Some of these False Flag events demonstrate that a large number of government officials in multiple countries who share a belief or follow orders have cooperated in successfully secret conspiracies.

Thirty cases from the Korean War to Irag were examined by John Quigley in “The Ruses for War: American Interventionism Since World War II.”
1861 January 6 – New York Mayor Fernando Wood proposes secession from the united States to the City Council to transform New York City into a massive free-trade zone without protective Whig/Republican tariffs. Mercantilist are firmly in control of the Whig Party and its President, Lincoln. The southern states are angry with the federal government, not the northern states.
1861 January 9 – South Carolina supplies Ft. Sumpter with food and water on the condition that no Union naval vessels try to land at the fort. The South Carolina Militia fires on the USS Star of the West attempting to re-supply the Army of the federal garrison at Fort Sumter in Charleston harbor with two hundred fresh soldiers and additional armaments with which to enforce duties borne mostly by the southern States whose slave owners bought English products to repay the loan of slaves by the English East Indian Trading Company.
1861 January 21 – Mississippi Senator Jefferson Davis delivers his farewell address to the Senate: “I feel no hostility to you, Senators from the North. I am sure there is not one of you, whatever sharp discussion there may have been between us, to whom I cannot now say, in the presence of my God, I wish you well; and such, I am sure, is the feeling of the people whom I represent towards those whom you represent. I therefore feel that I but express their desire when I say I hope, and they hope, for peaceful relations with you, though we must part. They may be mutually beneficial to us in the future, as they have been in the past, if you so will it. The reverse may bring disaster on every portion of the country.”
1861 March 2 – As feared, President Buchanan signs the Morrill Tariff Act, placing tariff duties on imported raw materials, purchased primarily by the northern States of 5 to 10%, and duties on imported manufactured goods, purchased primarily by the southern States, of 25 to 30%. In a last ditch effort to restore the Union before relinquishing Congress to the Republicans the following December, the Democratic 37th Congress proposes a 13th amendment (the Corwin Amendment), which would require any future amendments on the subject of slavery be unanimous: “No amendment shall be made to the Constitution which will authorize or give to Congress the power to abolish or interfere, within any State, with the domestic institutions thereof, including that of persons held to labor or service by the laws [statutes] of said State.” It is hoped that the Confederate States will ratify this amendment thereby peacefully rejoin the Union, but at the price of the highest tariffs in U.S. history. The message was clear to the southern Senators as they exited the Senate.
1861 March 11 – The Confederate Constitutional Convention frames its version of the federal Constitution for the seceded States clarifying what they feel were the ambiguities and shortcomings of the Constitution for the united States:
- references to the “general welfare” from the federal Constitution, Preamble and Article I, Section 8, Clause 3 are eliminated;
- a line-item veto for the Confederate President is clarified;
- the Confederate Post Office must not be subsidized by taxes but operate on its own revenues;
- Confederate subsidies to facilitate commerce are prohibited;
- Confederate import tariffs designed to benefit domestic industries are prohibited;
- unrelated riders to Confederate appropriations legislation are prohibited.
1861 April 6 – False Flag 1: Secretary of State William H. Seward covertly assures Confederate Commissioner and former constitutionalist Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the federal United States John A. Campbell that Fort Sumter will be evacuated. Realizing that he has been lied to by the united States government, Democratic Governor Francis W. Pickens of the Independent Republic of South Carolina orders the Militia to fire on Fort Sumter before a flotilla sent by Republican President Lincoln arrives to enforce the Morrill Tariff Act. On 1861 July 3 President Lincoln confides to Republican Senator Orville H. Browning of Illinois, “[T]he plan succeeded. They [the rebels] attacked Sumter — it fell, and thus, did more service than it otherwise could.”
1846 May 11 – False Flag 2: After his offer to forgive $4.5 million owed to U.S. citizens in exchange for Mexico’s California and New Mexico territories was rejected, President James K. Polk orders U.S. troops into disputed territory on the Texas-Mexican border to provoke a Mexican response. In a message to Congress President James K. Polk falsely stated that Mexico had “invaded our territory and shed American blood upon the American soil” to initiate the Mexican-American War, and seize the territories by force.
1898 February 15 – False Flag 3: The explosion and sinking of the battleship U.S.S. Maine in Havana, Cuba harbor is used to initiate the Spanish-American War thanks in large part to the propaganda issued by the Hearst media. “We could not leave them to themselves — they were unfit for self-government — and they would soon have anarchy and misrule over there worse than Spain’s was … there was nothing left for us to do but to take them all, and to educate the Filipinos, and uplift and civilize and Christianize them.” – William McKinley – (1843-1901) 25th US President – Source: 1899, on the Filipinos, following the U.S. invasion of the Philippines in 1898. During the invasion and occupation, U.S. forces killed an estimated 200,000 Filipino civilians. Address to the Methodist Episcopal Church; cited in Olcott, The Life of William McKinley (1916), v. 2, p. 110; estimate of civilian casualties from U.S. Library of Congress, “The World of 1898: The Spanish-American War,” 1998.
1903 January 21 – Establish a standing army to fight foreign wars: The unconstitutional Militia Act of 1903 abolishes State funding of the Militias, which are replaced with the National Guard, and armed by the federal government, which reserves the right to recall its armaments at any time.
1913 February 25 – Enable politics of envy and demand for more government: Despite evidence to the contrary, Lame Duck Secretary of State Philander Chase Knox declares that the 16th Amendment (eliminates proportionality requirement for taxation) received the required ratification by three-fourths of the State legislatures, destroying the balance between taxation and representation in the House of Representatives. The only States to properly ratify the 16th amendment were North Dakota, Tennessee, Arizona and New Mexico.
1913 May 31 – Enable unlimited government spending: Despite evidence to the contrary, Secretary of State William Jennings Bryan declares that the 17th amendment (popular election of United States Senators) received the required ratification by three-fourths of the State legislatures. Although unanimous ratification is required on amendments affecting State suffrage in the Senate, as per Article V. This fraud ends the most important feature of federalism — the State’s check on the United States government — by concentrating unwarranted power in the Federal government in the District of Columbia.
1913 October 3 – Enable unlimited government spending: Unconstitutional Underwood Tariff Act of 1913 creates a Direct tax on personal incomes (profits) of United States citizens, under the guise of an Article I, Section 8, Clause 3 Indirect tax.
1913 December 23 – Enable unlimited government spending: President Wilson signs the unconstitutional Federal Reserve Act of 1913 with which Congress has shirked in its Article I, Section 8, Clause 5 requirement to regulate the value of money and unlawfully transfers the issuing of credit to an elitist monopoly: the Federal Reserve System.
1914 September 2 – False Flag 3 profit: Congress creates the Bureau of War Insurance to compensate shipping companies that have suffered losses during the Great War (World War I) – War Risk Insurance Act of 1914, 38 Public Statutes at Large 711, 712 (1914).
1913 March 26 – False Flag 4 preparation: By arming merchant ships and ording them to ram U-boats, Britain forced Geramany to stop allowing vessels to abandon ship, and sink them without warning. In the diplomatic wrangling over the German submarine campaign in 1915- 1916, the United States Government persistently failed to acknowledge the validity of the German point that it was not reasonable to expect a submarine to endanger herself by giving warning to a merchantman that was likely to be armed and under orders to ram any U-boat encountered.
1915 May 7 – False Flag 4: A submarine of the German Imperial Navy sinks the Royal Mail Ship (R.M.S.) Lusitania, killing 124 U.S. citizens, and motivating the hitherto isolationist Americans to war, despite the fact that its passengers were warned in U.S. newspaper ads bought by Germany not to board the ship. The American and British manifests of this “armed merchant cruiser” (Lloyd’s Registry) were falsified, claiming that it had no armaments, when in fact it was carrying tons of munitions. On 2/28/009, a History Channel ocean treasure hunter episode revealed the stacks of the Lusitania were repainted to match her sister ship, the Mauretania an armed merchant vessel, and the white letters on the hull spelling “Lusitania” were painted black to match the hull. The Germans bought ads warning the passengers not to sail on the Lusitania, because the Germans knew it was caring ammunition bound for England, and threatened to sink it. What puzzled historians is the Germans, knowing that the sinking of the Lusitania would likely bring the U.S. into the war against them, still sank the ship. Now we know. The German submarine captain mistook the Lusitania for the Mauretania as intended by President Wilson to motivate Americans to war.
1917 June 4 – False Flag 4 result: Congress declares war on Germany “Whereas the Imperial German Government have committed repeated acts of war against the … United States of American … a state of war exists between the United States and the Imperial German government.” The antagonists were prepared to renegotiate boundaries as they had done to end so many of their past European wars, but U.S. entry into the war against Germany extended WW I and its devastation, and resulted in the Versailles Treaty, which economically suffocated Germany, and paved the way for Hitler and WW II.
1917 June 21 – Enable unlimited government spending: While the Army and Navy of the United States are in France “making the world safe for democracy,” Congress passes the unconstitutional Federal Reserve Act of 1917, requiring that all commercial banks in the nation deposit their gold (lawful Money) with the Federal Reserve System (central bank).
1927 February 27 – Enable unlimited government spending: Congress passes the Federal Reserve Act of 1927, indefinitely extending the charter of the Federal Reserve System.
1920s – Enable Roaring 20s: With easy credit the Federal Reserve floods the economy with so much unneeded money that much of it is invested in the stock market or used to expand farms and other speculative acts.
1929 – Cause Recession: The Federal Reserve Board of Directors suddenly reduces credit to end the speculation, causing investors, farmers and others to withdraw their savings from banks that were authorized to loan more than they had (fractional reserve banking), so the banks ran out of money and many lost everything.
1930 June 16 – Cause Depression: With the nation’s economy barely in recovery, President Hoover signs the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act, raising tariffs 46%. This provoked a worldwide trade war resulting in an almost complete cessation in foreign trade, thus turning the Panic of 1929 into the worldwide Great Depression.
1933 March 6 – Defraud Americans and extend depression: Franklin Roosevelt issues Proclamation 2039 (Bank Holiday) under the authority of the Trading with the Enemy Act of 1917, as amended–“[T]he President … may prohibit … by means of licenses, or otherwise … the export [or] hoarding of gold or silver [C]oin.” — all (commercial) banks are to suspend business operations for three business days, and cease redeeming legal tender Federal Reserve Notes (Bills of Credit) for gold Coin (lawful Money). The Trading with the Enemy Act was thought to have been automatically repealed with the ratification of the 1921 peace treaty with Germany, but Roosevelt found an appointee-candidate who rendered a legal opinion that the act might still be used. Every act of FDR hobbled free market recovery, extended the depression, increased the debt, and eventually bankrupted the U.S. FDR then used trade restrictions to goad Japan into attacking Pearl Harbor (False Flag 5), so he could incite Americans to enter WW II, and extend his presidency as a “war president”.
1940 October 7 – False Flag 5 preparation: Lieutenant commander Arthur H. McCollum, head of the naval intelligence Far East desk, responds to the inquiry of Franklin Roosevelt, Esq. on how to provoke war with the empire of Japan:
- Make an arrangement with Britain for the use of British bases in the Pacific, particularly Singapore.
- Make an arrangement with Holland [Nederland] for the use of base facilities and acquisition of supplies in the Dutch East Indies [now Indonesia].
- Give all possible aid to the Chinese government of Chaing Kai-shek.
- Send two divisions of submarines to the Orient.
- Keep the main strength of the US [f]leet, now in the Pacific, in the vicinity of the Hawaiian Islands.
- Insist that the Dutch refuse to grant Japanese demands for undue economic concessions, particularly oil.
- Completely embargo all trade with Japan in collaboration with a similar embargo imposed by the British Empire.
1940 October 8 – False Flag 5 preparation: Commander-in-chief the Navy, Vice-admiral James O. Richardson warns Franklin Roosevelt that he is placing the pacific fleet in unnecessary danger: “[S]enior officers of the [n]avy do not have the trust and confidence in the civilian leadership of this country [nation] that is essential for the successful prosecution of a war in the Pacific.” Four months later Richardson was relieved of his command (CINCUS) when it was split into the pacific and Atlantic fleets. CINCPACFLEET had been initially offered to rear admiral (two stars) Chester Nimitz — bypassing several vice admirals (three stars) with greater standing — who turned it down, citing a “lack of seniority.” The post was then given to another junior admiral, rear admiral Husband E. Kimmel, who is immediately promoted to admiral (four stars). Speculation is that the real reason Nimitz turned down the job is that he believed the Japanese would attack Hawaii, and the commander of CINCPACFLEET would be blamed for being ill prepared. One month after the Japanese did attack, Kimmel was demoted and relieved of his command, and Nimitz named to replace him.
1941 January 6 – False Flag 5 preparation: Acting Japanese Consul-General for Honolulu, Hawaii, Otojiro Okuda transmits to the Japanese Foreign Ministry a coded response of an inquiry into the number of warships in Pearl Harbor. Although the report is decoded for the White House, Franklin Roosevelt does not inform admiral Kimmel, commander-in-chief of the pacific fleet or admiral Harold “Betty” Stark, chief of naval operations. Throughout the rest of the year, the same “J” code is used to relay reports to the Foreign Ministry of increasing sensitivity, involving bombing approaches to anchored vessels and recommendations for a sneak attack. Still Kimmel and Stark were never notified.
1941 January 27 – False Flag 5 preparation: Ambassador to the Empire of Japan, Joseph Grew sends a message to the Department of State, “The Peruvian Minister has informed a member of my staff that he has heard from many sources, including a Japanese source, that in the event of trouble breaking out between the United States and Japan, the Japanese intended to make a surprise attack against Pearl Harbor with all their strength.”
1941 February 10 – False Flag 5 preparation: Franklin Roosevelt, orders Action D, directing the navy of the United States to conduct “Pop-up” cruises off the coast of Japan as a provocation to war. “I just want them to keep popping up here and there and keep the Japs [sic] guessing. I don’t mind losing one or two cruisers. But I don’t want to lose five or six.”
1941 June 23 – False Flag 5 preparation: The day after fascist Germany invaded the communist Soviet Union, Special Advisor to the President, Harold Ickes, writes a memo to Franklin Roosevelt: “There might develop from the embargoing of oil to Japan such a situation as would make it not only possible but easy to get into this war in an effective way. And if we should thus indirectly be brought in, we would avoid the criticism that we had gone in as an ally of communistic Russia.”
1941 July 5 – False Flag 5 preparation: Franklin Roosevelt orders the Panama Canal closed to the civilian Merchant Marine Fleet of the empire of Japan, forcing Japanese cargo carriers to make a seven-thousand mile detour around South America. This places Japanese commerce at a competitive disadvantage and forces Japan to use more of its limited petroleum.
1941 July 19 – False Flag 5 preparation: Director of the war plans division of the navy department, Rear Admiral Richmond K. Turner, submits a confidential report to chief of naval operations, Admiral Harold “Betty” Stark entitled “The Possible Effects of an Embargo” in which he stated, “An embargo would probably result in a fairly early attack by Japan on Malaya and the Netherlands East Indies, and possibly would involve the United States in early war in the Pacific.” He recommended that “trade with Japan not be embargoed at this time.”
1941 July 24 – False Flag 5 preparation: Franklin Roosevelt issues the empire of Japan an ultimatum to leave Vietnam (French Indochina).
1941 July 26 – False Flag 5 preparation: Franklin Roosevelt issues Executive Order 8832 under the authority of the Trading with the Enemy Act of 1917 that freezes all Japanese assets United States, which is an act of war. Since the United States had been the primary source of petroleum to the Empire of Japan, it is expected that the Japanese will run out of this vital fuel by 1943. This forces Japan to search for an alternate source of fossil fuel in the Dutch East Indies, and to protect that supply preparations must be made for war against the United States.
1941 August 28 – False Flag 5 preparation: Franklin Roosevelt rejects a proposal from Prime Minister Prince Fumimaro Konoye of the Empire of Japan to meet face to face, and attempt to peacefully resolve their differences.
1941 September 4 – False Flag 5: The ostensibly neutral USS Greer stalks the a belligerent German U-boat for three hours while radioing its position to the British Royal Navy. When it become apparent the Royal Navy would not arrive in time, the Greer shells the submarine — an act of war. Franklin Roosevelt reports to the nation that the submarine fired first in an unprovoked attack. Lieutenant Commander Station HYPO, Pearl Harbor, Joseph John Rochefort decodes a message indicating that three days previous the civilian Merchant Marine Fleet of the Empire of Japan has left China and been militarized. This report is officially ignored by Franklin Roosevelt.
1941 October 10 – False Flag 5 preparation: President Roosevelt in a message to Congress urges the repeal of Section 6 of the Neutrality Act which would allow the arming of U.S. merchant ships against “the modern pirates of the sea”, the U-boats.
1941 October 16 – False Flag 5 preparation: After a meeting with Franklin Roosevelt, Secretary of war, Henry Stimson writes in his diary, “We face the delicate question of the diplomatic fencing to be done so as to be sure Japan is put into the wrong and makes the first bad move — overt move.”
1941 October 18 –False Flag 5 preparation: Secretary of the interior, Harold Ickes: “For a long time I have believed that our best entrance into the war would be by way of Japan. … To insure a successful Japanese attack — one that would enrage America into joining the war — it is vital to keep Kimmel and General Short out of the intelligence loop.”
1941 November 5 – False Flag 5 preparation: United States military intelligence code breakers intercept a communication to the Japanese Embassy in the District of Columbia that November 25th is to be the deadline for reaching a peaceful settlement to the dispute with the U.S. over the Second Sino-Japanese War and the Japanese occupation of French Indochina. All communications to the Japanese embassy were decoded and translated within 24 hours of their being intercepted by military and naval intelligence.
1941 November 11 – False Flag 5 preparation: United States military intelligence code breakers intercept a communication to the Japanese Embassy in the District of Columbia stating that “The situation is nearing a climax, and the time is getting short.”
1941 November 14 – False Flag 5 preparation: In reply to commander-in-chief of the pacific fleet, Husband E, Kimmel’s inquiry as to what preparations he is to make if the Empire of Japan attacks the United Kingdom’s colonies in East Asia, chief of naval operations admiral Harold “Betty” Stark finally replies, “Just what we will do in the Far East remains to be seen.”
1941 November 15 – False Flag 5 preparation: In a confidential press briefing with the New York Times, New York Herald-Tribune, Time, Newsweek, the Associated Press, United Press International and International News Service, Army Chief of staff General George C. Marshall says, “The United States is on the brink of war with the Japanese …. We know what they know and they don’t know we know it.” Marshall predicts that war will break out in “the first ten days of December.” Although Marshall shared what he knew with the national media, commander-in-chief of the pacific fleet, admiral Husband E. Kimmel and commander of the army in Hawaii, lieutenant general Walter Short did not know what Marshall knew. And Marshall knew that they did not know.
1941 November 16 – False Flag 5 preparation: The USS Kearney is sunk by a German U-boat. Georgia Representative Edward E. Cox, says of the incident, “[I]t is probably the incident for which we have been waiting.” John T. Flynn, Chairman of the New York Chapter of the America First Committee, expresses outrage at the temerity of the actions of Franklin Roosevelt: “Is anyone surprised that an American ship has been fired on by a German U-boat? Do Americans think that our war vessels can hunt the ships of any nation and escape attack? American war vessels, under orders from the war-like [secretary of the navy, Frank] Knox, are hunting down German submarines in the combat waters off Iceland without authority of Congress or the American people. … They [Roosevelt and Knox] are praying for the sinking of American vessels with the American [United States] flag on them in order to arouse the American people to a war fever. The American people must realize what is being done — that they are the victims of a conspiracy to hurry them into this war.
1941 November 16 – False Flag 5 preparation: United States military intelligence code breakers intercept a communication to the Japanese Embassy in the District of Columbia stating that “The deadline absolutely cannot be changed,” the dispatch said. “After that, things are automatically going to happen.”
1941 November 23 – False Flag 5 preparation: Commander-in-chief of the pacific fleet Admiral Husband E, Kimmel orders his fleet to conduct round the clock patrols of the waters north of Hawaii, judging that would be the most likely avenue of approach were the Empire of Japan to attack the United States. The next day Franklin Roosevelt issues the “Vacant Sea” order, ordering Kimmel to recall his ships from the North Pacific and search only to the south. Two weeks later the Japanese attack came from the very area Kimmel had attempted to monitor. The “Vacant Sea” order was issued about one hour after the Pearl Harbor strike force commanded by Admiral Chuichi Nagumo left port.
1941 November 25 – False Flag 5 preparation: Franklin Roosevelt announces at a Cabinet meeting that the United States would be at war in the with the Empire of Japan in a few days. Lieutenant Commander Station HYPO, Pearl Harbor, Joseph John Rochefort informs commander-in-chief of the pacific fleet, admiral Husband E. Kimmel that he has confirmed that a fleet of submarines had left the Empire of Japan and is heading directly towards Hawaiian waters. Kimmel, who understands the conventional naval wisdom: “If you detect submarines, then look for carriers,” realizes his ability to react is seriously handicapped by the “Vacant Sea” order of Franklin Roosevelt. The Signal Intelligence Service intercepts a coded transmission from the Japanese Foreign Ministry to their Embassy in the District of Columbia, extending the deadline for the commencement of hostilities from November 25 to November 29, when “things are automatically going to happen.”
1941 November 26 – False Flag 5 preparation: Navy code breaker intercept a communication from Admiral Isoruko Yamamoto to the Japanese First Air Fleet, indicating that Pearl Harbor had been targeted: “The task force, keeping its movement strictly secret and maintaining close guard against submarines and aircraft, shall advance into Hawaiian waters, and upon the very opening of hostilities shall attack the main force of the United States fleet and deal it a mortal blow. The first air raid is planned for the dawn of x-day. Exact date to be given by later order.” Secretary of state Cordell Hull meets secretly with freelance newspaper writer Joseph Leib, and shows Leib several intercepts of Japanese intelligence messages concerning Pearl Harbor, indicating the planned attack, and that President Franklin Roosevelt plans to let it happen. Hull asks Leib to corroborate the story — keeping his name out of it — but yet hoping to somehow prevent the “sneak attack.” Leib was not able to find a single news bureau that would run the story, but was able to run it on the foreign cable service of the United Press, where only one newspaper published any portion of it.
1941 November 28 – False Flag 5 preparation: Chief of naval operations, Admiral Harold “Betty” Stark orders commander-in-chief of the pacific fleet admiral Husband E. Kimmel to maintain a defensive posture. “Negotiations with Japan appear to be terminated. … the United States desires that Japan commit the first overt act.” The day before army chief of staff general George C. Marshal sent a similar message to commander of the Army in Hawaii, lieutenant general Walter Short
1941 November 29 – False Flag 5 preparation: The Signal Intelligence Service intercepts a communication to the Japanese Embassy in the District of Columbia stating that the decision to go to war has been made but “do not … give the impression that negotiations are broken off.”
1941 December 6 – False Flag 5 preparation: At 3:00 PM Eastern Standard Time, officer-in-charge of Station US of the navy, commander Laurence Safford begins decoding a 14-part message, transmitted from the Japanese Foreign Ministry to their embassy in the District of Columbia. At 9:30 that night, Safford presents them to Franklin Roosevelt, who upon reading the passage that states, “The Japanese government cannot tolerate the perpetuation of such a situation [United States support of China in the Second Sino-Japanese War] since it directly runs counter to Japan’s fundamental policy to enable all nations to each enjoy its proper place in the world,” says, “This means war.” When a presidential advisor suggests a preemptive strike, Roosevelt immediately dismisses it saying, “No we can’t do that. We are democracy and a peaceful people. … But we have a good record.”
1941 December 7 – False Flag 5: Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Harold “Betty” Stark arrives at his office at 9:25 AM Eastern Standard Time, where he is shown the last part of the intercepted, fourteen-part message from the Japanese Foreign Ministry to the Japanese Embassy. The message states that the “message” (Japanese declaration of war against the United States) is to be delivered to Cordell Hull, secretary of state by 1:00 PM EST (8:00 AM Hawaii time). Afterward, all cryptographic materials in the embassy were to be destroyed. At the suggestion of a junior officer that Stark alert commander in chief of the pacific fleet, Vice Admiral Husband E. Kimmel that this probably means war is imminent, Stark does nothing. Three and a half-hours later, the Axis war (World War II) becomes a world war with the Japanese attack upon the British colony of Singapore. Pearl Harbor is also attacked. 15% of 101 warships are either temporarily or permanently disabled. 96 army planes and 92 navy and marine corps planes are lost. In addition the material damage, there are 2,897 killed (similar to 9/11), 879 wounded, and 26 missing. In the next few days, Japanese forces seize 1,951 prisoners of war — many of whom died in captivity — on the Federal enclaves of the Guam and Wake islands. Years later, Stark said that his actions on this date had been determined by “higher authority” — Secretary of War, Frank Knox, and Franklin Roosevelt.
1941 December 8 – False Flag 5 continued: President Franklin Roosevelt condemns the “deliberate [and] unprovoked attack … on Pearl Harbor” in his war message to the 14th Congress. Two days later, congress declares war on Japan. Also on the day after naval forces of the Empire of Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, the coast guard ship Leonard Wood is attacked seven thousand miles away from U.S. territorial waters in the British colony of Singapore, further demonstrating the unlawful actions of the Roosevelt administration in its efforts to goad Japan to attack.
1941 December 11 – False Flag 5 result: Dictator of Germany, Adolf Hitler declares war on the United States. In his war message to the Reichstag, Hitler blames Franklin Roosevelt for “incit[ing the] war, then falsif[ying] the causes”. “Roosevelt has been guilty of … [i]llegal seizure of ships and other property of German … nationals … and looting of those being … interned. Roosevelt … ordered the American Navy to attack everywhere ships under German … flags, and to sink them. …” Hitler goes on to accuse Roosevelt of making “profits out of inflation,” and creating the crises to cover his own failures for “not succeed[ing] in bringing about even the slightest improvement in his own country [nation]. …” At the end of 1941 unemployment in the United States is at 5.6 million, 9.9% of the national labor force; virtually unchanged from the end of 1930 when it stood at 4.3 million and 8.7%. Director of Communications, Rear admiral Leigh Noyes orders all existing diplomatic naval documents relating to the attack on Pearl Harbor be sealed for the next 54-years. Noyes also gives the order to “Destroy all notes or anything in writing.”
1942 March 27 – Enable extortion of businesses by congressmen and unlimited government spending: While the army and navy of the United States are in Asia, Europe and the Pacific “for a world in which this [n]ation … will be safe for our children,” congress passes the War Powers Act of 1942, giving the Interstate Commerce Commission the power to suspend contracts, regulations or licenses; and permitting the Federal Reserve System to directly purchase United States Treasury obligations, making the FRS a printing press to finance huge deficits of the Federal government. As a result of this act, the annual budget deficit for 1943 was nearly half the entire Gross National Product.
1942 February 1 – Respect for Constitution – Regarding proposed internment of United States citizens of Japanese ancestry, Assistant Secretary of War, John J. McCloy tells attorney general, Francis Biddle, “[T]he constitution is just a scrap of paper to me.”
1942 October 21 – Enable unlimited government spending: The 13th congress passes the Internal Revenue Act of 1942, asking United States citizens to volunteer for the “Victory Tax,” a temporary, three-percent payroll-income tax withholding, which “shall not apply with respect to any taxable year commencing after the cessation of hostilities in the present war”; and transforming the Tax Board of Appeals into the United States Tax Court — another administrative law court without Trial by Jury — with the additional powers of reviewing its own decisions on appeal. Although the Axis War (World War II) ended less than three years later with the surrender of the Empire of Japan, the temporary “Victory Tax” remains in effect — more than half a century later.
- Like the 9/11 Commission, the Roberts Commission covered up the causes for the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
- The culpable supreme court of the United States ruled that extra-constitutional Executive Agreements negotiated with foreign nations by the President in secret have the same force as ratified treaties.
- The President ordered over 100,000 United States citizens into concentration camps.
- Periodical publications disagreeing with the government were deemed seditious, and denied mailing privileges.
- Wage and price controls were first enacted.
- Federal income tax withholding started.
- The supreme court determined that the power of congress to regulate interstate commerce extended to production, and consumption by the same person.
- The President seized control of nearly all goods and services in the nation.
- The President required the Social Security Number to be used for identification purposes.
1960-2001 – The next five U.S. False Flag Episodes
and Other Ignoble Acts
1960 – The World Trade Center (WTC) was initiated by a Lower Manhattan Association created and chaired by David Rockefeller, who had the original idea of building the Center with strong backing from the then New York governor, his brother, Nelson Rockefeller.
1962 March 13 – Almost False Flag 6: “Operation Northwoods, which had the written approval of the Chairman and every member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called for innocent people to be shot on American streets; for boats carrying refugees fleeing Cuba to be sunk on the high seas; for a wave of violent terrorism to be launched in Washington, D.C., Miami, and elsewhere. People would be framed for bombings they did not commit; planes would be hijacked. Using phony evidence, all of it would be blamed on Castro, thus giving [Chief of Staff] Lemnitzer and his cabal the excuse, as well as the public and international backing, they needed to launch their war involved the bombing of Florida facilities, simulated or real state-sponsored acts of terrorism (such as hijacked planes) on U.S. and Cuban soil to incite Americans to invade Cuba. The main proposal was presented in a document entitled “Justification for US Military Intervention in Cuba (TS)” is a collection of draft memoranda written by the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) representative to the Caribbean Survey Group. (The parenthetical “TS” in the title of the document is an acronym for “Top Secret.”) The document was presented by the Joint Chiefs of Staff to Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara on March 13 with one paragraph approved, as a preliminary submission for planning purposes. The approved paragraph described destroying an unmanned drone masquerading as a commercial aircraft supposedly full of “college students off on a holiday”. These potential false flag were avoided by removing their Pentagon advocates, but Operation Northwoods demonstrates that the federal government is happy to delude We the People to advance their objectives.
1966 August 5 –The World Trade Center (WTC)

Note the conventional construction of the massive steel core. “Essentially, each tower was a box within a box, joined by horizontal trusses at each floor. The outer box, measuring 208 feet by 208 feet (63×63 m), was made up of 14-inch (36-cm) wide steel columns, 59 per building face, spaced just over 3 feet (1 m) apart. …. The columns were covered with aluminum, giving the towers a distinctive silver color. The inner box at the core of each tower measured about 135 feet by 85 feet (41×26 m). Its 47 heavy steel columns surrounded a large open area housing elevators, stairwells and restrooms.”
“Anticipating a ban (on the use of asbestos in construction in NY), the builders stopped using the materials by the time they reached the 40th floor of the north tower, the first one to go up” – New York Times on September 18, 2001. The WTC was in economic trouble before it was completed.
1964 August 4 – False Flag 6: U.S. ships are allegedly attacked by North Vietnamese in the Gulf of Tonkin, “which handed President Johnson the carte blanc charter he wanted for future intervention in Southeast Asia.”
1964 August 7 – False Flag 6 result: The 25th Congress passes House Joint Resolution 1145 (the Gulf of Tonkin) authorizing the president to use “all necessary measures [to] … prevent further aggression.” The resolution sets no limits on what Commander-in-Chief Lyndon Johnson may do, or where, or how long force may be used.
1964 August 10 – False Flag 6 result: President Lyndon Johnson signs Resolution 1145, “To any in southeast Asia who ask our help in defending their freedom, we shall give it. … This resolution stands squarely within the four corners of the Constitution of the United States. It is clearly consistent with the principles and purposes of the Charter of the United Nations. And millions of dead later… In fact Ho Chi Minh had asked the U.S. for help in dislodging the French occupation of his country, but since the U.S. was courting the French to join NATO, we took the side of the French colonialists, and gave them arms and equipment to subdue the Vietnamese in French Indochina. The Soviets seized the opportunity to use the Vietnam war for independence as a proxy in the cold war. Another war we had no business being in, since we had lost thousands of people liberating France form the Nazis. Same principle, different situation.
1965 – Invasion: “This country is not pro-American. It is United States property.” – Juan Bosch – President of the Dominican Republic. In 1965, the U.S. invaded the Dominican Republic to prevent the displacement of Donald Reid Cabral by Bosch’s constitutionally-elected government. New York Times, 6 June 1967.
1967 June 8 – Navy intelligence ship USS Liberty attacked.
1975 February 13 – World Trade Center North Tower (WTC 1) suffers a fire on the 11th floor. The fire is so intense that it causes the 11th floor east side windows to break, indicating temperature greater than 1,292°F or 700°C. It is not immediately known that the fire was spreading vertically from floor to floor through 12×18″ telephone cable openings in the floor slab. 125 firemen are involved, and 28 sustain injuries from the intense heat and smoke before the fire was extinguished three hours later. There was no sprinkler system, because the towers are owned and operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which is not subject to local safety codes. No serious structural damage was caused by this fire. No trusses needed to be replaced. The holes are plugged and sprinklers are installed in all WTC buildings by 2001.
1977 – WTC 1 and 2 galvanic corrosion problems are discovered. A solution is sought for 10 years.
1980 November – Larry Silverstein wins a bid to lease and develop the last undeveloped parcel from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to build 47-story 7 World Trade Center (WTC 7).
1982 – … the Israelis gave the Kalashnikovs they had captured from Palestinians to the CIA, which shipped them via Pakistan to the Mujahideen in Afghanistan to fight the Russians. Osama bin Laden’s first AK was a Palestinian gun supplied by the Israelis and given to him by the Americans.
1983 October 25 – Americans prepared for impromptu invasions of foreign nations: Granada invaded by U.S. In his memoir “Man of the House,” former Speaker Tip O’Neil described his response to being informed about the 1983 Granada invasion: “The invasion was already under way, so even if we opposed it, there was nothing any of us could do. I had some serious reservations, and I’m sure my Democratic colleagues did as well, but I’d be damned if I was going to voice any criticism while our boys were out there.” O’Neil thought the invasion nothing more that a cover for the Reagan Administration’s blunder in Lebanon, where a few days before a suicide bomber had killed 248 US Marines who were on a “peacekeeping mission” in Beirut. “Over a hundred American troops were killed or wounded in [the Granada invasion] … And as far as I can see, it was all because the White House wanted the country to forget about the tragedy in Beirut.
1987 May 9 or June 9 – WTC 1 and 2 exterior cast aluminum WTC panels had been directly connected to the steel superstructure of the building, thus causing galvanic corrosion problems that are exposed to T. S. Gordon, and both Mayor Giuiliani’s Office and the New York Port Authority allegedly received an order for the buildings to be completely dismantled by 2007 before the aluminum exterior starts falling from the buildings and the floors they support collapse.
1989 – Plans were made to erect scaffolding and disassemble the WTC towers and rebuild them. Furthermore, there were air conditioning and other problems. The project architect said that the $5.6 billion “take it down, rebuild it” project (“the Bridgeways Project“) was canceled, and in about “10-12 years” they would “blow it up and start over”.
“The building was bid at $750.M, and cost $1.2B to build. It was worth about $4. to $5.B at its peak, but would have cost nearly $15.B to un-build it in 2010 dollars, or as it neared its 1/2 ‘safe’ life. Obviously, it was Imploded, because there was never going to be a ‘break-even’ point for either, the current, or future owners!””The owners were fully aware of the problem and had been given the ultimatum that they could not ‘implode’ the buildings. They received the report stating that: Decommissioning was required by the EPA by no later than 2007, at a projected cost of $20.B.”
1989 December – False Flag 7: Panama invaded to depose general and de facto Panamanian military leader Manuel Noriega in December 1989, during the administration of U.S. President George H. W. Bush. This action was preceded by more than a year of diplomatic tension between the United States and Panama, the highlights of which were specific allegations by the United States that Noriega was complicit with money launderers and drug traffickers and a nullified national election in 1989, but the CIA paid $650,000 to Manuel Noriega on January 19, 1991. Others believe that Noriega displeased his partners in crime, the Bush Family and the CIA by pocketing more than his share of drug profits. President George H. W. Bush specially assisted by his Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney and then Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Staff Colin Powell, ordered U.S. troops in Panama to cause an incident that would justify the invasion. The Panamanian Defense Force ignored the provocations until four Marines dressed in civilian clothes ran a road block. The Panamanians shot at the vehicle. One of the Marines died, providing the excuse used to invade Panama … a relatively small price to pay for motivating Americans to endorse an invasion planned long before. After sufficient play in the American press, the invasion was launched without the approval of Congress (History Channel 5:00 PM 9/25/07).
1990 July 25 – False Flag 8: U.S. tacitly encourages Hussein to punish Kuwait for diagonal-drilling into its oil fields (line of burning wells along border), and invents incubator baby murders to motivate Americans to invade Kuwait, while the U.S. anticipates invasion with war games. General Norman Schwarzkopf, from an interview in the film Hidden Wars of Desert Storm, describing the “wargame” that was underway when Iraq invaded Kuwait: “We went ahead and did an exercise, what’s called a command post exercise, which is what Internal Look was to test our ability to deal with this particular scenario … Just so happened we were in the middle of conducting the Internal Look command post exercise at the same time the crisis developed in the gulf.”
1991 January 15 – Operation Desert Storm begins, and ends only 44 days later on March 1, 1991.
1991 – The White House Is Protected From Airplane Attack During Gulf War, but not during 9/11.
1991 to 2001 – False Flag 11 preparation: NORAD Exercise Simulates Crash into Famous US Building.
1992 March 8 – False Flag 11 preparation: Context of raw US World Dominance Plan authored by Paul Wolfowitz and I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby is leaked to the media.
1993 February to 1994 May – False Flag 11 preparation – US Military Head and GAO Recommend Reducing Units Dedicated to Continental Air Defense.
1993 February 26 – False Flag 9: A Truck bomb is detonated in the parking garage of WTC using explosives provided by the FBI that were not exchanged for inert material “as planned”. Fails to have desired effect, because the building survives and does not topple into other buildings.
1993 – False Flag 11 preparation – Burns and Roe Securacom obtained contracts among many other contractors for related security upgrades as a consequence of the first attack on the WTC. As part of a new management team, including Wirt Walker, President George W. Bush’s cousin, who was hired when Securacom separated from Burns and Roe, Marvin P. Bush, younger brother of the US President George W. Bush and Walker’s cousin joined Securacom’s board of directors. Its CEO, Barry McDaniel, said the company had a ‘completion contract’ to handle some of the security at the World Trade Center ‘up to the day the buildings fell down.’ R. Michael Lagow, was vice president of Securacom, and the related company, Stratesec, in 1993. Stratesec is backed by a Kuwaiti-American investment firm. He lists clients on his resume such as World Trade Center, Amtrak, and TVA Nuclear Power facilities. He joined Securacom in August of 1993, and founded the Dallas, Texas offices of Securacom in Bush territory.
1995 March – Inaugural memorandum of understanding between the governments of Turkmenistan and Pakistan for a Trans-Afghanistan Pipeline for natural gas.
1995 April 19 – False Flag 10: The Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, a U.S. government office complex in downtown Oklahoma City, Oklahoma is partially distroyed. The attack claimes 168 lives and leaves over 800 injured. The building is imploded and its material burried on a military reservation before any independent investigation can be conducted. Blue 50-gallon drums placed next to structural columns are ignored. The official story does not match the evidence. Terry Nichols has alleged a high-ranking FBI official was directing Timothy McVeigh in the plot to blow up a government building.
1995 July 5 to 1997 May – Hamas Leader Held in the US, Then Let Go
1995 September to October – UNOCAL Obtains Turkmenistan Pipeline Deal: Oil company UNOCAL signs an $8 billion deal with Turkmenistan to construct two pipelines (one for oil, one for gas), as part of a larger plan for two pipelines intended to transport oil and gas from Turkmenistan through Afghanistan and into Pakistan. Before proceeding further, however, UNOCAL needs to execute agreements with Pakistan and Afghanistan; Pakistan and Ahmed Shah Massoud’s government in Afghanistan, however, have already signed a pipeline deal with an Argentinean company. Henry Kissinger, hired as speaker for a special dinner in New York to announce the Turkmenistan pipeline deal, says the UNOCAL plan represents a “triumph of hope over experience.” UNOCAL will later open an office in Kabul, weeks after the Taliban capture of the capital in late 1996 and will interact with the Taliban, seeking support for its pipeline until at least December 1997. [Coll, 2004, pp. 301-13, 329, 338, 364-66]
1996 to early 1997 – Probe of Suspicious Company with Saudi Ties Is Stalled
1996 to 2001 – False Flag 11 preparation – WTC wired for demolition: Securacom got a $8.3 million contract to install a new WTC security system from 1996 to 2000 (extended through 2001). As early as 1993 it may have been decided that the corrosion and asbestos problems of the WTC towers could not be cost-effectively repaired, and that the buildings must be demolished, so Securacom may have been contracted to wire the buildings for demolition in lieu of or in addition to security in order to safely destroy buildings that were not economically viable without significantly damaging adjacent buildings.
1996 March 8 to April – US Asks Sudan for Its Files on Al-Qaeda, Then Declines to Accept Them
1996 May – False Flag 11 preparation: Saudis and Al-Qaeda Allegedly Strike a Secret Deal: French intelligence secretly monitors a meeting of Saudi billionaires at the Hotel Royale Monceau in Paris this month with the financial representative of al-Qaeda. “The Saudis, including a key Saudi prince joined by Muslim and non-Muslim gun traffickers, [meet] to determine who would pay how much to Osama. This [is] not so much an act of support but of protection&emdash;a payoff to keep the mad bomber away from Saudi Arabia.” [Palast, 2002, pp. 100] Participants also agree that bin Laden should be rewarded for promoting Wahhabism (an austere form of Islam that requires literal interpretation of the Koran) in Chechnya, Kashmir, Bosnia, and other places. [Fifth Estate, 10/29/2003 ] This extends an alleged secret deal first made between the Saudi government and bin Laden in 1991.
1996 – Saudi Regime Goes to ‘Dark Side’: the Saudi Arabian government, which allegedly initiated payments to al-Qaeda in 1991 (see Summer 1991), increases its payments in 1996, becoming al-Qaeda’s largest financial backer. It also gives money to other extremist groups throughout Asia, vastly increasing al-Qaeda’s capabilities. [New Yorker, 10/16/2001] Presumably, two meetings in early summer bring about the change. Says one US official, “96 is the key year.… Bin Laden hooked up to all the bad guys–it’s like the Grand Alliance–and had a capability for conducting large-scale operations.”
1996 – FBI Fumbles Flight School Investigation; Murad and Eleven Other al-Qaeda Pilots Trained in US: Finding a business card for a US flight school in the possession of Operation Bojinka plotter Abdul Hakim Murad, the FBI investigates the US flight schools Murad attended. [Washington Post, 9/23/2001] He had trained at about six flight schools off and on, starting in 1990. Apparently, the FBI closes the investigation when they fail to find any other potential suspects. [Insight, 5/27/2002] However, Murad had already confessed to Philippine authorities the names of about ten other associates learning to fly in the US, and the Philippine authorities had asserted that they provided this information to the US. Murad detailed how he and a Pakistani friend crisscrossed the US, attending flight schools in New York, Texas, California and North Carolina. The Associated Press reports, “He also identified to Filipino police approximately 10 other Middle Eastern men who met him at the flight schools or were getting similar training. One was a Middle Eastern flight instructor who came to the United States for more training; another a former soldier in the United Arab Emirates. Others came from Sudan, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. None of the pilots match the names of the 19 hijackers from Sept. 11.” An assistant manager at a Schenectady, New York, flight school where Murad trained later recalls, “There were several [Middle Eastern pilot students] here. At one point three or four were here. Supposedly they didn’t know each other before, they just happened to show up here at the same time. But they all obviously knew each other.” However, US investigators somehow fail to detect any of these suspects before 9/11, despite being given their names. [Associated Press, 3/5/2002]
1996 to early 1997 – Probe of Suspicious Company with Saudi Ties Is Stalled
1996 to 1997 – Ptech Begins to Get US Government Contracts. Ptech is a Boston computer company connected to a number of individuals suspected of ties to officially designated terrorist organizations (see 1994). These alleged ties will be of particular concern because of Ptech’s potential access to classified government secrets.
1996 – FBI Directly Monitors Militants in Afganistan with Hi-Tech Phone Booth: I-49, a squad of FBI agents and Justice Department prosecutors that began focusing on bin Laden in 1996 (see January 1996) is upset that the NSA is not sharing with them data it has obtained through the monitoring of al-Qaeda.

Rebuilding America’s Defenses, Strategy, Forces and Resources For a New Century in which Dov Zakheim calls for a new Pearl Harbor. It is consistent with Zbigniew Brzezinski’s 1997 book, The Grand Chessboard in which he said that establishing military bases in Central Asia would be crucial for maintaining “American primacy,” partly because of the huge oil reserves around the Caspian Sea. … Brzezinski suggested that Americans today would support the needed military operations in Central Asia only “in the circumstance of a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat.” See also American Enterprise Institute
1997 September 11 – Securacom goes public. Securacom is ordered through a court of law to change its name to Stratesec, due to a name infringement suit. It listed among its clients the World Trade Center, Dulles Airport (Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority), United Airlines and Los Alamos National Laboratory.
1997 October 27 – Central Asia Gas Pipeline was incorporated in formal signing ceremonies in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan by several international oil companies along with the Government of Turkmenistan.
1997 December 4 – BBC News, World West Asia: “Taliban in Texas for talks on gas pipeline” – A senior delegation from the Taliban movement in Afghanistan is in the United States for talks with with an international energy company that wants to construct a gas pipeline from Turkmenistan across Afghanistan to Pakistan. A spokesman for the company, UNOCAL, said the Taliban were expected to spend several days at the company’s headquarters in Sugarland, Texas. UNOCAL says it has agreements both with Turkmenistan to sell its gas and with Pakistan to buy it. (Confirmed by U.S. State Department’s press officer for South Asian Affairs, Len Scensny.) This meeting was followed by meeting in Munich, Germany during which UNOCAL allegedly said to the Taliban “Well give you a pipeline to protect else we’ll bury you.” UNOCAL was one of the key players in the CentGas consortium, an attempt to build the Trans-Afghanistan Pipeline to run from the Caspian area, through Afghanistan and probably Pakistan to the Indian Ocean. One of the consultants to UNOCAL at that time was Zalmay Khalilzad, now US ambassador to Iraq. The CentGas pipeline was not built, due to inability of CentGas and the Taliban to come to a mutually acceptable economic understanding. Shortly thereafter, the US invaded Afghanistan, removing Taliban control from Afghanistan and making moot the question of their remuneration. UNOCAL is also the third largest member of the recently completed and opened Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline from the Caspian Sea to the Mediterranean Sea.

2001 – False Flag 11 preparation: Pakistan intelligence (ISI) Chief Mahmoud Ahmad requested Omar Saeed Sheikh (Ahmed Umar Syed Sheikh) to wire $100,000 to 9-11 lead hijacker, Mohammed Atta. This was confirmed by the director of the FBI’s financial crimes unit, Dennis Lormel, but the Official Congressional Report said they had not managed to trace the source of the funding and that it is of little consequence.
2001 July 24 – False Flag 11 preparation for profit: Despite the WTC being unprofitable, corroded and insulated with asbestos that could not be cost effectively removed, Larry Silverstein acquires a 99-year lease for WTC 1, 2, 4 and 5 for $3.2 billion with the right to rebuild the structures, should they be destroyed … even by an act of terrorism.

2001 September 10 – Plan to invade Afghastan finalized.
2001-2006 – The latest U.S. False Flag Episode – 11
2001 September 11 – As the attacks were occurring, the Carlyle Group was having a conference at the Ritz Carlton hotel in Washington, DC with members of the Bin Laden family, one of their investors, and General Mahmud, who allegedly financed the attack was meeting with members of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, and according to Senator Bob Graham, who attended the meeting, General Mahmud had just received a gift (a book about the American Civil War) from Rep. Porter Goss &emdash; then Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and a former CIA agent who would go on to become CIA Director in 2004.
2001 September 11– “Agency planned drill for plane crash last Sept. 11.” “… one US intelligence agency [NRO, National Reconnaissance Office] was planning an exercise last Sept. 11  in which an errant aircraft crashed into one of its buildings.” Honegger states that Dick Cheney was ultimately in charge of the NRO exercise on the morning of 9/11. He was in the White House Situation Room for that purpose. – The Associated Press, 22 August 2002.
2001 September 11 7:00 AM – Israelis in the vicinity of the WTC are forewarned of the attacks and Mossad agents were positioned to document the attacks. Did those tapping the phone tapping system connect the dots the FBI and CIA failed to do?
2001 September 11 8:13 AM – American Airlines Flight 11 is instructed by air traffic controllers at the FAA’s Boston Center, in Nashua, New Hampshire, to climb to 35,000 feet. The plane did not obey the order and its transponder was turned off. Air traffic control manager Glenn Michael said, “we considered it at that time to be a possible hijacking.”
2001 September 11 8:25 AM – Boston Flight Control Tells Other Centers About Hijack, But Not NORAD.
2001 September 11 8:34 AM – Atlantic City Jet Fighters Not Reached; Not Redeployed Until Much Later.

2001 September 11 8:37 AM – Boston Flight Control Notifies NEADS, Against Normal Procedures; Timing Disputed.
2001 September 11 After 8:37 AM – NORAD Scramble Order Moves Through Official and Unofficial Channels.
2001 September 11 8:40 AM – ‘Hubbub’ at NEADS Headquarters initially mistaken by Commander Robert Marr as a NORAD training exercise (presumably Vigilant Guardian). Mike Ruppert believes the exercise was intended to confuse NORAD to make a “stand-down” order unnecessary. Even if a stand-down order were issued by Cheney, he could justify it by saying any shoot-down over the area would have resulted in additional loss of life on the ground and he had no way of knowing the WTC 1 and WTC 2 would collapse merely as a result of fire.
2001 September 11 8:46:40 AM – American Airlines Flight 11 allegedly hits WTC 1 (North Tower). It was a Boeing 767-223 ER on a scheduled flight from Boston to Los Angeles with 81 passengers, nine flight attendants and two pilots. Most of the fuel is oxidized external to WTC 1.
2001 September 11 8:48 – The first media reports of Flight 11’s crash into the World Trade Center began when CNN broke into its regular programming at that time. Media members traveling in the Bush caravan and at the Emma T. Booker Elementary School, Sarasota, Florida are informed of the crash.
2001 September 11 9:00 – The Bush party arrive at Emma T. Booker Elementary School, Sarasota, Florida. There are at least four reports that Bush was told of the first crash before he arrived at the school. Given that it was classified as a hijacking, Bush’s limo was full of phones and electronic equipment, and Karl Rove, Bush’s “chief political strategist,” who presumably was riding with Bush, used a wireless e-mail device on 9/11 as well, there seems to have been ample opportunity and the means to alert Bush. Bush knew the U.S. was under attack before he entered the school.
2001 September 11 – The CIA is Running Simulation of a Plane Crashing into a Building. Most interceptors from the northeast are in Canada and Alaska for war games. With as many as 22 hijacked planes of undetermined origin on radar, interception is impossible for the 8 remaining fighters in the northeast. During the morning of 9/11, five U.S. sponsored war games were taking place, some involving “live-fly” exercises where actual aircraft were simulating the behavior of hijacked airliners in real life, which successfully paralyzed the FAA, NORAD and the Air Force (“Is this real world or an exercise?” – Co Robert M. Marr Jr, Northeast Air Defense Sector. “We have reports of 11 aircraft off course …” – FAA Administrator Jane Garvey. “We didn’t know how many more were there. – Lt. Col. William E. Glover Jr., NORAD Air Defense Operations.) from using the same Standard Operating Procedure they had applied between 09/00 and 06/01 when they successfully launched fighters on 67 occasions to escort wayward aircraft (FAA 08/09/02). — “Crossing the Rubicon, The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil” by Michael Ruppert. Cheney: “The orders still stand” as Flight 77 approaches the Pentagon with no action taken to defend it Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta was in the Presidential Emergency Operating Center with Vice President Cheney as Flight 77 approached Washington, D.C. On May 23, 2003, in front of the 9/11 Commission, Secretary Mineta testified: “During the time that the airplane was coming in to the Pentagon, there was a young man who would come in and say to the Vice President, “The plane is 50 miles out.” “The plane is 30 miles out.” And when it got down to “the plane is 10 miles out,” the young man also said to the Vice President, “Do the orders still stand?” And the Vice President turned and whipped his neck around and said, “Of course the orders still stand. Have you heard anything to the contrary? Other discussion.
2001 September 11 9:02:40 AM – United Airlines Flight 175, slams into the southwest face of WTC 2 (South Tower), creating an impact hole that extends from the 78th to 84th floor. It was allegedly a Boeing 767-222 on a scheduled flight from Boston to Los Angeles with 56 passengers, 7 flight attendants and 2 pilots. Most of the fuel is oxidized external to WTC 2.
2001 September 11 9:03 AM – President Bush is in the Emma T. Booker Elementary School, Sarasota, Florida listening to children read when Chief of Staff Andrew Card allegedly whispered in Bush’s ear, “A second plane hit the second tower. America is under attack.” President Bush sat for well over 5 minutes, doing nothing while 3,000 people were dying and the attacks were still in progress. The Secret Service also did nothing. Bush was appearing in public at a previously announced photo-op. He was a sitting duck.
By staying, he not only endangered his own life, but also the lives of all of those children. Wouldn’t it be better to risk upsetting them than to risk letting them die in a terror attack? Clearly, George knew he would not be attacked.
Perhaps thinking, “It’s really happening. All those people sacrificed for the New American Century…”
“I hope Cheney and the others do their job, and it goes according to the plan…”
Bush smiled and chatted with the children “as if he didn’t have a care in the world” and “in the most relaxed manner imaginable.” White House aide Gordon Johndroe, then came in as he usually does at the end of press conferences, and said, “Thank you, press. If you could step out the door we came in, please.” A reporter then asked, “Mr. President, are you aware of the reports of the plane crash in New York? Is there anything…”, But Bush interrupted, and no doubt recalling his order, “DON’T SAY ANYTHING YET,” Bush responded, “I’ll talk about it later.” But still the president did not leave. “He stepped forward and shook hands with [classroom teacher] Daniels, slipping his left hand behind her in another photo-op pose. He was taking his good old time. … Bush lingered until the press was gone.” [Fighting Back: The War on Terrorism – From Inside the Bush White House, by Bill Sammon, 10/02, p. 90].
2001 September 11 9:33 AM – American Airlines Flight 77 makes a radical 270-degree turn to avoid striking the front of the Pentagon, where Rumsfeld and the Joint Chiefs reside, and strikes a relatively uninhabited and recently reinforced section of the Pentagon occupied by accountants and investigators. It was a Boeing 757-200.
|Mystery object: The plane that hit the Pentagon isn’t seen in any photographs. Some ask if it existed at all, including French analysts who determined that at least two frames are missing from the Pentagon video. A subsequent analysis supports the crash of a Boeing 757-200 by introducing the fact that much of its wing is made from carbon fiber. Why not publish the serial numbers of recovered aircraft parts to confirm it was Flight 77?
Within minutes of the blast, all security camera tapes are immediately confiscated from a Nexcom/Citco gas station (open only to Department of Defense personnel) and a Double Tree Inn, and presumably all six Pentagon cameras with a view of the scene. Why not publish all the tapes? Here is a list of all the videos.

Most of the jet fuel was consumed in the fireball immediately following the impact. The WTC fires did not exceed 800 degrees F. Steel in open air fire does not get hot enough to melt, yet molten metal is seen pouring from the building. Thermite: Iron sulfate plus aluminum (Fe2O3 + 2Al) + ignition yields intense heat, molten iron and aluminum sulfate (Al2-O3). From 9/11 Truth: Thermite & The Case for Controlled Demolition was removed from YouTube, but similar video available here:
|WTC, where the upper flames are from the combustion of paper, furniture, etc. The lower is molten steel from the combustion of thermate.||Automobile example of thermite reaction:|
Brigham Young University physicist, Prof. Steven Jones: Yellow molten metal and yellow ash are signatures of thermite. Samples examined with proton induced X-ray emission and electron microprobe detected Iron, sulfur, potassium and maganese in ratios characteristic of thermate, which cuts metal faster than thermite sulfur plus potassium permanganate. Thermate is Thermite plus sulfur, which lowers melting point and accelerates results. Evidence of thermate found in WTC dust. Applying the scientific method to 911 (thoroughly scientific – must read). WTC Secondary Explosions are evidence of demolition. Many video and audio recordings of multiple explosion and molten metal testimony. All such evidence has been removed from YouTube.
The basements had to be collapsed to make room for the rubble from the demolition of the above ground floors so it would not expand sideways into buildings that were to be preserved. Here’s the explosion that did it. Here are the squids that collapsed one Tower into its basement.
Video cameras positioned atop the World Trade Center, which were used to feed daily images to local television stations were inexplicably inoperative that morning. [WingTV]. Live video cameras on the WTC would have graphically registered the following…
2001 September 11 9:58:59 AM – The 1362 foot high WTC 2 South Tower disintegrates into its basement in 10 seconds when at least 31 seconds are required for the pancake theory to be valid. Video frame 147 highlights the first obvious explosion at floor 79 and the area of where a second explosion will appear at floor 75, followed by frame 203 that highlights both explosions. Most of the following photos were taken from 9-1-1 Research:
If these were caused by air being forced from the windows as the floors above collapsed, such lines of dust would have been expelled from the windows of each floor in succession (79, 78, 77, 76 and 75). These asymmetric explosions cause the upper 30 or so floors to topple as a unit outlined in red in frame 001. The tilt is better shown in the photo by Jim Collins/AP (The Ground Zero Grassy Knoll by Mark Jacobson).
Buildings normally topple when they collapse as the top of WTC 2 begins to do. The top unit of floors must be disintegrating, due to demolition, otherwise at least its steel core would have extended into parts of the building that are clearly unaffected by the collapse at this moment. This kind of disintegration is seen more clearly in the North Tower frames. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JsoWbX6hCYk.
The lower structure was accustomed to supporting the upper structure, and was designed with a safety factor of six, so it could support six such units of material. The upper unit is disintegrating into dust, much of which falls away from the lower structure, reducing its static load. While the crumbling upper unit is adding dynamic load to the lower structure, the load is distributed and dispersed, hence one would expect the lower structure to remain standing. At worst, given the asymmetric damage, the tops of WTC 1 and 2 should have toppled. If WTC 1 collapsed symmetrically, then at most 5.3 floors of the upper section and 5.3 floors of the lower section should have compressed to absorb the impact of a free-fall of the upper section into the lower section the distance of one floor.
2001 September 11 9:59 AM – Firemen hear squids firing, “bang, bang, bang, bang, bang”, and the 1368 foot high WTC 1 North Tower collapses into its basement in 8 seconds. Like the South Tower, horizontal explosions of dust and debris occur just above the red line on frame 041. These continue their expansion through subsequent frames as shown in oscillating animation of frames 001 and 067.
Note the explosion half-way up that section in frame 67. Note also that the radio tower sinks into the upper floors faster than the floors disintegrate, indicating that the core is disintegrating faster than the external structure, before striking the lower structure. Again, one would expect the lower floors to sustain the disintegration with at least the momentum of their mass. The core would have certainly remained intact if it were not compromised by demolition charges.
Far below the collapse are jets of debris that include large chunks of concrete from the demolition of core structure as shown in the photo by Jerry Torrens/AP (The Ground Zero Grassy Knoll by Mark Jacobson). The destruction of the core must proceed that of the external structure to assure that the building collapses inward, minimizing damage to surrounding buildings: the goal of all demolitions. Such a jet is also shown in the Jim Collins/AP photo below.
The “puff of smoke” about 20 floors below the cascade of falling floors is suspicious, but could be explained by a bad pour of concrete shattering under the shock of the cascade, and exploding through the windows. However, there are two jets of exploding debris on two different floors in another photo, and a consistent series of concrete jets all the way down the building the same distance ahead of the collapse in other videos (Woolworth building, ABC News views). The puffs indicate charges meant to shatter the massive central core of the building, which should have been the last structure standing after the floor collapse in the PBS documentary, “Why the Towers Fell” simulation (from FEMA report) shown above. This plus the collapse time near the free fall time of 9.6 seconds lends credence to the controlled demolition theory. The 911 Mysteries video includes great shots from near the base of the towers looking up at the collapse. Pay close attention to the ejecta from the core explosions well ahead of the falling debris and the perimeter explosions immediately in front of the debris.
Pools of molten iron were found at the base of the towers. Appendix C of the FEMA report describe iron oxide and sulfur oxide found on walls. The NY Times called this “the deepest mystery of all.” An EMT in the basement confirms explosions, molten metal and compromised columns.
Demolition expert: “We blow the basement – all the columns in the basement. Then we crack it up at the top to get it started. We go every other floor … all the way down.”

2001 September 11, ? AM – Cause of collapse implanted in public consciousness immediately after the collapse of WTC 1 and 2. Why did Fox News interview the one “person on the street,” who happened to delineate the structural-failure-due-to-fires theory before it was a theory? He sounds like his is reciting a script. When Ted Kopel asks if it is possible that a plane crash could have collapsed the buildings, or were pre-planted explosives required, he was immediately told of plane full of fuel was sufficient to cause each of the WTC 1 and 2 buildings to “collapse on itself” due to fire weakening structural steel. When Ted asked if it is possible for an attack so sophisticated to be done without Iraq, Iran, Syria or Libya being involved, he set the stage for the invasion of Iraq and was told the attack had “finger prints of somebody like bin Ladin”, implicating bin Ladin over anyone else long before there was any alleged evidence.

2001 September 11 4:54 PM – Assuming it is correct, Time Stamp Confirms BBC Reported WTC 7 Collapse 26 Minutes In Advance, so the BBC had to know WTC 7 was going to collapse nearly an hour in advance of the event.
2001 September 11, 5:00 PM – Emergency personnel are aware of impending implosion of WTC 7.
2001 September 11, 5:10-5:20 (FEMA) PM – WTC 7 collapses into its basement in 6.5 seconds. Enron stock fraud and California swindle evidence disappears with WTC 7. Silvestein later contradicted his clearly recorded statement, and said he was talking about pulling the firemen from the WTC 7 when there were none inside.
Bush: “9-11 provides great opportunities for us.” … Where “us” are the neocons and their Project for a New American Century.
It would have been more convenient if there were a direct link between 9-11 and Iraq, but once Americans were motivated for revenge by the 9-11 incident, it took only an excuse to invade Iraq. If nuclear weapons in the region were the excuse, the U.S. should have invaded Israel, Pakistan or India. Bogus WMD threats did not push the polls high enough to motivate Congress, but saving Iraqis from the dictator who held the country together with brute force did. The neocons got their invasion to destabilize the Middle East, and defense contractors got a new lease on life. The quote by Randolph Bourne, “War is the health of the State,” should be amended to: “War is the health of the State, its military, its contractors and their weapons merchants.”
Then there is the long relationship between the Bush family and the Saudis in general and the bin Laden family in particular. I would not be surprised that Osama agreed to be get the flight crews, and be the patsy in exchange for a high ranking position in the Saudi government when it is handed to the bin Ladins after the U.S. consolidates its power in the Middle East. In the mean time the CIA helps their previous and perhaps current employee, Osama avoid capture by the U.S. military.
From ideology to stocks and contracts, many more Americans benefited and continue to benefit from 9-11 than the number who died in it.

2007 April 27 – White House and Pentagon officials, and particularly Vice President Dick Cheney, were determined to attack Iraq from the first days of the Bush administration, long before the Sept. 11 attacks, and repeatedly stretched available intelligence to build support for the war, according to CIA director George Tenet in his book, “At the Center of the Storm,” saying they pushed the country to war in Iraq without ever conducting a “serious debate” about whether Saddam Hussein posed an imminent threat to the United States. “There was never a serious debate that I know of within the administration about the imminence of the Iraqi threat,” Mr. Tenet writes in a devastating judgment that is likely to be debated for many years. Nor, he adds, “was there ever a significant discussion” about the possibility of containing Iraq without an invasion. “Cheney and Rumsfeld inserted ‘crap’ into public justifications for war.” A speech by Cheney “went well beyond what our analysis could support.” The speech charged, among other things, that Saddam had restarted his nuclear program and would “acquire nuclear weapons fairly soon … perhaps within a year.” Caught off-guard by the remarks, which had not been cleared by the CIA, Tenet says he considered confronting the vice president on the subject but did not.

- Why were 29 pages of the 9/11 committee report personally censored at the request of President Bush?
- Where are the “black boxes” from Flight 11 and Flight 175?
- Where are the “voice recorders” from Flight 11 and Flight 175?
- Why can’t we gain access to the complete air traffic control records for Flight 11 and Flight 175?
- Where are the airport surveillance tapes that show the passengers boarding the doomed flights?
- Why did your brother Jeb (the Governor of Florida) go to the offices of the Hoffman Aviation School and order that flight records and files be removed? These files were then put on a C130 government cargo plane and flown out of the country. Where were they taken, and who ordered it done?
- Why were the serial numbers on the aircraft parts at the crash sites not traced to the aircraft of American Flight 11, United Flight 175, American Flight 77 and American Flight 93, respectively, as is customary in accident investigations?
