America’s Phoney Wars

A History of the USA’s Attempt to Engage in War to Further its own Corrupt Policies

A Six-part Investigative
Report by Paul Proteus

PART TWO:
PROJECT NORTHWOODS
    Would it be too far-fetched, too scandalous, or too insensitive to propose that the US Government, or high powered elite members of that government, pre-planned, instigated and carried out acts of terrorism on its own citizens on September 11th? The answer unfortunately is NO. It has been OFFICIALLY REVEALED via declassified government documentation that in the past the US military and government has covertly planned to perpetrate acts of terror upon innocent civilians in order to justify an engagement in conflict that would benefit the government’s agenda. Given these facts, we must entertain a possibility that the mainstream media would not ever consider investigating: were the WTC buildings and the lives of those who worked there sacrificed by American elites in order to engage in another Phoney American war?

THE FOLLOWING FACTS DESCRIBE HOW AT THE HEIGHT OF THE COLD WAR, THE US JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF, UNDER THE CHAIRMANSHIP OF GENERAL LYMAN L. LEMNITZER, DREW UP PLANS IN 1961 TO ‘CREATE’ AND LAUNCH A WAR AGAINST CUBA, BASED SOLELY ON A FABRIC OF LIES. A WAR, THAT WOULD DOUBTLESS KILL MANY, IN ORDER TO SUPRESS THE THREAT THAT THE US GOVERNMENT PERCIEVED COMMUNISM TO BE.

     The first untruth that the JCS (Joint Chiefs Of Staff) made was to the new president, JFK, telling him that America should press ahead with an invasion of Cuba that would trigger an internal uprising in Cuba against Fidel Castro, thus ensuring his speedy downfall. This was simply a lie. The CIA itself had reports that stated that the majority of the Cuban public looked upon Castro as a hero after he had ousted the excessive and repressive regime of Batista two years previously. Any uprising against Castro was very unlikely at this time. Indeed, Lemnitzer himself knew this to be the case and would later refer to the CIA Bay Of Pigs operation that followed as ‘The Cuban debacle’. Nevertheless, at the time Lemnitzer and the JCS submitted a positive recommendation for the operation, possibly knowing that the CIA led invasion would fail and that he could then push for a more active involvement in Cuba, and around the world, for himself, the Pentagon and the JCS.  The subterfuge, deception and corruption we have come to know and expect our ‘democratic’ governments to subject us to is rampant even between the differing levels within said governments.  As with any institutional structure, there is always someone who knows more of the real agenda than the puppets whose strings they pull.
















    
    




After the inevitably bungled Bay of Pigs operation, responsibility for dealing with Cuba was indeed shifted from the CIA to the Pentagon, where the project would be known as OPERATION MONGOOSE. Under the guise of Lemnitzer and Air-Force One star General Edward G. Lansdale, the Pentagon saw its opportunity to further remove itself from civilian authority, particularly that of JFK who was seen by many generals as a ‘no win chief’ who did not understand military judgements. Military officials craved for the good old days of jurisdiction under the military mind of president Eisenhower, and many government elites were this way inclined also. Patriots in the military were becoming frustrated and leaning more and more to the right, venting this frustration through anti-Communism.
     According to recently released, long hidden documents, the JCS drew up and had approved plans for what may be the most corrupt and insidious operation in the history of the US Government. These plans, code-named OPERATION NORTHWOODS, put a haunting perspective behind the September 11th 2001 events. They proposed launching a secret and violent war of terrorism against their own country in order to condition the people of the USA into supporting an intended war against Cuba. These sickening plans called for innocent American civilians to be shot, for Cuban refugees to be blown up, for violent and continued acts of terrorism to be perpetrated in major American cities, for innocents to be framed for bombings, and for planes to be hijacked. All of these things would then be blamed on Fidel Castro and Cuba, thus inciting hatred for him and Communism, and instigating the public backing that the JCS needed as an excuse to launch the pre-planned war. This all sounds just too chillingly familiar in the current climate when we think of the WTC bombing in 1993, the Murrah bombing and McVeigh, Flight TWA 800 (which it appears we may have just seen a reconstruction of), the hijackings of September 11th and the inciting of hatred for Osama Bin Laden without any evidence that he carried out the attacks. (The mass  media has always been an invaluable source of propaganda for the government and is even more so now as both parties have so much more to gain financially and in terms of authority, by operating in this way).
















LIES, PROVOCATION
AND THE MASTERMINDING OF TERROR


     By February 1962 it was clear that an uprising in Cuba was highly unlikely. In addition, it was generally accepted that Castro had no desire to attack America or anything belonging to America. Lansdale had also been told to drop all anti-Castro efforts by Robert Kennedy, and the JCS saw their opportunities slipping away. There was only one option left for Lemnitzer and Lansdale, and that was NORTHWOODS. The plans were quickly drawn up to TRICK the US public with LIES, making them believe they were under attack from Cuba, who should become hated.

     A report on the Cuba project dated 3/9/1962 (document 133 via the
nara.gov search process) outlines the corrupt strategy of operation Northwoods – it states that:
US military intervention will result from a period of heightened US-Cuban tensions which place the United States in the position of suffering justifiable grievances. World opinion, and the United Nations forum should be favorably affected by developing the international image of the Cuban government as rash and irresponsible, and as an alarming and unpredictable threat to the peace of the Western Hemisphere.
    A further report of 4/9/1962 (Doc 97 on nara.gov) states that the US could “bolster the justification for intervention, if required, to provide a stronger case for US military action…” making it “more convincing to the rest of the world”. Many of the Northwoods documents go into extensive detail about the proposed actions that the operation would involve. When reading through these proposals it is not hard to imagine such proposals having been made in preparation of the Sept. 11th attacks. Simply replace the word ‘Cuba’ with ‘Al Quaeda’, ‘Communism’ with ‘Islamic Fundamentalism’, and ‘Castro’ with ‘Bin Laden’, and the scenario is very similar.
     The report of 3/9/1962 (
nara.gov doc 138) outlines a plan of “legitimate provocation” against Cuba, “a cover and deception plan” in order to “provoke Cuban reactions”. It advocates “Harassment plus deceptive actions to convince the Cubans of imminent invasion…”. Also planned was “a series of well co-ordinated incidents…in and around Guantanamo to give genuine appearance of being done by hostile Cuban forces”.
     It is clear that Lemnitzer and the JCS had gone over the edge. In a Memorandum of 7/27/1962 (
nara.gov doc 63), they admitted that the operation would mean a soar in both Cuban and American casualties, but that they intended to go ahead with it anyway. The following, from the report of 4/9/1962 (nara.gov docs 138-42) is a summary of the corrupt incidents that the US government would instigate in and around Gauntanamo to entice public backing for their war:
(1) Start rumours (many). Use clandestine radio.
(2) Land friendly Cubans in uniform “over the fence” to stage attack on US base.
(3)  Capture Cuban (friendly) saboteurs inside the base.
(4)  Start riots near the base main gate (friendly Cubans)
(5)  Blow up ammunition inside the base; start fires.
(6)  Burn aircraft on air base (sabotage)
(7)  Lob mortar shells from outside of base into base. Some damage to installations.
(8)  Capture assault teams approaching from the sea or vicinity of Guantanamo City.
(9)  Capture militia group which storms the base
(10)  Sabotage ship in harbour; large fires - - napthalene
(11)  Sink ship near harbour entrance. Conduct funerals for mock victims.
    The following sections of the report begin to outline the plots of terror that the US Government would covertly instigate upon innocent people. The first suggestion was to re-create an incident of 1898 when a mysterious explosion aboard the battleship Maine in Havana Harbour killed 266 US soldiers and sparked the Spanish-American war with Cuba. The horrific explosion influenced more than a million volunteers for duty. The Northwoods documents continue:
Remember, the Maine incident could be arranged in several forms:
a. We could blow up a ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba.
b. We could blow up a drone (unmanned vessel) anywhere in the Cuban waters…The presence of Cuban planes or ships merely investigating the intent of the vessel could be fairly compelling evidence that the ship was taken under attack…Casualty lists in the newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation…
Such casualty lists have been printed all over the world for the attacks on September 11th, in addition to the vast amount of media coverage of funerals, personal tragedy stories etc. Is it too far fetched to imagine that the US government is exploiting such outlets now in the same sickening fashion that was proposed in 1962? The report continues:
We could develop a communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami areas, in other Florida cities and even in Washington…
(
nara.gov doc 140)…the terror campaign could be pointed at Cuban refugees seeking haven in the United States. We could sink a boat load of Cubans enroute to Florida (real or simulated). We could foster attempts on lives of Cuban refugees in the United States…
    This evidence conclusively proves that the US government willingly planned to sacrifice the lives of people in their own country to further political aims. Playing with people’s lives in this way is indicative of a totalitarian state controlling ruling body, and is tantamount to fascism. In today’s culture, the US government is even more power driven, with heightened political strategies. Who is to say they are not currently putting similar sick plans into action regarding the current spate of terrorism.
     There seemed to be no limit to the lengths that the JCS would go:
Exploding a few plastic bombs in carefully chosen spots, the arrest of Cuban agents and the release of prepared documents substantiating Cuban involvement also would be helpful in projecting the idea of an irresponsible government.
Forgive me if I am wrong but does this not make the US government themselves the ‘terrorists’? These wonderful plans then delve into areas that are very sensitive considering the events of September 11th – airplanes…
Use of MIG type aircraft by US pilots could provide additional provocation. Harassment of civil air, attacks on surface shipping and destruction of US military drone aircraft by MIG type planes would be useful as complementary actions.
     An F-86 properly painted would convince air passengers that they saw a Cuban MIG…

(
nara.gov doc 141) …Hijacking attempts against civil air and surface craft should appear to continue as harassing measures condoned by the government of Cuba… It is possible to create an incident which will demonstrate convincingly that a Cuban aircraft has attacked and shot down a chartered civil air liner enroute from the US to Jamaica, Guatamala, Venezuala or Panama. The destination would be chosen only to cause the flight plan route to cross Cuba. The passengers could be a group of college students off on a holiday, or any group of persons with a common interest to support chartering a non-scheduled flight…
    The plan was to replace said aircraft with an identical drone, flown by remote control, and land the original plane at an airforce base where passengers, boarded under prepared aliases, would be evacuated. The drone would then fly the route and when over Cuba, emit a distress signal before being destroyed by radio signal.
     A further plan involving a plane involved a USAF plane appearing to be shot down by Cuban MIGs in an ‘unprovoked attack’ over international waters. The pilot would broadcast that he was under attack and then cease all transmission. He would then fly back to a base where the plane would be given a new tail number and the pilot would resume his real identity. Then a US submarine would disperse some destroyed plane parts in the water. Thus the result is a missing plane and pilot and wreckage in international waters after reports of an attack by MIG aircraft.
     Could similar plots have actually been carried out on September 11th? Remote controlled drone planes seem more likely than suicidal Arabs with penknives. The drone technology is not make believe, here it is referred to in military documents from the 60s. It was also touted earlier this year as a possible deterrent to hijackings by British Airways.
     The Northwoods documents also indicate US strategies WITHIN CUBA. One report (
nara.gov doc 35) suggests “all out psychological warfare”, another report (doc 38-9) advises that people must be reassured of their rights, that food should be distributed, as should “Care where talk of vengeance is concerned”, and also air drop leaflets (propaganda) as a reassurance that the Status Quo of the current government in the region wouldn’t return after ousted. Again, all of this sounds very familiar doesn’t it. In the report of 4/9/1962 (doc 90) there is the suggestion to create the façade of an urgent humanitarian requirement, a plot to exploit, with a propaganda campaign, the execution of 100 Cuban prisoners as justification for US intervention (doc 91), and the description of implementation of police state methods of control (doc 92-3). That’s nice of them…
     The documents of Project Northwoods are extremely revealing. By putting them in the context of September 11th 2001, I am not attempting to present them as evidence that the current US Government is terrorizing its own people to further twisted political agendas. I am simply attempting to put the point across that it cannot be dismissed out of hand that factions of elites within the governmental structure had a hand in planning or implementing the current horrific events in this world, after all THEY HAVE DONE SO BEFORE. The numerous other articles that appear daily on this very website prove without any doubt that politically, America can and will benefit from these events, and in some twisted minds this may be justification for allowing these things to happen. Further installments of this report will also show that to be the case. After-all, are we really to believe that the greatest political superpower on this planet, the most technologically advanced nation on the earth, with the pinnacle of intelligence and surveillance capabilities can be brought to its knees by a small group of ‘extremists’? If you do currently accept this to be the case, then ask yourself why you believe that version of events, ask yourself where is even one shred of evidence to corroborate what the American Government is telling us is the truth concerning these attacks. Read PropagandaMatrix’s
PRIOR KNOWLEDGE ARCHIVE, read the WHO BENEFITS articles, read about the oil, about Bin Laden’s close links to the CIA, to the BUSH family, read about the sharp rise in sales of airline stocks and shares immediately PRIOR to September 11th and you may change your opinions about what’s really going on. You may just come to the conclusion that just like the US conflict with Cuba 40 years ago, this war on ‘terrorism’ is another one of America’s Phoney wars.
