False flag attacks occur when government engages in covert operations
designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations seem
as if they are being carried out by other entities.
False flag terrorism is a favorite political tactic used by
governments worldwide. They influence elections, guide national and
international policy, and are cynically used to formulate propaganda and
shape public opinion as nations go to war.
Nero and the Great Fire of Rome
The Roman consul and historian Cassius Dio, his contemporary Suetonius and others say the Emperor Nero was responsible for the Great Fire of Rome in 64 AD.
Legend claims Nero had one-third of the city torched as an excuse to
build Domus Aurea, a 300 acre palatial complex that included a towering
statue of himself, the Colossus of Nero.
Prior to the fire, the Roman Senate had rejected the emperor’s bid to level a third of the city to make way for a “Neropolis,” an urban renewal project.
The Roman historian Tacitus
wrote that when the population of Rome held Nero responsible for the
fire, he shifted blame on the Christians for “hating the human race” and
starting the fire.
The Spanish American War: Remember the Maine
By the late 1800s, the United States was looking for an excuse to
kick Spain out of Cuba. U.S. business was heavily invested in sugar,
tobacco and iron on the Caribbean island.
The U.S.S. Maine
was sent to Havana in January of 1898 to protect these business
interests after a local insurrection broke out. Three weeks later, early
on the morning of February 15, an explosion destroyed the forward third of the ship anchored in Havana’s harbor, killing more than 270 American sailors.
President McKinley blamed Spain after the U.S. Naval Court of Inquiry declared that a naval mine caused the explosion.
American newspapers blamed the Spanish despite a lack of evidence. “You furnish the pictures and I’ll furnish the war,” newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst told Frederic Remington after the illustrator reported that the situation in Cuba did not warrant invasion.
A number of historians and researchers later argued that the ship was
blown up by the United States to provide a false flag pretext to invade
Cuba and expel Spain.
The United States occupied Cuba from 1898 until 1902, although an
amendment to a joint resolution of Congress forbid the U.S. to annex the
Wilson’s Pretext for War: The Sinking of the Lusitania
Nearly two thousand travelers, including one hundred Americans, were killed on May 7, 1915, when a German U-boat torpedoed the RMS Lusitania, a luxury Cunard Line British ocean liner.
to the sinking, the German embassy in Washington issued a warning.
Newspapers in the United States refused to print the warning or
acknowledge the German claim that the ship carried munitions.
Wilson’s government issued a flurry of diplomatic protests after the sinking and exploited the tragedy two years later as a pretext for America to enter the First World War.
Nearly a hundred years later, in 2008, divers discovered the Lusitania carried more than four million rounds of rifle ammunition.
“There were literally tons and tons of stuff stored in unrefrigerated
cargo holds that were dubiously marked cheese, butter and oysters,” Gregg Bemis, an American businessman who owns the rights to the wreck and is funding its exploration, told The Daily Mail.
Hitler’s Fascist Dictatorship: The Reichstag Fire
In February of 1933, a month after convincing Germany’s president
that parliament must be eliminated, Hitler and the Nazis instigated the Reichstag fire.
Hitler then urged president Hindenburg to issue an emergency decree
restricting personal liberty, including the right to free expression
and a free press, limitations on the rights of association and assembly,
warrantless searches of homes, property confiscation, and violations of
postal, telegraphic and telephonic communications “permissible beyond
the legal limits otherwise prescribed.”
The Nazis used the decree and cracked down on their political opponents . They worked behind the scenes to force through the Enabling Act, which legally allowed Hitler to obtain plenary powers and establish a dictatorship.
Gestapo Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring
would admit that “the people can always be brought to the bidding of
the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are
being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and
exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.”
Prelude to World War: The Gleiwitz Incident
Six years after the Reichstag Fire, the Nazis staged the Gleiwitz incident.
Nazi commandos raided a German radio station in Gleiwitz, Upper
Silesia, Germany. The raid was part of Operation Himmler, a series of
operations undertaken by the SS as Hitler set the stage for the invasion
of Poland and the start of the Second World War.
SS operatives dressed in Polish uniforms attacked the radio station,
broadcast an anti-German message in Polish, and left behind the body of a
German Silesian known for sympathizing with the Poles. The corpse was
then offered to the press as evidence that the Poles had attacked the
Israeli False Flag Terror: The Lavon Affair
In 1954, the Israelis activated a terrorist cell
in response to the United States making friends with the Egyptian
government and its pan-Arab leader, Gamal Abdel Nasser. The Israelis
were worried Nasser would nationalize the Suez Canal and continue
Egypt’s blockade of Israeli shipping through the canal.
Israeli Prime Minister David Ben Gurion decided a false flag
terrorist attack on American interests in Egypt would sour the new
relationship. He recruited and dispatched a terror cell that pretended
to be Egyptian terrorists.
The plan, however, contained a fatal flaw. Israel’s top secret cell,
Unit 131, was infiltrated by Egyptian intelligence. After a member of
the cell was arrested and interrogated, he revealed the plot and this
led to more arrests. Israeli agents were subjected to a public trial
revealing details of the plan to firebomb the U.S. Information Agency’s
libraries, a British-owned Metro-Goldwyn Mayer theatre, a railway
terminal, the central post office, and other targets.
In order to deflect blame, the Israeli government tried to frame its
own Defense Minister, Pinhas Lavon, but the true nature of the plot was
eventually made public.
Operation Northwoods: Targeting American Citizens
In the covert war against the communist regime in Cuba under the
CIA’s Operation Mongoose, the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff unanimously
proposed state-sponsored acts of terrorism in side the United States.
The plan included shooting down hijacked American airplanes,
the sinking of U.S. ships, and the shooting of Americans on the streets
of Washington, D.C. The outrageous plan even included a staged NASA
disaster that would claim the life of astronaut John Glenn.
Reeling under the embarrassing failure of the CIA’s botched Bay of
Pigs invasion of Cuba, president Kennedy rejected the plan in March of
1962. A few months later, Kennedy denied the plan’s author, General
Lyman Lemnitzer, a second term as the nation’s highest ranking military
In November of 1963, Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas.
Gulf of Tonkin: Phantom Attack on the U.S, Military
On August 4, 1964, President Lyndon Johnson went on national television and told the nation that North Vietnam had attacked U.S. ships.
“Repeated acts of violence against the armed forces of the United
States must be met not only with alert defense, but with a positive
reply. That reply is being given as I speak tonight,” Johnson declared.
Congress soon passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution,
which provided Johnson with pre-approved authority to conduct military
operations against North Vietnam. By 1969, over 500,000 troops were
fighting in Southeast Asia.
Johnson and his Secretary of Defense, Robert McNamara, had bamboozled Congress and the American people.
In fact, North Vietnam had not attacked the USS Maddox, as the Pentagon
claimed, and the “unequivocal proof” of an “unprovoked” second attack
against the U.S. warship was a ruse.
Operation Gladio: State Sponsored Terror Blamed on the Left
Following the Second World War, the CIA and Britain’s MI6 collaborated through NATO on Operation Gladio, an effort to create a “stay behind army” to fight communism in the event of a Soviet invasion of Western Europe.
Gladio quickly transcended its original mission and became a covert
terror network consisting of rightwing militias, organized crime
elements, agents provocateurs and secret military units. The so-called
stay behind armies were active in France, Belgium, Denmark, The Netherlands, Norway, Germany, and Switzerland.
Gladio’s “Strategy of Tension”
was designed to portray leftist political groups in Europe as
terrorists and frighten the populace into voting for authoritarian
governments. In order to carry out this goal, Gladio operatives
conducted a number of deadly terrorists attacks that were blamed on
leftists and Marxists.
In August of 1980, Gladio operatives bombed a train station in Bologna,
killing 85 people. Initially blamed on the Red Brigades, it was later
discovered that fascist elements within the Italian secret police and Licio Gelli,
the head of the P2 Masonic Lodge, were responsible for the terror
attack. Other fascist groups, including Avanguardia Nazionale and Ordine
Nuovo, were mobilized and engaged in terror.
Operation Gladio ultimately claimed the lives of hundreds of people across Europe.
According to Vincenzo Vinciguerra,
a Gladio terrorist serving a life-sentence for murdering policemen, the
reason for Gladio was simple. It was designed “to force these people,
the Italian public, to turn to the state to ask for greater security.
This is the political logic that lies behind all the massacres and the
bombings which remain unpunished, because the state cannot convict
itself or declare itself responsible for what happened.”
