Is The CIA Behind The Iraqi 'Insurgents'?

excerpts from a report by Frank Morales. May 10, 2005

In 2002, following the trauma of 9-11, Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld predicted there would be more terrorist attacks against the American people and civilization at large. How could he be so sure of that? Perhaps because these attacks would be instigated on his orders. According to Los Angeles Times military analyst William Arkin, Rumsfeld set out to create a secret army to stir the pot of spiraling global violence.

According to a classified document prepared for Rumsfeld by his Defense Science Board, the new organization -- the "Proactive, Preemptive Operations Group (P2OG)" -- would carry out missions designed to "stimulate reactions" among "terrorist groups" -- which, according to the Defense Secretary's logic, would expose them to "counter-attack" by the good guys. In other words, the plan is to execute secret military operations which would result in terrorist attacks on innocent people, including Americans -- essentially, to "combat terrorism" by causing it!

This was the essence of Operation Gladio, a decades-long covert campaign of terrorism and deceit. Directed by Western intelligence services against their own populations, Operation Gladio led to innocent people being killed or maimed in "terrorist" attacks which were then blamed on political opponents. The most notorious such attack was the 1980 bombing of the train station at Bologna, which left 85 dead. Initially blamed on left-wing radicals, the blast was the work of an ultra-right network linked to the Italy's Gladio team; four Italian neo-fascists were eventually convicted of the crime.

The purpose was twofold: to demonize designated enemies and to frighten the public into supporting ever-increasing powers for the national security state. It appears the Pentagon has been implementing Gladio-style operations for quite some time -- possibly including 9-11. A stretch? Maybe not.
