A new video has been made on “Operation Gladio” in particular and “stay-behind armies” in general. Stay-behind armies were a NATO development, in which the CIA figured prominently, that arose in all NATO countries in Western Europe as well as neutral countries like Sweden, Finland, and Switzerland. There existence came to light in 1990.

Their purpose was to create violent incidents which would be blamed on Communists and cause the population to seek safety through the protection of the existing authorities. Their secondary purpose was to furnish authorities with a pretext for cracking down on opponents, usually from the left.
Eventually the name for the Italian “Operation Gladio” became the name for all stay-behind armies.
Their modus operandi was to explode bombs in public places, killing civilians in numbers. Wikipedia says that:
“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 SHAPEparamilitary movements. (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
“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 and other similar clandestine operations is the subject of ongoing debate and investigation. Italy, Switzerland and Belgium have had parliamentary inquiries into the matter.”
One can see that the various national governments involved had a history of false-flag operations involving bomb explosions that killed civilians randomly and in large numbers well before 9/11. They had trained personnel, assassins, policies, explosives experience and working relationships that could be adapted to what was to be the largest false-flag operation of recent history.
Given the involvement of police and intelligence services in these operations, it can’t be too much of a stretch of the imagination to see why police are able to move so easily into the use of agents provocateurs at meetings like the G20 summits.
Knowing about Operation Gladio is one more piece of the puzzle in discovering how we could have reached the situation we face today when the national-security state has succeeded in depriving the population of many constitutional rights and the military and police are so deeply involved in activities which seem aimed against the population.
