This one was sent to me by a friend, Mr. P.T., and I thought it was worth a blog about, for if the information is true, then one may be looking at part of a wider pattern:

Botched 1980 Gaddafi Assassination Kills All Aboard

What is interesting...extremely interesting... in this article is that SISME, the Italian intelligence service, apparently tipped off Qadaffi. That Italy would have maintained close ties to Libya during a time that the rest of the West was, to say the least, hostile to the Libyan dictator is, from one point of view, no great surprise, since Libya was in effect nothing but an Italian African colony in the empire of Benito Mussolini prior to, and during the early years, of World War Two. It was Italian Libya, after all, that was the base of operations for German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel's dangerously threatening exploits with the Deutsche Afrika Korps after Marshal Graziani's failed invasion of Egypt after the Italian entry into the war.

One wonders, however, now that Qadaffi's regime has fallen - let it be noted with the strong insistence of then French President Nicholas Sarkozy - just the extent to which Franco-NATO objectives in Libya conflicted with Italian objectives in Libya, and if, behind the scenes, there is more going on than meets the eye with the EU's "austerity" measures against Italy, and the installation there of a Brussels-friendly technocrat.

But this isn't the pattern that disturbs. The pattern that disturbs is the more-than-coincidental deaths of Italian civilian and military authorities and political figures who had information on the sad event, and who either may have taken steps, or were taking steps, to expose the truth and to provide at least some compensation to the victims' families. Such a bevy of suicides and other convenient "respiratory complications" suggests a covert network in place in Italy to deal with such wayward potential truth-tellers. This would not be the first time such a network was used in Italy, for one need only recall the kidnapping and execution-style murder of Italian prime minister Aldo Moro, or, for that matter, the "exploits" of the Red Brigades.

In my view, the author Richard Cotrell (Gladio: NATO's Dagger at the Heart of Europe: The Pentagon-Nazi-Mafia Terror Axis) has it correct: when the NATO command - very early as it turns out - realized an overland invasion by the Warsaw Pact was an unlikely event, and that its "stay behind" Gladio guerilla warfare units would not be needed, it simply redefined the mission brief of those units to a domestic "anti-terror" role and in effect, this network became a state-sponsored mechanism for false flag acts of terrorism in Europe.

Another dreary possibility looms as well, since, after all, this story now seems to be confirmed from the Libyan state archives under the Qaddafi regime, and that possibility is that the former Libyan dictator, for whatever his manifest character faults, knew something, and had to be eliminated. His dealings with China alone were opening up Africa to the People's Republic in a way that could not help but threaten western interests. His attempts to ground the Libyan monetary system on a sound basis and one free from the interference of Western central banks is also rather well known. But in addition to all this, his precarious dealings with the very Western elites that eventually eliminated him to the demonic cackles of Hillary Clinton suggests that the ultimate reasons were deeper than all these.

See you on the flip side.
