Just a quick note:
Yesterday I wrote about the decidedly Gladio 2.0 feel to the recent attack at Turkey’s Ataturk International Airport. The official story is that the three attackers were “related to ISIS” via Raqqa and that the attackers themselves were from Russia, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan.
“Officials believe the men — identified by another Turkish official and state media as being from Russia, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan — entered Turkey about a month ago from Raqqa, bringing along with them the suicide vests and bombs used in the attack, the source said.”…
“One of the toughest battalions in ISIS is called the Uzbek battalion,” he said. “These were the guys who were essentially on the front lines guarding Falluja, the city they just lost in Iraq.”…
CNN national security analyst Peter Bergen said the revelation of the Istanbul attackers’ nationalities will serve to “open people’s eyes to the fact that there’s a very substantial Russian, former Soviet Union, presence within ISIS, both in terms of the foot soldiers and the leaders.” CNN
The Gladio connections are impossible to miss if you understand what Gladio actually was.
Operation Gladio first came to light in Italy in 1990, after over 40 years of clandestine operations. Members of the project revealed that similar projects existed in most if not all countries of Western Europe. These stay-behind networks were, in essence, super secret armies in at least 14 European countries, which were kept secret from the official governmental structures of the host countries – being controlled by other forces such as the CIA and MI6. They remained mostly dormant but were also involved in anti-communist activities including anti-democratic agitation and false flag terrorism. ” Wiki
Today there is some new relevant information coming out of Russia which might just explain why the attackers have been named as being of Soviet Old School or Russian origin.
“Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree lifting Russia’s restrictions against Turkey.
Putin also instructed the Russian government to take steps aimed at lifting the ban of charter flights between the two countries. He canceled restrictions on the sale of tours to Turkey.
The decree comes into effect from the day of the official public notice, the Kremlin said.
The Russian president instructed the goverment to hold talks with Turkish authorities on bilateral economic ties.” Sputnik International
So let me see if I got this straight:
the CIA was concerned about the release of the new Benghazi report that does include some damning new information regarding what that compound was actually being used for, what the CIA’s director’s drone was doing flying overhead an hour before the attack so the director could watch it unfold and Hillary Clinton’s State Department holding up the rescue mission for 3 hours arguing about what clothes the soldiers should wear.
So the Ataturk attack deflected the national media just long enough to bury that report. “ISIS” has to factor in because the President wants an opened ended authorization for the use of military force from congress to go after “ISIS” anywhere and everywhere for the rest of time.
And of course, Brennen himself warned us of attacks from “ISIS” a week before it all happened. Now he says there will an attack just like Ataturk right here in the US. We had better take the director of
Gladio CIA at his word, huh?
Toss into that mix a billionaire technocrat shipping and trade mogul who is the new prime minister in Turkey who comes out before any investigation is done saying exactly what NATO, the US, Israel and the CIA want him too say, that it’s “ISIS” that is responsible for the attacks, and what you are left with is a rather suspicious looking Gladio event unfolding as many of them did back in the day.
It was Recep Tayyip Erdogan who started the normalization of relations process with Putin. It would appear it was other actors in Turkish government who did the same with Israel.
Perhaps there is someone who doesn’t wish for relationships between Russia and Turkey to normalize. I mean, after all, the entire point of Gladio was too keep European nations from getting too close to the Soviet Union after WWII.
I have too say, the timing of all of this is remarkably suspect. If I had too guess at who was really behind the attack at Ataturk Airport, I would have too say it was ordered by NATO’s Gladio administration and carried out by YPG Kurds in Syria. “ISIS” Kurds, Kurds “ISIS”? Hard too say which is which anymore. And don’t just take my word for it, over at CNN recently, Syrians were were saying they couldn’t tell the difference and couldn’t decide who was worse if they could.
I think the new “blame Russia” slant on the Ataturk attack is quite telling. And what it tells me is this:
