Counter-Intelligence: Part III - The Strategy of Tension from S DN on Vimeo.
For students of war, there are many overlapping strategies for the defeat of the enemy. The first tactic is well understood: physical violence between opposing armies. The second, far more mysterious is psychological warfare. In psychological operations, the target is the mind…the beliefs, motives and ultimately behaviors of entire societies.
James Bamford discovered the Operation North Woods document and included it in his book “Body of Secrets”. In 1962, the Joint Chiefs of Staff drew up and approved what may be te most corrupt plan ever created by the U.S. government. In the name of anti-Communism, they proposed launching a secret and bloody war of terrorism against their own country in order to trick the American public into supporting an ill-conceived war they intended to launch against Cuba.
Among the suggestions, a fake hijacking of remote controlled planes to be blamed on Cuba. The blowing up of an American ship also to be blamed on Cuba. And a terror campaign in Florida carried out by anti-Castro exiles to be blamed on Cuba. The most remarkable thing about Operation North Woods itself was that it was approved by every single member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the highest ranking military officers in the land. Only when it reached the desks of Robert McNamara, and JFK was the plan nixed.
Are we just supposed to sit back and accept outrageous lies and absurd coincidence? Because whoever questions the official stories is labeled a "conspiracy theorist". It's not used against people who ascribe conscious intent to the poor, the middle-class, or third world countries. It's used against anyone who claims the wealthy people in power calculate, collude, organize in conscious pursuit of wealth and power... putting themselves above the law. Yet, these same people who condemn conspiracy theory, create preposterous conspiracy theories without any evidence at all (or created evidence) all the time.
"Conspiracy theory" is the way mass media, government. academics, etc, discredit individuals who apply critical thinking skills. It's a form of propaganda.
Counter-Intelligence: IV - Necrophilous from S DN on Vimeo.
“The passionate attraction to all that is dead, decayed, putrid, sickly; it is the passion to transform that which is alive into something unalive; to destroy for the sake of destruction; the exclusive interest in all that’s purely mechanical. It is the passion to tear apart living structures.” – Eric Fromm The Necrophilous Character
School of the Americas
Since 1946, The School of Americas functioned as the primary training ground for the teaching of terrorism. In 2000, the school was closed down only to reopen one month later as the the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSC). The SOA has trained more than 60,000 Latin American soldiers and policemen since 1946 who have been responsible for the worst acts of terrorism in the Western hemisphere within the last 50 years. Among its graduates are notorious dictators, Manuel Noriega of Panama, Leopoldo Galtieri of Argentina, and former Bolivian dictator Hugo Banzer Suárez.
Described in official reports as an annex to CIA training base, Harvey Point is a lesser known training facility for domestic and foreign intelligence personnel in Virginia. The New York Times reported that Harvey Point trained 18,000 foreign intelligence operatives from 50 different countries. Trained at this facility were, El Salvador's death squads chief, Roberto D'Aubuisson, Egypt's intelligence directorate, Colombian counter insurgency personnel and Arab cadres who later joined Osama Bin Laden's forces fighting the Soviets in Afghanistan.
“But what counter-insurgency really comes down to is the protection of the capitalists back in America, their property and their privilege.” – Philip Agee, CIA Diary p.562
