Chuck, you describe the assassination of John F. Kennedy as a "mere preview of coming attractions." Charles notes George Michael Evica's "Terrible First Sound".
Lemnitzer submitted Operation Northwoods to McNamara March 1962. JFK told Lemnitzer such action toward Cuba was not happening. Lemnitzer was SACEUR that November and, per Richard Cottrell in Gladio: NATO"s Dagger at the Heart of Europe, Lemnitzer repaid the favor November 1963.
Jacob Hornberger points up the military nature of the autopsy, and we see the hand of milint in the event. Can there be any doubt the bitterness of the Bay of Pigs, the irritation at perceived caving in re Berlin Wall, missile crisis, peace speech June '63 in the context of test ban, covert communication with Khrushchev and Castro, and the supreme offense: withdrawal from Vietnam assured the willing participation before, during or after of military and intelligence leadership.
The Yellow Brick Road to perpetual war was bullt by the willing handmaidens of the defense establishment--with a smirk at the Orwellian irony of "defense".
The war was joined over JFK's dead body after a ritual slaughter on a Texas street at high noon with the successor a hundred feet behind to be the first subsequent chief executive to receive the object lesson on the expendability of the temporary resident of the Oval Office.
Northwoods demonstrating the willingness of the mailed fist to sacrifice civilians for national security.
The multi-layered rationales for censorship and the Big Lie: that the Red Plot must be concealed from the people, that a lone gunman was solely responsible, that the Kennedy family blah blah blah di blah.
There was no need for the war--what's the worst that could have happened? Communists would take over Vietnam--and yet: they did, but with a decade of horror and carnage forever darkening the national soul.
There's a way to figure that as not merely inconsequential to the ends of power, but empowering: war, war for any pretext, with terrible cost, with no discernible benefit, commenced on the murder of the objecting leader and the false-flag of a fictional attack, lie upon lie, forever, amen.
We have Orwell's great paean to Hitler and Stalin as experimenters on the path to pursuit of pure power described by O'Brien.
Hitler who, double or nothing, emerged from the bunker to place his hand on the shoulders of the boys left between the Red Army and his crushed thousand-year reich.
Stalin who remarked a single death was a tragedy; a million, a statistic.
Two dozen witnesses saw John Doe Number Two with Timothy McVeigh. A witness saw placement of additional explosives in the structure. German military intelligence operative Strassmeier was allowed to leave the country. A doppleganger rental van was photographed on an army base. Bomb squads knew something was up--they were deployed in the area in advance. And the supposed prime mover (in truth a follower) wrote his sister (letter in 1998 NYT) he was recruited for a covert force used in domestic operations--of course he was burned in the manner of such tradecraft.
An inspiration for Putin's 1999 bombing of Moscow apartments, killing civilians for war and election. Alexander Litvinenko, Blowing up Moscow.
Four planes fly into dead zones to shut off transponders. Two are automatically homed on towers prepped with thermite. One is disappeared while a nonplane missile hits the Pentagon where it's been strengthened. Two wars ensue in the shadow of a Patriot Act emulating the Enabling Act following the Reichstag Fire of 1933.
We may expect a real barn-burner in the next two years. Iran may play if only as a scapegoat for an event, perhaps an EMP over CONUS.
The net would be silenced and the pursuit of troublemakers undertaken with data from surveillance surfaced by Snowden.
The thrust vectors have been plain. The public policies promoted by a Cass Sunstein in company with a blanket use of national security for every extraconstitutional crime domestically and exploit on foreign soil.
Brzezinski quashed publication of a version of Lobaczewski's work.
Brzezinski and Gates wrote the 2004 CFR paper Iran: Time for a New Approach. Kissinger two years ago suggested Iran would be a future ally. Surely its willingness to fight ISIS is fascinating--considering ISIS is a wholly-owned subsidiary of a consortium including but not limited to USA, Turkey, Qatar, Saudi--soon setting up shop in the recently destabilized Libya.
Contention in the quadrilateral: basic 1984 protocol.
Oceania has always been allied with Eurasia and at war with Eastasia.
Northwoods was rejected by a president who had to be killed and revised in history as not really withdrawing from Vietnam.
It is our job to harry the many behind the curtain.
On earth God's work must truly be our own.
