Governments From Around the World ADMIT That They Carry Out False Flag Terror

Preface: Please skip to the end of this essay (entitled
"Why Should I Care?") if you want to see why this issue is important to
the economy, civil rights, and the political causes which are most
important to you.

Governments from around the world admit they carry out false flag terror:

  • A major with the Nazi SS admitted at the Nuremberg trials that - under orders from the chief of the Gestapo - he and some other Nazi operatives faked attacks on their own people and resources which they blamed on the Poles, to justify the invasion of Poland.  Nazi general Franz Halder also testified at the Nuremberg trials that Nazi leader Hermann Goering admitted to setting fire to the German parliament building, and then falsely blaming the communists for the arson
  • The CIA admits
    that it hired Iranians in the 1950's to pose as Communists and stage
    bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its
    democratically-elected prime minister
  • Israel admits
    that an Israeli terrorist cell operating in Egypt planted bombs in
    several buildings, including U.S. diplomatic facilities, then left
    behind "evidence" implicating the Arabs as the culprits (one of the
    bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to identify the
    bombers, and several of the Israelis later confessed) (and see this and this)
  • As admitted by
    the U.S. government, recently declassified documents show that in the
    1960's, the American Joint Chiefs of Staff signed off on a plan to blow up AMERICAN airplanes (using an elaborate plan involving the switching of airplanes), and also to commit terrorist acts on American soil, and then to blame it on the Cubans in order to justify an invasion of Cuba. See the following ABC news report; the official documents; and watch this interview with
    the former Washington Investigative Producer for ABC's World News
    Tonight with Peter Jennings. Official State Department documents show
    that - only nine months before - the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
    and other high-level officials discussed blowing up a consulate in the Dominican Republic in order to justify an invasion of that country
  • The South African Truth and Reconciliation Council found
    that, in 1989, the Civil Cooperation Bureau (a covert branch of the
    South African Defense Force) approached an explosives expert and asked
    him "to participate in an operation aimed at discrediting the ANC [the
    African National Congress] by bombing the police vehicle of the
    investigating officer into the murder incident", thus framing the ANC
    for the bombing
  • An Algerian diplomat and several officers in the Algerian army admit
    that, in the 1990s, the Algerian army frequently massacred Algerian
    civilians and then blamed Islamic militants for the killings (and see this video; and Agence France-Presse, 9/27/2002, French Court Dismisses Algerian Defamation Suit Against Author)
  • According to the Washington Post, Indonesian police admit that
    the Indonesian military killed American teachers in Papua in 2002 and
    blamed the murders on a Papuan separatist group in order to get that
    group listed as a terrorist organization.
  • The well-respected former Indonesian president also admits that the government probably had a role in the Bali bombings
  • As reported by BBC, the New York Times, and Associated Press, Macedonian officials admit
    that the government murdered 7 innocent immigrants in cold blood and
    pretended that they were Al Qaeda soldiers attempting to assassinate
    Macedonian police, in order to join the "war on terror".
  • Former Department of Justice lawyer John Yoo
    suggested in 2005 that the US should go on the offensive against al-Qaeda, having
    “our intelligence agencies create a false terrorist organization. It
    could have its own websites, recruitment centers, training camps, and
    fundraising operations. It could launch fake terrorist operations and
    claim credit for real terrorist strikes, helping to sow confusion
    within al-Qaeda’s ranks, causing operatives to doubt others’ identities
    and to question the validity of communications.”
  • United Press International reported in June 2005:

    intelligence officers are reporting that some of the insurgents in Iraq
    are using recent-model Beretta 92 pistols, but the pistols seem to have
    had their serial numbers erased. The numbers do not appear to have been
    physically removed; the pistols seem to have come off a production line
    without any serial numbers. Analysts speculate
    that agent provocateurs may be using the untraceable weapons even as
    U.S. authorities use insurgent attacks against civilians as evidence of
    the illegitimacy of the resistance

  • Quebec police admitted that, in 2007, thugs carrying rocks to a peaceful protest were actually undercover Quebec police officers
  • At the G20 protests in London in 2009, a British member of parliament saw plain clothes police officers attempting to incite the crowd to violence

Why Should I Care?

You may ask yourself "why should I care?"

You should care because terrorism harms the economy. Specifically, a study by Harvard and the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) points out:

an economic standpoint, terrorism has been described to have four main
effects (see, e.g., US Congress, Joint Economic Committee, 2002).
First, the capital stock (human and physical) of a country is reduced
as a result of terrorist attacks. Second, the terrorist threat induces
higher levels of uncertainty. Third, terrorism promotes increases in
counter-terrorism expenditures, drawing resources from productive
sectors for use in security. Fourth, terrorism is known to affect
negatively specific industries such as tourism.

The Harvard/NBER concludes:

accordance with the predictions of the model, higher levels of
terrorist risks are associated with lower levels of net foreign direct
investment positions, even after controlling for other types of country
risks. On average, a standard deviation increase in the terrorist risk
is associated with a fall in the net foreign direct investment position
of about 5 percent of GDP.


Terrorism has contributed to a decline in the global economy (for example, European Commission, 2001).

And see this.

In addition, you should care because terror causes governments to strip liberties and civil rights from the people:

"This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears he is a protector."
- Plato

"If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy."
- U.S. President James Madison

"Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death".
- Adolph Hitler

of course the people don't want war ... But after all it is the leaders
of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple
matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a
fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship ...
Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of
the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are
being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and
exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."
- Hermann Goering, Nazi leader.


easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of
terror. [The public] will clamor for such laws if their personal
security is threatened".
- Josef Stalin

the political causes you hold most dear will be derailed if false flag
terror is carried out. To see that this is true, let's take a step back
Imagine, if you would, that you were a citizen in Germany
right after the example of false flag terror by the Nazis discussed
above had occurred. Do you believe you could have stopped the
government from invading Poland by reminding Germans that war is bad
and peace is good? Do you imagine you could have stopped the
brownshirts and loss of domestic rights by writing about the
desirability of civil liberties? Do you think that you could have
convinced people that protecting the environment, or addressing human
or civil rights, or helping the poor, or education, or equality, or any other political crusade was more
important than "protecting the Fatherland" when Germans were terrified
for their safety?

Please think about it.

The German
people were whipped up into a state of hysteria and fear, because they
thought they were under attack by Poles and other "bad guys". The
Germans were in shock, and rallied around their "strong" leader (it
wasn't just the bad economy). Without first exposing the truth that the
attacks were false flag attacks - which were largely the source and root cause
of the German people's fears, and which allowed the German parliament
and other institutions to hand Hitler total power - the sweeping away
of good political causes by the wave of fear could not be stopped.

the Nazis might have been derailed and perhaps brought to justice well
before the Nuremberg trials if the false flag hoaxes had been exposed
at the time. The German people could have been spared from the horrors
inflicted on their nation and the world by the Nazis. And sanity and
positive political changes might have prevailed in 1940's-era Germany.

Please think about it . . .

Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.

where's Russian FSB/KGB? they blew up a few buildings in 1999, including 2 in Moscow, which all led to "2nd Chechen War" and election of "strong-man" Putin?

I've spent a lot of time trying to disprove to myself that 911 was not an inside job. I have failed. I spend a lot of time talking to very intelligent, informed friends of mine who simply will not believe that 911 was an inside job. Most of these people are conservatives who recognize that Bush was a failure and that the republicans are frauds. I invariably find that they simply have not spent much time investigating the 911 situation. Why? I don't know. When I first had serious suspicions around 2003 that 911 may have been a false flag operation, I spent hundreds of hours trying to find out the truth. I had to know the truth. Why so many others i respect do not have a similar compulsion to know the truth -I do not know. The 911 operation was perhaps the most significant event in our nation's history. It was a reckless gamble by a bunch of fanatic traitors that will forever alter the course of our nation's history- and not for the better.

Keep talking. I've done the same with my friends. You might be surprised at some of the ones who say something along the lines of "I've known all along". But most won't, at least not yet.

One of my friends said something along the lines of "what you are saying makes sense but it is too horrible to believe, so I choose not to believe it". At least that person was honest about the reason for refusing to acknowledge reality.

True wisdom comes from knowing what is a fact and what is a lie. Vox populi is easily manipulated because people will not make the effort to think. These cases of governments commiting a crime to further their own ends must be eliminated from the realm of future geo-politics. The more justice in a nation the more divine blessings it receives.

There are plenty of these kinds of activities taking place.

But I'm afraid it's a stretch to assume that 9/11 was one of them. It's not so much of a stretch to assume the CIA is selling weapons to insurgents. More likely, however, they've been stolen since so much of what got sent to Iraq was badly managed.

I'm not blind to possibilities. But whenever events of this nature have taken place, those carrying out the activities eventually suffer a form of remorse and SOMEBODY talks. Strangely, several events believed to be carried out by the CIA or the US in general (even by accident):
Flight 800

have yet to see anyone step forward and claim knowledge or responsibility.

I have some knowledge of events in Iraq, due to a friend's being stationed there, which indicate less that the US is promoting insurgent activity, and more that US incompetence allowed quite a bit to occur.

But convincing people who love a conspiracy that the facts are the facts is very hard. They so truly WANT to believe, that they are unwilling to accept fact as a basis for disproving their belief system.
Religions rely on this to keep the more traditional parts of their dogma alive.

History shows us that it takes a good deal of time before someone comes forward.

It's no stretch at all to assume 9/11 was a False Flag Attack. Do some research on PNAC, David Ray Griffin, Stephen Jones (physicist). The 'official' story seems to be the biggest conspiracy out there. How did Osama in a cave plant demolition explosives in Tower 7?

There is a concept known as 'The Big Lie' - an event (false flag) so enormous in scope that no one would dare question the official story. This article mentions one notable 'Big Lie' - the Germans setting fire to the German parliament building - and using the event to justify attacking Poland.

I don't 'love a conspiracy' as you would imply, I love the truth. And when the truth is so obviously different than the official story or lack of a story, someone needs to be held accountable. (That's why I love Zerohedge - they are exposing the truth and identifying the people we need to hold accountable - it's a shame Zerohedge didn't have legal authority to single handedly administer justice.)

Convincing people who cringe at the word 'Conspiracy' and trying to get them to consider anything counter to their belief in the official story is hard. Those who blindly believe what they are told in any (official) story are unwilling to accept fact as a basis for disproving their belief system. That's what makes False Flag operations successful - a population who wouldn't dare consider anything from the official story.

Watch this 2-minute video and tell me why this isn't a demolition. How did a man in a cave get operatives through all the security in WTC7 with explosives to blow it up? Tell me why WTC7 was never mentioned in the Official 9/11 Commission Report? If a 47-story building blew up anywhere in America it would be top news for months - this one never gets mentioned.

Your question:  How did a man in a cave get operatives through all the security in WTC7 with explosives to blow it up?"

A:  Bush was running security for the WTC.

Come on, 9/11 has not even had an enquiry held, other than the one where the commitee said it was not a whitewash?!? what is that about. WTC7 falling despite being a building away from the other two? and the building in between still standing with minor damage?!? Lieberman on tape telling the fire chief to "pull it down"?!? and it just happened to house; CIA, ?!?the Pentagon being hit by a jumbo jet but no fuselage left?, no engines?, no bodies? and the hole in the building significantly smaller than the plane?!?. I am dumb but not that dumb!.

I'm really surprised the article didn't mention 911, the most recent False Flag attack with the most continuing and material negative impacts. Most Americans don't even realize that 3 towers collapsed on 911; WTC7 being the third building. WTC7 wasn't hit by a plane, collapsed as a perfect demolition. What foreign terrorists got inside WTC7 to plant explosives? What Americans had time to plant them on 911 after the attack? Google David Ray Griffin, PNAC, stephen jones 911 and you'll find information as good as what's here at zerohedge. Here's a starter video for anyone not familiar with this stuff - please take 2 minutes to watch this.

Good article. There is plenty of evidence of this and many more atrocities against the common man.

i ever wondered why the germans did follow Hitler all the way. Now i know, today the same thing could easily happen again, maybe other countries are more endangered then Germany, cause we were teached for 60 years that this must be avoided in the future. Most people dont give a fuck what the government does, as long as they are save (they have jobs, a house or a nice neighborhood). People are afraid to loose their status quo, they will follow anyone who promises to defend it in tough times.

I cant wait for a total collapse of the current western civilization and our stupid gadgets, cars, kitchens, fashions and all the other stupid piles of crap.

Webster Griffin Tarpley, if you don't know.

9/11 no doubt...the WTC '93 as well....

you all know what tonkin was....and pearl harbor....northwoods?

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, MLK, and Bobby.....

OKC was, they found undetonated bombs in the Murrow building..... 

The underwear bomber for sure.....

 In the interest of moving the agenda of the empowered elite of this world, it seems no act, however vile, is off the table... while actions taken are the result of conscious choice, at some point catastrophic, unintended consequence is a significant probability.

Funny, the guy left out 9-11...the most elaborate false flag of our time.

 Don't be silly.They read everything they want to anyway.And they can see through the walls too!

 If you think you have any privacy, you are living in a dreamworld.

Yeah, I've been hearing rumors that these new flat screen monitors are actually a two way monitor, or "camera" that can be accessed remotely. Kinda like what happening right now at Harriton High School, PA.

Cistercian's picture

On the school district...they are in trouble!Now think how easily the power to invade the privacy of the students corrupted them....and think about the vastly superior scope and power of the agencies here in the US.That much power is dangerously corrosive.


 There is no telling what some of the people behind the curtain know....or what they are capable of.

Cistercian's picture

 I don't think that is a danger unless you have one with a built in camera.If you have a camera attached or built in...good luck.

 I am serious about the seeing thru walls.Far infrared and very short wavelength microwaves are obvious choices.I am afraid it is currently impossible to be paranoid enough on this count.Drones and satellites provide great images too.And the problem is those with these capabilities operate for the most part in the "black" world.Consequently, there is far too little oversight.It is amazing what "national security" conceals.

This sounds exactly like a bad divorce and custody fight, doesn't it?

I don't disagree with your basic premise, which seems to be that false flag attacks are an excuse to strip civil liberties. They clearly are. What I have a problem with is the sensationalist tripe about shooting down an aircraft. The implication is that they would kill US citizens to accomplish this. If you read the declassified docs, this is clearly not the plan. It is one of about 9 different scenarios and the US citizens would be safely on the ground when the unmanned plane was blown up. Still evil, but not as evil as killing your own citizens to create a FF incident.

then where, pray tell are the US citizens, who were on the 911 planes?  guantanamo ? diego garcia?  abu graib?

The US gov't would never lie like that.

We fought back against those N. Veitnam's that attacked our boats in the gulf of Tonkin, we also paid back those Iraqs' that helped wit 9-11.

The ease with which Yoo suggests creating a terrorist organization is remarkable.  While he doesn't say it, such an organization would need to carry out some actual attacks in order to establish some cred.

Yoo is a terrorist. Anyone who can twist constitutional law into torture is the ultimate terrorist

i have little doubt that false flag events happen (are happening).

i have little doubt that wikipedia is not the reference it appears to be.
