(WASHINGTON DC) - Former Italian President Francesco Cossiga, who died in 2010, the man who revealed the existence of Operation Gladio, told Italy’s oldest and most widely read newspaper in 2007 that the 9-11 terrorist attacks were run by the CIA and Mossad, and that this was common knowledge among global intelligence agencies. In what translates awkwardly into English, Cossiga told the newspaper Corriere della Sera:

    “All the [intelligence services] of America and Europe…know well that the disastrous attack has been planned and realized from the Mossad, with the aid of the Zionist world in order to put under accusation the Arabic countries and in order to induce the western powers to take part … in Iraq [and] Afghanistan.”

Cossiga was elected president of the Italian Senate in July 1983 before winning a landslide election to become president of the country in 1985, and he remained until 1992.

Cossiga’s tendency to be outspoken upset the Italian political establishment, and he was forced to resign after revealing the existence of, and his part in setting up, Operation Gladio. This was a rogue intelligence network under NATO auspices that carried out bombings across Europe in the 1960s, 1970s and ’80s. Gladio’s specialty was to carry out what they termed “false flag” operations—terror attacks that were blamed on their domestic and geopolitical opposition.

In March 2001, Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra stated, in sworn testimony, “You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple: to force … the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security.”

Cossiga first expressed his doubts about 9-11 in 2001, and is quoted by 9-11 researcherWebster Tarpley saying “The mastermind of the attack must have been a sophisticated mind, provided with ample means not only to recruit fanatic kamikazes, but also highly specialized personnel. I add one thing: it could not be accomplished without infiltrations in the radar and flight security personnel.”

Coming from a widely respected former head of state, Cossiga’s assertion that the 9-11 attacks were an inside job and that this is common knowledge among global intelligence agencies is illuminating. It is one more eye-opening confirmation that has not been mentioned by America’s propaganda machine in print or on TV. Nevertheless, because of his experience and status in the world, Cossiga cannot be discounted as a crackpot.

And the best story yet, a 747 crashed into the pentagon and then completely disappeared. Supposedly doing something no jet has done before, melted into thin air.

He was also complicit in Operation Gladio. For those who are not aware:

"After World War II, the UK and the US decided to create "stay-behind" paramilitary organizations, with the official aim of countering a possible Soviet invasion through sabotage and guerrilla warfare behind enemy lines. Arms caches were hidden, escape routes prepared, and loyal members recruited: i.e., mainly hardline anticommunists, including many ex-Nazis or former fascists, whether in Italy or in other European countries. In Germany, for example, Gladio had as a central focus the Gehlen Org — also involved in ODESSA "ratlines" — named after Reinhard Gehlen who would become West Germany's first head of intelligence, while the predominantly Italian P2 Masonic lodge was composed of many members of the neofascist Italian Social Movement (MSI), including Licio Gelli. Its clandestine "cells" were to stay behind (hence the name) in enemy controlled territory and to act as resistance movements, conducting sabotage, guerrilla warfare and assassinations."

And? So he was the President. Does that mean he does not lie? Look at our President, he lies so much you can call him Pinoccio if his nose would grow every time he talks. Show me hard evidence. I only believe if I see it (and don't give me some copy from a home made birth certificate like Obamas)

Editor: Oh that is funny!  This glaring thing stares you in the face, all facts point to it, but you refuse to believe that and yet think the President wasn't born in the US?  Funny part is that I could give two shits where Obama was born, I don't even care at all, but I am smart enough to know your conspiracy theory is for crap.  Just believe what you WANT to believe because that is clearly the record to date isn't it?

How about Micky Mouse? Or maybe Pinoccio? Or maybe the Russians? No wait, the bad Germans did it. What a crack, you're guys come up with so much nonesense, it's pathetic.

Editor: He was a president
