‘Operation Gladio’ reveals Gladio, the secret state-sponsored terror network operating in Europe. This BBC series is about a secret army operated by the CIA and MI6 through NATO, which killed hundreds of innocent Europeans and attempted to blame the deaths on Baader Meinhof, Red Brigades and others.

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. Gladio killing sprees in Belgium and Italy were carried out for the purpose of frightening the national political classes into adopting US policies.
