Why "False Flag"
Conspiracies Aren't Exposed

Military Analysis

A "false flag" conspiracy is a secret design by unnamed individuals to carry out an attack on their own people, and blame it on someone else. Many researchers believe that the US 9/11 and UK 7/7 attacks were carried out by the US and UK governments, then blamed on Middle Eastern patsies as an excuse for launching the "global war."

Houston, May 14 —People tend to think that a large conspiracy—such as a false flag conspiracy—is impossible to hold together because too many people are aware of the secret and are bound to spill the beans. I think otherwise.
For four years I worked with Houston-area police; for four years I worked with the Houston-area media; and for around 20 years I worked with the US military. My experience with all these institutions is that conspiracies are routine and successful— particularly when they have the approval of institution leaders (which they usually do).
Clearly in 9/11 itself we already have a fine example of a false flag event preconceived, executed and covered up with the collaboration of the US military, New York City officials, and the nation's media elite. Different people were involved with the conspiracy in different ways, and to different degrees.
There were probably a few outright traitors behind it all, and far more people who wound up involved in it, but decided to keep their mouths shut. There may well have been hundreds, even thousands of people to became aware of it, and who tried to make reports or interest media, but officials didn't react to the reports and media didn't pick up the story.
There are people like one of my former Ghost Troops, SFC Donald Buswell, who have been active members of the military and actually tried to impede false flag designs. A week after SFC Buswell began to act in concert with Ghost Troop, he nearly died of a freak pulmonary embolism. Coincidence? Likewise, in my own case I was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease—a freak and fatal neurological disorder—after two years of operating against false flag designs. Another coincidence? There seem to be many such coincidences uplifting those who oppose the powers that be.
SFC Buswell is currently the cover story at The Lone Star Iconoclast:
I was on the cover a couple of months ago:
In my opinion, SFC Buswell and I have paid a hell of a price to appear on the cover of The Lone Star Iconoclast. If you want to know more about the false flag efforts that we have opposed, both articles are quite informative. The one about SFC Buswell was written by The Iconoclast's Austin bureau chief, Stephen Webster; the one about me was written by the publisher of America First Books, Major William B. Fox, who is a former Marine Corps officer.
