Operation Northwoods redux?

Can the roots of the War On Terror be traced to the insane anti-Castro campaign known as 'Operation Northwoods'?
For anyone who hasn't done so yet, I urge you to do a little searching around and review the buzz surrounding a set of Pentagon planning documents referred to as Operation Northwoods.

In a nutshell, there is sound documentation that the Pentagon has kicked around the idea of inventing sham 'terrorist campaigns' as a means to whip up public support for illegal American expansionism. Let me clarify: Our military government arranges American deaths via 'Terrorist Activity', then uses those deaths to justify it's political/economic agenda. (war and more war)

Now granted, this was the Kennedy Administration. But given the craven way the Bush Junta has capitalized on 9/11, given the transparency of the tissue of lies this government uses to mask its combined home- and abroad- agendas, you do have to wonder. Me, I'm not putting anything past them.

Look at Rumsfeld next time you see him talking. Look at him right in the dead, carplike eyes, and ask yourself if it's possible.

Paranoia? Does that term have a meaning any longer?

If the above is of interest...

Here's a good place to start:

That will give you source info. on Northwoods if you don't know what that is, and will also point you towards some of the first news stories on the so-called "Proactive, Preemptive Operations Group," or P2OG. P2OG is discussed at the bottom of the posts fund at the link above.
