“False-flag” Meme Goes Mainstream with Boston Marathon Bombing

by Kevin Barrett, for Press TV


On September 11th, 2001, the US media began chanting “Bin Laden” in unison almost from the moment the attack was reported. The possibility that US government insiders had orchestrated the attack – in order to blame Muslims, launch wars on Muslim countries, and seize near-absolute power – was never mentioned.

Bin Laden’s repeated statements that he deplored the 9/11 attacks, considered them un-Islamic, and suspected that American supporters of Israel were behind them failed to penetrate the corporate media bubble. When the FBI definitively stated that Bin Laden was “not wanted” for 9/11 because there was “no hard evidence” of his involvement, the media blacked out the story.

But after the Boston bombings of April 16th, 2013, even the corporate monopoly media could no longer ignore the possibility of a false-flag attack. Yahoo News asked “Who’s behind the Boston Marathon bombings?” and offered 4 theories: (1) Islamic jihadists, (2) Right-wing militia types, (3) the government, and (4) a criminally-insane lone wolf.

Numbers (1), (2), and (4), of course, are the usual suspects. But including (3) “the government” on the suspects list is unprecedented for a mainstream news story reporting on a domestic terror incident.

The false-flag meme’s growing prominence was underlined at Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick’s press conference after the bombings. The first question for Governor Patrick came from Infowars correspondent Dan Bidondi, who asked whether the bombings were “a false-flag staged event..to take away our civil liberties.” Patrick, of course, answered “no.”

Even the Atlantic Monthly, a neocon-lite magazine associated with names like Goldberg and Hitchens, felt compelled to publish a story headlined: “What Is a ‘False Flag’ Attack, and What Does Boston Have to Do with This?” Amazingly, the Atlantic article stated that yes, there is historical precedent for viewing the Boston bombing as a false-flag event. The author, Philip Bump, even admitted: “If the Boston attack had been a ‘false flag’ attack, Gov. Patrick would have responded ‘no’ anyway.”

What has changed since 2001 to bring the false-flag meme into the limelight?

Short answer: The 9/11 truth movement. During the past decade, millions of activists have been working to awaken the American and global publics to the evidence that 9/11 was an American Reichstag Fire. Polls show that 36% of Americans – roughly 100 million people – think it likely that 9/11 was an inside job. Many of these truth-seekers are highly-accomplished scientists, engineers, military and intelligence officers, and other experts. You can meet some of them at PatriotsQuestion911.com and AE911Truth.org.

Since the corporate mainstream media and the foundation-funded pseudo-alternative media have refused to report the facts about 9/11, roughly 100 million Americans consider the media moguls pathological liars. Even among the almost 200 million Americans who are not up-front 9/11 skeptics, the vague sense that something is wrong, and that the media and the politicians are lying, is widespread. A recent Pew Research poll, for example, showed that Americans’ trust in government has fallen to an all-time low: Fewer than one-third of Americans trust the government, while more than two-thirds do not.

As the people lose faith in their government, and the corporate media crumbles into bankruptcy, a vibrant new independent media has sprung up on the internet. The Alex Jones media empire, which pushes the false-flag meme about as hard as it can be pushed, now reaches an estimated five to ten million people. Jeff Rense, Mike Adams, Mike Rivero, Veterans Today, American Free Press, and the foreign-run English language outlets Press TV and Russia Today also reach large and influential audiences with honest reporting about false-flag events.

Today, it isn’t just a few marginalized radical intellectuals who think “false-flag” when they hear about an alleged domestic terror incident. Millions of people are sharing their suspicions about the Boston bombings on Facebook, Twitter, the blogosphere, and internet media in general.

Are they right?

Though it is too early to know for sure, the Boston bombings featured the most important telltale sign of a false-flag op: A terror drill running simultaneously, mirroring the actual attack. As Webster Tarpley has explained in his book 9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA, false-flag attacks such as 9/11 and 7/7 are designed as drills that suddenly “go live.” This allows insiders to plot and execute the attacks under cover of the drills, with the “Team B” bad guys actually carrying out the attacks they were supposedly going to feign.

September 11th, 2001 had been previously designated as by far the biggest special operations day in US history, with a total of 46 pre-planned drills and exercises, including live-fly planes-into-buildings exercises, providing cover for the insider attacks. (Google “Tarpley 46 drills of 9/11” for details.)

July 7th, 2005 also featured terror drills that went live. Peter Power, the UK’s biggest terror consultant, admitted on live television that all of the actual bombs that devastated London that day exploded at the exact times and places envisioned in the drills.

Were the Boston bombings a drill that went live?

Mobile, Alabama TV station Local TV 15 reported:

University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a series of explosions went off, said he thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines.

“They kept making announcements on the loud speaker that it was just a drill and there was nothing to worry about,” Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15. “It seemed like there was some sort of threat, but they kept telling us it was just a drill.”

At 12:53 pm local time, the Boston Globe newspaper tweeted: “Officials: There will be a controlled explosion opposite the library within one minute as part of bomb squad activities.”

Then almost two hours later, at 2:50 p.m., bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three people and injuring more than 100 others.

Just a coincidence? Maybe. But since all of the biggest “terror attacks” in recent US history, including the two World Trade Center bombings and the Oklahoma City bombing, have been inside jobs, and since most of the “terror plots” discovered in the US since 9/11 have been created by the FBI, we have every right to be suspicious.

Terror bombings have only one beneficiary: Governments, and the wealthy families that own them.

As Vincent Vinciguerra, one of the perpetrators of the Operation Gladio terror attacks, explained: “You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple: to force . . . the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security.”

Whatever the truth about the Boston bombings, it seems that the false-flag meme is infiltrating mainstream discourse. And it isn’t going to go away . . . at least not until 9/11 and other false-flag crimes are solved, and effective measures instituted to protect the public against the scourge of false-flag terror.

    You said that “the most important telltale sign of a false-flag op: A terror drill running simultaneously, mirroring the actual attack.”

    There’s 3 large scale terrorism-response exercises coming up in Denver, Portsmouth, N.H., and D.C.
    “Denver or Portsmouth will face either a simulated biological or a chemical weapons attack. The D.C. metropolitan area will respond to a radiological attack drill.”

    I’d recommend that anyone living in those areas ought to move away for the period of May 7 and May 29.


    • CoJonesGrandes  April 22, 2013 at 11:35 am

      Plus one more thing, this is from Ben Fulford’s report today:

      “A member of the Japanese Yakuza was contacted by members of the cabal last week and told to inform the White Dragon Society that “after Kennedy and Bush would come Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and one other.” Since the Boston terror psy-ops included a bombing of the Kennedy Library and the missile attack in Texas took place close to the Bush ranch, the warning seems to be a hint that some major attacks linked to these two other presidents and “one other,” were planned for the near future.”

      I’m not American so I wouldn’t know if Reagan and Clinton have any links with Denver and Portsmouth.

    • CoJonesGrandes  April 22, 2013 at 1:12 pm

      Apologies for my April 22 11:32 am comment on the upcoming terrorism-response exercises in Denver, Portsmouth and DC. The blogger has just posted an old news story from Jan 2006!! Please ignore the worthless heads-up. I shall hang my head in shame 🙁

    • CoJonesGrandes  April 24, 2013 at 9:31 am

      I withdraw my apologies for the now-no-longer-worthless heads-up on the major terrorism drills in 3 major US cities. There is something very strange with that abcnews article which warrants further investigation.

      If you look at the link I gave in my April 22 11:32 am comment:

      That is a reposting of an abcnews article at:

      The top of the article in the abcnews website is obscured by the menu.
      To read the top of the article, I saved the text.
      Now this is the weird bit – the date of the abcnews article keeps changing.

      When I looked at it on 22 April, it was “Jan 7, 2006, 10:00 AM”
      Now it is “May 2, 2004” with no time of day being shown.

      If you read the 12160.info posting, the uploader states that the original news item is from 2002.

      If you read the comments to the 12160.info article, someone said the news was from last year (which would be 2012).

      Could it be that the abcnews article is there to notify the cabal minions but to throw other people off the scent, they keep varying the date? It does seem very unprofessional to have a webpage formatted in such a way that the top of an article is obscured. Something is not adding up. Can you VT guys look into this, please.

    This is the London 7/7 Bombing Re-dux – with a little bit of Dallas 63 thrown in for good measure. The Campus cop shooting is another “J.D.Tippett” – killed to ensure the “suspects” would be shot dead during capture. Dead men don’t talk. These kids, like the ones in London 2005, most likely thought they were part of the terror drill, and were told that the pressure cookers were bomb substitutes they had to place among the crowd. They were reassured by the police announcement that “This is just a drill Folks, stay calm” when they might have sensed that something was not quite right.

    I just had the idea checking FRONTPAGEMAG and guess what? The winners are Ari Lieberman and Yori Yanover (in a linked article from THE JEWISH PRESS) presenting Palestinians chanting about the Boston attacks (THE JEWISH PRESS even has an “illustration image” showing a guy handing out sweets) …


    I wonder if Daniel Pipes will sing the same song.

    Thatcher deceased British PM a loyal friend of Israel who was the 1st Brit PM to visit Israel staying in the King David Hotel scene of a Zionist terrorist attack killing Brit servicemen.

    Look who showed up for her overpriced funeral and which other servants of Israel he met – timing – timing -timing.

    Times of Israel reports

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sarah flew to London on Tuesday night, ahead of the state funeral for former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher on Wednesday.

    During his visit to England, Netanyahu will meet with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Israel Radio reported.

    By Times of Israel staff April 17, 2013, 4:36 am

    Israel Police chief Yohanan Danino and other senior police officers left Israel late Tuesday night, heading to the US to meet with FBI officials and other law enforcement officials in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings.

    Discussions will center on the Boston bombings and deepening professional cooperation between the law enforcement agencies of both countries, Maariv reported.

    At least three other senior officers are accompanying the police chief, in what the paper described as the highest-ranking police delegation Israel sends overseas. The trip had been planned before the Boston blasts, but was refocused in the light of the bombings, the report said, without elaboration.

    On the day of the bombings, a top emergency medicine doctor at the Boston hospital where many of the wounded were being treated credited Israel with training the hospital’s first-response team and readying it to deal with mass-casualty incidents.

      If it would not be such a cheap story Israeli officials could discover that it was an Iranian nuke which misfired 🙂

    Unless TPTB have something much bigger planned,.
    They distract the sheeple with (falseflag) attacks and more knowledgeable people by giving them some crumbs,to keep them busy and deflect attention away from much more dangerous developments.
    Now the possibility of false flags becomes mainstream,it will be hailed as a “victory” for (9/11)truth.
    Like a poisonous lullaby.

    • mommyplayer  April 17, 2013 at 11:30 pm

      I hope “they” arent the ones who released the revealing pictures. That would be poison pudding indeed. My mom watches Fox news and they talked about the pictures tonight on MSM. Fox said they were released from Lord and Taylors establishment, not annonymous, outdoor cameras perhaps.

    • mommyplayer  April 18, 2013 at 8:09 pm

      I just looked at the FBI video and pictures of #1 and #2 but there are no incriminating views. I know the black ops guys look too staged to be real, but what did these guys do wrong? The blown up backpack seemed to match the 4chan photos. I guess its more of that sandy hook tug of war and we are supposed to trust our gubberment on their choice of suspects.

    • mommyplayer  April 18, 2013 at 9:20 pm

      Problem is guy #1 has a grey backpack and guy #2 has a white backpack. The backpack that exploded was black. Copied this from 4chan /pol/ between the trolls. It was staed there that the Lord and Taylor video wasnt available to 4chan and the FBI had it.

    Excerpt from an article:

    Israel Police Chief Yohanan Danino in U.S. meetings with FBI and law enforcement officials is expected to discuss the Boston Marathon attack, among other topics.

    Danino and other senior Israel Police officers left Israel on Tuesday for 10 days of meetings in New York and Washington, according to the Israeli daily Maariv. The visit had been scheduled several weeks ago.

    The officials will look at strengthening cooperation between Israeli police and police departments throughout the United States. The meetings with the FBI were to discuss cooperation in fighting terrorism and now reportedly will discuss Monday’s attack in Boston.

    Brian: Absurdly the United States is going to strengthen the cooperation between its police departments throughout the nation with Israeli police departments. Note to police officers throughout the United States ISRAEL DID 911.

    Possibly those carrying out the script make “mistakes” purposely to send out a doubt alarm. What would Paul Revere do in these days?

  14. CoJonesGrandes  April 17, 2013 at 4:51 pm

    You would have thought those dummies could have come up with a different script for their false flags by now. They are truly insulting our intelligence. All that money at their disposal and all the resources they command and this is the best they can come up with? For crying out loud, can’t they even use real blood? And as for those photos of the guy who lost his legs being wheeled away, there wasn’t even a trail of blood left behind the wheelchair. They should sack whoever wrote their lousy script for the Boston bombing

    • mommyplayer  April 18, 2013 at 12:46 am

      That guy with the bloodless amputation smiling as he is wheeled down the street, I know realize could have been a setup to get truthers to say “no one died” They even have 3 of his pictures from before the marathon so we can match the face and see the lie easily, how convenient. And in fact alot of You Tube channels did fall for it if that was the plan. Then they look like heartless crazies. One believable guy on you tube said his father amputated 2 legs that day in Boston and his channel looked legitimate. I wonder what they told the veteren to get him to do it. Maybe he thought he was part of the drill. I hope he doesnt feel used.
