In the second episode of the 1992 BBC Timewatch special on the Gladio network, “The Puppeteers” examines the far-right secret army, operated by the CIA and MI6 through NATO, which killed hundreds of innocent Europeans and attempted to blame the deaths on other left wing groups.
Known as ’stay-behinds’ these armies were given access to military equipment which was supposed to be used for sabotage after a Soviet invasion.
Instead it was used in massacres across mainland Europe as part of a CIA Strategy of Tension.
The third and final part of this documentary comes up tomorrow.
Once seeing these, you’ll reconsider what the terrorist threat today really is, and who is behind it.
