Operation Gladio

"Deception is a state of mind and the mind of the State" - James Jesus Angleton, Head of CIA Counter Intelligence 1954-1974

Originally aired on BBC2 in 1992, 'Operation Gladio' reveals 'Gladio', the secret state-sponsored terror network operating in Europe.
Director Allan Frankovich:
This BBC series is about a far-right secret army, operated by the CIA and MI6 through NATO, which killed hundreds of innocent Europeans and attempted to blame the deaths on Baader Meinhof, Red Brigades and other left wing groups. Known as 'stay-behinds' these armies were given access to military equipment which was supposed to be used for sabotage after a Soviet invasion. Instead it was used in massacres across mainland Europe as part of a CIA Strategy of Tension. Gladio killing sprees in Belgium and Italy were carried out for the purpose of frightening the national political classes into adopting U.S. policies.

Italian Prime minister Giulio Andreotti (DC) publicly recognized it on October 24, 1990, though naturally spinning a very soft-focus version of its nature, and spoke of a "structure of information, response and safeguard", with arms caches and reserve officers.
Actions carried out by Gladio in particular included the 1969 Piazza Fontana bombing, the 1972 Peteano attack by Vincenzo Vinciguerra and the 1980 Bologna train massacre.
State-sponsored terrorism, the simple purpose being to carry out terrorist attacks, blame them broadly on the forces you wish to attack, and also carry out the consequential strict internal measures/states of emergency necessary to protect the public from the dreadful people carrying out these attacks. The state attacks its citizens, therefore give the state more power to protect its citizens. Very simple and effective as shown in more recent examples of the same methods.

Needless to say, not made by the recent BBC Conspiracy Files team. More information on Gladio here.

The global "conspiracy" of the shadowy elite is far more sinister and advanced than most people can even imagine.

The recent coverage of Harry's activity in Afganistan, policing for the British Military, is another effort by the powers-that-be to shore up support in Britain for their illegal/immoral evil war/occupation in Afganistan, and to create further tensions between the west and east/British and muslims.

when mentioning the BBC you could have also highlighted Operation Mockingbird, another CIA/MI6 operation, run since the 50's to control the entire mainstream and alternative media systems, which suceeded. You still have a link to Alex Jones website, which isn't a bad thing, some good information their, but Jones is certainly not a true patriot and is "controlled-opposition", a diversionist who steers "truthseekers" away from the Vaticans heirarchy, a product of Operation Mockingbird to control the "alternative news". One of the directors of the board that air Jones show was ordained a Jesuit Priest in 1966!!!
