It is said that history repeats itself, unless we learn from it. Was the "War on Terrorism" incited by lessons not learned in US History? Some say yes.
In March of 1962, the highest-ranking officers of each branch of the military, known more popularly as the Joint Chiefs of Staff, proposed a risky plan that would forever change the landscape of diplomatic international relations and forever cast doubt on a government willing to subvert its laws, and stage-manage its sovereigns.
The Northwoods Document, as it is now called, was not executed at the time of its inception. However, it was never forgotten. The document outlines step-by-step plans on how to mislead the American public into a full-scale war on terrorism and decisive invasion of Cuba. Top military leaders proposed all this and more in the name of spreading democracy and restoring free government to the impoverished people of a desolate land. Does any of this sound familiar?
Speaking on the Northwoods Document in the newly released documentary "One Nation Under Siege," Dave vonKleist of The Power Hour radio program uses logic and reasoning to propose some very tough questions about our current federal government and their collectively corrupt state-of-mind. If the Joint Chiefs had a plan on paper 50 years ago to substitute aircraft and shoot one down in order to manipulate public opinion, is it possible that they would do that in today's world?

The plan, as proposed by the Joint Chiefs, suggests that a U.S.A.F. airliner be painted and disguised as a commercial passenger plane and converted to an unmanned remote controlled drone or UAV as they are known in today's terminology. Mock passengers would board an alternate plane under carefully prepared aliases. The empty copy-cat-commercial plane would eventually be shot down where eyewitnesses would be available to observe, report and perpetuate the official government version of the story. Except for the loss of life and the National landmarks, this scenario sounds amazingly similar the terror attacks of September 11, 2001.
The Northwoods Document is extremely explicit and well thought out. Every detail and possible scenario is anticipated - complete with solutions and cover stories. Other tactics included:
- Plan a series of well-coordinated incidents in and around Guantanamo, giving a genuine appearance of being executed by hostile Cuban Forces
- Blow up a U.S. ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba (similarity to USS Cole)
- Lob mortar shells onto base from outside, damaging the installation (similarity to Pentagon)
- Develop a Communist Cuban Terror campaign in the Miami Area, as well as other cities in Florida and in Washington
- Plant friendly, uniformed Cubans to stage an attack on the base, then capture them
- Sink a ship near harbor entrance, then conduct a "funeral" for "victims"
- Create an incident making it appear that Communist Cuban MIGs destroy a USAF aircraft in an unprovoked attack
These are but a few of the macabre strategies suggested by the Joint Chiefs to further push the war-buttons of unsuspecting, but very compliant, Americans.
Director William Lewis expands on this area of thought by reminding us that on the morning of September 11, 2001 Fox News interviewed one of its own employees who was a witness to the second tower jet strike. Mr. Mark Burnback stated that the alleged commercial airliner "had no windows on the side." The Fox News anchorperson then suggested that perhaps this was not a commercial aircraft after all. Lewis goes on to mention there were other witnesses testifying to this fact on other networks, as well. Burnback's testimony can be heard in director Lewis' earlier documentary "911 In Plane Site," the first September 11 expose' to show collections of news footage from the first few hours of the attack. The official version of September 11 quickly disintegrates under careful scrutiny and the observance of basic logic.
Former Major General Albert Stubblebine, during his military career, measured Soviet equipment from photos. In the newly released shock-doc, "One Nation Under Siege," he makes some very astounding comments about the terror attack on the pentagon. A clip of his observations can be seen at undersiegemovie.com
As he puts it... "What's going on?"
It is our duty, as Americans, to require accountability for what is happening both here and abroad. With last years passage of the reauthorization of the USA PATRIOT Act, our perpetual "War on Terrorism," the ever-mounting deaths of our sons and daughters in a war that is clearly not ours, and our escalating loss of liberties, Americans MUST finally realize that our system of government has been permanently contaminated by the lust and greed of men who have way too much power and too little regard for the U.S. Bill of Rights.
It is time for Americans to become vigilant in this "War on Terrorism" or they may find that the price for unchecked complacency is merciless slavery.
