Operation Northwoods

In 1962, as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Lyman Lemnitzer approved the Operation Northwoods, a plan to discredit the Fidel Castro's government and create support for a US invasion of Cuba by staging false flag "terrorism" and developing "a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington". President Kennedy rejected the plan and a few months later Lemnitzer was denied another term as JCS chairman.


In 1963 he became NATO's Supreme Allied Commander Europe. During his term, in 1966, the Bilderberg reorganised NATO such that the NATO Secretary General has always been appointed to a Bilderberg member.
