Wise Up Journal
by Gabriel O’Hara
Seymour Hersh, a Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist for The New Yorker, speaking at the Campus Progress journalism conference revealed that there was a meeting in Vice-President Dick Cheney’s office on how to start a false flag war with Iran. Hersh said, “There was a dozen ideas proffered about how to trigger a war. The one that interested me the most was why don’t we build — we in our shipyard — build four or five boats that look like Iranian PT boats. Put Navy seals on them with a lot of arms. And next time one of our boats goes to the Straits of Hormuz, start a shoot-up. Might cost some lives. And it was rejected because you can’t have Americans killing Americans. That’s the kind of — that’s the level of stuff we’re talking about. Provocation. But that was rejected.” This leaves us to ponder: was any of the other 11 ideas on “how to trigger a war” with Iran accepted?

MSNBC Keith Olbermann: Dick Cheney is Worst Person in the World
Not the first time or the last that such actions and worse were considered and signed as WIKIPEDIA states about Operation Northwoods, “proposed within the United States government in 1962. The plan called for CIA or other operatives to kill innocent people and commit acts of terrorism in U.S. cities to create public support for a war against Castro-led Cuba.”
“Operation Northwoods was drafted by the Joint Chiefs of Staff and signed by then-Chairman Lyman Lemnitzer, and sent to the Secretary of Defense.” This operation was given the go ahead all the way to the top of Kennedy’s administration where it was stopped. Operation Northwoods was classified for 40 years. Cheney signed a 2000 PNAC document which called for a “new pearl harbor” as the only way to rapidly transform the U.S military and gain permanent footholds in the middle east, but what does Cheney have classified? WIKIPEDIA also states, “it included plans for hijackings and bombings followed by the use of phony evidence that would blame the terrorist acts on foreign governments.” Although this information might seem new to some, the False Flag military tactic is nothing new and has been used for hundreds of years. Will the public be fooled again? Probably, unless they are informed on such tactics that a decent person could not even imagine. Although after showing a “decent” person documents they still might not be able to imagine other people not being as “decent” and instead of questioning the belief of blindly trusting authority they will blame the messenger.
