In a 2009 broadcast of Chris Matthew’s Hardball, Matthews discusses the gap between Obama and the American people with former advisor to Clinton, Mark Penn, in a disturbing interview. Penn draws the similarity between Clinton and Obama’s low approval ratings and states that Obama may need an event similar to the Oklahoma City bombing (OKC) to boost his support amongst the American people.
“Remember, President Clinton reconnected through Oklahoma, right,” Penn states. “And President right now, he seems removed. It wasn’t until that speech that he really clicked with the American public. Obama needs a similar kind of happening.”
This claim that hundreds of Americans need to die or be injured to make Americans run to their leader is outrageous and was not questioned by Chris Matthews who claims to ask the hard questions on his show “Hardball”.
But Mark Penn is not the only former Clinton official to voice that America needs a terror attack to help the president. Former economic advisor to Clinton, Robert Shapiro stated, “He [Obama] has to find some way between now and November of demonstrating that he is a leader who can command confidence and, short of a 9/11 event or an Oklahoma City bombing, I can’t think of how he could do that.”
These comments are treasonous and deserve to be investigated further. The claims by these officials would suggest that terrorism exists in the deck of political cards if public opinion needs to be adjusted to continue the agenda.
On a broadcast of Glenn Beck, Beck examines the interview on Hardball and says, “They are setting up an Oklahoma City.” Beck implies in his broadcast that he or dissenters of big government will be blamed for the next attack.
But are there any basis to the claim that governments stage crises or false-flag operations (operations carried out by governments made to seem as though it were carried out by other entities to sway public opinion or gain support)?
According to Seymour Hersh a Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist, “neocons” met with Vice-President Dick Cheney on how to jumpstart a war with Iran.
“There was a dozen ideas proffered about how to trigger a war,” Hersh recalls. “The one that interested me the most was why don’t we build — we in our shipyard — build four or five boats that look like Iranian PT boats. Put Navy seals on them with a lot of arms. And next time one of our boats goes to the Straits of Hormuz, start a shoot-up.”
The news of dead Navy seals would enrage Americans as they call on their president to attack the “evil” Iranians, just as their leaders have called for.
The idea that governments stage crises to start wars is recognized by many historians. According to an article in the The Telegraph, “Historians find ‘proof’ that Nazis burnt Reichstag.” The article states that historians have found no proof that Communists burned down the Reichstag as claimed by the Nazis. After reviewing 50,000 documents in archives from East Germany and the Soviets, they concluded that the event that Hitler used to launch his war and his tyrannical clamp down on Germany was in fact staged by the Nazis.
Though many Americans could accept the fact that other governments could stage a false-flag, none would think it was possible for elements within their own government could be behind something so outrageous or nefarious.
In a declassified military document titled, “Operation Northwoods,” elements of the US government drafted plans to stage a false-flag event to provide the reason to attack Cuba. An article by ABC on the document stated, “In the early 1960s, America’s top military leaders reportedly drafted plans to kill innocent people and commit acts of terrorism in U.S. cities to create public support for a war against Cuba.”
The operation called for blowing up a US ship, attempts to hijack commercial airplanes, arresting Cuban agents to make the attack appear legit, and creating a communist Cuban terror campaign in Miami and Washington.
Such an event would enrage American leaders, invite the support of the international community, and frighten Americans who would call on their leaders to avenge the dead and keep them safe.
Since 2001 the US has witnessed 9/11, the Forthood Shooting, and the Christmas Day (Underwear) bomber attempt. These events have the same person in common, the number three in al Qaeda, Anwar al-Awlaki. According to Fox News and CBS News, al-Awlaki met at the Pentagon as part of an “outreach program” to the Taliban after 9/11. No where in the articles do they mention he was at the very least questioned about 9/11 or other previous attacks. It is very suspicious that al-Awlaki was invited to dine at the Pentagon and he is wanted for links 9/11.
The events surrounding 9/11 also cause suspicion, but deserve a complete article to themselves. Briefly, there is the fact that the Bush administration was opposed to the creation of a panel for months until the White House and Congress could agree on the terms of the investigation. There is also the fact that the Bush administration had plans to invade Afghanistan, MSNBC, and plans to attack Iraq, CBS News, prior to 9/11. According to Newsweek five of the alleged hijackers may have trained at US military bases. In addition Pakistani ISI General Ahmed met with the Senior Joint Chief of Staff right before 9/11, and Ahmed then funneled $100,000 to the head hijacker Mohammed Atta, according to Times of India. On 9/11 World Trade Center 7, the third high-rise to collapse that day, was “pulled” according lease holder Larry Silverstein.
In addition to all this, there are hours of testimony from firefighters, news reporters and first responders about secondary explosions in the buildings, that were completely ignored by the 911 Commission, though 6 of the ten members have voiced doubts about the governments account.
There is a strong case for the fact that elements within governments do conduct false flag events to sway public opinion. If needed, they can create the problem, the public reacts, and then the government offers the solution after the people run to them for answers. This concept of problem, reaction, solution originates from the Hegelian Dialectic. False flag operations are carried out and then blamed on the political opposition or other opposing groups as reason to destroy or conquer them. According to Hitler this can be manifested in the form of staged terrorism: “Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death.”
