Paris: ISIS Attack, or “False Flag” Operation? by Stephen Lendman (ANALYSIS – Updated Sunday, November 15)


Evidence known so far strongly indicates false flag responsibility for Friday’s Paris attacks. They’re usually identifiable the way fingerprints ID people.

They’re strategically timed, most often for what’s planned to follow. Post-9/11 horrors are well documented. America declared still ongoing war on humanity.

9/11: “False Flag” Op on U.S. Soil

The 9/11 incident provided a treasure trove of giveaways showing what happened was other than the official narrative. The most obvious was how could a handful of terrorists outwit America’s 16 intelligence agencies, including sophisticated NSA eavesdropping on anyone or anything suspicious back then?

No evidence implicated Al Qaeda. Nothing to this day – yet claims persist. Without verifiable hard facts, they’re specious.

The official 9/11 story was beginning-to-end contradictions and Big Lies – still supported by media scoundrels as gospel despite volumes of evidence proving otherwise.

Bin Laden was dying of natural causes in a Pakistan hospital, reported by CBS on 9/10/01. The New York Times and other sources reported his death in December 2001. Obama did not kill Osama. The Big Lie persists.

The mother of all all Big Lies still links so-called Arab terrorists to what happened. Most named on the fated flights were discovered alive and well in their home countries, mainly Saudi Arabia.

Claims about Mohamed Atta’s luggage found at Boston’s Logan Airport containing “decisive evidence” about Al Qaeda’s responsibility were false – including a Saudi passport, an alleged letter saying he planned martyrdom to go to heaven, video instructions on flying Boeing airliners, and other belongings. They were planted to blame Al Qaeda for what happened.

A key unanswered question was why Atta’s alleged luggage wasn’t on the flight he was accused of hijacking and piloting. Travelers don’t leave their belongings behind when boarding flights or disembarking to reach destinations.

No one ever explained why Atta went to Portland, ME from Boston on September 10, necessitating an early return the next day to be on Flight 11.

Another passport allegedly belonging to one of the hijackers was mysteriously found near the Twin Towers site, miraculously not burned by ignited jet fuel.

While the events of 9/11 were unfolding, Secret Service agents let George Bush remain at a Sarasota, FL school for 30 minutes after learning about the second twin tower strike. Standard procedure calls for securing his safety immediately in case of potential danger.

Architects, structural engineers and other knowledgeable professionals know it’s scientifically impossible for jet fuel to heat high enough to melt or cause rigid steel columns to crumble.

Controlled demolitions destroyed both towers. Building 7 fell the same way. A likely cruise missile, not an aircraft, struck the Pentagon. No bodies or aircraft parts were found at the site.

Numerous other Big Lies and contradictions completely destroyed the official 9/11 narrative.

Paris: Another “False Flag”?

Will Friday’s Paris attack unravel the same way? Odds strongly suggest it.

Important clues already exist. Again most important: How could a few terrorists outwit French intelligence? The attacks were a carefully orchestrated, well planned military operation requiring some degree of sophistication. Weeks of planning likely preceded it.

Operatives were armed with automatic weapons and explosive belts. How could they have entered attack sites unnoticed? How was this possible – dressed in black heavily armed?

They were well known to French security agencies, likely kept under surveillance. Why was nothing done to prevent the attacks or intervene straightaway once they began?

Syrian and Egyptian passports were found at the Stade de France stadium, one of the attack sites, begging the obvious question: Why would operatives carry IDs? Clearly they were planted – the Mohamed Atta scheme redux.

French authorities claim three terrorist teams carried out the well-coordinated attacks. Do they know more than they’re telling?

Le Monde reported one team fled Paris by car with a Belgium license plate. Paris police chief Micheal Cadot said all attackers were killed.

French President Francois Hollande straightaway blamed ISIS despite no evidence indicating its involvement. His behavior was an automatic red flag.

A so-called ISIS statement claiming responsibility remains unverified, yet it made headlines, likely getting most people to believe it. Anyone can call themselves ISIS and claim responsibility. The statement remains meaningless.

The incident preceded multi-nation November 14 talks in Vienna on Syria and the November 15-16 G-20 meeting. Washington and key NATO allies likely want so-called war on terror escalated, not resolved.

Resolution defeats America’s imperial agenda. Israel is suspect. Netanyahu wants justification to keep reigning terror on a defenseless Palestinian population.

France and other European countries need justification to close their borders to the human refugee flood caused by US-led imperial wars. They now have it.

Hollande’s low 12% approval rating needed something to boost it. Following the January Charlie Hebdo/kosher market attacks, his popularity increased by 21%.

On 9/10/01, George Bush’s approval rating hovered around 50%. A day later, it shot up to 90%. Expect Hollande to get a similar boost, especially after vowing “pitiless war” on ISIS.

The world community now rallies around France the way it did for America post-9/11. Landmark structures were lit in the French blue, white and red tricolors.

The 408-foot One World Trade Center spire, built on the 9/11 attack site, was illuminated Friday night. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio called it “a very painful night.”

“(O)ur hearts and our prayers are with the people of Paris. (Y)ou know, we know all about this feeling because of what we experienced on 9/11.” De Blasio stopped short of explaining state-sponsored terrorism behind the fateful attacks.

Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro’s Christ the Redeemer statue was lit in France’s tricolors. So was London’s Wembley Stadium, New Zealand’s Memorial Museum and Sky Tower, Sydney, Australia’s Opera House, Malaysia’s Kuala Lumpur Tower, San Francisco’s City Hall, Washington, DC’s Verizon Center, and numerous other sites.

Paris, called “The City of Light,” went dark. Its signature Eiffel Tower turned off its lights. So did New York’s Empire State Building, as well as Chicago’s Sears Tower and John Hancock Center.

The world community clearly supports whatever response France intends – complicit with Washington, Britain, likely Israel and other rogue allies.

Expect the worst ahead, including greater police state erosion of fundamental freedoms, endless wars of aggression, likely escalating, perhaps new ones initiated, more mass slaughter and destruction, greater numbers of refugees desperate to find safe havens – now likely shunned by Europe.

There was nothing ordinary about Friday’s Paris attacks. False flags are planned for a reason. Expect nothing good following what happened.


It’s too soon to know for sure. Given French complicity with ongoing US state terror throughout the Middle East, North Africa and elsewhere, odds strongly favor the latter.

Multiple likely well-planned Friday night attacks in Paris had a disturbing aroma to them – including France’s knee-jerk police state reaction. More on this below. Here’s what happened.

At least seven apparently well-coordinated attacks occurred, gunmen with automatic weapons and suicide belts killing over 150 victims. Many others were injured. Stade de France stadium was struck during a football (soccer) match between France and Germany.

So was the Bataclan theater during a concert, restaurants full of patrons, a cinema, and pedestrians on Bichat Street, the Avenue de la Republique and Boulevard Beaumarchais.

Reports indicated other Paris locations were attacked, including the Forum des Halles shopping area attracting an estimated 150,000 daily visitors.

The predictable aftermath so far includes French President Francois Hollande declaring a state of emergency – effectively suspending constitutional rights under martial law.

“Two decisions will be taken,” Hollande announced. “The state of emergency will be decreed, which means several places will be closed off, and traffic will be limited in certain areas.”

“The state of emergency will apply across the country. The second decision I have taken is to close the borders, so that the people who have committed these crimes can be apprehended.”

“We know where this attack came from. We must show compassion and solidarity, but we must also show we are united. There is much to fear, but we must face these fears as a nation that knows how to muster its forces and will confront the terrorists.”

Heavily armed French soldiers were deployed around key Parisian locations. Five metro lines were shut. Orly airport flights were suspended. All city schools and universities were closed.

De facto martial law legitimizes repressive police state powers. Constitutional protections are suspended. Following the April 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, a no-fly zone was ordered over a 3.5 mile radius of the incident.

Swat teams conducted pre-dawn raids throughout the greater area. Residents were terrorized. Helicopters patrolled overhead. Police and FBI operatives were everywhere. Managed news misinformation substituted for accurate reporting.

Post-9/11, Bush claimed unconstitutional “unitary executive” authority to govern extrajudicially in the name of national security.

He declared (phony) war on terror and hot war on Afghanistan. Iraq, Libya, Syria, Donbass and Yemen followed. Police state laws were enacted – still in force. Repressive National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directives were announced.

Hollande cancelled his G-20 summit participation, scheduled for November 15 and 16 in Turkey. It’s unclear if Obama will attend. The world’s leading perpetrator of state terrorism offered France “full support,” duplicitously saying America shares the bonds of “liberte, egalite and fraternite.”

US post-9/11 knee-jerk reaction blamed bin Laden and Al Qaeda for the attack – the mother of all Big Lies, we now know.

ISIS was automatically blamed for the Paris attacks – despite no evidence so far establishing responsibility. Official statements, actions and media hype created an atmosphere of fear, a likely public willingness to sacrifice freedom for so-called security, a rationale for harsh measures to try stemming the human refugee flood caused by US-led imperial wars, and a desire for revenge.

Perhaps the stage is set for escalated Western wars OF terror instead of unity to battle the scourge of ISIS and likeminded groups. Were Friday attacks state-sponsored terrorism – a carefully staged false flag for whatever may follow?

Herman Goering once explained how easy it is to get people to go along with “the bidding of the leaders…All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country,” he said.

Friday Paris attacks were either blowback for Western wars on Islam or a state-sponsored false flag. Odds strongly favor the latter. Sordid Western history of false flags for subsequent planned events suggests it.

On September 20, 2001, George Bush lied to Congress and the public, claiming America was attacked because we are “a beacon of freedom.” The attackers were “evil. This is civilization’s fight.” He suppressed Washington’s direct responsibility for what happened, perhaps complicit with Israel’s Mossad.

The aftermath of 9/11 is clear – endless US-led imperial wars, a phony Global War on Terrorism (GWOT), an assault on fundamental human and civil rights, police state harshness replacing them, an America unfit to live in.

Will France and other European countries become more belligerent and repressive than already in response to Friday’s incident?

Were Washington and perhaps Israel’s dirty hands involved in what happened? Daesh (ISIS/ISIL/IS) is such an easy target to blame. It’s simple getting most people to believe it unquestionably.

The Big Lie repeated often enough works the same way every time. ISIS is the new “Enemy Number One.” Its creation by Washington and use as proxy foot soldiers is suppressed.

Was Friday’s Paris incident prelude to something similar planned for New York, Washington, and/or other US cities?

Unsurprisingly, Western media ignored what has all the earmarks of a well-planned false flag – Washington perhaps complicit with France.

Maybe Israel was involved to justify its reign of terror on Palestine. The usual suspects were blamed (ISIS terrorists, of course) before the dust settled – the clearest indication of a Big Lie.

A joint FBI/Department of Homeland Security statement said “(w)e will not hesitate to adjust our security posture, as appropriate, to protect the American people.” Expect harsher police repression ahead.

The New York Times headlined “Hollande Blames ISIS for ‘Act of War’ on Paris.” It cited “(n)ews agencies quot(ing) (Paris police chief) Michel Cadot saying “all the assailants involved in shootings and bombings were believed to be dead.” Dead men tell no tales!

Other Times articles and commentaries hyped terrorism in Paris, fingers pointing one way, ignoring the most likely explanation for what happened. Other Western media reported the same way.

Washington Post: “French president calls Paris attacks ‘act of war’ by Islamic State.”

“It is horror,” he said, declaring a nationwide state of emergency, ask(ing) for military reinforcements,” and closing France’s borders, blocking entry for refugees fleeing war zones – ones France bears responsibility for with America and other rogue partners.

“We are going to lead a war which will be pitiless,” Hollande blustered.

Wall Street Journal: “Hollande Blames ISIS for Paris Attacks.”

The latest from Reuters headlined “Islamic State claims responsibility.” It cited an unverified “official statement” saying “its fighters strapped with suicide bombing belts and carrying machine guns carried out the attacks in various locations in the heart of the capital which were carefully studied” – without further elaboration.

AP News headlined “France Blames IS for Paris Terror Strikes, Vows to Hit Back.”

France’s Le Figaro headlined “War in the heart of Paris” – on a black background with images of victims on stretchers.

Le Monde headlined “Francois Hollande: ‘An act of war’ committed by ‘armed terrorist(s).’ “

London’s Guardian hyped Hollande claiming what happened was an “act of war.”

BBC: “Paris attacks were ‘act of war by IS.’

London’s Guardian hyped Hollande’s “act of war” bluster. Prime Minister David Cameron will “chair an emergency meeting of government ministers and security officials to discuss the British response.”

An unnamed police official was cited, suggesting Britain will elevate the threat of homeland terrorism to the highest level.

Chicago Tribune editors called what happened “terrorist attacks carried out against innocent civilians in France by forces of evil. Again,” referring to last January’s Charlie Hebdo and kosher supermarket incidents – duplicitously adding:

“(T)his attack on France was another attack on the West, on America, on the ideals of liberty, democracy and decency that bind us together.”

America, France and rogue Western partners deplore high-minded principles they claim to support. Endless wars of aggression and likely false flags like Friday’s incident highlight their real agenda.

Obama reacted as expected, ignoring his high crimes against peace in numerous US-instigated war theaters, guilty of horrific state terrorism – hyping “an attack on all humanity and the universal values that we share…The American people draw strength from the French people’s commitment to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness.”

“We are reminded in this time of tragedy that the bonds of liberte and egalite and fraternite are not only values that the French people care so deeply about, but they are values that we share.”

While murdering, brutalizing, mass imprisoning and torturing Palestinians daily, Netanyahu blustered similar hype, saying Israel stands “shoulder-to-shoulder” with France in the “war against terrorism.”

He sent “condolences on behalf of the Israeli people to the families of the victims” while collectively punishing an entire Palestinian population viciously – waging war without mercy against defenseless civilians.

A separate article called what happened Friday a likely well-planned false flag. Automatically blaming it on ISIS before the dust settled is the clearest indication so far.

Ignore headlined hype. What follows matters most – likely greater US-led war OF terror than already ongoing, perhaps including loss of remaining freedoms.

Does full-blown tyranny loom in the name of defending national security? Expect nothing positive in the aftermath of Friday’s attacks.
