Imagine you live in a village of 270 houses. One ordinary day, three homeowners return from work to find their houses demolished with explosives, and all who were at home, dead.
The government is already on the scene. They explain to the distraught individuals that they were simply conducting dummy explosives drills in those three houses – and nowhere else – all at the same time that day, and to their surprise the drills went live.
The government shrugs, saying they found the culprits; but speaking to them is impossible, as they have all been shot dead.
After the July 7th 2005 bombings on the London transport system, it was widely believed that the government and the metropolitan police could never have expected this sort of attack, and were caught on the hop. Villains were named and shot dead to protect us, with no more questions asked. Government figures appeared in poses of stern resolve, with patriotic words, reminding us all how our enemies hate our freedoms, and amid much hand wringing about how dangerous a free society is (and ironically, for an event in which no CCTV film was released) explain the need for more security measures.
But something doesn’t add up.
The same claim of surprise was made by George Bush after the 9/11 events, when in fact in the year running up to 9/11, more than three dozen hijacking drills were dealt with within moments by NORAD, and areas of the Pentagon had already been rebuilt specifically to survive a hit by an airliner. Meantime the FBI had been keeping close tabs on Mohammed Atta and his pals, knowing full well they wanted to learn to fly, but all lacked any skills and certainly all were highly focused on their own enjoyment of life – there is no evidence at all any of them were on the flights that day. The brash, cocksure, hard drinking, bragging misogynist Mohammed Atta spoke to his father the day after 9/11 – according to his father – in an uncharacteristic panic, realising he and his pals had all become massive, internationally-known, patsies overnight.
On the day of 9/11, a standard false-flag scenario was played out: a handful of drills of hijacked planes were being carried out at the same time, so that the real “hijackings” became lost in the shuffle. Panicky FAA staff were constantly asking, “wait, is this real, or a drill?” Meantime NORAD planes were diverted with endless drills up North: Vigilant Warrior, Vigilant Guardian, etc. Even when it became obvious that NORAD planes had to be summoned, they were summoned from as far away as possible and sent out in the wrong direction at half speed. It was a pathetic farce.
The Military District of Washington planned for a plane crash just like the Pentagon Attack in their “Mascal” planning excercise on October 24, 2000. (911 Review.Org)
The idea that our government is blissfully unaware of danger is as far from the truth as you can imagine, and the timeline given below shows exactly how the UK public were prepped. Not only were seeds planted in their mind, the public were virtually inundated with the idea that individuals who sought the end of our freedoms would sooner or later let off bombs on the underground, and that the only possible response was to shoot them dead, and, of course, keep up the lucrative wars abroad.
There are seven essential steps for any state to carry out a false flag attack:
- Continually stoke the public fear
- Run “dummy drills” as operatives prepare the actual attack. Anyone later identified by the public can claim “I was working on the drill.”
- Confiscate all CCTV after the event or disable institutional CCTV in advance. To this day, no film from any of dozens of CCTVs outside the Pentagon, on the neighboring hotels or gas stations, or on the motorway, have been released to prove a plane hit the Pentagon, bar three blurry frames showing what looks like a missile: the rest were destroyed or confiscated
- Get the state’s story out immediately via the mass media: people cling to a first impression so strongly that it is well nigh impossible to remove it later even if shown to be absurd
- Set up a good relation with the patsies in advance, making certain they are silenced immediately afterwards. It would be very inconvenient for them to confess: “we were paid to show up by a guy named Peter Power as part of his drill”.
- Deny any involvement. And keep on denying it, labelling accusers “lunatic conspiracy theorists”, until you practically come to believe it yourself.
- Stall an investigation for as long as possible, but if through public pressure it eventually has to take place, make sure it comes up with the fairytale in (4). Whether it involves a magic bullet (Warren Commision) or 47 story buildings which, not hit by any plane, collapse into a symmetrical heap (9/11 Commission), get the nonsense out and take as long as you like!
Leaving the patsy dead is the standard endgame: Lee Harvey Oswald was no more guilty of shooting JFK than you or I, with baffled witnesses even placing him in the basement cafeteria casually drinking a coke at the time of the shooting. In his own words, as the awful truth must have been sinking in: “I didn’t shoot anyone. I’m just a patsy.” Next thing you know, Jack Ruby bursts onto the scene and Oswald is no more. Ruby himself must have felt the same creeping sense of panic as it dawned on him that the government seemed disinterested in his story of nefarious figures in the shadows and that he, too, was expendable.
Think about it: it has never been explained how a non-entity such as Oswald suddenly appears on the “most wanted” list, with his image readily prepared, printed and circulated to police departments all over town before the FBI had even analysed the carefully-wrapped and hidden rifle for prints (something they never did). Media hysteria fills in all the blanks.
Likewise, before many people realised planes had struck the WTC buildings, a curious fellow named L Bremer was racing to the TV stations (instead of being in his office at the top of one of the WTC towers) to announce bin Laden did it and that the US needed to invade Iraq and Afghanistan with every force at their disposal. How does an insurance company employee know the unknowable – since every witness was now dead – about who ordered the strikes, even before flight manifests were released, before the dust had settled, and while all of New York was in a state of confusion and chaos?
L Bremer later morphed into manager of the Iraq occupation, in the process running the country into the ground, as pallet loads of hundred dollar bills flown in from the USA all vanished into his shady economy. For this catastrophic failure he was promoted to Bush’s senior finance officer: we wouldn’t want a disaffected, disillusioned canary singing to the public! And after all, there’s plenty of other people’s money to go around. Lately he’s taken up painting truly awful pictures, as his buddy Bush himself was to do later on. What a small world.
Formerly an insurance exec, the TV station needed L Bremer to gain immediate traction with the public, thus labelling him a “terrorism expert”.. something he certainly seems to be. The patsy Bin Laden stated he had nothing to do with the attacks, and died a year or two later from renal failure, but it was very useful to maintain the illusion of the bogeyman’s existence to justify the ongoing revenge: the military rape of completely innocent countries.
“I was told from the highest levels of the White House: ‘tell the people running Iraq if they don’t tell us about planning attacks on the US, we will bomb them into the stone age.’ The Iraqis were keen to co-operate and end sanctions, and even promised to build us a million cars a year. They knew nothing about any attacks, saying “the only thing we know is what you keep telling us!”
Susan Lindauer, CIA’s senior 2001 link to Iraq
Bin Laden’s “assassination” closed the fairytale and prevented any awkward questions. As for the evidence for this assassination, can you imagine a murder trial in which there is no body, no DNA, no photos, no fingerprints, no witnesses, and not even a crime scene? The only evidence we have is a photo of stuffed shirts in a White House briefing looking very surprised. Good enough for me!
Before the British 7/7 attacks, Prime Minister Blair was in something of a pickle. Three million people took to the streets to protest against going to war alongside Bush & Bremer’s US forces, and were duly ignored. It was later revealed via transcripts of conversations between Blair and Bush that Blair had agreed to go to war no matter what. Several years on, with costs rising, British military deaths piling up and no benefit anywhere in sight, support was thinner still. Something had to be done to whip up public support, but what?
What indeed. Remember there are 270 Underground stations, open for around 18 hours each, 365 days in the year. To carry out a dummy drill in a single station which suffers a simultaneous genuine attack would be odds of about 270 * 365 * 18 or more than 1.7 million to one in a single year. To get three simultaneously correct, assuming all would be at the same time, the odds against it grow to over 128 billion to one.
Even if you limit the stations to central London, during peak commutes only on working days, and it’s still a very very improbable series of events, coming in at 122 million to one against. And all these proposals ignore the fact that attacks could happen at any year, so multiply them all by six to include years since Bush & Bremer’s 9/11.
This is however exactly how false flags are carried out. In Obama’s Boston Bombing, runners were puzzled to hear that bomb drills would be taking place and that any explosions or police presence should be ignored as routine. Then, boom – and as the Fox News reporter, clearly not in on the scam, said from a helicopter above, “it could have been a gas explosion in the kitchens – all we know for sure is that all the injured were brought out from behind those glass walls.” Next came the media frenzy, the shooting of one of the patsies, and so on.
Naturally any operatives caught in the act could claim they were simply assisting the drill.
Now, to get around the ludicrous odds in London, it was necessary to emotionally stoke the public to half expect an event which was, in reality, impossible. Deeply in shock, the public quickly abandoned their critical thinking and were encouraged to join America’s absurd “war on terror”. Here’s how the inherently skeptical British public was carefully prepped for attacks orchestrated by ex-spook Peter Power and various henchmen within the security services:
In February 2004 the BBC broadcast a pilot episode of a new show called Crisis Command, where members of the public took on the role of crisis managers. The crises they dealt with included power surges, an attack on Waterloo underground station, and a plane crashing into the houses of parliament.
In March 2004, the train bombings in Madrid took place. In May 2004, an episode of the BBC show Panorama involved a panel of experts responding to a fictional terrorist attack: “this is the kind of terrorist attack the government repeatedly says is going to happen.”
The scenario involved bombings on three tube trains and then a bombing on a large road vehicle. One member of the expert panel was former counter terrorism police office turned management consultant Peter Power (senior Met Police 1971 – 1992, BET group securty director 1992-1994, Visor Consulting 1995 – present).
The show was criticised by the government for scaring the public. On the very same day in New York, the authorities carried out a terrorism training exercise called Operation Transit Safe that also featured attacks on train stations.
In July 2004, a training exercise in Birmingham called Operation Horizon was based around suicide terrorists spraying the public with a chemical poison. Again, it was criticised for whipping up fear.
In sept 2004 the BBC broadcast a film co-produced with HBO called Dirty War. The film began with a terrorism training exercise and depicted a muslim suicide attack using a radiological dirty bomb on Liverpool street station. It also showed a second pair of bombers being shot dead by police marksmen.
In December 2004 another episode of Spooks (the previous one was July 7th 2003) showing yet more attacks on train stations, a drill turned live, portrayed a muslim proxy bomb. An Iraqi woman is coerced into having a bomb surgically implanted in her body by a terrorist who plans to detonate the explsiove remotely. At the last minute the terrorist is shot dead by special forces.
Several years later it was reported that it was believed that Al Queda were using bombs installed in breast implants though this appears to be government fiction.
In April 2005, an international training drill called Atlantic Blue again featured attacks on london tube trains and buses. It involved the US who called it Top Off 3 and Canada who called it Triple Play. To heighten realism, the US created fake news broadcasts and a fake Pakistani-looking terrorist suspect. All of the usual elements are in place and now are starting to become embedded in the public’s mind.
In June 2005, another Spooks episode was filmed which portrayed an attack on a London tube station. Actress says: “the bomb this morning – was it the muslims?” The show also refers to Operation Gladio, the plan to stage deadly events to create support for crackdowns on specific racial groups.
June 12th 2005 the government ran yet another drill, a full scale exercise based around an emergency at a London tube station, this time at Tower Hill. In July 2005, one exercise by the metropolitan police called Hanover and one by Deutche Bank were both based on attacks on the London underground.
(You start to wonder if they aren’t hoping to give terrorists ideas by this constant repetition of how-to-plant-bombs, via TV shows. Perhaps it is useful to have these ideas circulating in society both to trigger attacks, and failing that, to prepare the public to accept the proposed patsies. If they seriously wanted to help racial relations, they would have long ago stopped their endless parade of fictional muslims attacking Londoners.)
On July 7th, the bombs coincided with an exercise in London and one in New York both based around multiple attacks on underground trains.
2 weeks after 7/7 another training exercise took place in which 4 men set off devices on 3 trains and a bus. This time they released the CCTV. Men put on trial but not charged with terror offences. Their defence was that they were staging a protest. July 2007: convicted of attempted murder.
In this way, reality and TV are blurred, but all are events designed to keep the public in a state of fear and suspense. When the brown stuff eventually hits the fan, people naturally fill in the blanks, as did one actor in a TV bombing: “was it the muslims?”
It was after this that police shot an innocent South American named Menendez who some say was simply running to catch a train.
Singapore later staged a huge exercise called Northstar 5, based on London’s 7/7 attacks. Train bombs were let off, actors fake injuries with moulage etc. The TV show Spooks in Sept 07 featured an unintentional suicide bomber, where police shoot and kill the detonator.
Oct 2008: another episode of Spooks on 4 dealt with suicide bombers in London. You get the idea by now.
There are plenty of detailed documentaries explaining the holes in the government’s official story, from underground trains in which the floors were blown upward – an impossibility for a backpack – to a Jaguar car believed by some to belong to Peter Power himself being shown on CCTV apparently co-ordinating the patsies in a prior dummy run and on 7/7 itself, to quickly changing claims of the explosives used (from military grade, as declared at the scene of the explosion, to amateur made, then finally to kitchen-made using a frying pan) and of course the suspicious way all the underground CCTV was “down” on 7/7, with the only photo available being an obviously photoshopped image of the patsies outside a train station – one unfortunately having the metal rail behind him running right through his body!
A consistent feature of false flags is a changing storyline – which is variously to the fog of war, updated intelligence, confusion and panic – but what is never explained is how each revision is presented as undisputed fact. When a fake bomb was let off in Boston, suspects were first a Saudi national, until he was linked to the Obamas, and then switched to patriot American groups, and finally the Tsarnaev brothers, who had been handled by the FBI all along.
If the 7/7 suspects were genuine bombers, any intelligent investigator would be desperate to interview them and unravel a wider chain of villains still on the loose. But with patsies this would be a disaster: they would claim no knowledge of any plot and immediately reveal who hired them in the first place. Often a fictional story is concocted that the patsies hurled bombs at their pursuers (Boston) or shot a policeman in their panic (Boston, Oswald) or even shot themselves (Sandy Hoax). In any event, they must always end up dead before a curious media interviews them.
A novel flourish was used in the Charlie Hebdo false flag shootings: the masked, highly efficient professional killers made a mistake: they left ID cards behind. Oh dear! This led the police to track down some very surprised individuals at the expected address and who made no attempt to flee; they were shot dead immediately. Nothing to see here, move along please!
Nor are false flags limited to Britain and America. Putin had Moscow apartment blocks blown up in September 1999, killing over 300 people, to justify a ruthless invasion of Chechnya, with its reserves of the purest form of oil available.
None of this stuff is new. Countries have been setting up disasters and blaming enemies for as long as we’ve had newspapers to report them to a gullible public. The Vietnam war was based on a false flag attack. A false flag was discussed to provoke war with Cuba in JFK’s day by murdering US citizens, though he refused to give permission. The Israelis, isolated in the middle east as the only permanent invading and occupying terrorist force, and certainly the only ones keeping vast numbers of prisoners in concentration camps, are such undisputed masters at this subterfuge that they come in for suspicion every time the government presents bloodied images in the press:
In 1954, Israeli agents working in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including a United States diplomatic facility, and left evidence behind implicating Egyptian Muslims as the culprits. The ruse would have worked, had not one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to capture and identify one of the bombers, which in turn led to the roundup of an Israeli spy ring.
Some of the spies were from Israel, while others were recruited from the local Jewish population. Israel responded to the scandal with claims in the media that there was no spy ring, that it was all a hoax perpetrated by “anti-Semites”. (Where have we heard this before?.. IC)
As the public trial progressed, it was evident that Israel had indeed been behind the bombing. Eventually, Israeli’s Defense Minister Pinhas Lavon was brought down by the scandal, although it appears that he was himself the victim of a frame-up by the real authors of the bombing project, code named “Operation Susannah.”
This is not the only example of a false flag designed to trick the United States into attacking Israel’s enemies. According to Victor Ostrovsky, a Mossad defector now living in Canada, Ronald Reagan was tricked into bombing Libya by means of a radio transmitter smuggled into Tripoli by the Mossad, which broadcast messages designed to fool the United States into thinking Libya was about to launch a massive terror attack on the west. On the basis of this fake evidence, the US bombed Libya, killing Khadaffi’s daughter.
More recently, Captain Ward Boston, who served as senior legal counsel for the Navy’s Court of Inquiry into the Israeli attack on USS Liberty, has come forward to report that the Court of Inquiry was ORDERED to conclude that the attack was an accident by President Lyndon Johnson. In hindsight, given the use of unmarked aircraft and boats by Israel during the actual attack, it appears that Israel intended to sink the US ship and frame Egypt for the attack, tricking the US into the war against Egypt.
So next time we hear a politician spouting nonsense about the enemies at the gate, let’s remember the words of a notable politician who best sums up the maxim: “History is written by the victors”.
