The Northwood Documents

Northwood: A Plan For Terror To Justify War

Associated Retired Aviatlion Professionals

The information your about to learn is shocking. In 1962, members of our own government actually conspired to cause a big disaster to anger the American people. Shooting down a commercial airplane was one suggestion. This was in an attempt to justify U.S. involvement in the Cuban Bay of Pigs. Thankfully, Kennedy refused. The horrifying implications of such evil documents as Northwood can only lead us to question such disasters as TWA Flight 800, the Oklahoma City Bombing and 911 even further. We are still waiting for answers from the government, but we have been given lies.

The Northwood plan for staging phony attacks on the U.S. to justify invading Cuba was developed by the Joint Chiefs of Staff in 1962.  It was never implemented, perhaps due to fear of Soviet retaliation.

The Northwood documents were obtained by the National Security Archive:

"an independent non-governmental research institute and library located at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C.  The Archive collects and publishes declassified documents acquired through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).  A tax-exempt public charity, the Archive receives no U.S. government funding; its budget is supported by publication royalties and donations from foundations and individuals."


Many people believe that the Bush administration took advantage of 9-11 in order to launch the war and impose repressive measures at home.

In reality Washington did not just take advantage of 9-11. Rather, it instigated 9-11, just as the Joint Chiefs of Staff proposed instigating fake attacks on Americans in 1962 - to create a climate where military action seems justified.

As for the campaign of repression at home - with its nightmarish Homeland Security, its assault on legal guarantees, and its star chamber Military Tribunals - this campaign is in part intended to silence the millions of people who suspect that Bush and other top leaders were involved in some way in making 9-11 happen.

Some people ask us: how can you believe that our leaders are capable of such cynicism, murderous cruelty, ruthlessness and dishonesty?

That is why Operation Northwood was so important. For we now know that in 1962 the Joint Chiefs of Staff proposed staging phony attacks to destroy U.S. property, killing Cuban refugees and U.S. citizens, in order to create a wave of indignation and rage, to justify an invasion of Cuba that could have killed hundreds of thousands of people and possibly led to nuclear war. --by Jared Israel

"Most people prefer to believe their leaders are just and fair even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because most people don't want to admit they don't have the courage to do anything about it. Most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all" -Michael Rivero
