Operation Northwoods: A Glimpse into The Deep State Operations

Some of you may or may not have heard of this Operation, but back in the heat of the Cold War and around the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis, our illustrious leaders lurking in the shadows of what is now known as the swamp, sat in one of their secured locations and created what many would not think our government was even capable of doing.  

Operation Northwoods remains one of the most controversial and shocking episodes in the history of American military planning. Conceived in the early 1960s, during the height of the Cold War, this proposed operation is a stark reminder of the lengths to which governments might consider going in the pursuit of their geopolitical objectives. This blog post aims to shed light on the background, details, and implications of Operation Northwoods, exploring its place in the broader context of Cold War tensions and its lasting impact on public trust and military ethics. 


The early 1960s were marked by escalating tensions between the United States and Cuba. For those that have read the book by David Talbot called The Devil's Chessboard, you are likely very familiar with the work of Allen Dulles and his CIA. If not, I would HIGHLY recommend you read this book as it will enlighten you as to what and who we are dealing with today.

The Cuban Revolution of 1959, which brought Fidel Castro to power, had quickly soured US-Cuban relations, culminating in the failed Bay of Pigs invasion in April 1961 (Allen Dulles' work). In this climate of heightened animosity and fear of communist expansion driven by the Deep State, US military and intelligence agencies were under intense pressure to devise strategies to remove Castro from power and neutralize the perceived threat to American interests in the Western Hemisphere. It should be noted that JFK was not for this action and it was Dulles who went rogue in planning this CIA Operation, which ultimately failed. Dulles would later be relieved from his duty by JFK for his action in the Bay of Pigs. It should also be noted Dulles is thought to be the mastermind behind the assassination of JFK, but we will leave that for another time.    

The Plan 

Operation Northwoods was a proposed plan developed by the United States Department of Defense (DoD) in lock-step with the CIA and the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) in 1962. The operation called for a series of covert and overt actions to create a pretext for military intervention in Cuba. These actions included staging false flag operations, such as simulated or actual acts of sabotage and terrorism against US military and civilian targets - INSIDE THE UNITED STATES. The planners contemplated sinking boats of Cuban refugees, hijacking planes, bombing American cities, and even causing U.S. military casualties. The objective was to fabricate a sense of threat emanating from Cuba, thereby justifying an invasion to overthrow Castro.

Revelation and Rejection 

The existence of Operation Northwoods was not widely known until the 1990s when the document detailing the plan was declassified. The plan itself never progressed beyond the proposal stage. President John F. Kennedy and his administration rejected the Operation Northwoods proposals, choosing not to pursue any of the suggested actions. The rejection of Operation Northwoods is often cited as evidence of Kennedy's caution and restraint in the face of military pressure, a decision that stands in contrast to the more aggressive strategies advocated by some of his military advisors.

The very notion that officials at the highest levels of the American government considered staging acts of terrorism against their own citizens to manipulate public opinion and justify military action is deeply unsettling. Now, I know many of you are probably noodling the idea around 9/11 and the fact that we used the attacks on that day to justify going to war against Iraq and Afghanistan, much like the scenarios listed above.

Knowing now what we know about Bush Sr., his involvement with the Skull and Crossbones as well as his plan for a New World Order. Not to mention his role as the Director of the CIA (1976-1977) and the fact his son was the current President of the United States at the time of the 9/11 attacks, one can quickly assess that this notion is not so far outside of something they would indeed orchestrate. 


The revelation of Operation Northwoods has had a lasting impact on public perception of the military and intelligence communities. It has fueled conspiracy theories and skepticism about government narratives and intentions, contributing to a climate of distrust. At the same time, the operation's exposure has underscored the value of transparency, accountability, and the need for rigorous ethical standards in the conduct of national security affairs. Something that is all but gone with our current government. 


Operation Northwoods is a stark reminder of a turbulent period in American history, reflecting the extreme strategies contemplated in the name of national security. If one thinks that the shadow government known as the Deep State doesn't already have a similar plan sitting on the desk of our now President Biden who is clearly a Deep State puppet, then you haven't been paying close attention to their concerns about return the of President Trump. Don't think for a second that all option aren't on the table. 

God bless. 

Monkey out.
