media was not ‘doing their homework’ in reporting such ties. Top U.S. government officials now admit that the Iraq war was really launched for oil … not 9/11 or weapons of mass destruction.

    Despite previous “lone wolf” claims, many U.S. government officials now say that 9/11 was state-sponsored terror; but Iraq was not the state which backed the hijackers. (Many U.S. officials have alleged that 9/11 was a false flag operation by rogue elements of the U.S. government; but such a claim is beyond the scope of this discussion. The key point is that the U.S. falsely blamed it on Iraq, when it knew Iraq had nothing to do with it.).

    (Additionally, the same judge who has shielded the Saudis for any liability for funding 9/11 has awarded a default judgment against Iran for $10.5 billion for carrying out 9/11 … even though no one seriously believes that Iran had any part in 9/11.)
  34. Although the FBI now admits that the 2001 anthrax attacks were carried out by one or more U.S. government scientists, a senior FBI official says that the FBI was actually told to blame the Anthrax attacks on Al Qaeda by White House officials (remember what the anthrax letters looked like). Government officials also confirm that the white House tried to link the anthrax to Iraq as a justification for regime change in that country. And see this.
  35. According to the Washington Post, Indonesian police admit that the Indonesian military killed American teachers in Papua in 2002 and blamed the murders on a Papuan separatist group in order to get that group listed as a terrorist organization.
  36. The well-respected former Indonesian president also admits that the government probably had a role in the Bali bombings.
  37. Police outside of a 2003 European Union summit in Greece were filmed planting Molotov cocktails on a peaceful protester.
  38. In 2003, the U.S. Secretary of Defense admitted that interrogators were authorized to use the following method: “False Flag: Convincing the detainee that individuals from a country other than the United States are interrogating him.” While not a traditional false flag attack, this deception could lead to former detainees attacking the country falsely blamed for the interrogation.
  39. Former Department of Justice lawyer John Yoo suggested in 2005 that the US should go on the offensive against al-Qaeda, having “our intelligence agencies create a false terrorist organization. It could have its own websites, recruitment centers, training camps, and fundraising operations. It could launch fake terrorist operations and claim credit for real terrorist strikes, helping to sow confusion within al-Qaeda’s ranks, causing operatives to doubt others’ identities and to question the validity of communications.”
  40. Similarly, in 2005, Professor John Arquilla of the Naval Postgraduate School – a renowned US defense analyst credited with developing the concept of ‘netwar’ – called for western intelligence services to create new “pseudo gang” terrorist groups, as a way of undermining “real” terror networks. According to Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Seymour Hersh, Arquilla’s ‘pseudo-gang’ strategy was, Hersh reported, already being implemented by the Pentagon:

    “Under Rumsfeld’s new approach, I was told, US military operatives would be permitted to pose abroad as corrupt foreign businessmen seeking to buy contraband items that could be used in nuclear-weapons systems. In some cases, according to the Pentagon advisers, local citizens could be recruited and asked to join up with guerrillas or terrorists…

    The new rules will enable the Special Forces community to set up what it calls ‘action teams’ in the target countries overseas which can be used to find and eliminate terrorist organizations. ‘Do you remember the right-wing execution squads in El Salvador?’ the former high-level intelligence official asked me, referring to the military-led gangs that committed atrocities in the early nineteen-eighties. ‘We founded them and we financed them,’ he said. ‘The objective now is to recruit locals in any area we want. And we aren’t going to tell Congress about it.’ A former military officer, who has knowledge of the Pentagon’s commando capabilities, said, ‘We’re going to be riding with the bad boys.’”

  41. United Press International reported in June 2005:

    U.S. intelligence officers are reporting that some of the insurgents in Iraq are using recent-model Beretta 92 pistols, but the pistols seem to have had their serial numbers erased. The numbers do not appear to have been physically removed; the pistols seem to have come off a production line without any serial numbers. Analysts suggest the lack of serial numbers indicates that the weapons were intended for intelligence operations or terrorist cells with substantial government backing. Analysts speculate that these guns are probably from either Mossad or the CIA. Analysts speculate that agent provocateurs may be using the untraceable weapons even as U.S. authorities use insurgent attacks against civilians as evidence of the illegitimacy of the resistance.

  42. In 2005, British soldiers dressed as Arabs were caught by Iraqi police after a shootout against the police. The soldiers apparently possessed explosives, and were accused of attempting to set off bombs. While none of the soldiers admitted that they were carrying out attacks, British soldiers and a column of British tanks stormed the jail they were held in, broke down a wall of the jail, and busted them out. The extreme measures used to free the soldiers – rather than have them face questions and potentially stand trial – could be considered an admission.
  43. Undercover Israeli soldiers admitted in 2005 to throwing stones at other Israeli soldiers so they could blame it on Palestinians, as an excuse to crack down on peaceful protests by the Palestinians.
  44. Quebec police admitted that, in 2007, thugs carrying rocks to a peaceful protest were actually undercover Quebec police officers (and see this).
  45. A 2008 US Army special operations field manual recommends that the U.S. military use surrogate non-state groups such as “paramilitary forces, individuals, businesses, foreign political organizations, resistant or insurgent organizations, expatriates, transnational terrorism adversaries, disillusioned transnational terrorism members, black marketers, and other social or political ‘undesirables.’” The manual specifically acknowledged that U.S. special operations can involve both counterterrorism and “Terrorism” (as well as “transnational criminal activities, including narco-trafficking, illicit arms-dealing, and illegal financial transactions.”)
  46. The former Italian Prime Minister, President, and head of Secret Services (Francesco Cossiga) advised the 2008 minister in charge of the police, on how to deal with protests from teachers and students:

    He should do what I did when I was Minister of the Interior … infiltrate the movement with agents provocateurs inclined to do anything …. And after that, with the strength of the gained population consent, … beat them for blood and beat for blood also those teachers that incite them. Especially the teachers. Not the elderly, of course, but the girl teachers yes.

  47. An undercover officer admitted that he infiltrated environmental, leftwing and anti-fascist groups in 22 countries. Germany’s federal police chief admitted that – while the undercover officer worked for the German police – he acted illegally during a G8 protest in Germany in 2007 and committed arson by setting fire during a subsequent demonstration in Berlin. The undercover officer spent many years living with violent “Black Bloc” anarchists.
  48. Denver police admitted that uniformed officers deployed in 2008 to an area where alleged “anarchists” had planned to wreak havoc outside the Democratic National Convention ended up getting into a melee with two undercover policemen. The uniformed officers didn’t know the undercover officers were cops.
  49. At the G20 protests in London in 2009, a British member of parliament saw plain clothes police officers attempting to incite the crowd to violence.
  50. The oversight agency for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police admitted that – at the G20 protests in Toronto in 2010 – undercover police officers were arrested with a group of protesters. Videos and photos (see this and this, for example) show that violent protesters wore very similar boots and other gear as the police, and carried police batons. The Globe and Mail reports that the undercover officers planned the targets for violent attack, and the police failed to stop the attacks.
  51. Egyptian politicians admitted (and see this) that government employees looted priceless museum artifacts 2011 to try to discredit the protesters.
  52. Austin police admit that 3 officers infiltrated the Occupy protests in that city. Prosecutors admit that one of the undercover officers purchased and constructed illegal “lock boxes” which ended up getting many protesters arrested.
  53. In 2011, a Colombian colonel admitted that he and his soldiers had lured 57 innocent civilians and killed them – after dressing many of them in uniforms – as part of a scheme to claim that Columbia was eradicating left-wing terrorists. And see this.
  54. Rioters who discredited the peaceful protests against the swearing in of the Mexican president in 2012 admitted that they were paid 300 pesos each to destroy everything in their path. According to Wikipedia, photos also show the vandals waiting in groups behind police lines prior to the violence.
  55. A Colombian army colonel has admitted that his unit murdered 57 civilians, then dressed them in uniforms and claimed they were rebels killed in combat.
  56. On November 20, 2014, Mexican agent provocateurs were transported by army vehicles to participate in the 2014 Iguala mass kidnapping protests, as was shown by videos and pictures distributed via social networks.
  57. The highly-respected writer for the Telegraph Ambrose Evans-Pritchard says that the head of Saudi intelligence – Prince Bandar – recently admitted that the Saudi government controls “Chechen” terrorists.
  58. Two members of the Turkish parliament, high-level American sources and others admitted that the Turkish government – a NATO country – carried out the chemical weapons attacks in Syria and falsely blamed them on the Syrian government; and high-ranking Turkish government admitted on tape plans to carry out attacks and blame it on the Syrian government.
  59. The Ukrainian security chief admits that the sniper attacks which started the Ukrainian coup were carried out in order to frame others. Ukrainian officials admit that the Ukrainian snipers fired on both sides, to create maximum chaos.
  60. Burmese government officials admitted that Burma (renamed Myanmar) used false flag attacks against Muslim and Buddhist groups within the country to stir up hatred between the two groups, to prevent democracy from spreading.
  61. Israeli police were again filmed in 2015 dressing up as Arabs and throwing stones, then turning over Palestinian protesters to Israeli soldiers.
  62. Britain’s spy agency has admitted (and see this) that it carries out “digital false flag” attacks on targets, framing people by writing offensive or unlawful material … and blaming it on the target.
  63. The CIA has admitted that it uses viruses and malware from Russia and other countries to carry out cyberattacks and blame other countries.
  64. U.S. soldiers have admitted that if they kill innocent Iraqis and Afghanis, they then “drop” automatic weapons near their body so they can pretend they were militants.
  65. Similarly, police frame innocent people for crimes they didn’t commit. The practice is so well-known that the New York Times noted in 1981:

    In police jargon, a throwdown is a weapon planted on a victim.


    Newsweek reported in 1999:

    Perez, himself a former [Los Angeles Police Department] cop, was caught stealing eight pounds of cocaine from police evidence lockers. After pleading guilty in September, he bargained for a lighter sentence by telling an appalling story of attempted murder and a “throwdown”–police slang for a weapon planted by cops to make a shooting legally justifiable. Perez said he and his partner, Officer Nino Durden, shot an unarmed 18th Street Gang member named Javier Ovando, then planted a semiautomatic rifle on the unconscious suspect and claimed that Ovando had tried to shoot them during a stakeout.


    Wikipedia notes:

    As part of his plea bargain, Pérez implicated scores of officers from the Rampart Division’s anti-gang unit, describing routinely beating gang members, planting evidence on suspects, falsifying reports and covering up unprovoked shootings.


    (As a side note – and while not technically false flag attacks – police have been busted framing innocent people in many other ways, as well.)
  66. A former U.S. intelligence officer recently alleged:

    Most terrorists are false flag terrorists or are created by our own security services.

  67. The head and special agent in charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles office said that most terror attacks are committed by the CIA and FBI as false flags. Similarly, the director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan – Lt. General William Odom said:

    By any measure the US has long used terrorism. In ‘78-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the US would be in violation.


    (audio here).
  68. The Director of Analytics at the interagency Global Engagement Center housed at the U.S. Department of State, also an adjunct professor at George Mason University, where he teaches the graduate course National Security Challenges in the Department of Information Sciences and Technology, a former branch chief in the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center, and an intelligence advisor to the Secretary of Homeland Security (J.D. Maddox) notes:

    Provocation is one of the most basic, but confounding, aspects of warfare. Despite its sometimes obvious use, it has succeeded consistently against audiences around the world, for millennia, to compel war. A well-constructed provocation narrative mutes even the most vocal opposition.
    ***
    The culmination of a strategic provocation operation invariably reflects a narrative of victimhood: we are the
    victims of the enemy’s unforgivable atrocities.
    ***
    In the case of strategic provocation the deaths of an aggressor’s own personnel are a core tactic of the provocation.
    ***
    The persistent use of strategic provocation over centuries – and its apparent importance to war planners – begs the question of its likely use by the US and other states in the near term.

  69. Leaders throughout history have acknowledged the “benefits” of of false flags to justify their political agenda:

    “Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death”.
    – Adolph Hitler

    “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.

    “The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. [The public] will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened”.
    – Josef Stalin


Postscript: The media plays along as well. For example, in 2012, NBC News’ chief foreign correspondent, Richard Engel, was kidnapped in Syria. NBC News said that Engel and his reporting team had been abducted by forces affiliated with the Syrian government. He reported that they only escaped when some anti-Syrian government rebels killed some of the pro-government kidnappers.

However, NBC subsequently admitted that this was false. It turns out that they were really kidnapped by people associated with the U.S. backed rebels fighting the Syrian government … who wore the clothes of, faked the accent of, scrawled the slogans of, and otherwise falsely impersonated the mannerisms of people associated with the Syrian government. In reality, the group that kidnapped Engel and his crew were affiliated with the U.S.-supported Free Syrian Army, and NBC should have known that it was blaming the wrong party. See the New York Times and the Nation’s reporting.

Of course, sometimes atrocities or warmongering are falsely blamed on the enemy as a justification for war … when no such event ever occurred. This is sort of like false flag terror … without the terror.

For example:


  • The NSA admits that it lied about what really happened in the Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964 … manipulating data to make it look like North Vietnamese boats fired on a U.S. ship so as to create a false justification for the Vietnam war
  • One of the central lies used to justify the 1991 Gulf War against Iraq after Iraq invaded Kuwait was the false statement by a young Kuwaiti girl that Iraqis murdered Kuwaiti babies in hospitals. Her statement was arranged by a Congressman who knew that she was actually the daughter of the Kuwaiti Ambassador to the U.S. – who was desperately trying to lobby the U.S. to enter the war – but the Congressman hid that fact from the public and from Congress
  • Another central lie used to justify the Gulf War was the statement that a quarter of a million Iraqi troops were massed on the border with Saudi Arabia (see also this article)
  • Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Ron Suskind reported that the White House ordered the CIA to forge and backdate a document falsely linking Iraq with Muslim terrorists and 9/11 … and that the CIA complied with those instructions and in fact created the forgery, which was then used to justify war against Iraq. And see this and this
  • Time magazine points out that the claim by President Bush that Iraq was attempting to buy “yellow cake” Uranium from Niger:

    had been checked out — and debunked — by U.S. intelligence a year before the President repeated it.

  • Everyone knew that Iraq didn’t have weapons of mass destruction. More
  • The entire torture program was geared towards obtaining false confessions linking Iraq and 9/11
  • CIA agents and documents admit that the agency gave Iran plans for building nuclear weapons … so it could frame Iran for trying to build the bomb
  • The “humanitarian” wars in Syria, Libya and Yugoslavia were all justified by exaggerated reports that the leaders of those countries were committing atrocities against their people. And see this

Re: The Ever-Growing List of ADMITTED False Flag Attacks

This thread has the possibility of becoming a massive collection of information, just by adding information on these false flag attacks.
Maybe the most interesting in this collection of false flag attacks; are the terror attacks in Europe by NATO. This is usually tagged under the name “operation Gladio”; that was its name in Italy, some of the other names (in other countries): Absalon - Denmark, ROC - Norway and SDRA8 – Belgium.

12. The former Italian Prime Minister, an Italian judge, and the former head of Italian counterintelligence admit that NATO, with the help of the Pentagon and CIA, carried out terror bombings in Italy and other European countries in the 1950s through the 1980s and blamed the 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” … so that “a state of emergency could be declared, so people would willingly trade part of their freedom for the security” (and see this) (Italy and other European countries subject to the terror campaign had joined NATO before the bombings occurred). And watch this BBC special. They also allegedly carried out terror attacks in France, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, the UK, and other countries.

The CIA also stressed to the head of the Italian program that Italy needed to use the program to control internal uprisings.

False flag attacks carried out pursuant to this program include – by way of example only:

  • The murder of the Turkish Prime Minister (1960)
  • Bombings in Portugal (1966)
  • The Piazza Fontana massacre in Italy (1969)
  • Terror attacks in Turkey (1971)
  • The Peteano bombing in Italy (1972)
  • Shootings in Brescia, Italy and a bombing on an Italian train (1974)
  • Shootings in Istanbul, Turkey (1977)
  • The Atocha massacre in Madrid, Spain (1977)
  • The abduction and murder of the Italian Prime Minister (1978) (and see this)
  • The bombing of the Bologna railway station in Italy (1980)
  • Shooting and killing 28 shoppers in Brabant county, Belgium (1985)

The problem here is that I have found some interesting information, but not the whole story.
The book by Daniele Ganser is the most reported in this context, but it is severely flawed as it tries to convince us that these false flag attacks were done in a fight against Communism. According to Ganser operation Gladio was dissolved in 1990 (at the end of the cold war).
Any fool can see that false flag attacks have continued since 1990. In reality NATO, Warschaupact, and intelligence agencies worldwide were working together in their fight against humanity. The “cold war” was a complete lie from start to finish.
I put a link to his book here, as I haven’t found something better. Daniele Ganser “NATO’s secret armies: Operation Gladio and Terrorism in Western Europe” (2005): http://sandiego.indymedia.org/media/2006/10/119640.pdf

Here’s a summary of the most important history facts in the Ganser book; this also includes several terrorist attacks in Africa:
http://www.globalresearch.ca/secret-war ... es/5303061
If I understand correctly, the most important revelation about Gladio, which got this a little in the open, is that in 1990 in Italy Judge Felice Casson discovered documents on Operation Gladio. Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti then confirmed the secret army within the state in front of parliament. Andreotti told that the secret stay-behind armies are spread across Western Europe.
Subsequently in various countries the secret NATO army was confirmed.
That this is broader than just NATO is clear because the secret armies “with indirect links to NATO” were also present in 4 “neutral countries”: Sweden, Finland, Austria and Switzerland.
The secret armies were controlled by a central coordination point (ACC, CPC or SHAPE) for the terrorist attacks:
Presidents, Interior Ministers and Defence Ministers, were involved in the conspiracy, while the 'Allied Clandestine Committee' (ACC), sometimes also euphemistically called the 'Allied Co-ordination Committee' and the 'Clandestine Planning Committee' (CPC), less conspicuously at times also called 'Coordination and Planning Committee' of NATO's Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE), coordinated the networks on the international level. The last confirmed secret meeting of ACC with representatives of European secret services took place on October 24, 1990 in Brussels.

Wikipedia has some information on Gladio: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Gladio

There has got to be a better source on Gladio than Ganser and (once again) CFR-member Steve Pieczenik that has spread misinformation on the murder of the Italian Prime Minister Aldo Moro in 1978.

Another name mentioned in this context is that of Sibel Edmonds that started working for the FBI in September 2001 as a translator, and wants us to believe that she was fired in March 2002 by the FBI because she turned whistleblower.
Edmonds claims that the FBI started a new operation in 1997 under the codename “Gladio B”.
Edmonds has published an autobiographical book in 2012 that’s not openly viewable (which could be a good sign), but I don’t think we can expect much from her…
The most interesting information that I found from Edmonds is an interview with James Corbett. For me this is interesting because it involves Turkey, England and my home country the Netherlands.
Edmonds was contacted by the attorney of the Turkish Kurd Baybasin, Adele van der Plas. Baybasin was sentenced to life in prison on 30 July 2002; when member of the Raad van State, Piet Hein Donner, was selected Minister of Justice by (then) Queen Beatrix on 22 July 2002. Donner was Minister almost continuously until December 2011, when he was selected as Vice-President of the Raad van State (comparable to Queen Elizabeth’s Privy Council).

Edmonds states that Baybasin was involved in drugs trafficking connected to NATO in Turkey, Britain and the Netherlands. She also stresses the importance of Cypriot banks in laundering dope money from Turkey.
Edmonds describes the case of NATO general Willem Matser that was in charge of the NATO-base in Romania. So NATO was also active in Romania?!?
Matser was involved in cocaine trafficking; a multimillion business. Suddenly he was arrested by the Dutch police and charged with money laundering of $200 million. After he got sentenced, he was already released about half a year later.
Corbett added that the Cypriot banks are important because they have a Greek and a Turkish side, and are favoured by the Russian mafia and oligarchs: https://www.corbettreport.com/gladio-b- ... ing-money/

There have been posts about Gladio in this forum before. I just decided to put this section here so it will hopefully attract all the future False Flag posts. Someday I may get around to moving others into this section, such as your posts on 9/11. I try to not do too much of that, since I know other websites link to articles here. But overall, I think more people will find those posts if they're in a false-flag section.

I’ve reposted part of this post on “Propaganda Due (P2)” here: viewtopic.php?f=31&t=1132

Keywords: “Paul L. Williams “Operation Gladio –Unholy Alliance between Vatican, CIA, Mafia” (2014), 1967, Italian Judge Emilio Alessandrini Bilderberg Group behind massacres in Italy, killed in 1979, 2013 Ferdinando Imposimato, Ordine Nuovo, Gladiator Vincenzo Vinciguerra, women children innocent people


There is official information that confirms that “covert operations” (which I call false flag attacks) have been part of the policy of the US government since at least 15 March 1954, with the approval of NSC 5412.
NSC 5412 described covert operations as:
"...all activities conducted pursuant to this directive which are so planned and executed that any U.S. Government responsibility for them is not evident to unauthorized persons and that if uncovered the U.S. Government can plausibly disclaim any responsibility for them.

Specifically, such operations shall include any covert activities related to:
propaganda, political action; economic warfare; preventive direct action, including sabotage, anti-sabotage, demolition; escape and evasion and evacuation measures;
subversion against hostile states or groups including assistance to underground resistance movements, guerrillas and refugee liberation groups;
support of indigenous and anti-communist elements in threatened countries of the free world; deceptive plans and operations;
and all activities compatible with this directive necessary to accomplish the foregoing.

Such operations shall not include: armed conflict by recognized military forces, espionage and counterespionage, nor cover and deception for military operations
".

In 1970 NSC 5412 was replaced by NSC 40 under which covert activities continued to take place.
The “secret” group that coordinated the false flag attacks has been known by a variety of names: in 1954 it was named Special Group; 1964 - 303 Committee; 1970 - 40 Committee; 1976 - Operations Advisory Group; 1977 - NSC Special Coordination Committee; the Reagan administration called it National Security Planning Group; 2002/2003 - Office of Special Plans.

In 1954, the Special Group was a subcommittee of the National Security Council and consisted of Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, and the President respectively
In 1964, National Security Advisor McGeorge Bundy became Chairman for the 303 Committee.
In 1970, the 40 Committee played a major role in preventing Salvador Allende from taking office in Chile, when Rockefeller agent Henry Kissinger chaired it.
In 1976, the 40 Committee consisted of the President's Assistant for National Security Affairs, the Secretaries of State and Defense, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Director of Central Intelligence.
Under Reagan, the National Security Planning Group included the Vice-President, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of State, the Assistant for National Security Affairs, and the Director of the CIA.

The Office of Special Plans that was installed by the Bush administration coordinates the Global war “on” terror and customary cooperation with NSA, Mossad and other intelligence agencies across the globe: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oversig ... cial_Group

Al Qaeda, USS Cole, Anthrax

Postby Firestarter » Wed Apr 19, 2017 4:46 pm

I have some information from another thread that is also relevant in this context.

Firestarter wrote:WHAT IS AL QAEDA?
I will try to describe what Al Qaeda was some 15 years ago. When searching the internet with “Al Qaeda financed CIA”, the most interesting results describe that Al Qaeda was financed in the 1980s by the Reagan-Bush administration: https://www.quora.com/To-what-extent-is ... of-the-CIA
According to stories like this it was not the Taliban that evolved from the Muslim Mujahedeen in Afghanistan, but it was instead Al Qaeda. This is a new conspiracy theory for me: I had already read that the Mujahedeen were supported by the CIA and evolved into the Taliban (instead of Al Qaeda).
In 2005 British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook told the world that Al Qaeda is not really a terrorist organisation at all, but only a database (the translation of “Al Qaeda”) of Muslim fighters used by the CIA. This basically means that the list the CIA keeps of “terrorists” is per definition Al Qaeda. Two months later Cook suddenly died of a heart attack: http://wake-up.acordem.com/blog/22476/



Firestarter wrote:USS COLE – ANOTHER FALSE FLAG
Before 9/11 I had heard about the attacks on the embassies in Tanzania and Kenya in 1998 and the attack on the USS Cole on October 12, 2000 by Al Qaeda. It is highly unlikely that an army ship like the USS Cole would be attacked by a terrorist group, just because it is so difficult (almost impossible).
According to Kevin Ryan security measures were simply bypassed to make the bombing possible, with evidence to suspect that the bombing of the USS Cole was an inside job. The government of Yemen concluded it was an inside job by the USA, with a second bomb going off from inside the ship: https://digwithin.net/2012/10/07/the-uss-cole/



editor wrote:34. Although the FBI now admits that the 2001 anthrax attacks were carried out by one or more U.S. government scientists, a senior FBI official says that the FBI was actually told to blame the Anthrax attacks on Al Qaeda by White House officials (remember what the anthrax letters looked like). Government officials also confirm that the white House tried to link the anthrax to Iraq as a justification for regime change in that country.

Firestarter wrote:ANTHRAX FALSE FLAG ATTACKS
The anthrax attacks started on 18 September, 2001, but were first reported on October 3, and then 2 days later Robert Stevens, reporter at the Sun paper, was the first death because of anthrax. The whole hysteria for a total of 5 people dying because of anthrax until the end of 2001 (including a 94 years old woman) was completely justified, especially since more died because of the vaccine (not even considering all the deaths in the “War on terror”).
In October 2001 Bush and Cheney accuse Al Qaeda, Osama Bin Laden for the anthrax attacks. On October 18, 2001 John McCain implicates that the anthrax comes from Iraq. On October 26, Peter Jennings on ABC News’s World News Tonight calls Saddam Hussein responsible for the anthrax attacks. The FBI quickly destroyed the first Ames strain of anthrax, after it was discovered that it originated from a dead cow in Texas, used in US military research.
If we weren’t surprised by all of the physical laws on 9/11 that were mysteriously broken, it was really not suspicious that those senators against the Patriot Act, Tom Daschle and Patrick Leahy, were intimidated by anthrax letters: http://www.historycommons.org/timeline. ... atriot_act

When it was clear that this anthrax was produced in the USA, on October 27 the Washington Post reported that a lone extremist operating from the USA was probably behind the anthrax attacks. From the summer of 2002 on, the FBI tried to frame Steven Hatfill that worked at USAMRIID (that had passed a lie detector test in January 2002); on June 25 several newspapers were tipped and report that Hatfill’s house has been searched in connection to the anthrax attacks, while he’s constantly under surveillance and harassed by the FBI. But Hatfill comes back fighting - on August 11, 2002 he defends himself in a public speech and Washington Post interview. On June 27, 2008, Hatfill accepts a $5.82 million settlement from the government for his legal claim that the Justice Department and FBI ruined his career and invaded his privacy.


THE ANTHRAX PATSY – BRUCE IVINS
On April 2007, 2007, the respected researcher at USAMRIID Bruce Ivins is subpoenaed to testify (with the promise that he isn’t a suspect) and becomes the fall guy. From November 1, 2007 on Ivins is openly followed (and harassed) by the FBI, to intimidate him and his family.
Since 2000 Ivins was stupid enough to seek help for psychiatric problems. In 2008 Ivins was attending group therapy sessions led by “social worker” Jean Duley. On July 9, 2008, Duley seeks a restraining order against him, because Ivins had told her he has “a very detailed plan to kill his co-workers” at USAMRIID, that Ivins had a history of making homicidal threats, had threatened her, will soon be charged with 5 murders (the anthrax deaths in 2001) and Ivins’ psychiatrist had “called him homicidal, sociopathic with clear intentions”. It is clear that Duley has been talking with the FBI (how could she know he would be charged or about his psychiatrist?). A month later Duley no longer works as a “social worker” (she was probably hired to frame Ivins). Nobody from the group sessions has confirmed that Ivins had homicidal plans: http://www.sharonkgilbert.com/?p=321

From July 10 till July 23, Ivins is locked up in a psychiatric hospital. On July 29, 2008 Ivins is conveniently suicided. Three days later the Los Angeles Times reports that Ivins died just before he would be charged for the 2001 anthrax attacks. The story is that Ivins had swallowed prescription Tylenol mixed with codeine on July 27 and was hospitalised with an overdose and died 2 days later in the hospital. The Frederick Police Department lieutenant determined that “an autopsy wouldn’t be necessary”. Why would a man like Ivins, that would know how to kill himself, commit suicide with poison that would only cause death 2 days later? Ivins was under 24 hours surveillance (harassment) by the FBI, so how could he commit suicide unnoticed?

On August 6, 2008 the FBI presents their case that Bruce Edwards Ivins did all of the anthrax attacks in 2001 by himself, without being suspected for years and keeping a job at the same time with a high clearance, where he hid being a terrorist and made the anthrax powder – case closed. It appears that his emails are the “hardest” evidence. Ivins had even passed a lie detector test in December 2001 about the anthrax attacks. Several colleagues of Ivins said that Ivins was not capable of these anthrax attacks. Anybody with half a brain can see that it would have been impossible for Ivins to perform these anthrax attacks all by himself: https://www.911tap.org/557-news-release ... mmary.html


BIOPORT, BAYER, BMI – GUILTY OF THE ANTHRAX ATTACKS?
BioPort holds the monopoly on vaccines on anthrax in the USA. The Carlyle group, linked to George H.W. "poppy" Bush (whose father, Prescott helped Rockefeller finance Adolf Hitler), owns part of BioPort. BioPort is also connected to the Jacob Rothschild owned Blackstone Group, an investment bank that had the mortgage on WTC-7 (and effectively owns Carlyle). Blackstone was founded in 1985 by Rothschild agents Peter George Peterson and Stefan Schwartzman. Blackstone is also connected to the Kissinger inc.: http://www.rense.com/general15/theoverthrowofus3.htm

Then there’s Bayer that holds the monopoly in the USA for the antibiotics Cipro for anthrax. Bayer was part of the notorious IG Farben - the producer of Zyklon B that was used by the Nazis and owner of the largest Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz. IG Farben was affiliated to Rockefeller’s National City Bank and Standard Oil. The ties between Rockefeller and the IG Farben were never severed: http://www.healingcelebrations.com/smal ... nthrax.htm
Battelle Memorial Institute (BMI) has a partnership with BioPort. During the presidency of Bill Clinton BMI was contracted by the US government to develop a more deadly strain of anthrax (from their laboratories in West Jefferson, Ohio). BMI had gotten the Ames strain of anthrax used in the attacks from USAMRIID. BMI hired William Patrick III for a risk-assessment about dissemination of anthrax powder by mail. The FBI had investigated BMI in December 2001, after the company was discussed in several articles by the Washington Post: http://www.ph.ucla.edu/epi/bioter/FBIfi ... otive.html

From 2000 till 2002 Bruce Ivins had been working for BioPort, to solve problems with their vaccine. According to a 2004 book by Gary Matsumuto (before Ivins was named as a suspect) Bruce Ivins knew that the experimental vaccine given to Gulf War US soldiers since 1991 could cause “toxic, allergic, ulcerative, or lethal reactions". Ivins could have been targeted and suicided because he knew too much about the experiments on US soldiers in the Gulf War. Maybe Bruce Ivins even suspected that Battelle Memorial Institute had motive, expertise, possessed the Ames strain, and had planned the anthrax attacks in advance of 9/11 (there were more bio weapon experts that suddenly died): http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/cienc ... ax-cia.htm
For the short summary of the suspects see the picture.

editor wrote:The NSA admits that it lied about what really happened in the Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964 … manipulating data to make it look like North Vietnamese boats fired on a U.S. ship so as to create a false justification for the Vietnam war
The US government reported attacks by the North Vietnamese “communist” army on the USS Maddox warship (destroyer) in the Gulf of Tonkin on 2 and 4 August 1964.
It has been admitted by the US government that on 2 August, Maddox fired first at 3 Vietnamese torpedo boats.
It has also been admitted that on August 4, Maddox for a duration of 2 hours attacked ghost radar targets, seen by paranoid radar operators, when they fired 249 5-inch shells, 123 3-inch shells, and 4 or 5 depth charges into the void ocean.


In reality on 2 August, the US destroyer Maddox was gathering intelligence (Desoto patrol) close to the North Vietnamese coast. At that time, attacks on North Vietnam by the South Vietnamese navy and the Laotian air force were carried out.
The North Vietnamese thought that Maddox was involved in these attacks. The Vietnamese boats were also attacked from planes from the aircraft carrier Ticonderoga.

As a result of this incident (on 2 August) 2 (of the 3) North Vietnamese torpedo boats were damaged (one couldn’t make it back), while one US plane got some wing damage and the Maddox received a single bullet hole from a Vietnamese machine gun.
The attacks from the planes damaged the torpedo boats.
Four North Vietnamese sailors were killed, 6 wounded. There were no US casualties.

The US Naval task group commander in the Tonkin Gulf, Captain John J. Herrick, immediately ordered a review of the “incident” on 4 August. On 13:27 EDT on 4 August (Washington time) Herrick contacted Washington, to correct his earlier report and said that no North Vietnamese patrol boats had been sighted.
Herrick mentioned “freak weather effects”, “almost total darkness” and an “overeager sonarman” who “was hearing ship’s own propeller beat”.
Herrick’s information was not well received. The Pentagon had already released details of the “attack”, and had already promised strong action.

A mere 4 hours after the attack on 4 August was reported to Washington (14:00 EDT on 4 August), President Johnson decided to retaliate against Vietnam. After Herrick had already informed Washington that there had been no boats in the area of Maddox...
The retaliatory strikes against North Vietnamese naval bases were carried out as planned on 19:00 EDT on 4 August (06:00 on 5 August local time in Vietnam).

The 4 August 1964 “incident”, was used as an argument for the Gulf of Tonkin resolution, which was quickly passed through Congress and signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson on 10 August 1964. The resolution granted LBJ the “authority to assist any Southeast Asian country whose government was considered to be jeopardized by ‘communist aggression’”.
Senator Wayne Morse fought against the Gulf of Tonkin resolution by raising awareness about faulty intelligence involving Maddox. Morse had received a call from an anonymous informant, who urged Morse to investigate official logbooks of Maddox.

Intercepted communications from the Vietnamese were translated wrong to confirm that the North Vietnamese attacked Maddox. American SIGINT analysts assessed North Vietnamese reports as preparations for military operations against the Desoto patrol: http://www.historynet.com/case-closed-t ... cident.htm


Defense Secretary Robert McNamara and President Johnson were in command.
In the 2003 documentary "The Fog of War" McNamara admitted that the 4 August Gulf of Tonkin attack never happened: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5AaGVAipGp0

Some claim that McNamara intentionally misled President Johnson.
In 2001, the LBJ presidential tapes were released, and prove that Lyndon B. Johnson knew that the 4 August “attack” by the North Vietnamese didn’t occur.
In the following recording Johnson instructs McNamara to lie about what happened (1:42-1:52) “You say they fired at us and we responded immediately”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9PBC_NH ... e=youtu.be


In 1965, President Johnson commented in private: "For all I know, our navy was shooting at whales out there".
In 1967, former naval officer John White, wrote a letter to the editor of the “New Haven (CT) Register”: "I maintain that President Johnson, Secretary McNamara and the Joint Chiefs of Staff gave false information to Congress in their report about US destroyers being attacked in the Gulf of Tonkin”.
White repeated this in the 1968 documentary “In the Year of the Pig”.

In 2005 National Security Agency Documents were released that show SIGINT analysts "fit the claim" of the North Vietnamese Attack.
The NSA states: “James Stockdale, then a navy pilot at the scene, who had ‘the best seat in the house from which to detect boats’, saw nothing. No boats, no boat wakes, no ricochets off boats, no boat impacts, no torpedo wakes – nothing but black sea and American fire-power”.

The plans to increase military pressure against the North Vietnamese had already been drawn up before August 1964.
Escalation of the war on Vietnam, led to over 50,000 American deaths and millions of Vietnamese casualties.
Daniel Hallin wrote that journalists had “a great deal of information available which contradicted the official account [of Tonkin Gulf events]; it simply wasn’t used. The day before the first incident, Hanoi had protested the attacks on its territory by Laotian aircraft and South Vietnamese gunboats”: http://fair.org/media-beat-column/30-ye ... etnam-war/


That the Gulf of Tonkin attack on 4 August by the North Vietnamese never happened wasn’t confirmed officially for decades. The NSA was "fearful that [declassification] might prompt uncomfortable comparisons with the flawed intelligence used to justify the war in Iraq”.
If we don’t learn from history, we will be fooled over and over again…

editor wrote:2. A major with the Nazi SS admitted at the Nuremberg trials that – under orders from the chief of the Gestapo – he and some other Nazi operatives faked attacks on their own people and resources which they blamed on the Poles, to justify the invasion of Poland.

The Gleiwitz incident was a false flag attack by Nazi forces posing as Poles on 1 September 1939, against the German radio station in Gleiwitz.
Much of what is known about the Gleiwitz incident comes from the testimony of SS-Sturmbannführer Alfred Naujocks at the Nuremberg trials. Naujocks admitted that he had organised the incident on orders from Heinrich Müller, chief of the Gestapo, and his superior Reinhard Heydrich.
On the night of 31 August 1939, a small group of German operatives dressed in Polish uniforms, led by Naujocks, seized the Gleiwitz station and broadcast an anti-German message in Polish. The attack and broadcast was blamed on anti-German Polish saboteurs.

A day earlier, the Gestapo had arrested Franciszek Honiok, known for sympathizing with the Poles, dressed to look like a saboteur, then killed and left on the scene. His corpse was subsequently presented to the police and press as proof of the Polish attack.
For further evidence, several prisoners from the Dachau concentration camp were dressed in Polish uniforms, shot dead on site, and their faces disfigured to make identification impossible.
The corpses were described in plans as "Konserve" (canned goods).

The Gleiwitz incident was part of Operation Himmler, a series of false flag attacks for which Polish aggression was blamed, as a pretext for invading Poland.
Operation Himmler was supervised by Reinhard Heydrich and managed by Heinrich Müller.
On 1 September 1939, the day following the Gleiwitz attack, Germany invaded Poland – initiating WW II in Europe: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gleiwitz_incident


editor wrote:3. The minutes of the high command of the Italian government – subsequently approved by Mussolini himself – admitted that violence on the Greek-Albanian border was carried out by Italians and falsely blamed on the Greeks, as an excuse for Italy’s 1940 invasion of Greece.

On August 17, 1940, Francesco Jacomoni proposed a false flag attack as a pretext for attacking Greece. In October, Mussolini himself asked for an incident at the Greek-Albanian border that could be used to justify attacking Greece by the Italian army.
Galeazzo Ciano, foreign minister and son in law of the Duce, originally planned it on 24 October, but it only took place 2 days later, the 26th.
In Albania, it was followed by manifestations against the "Greek aggression" and in Italy by a press campaign against Greece, swiftly followed by the Italian ultimatum against Greece and then the attack by the army: http://cassandralegacy.blogspot.nl/2015 ... ample.html


editor wrote:4. Nazi general Franz Halder also testified at the Nuremberg trials that Nazi leader Hermann Goering admitted to setting fire to the German parliament building in 1933, and then falsely blaming the communists for the arson.

At the Nuremberg trials, General Franz Halder stated in an affidavit, that at a lunch on the Führer's birthday in 1943, Hermann Göring boasted that he had set the Reichstag building on fire.
SA Leader Karl Ernst confessed that together with SA Leaders Count Helldorf and Heines they burned down the Reichstag on orders by Joseph Goebbels. Goebbels furnished the incendiary materials of liquid phosphorus and petroleum and access to the passage from his house to the Reichstag building. Karl Ernst was executed on 30 June 1934 by the Nazis for treason.
Goebbels denied these allegations: http://avalon.law.yale.edu/imt/03-18-46.asp

Martin Sommerfeldt, who worked in the Ministry of the Interior in Berlin, believed the Reichstag fire was carried out by men of the SA on orders by Joseph Goebbels.
Men from the SS then killed the SA men involved, to ensure that no witnesses survived. Sommerfeldt claimed that his story was backed by Berlin Gestapo chief, Rudolf Diels, who even knew where the corpses were.

The Nazis arrested some 4000 communists, and the Dutchman Ruud van der Lubbe confessed that he had set fire to the Reichstag all by himself. This confession was so ridiculous that it was dismissed by Rudolf Diels.
Diels was later corrected by Adolf Hitler. Van der Lubbe was sentenced and executed in all justice: http://www.historylearningsite.co.uk/na ... e-of-1933/

Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev admitted in writing that the Soviet Union’s Red Army shelled the Russian village of Mainila in 1939 – while blaming the attack on Finland – as a basis for launching the “Winter War” against Finland. Russian president Boris Yeltsin agreed that Russia had been the aggressor in the Winter War.

The Shelling of Mainila was a military incident on 26 November 1939, where the Red Army shelled the Russian village of Mainila, and declared that the fire had originated from nearby Finland.
The Soviet Union broke diplomatic relations with Finland on November 29 and used the false flag attack to launch the “Winter War” against Finland 4 days later. The Finnish side denied responsibility for the attacks and identified Soviet artillery as their source – Mainila was even out of range of the Finnish artillery.
Years later, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev wrote that the Mainila shelling was organised by Artillery Marshal Grigory Kulik. In 1994, Russian President Boris Yeltsin denounced the Winter War, agreeing it had been a war of aggression: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shelling_of_Mainila

In 1940 Joseph Stalin ordered the NKVD (the precursor of the KGB) to execute 22,000 Polish army officers and civilians - the Katyn massacre – which was blamed on German Nazis.
The 21,768 officers, doctors, policemen and other public servants – captured by the Red Army when it swept into Poland in 1939 – were mainly shot in the Katyn forest in western Russia.
Mikhail Gorbachev admitted in 1990 that the NKVD was to blame for the Katyn massacre.
Only in 2010, Russia’s Parliament, and Vladimir Putin, admitted unequivocally that the Soviets were responsible for the Katyn massacre: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2010/ ... n-massacre


H.G. WELLS
It’s hard to overestimate the influence of the famous author H.G. Wells on the staged hoaxes of the 20th century.

On 30 October 1938, Orson Welles narrated the radio drama broadcast based on “War of the Worlds” by H.G. Wells for Halloween.
Things got out of hand, when some listeners thought that the alien invasion of earth had really started. The authorities ordered CBS to stop the show. The controversy certainly didn’t harm Welles popularity.
It’s not certain how many Americans panicked, some have estimated hundreds of thousands, butwithout any doubt many morons called the authorities to ask what was going on. Some New Jersey media and law enforcement agencies received 40% more telephone calls than normal.
Within 3 weeks, 12,500 articles appeared about the radio drama and its impact. In a speech, Adolf Hitler called this evidence of "the corrupt condition and decadent state of affairs in democracy”: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_War_o ... adio_drama)

This was truly another great victory for state education. Of course this was before the telescreen took complete control of our living rooms (and mind).
The elite learned here that even the most bizarre of stories can be believed by the sheople, when it’s backed up by a convincing media campaign. Trusting the state media and government, in our world that’s upside down, is about the stupidest thing you can do…

The intelligence agencies subsequently mined Wells’ books for possible stories to use.
The World Set Free” (1914) for example is about the invention of atomic energy and atomic bombs.
It is mostly about the financial and political consequences; because energy becomes almost free the economy will collapse and the fear for atomic bombs leads to something like the United Nations: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/1059/1059-h/1059-h.htm

The First men on the moon” (1901) was famously enacted in the 1960s.
And in “The Shape of things to come” (1933) Wells predicted the Second World War to start in 1940: http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks03/0301391h.html

Re: The Ever-Growing List of ADMITTED False Flag Attacks

There’s of course a lot more on the war in Vietnam than the Gulf of Tonkin...
The Phoenix program is very interesting for anybody interested in the dirty war in Vietnam, and there is also some admitted false flag activity in it.

The CIA created Phoenix in Saigon in 1967, to identify civilian leaders and supporters of the National Liberation Front (NLF); and to detain, torture, and kill them using every means possible.
Phoenix operated in South Vietnam from 1968 to 1972.
Originally called ICEX-SIDE (Intelligence Coordination and Exploitation – Screening, Interrogation and Detention of the Enemy), the program was renamed Phoenix for symbolic purposes. In time, the mere mention of Phoenix, the omnipotent bird of prey with a blacklist in one claw and a snake in the other, was enough to terrorise people into submission.

Phoenix consisted of 3 parts:
1) Catching and killing suspected Vietcong sympathisers.
2) Locking up and torturing the Vietnamese.
3) Intelligence gathering.

As Phoenix operations mostly targeted civilians, there were special laws called “An Tri” that allowed the capture and prosecution of any suspected Vietcong member and their sympathisers.
The Provincial Reconnaissance Units (PRU) became the most controversial element of Phoenix. These units were created, trained, equipped, and managed by the CIA; they worked in complete secrecy.

The tactic was called counter terror
The Phoenix program mimicked the tactics of the Vietcong. They dressed as Vietcong, hiding during the day and travelling at night.
The CIA listed their targets; they usually did their barbarous murders at night and also regularly slaughtered their families and witnesses.
They used leaflets and other propaganda tools to make the Vietnamese believe that these attacks were done by the Vietcong (VC).
This is false flag terror, isn’t it?

They issued comic books explaining the benefits of being a snitch. They dropped billions of propaganda leaflets throughout the country. They forced Vietnam’s peasants to form local militias to combat the Vietcong.
Between 26,000 and 41,000 Vietnamese were killed.
The CIA would have the PRU cut out their victims’ pineal gland and even have them eat their liver.
Because of the supposed superstition of the Vietnamese, they hoped they would believe that their victims would not only be killed but also denied an afterlife.
They left the eye of god painted on corpses to terrify the Vietnamese.

Using a CIA Front company Pacific Architects and Engineers, the CIA built prisons all over the country, where political prisoners were tortured. Vietnam was covered with these torture sites. Inside the prisoners were subjected to horrific tortures, starvation, beatings, electric shock, and rape.
The torture sites are similar to today’s CIA black sites which now torture people to produce real or fabricated intelligence, recruit double agents, break people’s spirits and terrify the slaves into submission.
The Phoenix program was supposedly a massive program to capture and kill the Vietcong with the captured being tortured to reveal more names.

Legendary CIA officer Lucien Conein described Phoenix as a very good blackmail scheme for the central government: “If you don’t do what I want, you’re VC”.
In every village the CIA appointed an official responsible for monthly interviews of the head of each household. In practice these officials were members of the corrupt elite, who in turn turned anybody dissatisfied with the elite in as NLF members.
Everybody sought to use their positions to get rich: drug dealing, embezzlement, prostitution and protection rackets were how the CIA’s allies mainly occupied themselves. Of course many US Contractors, Military officers and CIA Officers also managed to earn fortunes with these kinds of activities.

In today’s Brave New World, Special Forces are CIA foot soldiers involved in a secret war in 140 countries. There is no telling how many people they have assassinated.
Andre Vltchek estimates that 8 million people died as a result of America’s wars in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam…

The USA sent the same people involved in the Phoenix program to advise El Salvador on how to wage war on its own peasants.
In Nicaragua for example Felix Rodriguez was used, who had been a PRU adviser in the Phoenix program. Death Squads were a major element in these programs. In Nicaragua they trained the Contras to engage in drug trafficking, terror and assassination, including against women and children: http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-phoeni ... am/5506322


In the wake of 9/11, Phoenix became the template for policing the American empire and fighting its eternal “War on Terror”. So successful were Phoenix-like operations in Iraq that in 2004, Lt. Col. David Kilcullen, one of the US government’s top terrorism advisors, called for a “global Phoenix program.
According to the official story Col. Theodore Westhusing, who didn’t agree on the “War on terror” committed suicide in June 2005, leaving a note “I cannot support a mission that leads to corruption, human rights abuses and liars”: https://www.thenation.com/article/reviv ... r-tactics/

Phoenix has also become the template for providing internal security for America’s elite. This process also began immediately after 9/11 with the Patriot Act and a series of Presidential executive orders, which have legalised the administrative detention and murder of American citizens.
Just as Phoenix established “Intelligence Operations and Coordination Centers” in every province and district in South Vietnam, the Department of Homeland Security has established Fusion Centers and the Department of Justice has established Joint Terrorism Task Forces across the USA to coordinate all the police, civic, security, and military units in an area.
This merging of government and corporate forces against the public is perhaps the most insidious of the Phoenix program’s effects on American society.
Many key phrases in the War on Terror, including “administrative detention”, “high value target” and “targeted assassination” were already used in Phoenix.

In our Brave New World, CIA kidnappings, torture, and assassinations are glorified on TV and the movies for propaganda.
Now that the Phoenix structure is firmly in place, it is only a matter of time until we enter the final phase, a continuing array of (false flag) terror, while constitutional rights are systematically violated by a terrorist government: http://www.feedyourneedtoread.com/featu ... etnam-war/


The most named source for information on Phoenix is the book “The Phoenix Program“ (1990) by Douglas Valentine: https://ia800400.us.archive.org/11/item ... entine.pdf
I cannot recommend this book, however. Valentine tries to explain how the CIA works as a whole, but in my opinion this goal was too ambitious...

I actually found the appendix to the book more interesting than the book itself: http://hestories.info/the-phoenix-program.html?page=38
The appendix details an example of a Psyops Comic Book “Gia dinh ong Ba va Chien Dich Phung Hoang” (Mr, Ba's Family and the Phoenix Operation).
This had to teach the Vietnamese that the “good” Americans will help them to defeat the “evil” Vietcong.

Caption 3. The cruel Communists kill innocent people again!
Image

Caption 4. Following is the news: "This morning at nine A.M., a Lambretta was blown up by a Communist mine five kilometers outside Phung Hiep village. Two children were killed, three women wounded. The Communists continue to terrorize people!"

Caption 5 ."Hello, sister Tu!"
"Why are you so late?"
"Hello, brother and sister. I am sorry I am late. I left early this morning, but we had to stop at the bridge because it was destroyed by a Communist bomb. We had to wait for the bridge to be repaired by a military engineering unit."

Caption 6. "Mr. Ba, you are asked to pay farm tax to the Liberation Front!"

Caption 7. "This year the crop is poor, but the Communists still collect taxes. It is a miserable situation. I have heard there is much security in Phung Phu village. There taxes are not collected by the Communists any more thanks to the Phoenix operation. I wonder why such an operation has not come to our village?" "Perhaps because nobody provides them with information! This afternoon the Phoenix operation agents posted a notice at the intersection. I will go and see it tomorrow."
(…)
Caption 16. "The two Communists are very dangerous. We can only have peace and security when they are captured."

Caption 17. "Ladies, do you know that the two Communists are captured? From now on our village will be secure. There will be no more assassinations or tax collectors. The Phoenix operation is very effective!"
