Operation Northwoods: A Documented Plan To Use Domestic Terrorism To Provoke A WAR
by Paine Sunday November 03, 2002 at 07:33 AM

What is perhaps most chilling about Operation Northwoods, which was approved by EVERY Joint Chiefs Of Staff (and only not implemented because of President Kennedy shortly before he was killed) besides the obvious! is that in a Google search there is not ONE other "main-stream" media listing.

Book: U.S. Military Drafted Plans to Terrorize U.S. Cities to Provoke War With Cuba
By David Ruppe

N E W Y O R K, May 1 — In the early 1960s, America's top military leaders reportedly
drafted plans to kill innocent people and commit acts of terrorism in U.S. cities to create
public support for a war against Cuba.
Code named Operation Northwoods, the plans reportedly included the possible
assassination of Cuban �migr�s, sinking boats of Cuban refugees on the high seas,
hijacking planes, blowing up a U.S. ship, and even orchestrating violent terrorism in U.S.
The plans were developed as ways to trick the American public and the international
community into supporting a war to oust Cuba's then new leader, communist Fidel Castro.
America's top military brass even contemplated causing U.S. military casualties, writing:
"We could blow up a U.S. ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba," and, "casualty lists
in U.S. newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation."
Details of the plans are described in Body of Secrets (Doubleday), a new book by
investigative reporter James Bamford about the history of America's largest spy agency,
the National Security Agency. However, the plans were not connected to the agency, he
The plans had the written approval of all of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and were presented to
President Kennedy's defense secretary, Robert McNamara, in March 1962. But they
apparently were rejected by the civilian leadership and have gone undisclosed for nearly 40
"These were Joint Chiefs of Staff documents. The reason these were held secret for so
long is the Joint Chiefs never wanted to give these up because they were so embarrassing,"
Bamford told ABCNEWS.com.
"The whole point of a democracy is to have leaders responding to the public will, and here
this is the complete reverse, the military trying to trick the American people into a war that
they want but that nobody else wants."
Gunning for War
The documents show "the Joint Chiefs of Staff drew up and approved plans for what may
be the most corrupt plan ever created by the U.S. government," writes Bamford.
The Joint Chiefs even proposed using the potential death of astronaut John Glenn during
the first attempt to put an American into orbit as a false pretext for war with Cuba, the
documents show.
Should the rocket explode and kill Glenn, they wrote, "the objective is to provide
irrevocable proof … that the fault lies with the Communists et all Cuba [sic]."
The plans were motivated by an intense desire among senior military leaders to depose
Castro, who seized power in 1959 to become the first communist leader in the Western
Hemisphere — only 90 miles from U.S. shores.
The earlier CIA-backed Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba by Cuban exiles had been a
disastrous failure, in which the military was not allowed to provide firepower.The military
leaders now wanted a shot at it.
"The whole thing was so bizarre," says Bamford, noting public and international support
would be needed for an invasion, but apparently neither the American public, nor the
Cuban public, wanted to see U.S. troops deployed to drive out Castro.
Reflecting this, the U.S. plan called for establishing prolonged military — not democratic
— control over the island nation after the invasion.
"That's what we're supposed to be freeing them from," Bamford says. "The only way we
would have succeeded is by doing exactly what the Russians were doing all over the
world, by imposing a government by tyranny, basically what we were accusing Castro
himself of doing."
'Over the Edge'
The Joint Chiefs at the time were headed by Eisenhower appointee Army Gen. Lyman L.
Lemnitzer, who, with the signed plans in hand made a pitch to McNamara on March 13,
1962, recommending Operation Northwoods be run by the military.
Whether the Joint Chiefs' plans were rejected by McNamara in the meeting is not clear.
But three days later, President Kennedy told Lemnitzer directly there was virtually no
possibility of ever using overt force to take Cuba, Bamford reports. Within months,
Lemnitzer would be denied another term as chairman and transferred to another job.
The secret plans came at a time when there was distrust in the military leadership about
their civilian leadership, with leaders in the Kennedy administration viewed as too liberal,
insufficiently experienced and soft on communism. At the same time, however, there real
were concerns in American society about their military overstepping its bounds.
There were reports U.S. military leaders had encouraged their subordinates to vote
conservative during the election.
And at least two popular books were published focusing on a right-wing military
leadership pushing the limits against government policy of the day. The Senate Foreign
Relations Committee published its own report on right-wing extremism in the military,
warning a "considerable danger" in the "education and propaganda activities of military
personnel" had been uncovered. The committee even called for an examination of any ties
between Lemnitzer and right-wing groups. But Congress didn't get wind of Northwoods,
says Bamford.
"Although no one in Congress could have known at the time," he writes, "Lemnitzer and
the Joint Chiefs had quietly slipped over the edge."
Even after Lemnitzer was gone, he writes, the Joint Chiefs continued to plan "pretext"
operations at least through 1963.
One idea was to create a war between Cuba and another Latin American country so that
the United States could intervene. Another was to pay someone in the Castro government
to attack U.S. forces at the Guantanamo naval base — an act, which Bamford notes,
would have amounted to treason. And another was to fly low level U-2 flights over Cuba,
with the intention of having one shot down as a pretext for a war.
"There really was a worry at the time about the military going off crazy and they did, but
they never succeeded, but it wasn't for lack of trying," he says.
After 40 Years
Ironically, the documents came to light, says Bamford, in part because of the 1992 Oliver
Stone film JFK, which examined the possibility of a conspiracy behind the assassination of
President Kennedy.
As public interest in the assassination swelled after JFK's release, Congress passed a law
designed to increase the public's access to government records related to the assassination.
The author says a friend on the board tipped him off to the documents.
Afraid of a congressional investigation, Lemnitzer had ordered all Joint Chiefs documents
related to the Bay of Pigs destroyed, says Bamford. But somehow, these remained.
"The scary thing is none of this stuff comes out until 40 years after," says Bamford

Operation Northwoods






A highly revealing ABC news article < http://abcnews.go.com/US/story?id=92662>  describes plans for government-sponsored terrorism right here in America:


"In the early 1960s, America's   top military leaders drafted plans to kill innocent people and commit acts of terrorism in U.S. cities to create public support for a war against Cuba."


The article goes on to reveal that the plans, code-named Operation Northwoods, were approved in writing by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and endorsed by Defense Secretary Robert McNamara. Yes, it's a fact that our own military leaders proposed we secretly blow up an American ship and hijack US planes as a false pretext for war!


For the entire shocking article:   http://abcnews.go.com/US/story?id=92662.

To read the 15 most revealing pages of these documents posted on the National Security Archive of George Washington University, see:



Note that these government documents were approved in writing by the Joint Chiefs of Staff - the top generals of each branch of the US armed forces - and  submitted to Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara in 1962. The only reason these plans were not implemented is that they were rejected by the Kennedy administration. Had the administration approved, these secret manipulations would almost certainly have fooled the American public into supporting war. These plans for government- sponsored terrorism were classified top secret so that the American public would never know how it was being manipulated. They came   to light only because of a Freedom of Information Act request in the  late 1990s. Had the plans been used, they would have been given operational status, and thus would never have been released to the public in accordance with secrecy laws.


Below are key passages quoted directly from the Operation Northwoods documents, which you can verify at the above links. Page numbers are listed to assist in finding the quotes in the original documents. As you read, we invite  you to then ask yourself, is it beyond comprehension that this same kind  of thinking and planning could have led to 9/11? More information on what you can do is given below these quotes.



Excerpts from  Operation Northwoods Documents


Page 1 of File (Memorandum)

 13 March 1962



 Subject:   Justification for US Military Intervention in Cuba 


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


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


World opinion, and  the United Nations forum should be favorably affected by developing the international image of the Cuban government as rash and irresponsible, and as   an alarming and unpredictable threat to the peace of the Western Hemisphere.


Page 8 of File (page 5 of Joint Chiefs report)


This plan ... should be developed to focus all efforts on a specific ultimate objective which would provide adequate justification for US military intervention. Such a plan would enable a logical build-up of incidents to be combined with other seemingly unrelated events to camouflage the ultimate objective. 


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


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


(1)     Start rumors (many).  Use clandestine radio.

 (2)     Land friendly Cubans  in uniform "over-the-fence" to stage attack on base.

 (3)     Capture Cuban  (friendly) saboteurs inside the base.

 (4)     Start riots near the  base main gate (friendly Cubans).

 (5)     Blow up ammunition  inside the base: start fires.

 (6)     Burn aircraft on air  base (sabotage).

 (7)     Lob mortar shells from  outside of base into base.

 (8)     Capture assault teams  approaching from the sea or vicinity of Guantanamo City.

 (9)     Capture militia group  which storms base.

 (10)   Sabotage ship in harbor; large fires - naphthalene.

 (11)   Sink ship near harbor entrance. Conduct funerals for mock-victims. 


We could  blow up a US ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba. Casualty lists in US   newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation. 


We could develop a  Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities  and even in Washington.


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


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


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


Hijacking attempts against civil air and surface craft should appear to  continue as harassing measures condoned by the government of Cuba.


It is possible to create an incident which will demonstrate convincingly that a Cuban aircraft has attacked and shot down a chartered civil airliner enroute from the United States. The destination would   be chosen only to cause the flight plan to cross Cuba. The passengers could  be a group of college students off on a holiday.


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


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



What We Can Do


Remember that government and military leaders think of world politics like a chess game. Sometimes you have to sacrifice your own pieces in order to win the game. Zbigniew Brzezinski, former U.S.

National Security Advisor and co-founder of the Trilateral Commission, titled his 1997 book The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives. In this seminal book on American foreign policy, Brzezinksi states that because of popular resistance to U.S. military expansionism, his ambitious strategy for "American global primacy" can't be implemented "except in the circumstance of a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat." (The Grand Chessboard < http://www.WantToKnow.info/brzezinskigrandchessboard>  , page 211). 


Consider also that in September 2000, a think-tank named Project for the New American Century published a blueprint for maintaining global U.S. preeminence and shaping the international security order in line with U.S. interests. Written before the 2000 Presidential election, this revealing report was commissioned by future Vice President Cheney, Defense Secretary Rumsfeld, Deputy Defense Secretary Wolfowitz, and  Governor Jeb Bush. The report shows that even before 9/11, the Bush administration intended to take military control of Persian Gulf oil whether or not Saddam Hussein was in power. [Article on BBC website and original report both available here < http://www.wanttoknow.info/9-11cover-up10pg#pnac>  ] 


Considering the above information, is it beyond comprehension that tactics similar to Operation Northwoods might have been used in relation to the 9/11 attacks in order to create "a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat?"


Could 9/11 have been the pretext upon which to build a War on Terror in order to "maintain global US preeminence?"


Might the 9/11 attacks have been allowed to happen, or even facilitated and manipulated by elements of the U.S. government and military?

   "My wife and I, transfixed in front of a TV as the horror of 9/11 unfolded, watched

as the topmost, undamaged floors of the WTC South Tower started to gradually lean (rotate)

in the direction of the damage due to impact. In an instant, the rotation stopped, and that

which was rotating began to fall, as if only under the influence of gravity!  The fulcrum

was no longer there. I blurted out, 'My god, they wired the building'."
