5 CONFIRMED FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS AND
HOW TO SPOT THEM IN THE FUTURE
story of the false flag phenomenon is one that is still being written
The concept of the “false flag” operation has become
almost prohibitively stigmatized in recent years because of the 9/11 “truther”
movement and the emotional fallout from the tragedies at Sandy Hook, Aurora,
Boston and others. In spite of being labeled “conspiracy theories,” real,
verifiable false flag events have taken place in the past. Such examples serve
to dismantle the notion that false flags are meritless conspiracy theories and
can help destigmatize the concept itself, providing the diagnostic lens needed
to identify false flags when they arise.
Richard Dolan made a presentation at the 2015 conference about what he
calls the “false flag era.” According to Dolan, because false flag operations
require control over the global media narrative and the ability to intimidate
other countries into not speaking out against “inside jobs,” only a few countries
have the means and motives to pull them off.
flag phenomenon is distinctively modern and used as an ideological weapon to
control populations with the fear of a manufactured enemy. They are used in
ostensibly democratic systems where people believe they have inalienable
rights. Such democratic systems—primarily the United States, Israel, and Great
Britain—must shock people into sociopolitical and geopolitical consent and, as
such, require sophisticated modern propaganda systems and advanced covert
operations teams with highly proficient skills.
Gladio was a established by the CIA,
NATO, and possibly Britain’s M16 to fight communism in Europe by whatever means
necessary. The two-decade operation used CIA-created “stay behind” networks as
part of a “” that unleashed
a multitude of terrorist attacks from the late 1960s to the early 1980s. The
attacks were blamed on Marxists and other in order to
discredit communism. The operation involved multiple bombings that killed
hundreds of innocent people, including children. The most notable attack was
the August 2, 1980 bombing of the Bologna train station, which killed 85
How do we
know about Operation Gladio in spite of its incredibly clandestine nature?
There are two principle sources. One, the investigations of Italian judge , whose presentation
was so compelling it forced Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti to confirm
Gladio’s existence. The second source is testimony from an actual Gladio
operative, Vincenzo Vinciguerra, who is serving a life sentence for murder. In
a 1990 interview with the Guardian, that Gladio was designed to
psychologically coerce the Italian public to rely on the state for security.
In 1953, the
CIA launched Operation Ajax in order to overthrow Iran’s democratically elected
leader, Mohammed Mosaddiq, and replace him with the Shah, a ruthless dictator.
The United States sought to depose Iran’s nationalized Anglo-Persian oil
company and install 5 U.S. oil companies to take over the nation’s oil fields.
In order to do so, they staged a that utilized propaganda and
complex political maneuvers in order to create public revolt that eventually
led to the United States and Britain’s M16 military intelligence re-installing
the Shah in order to and
transform the nation into a puppet regime of the United States government.
In 1954, a
year after Operation Ajax, Israel launched its own false flag operation.
Code-named Operation Susannah, the Lavon Affair featured the covert operation
of Israeli agents who in several
Egyptian, American, and British-owned cinemas, libraries and educational
centers, including a United States diplomatic facility, framing eight Egyptian
Muslims as the perpetrators.
One of the
bombs detonated prematurely, which caused one of the bombers to be captured. A
public trial exposed the Israeli spy ring and the covert operation. The
operatives were convicted and two of them executed. Israeli Defense Minister
Pinhas Lavon was forced to step down because of the scandal. However, the more
far-reaching consequences of the Lavon Affair demonstrate once again how
governments use false flags to achieve certain objectives that might not have
been possible otherwise. In this case, according to a , the operation
triggered a chain reaction of game-changing events:

political organizations to discredit and smear them. This included critics of
the Vietnam War, civil rights leaders like , and a wide variety of activists

Lyndon B. Johnson promptly drafted the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, which became
his administration’s legal justification for military involvement in Vietnam.
The problem is the event never happened—and Johnson had no reason to believe it
Law enforcement, government
agencies, and the mainstream media immediately proffer a narrative that
completely explains the event and encourages citizens to tie their intellectual
understanding of the tragedy to the emotions they experience. In his lecture at
Contact in the Desert, Richard Dolan noted that a distinguishing characteristic
of a false flag operation is that the official narrative IS NOT questioned by
the media. There are often legislative, ideological and sociopolitical power
plays waiting in the wings, which the government can immediately implement. The
most striking example of this is the Patriot Act, which was but
seemed to correlate entirely with the events that had transpired.
The Bush administration used
9/11 to usher in the War on Terror, which has served as a lynchpin for
the national security state, including ubiquitous domestic surveillance and
indefinite detention. It also directly paved the way for an invasion of
Afghanistan and Iraq—countries that had nothing to do with the attacks—allowing
our government and defense contractors to control the natural gas pipelines and
oil fields. This bears a striking resemblance to Operation Ajax.
~ For example, many of the recent
domestic terror attacks, including the Aurora shooting, have exacerbated and
reinforced advocacy of gun control legislation. More importantly, these attacks
divide populations and invite the government and militarized local police
forces to have the authority to declare martial law at will, .
We saw this after the Boston marathon bombing, the most striking example of
this nation’s post 9/11 police state mentality.

major domestic or international terror attacks have involved simultaneous
“training drills.” This list includes, but is not limited to, the infamous , the , the ,

aforementioned events can be confirmed or denied without a doubt, they bear a
striking resemblance to previous false flag attacks and should be looked at
with an investigative eye.

unimaginable amounts of money and resources. It will take time and many
contributions by intrepid researchers and whistleblowers to prove them.
made for and against 9/11 being a false flag “inside job” are voluminous and
highly controversial. The narrative is so convoluted with disinformation that
despite all of the technology and online resources at our disposal, it is
highly unlikely we will know for sure how many layers of shadow and black op
agencies were used—if, in fact, they were. What we do know is that shortly
before the events of 9/11, then-Secretary of State Donald Rumsfeld announced
that was missing from the
Pentagon’s budget. Unfortunately, too much evidence has been destroyed or
manipulated to reach a conclusive verdict as to whether it was a full blown
false flag or .
story of the false flag phenomenon is one that is still being written. Our
analysis of it must breach the most powerful information control filters the
world has ever seen. As technology and social enlightenment make the crimes of
the world’s national governments transparent, we will see shocking new chapters
added to this history that will shatter mainstream perceptions of reality.
