Subject: WORLD PERSPECTIVES MOST-CENSORED:CIA IN EUROPE ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Written: 7:18 pm Apr 15, 1991 by worldpnews in cdp:worldpnews * CIA LINKS TO RECENTLY EXPOSED EUROPEAN SECRET PARA-MILITARY ORGANIZATIONS, started in the 50's by the US and NATO. In the last 12 months Europe has seen a number of revelations about the workings of state-sponsored secret services. Somehow these went unreported by American media. In August 1990, ex-CIA agent Richard Brenneke alleged on Italian television that the CIA financed the secret P-2 Masonic Lodge as well as the Italian Secret Services in order to foment terrorism and destabilize state institutions in various European countries. Brenneke claimed that as a CIA operative under George Bush he had been in direct contact with the P-2, which had been accused of a host of crimes. One of Brenneke's jobs was to transfer money. A November 1990 discovery of documents written by former Italian President Aldo Moro caused another shakeup. According to the Moro Papers, then-Interior Minister Francisco Cossiga, now Italy' President, was under strong influence of the P-2 Masonic Lodge. Also revealed was the existence throughout Europe of a super-secret paramilitary arm, known as Operation Gladio, organized in 1956 by the American intelligence services. Gladio was initiated as a resistance army in case of a Soviet invasion, but used against Communists and other left- wing forces in the continent. The Italian Communist Party charged that Gladio was involved in the killings of 143 people between 1969-1984. Despite calls for dismantling the covert army, the organizations' coordinators met in October 1990. Other revelations included the fact that Sweden, a supposedly neutral country, has been collecting intelligence for the American CIA and National Security Agency for many years. It was also revealed that the CIA helped Swedish police install microphones in the homes of Kurds, at the time suspected of involvement in the 1986 murder of Swedish Prime Minister Olaf Palme. In France the existence of a special anti-gay police wing was brought to light when it was accused of killing a gay pastor.
