With the coming threats of a nuclear attack within the United States and a history of domestic terror within the nation, one must ask; Could we have
done this ourselves?'. I believe the answer to that is a very merky and clansdestine truth. We know there exhists the possibility of foreign and
domestic intelligence and clandestine service agencys operating through terror. But to what extent and can we put to face the shadowy names of this
I believe that there exhists a new hybrid campartmentalized group out there that stemmed from Operation Gladio.
Operation Gladio is undisputed historical fact. Gladio was part of a post-World War II program set up by the CIA and NATO supposedly to thwart
future Soviet/communist invasions or influence in Italy and Western Europe. In fact, it became a state-sponsored right-wing terrorist network,
involved in false flag operations and the subversion of democracy.
After the end of the cold war there had been a string of attacks such as the April 5th, 1986 bombing of the disco club in Berlin. Also the August 2,
1980 bombing of the Bologna train station which killed 85 people. Having nearly 15,000 troops under the command of Operation Gladio, they could be
mobilized through the CIA-MI6 should the Italian government 'stray too far' from NATO and UN ideals. All under the guise of soviet and post-fascists
Many members of Operation Gladio were also in a shadowy organization known as P-2; it too was financed by the CIA. P-2 had connections with the
Vatican and the Mafia, and eventually with an international fascist umbrella organization called the World Anti-Communist League.
One of P-2's specialties was the art of provocation. Leftist organizations like the Red Brigades were infiltrated, financed and / or created, and the
resulting acts of terrorism, like the assassination of Italy's premier in 1978 and the bombing of the railway station in Bologna in 1980, were blamed
on the left. The goal of this "strategy of tension" was to convince Italian voters that the left was violent and dangerous-by helping make it
- London 7/7 bombings 'another Gladio style operation?'
Most of these attacks were blamed on dissident groups with Europe such as the 'Red Brigades' which were an italian fascist revolutionary group.
Calling for the end of italian invlovement with NATO, it makes for an easy scapegoat.
After the end of the cold war the CIA, MI6 and other intelligence agencys were involved in 'stay behind' units that would deal with social unrest.
Due in fact to the soviet aggression and the 'spread of communism' to european states. These units under Gladio would provoke fear and panic forcing
the populace to ask for protection from their government. This government in turn would answer to the UN and NATO umbrella governments. All of this
was done through the means of false flag terror.
I believe that after the inception of Gladio and the coming decades, this idea of 'stay behind' units that would deal with formerly cummunism and
now terrorism still exhists. Under what name and function they have is yet to be determined.
When we hear about the new nuclear threat to the United States through domestic terrorism it is easy to see how an operation such as Gladio could
persist and continue to exhist in the post 9/11 world. But when we have been subject ot numerous attacks within the united states such as the Oklahoma
city bombing, it is not so far fetched to look further and ask deeper questions, especially when the legacy of 'Gladio' still lingers.
