This post is to organize all posts dealing with Operation Northwoods, the 1962 military plan to basically committ acts of terrorism and blame Castro's Cuba to trigger war and regime change there. It was pitched to President Kennedy's people but was never implemented and covered up until 2001.

I'll start with chapter I of my book "Scenario 12-E: the philosophy, the technology, and the cover story behind Shadow 9/11," a short chapter posted in three parts. Given the importance of the Northwoods precedent, there will eventually be more material added later.

“Casualty lists in U.S. newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation.” - Joint Chiefs of Staff, 1962

I: Lemnitzer the Landmine: 1960-63, the Joint Chiefs and the White House in tense times.

II: Special Distribution: The Plan: Operation Northwoods, its ominous recommendations, Lemnitzer's pitch and the immediate aftermath (ie Lemnitzer tansferred and the affair covered up).

III: Northwoods 2001? The curious revelation of Northwoods decades later and just months before 9/11 and the Acting JCS Chairman caught in the thick of it.
