This video clip from the Alex Jones documentary ”Terrorstorm: A History of Government Sponsored Terrorism” is a summary of historical examples of governments staging ”false flag” operations— being attacks carried out for the purpose of being blamed on another country.
In this clip, six examples of the use of false flag terrorist attacks by the global elite are examined, including Adolf Hitler's use of the the tactic, Operation Ajax in Iran, Operation Gladio in Europe, the Gulf of Tonkin Attacks, the bombing of Cubana Flight 455, and the Attack on the USS Liberty.
Following is a written transcript of the information in the video clip:
Adolph Hitler's Use of False Flag Attacks
One of the best known cases of a false flag [operation] was carried out by the newly elected Adolph Hitler on February 27, 1933. Nazi documents uncovered at the end of Word War II, as well as testimony during the Nurenburg (SP) trails revealed what many historians already suspected— that Herman Goring had set fire to the ”Reichstag,” [which was] the German Parliament Building.
The Nazis then produced their patsy— Marinis Vanderlubbe— an extremely mentally handicapped young man who was found rolling around in an alleyway behind the Reichstag naked. Vanderlubbe was then taken to a Nazi show trial, found guilty and then sentenced to death. He was beheaded on January 10, 1934.
Using the crisis he created to pass laws similar to the USA Patriot Act, Hitler became dictator and set his sights on the world.
By March of 1939, Hitler had already seized Czechoslovakia. Having gained both Austria and Czechoslovakia, Hitler desired to move east against Poland. But he did not want to look like the aggressor. Hitler needed an excuse for attacking Poland. It was Heinrich Himmler who came up with a plan. Thus the operation was code named ”Operation Himmler.” On the night of August 31, 1939, the Germans took an unknown prisoner from one of the concentration camps, dressed him in a Polish uniform, took him to the town of Gleiwitz on the German-Polish border, and shot him. The staged scene with the dead prisoner dressed in a Polish uniform was supposed to appear as a Polish attack against a German radio station. German radio, newspapers, and newsreels were flooded with images of what appeared to be a dead Polish soldier who had dared attack to Reich. Now Hitler had his excuse to invade Poland, and the nightmare of World War II had begun.
In 1953, the Central Intelligence Agency working in tandem with MI6 overthrew the democratically elected leader of Iran, Dr. Mohammad Mossadeq. Mossadeq had been educated in the West, was pro-America, and had driven Communist forces out of the North of his Country shortly after being elected in 1951. Mossadeq then nationalized the oil fields, and denied British Petroleum a monopoly.
The CIA's own history department at CIA.GOV details how U.S. and British intelligence agents carried out terror attacks, and subsequently blamed them on Mossadeq.
In the late 1990's, large sections of operation AJAX were declassified. The field commander of operation AJAX was none other than the grandson of President Theodore Roosevelt, Kermit Roosevelt. Before his death in 2000, Roosevelt went public to the media, bragging about his patriotism in carrying out terror attacks in Iran and blaming it on the Government.
The provocations included propaganda, demonstrations, bribery, agents of influence and false flag operations. They bombed the home of a prominent religious leader, and blamed it on Mossadeq. They attacked mosques, machine gunned crowds, and then handed out thousands of handbills claiming Mossadeq had done it. The handbills read ”Up With Mossadeq, Up With Communism, Down With Allah.” Dr. Mohammad Mossadeq was incarcerated for the duration of his life, and fared better than many of his Ministers, who were executed just days after the successful coup for crimes that the MI6 and CIA had committed. The CIA then formed the dreaded Iranian secret Police, ”SAVAK,” and a 25 year rein of terror and torture then commenced.
The operation was seen by Western intelligence agencies as a huge success. The CIA then successfully used the exact same technique in scores of countries to overthrow elected governments and dictators alike.
Operation Gladio was an umbrella name for literally hundreds of bombings carried out by Western intelligence agencies and NATO in Italy, Western Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia. From 1947 to 1981, Italian Presidents have gone public admitting Operation Gladio targeted innocent civilians and was to be blamed on leftists and Communists. On November, 22, 1990, The European Parliament had a resolution condemning the activities of Operation Gladio. The former Italian Intelligence Chief has come clean concerning Gladio's actions as well. Many other countries have declassified documents concerning Gladio.
It is part of the public record that [the United States government] and other Western governments targeted trains, busses, schools.. several times operatives zeroed in on school busses, knowing that images of dead children would get the population angry and ready to relinquish their liberties. A particularly bloody bombing at the central station of Bologna, Italy in the morning of August 2, 1980, which killed 85 people and wounded more than 200, caused some officials to break their silence and begin to expose just a small part of this wicked operation.

The Gulf of Tonkin Incident
In the summer of 1964, President Lyndon Baines Johnson needed a pretext to commit the American people to the already expanding covert war in Southeast Asia. In November of 2001 the LBJ Presidential Library and Museum released tapes of phone conversations with the President and then defense secretary Robert Macnemera, where they openly discussed plans to use the staged Gulf of Tonkin incident as a pretext to expand the war.
Then in late 2005 the National Security Agency declassified its own official history of the Gulf of Tonkin, and admitted that intelligence agency officers have deliberately skewed the intelligence and claimed that Vietnamese patrol boats have attacked US destroyers on August 4, 1964, when in reality they had done nothing, even while being fired upon by U.S. forces. Congress then authorized the Gulf of Tonkin resolution. The Tonkin lie paved the way for over 58 thousand American deaths, and over a million and a half dead Vietnamese.
Cubana Flight 455
On October 6, 1976, two time bombs made of C-4 planted on a Douglas DC-8 aircraft exploded, killing all 73 people on board, in the most deadly act of airline terrorism in the Western hemisphere until September 11, 2001. The plane was carrying Olympic athletes from three countries, including gold medal winners from Cuba.
Declassified FBI and CIA documents show the convicted bombers of the flight had been given U.S. visas just days before the attack, and they were in the employ of the U.S. Government.

The Israeli Attack on the USS Liberty
In the early 1960's, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff L.L. Lemnitzer concocted a plan for false flag operations as a pretext to invade Cuba and for war with the Soviet Union. In Operation Northwoods, they planned to hijack jets by remote control, crash them, and blame the attack on Cuba. There are many other terrorist attacks they planned to carry out that were contained within the document.
On scenario mentioned was the destruction of a U.S. Naval vessel that was to be blamed on a foreign power as a pretext for war with any enemy they picked. President Lyndon Banes Johnson went operational with Northwoods on June 8, 1967, during the Six Day War. During the Six Day War between Israel and the Arab nations, the USS Liberty was sent by Johnson to collect electronic intelligence in the Eastern Mediterranean. The clearly marked US intelligence ship was fourteen miles off the coast of Israel in international waters.
Israeli surveillance aircraft flew low over the ship, and clearly identified it as an American vessel. At 2:00 pm that afternoon, the USS Liberty was attacked by three Mirage-3 fighter bombers. From the onset of the attack, the fighter bombers were jamming US signals. Not only were they jamming US signals specifically, they were also unmarked— the only unmarked aircraft in Israel's arsenal. The fighter bombers strafed the ship with their cannons, and dropped conventional munitions and Napalm on the ship repeatedly from stem to stern.
After the Mirages had done their work, the ship was hit by medium bomber [aircraft], carrying Napalm and other munitions like White Phosphorous. The USS Liberty was then attacked by thee Israeli torpedo boats, bearing Israeli flags. The torpedo gunboats opened fire with high caliber machine guns and launched torpedos. A single torpedo struck the ship, blowing a hole in both sides— entering the ship and leaving a thirty foot exit hole when it exploded. Then the torpedo boats began strafing life rafts in the water— an international war crime.
While all of this was happening, an oversized American flag flew clearly above the ship. The attack on the Liberty went on for hour after hour after hour.
During the entire attack the USS Liberty continually called the Sixth Fleet that was nearby, begging for air support or rescue. Two [nearby] aircraft carriers responded by launching fighter aircraft. Unbelievably, they were then recalled by the White House. Rear Admiral Geiss, commanding the carrier in the sixth fleet, called Washington personally to confirm the recall order. Secretary of Defense McNamera came on the line, and then President Johnson himself told Geiss: ”I want that g..damn ship going to the bottom! No help— recall the wings.” Imagine being Admiral Geiss, begging the President to allow you to defend an American ship that is under attack, and being told by him that he wants the ship going to the bottom.
Despite the fact that the US carriers withdrew their help, a Russian spy ship appeared, and witnessed part of the attack. After three hours into the attack, the Israelis withdrew because there were witnesses, allowing the damaged USS Liberty to limp to safety.
Forty years after the attack on the USS LIberty, we know exactly what had happened. I've interviewed former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Thomas Moorer. I've interviewed the Admirals that were on the line, who heard what President Johnson had said. I've even talked to the head Jag officer of the Navy who was ordered to falsify the reports and cover up what had really happened.
One of the Iraeli pilots has gone public as well, saying that he refused over his radio to headquarters to attack the ship, saying clearly that it was an American ship in international waters, and an ally. He was ordered under threat of court martial to engage the ship.
In a nutshell, this is what happened: President Johnson had personal control over the ship, parked it in the Mediterranean, made a back-room deal with Israel to attack it with an order to kill all aboard. Then the attack on the ship was to be blamed on Egypt, the US would enter the war, and take over the entire Middle East.
In the aftermath of the attack of the most highly decorated ship in US history, the Captain and his entire crew were told that they would spend the rest of their life in prison or be killed if they told anyone what happened. Captain William L. McGonagle was given the Congressional Medal of Honor in secret and told not to tell anyone that he had won the award.
