FTR #53 The Terror Connection (Pt. 2)

Listen now: One Segment

In the late 1960s, 70s and early 80s, Italy experienced “the years of lead”- a series of bombings, kidnappings and assassinations resulting from the “Strategy of Tension.” The Strategy of Tension (intended to destabilize Italy, drive it to the right and – ultimately – restore fascism to that country), appears to have been an outgrowth of “Operation Gladio.” Gladio was the code-name for the Italian element of a NATO program called “Operation Stay Behind.” This program was ostensibly aimed at setting up guerrilla groups to resist the Communists, if they should come to power in Europe. This broadcast illustrates that, in launching the terrorism, the operation appears to have precipitated collaboration between Italian fascist groups and elements of Western intelligence. (Recorded in the fall of 1995.)


One comment for “FTR #53 The Terror Connection (Pt. 2)”

  1. It has been suggested that Gladio was set up by Frank Wisner.

    HIs son Frank G Wisner had secret meetings with Egyptian Islamic JIhad in the US Embassy in Cairo while ambassador there.

    This series of meetings coincided was the early stages of AL Qaeda, which EIJ agents had a role in building and may have really been leading.

    Shortly after the meetings concluded, the Blind Sheikh first arrived in the US and began plotting.
