I contend the United States Govt. has engaged in False Flag Operations to by pass the Constitutional requirement to have the support of the Citizens and Congress to use military actions against non-aggressive Nations and Organizations. This was done in Pearl Harbor, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. They also have used Terrorism to take away our freedoms and liberties for security from false terrorist attacks.

The government didn't use false flag operations in Pearl Harbor, the Japanese bombed it. In Vietnam we were never at war because we never declared war, we were there to assist the South in the fighting against the North and to fight the spread of communism. We also entered the Iraq war thinking that the people in Iraq had nukes. How have we lost any liberty due to terrorist attacks? We still have the freedom of the press, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and things like that. Were is the proof that the government engaged in False Flag operations?
