As admitted by the U.S. government, recently declassified documents show that in the 1960′s, the American Joint Chiefs of Staff signed off on a plan to blow up AMERICAN airplanes (using an elaborate plan involving the switching of airplanes), and also to commit terrorist acts on American soil, and then to blame it on the Cubans in order to justify an invasion of Cuba.

As Justice Brandeis said in his dissent to Olmstead v. United States, “Government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example.” When the government admits to trying to fool the public into war, it’s no surprise that some people will be suspicious the next time a public act of violence occurs that seems to justify military intervention or a crackdown on civil liberties. It plays upon an old American tradition that Justice Brennan discussed in 1987:
[A]s adamant as my country has been about civil liberties during peacetime, it has a long history of failing to preserve civil liberties when it perceived its national security threatened. This series of failures is particularly frustrating in that it appears to result not from informed and rational decisions that protecting civil liberties would expose the United States to unacceptable security risks, but rather from the episodic nature of our security crises. After each perceived security crises ended, the United States has remorsefully realized that the abrogation of civil liberties was unnecessary. but it has proven unable to prevent itself from repeating the error when the next crisis came along.
