False flag

“One can combine other means of pressure with sanctions. I mentioned that explosion on August 17th. We could step up the pressure. I mean look people, Iranian submarines periodically go down, some day one of them might not come up, who would know why? We can do a variety of things if we wish to increase the pressure... We are in the game of using covert means against the Iranians. We could get nastier.”
Patrick Clawson (September 2012)  [1]

In September 2012, Clawson suggested that the United States consider the use of "crisis initiation" as a way to provoke Iran into war.[2]
