FTR #98 Update on Vatican Power Politics, the P‑2 Lodge and Licio Gelli

Lis­ten now: Side 1 [1] | Side 2 [2]

This pro­gram updates a long-run­ning inves­ti­ga­tion into events in and around the shad­owy P‑2 Lodge, a Mason­ic lodge which served as a cryp­to-fas­cist gov­ern­ment that secret­ly ran Italy for much of the post- World War II peri­od.

The P‑2 was found­ed by Grand Mas­ter Licio Gel­li, a for­mer Waf­fen SS offi­cer and ardent sup­port­er of Ital­ian Fas­cist dic­ta­tor Mus­soli­ni. Con­vict­ed and/or deeply impli­cat­ed in numer­ous heinous crimes, Gel­li embar­rassed Ital­ian author­i­ties by escap­ing from Italy in May of 1998. The pro­gram cov­ers his escape and recent activ­i­ties.

In addi­tion, the broad­cast dis­cuss­es the mur­der of Alois Ester­mann, the head of the Swiss Guards, who’ve served for cen­turies as the Pope’s body­guards. A mem­ber of an arch-reac­tionary Vat­i­can order known as Opus Dei, Ester­mann shield­ed the John Paul II from fur­ther bul­lets dur­ing the attempt on his life in May of 1981.

The con­clu­sion of the pro­gram details an ongo­ing cov­er-up by var­i­ous intel­li­gence agen­cies of the truth con­cern­ing the attempt on the Pope’s life. In addi­tion to dis­cussing indi­ca­tions that var­i­ous West­ern intel­li­gence agen­cies gen­er­at­ed the now dis­cred­it­ed Bul­gar­i­an the­sis, the pro­gram sets forth infor­ma­tion con­cern­ing con­tin­ued threats to the Pope’s life from the Grey Wolves (a Turk­ish fas­cist orga­ni­za­tion, to which con­vict­ed would-be papal assas­sin Mehmet Ali Agca belonged.) Please note that the afore­men­tioned P‑2 Lodge is con­nect­ed to the attempt on the Pope’s life.
