Did You Know
During the 1960's, the Joint Chiefs of Staff proposed to Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara that the American military shoot innocent people on American streets, sink boats carrying refugees from Cuba and carry out terrorist attacks in Washington, Miami and other key locations and then blame it on Cuban agents. The intent of the plan, which they called Operation Northwoods, was to provide an excuse to invade Cuba.
McNamara fortunately had the good sense to pass on the proposal but it is nonetheless illustrative of the mindset of those who guide American military policy. Makes you wonder about all the "terrorism" going on these days.
