Was the JFK assassination the result of Operation Northwoods

]According to the (HSCA) the Kennedy assassination has been declared officially a "conspiracy", by the United States House Select Committee that was put in charge of the investigation.

The Assassination of JFK, and the conspiracy verdict.
The assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, and the subsequent murder of prime suspect Lee Harvey Oswald by night club owner Jack Ruby has spurred numerous conspiracy theories.[1][2][3] These include alleged involvement of the CIA, the Mafia, Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro, the KGB, or some combination of these entities. The original FBI investigation and Warren Commission report, as well as an alleged "benign CIA cover-up", have led to the claim that the federal government deliberately covered up crucial information in the aftermath of the assassination.[4][5][6][7] Former Los Angeles District Attorney Vincent Bugliosi estimated that a total of 42 groups, 82 assassins, and 214 people had been accused at one time or another in various conspiracy scenarios.[8]

In 1964, the Warren Commission concluded that Oswald was the only person responsible for assassinating Kennedy.[a] In 1979, the United States House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) concluded that Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy.[9][10][11] The HSCA concluded that a second gunman besides Oswald probably also fired at Kennedy, based on acoustic evidence that was later discredited.[clarification needed][12][13][14][15][16][17] In 1998, the Assassinations Records Review Board unearthed inconsistencies in the prior investigations, and the Board's chief analyst for military records contended that the brain photographs in the Kennedy records were probably not of Kennedy's brain.[18][19]

Now, before one gets carried away, and begins shouting witness intimidation, Witness deaths, Suppression of evidence, Tampering with evidence, Fabrication of evidence, multiple gunmen, all of which may be true, or may not be, we need to establish what might have actually happened, and why.

Now one rational explanation deposits that the reason there was a cover-up was because a person claiming to be Lee Harvey Oswald phoned the Russian Embassy, but the person was infact found to not be Lee Harvey Oswald, and President Johnson concluded that should this information get out to the public, the public may wrongfully assert that this means the Russian leader Nikita Khrushchev, or Cuban leader Fidel Castro, was behind the assassination, which could lead to world war 3, and so decided to cover it up, for this reason


With the information that someone had been impersonating Oswald, President Johnson expressed concern that the public might come to believe that Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev and/or Cuban leader Fidel Castro was implicated in the assassination — a situation that Johnson said might lead to "... a war that [could] kill 40 million Americans in an hour.

Now the mention of Castro, and Johnsons worry that this could implicate Castro, should the truth get out, brought Operation Northwoods to mind, which was a conspiracy that actually turned out to be "true". Operation Northwoods was a plan, proposed by some psychotic far right group in USA, to commit atrocities on US soil against US Citizens, in order to put the blame on Castro, and justify invading Cuba, and removing him from leadership. The proposals were rejected by Kennedy.


Operation Northwoods
Operation Northwoods was a proposed false flag operation against the Cuban government that originated within the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) of the United States government in 1962. The proposals called for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) or other U.S. government operatives to commit acts of terrorism against military targets and give the appearance of terrorism against American citizens[2], blaming them on the Cuban government, and using it to justify a war against Cuba. The possibilities detailed in the document included the possible assassination of Cuban immigrants, sinking boats of Cuban refugees on the high seas[2], hijacking planes to be shot down or given the appearance of being shot down[2], blowing up a U.S. ship, and orchestrating violent terrorism in U.S. cities.[3] The proposals were rejected by President John F. Kennedy.[4][5][6]

Communists led by Fidel Castro had taken power in Cuba in 1959, which aroused the concern of the U.S. military due to the Cold War. The operation proposed creating public support for a war against Cuba by blaming it for terrorist acts that would actually be perpetrated by the U.S. Government.[1][7] To this end, Operation Northwoods proposals recommended hijackings and bombings followed by the introduction of phony evidence that would implicate the Cuban government. It 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.

Several other proposals were included within Operation Northwoods, including real or simulated actions against various U.S. military and civilian targets. The operation recommended developing a "Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington".

The plan was drafted by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, signed by Chairman Lyman Lemnitzer and sent to the Secretary of Defense. Although part of the U.S. government's anti-communist Cuban Project, Operation Northwoods was never officially accepted; it was authorized by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but then rejected by President John F. Kennedy. According to currently released documentation, none of the operations became active under the auspices of the Operation Northwoods proposals.

So what is the possibility that those that were making those proposals, were the ones behind the assassination of Kennedy, in a failed attempt to convince Johnson to invade Cuba and remove Castro?

There is already a very lengthy thread on Kennedy. These comments should be merged with that, as otherwise this is just duplication.
