Article: The Mechanics of False Flag Terrorism


9/11, the most famous false flag.

Seoul, Korea –

Unless you’ve been living on the moon for the last several years, you’ve probably noticed the gradual escalation of invasions, revolutions (or coups?) and general instability in the Middle East and Africa. As bad as it’s been, things have been relatively calm compared to a potential war with Iran, which would likely include Syria and maybe a larger regional conflict, possibly with China and Russia.

Without getting too much into how and why that would play out, the purpose here is to examine the likely catalyst for a larger conflict. The ultimate tool that the ruling elite have to swing public opinion on almost any issue foreign or domestic is what is commonly referred to as a false flag event. Otherwise relegated to the realm of conspiracy theory, here it will be demonstrated that not only are these events real, but they are common and they have distinct characteristics that we can identify to help prevent them.

False flag terrorism initially sounds outrageous; the idea that governments would through their secretive intelligence networks operating under ‘national security’ initiate deadly attacks against their own civilians to coerce them into accepting otherwise unpopular policies such as war, police state measures etc. The theory of the false flag strategy being that it initiates the Hegelian Dialect; or problem, reaction, solution model of social control.

Let’s focus on this past summer’s infamous Batman theater shooting in Colorado as a sort of case study. It’s still relatively fresh in our minds, and more developments are still coming out. And with each aspect of that shooting that suggests it was a false flag, there will be examples from other apparent or declassified false flags to support each concept. But first, as with examining any contemporary event, we need to put it into historical context…

The History of False Flags

Guy Fawkes Day, the original false flag?

“The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.” – Nazi Reichmarshall Hermann Goering during the Nuremberg trials.

Let’s start with one of the oldest and most famous false flags of history… the Gunpowder Plot of November 5, 1605, still celebrated in Britain as Guy Fawkes Day. Fawkes, a Catholic and perceived sympathizer with the rival Catholic Spanish Empire, was caught entering the British parliament basement to blow up it up and kill King James the 1st and his cabinet.

Fawkes and his co-conspirators were executed and mass public hysteria against Catholics and the Spanish Empire resulted. War followed and the British defeated Spain, changing the course of history by setting the stage for a vast British Empire which dominated the world stage until the World Wars. However, historians including Dr. Webster G Tarpley, allege that Guy Fawkes was a patsy set up to fail by the Royal Chancellor, Lord Robert Cecil, a member of the War Party. He breaks down all of those details in his book 911 Synthetic Terror.

In a more recent example, the US claimed its naval destroyers were attacked by the North Vietnamese in the Gulf of Tonkin in 1964. So everyone back stateside got real angry, and then the Vietnam War started, that would otherwise have been politically impossible to sell to the public. Since it became declassified in 2004 that the attack simply never occurred, Wikipedia interestingly refers to the incident as an ‘error’ by then President Lyndon Johnson that he blamed the North Vietnamese for the alleged attack.

So every false flag event has a number of consistent tells that let you know something isn’t quite right, just like in poker when you can tell if someone is bluffing by observing key behaviors. Take this one for example; it’s common that the attack’s handler, such as Bin Laden or Anwar al-Awlaki (both of Al Qaeda), always have a history in secretive intelligence agencies, or in their case CIA.

Now this is always admitted quietly in the back of mainstream news reports and/or declassified documents. Like check out Fox News Al Qaeda leader (al-Awlaki) dined at the Pentagon just months after 9/11 or FBI translator Sibel Edmonds “Bin Laden worked for US up to the day of 9/11” for examples of mainstream news admitting this truth. In most of the attacks discussed in this article, you will see this constant trait.

So What Really Happened in Colorado?


The Batman Shooting, our case study for today.

“Let us not tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories” – President Bush in reference 9/11 conspiracies.

So here’s what we do know about what happened at that shooting in Colorado… about 50 people were wounded, at least 12 killed in a massacre at a movie theater at the midnight premier of the Batman movie, Dark Night Rises. A witness claims a likely accomplice took a cell phone call and left through a heavy steel door exit, leaving it propped open minutes before a shooter comes through. Dressed in various military gear, the shooter throws gas canisters, and at least one witness indicates another person throwing gas canisters from another isle. The shooting began, and the rest is history. Here are videos of two witnesses…

He also had quite the arsenal for your average non-military grad student, according to Benn Swann, Fox News “How was alleged shooter James Holmes, an unemployed graduate student, able to afford an arsenal of weaponry, including a tactical helmet, bullet proof vest, an AR-15 assault rifle, a Remington shotgun, two 40-caliber Glock handguns, as well as an assortment of bomb-making materials?

The shooter was described as professional and methodical, contrasting sharply with the lone incoherent, hysterical red haired James Holmes found in the parking garage. Despite his alleged rampage, he peacefully surrendered to police. And despite going through all the labor and expenses to rig his apartment with explosives, he inexplicably warned the police about that. It took the FBI two days to disarm the bombs, which experts say almost certainly required help from an explosives expert (Fox News).

After his arrest he kept screaming that he was the ‘Joker’ (the Batman villain), and now he’s reportedly zombie-like, and unable to talk coherently (Fox News). The latest is he says he can’t remember anything about what landed him in jail (NY Daily News). Now that we’ve established what we know, let’s get to those aforementioned tells that this could be a false flag event.

A Changing Story


Read The Last Defense instead!

“You supply the pictures, I’ll supply the war” – Newspaper Owner William Hearst to artist Frederic Remington about staging USS Maine false flag to start the Spanish/American War.

If there is any kind of a cover-up or conspiracy (aka if it’s a false flag…), you will notice a dramatic contrast in the content from the initial local media reports with the later mainstream, national media coverage. Take this ABC News report, among the very first after the Batman theater shooting. They start with “one suspect taken into custody, (the police) believes there is one more suspect that is on the loose…” Now if you watch the report you will notice later in the very same clip someone is talking into the reporter’s earpiece and they say it’s suddenly confirmed that there was only one shooter. Are we watching the mainstream media gate-keepers takeover of the story in live time? Check it out...

Now not all mainstream media is playing along. WXIX-FOX19 noted some inconsistencies about the shooting… “Despite police claiming ‘every single indicator’ tells them that the shooting was a lone-wolf attack, numerous witnesses have described accomplices. Initial police reports that suggested the involvement of two or more shooters were quickly buried and the lone wolf narrative aggressively pushed.”

Producer Chris Emery is also familiar with changing stories from his documentary on the Oklahoma City Bombing titled The Noble Lie, and he immediately noticed something wrong with the Batman shooting… “They were clearly looking for two people… I learned this from 9/11; always look at the initial reports, study them closely, try to record them, and then compare them to what eventually comes out in the next couple hours…”

Stephanie Sledge, editor of studied media manipulation of last year’s Tusan shooting; she compared that with coverage of the batman shooting for the Alex Jones’ Show. At Tusan she caught media splicing 911 dispatcher calls, and she discovered some media photos didn’t match the crime scene (and none depict Jerrod Lee Loftner). She covers several other claims by big media such as ballistics evidence, weapon location, Loftner’s location and more that apparently contradict witness accounts.

Sledge said regarding the batman shooting; “The first similarity (to the Batman shooting) that I found was the fact that there was gag order put in place which is very common with these false flags… and so nobody (witnesses or police) is allowed to talk (anymore),” she said.

Gag orders are yet another tell of a false flag. The survivors of the 2010 Cheonan warship sinking here at South Korea were gagged, which adds suspicion when considering that story is still disputed by Chinese and Russian investigators. In the case of the Batman shooting, the gag order includes survivors’ statements, Holmes’ school records, and any video or pictures.

Sometimes reports can even precede the real event, as was the case with the infamous JFK assassination. The Christchurch Star for Australia and New Zealand announced that Lee Harvey Oswald killed President Kennedy hours before he was arrested or even mentioned in western media. Then on 9/11 multiple TV stations announced the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 up to an hour before it actually fell, in one case on BBC News while the building even remained standing in the background of the newscast. Here’s that video…

Who is Holmes?

James Holmes… with a look like that, you could blame him for just about anything!

There is already conjecture that James Holmes may have been involved in mind-altering neuroscience research and ended up becoming involved at a depth he never anticipated. His actions clearly show a strange detachment from reality, indicating he was not in his right mind. That can only typically be accomplished through drugs, hypnosis or trauma (and sometimes all three) said Mike Adams of

Now before he became the Joker and allegedly shot up a movie theater… who was James Holmes really? He was a PhD medical student in a Department of Defense program at the University of Colorado, specifically focused on neuroscience and brain studies.

According to journalist Wayne Madison, Holmes was at the top of his class, among six recipients of a National Institutes of Health Neuroscience Training Grant at Denver University. He was also a research assistant intern at the University of California’s Salk Institute in San Diego. The Salk Institute has worked with DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) and several top universities on antioxidant cocoa based drugs to fight military fatigue.

He had a psychologist, Dr. Lynne Fenton whom had an interesting background. Dr. Fenton worked for the Pentagon and was reprimanded for prescribing too many pharmaceutical drugs. Anyway Holmes was not known to show any apparent signs of being a mass murderer. The New York Times reported…

Billy Kromka, a pre-med student at the University of Colorado, Boulder, worked with Mr. Holmes for three months last summer as a research assistant in a lab of at the Anschutz Medical Campus. Mr. Kromka said he was surprised to learn Mr. Holmes was the shooting suspect. It was just shocking, because there was no way I thought he could have the capacity to do commit an atrocity like this.’”

James’ mother gave a press conference claiming the police lied that she ever confirmed James was the shooter. She merely confirmed that they had her son and then they hung up on her. Is it not common sense that they should be questioning the parents thoroughly? Well Mrs. Holmes says the police won’t talk to her or her husband, nor will they retract their statements.

Now that we’ve looked at Holmes’ background, what does he have in common with other apparent patsies of false flag events? There is one secretive government program that many patsies seem to have a relationship with… MK Ultra.

MK Ultra


MK Ultra, your main supplier for free goodies!

“When you see a drugged up person in the courtroom and the every person says they did it, that’s Operation Northwood folks” radio host Alex Jones.

Jones is talking about the MK-Ultra program, declassified. “MK-Ultra, was a covert, illegal human research program into behavioral modification run by the Central Intelligence Agency’s (CIA) Office of Scientific Intelligence– Wikipedia. It involved 127 colleges, prisons, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies and was notorious for using drugs such as LSD and PCP to create cold, calculating killers without conscience.

Sirhan-Sirhan, alleged assassin of Democratic Presidential Nominee Robert Kennedy, claimed to have amnesia (ala Holmes today). That’s interesting because a declassified 1955 MK Ultra document states “Materials (drugs) will cause temporary/permanent brain damage and loss of memory.” Now you could assume Sirhan faked the amnesia, but other evidence doesn’t add up. The Los Angeles police and coroner reports both conclude that a different caliber gun from Sirhan’s, shot Kennedy from behind (possibly by security personnel). A 1969 edition of the Spokane Daily Chronicle stated psychologist Dr. Martin M. Schorr testified that Sirhan suffered from split personality disorder, incidentally another specified symptom in the 1955 document.

Oklahoma City Bomber Timothy McVeigh’s court appointed psychologist was Dr. Jolyon West, the number two man of MK Ultra behind Dr. Ewen Cameron. It’s declassified that Ted Kaczynski, the infamous ‘Unabomber’ who tried to blow up an airplane with a plastic shoe bomb, had a similar background to Holmes. Kaczynski was also a PhD in a Department of Defense neuroscience program, and LA Times reported declassified MK Ultra documents confirmed that Kaczynski was an MK Ultra volunteer.

The London Telegraph reported that the shooters of the Mumbai attacks in India, 2008 were found with injectors filled with LSD and PCP. The Chicago Tribune a few months later confirmed that David Headley, the mastermind arrested in Chicago was a CIA agent working with the Laskar-e-Taiba Al Qaeda group.

The Drills

Military Drills: for those who ask “How did they pull this off?”

“The concurrent operations have several different functions. One… to cover their butts as they move assets in place is under the cover of this drill. And then after words it is also part of the cover-up because the people involved in what they thought was a drill only after words may or may not realize that it was part of the real thing. And now they are ether complicit or they are kept in the dark about their true role.” – Noble Lie Producer Chris Emery.

The Denver Post reported that Colorado University ran a drill on the same day training their medical students how to respond to a movie theater shooting with gas canisters. Drills during false flags are usually completely identical in time, location, and actions to the real event. This is perhaps the most important tell because we can observe scheduled drills before the event.

Emery added “In the case of Oklahoma City after the bombing a lot of the cops were being told by their superiors that the bombing was part of a sting operation that went bad. Of course this was not part of the official story but this is what the cops were being told, this was a cover story. The sting operation was to move the assets in place… move the truck in place, get the explosives inside the building.”

The Feds declared national security on the security videos that the LA Times admitted showed four people with McVeigh the morning of the bombing. Remember the Tusan, Columbine, and Batman shootings also had withheld videotapes.

And 9/11 had over 40 military drills running during and in the weeks before, detailed in Tarpley’s book. These drills included hijacked air planes hitting buildings (USA Today), military buildings and everything else that really happened. Remember how even mainstream news admitted that NORAD (North American Air Defense) stood down while the hijackings took place? Listen to audio of the military commanders discussing if they should scramble jets and notice they have to distinguish if it’s ‘real world or exercise?’

Emad Salem, FBI undercover agent gave a press conference just after the 1995 World Trade Center bombing and played audio tape of the FBI telling him to plant real bombs against pillars in the building’s basement, intended to bring the buildings down (NY Times, Associated Press). Salem obviously was wise enough to understand the ‘drill’ was actually the real thing and so he recorded the FBI, immediately called the press conference and likely saved his life.

A lesser known story from the London 7/7 train and bus bombings is the infamous Canary Wharf shootings. The participants in those drills (exact same buses, trains, same time… BBC News) obviously didn’t think the bombs they carried were real. After the first trains and buses blew up, several of them apparently figured out this was more than they had bargained for. They dropped their bags and made a run for it. They didn’t make it far… they were gunned down in broad day light at Canary Wharf, a popular business district in London. It was later confirmed by the Associated Press that their handler and the leader of the 7/7 attacks, Haroon Rashid, was an MI6 agent.

Declassified False Flags


Operation Northwoods, click on the next link for more…

“The desired resultant from the execution of this plan would be to place the United States in the apparent position of suffering defensible grievances from a rash and irresponsible government of Cuba and to develop an international image of a Cuban threat to peace in the Western Hemisphere.”– excerpt from Operation Northwoods.

Operation Northwoods, declassified shortly before 9/11, was a plan for a whole series of false flag attacks to be blamed on Cuba in the 1960s. It was approved all the way up to President John F. Kennedy’s desk. Not only did Kennedy refuse to sign it but he fired many of the top CIA intelligence officers. We all know what happened to Kennedy shortly after that. This plan included fake hijacking and bombings to be blamed on Fidel Castro’s Cuban government.

Other infamous programs include Project Gladio.  Recently declassified in Germany, France and Italy, it includes that US agents aided various terrorist acts throughout Europe in the 1980s to achieve various political agendas. Another program by Israel, according to, the Lavon Affair was a failed false flag operation in 1954 in Egypt. The attacks were to be blamed on the Muslim Brotherhood, Egyptian nationalists and others to justify the British government’s military presence.

And 2004 US Amy manuals given to officers detailed how to win support from the local populations by killing civilians and then blaming it on the desired target group (Wiki leaks, confirmed real by the US military).

Dead Witnesses

Jenny Gallagher, nurse who helped survivors of the Batman Shooting, drowned weeks later.

“She worked the morning after the Batman massacre in a very busy unit of the hospital – so she saw everything really, some really bad injuries,” said Greg Gallagher, her husband.

Now this here is pure speculation, it could very well be that this poor lady did drown by accident. In any case, she is a dead witness whom would have known first hand, especially due to her role as a nurse dealing with the aftermath, if something about the whole story doesn’t add up.

As time passes hopefully we can learn more about what really did or didn’t happen to Jenny. In the meantime, instead of focusing on Jenny, let’s look at another key witness from an aforementioned false flag.

Terrance Yeakey was rescued four people from the OKC Bombing; he was supposed to receive the Oklahoma City Police Department’s Medal of Valor. He didn’t live to receive it…

Official reports claim Yeakey slashed his wrists, one twice and the other three times, placed two slits in a vein at the bend of the elbow of one arm and four at the bend of the elbow of the other, and then stabbed himself with the knife in both sides of the throat, near the jugular vein. Then he walked one-and-a-half miles where he shot himself in the side of the head. The bullet entered the upper temple on the right side and exited below the upper jaw bone on the left side, meaning the gun would have been pointed in a downward angle – a most unlikely way for a person bent on suicide to hold a gun.– Mike Blair of

According to a letter by Yeakey to a victim’s family member, The, he was well aware something wasn’t right about the bombing.

“Knowing what I know now and understanding fully just what went down that morning makes me ashamed to wear a badge from Oklahoma City’s Police Department. I took an oath to uphold the law and to enforce the law to the best of my ability. This is something I cannot honestly do and hold my head up proud any longer if I keep my silence as I am ordered to do…” – Terrance Yeakey

I chose to spotlight Yeakey’s case here because we’ve gone over the OKC event a lot in this article. I could just as well highlight Barry Jennings or several others on 9/11. There’s dozens of deaths connected to the JFK murder(s). Likely someone or many people died in the subsequent cover ups of every false flag discussed in this article.

The Timing

Coincidences… Yep…

“It’s hard to believe in coincidence, but it’s even harder to believe in anything else.” ― John Green

The FBI and DHS (Department of Homeland Security) on May17th posted a warning stating intelligence specifically that movie theater and other mass gatherings would be targeted for shootings, however the FBI promptly removed the warning the day after the attack.

And the following July 27th President Obama was scheduled to sign a UN ban on semi-automatic weapons. That date has since passed without the signing but now a similar gun ban has been snuck into an upcoming cyber defense bill.

There’s another famous shooting that happened just weeks before Congress failed to extend an assault weapons ban in 1999. The Columbine school shooting has tells of being false flag. Like the Rocky Mountain News reported that the SWAT team, on scene at the shooting immediately, was ordered to stand down for at least two hours while shooting continued. The now defunct newspaper also reported accounts of shooters other than Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. CBS News admitted over 100 bombs were found in the school. As par for false flags, the surveillance videos still aren’t released.

The Batman shooting also occurred among the fallout over the Fast and Furious scandal. Attorney General Eric Holder likely perjured himself in federal court by saying he didn’t know about the ATF (gun control) program sending over 20,000 guns and hand grenades to drug gangs in Mexico, Florida and other US locations despite documents obtained by CBC News indicated otherwise (The Huffington Post). It’s worth noting the victims U.S. District Judge John McCarthy Roll and Senator Gabrielle Giffords of the aforementioned Tusan shooting were supposedly investigating Fast and Furious (Alex Jones).

President Obama declared national security when Congress demanded more documents from Holder. The same Eric Holder that Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue obtained documents from a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit indicating that the then Clinton era Attorney General for the District of Columbia authorized FBI agents to give explosives to Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols just before the OKC Bombing.

And there were outright calls for terrorism. In July 2010 former senior advisor to President Clinton (during the OKC bombing) Robert Shapiro was quoted in the Financial Times of London “He (President Obama) has to find some way between now and November of demonstrating that he is a leader who can command confidence and, short of a 9/11 event or an Oklahoma City bombing, I can’t think of how he could do that.” A document by elitists’ think-tank Project For A New American Century also called for a “Pearl Harbor” level event just a year before 9/11.


A duck! Just keep reading…

“If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck… it’s probably a duck.” – Someone Clever

So with the batman shooting you have drills, manipulated evidence, gagged witnesses, and an apparent patsy for a suspect. And finally there is the history of false flags going back hundreds if not thousands of years. The only two likely scenarios are either he was drugged out of his mind into doing the shooting, or more likely he wasn’t even there and was left waiting in the garage, in his clown outfit to be arrested. In any case, don’t believe me or Alex Jones or whoever, just do your own research, stay open minded and decide for yourself what really happened in Colorado.
