False Flag Prospects, 2008 -- Top Three US Target Cities

By Captain Eric H. May

Global Research, February 23, 2008

The easiest way to carry out a false flag attack is by setting up a military 
exercise that simulates the very attack you want to carry out. As I'll detail 
below, this is exactly how government perpetrators in the US and UK handled the 
9/11 and 7/7 "terror" attacks, which were in reality government attacks blamed 
on "terrorists."

Although ill health keeps me from working as hard in the area of false flag 
analysis as I used to, the urging of independent editors and brother 
intelligence officers has prompted me to write this essay. I'll keep it short 
for readers with limited time, but I will include invaluable links for those who
want to delve deeper and understand better.

My aim, as a former military intelligence officer who spent five years with the 
U.S. Army 75th Division conducting military war games, is to convince the 
American people that the "next 9/11" -- constantly promised by officials and the
media -- is likely to be carried out under the guise of future military 
exercises. If the American people are aware of pending exercises and the danger 
they represent, then the exercises cannot "go live" and effect the very terror 
events that they are supposed to be rehearsing against.

Military Exercises

The 9/11, 2001 attacks in the United States and the 7/7, 2005 attacks in the 
United Kingdom both have smoking guns proving that the mass murderers were not 
foreign terrorists but domestic tyrants. Each country's government was 
conducting military exercises that simulated the exact events that were to 

The US 9/11 Commission stumbled across strong evidence of treason by Dick Cheney
when it interviewed Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta, who was present 
in Cheney's famous command bunker as Flight 77 sped toward Washington, DC. 
Cheney was at the center of national military exercises simulating terrorist 
hijackings of US aircraft -- at the very time that those hijackings were 
occurring in real life. On May 23, 2003, Secretary Mineta testified:

"During the time that the airplane was coming in to the Pentagon, there was a 
young man who would come in and say to the Vice President, "The plane is 50 
miles out." "The plane is 30 miles out." And when it got down to "the plane is 
10 miles out," the young man also said to the Vice President, "Do the orders 
still stand?" And the Vice President turned and whipped his neck around and 
said, "Of course the orders still stand. Have you heard anything to the 

9/11 Commission co-chairman Lee Hamilton failed to follow up on the bombshell 
revelation, and quickly switched the topic. Thanks to YouTube, Mineta's 
astounding revelation and Hamilton's amazing reaction are both viewable on a 
three minute clip:


In the case of the 7/7 London railway bombings, there is same-day evidence in a 
BBC interview with former Scotland Yard anti-terrorism agent, Peter Power, who 
was a contract employee working in government exercises:

POWER: "At half past nine this morning we were actually running an exercise for 
a company of over a thousand people in London based on simultaneous bombs going 
off precisely at the railway stations where it happened this morning, so I still
have the hairs on the back of my neck standing up right now."

BBC HOST: "To get this quite straight, you were running an exercise to see how 
you would cope with this and it happened while you were running the exercise?"

POWER: "Precisely."

Mainstream Media

It goes without saying that serious media inquiry would quickly ferret out the 
facts demonstrating high treason in the cases of 9/11 and 7/7. It also goes 
without saying, unfortunately, that the traitors behind the two false flag 
attacks understood this very well, and would not have done what they did without
a green light from a collaborative media.

Three World Trade Center buildings collapsed in New York City on September 11, 
2001: WTC 1 and WTC 2 (the Twin Towers) in the morning, and WTC 7 (the Salomon 
Building) at 5:20 p.m. EST. Given that all three buildings were said to be 
unexpected collapses by all official sources, there is no good reason -- except 
for complicity -- to explain how it is that the BBC reported the collapse of WTC
7 twenty minutes before it happened:


Fox news damned itself by announcing that WTC 7 had collapsed -- even as it 
showed a live shot of downtown New York with WTC 7 still standing. A few seconds
later the building collapsed, understandably confusing the newscasters:


The owner of all three buildings was Larry Silverstein, who had recently doubled
the insurance value of the Twin Towers. Amazingly, "Lucky Larry," later stated 
in a PBS interview that he and the New York Fire Department agreed to a 
controlled demolition of WTC 7. Since skyscrapers are not wired for demolition 
-- unless someone intends to demolish them -- Silverstein's statement is an 
admission that 9/11 was an inside job:


"The Noble Lie"

I believe that on the strength of the five YouTube links above an objective 
investigation would have more than enough evidence to warrant impeachment of 
Bush and Cheney on a charge of high treason, and to summon a grand jury that 
would indict many others on charges of high treason against Larry Silverstein 
and other apparent 9/11 collaborators. I believe that the American people, if 
presented with a single news story containing the five YouTube links above, 
would demand that the case of high treason be carried to its logical conclusion.

Congress, though, won't impeach the president. The mainstream media, for which I
used to write, will not investigate and report the story. The military that was 
used as a tool to mass murder American citizens will not take action against 
traitors in uniform who knew exactly what they were doing on 9/11, or the many 
more uniformed dupes who thought they were conducting military exercises until 
the events of 9/11 occurred. To this day there have been no adverse actions -- 
which would require investigation and evaluation -- against any military person 
involved in what even official apologists call the greatest defense failure in 
American history. All of this shows that the fix is in, and that we are in a 

The high officials, media executives and military officers who are bound by law 
and ethics to serve the American people have become a textbook example of a 
grand conspiracy. To look at it from their point of view, they are historic 
actors who are beyond good and evil, who must stimulate the American people to a
necessary geostrategic adventure by any means necessary. To them, the official 
account of the 9/11 "terror" attacks is what Plato once described as the "noble 
lie," a necessary falsehood told to a childlike public in order to direct it 
maturely. The simple fact is that 9/11 has justified an attempt to seize and 
control the ultimate geostrategic resource: oil. He who controls Middle East oil
controls the world.

Top Three US Target Cities

Last year I published "Next 9/11, Summer 2007?" in response to the same kind of 
requests that have led me to publish this essay as a 2008 update. My 2007 three 
most likely cities for the next 9/11 were Houston, Chicago and Portland. This 
year the same three cities are still most endangered, in light of the fact that 
the US military has designated Texas, Indiana and Oregon as three of its four 
target states in the 2008 version of its Noble Resolve military exercises. 
Granted, Chicago is in Illinois, not Indiana, but Indiana is quite close, and 
has been used to stage forces for terror exercises conducted in Chicago in 
recent years.

It may come as a surprise to people not acquainted with military preparations 
that the same cities remain on the list even though analysts like me have 
publicized them widely. There are considerable difficulties in setting up the 
political, police, military and media players necessary to support a false flag 
attack. While many in the 911 truth movement believes that national military 
forces can simply hit any city at any time, it's not so easy -- thank God. 
Fortunately, this means that those of us who study false flag prospects and 
focus on most likely targets; regrettably, this means that target cities can't 
breathe easy just because they have detected, exposed and preempted a single 
false flag attempt.

Here is a brief target analysis of the top three cities:

Primary Target: Houston. Over the past four years military and police veterans 
like me have been alerting the public to government exercises aiming at the 
nuclear destruction of Houston petro-suburbs. Five times in those four years we 
were able to predict to within a day major petrochemical explosions in those 
petro-suburbs. The odds against this kind of accuracy are astronomical. As the 
center of Big Oil and the Bush Family, Houston remains the most endangered city 
in America. Any patriotic group, like mine, trying to alert its home city to the
dangers of a false flag attack should read my recent article, "The 1/31 Nuke: 
Proof for Ron Paul" about the successful interdiction of a 2006 attempt against 
Texas City:


Secondary Target: Chicago. While Houston is the most endangered city, the most 
endangered building -- the best candidate to be the next World Trade Center -- 
is the Sears Tower. Official sources have pronounced it just that ever since the
original 9/11 attack, when they said it was on the Al Qaeda hit list. Larry 
Silverstein, who bought the Twin Towers two months before 9/11, led a group that
purchased the Sears Tower on 3/11, 2004, the day of the Madrid bombings. Federal
officials have been pointing to Chicago and its Sears Tower as Al Qaeda targets 
since the original 9/11 attacks, and have repeated the threat ever since. In May
2006,, the government scheduled secret 9/11-type exercises in Chicago, while 
Chicago Mayor Daley was docked conveniently away in Israel for his first visit 
there. I sent a widely read communiqué to Illinois Governor Blagojevich as part 
of a successful Internet attempt to shut down the pending false flag attack:


Tertiary Target: Portland. Portland, called "Little Beirut" by Bush cronies 
because of its enmity to Bush 41 and Bush 43, only made my top three list last 
summer, when it was designated as a target for a nuclear attack by successive 
exercises Noble Resolve and TOPOFF. The language in an official press release 
stated the case plainly enough: "Noble Resolve will coordinate with officials in
Oregon to model a nuclear attack on Portland." In the course of researching 
Portland for a series of articles I wrote about the city and its exercises. I 
discovered that Stanford and Harvard had prepared a detailed nuclear fallout map
for it, that national military commanders and state National Guard commanders 
were telling different stories about what the exercises were trying to 
accomplish, and that Portland's The Oregonian newspaper was doing everything it 
could to avoid investigating the frightening anomalies. I wasn't at all 
surprised that the last day of the exercises found the Homeland Security 
director Michael Chertoff in downtown Portland, which was largely closed down by
an "unexpected" bomb threat. For another professional perspective on how great 
the danger was -- and may be again -- I refer the reader to the analysis of my 
colleague, Major William B. Fox (USMC):



"Good morning. At this moment, somewhere in the world, terrorists are planning 
new attacks on our country. Their goal is to bring destruction to our shores 
that will make September the 11th pale by comparison." -- George W. Bush, Feb. 
13, 2008

I can't think of a more important question than the one of where the next 9/11 
will be attempted. Common sense dictates to all of us who understand the truth 
about 9/11 that its perpetrators must strike again. Indeed, every directive, act
and decision of our post-9/11 unitary executive, cowards Congress and Judas 
judiciary has increased the power of the federal government to wage the Global 
War and impose the Homeland State.

Why on earth would those already guilty of high treason, mass murder and war 
crimes fail to follow up on their earlier efforts? They understand quite well 
that the Global War is going badly and the Homeland State is becoming onerous, 
and that only a reapplication of false flag terror will force the American 
people to proceed with our post-9/11 national insanity.

Still, for every one person who republishes or constructively comments on this 
essay, there will be another who employs division, abuse and ridicule against me
or anyone else who asserts the common sense point that false flaggers will 
continue to false flag, just as murderers will continue to murder and robbers 
will continue to rob. It's Newtonian in its simplicity: things continue to drift
the way they are drifting until they are stopped.

We can only stop the deadly drift of America by understanding 9/11 and 
anticipating the next 9/11. Many of the vociferous voices impeding our 
understanding and anticipation are performing a vital service for treason. The 
federal government once used counterintelligence programs (COINTELPRO) against 
the Vietnam era antiwar and civil rights movement, and common sense would 
suggest that they are using it again in the post-9/11 era, this time against the
antiwar and 911 truth movement. The most dangerous voices of all our those from 
false friends who have infiltrated us to confuse us until the traitors who 
carried out 9/11 can repeat their performance.
