Saya, Sindoca, P2, Gladio, Imam Abu Omar, Nicola Calipari, alleged US connections to Iraq terror groups

Operation Gladio involved 'the strategy of tension'. The strategy involved getting right-wing terrorists to carry out terrorist attacks in Europe and in Turkey. Operation Gladio was reportedly organised by Nato and the CIA.

Gladio was about keeping the right-wing elite in power. Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra stated, in sworn testimony:

'You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple: to force ... the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security.'

Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti revealed the existence of Gladio in 1991. Parliamentary investigations in Italy, Switzerland and Belgium have given us a little of the truth.

85 people were killed on Aug. 2, 1980 in the bombing of the Bologna train station. According to the Italian Senate, after its investigation in 2000, the bombers were later discovered to be 'men inside Italian state institutions and ... men linked to the structures of United States intelligence.'

The Bologna bomb was part of Gladio's ' strategy of tension' - fomenting fear to keep populations in thrall to 'strong leaders' who will protect the nation from the ever-present terrorist threat.

The strategy of tension was also used by the CIA and its allies outside Europe. During the 1980s, right-wing death squads, trained and supplied by the United States, murdered tens of thousands of people in Central America. Indonesia's gestapo regiments were trained by the Pentagon... Now in Iraq, the Pentagon seems to using terror tactics. Massive terror means that U.S. forces have to remain indefinitely.

Wayne Madsen reports, on 2 July 2005:

1. Genoa police have arrested the two leaders of a neo-Fascist intelligence network in Italy.

2. The group employed police and intelligence agents.

3. The two leaders, Gaetano Saya and Riccardo Sindoca, reportedly have close ties to P-2 and Gladio.

(The P-2 Masonic Lodge, headed by fascist leader Licio Gelli, reportedly maintained close links to former Secretary of State Alexander Haig and his one-time foreign affairs adviser Michael Ledeen.)

4. In 2004, Saya and Sindoca established the Department of Strategic Anti-Terrorism Studies, which reportedly had links to both the Bush administration and Ariel Sharon's Likud government in Israel.

Saya and Sindoca were leaders of the Destra Nazionale - Nuovo MSI (an off shoot of the neo-Fascist MSI party represented in the government of Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi).

5. There is a suspicion by prosecutors that the neo-Fascist intelligence group may have been involved with American covert operators in the kidnaping of Imam Abu Omar (Moustapha Hassan Nasr) from a street in Milan in 2003.

6. "It is believed that the late Deputy SISMI (Italian intelligence) chief Nicola Calipari became aware of information in Iraq that linked the control of terrorists in Iraq and elsewhere to a 'third level' in 'an anti-terrorism country.' Calipari was shot to death by U.S. troops while transporting freed Italian hostage and journalist Giuliana Sgrena to Baghdad International Airport."

"Abu Omar may have become a hot potato for the Americans after Calipari discovered links between the Americans and terrorist groups in Iraq and elsewhere - and a decision was made to conduct a 'rendition' of the imam to Egypt to get him out of circulation. Abu Omar, also said to have been a credible intelligence source, may have also become aware of U.S. connections to terrorist groups."
