One form of "synthetic intelligence" is what is often referred to as a false flag operation, a term that has been batted around without definition since the April 15, 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. One well-crafted definition refers to the use of false flags as the "pre- eminent launching pad for wars, the usual smokescreen for assassinations, the all-purpose generator of moral panics, the stock-in-trade of the gigantic spy establishment.”
Writer Philippe Sands, in his book Lawless World, exposed one prime example how such staged events are designed to garner public support for an unfavored war. Such military and other agency operations can easily be traced back to World War II, though the origin is said to date to 17th century naval warfare.
For our purposes, however, we'll begin with the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) in the United States, which was set up to assist the Allies of Britain and France in the early days of the second "Great War" in Europe which began during Adolph Hitler's German expansion.
Before 1939 the United States government had not officially sponsored any civilian group to gather intelligence for elected officials. The Army had its G-2 branch, and the Navy also had officers for naval intelligence, but civilians had to pay their own staffs out of their own commercial budgets or off-the-books donations to determine whether it was safe to make investments abroad--undoubtedly the reason the OSS became top-heavy with Wall Street lawyers and bankers. That's where the experience was at the time.
The Central Intelligence Agency, which eventually replaced the OSS and all its various incarnations, to this day still has the same purpose as when the scions of Wall Street were running things--getting intelligence back to investors. But, by inserting agents under cover of diplomats, there was the added ability to use the ruse of national security and sovereign immunity to avoid detection. After the National Security Act of 1947 the CIA was even able to engage in covert operations to promote those investors' aims within foreign territory, all paid for by the taxpayer, or from secret black funds set up with stolen treasures. But that's another story covered elsewhere.
Detection of such privately financed operations had occurred in 1934 when General Smedley Darlington Butler had blown the whistle on certain fascist elements which used a network created to pay off President Franklin Roosevelt and substitute a Mussolini-styled oligarchy in his place. According to "The Existing Order" by Linda Minor:
"General Butler was loved and admired by the soldiers he led. He identified with them, and he freely placed the blame for the wars in which he had served throughout his career on the class he felt was responsible for those wars — the bankers and businessmen whose fat he, as a career soldier, had often pulled from the fire."...The writer explains how these businessmen (actually only the heirs of entrepreneurs) had used inherited funds poured into tax-exempt foundations and so-called charitable organizations to fight any form of opposition to Wall Street crony capitalism all over the world. The article continues, saying:
We know the names of at least two of those puppeteers working behind the scenes -- Grayson Mallet-Prevost Murphy, a "Manhattan private-banker," and Robert Sterling Clark, a scion of the Singer Sewing Machine Co. fortune — though their names are virtually unknown today. Research into their family history and business relationships clearly reveals a money trail and path of intrigue later used by the CIA in its covert political work.
Let these facts sink in. Intelligence agencies are really designed for the following purposes:Unless Murphy’s company was a mere cover for intelligence work, it is difficult to understand what MacGuire contributed to the company which paid him to travel throughout Europe, studying the role military groups had played in setting up Fascist governments in Spain, Italy and Vischy France. Murphy’s background, besides heading "protective committees" to foreclose on creditors’ interests in collateral on existing loans, was military intelligence and planning of secret military operations—forerunner to the role of today's CIA. He was part of a super-secret intelligence organization within the military, funded by the American Red Cross and coordinated by Major General Ralph H. Van Deman — General Pershing's senior intelligence officer and Chief of Allied Counterintelligence.
- To assist bankers and investors in gaining foreign intelligence on commercial operations abroad;
- To label as "the enemy" any political group in any country opposed to Wall Street's illegal attempts to seize property or assets desired by their ultimate investors; and
- To shift the funding of the "intelligence" operations from private coffers to the American taxpayers, calling it "national security."
