So I'm reading on ABC News about how the U.S. Military wanted to fake a terrorist attack in order to provide a pretext for invading Cuba back in the 60s. Apparently the plan was not approved by the Kennedy Administration.
"The Joint Chiefs even proposed using the potential death of astronaut John Glenn during the first attempt to put an American into orbit as a false pretext for war with Cuba, the documents show."
Wow. That's really. um. creepy. Perhaps they were simply ahead of their time?Posted by illovich at August 27, 2002 03:03 PM
