A Diabolic False Flag Empire: A Review of David Ray Griffin’s The American Trajectory: Divine or Demonic?

The past is not dead; it is people who are sleeping.  The current night and daymares that we are having arise out of murders lodged deep in our past that have continued into the present.  No amount of feigned amnesia will erase the bloody truth of American history, the cheap grace we bestow upon ourselves.  We have, as Harold Pinter said in his Nobel address, been feeding on “a vast tapestry of lies” that surrounds us, lies uttered by nihilistic leaders and their media mouthpieces for a very long time.  We have, or should have, bad consciences for not acknowledging being active or silent accomplices in the suppression of truth and the vicious murdering of millions at home and abroad.

But, as Pinter said, “I believe that despite the enormous odds which exist, unflinching, unswerving, fierce intellectual determination, as citizens, to define the real truth of our lives and our societies is a crucial obligation which devolves upon us all. It is in fact mandatory.”

No one is more emblematic of this noble effort than David Ray Griffin, who, in book after book since the attacks of 11 September 2001, has meticulously exposed the underside of the American empire and its evil masters.  His persistence in trying to reach people and to warn them of the horrors that have resulted is extraordinary.  Excluding his philosophical and theological works, this is his fifteenth book since 2004 on these grave issues of life and death and the future of the world.

In this masterful book, he provides a powerful historical argument that right from the start with the arrival of the first European settlers, this country, despite all the rhetoric about it having been divinely founded and guided, has been “more malign that benign, more demonic than divine.”  He chronologically presents this history, supported by meticulous documentation, to prove his thesis.  In his previous book, Bush and Cheney: How They Ruined America and the World, Griffin cataloged the evil actions that flowed from the inside job/false flag attacks of September 11th, while in this one – a prequel – he offers a lesson in American history going back centuries, and he shows that one would be correct in calling the United States a “false flag empire.”

The attacks of 11 September 2001 are the false flag fulcrum upon which his two books pivot. Their importance cannot be overestimated, not just for their inherent cruelty that resulted in thousands of innocent American deaths, but since they became the justification for the United States’ ongoing murderous campaigns termed “the war on terror” that have brought death to millions of people around the world.  An international array of expendable people.  Terrifying as they were, and were meant to be, they have many precedents, although much of this history is hidden in the shadows.  Griffin shines a bright light on them, with most of his analysis focused on the years 1850-2018.

As a theological and philosophical scholar, he is well aware of the great importance of society’s need for religious legitimation for its secular authority, a way to offer its people a shield against terror and life’s myriad fears through a protective myth that has been used successfully by the United States to terrorize others.  He shows how the terms by which the U.S. has been legitimated as God’s “chosen nation” and Americans as God’s “chosen people” have changed over the years as secularization and pluralism have made inroads.  The names have changed, but the meaning has not. God is on our side, and when that is so, the other side is cursed and can be killed by God’s people, who are always battling el diabalo.

He exemplifies this by opening with a quote from George Washington’s first Inaugural Address where Washington speaks of “the Invisible Hand” and “Providential agency” guiding the country, and by ending with Obama saying “I believe in American exceptionalism with every fiber of my being.”  In between we hear Andrew Jackson say that “Providence has showered on this favored land blessings without number” and Henry Cabot Lodge in 1900 characterize America’s divine mission as “manifest destiny.”  The American religion today is American Exceptionalism, an updated euphemism for the old-fashioned “God’s New Israel” or the “Redeemer Nation.”

At the core of this verbiage lies the delusion that the United States, as a blessed and good country, has a divine mission to spread “democracy” and “freedom” throughout the world, as Hilary Clinton declared during the 2016 presidential campaign when she said that “we are great because we are good,” and in 2004 when George W. Bush said, “Like generations before us, we have a calling from beyond the stars to stand for freedom.”   Such sentiments could only be received with sardonic laughter by the countless victims made “free” by America’s violent leaders, now and then, as Griffin documents.

Having established the fact of America’s claim to divine status, he then walks the reader through various thinkers who have taken sides on the issue of the United States being benign or malign.  This is all preliminary to the heart of the book, which is a history lesson documenting the malignancy at the core of the American trajectory.

“American imperialism is often said to have begun in 1898, when Cuba and the Philippines were the main prizes,” he begins.  “What was new at this time, however, was only that America took control of countries beyond the North American continent.”  The “divine right” to seize others’ lands and kill them started long before, and although no seas were crossed in the usual understanding of imperialism, the genocide of Native Americans long preceded 1898.  So too did the “manifest destiny” that impelled war with Mexico and the seizure of its land and the expansion west to the Pacific.  This period of empire building depended heavily on the “other great crime against humanity” that was the slave trade, wherein it is estimated that 10 million Africans died, in addition to the sick brutality of slavery itself.  “No matter how brutal the methods, Americans were instruments of divine purposes,” writes Griffin.  And, he correctly adds, it is not even true that America’s overseas imperialistic ventures only started in 1898, for in the 1850s Commodore Perry forced “the haughty Japanese” to open their ports to American commerce through gunboat diplomacy.

Then in 1898 the pace of overseas imperial expansion picked up dramatically with what has been called “The Spanish-American War” that resulted in the seizure of Cuba and the Philippines and the annexing of Hawaii.  Griffin says these wars could more accurately be termed “the wars to take Spanish colonies.”  His analysis of the brutality and arrogance of these actions makes the reader realize that My Lai and other more recent atrocities have a long pedigree that is part of an institutional structure, and while Filipinos and Cubans and so many others were being slaughtered, Griffin writes, “Anticipating Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld’s declaration that ‘we don’t do empire,’ [President] McKinley said that imperialism is ‘foreign to the temper and genius of this free and generous people.’”

Then as now, perhaps mad laughter is the only response to such unadulterated bullshit, as Griffin quotes Mark Twain saying that it would be easy creating a flag for the Philippines:

We can have just our usual flag, with the white stripes painted black and the stars replaced by the skull and cross-bones.

That would have also worked for Columbia, Panama, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Nicaragua, and other countries subjugated under the ideology of the Monroe Doctrine; wherever freedom  and national independence raised its ugly head, the United States was quick to intervene with its powerful anti-revolutionary military and its financial bullying.  In the Far East the “Open Door” policy was used to loot China, Japan, and other countries.

But all this was just the beginning.  Griffin shows how Woodrow Wilson, the quintessentially devious and treacherous liberal Democrat, who claimed he wanted to keep America out of WW I, did  just the opposite to make sure the U.S. would come to dominate the foreign markets his capitalist masters demanded.  Thus Griffin explores how Wilson conspired with Winston Churchill to use the sinking of the Lusitania as a casus belli and how the Treaty of Versailles’s harsh treatment of Germany set the stage for WW II.

He tells us how in the intervening years between the world wars the demonization of Russia and the new Soviet Union was started. This deprecation of Russia, which is roaring at full-throttle today, is a theme that recurs throughout The American Trajectory.  Its importance cannot be overemphasizedWilson called the Bolshevik government “a government by terror,” and in 1918 “sent thousands of troops into northern and eastern Russia, leaving them there until 1920.”

That the U. S. invaded Russia is a fact rarely mentioned and even barely known to Americans.  Perhaps awareness of it and the century-long demonizing of the U.S.S.R./Russia would enlighten those who buy the current anti-Russia propaganda called “Russiagate.”

To match that “divine” act of imperial intervention abroad, Wilson fomented the Red Scare at home, which, as Griffin says, had lasting and incalculable importance because it created the American fear of radical thought and revolution that exists to this very day and serves as a justification for supporting brutal dictators around the world and crackdowns on freedom at home (as is happening today).

He gives us brief summaries of some dictators the U.S has supported, and reminds us of the saying of that other liberal Democrat, Franklin Roosevelt, who famously said of the brutal Nicaraguan dictator Anastasio Somoza, that “he may be a son-of-a-bitch, but he’s our son-of-a-bitch.”  And thus Somoza would terrorize his own people for 43 years.  The same took place in Cuba, Chile, Iran, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, etc.  The U.S. also supported Mussolini, did nothing to prevent Franco’s fascist toppling of the Spanish Republic, and supported the right-wing government of Chiang-Kai Shek in its efforts to dominate China.

It is a very dark and ugly history that confirms the demonic nature of American actions around the world.

Then Griffin explodes the many myths about the so-called “Good War” – WW II.  He explains the lies told about the Japanese “surprise” attack on Pearl Harbor; how Roosevelt wished to get the U.S. into the war, both in the Pacific and in Europe; and how much American economic self-interest lay behind it.  He critiques the myth that America selflessly wished to defend freedom loving people in their battles with brutal, fascist regimes.  That, he tells us, is but a small part of the story:

This, however, is not an accurate picture of American policies during the Second World War.  Many people were, to be sure, liberated from terrible tyrannies by the Allied victories.  But the fact that these people benefited was an incidental outcome, not a motive of American policies.  These policies, as [Andrew] Bacevich discovered, were based on ‘unflagging self-interest.’

Then there are the conventional and atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  Nothing could be more demonic, as Griffin shows.  If these cold-blooded mass massacres of civilians and the lies told to justify them don’t convince a reader that there has long been something radically evil at the heart of American history, nothing will.  Griffin shows how Truman and his advisers and top generals, including Dwight Eisenhower and Admiral William D. Leahy, Truman’s Chief of Staff, knew the dropping of the atomic bombs were unnecessary to end the war, but they did so anyway.

He reminds us of Clinton’s Secretary of State Madeline Albright’s response to the question whether she thought the deaths of more than 500, 000 Iraqi children as a result of Clinton’s crippling economic sanctions were worth it: “But, yes, we think the price is worth it.”  (Notice the “is,” the ongoing nature of these war crimes, as she spoke.)  But this is the woman who also said, “We are the indispensable nation.  We stand tall…”

Griffin devotes other chapters to the creation of the Cold War, American imperialism during the Cold War, Post-Cold War interventions, the Vietnam War, the drive for global dominance, and false flag operations, among other topics.

As for false flag operations, he says, “Indeed, the trajectory of the American Empire has relied so heavily on these types of attacks that one could describe it as a false flag empire.”  In the false flag chapter and throughout the book, he discusses many of the false flags the U.S. has engaged in, including Operation Gladio, the U.S./NATO terrorist operation throughout Europe that Swiss historian Daniele Ganser has extensively documented, an operation meant to discredit communists and socialists.  Such operations were directly connected to the OSS, the CIA and its director Allen Dulles, his henchman James Jesus Angleton, and their Nazi accomplices, such as General Reinhard Gehlen.  In one such attack in 1980 at the Bologna, Italy railway station, these U.S. terrorists killed 85 people and wounded 20 others.  As with the bombs dropped by Saudi Arabia today on Yemeni school children, the explosive used was made for the U.S. military.  About these documented U.S. atrocities, Griffin says:

These revelations show the falsity of an assumption widely held by Americans.  While recognizing that the US military sometimes does terrible things to their enemies, most Americans have assumed that US military leaders would not order the killing of innocent civilians in allied countries for political purposes.  Operation Gladio showed this assumption to be false.

He is right, but I would add that the leaders behind this were civilian, as much as, or more than military.

In the case of “Operation Northwoods,” it was the Joint Chiefs of Staff who presented to President Kennedy this false flag proposal that would provide justification for a U.S. invasion of Cuba.  It would have involved the killing of American citizens on American soil, bombings, plane hijacking, etc.  President Kennedy considered such people and such plans insane, and he rejected it as such.  His doing so tells us much, for many other presidents would have approved it.  And again, how many Americans are aware of this depraved proposal that is documented and easily available?  How many even want to contemplate it?  For the need to remain in denial of the facts of history and believe in the essential goodness of America’s rulers is a very hard nut to crack.  Griffin has written a dozen books about 11 September 2001, trying to do exactly that.

If one is willing to embrace historical facts, however, then this outstanding book will open one’s eyes to the long-standing demonic nature of the actions of America’s rulers.  A reader cannot come away from its lucidly presented history unaffected, unless one lives in a self-imposed fantasy world.  The record is clear, and Griffin lays it out in all its graphic horror. Which is not to say that the U.S. has not “done both good and bad things, so it could not sensibly be called purely divine or purely demonic.” Questions of purity are meant to obfuscate basic truths. And the question he asks in his subtitle – Divine or Demonic? – is really a rhetorical question, and when it comes to the “trajectory” of American history, the demonic wins hands down.

I would be remiss if I didn’t point out one place where Griffin fails the reader.  In his long chapter on Vietnam, which is replete with excellent facts and analyses, he makes a crucial mistake, which is unusual for him.  This mistake appears in a four page section on President Kennedy’s policies on Vietnam.  In those pages, Griffin relies on Noam Chomsky’s terrible book – Rethinking Camelot: JFK, the Vietnam War, and US Political Culture (1993), a book wherein Chomsky shows no regard for evidence or facts – to paint Kennedy as being in accord with his advisers, the CIA, and the military regarding Vietnam.  This is factually false. Griffin should have been more careful and have understood this.  The truth is that Kennedy was besieged and surrounded by these demonic people, who were intent on isolating him, disregarding his instructions, and murdering him to achieve their goals in Vietnam.  In the last year of his life, JFK had taken a radical turn toward peace-making, not only in Vietnam, but with the Soviet Union, Cuba, and around the globe.  Such a turn was anathema to the war lovers. Thus he had to die.  Contrary to Chomsky’s deceptions, motivated by his hatred of Kennedy and perhaps something more sinister (he also backs the Warren Commission, thinks JFK’s assassination was no big deal, and accepts the patently false official version of the attacks of 11 September 2001), Griffin should have emphatically asserted that Kennedy had issued NSAM 263 on October 11, 1963 calling for the withdrawal of American troops from Vietnam, and that after he was assassinated a month later, Lyndon Johnson reversed that withdrawal order with NSAM 273.  Chomsky notwithstanding, all the best scholarship and documentary evidence proves this.  And for Griffin, a wonderful scholar, to write that with the change from Kennedy to Johnson that “this change of presidents would bring no basic change in policy” is so shockingly wrong that I imagine Griffin, a man passionate about truth, simply slipped up and got sloppy here.  For nothing could be further from the truth.

Ironically, Griffin makes a masterful case for his thesis, while forgetting the one pivotal man, President John Kennedy, who sacrificed his life in an effort to change the trajectory of American history from its demonic course.

It is one mistake in an otherwise very important and excellent book that should be required reading for anyone who doubts the evil nature of this country’s continuing foreign policy.  Those who are already convinced should also read it, for it provides a needed historical resource and impetus to help change the trajectory that is transporting the world toward nuclear oblivion, if continued.

If – a fantastic wish! – The American Trajectory: Divine or Demonic? were required reading in American schools and colleges, perhaps a new generation would arise to change our devils into angels, the arc of America’s future moral universe toward justice, and away from being the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today, as it has been for so very long.

  1. Thanks Ed,
    David Ray Griffin has been a guiding light for me as well along this nightmare since 2001. I went to see him speak in Boston once. He has been a lonely voice in the wilderness of truth.
    I will make sure to read this latest from him. AND, like you, disappointed in the JFK/Vietnam section. I just heard Chomsky again recently make that false claim that there was no change in Vietnam policy between JFK and LBJ. Chomsky was also presented, in person, fully detailed info regarding 911 – material by AE911Truth. I admire him in many respects but it seems he can’t integrate false flag events into his system-based analysis.
    I’m so grateful to researchers like Jim DiEugenio who have made this clear.
    NSAM263 should’ve been the beginning of the end of that terrible colonial intrusion.
    peace, Walt

    1. Thanks, Walt. David is great, and I consider those few pages in his current great book an anomaly. I know he loves JFK and doesn’t trust that Chomsky book he references – thus he got a bit sloppy, in my estimation. Chomsky makes no sense about 11 Sept or JFK. He has plenty of company on the left, people doing work that supports “the deep state,” what ever you want to call these people. Ed

  2. Thanks so much Ed for correcting the JFK mis-information. I’ve read a number of Griffin’s books and much appreciate his work on 9/11. That said, this is no small detail you’re correcting here, and it’s much needed.

    Also, while I have great respect for Chomsky’s work on media and empire,
    I part ways with him at his stubborn refusal to re-examine the record and milieux surrounding JFK’s assassination. I also find it quite amazing to watch video of him morphing into a pretty convincing semi-hysterical Glen Beck impersonation when anyone dares mention 9/11 truth concerns. This is someone who I respect for his almost hyper-logical look at the historical record on empire, yet this rational persona completely disappears when the topic is 9/11. It’s too bad Griffin relied on dated Chomsky analysis for his JFK section. Thanks for the review and corrections.

    1. Gary, I know David Griffin loves JFK and his book is terrific. His work is outstanding and so important. I feel he just slipped up in these few pages, but felt compelled to mention it because JFK is the one powerful man who defied the demonic in the name of the divine and Chomsky’s hatred of him needed to be noted. Chomsky is consumed with disdain for Kennedy and of course those who question 11 Sept, such as David Griffin. Ed

  3. Now an old man and a two-tour veteran of Vietnam (5th Special Forces Gp) I can’t think of a single war (excepting out own war of independence, (in which a grand total of 5,100 men died) that improved the lot of our nation or mankind in general. Our Civil War slaughtered more men than killed in all the other wars in our history combined (600 thousand) and left this nation with psychic scars which persist to this very day. WW I was an idiotic war in which we had no stake whatever, though Woodrow Wilson thought it would “make the world safe for Democracy.” The viciously unjust Treaty of Versailles, which sought to punish Germany and subsequently bankrupted that nation led to WW II, which saved the most evil empire in world history in world history, a nation which murdered 10-30 million hapless Russians and effectively imprisoned the rest, then led to led to Red China which finally outdid Stalin’s body count by killing as many as 130 million Chinese, and finally ended up with Pol Pot’s murder of fully half the population of Cambodia. To be fair to old Pol he had only he had only about four million Cambodes to work with, so his relative failure in mass murder can be forgiven.

  4. I am unable to believe that JFK character assassination is a “slip up”.

    If Griffin is otherwise meticulous in research, determined to present nothing but truth in his writing (expected of a theologian or any honest man, surely), this is too disturbing to easily dismiss as unintentional error.

    A young person (not born or very young in 1963) who accesses this false description may lose curiosity about JFK, seen as one more death-dealing American politician.

    But that assassination and 9-11 are part of one multi-staged event, the construction of a tyrannical NWO.

    The misrepresentation of JFK implies that there is no possibility of goodness, decency, or honesty to look forward to in American leadership. As there was never a statesman of conscience, there never will be one.

    However, that the goodness of JFK was nipped in the bud does not negate its existence. Recklessly (deliberately?) claiming that JFK was no better than the others does.

    It is a strange position for one supposedly dedicated to truth, to be so “sloppy” about a key figure and moment in our history. It seems either impossible or unconscionable.

    Many truth seekers regard Chomsky as “controlled opposition”. A bit of poison in otherwise good material can effectively derail a search for substance. Can this have escaped Griffin’s notice?

    A question. Why multiple expensive books to elucidate the falseness of the official explanation of that day, when one would suffice? or a single article or video.

    A pamphlet would suffice.

    Perhaps updated editions of a book aimed at being comprehensive would include new evidence…but several books?

    I realize there are various aspects of the event to be discussed, but the sheer multiplicity is a distraction.

    Buildings and contents that turned largely to dust, including central cores of the towers, leaving tiny little debris piles after coming to earth in virtually free-fall time are sufficient indication that the official story is bogus.

    Investigation of the physical event was needed from the beginning, and many competent researchers have contributed to the body of evidence.

    It has also been crucial to determine and reveal who had control of security that ought to have prevented the events of that day; and who had the capacity, resources and authority to coordinate and execute the necessary operations as well as to over-ride and control security.

    Much research on those topics, central to the crime, is available.

    I have not read Griffin’s books. I would not discourage anyone who wants to do so, but I am put off by the above considerations. I would suggest that one who does access Griffin’s material, should also access other sources, untainted by a disregard for the truth and significance of John Kennedy.

    1. Yvonne,

      Thanks very much for all your thoughts. I agree that the JFK assassination are the two key events. And I agree that a lot has been written about both and that too much leads to confusion when the truth about both events is quite obvious. As for David Ray Griffin, he realizes he really was sloppy in those few pages re JFK, and is changing them. It is a sign of great hope that such a distinguished writer can see where he was wrong and agrees to change it.
      Best wishes, Ed

    2. Yvonne,
      Your comment is wonderfully insightful. For Griffin to misrepresent a divine moment as demonic is a very very serious problem. For him to refuse to remedy the problem when it is pointed out to him,which is not the case, reflects a much deeper problem morally and intellectually. Since Ed left his reply about Griffin correcting the problem, more information has come out which substantiates your view.

  5. Politicians are legal constitutional criminals.

    They forget completely that they are servants of the people; they start behaving as if they are the masters of the people.

    They are the most unqualified people in the world.

    Their only quality is that they can manage to befool the poor masses.

    The politicians’ power, is in your unawareness.

    Rather than being in power, they should be behind bars.

    If the world wants to be at peace, politicians should disappear entirely from this planet.

    They are the enemies of humanity…


  6. A very informative review, thanks Dr. Curtin,

    Strange that everybody here is so particular about the one slip up ( JFK´s angelic nature) and ignores the main purpose or subject of the book. Is this your American subconscious denial at play?

    In my Russian thinking, the US is not uniquely demonic but uniquely powerful. There is no demonism here, but rather the banality of evil made possible by the huge US military and economic power. Seen from Russia, America is an evil empire, even if to many Russians it is very attractive and seducive as a place to live and thrive.

    As an aside, Chiang kai chek was not right wing but only to the right of Mao. Not quite the same thing.

  7. An aside to my main comment:
    During the Soviet times, most people considered our medias’ reporting on the unpleasant or criminal sides of American military and intelligence apparatus as mere propaganda. Today, we discover that Soviet propagandists did not lie at all because they didn’t have to. The unvarnished reality of American global goodness is and was sufficiently ugly.

  8. Thank you Ed. Found your analysis on ZH of all places! I shared this essay on my FB for other like minded.

    I believe everything, has been a pursuit of Monopoly. NWO, Deep State, etc, are just descriptions of such. Much like Fleming’s description of SPECTRE, a cabal of 1% inbred’s chasing absolute control. Banking is their goto mechanism.Rather predictable, to me.

    I wrote this brief synopsis after digging into some of the radical libertarian stuff.

    #BankstersAreTheRealTerrorists – Banks “loan” money they do not have (fractional reserve lending). They “loan” (create out of thin air) “money” (debt) to people, to business, to nations, with interest (usury). Now, after many generations of this, of these banksters using their fake “money” (fiat) to buy up the entire world’s resources, they OWN the entire world (monopoly)

    Friedrich Von Hayek, Austrian economist, proposed a 4 plank plan to establish economic “freedom”. Of course, that “freedom” was only for the inbred elitists, the “rentier” class, the “new” feudal lords. His ideas support and justify the creation of absolute monopoly of the entire world’s resources, by a few. Monopoly always was the real intention, the people’s only real enemy. No wonder Hayek was found, then promoted, by Rockefeller!

    “Competition is a sin” J. Rockefeller.

    Hayek’s plan: peddled as Libertarian, supporting “Liberty”, but based on the deceitful notion that all “government” is evil and root of all corruption. A self serving lie. Government is the people, established by the People’s consent, but the monopolist’s have hijacked government, use “government” as a simple false target, a straw man, a distraction, a curtain to hide behind. In practice, government today, and for generations, is merely a puppet manipulated by the money masters, pay to play, bought and sold to the highest bidders of the deep state.

    Hayek’s Ideas (planks)

    1) Deregulate global financial markets – DONE

    2) Deregulate global trade – DONE

    3) Bankrupt all sovereigns and nations with fiat (empty, unbacked, meaningless) paper “debt” (thereby neuter a nation’s capability to enforce laws – eliminate the people’s ability to defend against being consumed by the 1%) – DONE

    then lastly, the kill shot:

    4) Privatize Everything. recreate us all as permanent rent payers of even the most basic necessities of life (Air, water, food, shelter). – Almost COMPLETE


    #PrivatizationIsTheft – privatization today is STRICTLY about stealing money from the public treasury and giving it to the inbred 1% rent-seeking parasites (extreme socialism for the billionaires, NOTHING for the people)

    Implemented globally by force, using their “super sovereign” (above the laws of nations) global banking control entities, WTO, WB, IMF, BIS, etc. and of course, actual militaries.

    We are 99.99% there.

    we are already debt slaves to a global 1%, they have already monopolized everything.


    this condition will not, nor can not, be changed with BS “elections” run by the very 1% we seek to depose.

  9. Mr. Curtin,
    Thank you for this great review article, I have found Mr. Griffin’s work informative.
    I believe our current national and in many cases our personal dilemmas are caused by our nations historical shadow coming home to roost, and it’s weight is great and terrible.
    With some of us conscious of our many worldly atrocities and many more more only affected in the subconscious, regardless the worlds waking up to our lip service to freedom VS. our historical river of blood is in my opinion our deserved karmic boomerang, KRACK !!!!
    Thanks for the great read.

  10. Ed,

    Thanks for the detailed review of David’s most recent book. I wasn’t familiar w/you until coming across this on zerohedge. Glad to hear that you, or someone, convinced him to revise the Kennedy/Vietnam section. David’s some kind of prodigious truth-teller isn’t he. I had the good fortune of receiving his advice concerning an early version of my screenplay/novella False Flag, which relies heavily on his often quoted “Scientific Miracles” piece. As for Chomsky, I agree w/your dark assessment. I’ve seen video of him – which may or may not still be available – saying about the 9/11 cover-up, “There isn’t one and even if there were it wouldn’t be significant.” (Those may not be his exact words but are very close.)

    Following is the tweet by which I summarize False Flag and its availability on scribd.com at no cost: Story vs. Denial. Fact-based fiction re 9/11 & CONTINUING false flags: http://www.scribd.com/doc/142983438/FALSE-FLAG: FREE on scribd, $.99 on Amazon.
