In 1962 during the Kennedy Administration CIA planned to commit acts of terror against the US. “Operation Northwoods” was a top secret project that called for the government to commit perceived acts of terror on US cities and blame these on Cuba.
The “Operation Northwoods” called for CIA agents to disguise themselves as Cuban Agents and commit acts of terror on the U.S base at Guantanamo Bay and other major US cities. This operation outlined such drastic measures as bombings, hijackings, riots, sinking ships, and even conducting funerals for mock victims.
The plan was finally revealed to the public in 1997 because of it’s illegal and violent content.
