In this "non-fiction corollary to Larsson's Millenium Trilogy," wet works and false flags keep Europe a colony of the US. Leaders are murdered, movements are subverted. Under the surface, the empire rules by death squads, as it always has south of the border. The attack on Libya laid bare the iron fist within the velvet glove of slogans such as "humanitarian intervention." Like the destruction of Yugoslavia and the rape of Afghanistan, the reduction of Libya to a virtual slave colony was performed under the banner of NATO. And what exactly is NATO? Richard Cottrell tells the story of mayhem and murder behind the "alliance for peace," and predicts an emerging military colossus fighting to seize control of strategic resources such as oil, gas, minerals and water anywhere on the planet.
Masquerading as a rear guard against Soviet invaders, NATO's covert forces warped into psychological and physical terrorism. These were the years of lead, in which hundreds perished in a synthetic war in the streets of Europe. NATO commander General Lyman Lemnitzer ordered serial attacks on French president Charles de Gaulle. Sacked from the Pentagon by John F. Kennedy for rank insubordination, then exiled to Europe, Lemnitzer reaped revenge in Dallas.
The secret armies forged bonds with organized crime and neo-fascists. NATO-backed coups struck down governments in Greece and Turkey; the island state of Cyprus was sundered amid bitter genocide. Urban guerrillas like the Red Brigades and the Baader-Meinhof Gang were cunningly manipulated. Italy gained a deep-state government, the ultra-secret P2 pseudo-Masonic lodge, founded by former Blackshirts.
Swedish premier Olof Palme and Italian ex-PM Aldo Moro were assassinated. Pope John Paul II was shot by Turkish gangsters who had regular work as Gladio guns for hire. In 2009, a Gladio copy-cat outfit codenamed Ergenekon came to light in Turkey. The shootings in Norway in July 2011, and in Belgium, France and Italy in 2012, all bore the classic stripe of Gladio false-flag operations.

Richard Cottrell enjoyed a long career in the British print and broadcast media. As a television journalist specialising in politics and economics he contributed regularly to the national ITV network. In 1979 he was elected as a Conservative in the first direct elections to the European Parliament. Over the next ten years he sat on the parliament s important committees and published two books, one a polemical attack on the EU's farming policy (The Sacred Cow) and another (Blood on Their Hands) which extended the inquiry he performed on behalf of the parliament into the murder of British journalist Ann Chapman under the military junta in Greece. His inquiry cleared an innocent man. He wrote the highly praised landmark Cottrell Report into the activities of pseudo religious cults such as the Moonies and their harmful influences on families and society. Richard entered politics as an enthusiastic European but turned agnostic "as a result of experience of the inner workings of a profoundly anti-democratic system."Review:
Richard Cottrell's Gladio is a tour de force. Explosive, topical, and up to the minute, it takes the reader into realms of research usually reserved to those who spend years digging deep into history. Cottrell presents a wealth of insight and factual knowledge that is unmatched. Gladio is a must have for anyone who values the truth. --Madison Ruppert, End the Lie
An exhaustive chronicle of the doings and mis-doings of NATO and its motley clandestine collaborators might be expected to take some swallowing. And not just because the very notion of the thin veneer of democracy masking an endemic and far-reaching woodworm infestation tends to make the average punter queasy and inclined to hold tighter to the more comfortable delusions inherent in the approved narrative.
Even those of us who always suspected there was something nasty in the nursery have been assailed by so much conspiracy theory that we would be forgiven for shrugging resignedly at the prospect of five hundred pages of all is not what it seems spookery.
'Yeah, yeah. Tell me about it.'
But Richard Cottrell is not of the tinfoil hat brigade; nor is he a purveyor of perverse propositions.
He has spent much time in the thick of it in person -- as a member of the European parliament, as a journalist, and even as an appointed rapporteur on one of the ever more compelling cases he instances of dark forces tampering with mass reality.
Such cases stack up to a clearly repeated pattern and an increasingly recognisable M.O. which, taken together, betray the same criminal intents, and frequently the same criminals.
Cottrell's achievement here is monumental, not only in providing an encyclopaedic list of 'deep state' atrocities, false-flag capers and universal corruption, but in whisking us through it at a breathless pace, so that it reads more like a le Carré novel than a charge sheet.
The author weaves his tangled web with wit and authority, not least because he doesn't, himself, practice to deceive. Where the evidence refuses to add up, or isn't all in yet, he won't jump to conclusions merely to support his general thrust.
The meticulous nature of his research is alone enough to engender confidence in the veracity of his naming of names and identification of times, places, sequences and consequences.
In addition, a fine talent for metaphor and simile keeps the reader from flagging as he or she is bustled from continent to continent in company with drug racketeers, mad bombers, freelance anarchists, dodgy bankers with their hands in the Vatican's tills, dictators taking dictation from surprising quarters, 'terrorists' who didn't know the time of day, paedophiles, blackmailers and even the occasional honest person.
If you know there's something going on here, but you don't know what it is, get into Gladio.
The quality of the author's prose and his ability to hold on to the thread through all those events over all those years and all those pages make this a vital cornerstone for a library of inside knowledge. --Dave Randle, The Liberty Beacon
