Washington’s Blog ‘suggests’ that a false flag scenario may be headed our way. (for the uninitiated, a false flag is a reported inflammatory action by another, warranting a response, usually ending in military action. It turns our that the inflammatory action never actually happened – The Gulf of Tonkin incident which precipitated the Vietnam War is a good example. Saddam Hussein proceeding toward nuclear munitions has been held by some as another, although that debate continues).
What I fear the most is a false flag – something happening where one of our ships goes down, or there’s a plane that goes down, and of course it HAD to be the Iranians, you know, for sure, for certain. – Ron Paul
Daniel Ellsberg – the famous Pentagon Papers whistleblower – said “if there is another terror attack, “I believe the president will get what he wants”, which includes war with Iran.
Former high-level CIA officer Michael Scheuer – who was the head of the CIA unit tasked with capturing Bin Laden – says that Israel or Saudi Arabia could be setting up Iran as a way to foment war 3
Of course, Iran isn’t the only issue ripe for exploitation. Immigration? The Drug War? Gun Control? (oh, wait, they already used Fast & Furious as an excuse for more gun control!)

The question then becomes, in this instantaneous Internet age, if ‘something’ appears to have come down the pike, is it real, or something gamed-up to force our hand? And, if a false flag, by whom? Will we have the time for educated second-guessing?
And whose agenda is being served?
