Truth movers should take advantage of Gladio and the stay-behind networks as a confirmed precedent of the US and western governments participating in
ruthless terrorist attacks against their own people in order instill fear, control the population, and frame left-wing political opponents. People who
believe that such things do not or cannot happen should be forcefully made aware of such examples as Operation Gladio.
-The August 2, 1980 bombing of the Bologna train station which killed 85 people, is widely recognized as a Gladio operation. While it was
initially blamed on the communist “Red Brigades,” eventually, right-wing and fascists elements were discoverd to be the culprits. Two Italian
secret service agents and Licio Gelli, the head of the infamous P2 Masonic lodge, were convicted in connection to the bombing.
-“The makings of the bomb… came from an arsenal used by Gladio… according to a parliamentary commission on terrorism… The suggested link
with the Bologna massacre is potentially the most serious of all the accusations levelled against Gladio, and comes just two days after the Italian
Prime Minister, Giulio Andreotti, cleared Gladio’s name in a speech to parliament, saying that the secret army did not drift from its formal Nato
military brief” The Guardian January 16, 1991
-1969: “In Italy, the Piazza Fontana massacre in Milan kills 16 and injures and maims 80 [….] during a trial of rightwing extremists General
Giandelio Maletti, former head of Italian counterintelligence, alleges that the massacre had been carried out by the Italian stay-behind army and
rightwing terrorists on the orders of the US secret service CIA in order to discredit Italian Communists.”
-1985: “In Belgium, a secret army attacks and shoots shoppers in supermarkets randomly in the Brabant county killing 28 and leaving many
wounded. Investigations link the terror to a conspiracy among the Belgian stay-behind SDRA8, the Belgian Gendarmerie SDRA6, the Belgian right-wing
group WNP and the Pentagon secret service DIA.”
-According to Vincenzo Vinciguerra, a far-right terrorist linked to Gladio and currently serving a life-sentence for the car bomb murder of 3
policement, “The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the state to ask for greater
security. This is the political logic that lies behind all the massacres and the bombings which remain unpunished, because the state cannot convict
itself or declare itself responsible for what happened.”
-Vinciguerra also made this statement to The Guardian, “The terrorist line was followed by camouflaged people, people belonging to the security
apparatus, or those linked to the state apparatus through rapport or collaboration. I say that every single outrage that followed from 1969 fitted
into a single, organised matrix… Avanguardia Nazionale, like Ordine Nuovo (the main right-wing terrorist group active during the 1970s), were being
mobilised into the battle as part of an anti-communist strategy originating not with organisations deviant from the institutions of power, but from
within the state itself, and specifically from within the ambit of the state’s relations within the Atlantic Alliance.”
-In 1990, the European Parliament passed a resolution condemning Gladio. The resolution requested full investigations and a total dismantlement
of the paramilitary structures involved—neither of which have come to pass.
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.
The existence of Gladio was confirmed and admitted by the Italian government in 1990, after a judge, Felice Casson, discovered the network in the
course of his investigations into right-wing terrorism. Italian prime minister Giulio Andreotti admitted Gladio’s existence.
So let's more to the case of Yvonne Fletcher.
In 1984, in London, Police Constable Yvonne Fletcher was shot dead outside the Libyan people’s Bureau.
In April 1996, Britain's Channel Four programme Dispatches revealed that Fletcher had been murdered by elements of British and American intelligence.
David Guyatt tells us:
"The purpose of the slaying ... was to 'shape' public opinion and, importantly, pre-empt Parliamentary indignation for the later bombing of Tripoli
by British based US warplanes."
The official inquest concluded that WPC Fletcher was killed by someone firing a 9mm calibre automatic weapon from a lower floor in the Libyan
But this verdict has been disputed by a number of experts, including the British Army's senior ballistics officer Lieutenant Colonel George Styles
and Home Office pathologist Hugh Thomas.
