Interesting and thought provoking information. Thanks for writing this piece. False flag events, political manipulation and exploitation of crises are not as uncommon as we might think. Think- the world as a chessboard. As a strategy technique, those in power understand how quickly the masses will change their mind on an issue or be willing to give up personal freedoms when fear is present. The current gun control efforts being a case in point.
Your letter raises two questions in my mind. First, how tightly can we hold to the belief that only one side of the political spectrum uses these tactics? As you say, “Party Politics 101.” One side clearly loses any chance of success if they decide to play fair. I’ve already settled that question in my mind. My voter registration is independent.
My second question is an obvious one and one I have not yet answered for myself. That is, does the end ever justify the means? Hitler was defeated, the Jewish people were liberated and the world-wide spread of an evil regime was thwarted. I’m not sure that could have happened without us. Should a leader ever circumvent the will of the people, even with deceit, if necessary to a greater good? Greater good, of course, being a subjective reality.
Thanks again for this thought provoking letter. As an aside regarding your last published letter, the snake has not bitten yet but we can sure hear the tail rattling.

I remember when this book came out. If I remember correctly it was about 10 years ago. The reason no one hears about it is because it was immediately dismissed by historians. The author (if I remember) didn’t back up his claims, people he claimed said/did things denied them and their was no proof at all on some of the “opinions” given by the author.
I agree with the “end justifies the means”. We would have gotten into the war anyway.
