Operation Northwoods

In 1962 senior US military officers proposed staging false pretexts for attacking Cuba. In addition to propaganda campaigns and staged attacks and incidents at US bases in Cuba, the proposed plans included terrorist attacks within the US, the sinking actual refugee boats, the attack of Cuban exiles intended to cause physical injury, the staged downing of a civilian chartered aircraft with college students going on vacation, and the staged downing of a military F101 with planted debris to be found by other unsuspecting members of the US Air Force.

This is must-read US history.
