In addition to actual precedents to the 9/11/01 attack,
there were proposals or plans for attacks that had shared
certain of its elements.
Two examples are
Operation Northwoods and
At first glance,
these two plans appear to be fundamentally different:
whereas Northwoods was admittedly a false-flag operation by
the US military to attack US targets as a pretext for war,
Bojinka was a plan by al Qaeda-like cells to attack
US and international targets for terrorist motives.
These two operations may have much more in common than it appears.
Like other false-flag operations,
might have been hatched by US intelligence agencies
in order to build the myth that an ambitious network of jihadists
was bent on attacking the United States "because they hate us".
This possibility becomes more plausible when one considers the
history of connections between intelligence agencies and
Islamic terrorists groups.
