Is there a connection between the Texas Church Shooting and Operation Gladio? This discussion goes down that rabbit hole to look for clues…
Kevin Barrett interviewed on Richie Allen
Here’s a deep dive down the rabbit hole of politics, geo-politics, religion, and tying it all back in to Operation Gladio and the most recent Texas Church Shooting.
Kevin Barrett says “Gladio never ended. The Texas Church Shooting has all the hallmarks of it”.
What exactly is Operation Gladio? In a nutshell, it’s false flag terrorism for an intended purpose that has it’s roots in Italy.
Here’s a grain of salt definition (i.e. heavily censored) just to prime anybody who doesn’t know the basics in order to follow interview Richie and Kevin’s discussion on the matter:
Operation Gladio is the codename for a clandestine North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) “stay-behind” operation in Italy during the Cold War. Its purpose was to prepare for, and implement, armed resistance in the event of a Warsaw Pact invasion and conquest. The name Gladio is the Italian form of gladius, a type of Roman short sword. Although Gladio specifically refers to the Italian branch of the NATO stay-behind organizations, “Operation Gladio” is used as an informal name for all of them. Stay-behind operations were prepared in many NATO member countries, and some neutral countries.
The role of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in Gladio and the extent of its activities during the Cold War era, and any relationship to terrorist attacks perpetrated in Italy during the “Years of Lead” (late 1960s to early 1980s) are the subject of debate. Switzerland and Belgium have had parliamentary inquiries into the matter.
The State Department stated that the accusations of US-sponsored “false flag” operations are rehashed former Soviet disinformation based on documents that the Soviets forged; specifically the Westmoreland Field Manual, whose forged nature was confirmed by former KGB operatives, following the end of the Cold War. The alleged Soviet-authored forgery, disseminated in the 1970s, explicitly formulated the need for a “strategy of tension” involving violent attacks blamed on radical left-wing groups in order to convince allied governments of the need for counter-action. It also rejected a Communist Greek journalist’s allegations made in December 2005.
Here’s a couple (of many) books written on Operation Gladio:
