Ottawa Shooting: False Flag Theories Arise

Scattered about London there were just three other buildings of similar appearance and size. So completely did they dwarf the surrounding architecture that from the roof of Victory Mansions you could see all four of them simultaneously. They were the homes of the four Ministries between which the entire apparatus of government was divided. - 1984, George Orwell

Some found it odd that there were so many cameramen positioned inside when the Canada's National War Memorial in Ottawa erupted with gunfire around 10:00 am on Wednesday.

Some claim this is evidence of a false flag.  It is also odd that the cameramen seem to leave themselves calmly wide open. However, there may be cameramen who cover everything that occurs there. Perhaps they are trained to be calm, expecting such incidents to happen on a regular basis and immune to fear. Or some may have had previous training in intense situations.

A more plausible scenario for a false flag would be that CSIS did an operation akin to that which the FBI was caught at in the United States, where people were encouraged into acts of terrorism to entrap them. However, in this case, perhaps the point was to encourage rather than entrap. The problem with that theory would be that politicians were actually on hand, reportedly.

Other theories are that the participants are all "in on it," being crisis actors, such as are used in simulations that are supposed to be preparations for actual terrorist episodes.

At Sandy Hook, many believed that crisis actors were used to create the illusion of an event that was intended to affect gun control legislation. This video showed a "witness" who appeared to be practicing his part.

One motivation for a false flag offered was the CSIS bill. CSIS is the Canadian Security Intelligence Service. This bill would allow greater latitude in pursuing anti-terrorism measures, including aggressive interrogations of suspect's family members. Papers are already noting this possibility. CSIS is the Canadian version of the FBI.

Another reason for the incident offered by the Guardian was that the gunman, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, had had his passport seized and decided to fight city hall.

The expanding roles of intelligence agencies is also being seen in the SIGINT (signals intelligence) area in Canada. Canada is one member of Five Eyes, a surveillance partnership between the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Australia, and New Zealand, all of whom are upgrading their abilities to spy on their own citizens. The Canadian version of the NSA, CSEC, has almost completed its new headquarters, which will be the most expensive construction in Canadian history. CSEC was recently accused of hacking computers worldwide. This is done as part of LANDMARK, a Canadian program that looks for ORBS (operational relay box) or third-party country computers they can employ as spyware which allows for deniability.
