Operation Gladio – BBC documentary from 1992

“…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.…”

Would the Beeb have the will to make such a thing now? Would they be allowed to do so in our new age of post-9/11 freedom and security?

    This may change your life.

    Not everything may be perfectly accurate (the guy in the screen shot is Oswald LeWinter, a disinformation specialist who turns up in, I kid you not, the Charles Manson case, the October Surprise, the Olof Palme murder and finally became kind of famous with regard to the death of Princess Diana ) but most is. And you really should hear about Aginter Presse and make the acquaintance of Vincenzo Vinciguerra…
