Declassified Documents Prove that the U.S. was ready to fake terrorist attacks to justify war with CubaSubmitted by PA Paul Pal on Sat, 01/12/2013 - 10:34
I know that this is old news to many but it is new to me and maybe to others who have awoken recently. Thank you for your patience if you've heard of this before.
For those who want proof that our government might not have our best interest at heart or those who cannot believe that our government would ever fake 9/11 to justify war with Iraq, I present Operation Northwoods(1962) to you for your consideration.
One of the most foreboding excerpts from the Operation Northwoods document which told of how the government would enrage the American public and justify war with Cuba:
The plan called for U.S. personnel to disguise themselves as agents of the Cuban government and to engage in terrorist attacks on the U.S. base at Guantanamo Bay. It also called for terrorist attacks within the United States that would be conducted by pro-U.S. forces disguising themselves as Cuban agents. One of the most fascinating aspects of Operation Northwoods involved the proposed hijacking of an American passenger plane. The JCS proposed that a real plane containing American passengers would be hijacked by friendly forces disguised as Cuban agents. The plane would drop down off the radar screen and be replaced by a pilotless aircraft, which would crash, purportedly killing all the passengers. Under the plan, the real passenger plane would be secretly flown back to the United States.

http://abcnews.go.com/US/story?id=92662&page=1#.TxsGQG_Ox2B - Story reported by the mainstream media 4 months before 9/11 and, ironically enough, "forgotten" by them after the 9/11 attacks.
Do a web search for Operation Northwoods and Operation Mongoose for more information. The actual document, according to the sources in the articles, was entitled, "Justification for US Military Intervention in Cuba (TS)". (TS for Top Secret)
Don't get caught up in the distractions of how and why a government-planned 9/11 attack could have happened, just look at the past factual intent of some of our "leaders"(U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff) who are supposed to be our servants.
Why would a government agency willing to deceive the American public to justify war with Cuba hesitate to create a reason to go to war with Iraq, Afghanistan, and, dare I say, the rights of all Americans?
