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 Contact in the Desert 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.

The false
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.

Operation Gladio

Gladio was a post-World War II program 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 “Strategy of Tension” that unleashed
a multitude of terrorist attacks from the late 1960s to the early 1980s. The
attacks were blamed on Marxists and other left-wing political opponents 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 Felice Casson, 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, Vincenzo stated that Gladio was designed to
psychologically coerce the Italian public to rely on the state for security.

Operation Ajax

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 false flag operation 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 throttle Iran’s oil supplies and
transform the nation into a puppet regime of the United States government.

information relevant to this CIA-sponsored coup is declassified now and
available in the CIA archives.

The CIA described itself Operation

“The world has paid a heavy
price for the lack of democracy in most of the Middle East. Operation Ajax taught
tyrants and aspiring tyrants that the world’s most powerful governments were
willing to tolerate limitless oppression as long as oppressive regimes were
friendly to the West and to Western oil companies. That helped tilt the
political balance in a vast region away from freedom and toward dictatorship.”

The Lavon Affair

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 planted bombs 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 Stanford published paper, the operation
triggered a chain reaction of game-changing events:

“A retaliatory military
incursion by Israel into Gaza that killed 39 Egyptians; a subsequent
Egyptian–Soviet arms deal that angered American and British leaders, who then
withdrew previously pledged support for the building of the Aswan Dam; the
announced nationalization of the Suez Canal by Nasser in retaliation for the
withdrawn support; and the subsequent failed invasion of Egypt by Israel,
France, and Britain in an attempt to topple Nasser. In the wake of that failed
invasion, France expanded and accelerated its ongoing nuclear cooperation with
Israel, which eventually enabled the Jewish state to build nuclear weapons.”


was a series of clandestine, illegal FBI projects that infiltrated domestic
political organizations to discredit and smear them. This included critics of
the Vietnam War, civil rights leaders like Dr. Martin Luther King, and a wide variety of activists
and journalists.

The acts committed against them
included psychological warfare, slander using forged documents and false
reports in the media, harassment, wrongful imprisonment and, according to some,
intimidation and possibly violence and assassination.

A U.S.
Congressional committee documented the false flag
component of the campaign, describing how the FBI had hired provocateurs from
the 1950s through the 1970s to commit criminal and violent acts and falsely
blame them on political activists. The campaign worked extremely effectively at
disrupting the progressive momentum of the era.

Despite being
formally discontinued, new permutations of COINTELPRO
have persisted and include present-day efforts to undermine activists, whistleblowers
and protests. In fact, a 2012 article published by The Guardian described the
FBI’s crackdown on the Occupy movement as a “totally integrated corporate-state
repression of dissent.”

Gulf of Tonkin

The Gulf of Tonkin incident, a
major escalator of U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War, never actually
occurred. The government essentially staged—or at the very least, utilized a
patently false report—in order to manufacture a geopolitical narrative with a
ready-made enemy, the North Vietnamese.

The original
incident—also sometimes referred to as the U.S.S. Maddox Incident(s)—involved
the destroyer U.S.S. Maddox supposedly engaging three North Vietnamese Navy
torpedo boats as part of an intelligence patrol. The Maddox fired almost 300

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

In 2005, a declassified internal National Security Agency
 revealed that there were no North Vietnamese naval
vessels present during the incident. So what was the Maddox firing at? In 1965,
President Johnson commented, “For all I know, our Navy was shooting at
whales out there.

The NSA’s own historian, Robert J. Hanyok,
wrote a report stating that the agency had deliberately distorted intelligence
reports in 1964. He concluded that

“The parallels between the
faulty intelligence on Tonkin Gulf and the manipulated intelligence used to
justify the Iraq War make it all the more worthwhile to re-examine the events
of August 1964.”

The Warning Signs of a False Flag Operation:

~There is an immediate
comprehensive narrative, including a convenient culprit.
 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 written well before 9/11 but
seemed to correlate entirely with the events that had transpired.

~The official narrative has
obvious domestic and geopolitical advantages for the governing body.
 The Bush administration used
9/11 to usher in the War on Terror, which has served as a lynchpin for
countless civil liberty infringements by
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.

~The narrative behind the attack serves to leverage emotions like
fear, as well as patriotism, in order to manufacture consent around a
previously controversial issue.
 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, locking down entire neighborhoods.
We saw this after the Boston marathon bombing, the most striking example of
this nation’s post 9/11 police state mentality.

~Military training drills and police drills occur on the day of and
very near the attack itself, causing confusion to obscure eye witness testimony
and allowing orchestrators to plant both patsies, disinformation and backup
. This is no small point. An incredible percentage of
major domestic or international terror attacks have involved simultaneous
“training drills.” This list includes, but is not limited to, the infamous NORAD drills of 9/11, the 7/7 London Bombings, the 2011 Norway shooting,
the Aurora shootingSandy Hook, and the Boston Marathon. Though none of 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.

The bigger
false flags that occurred in the last two decades undoubtedly utilized
unimaginable amounts of money and resources. It will take time and many
contributions by intrepid researchers and whistleblowers to prove them.

The cases
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 $2.3 trillion dollars 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 an extreme case of state opportunism.

Remember, the
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.
