ABC Reports US Military Chiefs Approved Terror Acts on US Soil

A revealing ABC news article begins, "In the early 1960s, America's top military leaders reportedly drafted plans to kill innocent people and commit acts of terrorism in U.S. cities to create public support for a war against Cuba." The article goes on to say that the plans, code-named Operation Northwoods, were approved in writing by the top US military chiefs. These plans even proposed that the US military secretly blow up an American ship and hijack US planes as a false pretext for war. Does this ring a bell? You can read this disturbing article on the ABC website at:

The www.WantToKnow.info team presents this information to inspire in you a desire to strengthen democracy and to build a better world together. Our website focuses on providing reliable, verifiable facts which are being hidden from public view. By spreading this important information, each of us can make a difference.

Click here to access 181 pages of declassified US military documents related to Operation Northwoods on the website of the US National Archives and Records Administration. To read the 15 most revealing pages of these eye-opening documents posted on the National Security Archive of George Washington University, see http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/news/20010430/doc1.pdf If you don't have time to read the original documents, take a look at the key excerpts below. We invite you to then ask yourself, is it beyond comprehension that this same kind of thinking and planning could have led to 9/11?

Remember that these documents were approved in writing by the Joint Chiefs of Staff—the top generals of each branch of the US armed forces—and submitted to Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara in 1962, though never acted upon. The plans were classified top secret so that the American public would not know how it was being manipulated. They came to light only because of a Freedom of Information Act request in the late 1990s.

Excerpts from Operation Northwoods Documents

Page 1 of File (Memorandum)

13 March 1962

MEMORANDUM FOR THE SECRETARY OF DEFENSE

Subject: Justification for US Military Intervention in Cuba

The Joint Chiefs of Staff have considered the attached Memorandum for the Chief of Operations, Cuba Project, which responds to a request of that office for brief but precise description of pretexts which could provide justification for US military intervention in Cuba. It is assumed that a single agency will be given the primary responsibility for developing military and para-military aspects of the basic plan. It is recommended that this responsibility for both overt and covert military operations be assigned the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Page 5 of File (page 2 of Joint Chiefs report)

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.

Page 10-11 of File (page 7-8 of Joint Chiefs report)

A series of well coordinated incidents will be planned to take place in and around Guantanamo to give genuine appearance of being done by hostile Cuban forces.

(1)
     Start rumors (many). Use clandestine radio.
(2)
     Land friendly Cubans in uniform "over-the-fence" to stage attack on base.
(3)
     Capture Cuban (friendly) saboteurs inside 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.
(8)
     Capture assault teams approaching from the sea or vicinity of Guantanamo City.
(9)
     Capture militia group which storms base.
(10)  Sabotage ship in harbor; large fires – naphthalene.
(11)  Sink ship near harbor entrance. Conduct funerals for mock-victims.

We could blow up a US ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba. Casualty lists in US newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation. We could develop a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington.

Page 12 of File (page 9 of Joint Chiefs report)

Use of [Soviet] MIG type aircraft by US pilots could provide additional provocation. Attacks on surface shipping and destruction of US military drone aircraft by MIG type planes would be useful as complementary actions. Reasonable copies of the MIG could be produced from US resources in about three months.


Page 13 of File
(page 10 of Joint Chiefs report)


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 airliner enroute from the United States. The destination would be chosen only to cause the flight plan to cross Cuba. The passengers could be a group of college students off on a holiday.

An aircraft at Eglin AFB would be painted and numbered as an exact duplicate for a civil registered aircraft belonging to a CIA proprietary organization in the Miami area. At the designated time the duplicate would be substituted for the actual civil aircraft and would be loaded with selected passengers, all boarded under carefully prepared aliases. The actual aircraft would be converted to a drone.

The drone aircraft and the actual aircraft will be scheduled to allow a rendezvous south of Florida. From the rendezvous point the passenger-carrying aircraft will descend to minimum altitude and go directly into an auxiliary field at Eglin AFB where arrangements will have been made to evacuate the passengers and return the aircraft to its original status. The drone aircraft meanwhile will continue to fly the filed flight plan. When over Cuba the drone will be transmitting on the international distress frequency a "MAY DAY" message stating he is under attack by Cuban MIG aircraft. The transmission will be interrupted by destruction of the aircraft which will be triggered by radio signal.


Note from WantToKnow.info:

Remember that these and other government leaders think of this like a chess game. Sometimes you have to sacrifice your own in order to win the game. Zbigniew Brzezinski, former US National Security Advisor and co-founder with David Rockefeller of the Trilateral Commission, titled his 1997 book The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives. In this seminal book on American foreign policy, Brzezinksi states that because of popular resistance to US military expansionism, his ambitious strategy for "American global primacy" can't be implemented "except in the circumstance of a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat." (The Grand Chessboard page 211).

Consider also that in September 2000, a think-tank named Project for the New American Century (PNAC) published a blueprint for maintaining global US preeminence and shaping the international security order in line with American interests. Written before the 2000 Presidential election, this revealing report was commissioned by future Vice President Cheney, future Defense Secretary Rumsfeld, future Deputy Defense Secretary Wolfowitz, and Florida Governor Jeb Bush. The report shows that the Bush administration intended to take military control of Persian Gulf oil whether or not Saddam Hussein was in power. [See article in Sunday Herald, 9/7/02 or click here to download the report--Rebuilding America's Defenses]

Considering the above information, is it beyond comprehension that tactics similar to Operation Northwoods might have been used in relation to the 9/11 attacks in order to create "a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat?" Could 9/11 have been the pretext upon which to build a War on Terror in order to "maintain global US preeminence?"
