In a not so surprising revelation, given what we know of Operation Northwoods and other information uncovered in government documents, the released JFK files have also given us documents that show there was talk of the Central Intelligence Agency carrying out a false flag operation, which was suggested by then Attorney General Robert Kennedy, the president’s brother.
In a three-page memo, members of the National Security Council wrote, “There is a possibility that such aircraft could be used in a deception operation designed to confuse enemy planes in the air, to launch a surprise attack against enemy installations or in a provocation operation in which Soviet aircraft would appear to attack US or friendly installations to provide an excuse for U.S. intervention.”
In other words, these would be used to create a false flag attack to drag the US into war with Russia.
Kennedy thought the US should get their hands on several Soviet military aircraft or manufacture their own. Among the aircraft discussed being used were the Mig-17, Mig-19 and Il-14.
Additionally, the cost was going to then be borne by the American people would be from $3.5 million for six American planes resembling a Mig-17 from a distance, to $26-$44 million for a Mig-19 copy that non-specialists could mistake for the real thing from the outside.

Here is the full document:
The CIA suggested acquiring original Soviet aircraft either through pilot defection or by buying them from a non-member of the Warsaw Pact, the document said. It also presented three scenarios in which the ‘Soviet’ warplanes could be used, including operations to confuse enemy planes in the air or attack enemy installations, and “a provocation operation in which Soviet aircraft would appear to attack US or friendly installations to provide an excuse for US intervention.”
The ‘Special Group (Augmented) ,’ which held the meeting, included Attorney General Robert Kennedy, CIA Director John McCone, National Security Adviser McGeorge Bundy, and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Lyman Lemnitzer, The Daily Caller said citing the CIA Encyclopedia. President Kennedy and Secretary of State Dean Rusk were not members, but would attend meetings.
The existence of a false flag plan involving fake Soviet warplanes was revealed in a 2001 book by Robert Dallek, ‘An Unfinished Life: John F. Kennedy, 1917-1963.’ The book attributes the idea to CIA Director McCone.
Seems to me that people who bash “conspiracy theorists” should always take a step back and consider what has happened in history, and if this was going on in the 60s, consider that amount of corruption that now exists in our country and consider what takes place in our country where the political elite are willing to attack the people’s rights and draw them into unconstitutional wars.
