Operation Northwoods is a declassified proposal, formerly classified top secret by the United States in 1962 to commit a series of False Flag attacks and blame them on Cuba. The goal was to start a war with Cuba, by fooling the American public in to thinking that Cuba had attacked them.
The documents stated:
The desired resultant from the execution of this plan would be to place the United States in the apparent position of suffering defensible grievances from a rash and irresponsible government of Cuba and to develop an international image of a Cuban threat to peace in the Western Hemisphere.
