Operation Gladio

Operation Gladio: the idea was for the security services of the West to kill innocent people and then blame this on others. Gladio was about keeping the right-wing elite in power.

Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra stated, in sworn testimony:

'You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple: to force ... the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security."

Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti revealed the existence of Gladio in 1991. Parliamentary investigations in Italy, Switzerland and Belgium have given us a little of the truth. The book "NATO's Secret Armies: Operation Gladio and Terrorism in Western Europe," by Daniele Ganser documents some of what we know so far.

Run by NATO and Washington, right-wing militias carried out acts of terrorism and electoral subversion states such as Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Turkey and West Germany.

A Pentagon document, Field Manual FM 30-31B, details the methods for launching terrorist attacks.

85 people were killed on Aug. 2, 1980 in the bombing of the Bologna train station. According to the Italian Senate, after its investigation in 2000, the bombers were later discovered to be "men inside Italian state institutions and ... men linked to the structures of United States intelligence."
The Bologna bomb was part of Gladio's "the strategy of tension" - fomenting fear to keep populations in thrall to "strong leaders" who will protect the nation from the ever-present terrorist threat.

The strategy of tension was also used by the CIA and its allies outside Europe. During the 1980s, right-wing death squads, trained and supplied by the United States, murdered tens of thousands of people in Central America. Indonesia's gestapo regiments were trained by the Pentagon...

Now in Iraq, the Pentagon seems to using terror tactics. Massive terror means that U.S. forces have to remain indefinitely.

Of course, the CIA/Military claim it was a sophisticated Soviet forgery

Reading Between the Lines: Gladio Ops Designed to Discredit the Iraqi Resistance

...However, if one reads between the lines, certain troublesome details emerge. For instance, as reported by the New Hampshire Union Leader, ?Rome newspaper La Repubblica quoted the former head of the CIA?s Osama bin Laden unit, Michael Scheuer, as saying the CIA received authorization from Italy?s secret service, SISMI, before the [Nasr kidnap] operation.? Checking out the easily researched background of SISMI we learn the spook organization ?has long been notorious for far right, even neo-fascist, leanings. According to Italian judicial investigators, SISMI was deeply involved in numerous plots against Italy?s democratic government, including the 1980 Bologna train station terrorist bombing that left 85 dead and 200 injured,? Canadian journalist Eric S. Margolis reported last summer. ?Senior SISMI officers were in cahoots with celebrated swindler Roberto Calvi, the neo-fascist P2 Masonic Lodge, other extreme rightist groups trying to destabilize Italy, the Washington neocon operative, Michael Ledeen, and the Iran-Contra conspirators.? In short, SISMI is neck-deep in Gladio operations. As Margolis reports, the American liaison is none other than Michael Ledeen, an ?influential? neocon with direct input into the Bush administration. Margolis continues:

SISMI works hand in glove with US, British and Israeli intelligence. In the 1960?s and 70?s, SISMI reportedly carried out numerous operations for CIA, including bugging the Vatican, the Italian president?s palace, and foreign embassies.
