32. Hate to get semantic
but there is a difference between an inside job, or an intentional plundering, and a 'false flag attack'. To understand what the OP is talking about, I'd like to know what 'flag' was blamed, and what he thinks the 'real flag' was.
A false flag implies that a nation is responsible and that another nation is being blamed instead. A crime can be intentional, inside, and covered up without being a false flag operation. False flag means the attacks used cover of one nation while being agents of another.
The phrase itself, being not correct in this context, smacks of agenda.
