Updated List of ADMITTED False Flag Attacks

Preface: Readers are encouraged to post historically-documented instances in which a member of a government admits that his or her government carried out a false flag attack. While there are many documented false flag attacks, we’re focused on finding cases which are admitted to by someone in the government who carried out the attack.

Governments from around the world admit they’ve used the bully’s trick … attack first, and then blame the victim:

  • Japanese troops set off a small explosion on a train track in 1931, and falsely blamed it on China in order to justify an invasion of Manchuria. This is known as the “Mukden Incident” or the “Manchurian Incident”. The Tokyo International Military Tribunal found: “Several of the participators in the plan, including Hashimoto [a high-ranking Japanese army officer], have on various occasions admitted their part in the plot and have stated that the object of the ‘Incident’ was to afford an excuse for the occupation of Manchuria by the Kwantung Army ….” And see this
  • A major with the Nazi SS admitted at the Nuremberg trials that – under orders from the chief of the Gestapo – he and some other Nazi operatives faked attacks on their own people and resources which they blamed on the Poles, to justify the invasion of Poland. Nazi general Franz Halder also testified at the Nuremberg trials that Nazi leader Hermann Goering admitted to setting fire to the German parliament building in 1933, and then falsely blaming the communists for the arson
  • Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev admitted in writing that the Soviet Union’s Red Army shelled the Russian village of Mainila in 1939 – while blaming the attack on Finland – as a basis for launching the “Winter War” against Finland. Russian president Boris Yeltsin agreed that Russia had been the aggressor in the Winter War
  • The Russian Parliament admits that Soviet leader Joseph Stalin ordered his secret police to execute 22,000 Polish army officers and civilians in 1940, and then blamed it on the Nazis.  Current Russian president Putin and former Soviet leader Gorbachev have also admitted that the Soviets were responsible for the massacre
  • Israel admits that an Israeli terrorist cell operating in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including U.S. diplomatic facilities, then left behind “evidence” implicating the Arabs as the culprits (one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to identify the bombers, and several of the Israelis later confessed) (and see this and this)
  • The CIA admits that it hired Iranians in the 1950′s to pose as Communists and stage bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its democratically-elected prime minister
  • The Turkish Prime Minister admitted that the Turkish government carried out the 1955 bombing on a Turkish consulate in Greece – also damaging the nearby birthplace of the founder of modern Turkey – and blamed it on Greece, for the purpose of inciting and justifying anti-Greek violence
  • The British Prime Minister admitted to his defense secretary that he and American president Dwight Eisenhower approved a plan in 1957 to carry out attacks in Syria and blame it on the Syrian government as a way to effect regime change
  • In 1960, American Senator George Smathers suggested that the U.S. launch “a false attack made on Guantanamo Bay which would give us the excuse of actually fomenting a fight which would then give us the excuse to go in and [overthrow Castro]“.
  • Official State Department documents show that, in 1961, the head of the Joint Chiefs and other high-level officials discussed blowing up a consulate in the Dominican Republic in order to justify an invasion of that country. The plans were not carried out, but they were all discussed as serious proposals
  • As admitted by the U.S. government, recently declassified documents show that in 1962, the American Joint Chiefs of Staff signed off on a plan to blow up AMERICAN airplanes (using an elaborate plan involving the switching of airplanes), and also to commit terrorist acts on American soil, and then to blame it on the Cubans in order to justify an invasion of Cuba. See the following ABC news report; the official documents; and watch this interview with the former Washington Investigative Producer for ABC’s World News Tonight with Peter Jennings.
  • In 1963, the U.S. Department of Defense wrote a paper promoting attacks on nations within the Organization of American States – such as Trinidad-Tobago or Jamaica – and then falsely blaming them on Cuba
  • The U.S. Department of Defense even suggested covertly paying a person in the Castro government to attack the United States: “The only area remaining for consideration then would be to bribe one of Castro’s subordinate commanders to initiate an attack on Guantanamo.”
  • The NSA admits that it lied about what really happened in the Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964 … manipulating data to make it look like North Vietnamese boats fired on a U.S. ship so as to create a false justification for the Vietnam war
  • A U.S. Congressional committee admitted that – as part of its “Cointelpro” campaign – the FBI had used many provocateurs in the 1950s through 1970s to carry out violent acts and falsely blame them on political activists
  • A top Turkish general admitted that Turkish forces burned down a mosque on Cyprus in the 1970s and blamed it on their enemy. He explained: “In Special War, certain acts of sabotage are staged and blamed on the enemy to increase public resistance. We did this on Cyprus; we even burnt down a mosque.” In response to the surprised correspondent’s incredulous look the general said, “I am giving an example”
  • The German government admitted (and see this) that, in 1978, the German secret service detonated a bomb in the outer wall of a prison and planted “escape tools” on a prisoner – a member of the Red Army Faction – which the secret service wished to frame the bombing on
  • A Mossad agent says that, in 1984, Mossad planted a radio transmitter in Gaddaffi’s compound in Tripoli, Libya which broadcast fake terrorist trasmissions recorded by Mossad, in order to frame Gaddaffi as a terrorist supporter. Ronald Reagan bombed Libya immediately thereafter
  • The South African Truth and Reconciliation Council found that, in 1989, the Civil Cooperation Bureau (a covert branch of the South African Defense Force) approached an explosives expert and asked him “to participate in an operation aimed at discrediting the ANC [the African National Congress] by bombing the police vehicle of the investigating officer into the murder incident”, thus framing the ANC for the bombing
  • An Algerian diplomat and several officers in the Algerian army admit that, in the 1990s, the Algerian army frequently massacred Algerian civilians and then blamed Islamic militants for the killings (and see this video; and Agence France-Presse, 9/27/2002, French Court Dismisses Algerian Defamation Suit Against Author)
  • Senior Russian Senior military and intelligence officers admit that the KGB blew up Russian apartment buildings in 1999 and falsely blamed it on Chechens, in order to justify an invasion of Chechnya (and see this report and this discussion)
  • According to the Washington Post, Indonesian police admit that the Indonesian military killed American teachers in Papua in 2002 and blamed the murders on a Papuan separatist group in order to get that group listed as a terrorist organization.
  • The well-respected former Indonesian president also admits that the government probably had a role in the Bali bombings
  • As reported by BBC, the New York Times, and Associated Press, Macedonian officials admit that the government murdered 7 innocent immigrants in cold blood and pretended that they were Al Qaeda soldiers attempting to assassinate Macedonian police, in order to join the “war on terror”
  • Senior police officials in Genoa, Italy admitted that – in July 2001, at the G8 summit in Genoa – planted two Molotov cocktails and faked the stabbing of a police officer, in order to justify a violent crackdown against protesters
  • Similarly, the U.S. falsely blamed Iraq for playing a role in the 9/11 attacks – as shown by a memo from the defense secretary – as one of the main justifications for launching the Iraq war. Even after the 9/11 Commission admitted that there was no connection, Dick Cheney said that the evidence is “overwhelming” that al Qaeda had a relationship with Saddam Hussein’s regime, that Cheney “probably” had information unavailable to the Commission, and that the media was not ‘doing their homework’ in reporting such ties. Top U.S. government officials now admit that the Iraq war was really launched for oil … not 9/11 or weapons of mass destruction (despite previous “lone wolf” claims, many U.S. government officials now say that 9/11 was state-sponsored terror; but Iraq was not the state which backed the hijackers)
  • Former Department of Justice lawyer John Yoo suggested in 2005 that the US should go on the offensive against al-Qaeda, having “our intelligence agencies create a false terrorist organization. It could have its own websites, recruitment centers, training camps, and fundraising operations. It could launch fake terrorist operations and claim credit for real terrorist strikes, helping to sow confusion within al-Qaeda’s ranks, causing operatives to doubt others’ identities and to question the validity of communications.”
  • United Press International reported in June 2005:

U.S. intelligence officers are reporting that some of the insurgents in Iraq are using recent-model Beretta 92 pistols, but the pistols seem to have had their serial numbers erased. The numbers do not appear to have been physically removed; the pistols seem to have come off a production line without any serial numbers. Analysts suggest the lack of serial numbers indicates that the weapons were intended for intelligence operations or terrorist cells with substantial government backing. Analysts speculate that these guns are probably from either Mossad or the CIA. Analysts speculate that agent provocateurs may be using the untraceable weapons even as U.S. authorities use insurgent attacks against civilians as evidence of the illegitimacy of the resistance.

  • Undercover Israeli soldiers admitted in 2005 to throwing stones at other Israeli soldiers so they could blame it on Palestinians, as an excuse to crack down on peaceful protests by the Palestinians
  • Quebec police admitted that, in 2007, thugs carrying rocks to a peaceful protest were actually undercover Quebec police officers (and see this)
  • At the G20 protests in London in 2009, a British member of parliament saw plain clothes police officers attempting to incite the crowd to violence
  • Egyptian politicians admitted (and see this) that government employees looted priceless museum artifacts in 2011 to try to discredit the protesters
  • A Colombian army colonel has admitted that his unit murdered 57 civilians, then dressed them in uniforms and claimed they were rebels killed in combat
  • U.S. soldiers have admitted that if they kill innocent Iraqis and Afghanis, they then “drop” automatic weapons near their body so they can pretend they were militants
  • The highly-respected writer for the Telegraph Ambrose Evans-Pritchard says that the head of Saudi intelligence – Prince Bandar – recently admitted that the Saudi government controls “Chechen” terrorists
  • High-level American sources admitted that the Turkish government – a fellow NATO country – carried out the chemical weapons attacks blamed on the Syrian government; and high-ranking Turkish government admitted on tape plans to carry out attacks and blame it on the Syrian government
  • The former Ukrainian security chief admits that the sniper attacks which started the Ukrainian coup were carried out in order to frame others
  • Britain’s spy agency has admitted (and see this) that it carries out “digital false flag” attacks on targets, framing people by writing offensive or unlawful material … and blaming it on the target

    I don’t know if you covered this elsewhere, but Gustav III of Sweden used a false flag attack in 1788 as justification to attack Russia.

  • Hoo Hooter

    Theres A very mean day coming so get ready. The devil monster and hell monster both are at work.. I hate the pit of hell. It stinks bad

    • Tom Tchikofski

      I think I can smell that too. I may not be very accurate of describing the stink, the time of the stink but for sure, it will be here and may god bless us all. Those whom hijacked us so far slumming us on almost every country on earth. One of these days, the economic hardship we brought upon others, will be brought upon us.

      • Paul Stramer

        You use the word we very loosely sir. I, for one have been fighting all this for a very long time, since the 60s. See my blog for over 1700 articles on these subjects at http://www.montanablog.us and then look at the history of how all this was done to us for over 150 years at http://www.annavonreitz.com

        • Tom Tchikofski

          I am not sure which word are you refiring to but
          Thank you for your replay and I do admire your hard work. I will keep your page for reading.

  • Hoo Hooter

    We now live on A Oonet,not A planet.

  • Pittie

    God should pull A false flag attack on the pit of hell and blow that pit up. And blame it on the demons.

  • mick

    just wait till we get the proof MOSSAD did 911 … that will get peoples attention.

    • Tom Tchikofski

      This is exactly what the American people said back in 60s. “Wait till we get the
      proof of Israeli destroyed USS Liberty and killed 34 of our service man. Blah blah blah

      Guess what, Now we know about it. Can you do anything about it? We still give them 3

      Hay we love CNN, FOX and SEE BS. We love the pathetic version of Christianity that is performed in Western society. We loved our asses being jammed with Red White and Blue dick. (BTW -George Carlin stated)

      They made garbage out of your religions, educations, society. So when you feed the society garbage, what do you expect?

      When Garbage IN, Garbage OUT. (Again George Carlin stated)

      • Sadly, you nailed it: the top of the pyramid is the mainstream media, the umbrella under which all the false flags can exist.

  • Peter Grafström

    About the purported false flag at Gleiwitz : an ss-major at nuernburg would be under pressure to admit such things in return for more lenient treatment. Just saying, I dont know anything for sure.
    Harry Elmer Barnes claims FDR et al were determined to avoid peace and provoked the Poland crisis.
    While there is no big surprise if the germans really did the ff, the victors would have a strong motive for coercing their prisoners if this wasnt so. There were many signs in Poland of provocations against germans. Needless to say the Us/Uk wanted to cast all the blame on Germany.

    Secret Audio Recordings Exposes How Hilary Clinton Distorted Facts To Push For Attack On Libya
    “[Gadhafi] said he was willing to step down and permit a transition government.”

  • WarIsaRacketBySmedleyButler

    I would add the Dan Rather CBS special on FBI “foreknowledge” of the 1993 WTC bombing…..which they provided a live bomb and accidentally forgot to switch it for a dud.

    • Tim

      Accidentally? No, they wanted it to go off. The PNAC signatories, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Pakistan colluded to finish the job on 9/11, with the first two listed being the main perps.

  • EmilyEnso

    You have missed one of the most blatant and inexcusable ‘false flags’.
    Which gave Clinton and Blair the desired excuse for the vicous and shocking attack on the the Christian Serbs on behalf of the KLA.
    The KLA – an Albanian/Kosovan islamic wahhabi oriented fundamentalist Organization – now running Serbia”s province of Kosovo as a narco criminal state.
    Racak. Journalists who saw the site at the time raised alarm.
    It has now been thoroughly exposed as a CIA/KLA op with the willing and disgraceful backing of the MSM prestitutes and propaganda services.

    Hi, what a great forum this is and I want to applaud the help that was rendered to my father by Mr. Rick Simpson. I send my love and prayers to all who have come here for help. I’d like to request a prayer for Mr. Rick Simpson who have cured my dad of his lung cancer. He was diagnosed about 3 year ago, beat it once and then a few months later it came back in his brain. He has been doing everything he possibly can, medication wise, and now the cancer seems to be immune to chemotherapy and radiation. He talks about this being his last year of life, so I feel like he has lost hope. after several online search, I found Mr. Rick Simpson Cannabis oil which we secured via: ricksimpsonmedicaloil@gmail.com, as soon my dad started his treatment and to God be the glory I didn’t lose my daddy to lungs cancer anymore.
    Please help me share this testimony to the world at large as my dad has been saved by Mr. Rick Simpson Cannabis Oil which we order via: ricksimpsonmedicaloil@gmail.com. My dad is now the strongest person I know and this cancer has has been cured. Am now seeing my dad thriving and full of life again. I admire his personality so much. Once again, God bless Mr. Rick Simpson and all who have reached out for help on here. With love,
    share my story to the world and tell every to contact Mr. Rick Simpson on: ricksimpsonmedicaloil@gmail.com

    • Ros Papas aka nofearorfavor

      Rita… I thank you for Rick Simpson’s address… While I visited our lovely Washington’s Blog to read about the false flag attacks and then viewed the comments, I was obviously guided here to pick up your comment and subsequently, the direct info on Rick Simpson, whom I will contact today. God bless you and your daddy and may he live a healthy life for many, many years to come… What a wonderful sweet and loving daughter you are!

      • Rita Jane

        you are welcome #Ros Papas aka nofearorfavor# can him today and your life will be free from cancer

  • Some Dude

    But, but, but…. ‘Murica!

  • 911, Team 6/Bin Laden capture, Sandy Hook, Batman shooting, Sikh Temple shooting, Boston marathon, Charlie Hedbo…those are the ones I can think of in 10 seconds.

  • How long before 9/11 is added to this list…

  • As Peter Grafström reminds us, confessions re the Gleiwitz incident at the Nuremberg Trials were probably obtained under conditions of extreme duress, making them as reliable as the 9/11 “confession” of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed..

    Regarding the 1946 “confession” of Halder re the 1933 Reichstag fire.. Halder was involved in the 1944 plot to assassinate Hitler. His statements are equivalent to accusations against Ghaddafi by deserters from his Government who threw in their lot with NATO. It cannot be regarded as a “confession’ in any meaningful sense; it was an accusation.

  • Ros Papas aka nofearorfavor

    ???? Re Shelling of the Russian village of Mainila in 1939… Puzzled about why in the last sentence at the end of this report and admitted false flag attack, Putin’s name appears? Followed links but Putin is not mentioned anywhere in the write-up… The shelling of this village happened 13 years before he was born. Can anybody explain to me what I possibly missed and the reasons behind it?

  • remember atrocities

    What about the Katyn Massacre? Stalin eliminated the top Polish officers and intelligentsia and set it up as caused by Hitler. Uncovered later. While Hitter never admitted it, as he was dead, this set back the leadership of Poland for decades while taken over by the soviets.

    In 2007 at just 33 years old, my dreams were abruptly eclipsed by the cold, hard reality of 1.2 cm tumors, endless visits to oncologists and having to face my own mortality at a young age. i decided to face my illness head on, with a positive spirit, and with support from my family and my husband. To protect myself from infertility, i opted for radiation treatment instead of chemotherapy. All was well for a short while, but two years the cancer returned. Two weeks before my wedding, my doctors gave the bleak diagnosis: stage four breast cancer with six to nine months left to live. It appeared my fight was over. The warrior in me had been tested many times in her 33 years. But when i was told my cancer was unbeatable, and it was time to set my affairs in order, the warrior inside me rose up to meet the impossible with a spirit of hopeful defiance. i leveled a steady gaze at my team of grieving oncologists and replied, “This is not my life. I will not die, because I was meant for more.” True to my word, i have done much more. Rather than living in the shadow of a stage four cancer diagnoses,, so a friend of my introduce me to hemp oil and how to use it, for just few weeks am cancer free,. here is the email address of any assistance or to make your order……..email: ricksimpsoncarefoundation@gmail.com
