Three Months After 9/11: U.S. and NATO Worked with Bin Laden and His Number Two in the CIA-Terror Operation Gladio

What is Gladio?

conspiracytheoryWikipedia: “Operation Gladio (ItalianOperazione Gladio) is the codename for a clandestine NATO ”stay-behind” operation in Europe during the Cold War. Its purpose was to continue anti-communist actions in the event of a Soviet invasion and conquest. Although Gladio specifically refers to the Italian branch of the NATO stay-behind organizations, “Operation Gladio” is used as an informal name for all stay-behind organizations, sometimes called “Super NATO”. The name Gladio is the Italian form of gladius, a type of Roman shortsword.

Operating in many NATO and even some neutral countries, Gladio was part of a series of national operations first coordinated by the Clandestine Committee of the Western Union (CCWU), founded in 1948. After the creation of NATO in 1949, the CCWU was integrated into the Clandestine Planning Committee (CPC), founded in 1951 and overseen by SHAPE (Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers, Europe), transferred to Belgium after France’s official withdrawal from NATO’s Military Committee in 1966 – which was not followed by the dissolution of the French stay-behind paramilitary movements.

The role of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in sponsoring Gladio and the extent of its activities during the Cold War era, and its relationship to right-wing terrorist attacks perpetrated in Italy during the “Years of Lead” (late 1960s to early 1980s) and other similar clandestine operations, is the subject of ongoing debate and investigation. Switzerland and Belgium have had parliamentary inquiries into the matter.

On November 22, 1990, the European Parliament passed a resolution condemning Gladio, requesting full investigations – which have yet to be done (?) – and total dismantlement of these paramilitary structures. In 2005, the first academic examination of Gladio was published by Swiss historian Daniele Ganser. Mr. Ganser, as of 2010, is a Senior Researcher at the Center for Security Studies at the Federal Institute of Technology in ZurichSwitzerland. His book, NATO’s Secret Armies: Operation Gladio and Terrorism in Western Europe, is a documented study of how Gladio operated.

British journalist Philip Willan, who, by 2010, was writing for the UK Guardian and Observer newspapers, described in the book, Puppetmasters: The Political Use of Terrorism in Italy, how the US intelligence services used their relationship with the P2 Masonic lodge to prop up Christian Democrat governments, undermining the growing political influence of the Italian Communist Party.”

See also this BBC pivotal documentary in 1992 on Gladio:

I knew personally about Gladio since 1985 when I first saw the big clandestine military  base of Gladio in Bad Tölz, Bavaria and made my personal research. When I was in the 80s several times in Italy, in particular during my study term at the University of Florence, the Italian press was extensively covering the criminal acts of Gladio in destabilizing the precarious political order in this country since WW2. In particular, the involvement of Gladio in the infamous Bologna massacre in August 1980 was in the centre of the investigations. This  heinous terror act was initially attributed to the neo-fascists around P2 masonic lodge (see above), but now it has been established beyond any doubt that this crime was a CIA-Gladio false flag operation (read below).

It is also established beyond any doubt that most of the terror attacks in Western Europe during the Cold War that were attributed to either left or right wing splitter groups were in fact organised and conducted by Gladio. This led in the 70s and 80s to the introduction of draconian anti-terror laws in Germany and many other West European countries that severely limited the civil rights of the people and undermined the social peace.

I remember that when I moved to Heidelberg in February 1978, the old town was under martial law for more than a week and I could barely reach my new house as the German police was allegedly searching for RAF terrorists, until it was revealed later that this was another false flag alarm. Thus the Boston terror act and the subsequent martial law is nothing new under the Orion sky of this toxic planet.

Although many West European parliaments and politicians tried to calm down the anxieties of their voters in the 90s that this organisation has been dismantled, it still exists. The article below proves that  Bin Laden and his number 2 Al Qaeda lieutenant – Ayman al-Zawahiri – worked with the U.S. government for 3 months after 9/11 in a Gladio Operation to coordinate destabilization in the Caucus region and put Russia under pressure. This is a crucial proof that 9/11 was another false flag alarm of the US-dark government. In the meantime it has been proven beyond any doubts that most of the known terror attacks worldwide were planned and executed by Gladio or similar terror organisations of the dark secret services in the West.

This fact also elucidates my response to Charlotte in my latest report. This is how the circle is closed and the CIA/FBI participation in the Boston state terror act is highlighted in the historical perspective.
