A fortnight after the Mandalay Bay massacre took place, a video appeared on YouTube concerning a 1962 Deep State false flag proposal known as Operation Northwoods:

Wikipedia introduces it as follows (bold emphasis in the original, emphases in purple mine):

Operation Northwoods was a proposed false flag operation against the Cuban government that originated within the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) of the United States government in 1962. The proposals called for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) or other U.S. government operatives to commit acts of terrorism against American civilians and military targets, blaming it on the Cuban government, and using it to justify a war against Cuba. The plans detailed in the document included the possible assassination of Cuban émigrés, sinking boats of Cuban refugees on the high seas, hijacking planes, blowing up a U.S. ship, and orchestrating violent terrorism in U.S. cities.[2] The proposals were rejected by the Kennedy administration.[3]

At the time of the proposal, communists led by Fidel Castro had recently taken power in Cuba. The operation proposed creating public support for a war against Cuba by blaming it for terrorist acts that would actually be perpetrated by the U.S. Government.[4] To this end, Operation Northwoods proposals recommended hijackings and bombings followed by the introduction of phony evidence that would implicate the Cuban government.

The probable behind-the-scenes goal of the Mandalay Bay massacre was to create legislation for nationwide gun control. Another probable goal was to increase surveillance — e.g. the number of airport-style scanners — around the nation in places that do not currently have them. Manufacturers of various types of scanning equipment stood to make millions of dollars.

Because we have so few facts about what happened at Mandalay Bay — and other hotels — the video about Operation Northwoods provides an example of possible contrivance, especially if Deep State were involved.

The couple who present the video go through the declassified document page by page. It is worth viewing.

We learn that Northwoods would have been a highly planned and staged sequence of events (8:43, 8:45, 8:52):

(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 the base.

(10) Sabotage ship in harbor; large fires — napthalene.

(11) Sink ship near harbor entrance. Conduct funerals for mock victims (may be in lieu of (10)).

Also (10:20):

3. A “Remember the Maine” incident could be arranged in several forms:

a. We could blow up a ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba.

b. We could blow up a drone (unmanned) vessel anywhere in the Cuban waters. We could arrange to cause such incident in the vicinity of Havana or Santiago as a spectacular result of Cuban attack from the air or sea, or both …

And (13:14):

The terror campaign could be pointed at Cuban refugees seeking haven in the United States. We could sink a boatload of Cubans enroute to Florida (real or simulated). We could foster attempts on lives of Cuban refugees in the United States even to the extent of wounding in instances to be highly publicised. Exploding a few plastic bombs in carefully chosen spots, the arrest of Cuban agents and the release of prepared documents substantiating Cuban involvement also would be helpful …

A fake civilian airplane attack was also envisaged (16:33, 17:01):

8. 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 to Jamaica, Guatemala, Panama or Venezuela …

a. 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 a designated time the duplicate would be substituted for the actual civil aircraft and would be loaded with the selected passengers, all boarded under carefully prepared aliases. The actual registered aircraft would be converted to a drone …

The video shows the pages from the document detailing exactly how this would work.

All of this was designed to manipulate public opinion.

The people who put this document together did not care about human life.

The video also shows footage of the aftermath of other horrific incidents, including the neat stack of passports found after 9/11. I, too, have often wondered how those passports looked so pristine, given the circumstances. Hmm.

In any event, keep Operation Northwoods in mind when horrific incidents occur.

This week, citizen journalists returned to Las Vegas to comb the city for more evidence and information connected to the devastating events of Sunday, October 1. If anything substantial develops, I will write about it.
