Rumsfeld Plans to Encourage Terror Attacks

This article from the Los Angeles Times describes the activities of the P2OG, a proposed new "Super-Intelligence Support Activity" force:

"Among other things, this body would launch secret operations aimed at "stimulating reactions" among terrorists and states possessing weapons of mass destruction -- that is, for instance, prodding terrorist cells into action and exposing themselves to "quick-response" attacks by U.S. forces."

Anybody remember Operation Northwoods? This was a plan presented by the Joint Chiefs to the Kennedy Administration in 1963 to stage some terrorism, providing a "helpful wave of national indignation," and thereby justify an invasion of Cuba. "The whole point of a democracy is to have leaders responding to the public will, and here this is the complete reverse, the military trying to trick the American people into a war that they want but that nobody else wants," writes James Bamford, whose book Body of Secrets revealed the 40 year old plan.
