Operation Northwoods

Operation Northwoods

Operation Northwoods was a plan proposed by CIA to commit genuine acts of terrorism on the U.S. soil, going as far as paint MiG jets in Cuban colors and markings to conduct some of these attacks and blame it on Cuba, to create public support for a war against the nation, which had recently become communist under Fidel Castro. John F Kennedy rejected this proposal and removed the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
