The History Files #15: False Flag Events

Lusitania_sunk_8_May_1915_cropSince this episode of The History Files was recorded in May of 2015, exactly 100 years after the sinking of the RMS Lusitania, Gordon thought it might be appropriate to discuss “false flag” events.

It should come as no surprise that the Lusitania incident isn’t the only one. It should also not surprise anybody to discover that political leaders can do some pretty shady things in the name of “the ends justify the means”.
