There is nothing new about false flag terrorism. It is a widely practiced military doctrine deployed to engineer an enemy where none previously existed.

And yet, despite the comprehensive historical evidence of false flag terrorism, when tragedies arise which demonstrate the hallmarks of such terrorism, the notion that the tragedy was engineered becomes a taboo topic -- and governments involved race to a war footing.

Domestically, the security apparatus is empowered as rights and freedoms are sacrificed in the name of "safety", and externally, aggressive warfare is reinforced or launched.

Dr. Graeme McQueen, founding member of the Centre for Peace Studies at McMaster University, Canada, and author of The 2001 Anthrax Deception, decodes terrorist events using this framework:

Threat

Unity

Response

In the context of the October 22, 2014 Ottawa, Canada, shootings, for example, the threat was the shooting at the War Memorial, and the subsequent shootings at the House of Commons, where Canadian politicians were in lockdown.

After the shooter was killed, a sense of unity amongst Canada's politicians was highlighted when then Prime Minister Steven Harper embraced party leaders Justin Trudeau and Thomas Mulcair.

The response to the shooting was immediate. Internally, Canada's security apparatus was expanded with the passing of C-13, C-44, (and eventually Anti-Terrorism Bill C-51), while externally, Canada was put on a war-footing, ISIS was identified as the enemy, and bomber planes were dispatched to join the illegal bombing campaign in Syria.

Everything happened too quickly. Senator Mobina Jaffer, who endured the shock of the shootings in the House of Commons, later explained:

"This was not a terrorist attack, what happened to us " people are laughing at us around the world. This was some young man who had mental issues. I know his mosque, because I helped build it."

There is good reason for skepticism.
