Troofer Sources and Time Shifts

I received this article from rense.com on a truther mailing list I am on:


Pentagon Devising Scenarios For Martial Law In US
By Patrick Martin
WSWS
8-17-7

According to a report published Monday by the Washington Post (8-6-7), the Pentagon has developed its first ever war plans for operations within the continental United States, in which terrorist attacks would be used as the justification for imposing martial law on cities, regions or the entire country.

One of the people on the list wanted to read the original Washington Post article mentioned, and asked for a link to it. The discussion continued until the original poster said that she could not find it. I just about fell out of my chair though when I read her comment:

I think Rense is generally reliable, but could he have goofed here?

Uhh, no, he did not "goof", he lied.

A web search quickly finds the original article on the World Socialist website. Notice the date:

A search for the original WaPo article from that time period quickly turns up:

War Plans Drafted To Counter Terror Attacks in U.S.
Domestic Effort Is Big Shift for Military
By Bradley Graham
Washington Post Staff Writer
Monday, August 8, 2005; A01

COLORADO SPRINGS -- The U.S. military has devised its first-ever war plans for guarding against and responding to terrorist attacks in the United States, envisioning 15 potential crisis scenarios and anticipating several simultaneous strikes around the country, according to officers who drafted the plans.

Now we are used to them rehashing old theories and news articles which have been long debunked, and acting as if they are new, the BBC hijackers still being alive story is the perfect example of that, but now they are so desperate that they are changing the dates to try and make it seem new.
