Las Vegas Shooting, by Paul Craig Roberts

We don’t know if Las Vegas was some sort of set-up or false flag, and we probably never will. From Paul Craig Roberts at

Dear Readers, I appreciate the confidence that you show in me with your emails asking my opinion about the Las Vegas shooting. Many of you suspect that it is another false flag affair, and you ask me about its purpose.

I don’t know if it was a false flag attack, and if so, by who or for what purpose. I don’t expect to ever know. A story is set in place by officials and media. The only way to ever know is to personally investigate. You would have to go to Las Vegas, examine the scene, ask questions of the hotel, investigate the answers if you get any, find and interview concert attendees who were shot, attend funerals and see bodies of those killed, speak to their families, learn about the weapon allegedly used, experience trying to shoot at targets far below and far away, compare the number of casualties with the recorded time of firing, and so forth. In other words, we would have to do the job that in former times would have been done by the press, but no more.

It is almost like the story is being kept from us. For example, from media reports that the event was just across the street from the hotel, I did not know that “across the street” was a distance of 390 yards (1,170 feet).

As I don’t expect to ever have a confident opinion about what happened, I am not paying much attention to the mass shooting, or should I say alleged shooting. We are lied to and deceived so much that we can never tell when we are told the truth. It is like Dmitry Orlov says:

“Lies beget other lies, and pretty soon unbiased intelligence-gathering, rational analysis and proper mission planning become impossible.”
” … a reputation for telling the truth can only be lost exactly once, and from then on the use of the phrase “US intelligence sources” became synonymous with “a conspiracy of barefaced liars.””
“Whatever message Washington and Western mass media are trying to push, a perfectly valid response is to point out all the times they have lied in the past, and to pose a simple question: When did they stop lying?”

Official explanations of such events as Las Vegas, Sandy Hook, and so forth, always throw up red flags, because the official explanations always studiously ignore contrary eyewitness and other evidence. Also, often there are not even smart phone videos of dead and wounded people. As far as I can tell, the bodies of 573 dead and wounded are absent in the Las Vegas video evidence. Considering the suspicion that such events cause, one would think the authorities would make a special effort to show the dead and wounded. In other cases of mayhem, alleged bodies look like dummies or are covered and could be a pile of anything. The presence of crisis actors on the scene, as in the Boston Marathon Bombing, raise more questions. I remember when it was expected that police and media would investigate all evidence and clear away contradictions. Now all we get is an official story instantly ready and repeated endlessly by officials and media. This itself raises suspicions.

  1. Interesting article from Roberts. Thanks for highlighting it. He raises some interesting points–particularly the distance and height. I’d like to add another–the extreme difficulty of hitting anything using a semi-automatic rifle with a ‘bump stock’ device. The AR type rifle has an effective range between 200 and 300 yds, yet as Roberts points out, Las Vegas was at a range of 390 yds and 32 or so stories in height. I seriously doubt hitting 570 (?) people from that distance and height with that type of rifle using a ‘bump stock’.

    Ah well, I’m also one of those 3,000 signers of the A&E for 9/11Truth and I don’t ever expect to hear anyone admit the truth.


    • Zehphamy,
      If you ever wanted to put together an article on your and the other 3,000 signers’ doubts concerning 9/11 I would post it on SLL.

    There IS a PRECEDENT for what is happening to all those eye-witnesses who saw MULTIPLE SHOOTERS in Las Vegas.
