As time permits I will add some observations between the pages of this document below. Meanwhile, here are the pages of the Northwoods Document in jpeg format.
James Bamford discovered this document and the accounting of that discovery is in his book, “Body of Secrets”.
Before reading this document, which is now a historical fact of American governance embarrassment, let us first look at a remarkable statement by one of Sigmund Freud’s nephews, Mr. Edward Bernays, “The Father of Public Relations”, from page 71 in his 1928 book entitled “Propaganda”:
The systemic study of mass psychology revealed to students the potentialities of invisible government of society by manipulation of the motives which actuate man in the group. Trotter and Le Bon, who approached the subject in a scientific manner, and Graham Wallas, Walter Lippmann, and others who continued with searching studies of the group mind, established that the group has mental characteristics distinct from those of the individual, and is motivated by impulses and emotions which cannot be explained on the basis of what we know of individual psychology. So the question naturally arose: If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, is it not possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without their knowing about it?”
We may find it very interesting that some people find an interest in deceiving other people, for whatever motive. In our dearly beloved Federal government have existed for more than two centuries such people. In contemporary times, especially since America became a “National Security State” (as Gore Vidal dubs it), deception has taken a primary role in establishing policy as government administers itself upon the governed.
The document below was created by alleged “Americans” who were in alleged “service to America” at the Department of Defense (DOD) a mere fifteen years after the CIA was created by the National Security Act of 1947. The document was written not by just ordinary officers, mind you, these gentlemen were the Joint Chiefs of Staff. When we pause to ponder their handiwork we see that not only were they intent upon deceiving the American public for purposes of consensus-building in favor of a desired policy which would have America forcefully and militarily invade a sovereign nation-state named Cuba — the Joint Chiefs expressly proposed arranging, planning, and executing terrorist attacks in Miami and Washington D.C. These proposed terrorist events would be blamed on Cuba, and were hoped to, if carried out, cause a wave of indignation across the American public mind and provide the popular support for invading Cuba militarily.

Am adding this lousy copy of the third page just for the sake of integrity. This is the exact way the document came.
