“False Flags” Are So Common that U.S. Officials Commonly Discuss Them

Despite the attempt to marginalize the concept, “false flags” are so common that U.S. officials frequently use that phrase.

For example, Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to Colin Powell:

Former Director for Transnational Threats on the U.S. National Security Council, Roger Cressey:

Former CIA counterterrorism official Philip Mudd:

Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney, a high ranking Air Force official:

Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations (and Neocon warmonger) John Bolton:

The Washington Post notes that Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld approved as an acceptable interrogation method

A technique known as “false flag,” or deceiving a detainee into believing he is being interrogated by someone from another country.

NBC News points out:

In another document taken from the NSA by Snowden and obtained by NBC News, a JTRIG official said the unit’s mission included computer network attacks, disruption, “Active Covert Internet Operations,” and “Covert Technical Operations.” Among the methods listed in the document were jamming phones, computers and email accounts and masquerading as an enemy in a “false flag” operation. The same document said GCHQ was increasing its emphasis on using cyber tools to attack adversaries.

Washington’s Blog asked high-level NSA official Bill Binney* if he had heard of the term “false flags” when he was with the NSA.

Binney responded:

Sure, they were under deception and manipulation programs.  I was not involved in doing them; but, I did have to figure out some that the other side was doing.  The other side called them “dezsinformatsiya” and Manipulatsiya.”

The Brits have been doing this for several hundred years and are quite good at it.

Washington’s Blog asked Philip Giraldi – a former counter-terrorism specialist and military intelligence officer with the CIA – the same question with regards to his experience with the CIA.

Giraldi responded:

Yes, of course. We did false flags, and called them that, frequently in the operations directorate using false documentation to indicated that we were nationals of a country that was not the United States. Almost every CIA officer had false third country identification when operating overseas….

We followed up by asking:

Is it fair to say some of the false flags were for the purpose (i.e. premeditated) of blaming another country or group … not only just in case caught?

Giraldi replied:

Sometimes if it were a covert action attempting to do just that but more often just for cover reasons to make one appear to not be American…

Robert David Steele – a 20-year Marine Corps infantry and intelligence officer, the second-ranking civilian in U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence, and former CIA clandestine services case officer – said:

Most terrorists are false flag terrorists or are created by our own security services.


In the United States, every single terrorist incident we have had has been a false flag, or has been an informant pushed on by the FBI.

Steele has repeatedly and publicly said (and also confirmed to Washington’s Blog) that he personally carried out a “false flag” attack while working as a U.S. intelligence officer.

Indeed, false flags are so common that there are official rules of engagement prohibiting false flags in naval, air and land warfare.

* William Binney is the highest-level NSA whistleblower in history. Binney is the NSA executive who created the agency’s mass surveillance program for digital information, who served as the senior technical director within the agency, who managed six thousand NSA employees, the 36-year NSA veteran widely regarded as a “legend” within the agency and the NSA’s best-ever analyst and code-breaker, who mapped out the Soviet command-and-control structure before anyone else knew how, and so predicted Soviet invasions before they happened (“in the 1970s, he decrypted the Soviet Union’s command system, which provided the US and its allies with real-time surveillance of all Soviet troop movements and Russian atomic weapons”).

    It’s very hard for the majority of Americans to believe their government is capable of doing such things no matter how obvious the evidence is. To be blunt, most of us are suffering from an increasingly more severe form of collective and individual mental illness and are increasingly open to even the cruelest forms of mind control techniques. I see no solution to this problem other than one imposed from the ruling oligarchy or some kind of spiritual awakening on a mass scale.

      Hitler was right: make the LIES so big that the average citizen simply can not believe that their government could be SO dishonest, SO corrupt. How COULD the government be involved in 9/11 or JFK etc — it’s too mind boggling. Thus, people suffer on going mental disassociation, internal contradiction & confusion: perfect soil for the retailing of a self enslaving ideology by an exploitative Elite.

    • Strider73

      One would think that the revelations of “Operation Northwoods” — which had more than a passing resemblance to 9/11 — would have opened more eyes. Sadly not.

      The elites have lost control of the narrative! Thank God ‘Algwhore invented the internet’, right? IMHO FF-type crapy things have been a staple of gvt a Loooong time. I personally know of one big one from early WW2: A relative of mine was a full bird Colonel in USAAF out in the Pacific during that “war”. He told me decades ago about the orders his pilots received in MAY 1942 [b4 MIdway] . concerning the 3 big “captured intact” oil refineries in the Far Easy..BP and Shell @ Singapore and ESSO up in Hanoi (then Fr Indochina)..they put all 3 refineries “off limits to US bombing”. He said his pilots told him [while crying w rage] that they could end the war in 6 WEEKS if they wd be allowed to shut off the Japs’ gasoline supplies. Them 3 refineries stayed off limits fdor 3 years. ..but the ESSO refinery was still off limits til summer 1972..You may remember that year. Esso opened a new refinery in S VN and closed the old one in Hanoi..Nixon trhen became a hawk and ordered the bombing of..Hanoi. FWIW

      We should pass a law that says the Government has to have probable cause and a warrant to search it’s own peoples data, papers, houses, cars, bodies etc… And the warrant should have to list what they are looking for and where they are going to look.

      My friend all we can do is find a common point where all the manufactured divides we are bombarded with dissolve into the reality that all that the government does is corrupt to humanity.
      There is the one issue that can bring us together – if we have not been too polluted by materialism – and that is all the answers leading to the question, “what path do we need to take to preserve our species beyond our own personal lifetimes?”
      Given enough time that is where we will probably end up anyway – only it will be too late.

      The bigger question is the ultimate agenda of the psychopathic elites. I used to believe they cared for nothing more than what they could accumulate during their own lifetimes – selling the future short meant nothing if it gave them profit today.
      But now, understanding that we have lost nearly a century of technology and that technology has been hijacked by the elites – and listening and reading the work of Paul Hellyer and Dr. Greer, the ultimate elite may well have a future built for themselves.
      I have no doubt they will ultimately be undermined by their lack of diversity, and there failure to use consciousness to come together for the common good – preferring to make the choice of competing to the last man standing – they will fail. But not before they have ruined it for a humanity who could have made us one of the very rare intelligent species to perfect our host planet, take the logic paradigm shift to move beyond the cancerous economics that brought us to where we are, and become honestly efficient.
      The elite are our enemy. They are protected by a buffer of the one percent who could be swayed to go either way. Should there not be room for them, and they are likely to catch on quickly, I expect a quick end to their kind – as in a WW3 with crashing markets that remove the worth of both the middle class and the one percent.
      ON this planet anyway; the agenda of the psychopathic elites is to return to the early days of feudalism.

    false flag.
    a taxpayer funded distraction to take focus away from the real corruption.


    FBI employee meuller himself.. traveled to & hand delivered the uranium 1 to Russia
    in exchange for Clinton foundation donations…..

    Clinton sold uranium to Russia acquired from Oregon land grabs..

    years before a stand off.
    without owning it…retired Nevada senator Richard Bryan and Harry Reid sold Bundy’s ranch to
    the Chinese solar clients of Richard Bryan’s Lionel sawyer Collins law
    firm. but Reid and Bryan (BLM GOONS) could not deliver the bundy
    land to the Chinese who bought bundy’s land from bryan’s law firm for $3.4 million .

    so Bryan filed bankruptcy & dissolved Lionel Sawyer Collins to hide
    the land sale scam from the American people so Reid and Bryan had to
    have Obama appoint a hand picked & groomed corrupt
    judge Gloria Navarro and use new harry reid replacement – NV senator
    Catherine Cortez Masto corrupt judges are taxpayer funded govt. employee
    labor union members
    – done with help of harry reid senate replacement Catherine cortez masto

    If real news was to be published, the head of nations and all leadership would cease to exist. US created Soviet Union (Schiff and Wilson Admin), WWII (Wilson Admin), Red China (Rockefeller, Skull and Bones, and Freemasons), Jacobin Revolution (UK, US), WWI (UK, France), Armenian Genocide (UK), Jewish Gulf States and Israel (UK, US). Paintings and sculptures show George Washington as a homicidal megalomanic (See Smithsonian). Founders of US were Freemason power mongers. Crush Freemasonry and US and other war depts would dwindle down to 1/10 of current size. Freemasons and crypto-jews have always run the UK, US, and most of the rest, never for peace.

    Interesting how when shown absolute proof of false flag operation, such as video of WTC-7 falling, people will struggle to make what they see fit the “official” story, instead of just understanding the obvious.

  • Gary Youree

    There are no good guys surrounding and protecting the psychopathic elites. These guys in government, moving from the private sector to the government, and back, and within the government, all play parts to deceive the public.
    Why they bother – I really do not know.
    It has come to the point where those who put on the best act are the best people.

    So many schemes and stunts, yet it all still goes to cr@p. That’s what happens when your whole strategy and thought-basis is wrong, and self-insulated against the necessary comprehension and correction.
