NATO's Secret Army: Operation Gladio and Terrorism in Western Europe by Daniele Ganser
Report Abuse/Infringement 1 Seeds 0 Leechers2.78 MB
The CIA and the British secret service MI6, in collaboration with the military alliance NATO and European military secret services set up a network of clandestine anticommunist armies in Western Europe after World War II. The secret soldiers were trained on remote islands in the Mediterranean and in unorthodox warfare centers in England and in the United States by the Green Berets and SAS Special Forces. The network was armed with explosives, machine guns and high-tech communication equipment hidden in underground bunkers and secret arms caches in forests and mountain meadows. In some countries, the secret army linked up with right-wing terrorists who in a secret war engaged in political manipulation, harassment of left wing parties, massacres, coup d'etats and torture.
Codenamed "Gladio" ('the sword'), the Italian secret army was exposed in 1990 by Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti to the Italian Senate, whereupon the press spoke of the "the best kept, and most damaging, political-military secret since World War II" (Observer, 18. November 1990) and observed that "The story seems straight from the pages of a political thriller." (The Times, November 19, 1990). Ever since, so-called 'stay-behind' armies of NATO have also been discovered in France, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxemburg, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, Austria, Greece and Turkey. They were internationally coordinated by the Pentagon and NATO and had their last known meeting in the NATO-linked Allied Clandestine Committee (ACC) in Brussels in October 1990.
Unfortunately, since I'm residing in Turkey and piratbay is banned (by court decission) this torrent is out of my reach. Can't somebody put it on another tracker?

Look here is a rapidshare Link:
This has nothing to do with Alex Jones or any conspiracy theorys.
Gladio existed, in 1990 their cover was blown up an several members where arrested but european politicans blocked further investigations, some attestors where even killed before they could reveal details to the court.

Thanks Xshare, I'm already reading the book.
My cousin who is currently in Berlin because of very bad bandwith in the univercity he is at, via Internet controled his computer at home back in Serbia, so torrent was downloaded there and than was sent to me over Skype. Then I sent him a book by e-mail to Berlin. Sounds complicate but it was not and lasted just 15min. Internet is a miracle!
The book is of special interest to me since stay-behind was never dismantled here and there are lot of murky things they did. This goverment is trying crack down on what is here called a "deep state", but nobody is sure if they'll sucseed.

Jones claims Gladio is "false flag terrorism" designed to enhance the expansion of NATO powers - parallel government. He rants and raves about it (http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/february2005/290205swordplay.htm).
I personally stick to that which is soundly documented. The Iran-Contra scandal is a good example of a conspiracy which is conclusively documented.
Just keep that in mind when you come across information on Op Gladio, that a lot of people point to it as supporting evidence for 9/11 "inside job," and that, as far as I can see, there's no conclusive evidence about, say, CIA involvement.

Yes, Xshare, it's nice source of diff. documents. I like the name of the project "Parallel History"... How appropriate!
Ah, Alex Jones... In my opinion he sometimes raises legitimate (correct) questions, but seldom gives well documented answers. He is entertainer for conspiracy theories lovers.

I have watched some of Alex Jones Movies i think they are more Propaganda for conspiracy theories than carfully reasearched "facts" because all those things have been well known before he starts making his videos.
But he makes this informations availible for an broader audience, so more people get aware of those things and may search for further better informations.
I prefer Scientific and proofed informations so for me the ETH zurich and Daniele Ganser are good sources.

At the end of WW2 there were two superpowers that were left standing, the U.S.A. and U.S.S.R., that could loosely fall into two camps, the capitalists and the communists, respectively. Western policies demanded wartime personnel be put to use within peacetime society. They employed agents throughout the remaining free European nations so as to defeat creeping communism. These initiatives were developed by NATO and later more influence was exerted by CIA operatives on their crusade to discredit so-called leftist views, within Europe, the U.S., and abroad. Here's an interesting web page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strategy_of_tension about the overview on the divide and conquer policy.
