Former Italian President and the man who revealed the existence
of Operation Gladio Francesco Cossiga has gone public on 9/11,
telling Italy's most respected newspaper that the attacks were
run by the CIA and Mossad and that this was common knowledge amongst
global intelligence agencies.
Cossiga was elected President of the Italian Senate in July 1983
before winning a landslide 1985 election to become President of
the country in 1985.
Cossiga gained respect from opposition parties as one of a rare
breed - an honest politician - and led the country for seven years
until April 1992.
Cossiga's tendency to be outspoken upset the Italian political
establishment and he was forced to resign after revealing the
existence of, and his part in setting up, Operation Gladio - a
rogue intelligence network under NATO auspices that carried out
bombings across Europe in the 60's, 70's and 80's.
Gladio's specialty was to carry out what they coined "false
flag operations," terror attacks that were blamed on their
domestic and geopolitical opposition.
Cossiga's revelations contributed to an Italian parliamentary
investigation of Gladio in 2000, during which evidence was unearthed
that the attacks were being overseen by the U.S. intelligence
In March 2001, 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."
"[Bin Laden supposedly confessed]
to the Qaeda September [attack] to the two towers in New York
[claiming to be] the author of the attack of the 11, while all
the [intelligence services] of America and Europe ... now know
well that the disastrous attack has been planned and realized
from the CIA American and the Mossad with the aid of the Zionist
world in order to put under accusation the Arabic Countries and
in order to induce the western powers to take part ... in Iraq
Cossiga first expressed his doubts about 9/11 in 2001, and is
quoted in Webster Tarpley's book as stating that "The mastermind
of the attack must have been a "sophisticated mind, provided
with ample means not only to recruit fanatic kamikazes, but also
highly specialized personnel. I add one thing: it could not be
accomplished without infiltrations in the radar and flight security
Coming from a widely respected former head of state, Cossiga's
assertion that the 9/11 attacks were an inside job and that this
is common knowledge amongst global intelligence agencies is highly
unlikely to be mentioned by any establishment media outlets, because
like the hundreds of other sober ex-government, military, air
force professionals, allied to hundreds more professors and intellectuals
- he can't be sidelined as a crackpot conspiracy theorist.
