The term “false flag” is no longer marginalized. Everyone seems to understand that this is a very real aspect of government (and rogue actor) operations against the public interest.
LIST ONLY: Operation Gladio (Italy), Operation Ajax (Iran), The Lavon Affair (Mossad), COININTELPRO (FBI against America), Gulf of Tonkin (LBJ).
Phi Beta Iota: Although CIA developed false flag operations into an art form from the Philippines to Viet-Nam to Guatemala to Iran in the 1950’s, this quickly migrated to domestic (unconstitutional) operations with the FBI and the CIA in the 1960’s. It took on new life under Dick Cheney and the Mossad in the 1980’s and 1990’s, with 9/11 and the invasion of Iraq rooted in 935 lies being the new gold standards. What is most interesting from our perspective that is aligned with the truth in the public interest is that the deep state appears to have so over-stepped the boundaries of “reasonable dishonesty” that the term “false flag” is no longer — as contributing editor Berto Jongman observes — no longer marginalized. This is a good thing.
