With all of the anti-Russia sentiment being floated by the mainstream media, it’s worrisome to think that at one point in history, the United States was on the brink of initiating World War III itself.
The newly released JFK files, made possible thanks to the Trump administration, shows that the United States government seriously considered manufacturing a false flag attack using Russian aircraft as a pretense to starting a war, according to The Daily Caller.
One document described a meeting on March 22, 1962, to discuss “the question raised by the attorney general on the possibility of US manufacture or acquisition of Soviet aircraft.” Consisting of several key government officials including Attorney General Robert Kennedy, CIA Director John McCone, National Security Advisor McGeorge Bundy and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Lyman Lemnitzer, the meetings assessed the possibility of utilizing fake aircraft to justify a war against the Soviet Union.
Although not members, both President Kennedy as well as Secretary of State Dean Rusk would attend these meetings.
“There is a possibility that such aircraft could be used in a deception operation designed to confuse enemy planes in the air, to launch a surprise attack against enemy installations or in a provocation operation in which Soviet aircraft would appear to attack US or friendly installations in order to provide an excuse for US intervention,” read the document.
This was not the first time that the notion of using fake Soviet aircraft in a “false flag” attack was speculated. Robert Dallek’s book An Unfinished Life: John F. Kennedy, 1917-1963, revealed this possibility as well, saying that the idea was first suggested by CIA Director McCone. It’s one detail that differs from the official documents, which says that it was Attorney General Kennedy who first brought it up.
The CIA also considered using a false flag attack where plastic bombs were exploded in carefully selected areas in order to ferment anti-communist sentiments in the United States.
“We could develop a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington. The terror campaign could be pointed at Cuban refugees seeking haven in the United States,” said an April 1962 report sent by Gen. Edward Landsdale to Gen. Maxwell Taylor.
“Exploding a few plastic bombs in carefully chosen spots, the arrest of a Cuban agent and the release of prepared documents substantiating Cuban involvement also would be helpful in projecting the idea of an irresponsible government,” the report continued.
President Trump authorized the release of 2,800 classified files related to President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in October, as reported by Fox News. Although there are some files that are still withheld because of security concerns, the President has promised that once a 180-day review period has passed, he will order a public disclosure.
The newly released JFK files revealed that the US government almost purposefully started a war with Russia. Should the government ever use false-flag attacks?
“At the end of that period, I will order the public disclosure of any information that the agencies cannot demonstrate meets the statutory standard for continued postponement of disclosure,” Mr. Trump wrote, adding, “I have no choice” to “accept those redactions rather than allow potentially irreversible harm to our nation’s security.”
As the American public continues to discover more hidden truths that have been kept secret, the Trump administration is proving their commitment to being as transparent as possible.
