Questions for Operation Gladio, German Intelligence Amidst Paris Carnage

As I sit typing in the early hours of Saturday morning in the American Midwest, the body count from the devastating series of attacks in Paris on Friday evening is still unsolidified; with 128 confirmed among the dead and countless others injured, this number is unfortunately poised to rise as coverage unfolds over the course of this weekend. It goes without saying that those affected by this tragedy are in my thoughts, and it is with a heavy heart that I turn my investigative acumen towards an event which has brought so much loss of innocent life.

But as the people of France are swept with a sense of profound and unifying nationalism, those watching from across the Atlantic recognize all too well the potential cost of such fervent patriotism; it was little over a decade ago that the bellicose sounds of “Proud to Be an American” echoed across the nation in the wake of false-flag tragedy, striking an eerie contrast to the chorus of La Marseillaise ringing through the streets of Paris last night. A similar narrative, too, surrounds the recent carnage in Paris, as a group of yet-to-be-identified (EDIT: ISIS has taken credit while writing) “Freedom-hating Muslims” have (if the Mainstream Media is to be believed) attacked Paris out of sheer disdain for her values of liberté, égalité, and fraternité. 

The record of history informs us that the response of the American public to the events of 9/11 was to sacrifice the virtues of liberty upon the altar of such “fraternal” attributes as safety and security. As President Francois Hollande has all but declared Martial Law in the nation and sealed her borders in response to this horrific string of terror, I realize now may not be the most convenient time to weigh the value of human autonomy in the face of danger and insecurity – but, as an American living in the post-9/11 Security State, how I wish my country hadn’t so hastily cast aside these values in the face of crisis!

How I wish critical thinking would have been present between stimulus and response within the populace in the days, months, and years following the attack. How I wish for a genuine Fourth Estate to have been present, equipped to inform the public of such infamous discrepancies as World Trade Center 7 and unprecedented insider trading that occurred amidst the chaos of the day.

For America to rewrite her creation of the “Global War on Terror” paradigm is nothing more than wishful thinking – but for Francs, whose country stands on the precipice of a defining moment in history, this possibility still exists. NATO needn’t be dragged into “a war which will be pitiless” without first exercising a mature and skeptical examination of the events surrounding the tragedy in Paris.

Less than 24 hours after these horrific events, it’s certainly too early to draw any substantive conclusions as to what truly occurred in Paris last night, aside from tragic loss of human life; it is, however, the opportune time to pose questions. 

And the events leading up to and surrounding the havoc in Paris assuredly warrant our curiosity.

French, German Intelligence and the Curious Case of the Missing Explosives

In watching live British, Russian, and American coverage surrounding the Paris event, one line of questioning being posed by mainstream media continuously has been that of material support to the attackers. “What kind of organized and equipped network could arm these terrorists? Where did Jihadists from Syria get grenades, AK-pattern rifles and explosives in a country who strictly regulates such weapons?

As police and military scour the streets of Paris looking for Islamofascist bomb-makers, these are important questions – and at least one news source purports to provide insight as to how these terrorists were armed. According to SOFREP, a team of self-described analysts with miitary and Special Ops experience, the bombs used in Paris weren’t limited to haphazardly wired suicide vests, but were in fact military-grade explosives from a French armory heist earlier this year:

“SOFREP sources reported to us weeks ago that the French National Police were meeting with the German BKA federal police and BND federal intelligence service to discuss an imminent pre-planned terrorist attack in Paris.

Industrial targets were already being probed by suspected terrorists in France, and a bomb which failed to detonate was found in one facility. The explosives employed were those stolen in a little-publicized theft from a French military armory months prior. The French and German federal police and intelligence services strongly believed at that time that terrorists were casing soft targets inside Paris and that it was, ‘A matter of when, not if.’

-Jack Murphy, via SOFREP

The above information, if accurate, raises a number of uncomfortable queries. If anything, it exemplifies overt foreknowledge by French and German authorities of an imminent attack on French soil unreported up to now. Seemingly swept under the rug, too, was the attempted bombing of an industrial target which preceded last night’s bloodshed, which I’ve been unable to find further information on.

Hollande’s aspirations for a “unified France” could be thrown into disarray were it to be revealed that the bombs and grenades used to murder countless Francs may have come from a French military installation – an assertion from SOFREP that is verifiable, as The Guardian reported the theft of military equipment from a high-security French armory in July of this year:

Screenshot from 2015-11-14 05:24:40Screenshot from 2015-11-14 05:25:25

Again, if these unnamed French and German police and intelligence officers are to be believed, this verified theft of “grenades and plastic explosives” are intimately connected to not only the attacks in Paris last night, but a previously under/unreported (failed) plot against an unidentified French industrial target. How would rogue Islamofascists sneak their way onto a highly secure French army base amidst unprecedented security in the wake of Charlie Hebdo earlier this year? The Guardian article claims they simply cut a hole in the fence and slipped away in the night unnoticed – possible, but certainly a point worth pressing.

(EDIT: It is now being quietly reported that the firearms and ammunition may have come from a source arrested near the Austrian border by German police.)

Equally as curious is SOFREP’s commentary on the German BKA and BND, who appear indivorcible from French National Police in the weeks leading up to these tragic events. The pedestrian interpretation of this relationship, that German intelligence had acquired actionable intel and worked with the French to mitigate a horrible scenario, is a conclusion that would satisfy most. I’d like it to be true. But the documented history of murky German intelligence officials turning up in high-profile false flag events of the past 20 years force me take pause.

As researchers of the Oklahoma City bombing know, Timothy McVeigh’s time in the white nationalist compound straddling the Arkansas border known as “Elohim City” is of particular Deep Political interest, if only due to the man who served as its “Chief of Security”: Andreas Strassmeir, son of former German chancellor Helmut Kohl’s Chief of Staff and a former lieutenant in the German army with military intelligence training. Despite the FBI and ATF having significant evidence connecting Strassmeir and his Elohim City cult to the planning and preparation of OKC, no charges were ever filed. They rarely are on intelligence assets.

Just ask Strassmeir – or better yet, Wolfgang Bohringer, the high-rolling German national who owned a flight school in none other than Venice, Florida ahead of 9/11. A “close friend” (some would argue handler) of Muhammad Atta, Bohringer’s affiliations were revealed by veteran sleuth Daniel Hopsicker based on the accounts of the now-infamous “pink-haired stripper,” Amanda Keller. What Hopsicker uncovered was at least credible enough to warrant the attention of the FBI, who, upon arresting Bohringer, reported him saying:

“You can’t arrest me. I’m with the CIA.

He remains, of course, a free man to this day.

I’m not trying to imply that the presence of German intelligence alone in advance of the Paris attacks is in itself indicative of foul play; but given the historical precedence for German intelligence involvement in false-flag operations considered in tandem with unsettling allegations of foreknowledge and stolen military explosives, the shadowy underbelly of NATO intelligence agencies cannot be overlooked by independent investigators going forward.

If it Looks Like a Gladio, and it Kills Like a Gladio…

When one’s mind turns towards bombings and terrorism in Western Europe, the word “Gladio” is sure to be on the lips of astute readers. Ravaging the region with a string of false flag bombings throughout the Cold War, the terrorist NATO operatives of Gladio A have long since given way to their 21st Century counterparts: The Islamofascists of Gladio B who, according to FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, encompass “terrorist” groups as varied as Al-Qaeda, Chechen nationalists, and of course, ISIS, the group claiming responsibility for the Paris attacks.

While it’s still too early to trace the specific connections of the Gladio B network to recent events in France, the use of the Strategy of Tension alone on the streets of Paris is disconcerting, to say the least.

“You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the State to ask for greater security.

Vincenzo Viciguerra on the Strategy of Tension

With unified calls for greatly increased security measures from American and French law enforcement alike, the State has been making its case for greater authority from the moment the dust settled in Paris – specifically citing concerns of their inability to track “undesirables” who could serve a security threat. It shudders to make me think that the bloodshed in Paris may have been instigated, in part, to pass the draconian global biometric ID program to be voted on at COP21 in the very city now stricken with grief; if nothing else, it will make for a convenient justification for the synthesis of greater security as called for by the Strategy of Tension.

Keep your eyes on Boiling Frogs Post and the open source investigation of James Corbett for more developments on potential Gladio and NATO intellgience involvement in Paris.

Out of words and energy, I leave you as I’ve left myself, Reader: Full of questions. To the people of France, I leave my sincerest condolences, but more importantly, the powerful words of Congresswoman Barbara Lee spoken on 09/14/01, in hopes that they might be valued today more than they were back then:

Global Banks Carve Up the World Ahead of COP21

As individuals and Nations alike wait in anticipation for COP21 a month from now, described as the United Nations’ “legally binding and universal” update to the ever-deleterious Agenda 21, banksters at the supranational level have shown little hesitation in offering their seemingly sage opinions on how their usurious reserves will be put to use in enacting this “Global Sustainable New Deal.”

From veterans of monetary Technocracy like the IMF and World Bank to the “New Kids on the Trading Bloc” represented by the BRICS and AIIB, monetary institutions around the world are poised to receive their slice of the sustainable pie – at the expense of what little freedom and financial security the individual still retains.

Leading the charge on the Western front is none other than the Bank for International Settlements, the “central bank of central banks” as identified by Georgetown Professor Carroll Quigley in his magnum opus Tragedy and Hope. Echoing the credo of “sustainable developers” at the UN and World Bank, the BIS has seen fit to reinforce the meme that the problem of climate change cannot be tackled without complete digital serfdom in the form of an electronic, biometric global I.D.

Euphemistically entitled the “Identification for Development” (or ID4D) program by the World Bank, it represents their “unique” interpretation of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals; a reading that’s as draconian as it is creative. The UN, World Bank, and BIS are calling for nothing short of a completely pervasive global surveillance grid to be implemented by no later than 2030, all under the auspices of “saving the planet.” ict_id4dconference

Of course, the BIS is also resolute in declaring the World Bank’s “important role” in fighting the phantom foe of climate change – not only in implementing the Technocratic ID4D program, but assembling the cast of private financiers to accompany the torrent of supranational capital:

Some of these “larger private sources of capital” have also positioned themselves in advance of COP21, one example being the marriage of Eastern and Western financial juggernauts in the solar energy market. This was witnessed recently in the merger between China’s solar giant Shunfeng with American-based Suniva – owned in part by the Warburgs (Warburg-Pincus) and Goldman Sachs. These private banking elites and families of antiquity, investing in the petrol-free, carbon-capped future described as a “historic opportunity” by the International Monetary Fund, will doubtlessly be underwriting much of the “green infrastructure” loans called for by COP21.

Screenshot from 2015-08-14 14:02:47

But it’s not just Chinese solar tycoons assembling the capital and infrastructure for humanity’s (Soylent) green future; the recently birthed multilateral giants of the East, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) and BRICS NDB (New Development Bank), are also all aboard the sustainable train to globalized Nirvana. In accordance with the United Nations’ assertion that the BRICS NDB is a “dream coming true” for the financing of UN-mandated sustainable development projects in developing economies, the BRICS saw fit to reinforce this notion at the first official meeting of the BRICS Environment Ministers earlier this year.

Don’t take my word for it, or the UN’s, for that matter – the BRICS are crystal clear in their position on Agenda 21:

We  reaffirm our commitment to implement the Rio Declaration, Agenda 21, the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation (JPOI), and the outcomes of the Rio+20 Conference in our respective countries, and through our cooperation within the framework of BRICS in accordance with the Rio principles, including the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities.

We acknowledge the progress made on the Millennium Development Goals in the preceding two decades and reaffirm our commitment towards accelerated implementation of the unfinished task. In this context, we look forward to the adoption of ambitious, transformative and equitable Post-2015 development agenda with Sustainable Development Goals at its core.”

BRICS Statement from the First Official Meeting of BRICS Environment Ministers in Moscow, April 22nd, 2015

These disconcerting official remarks by the BRICS on Agenda 21 stand in stark contrast with recent prognostications by Vladimir Putin to the contrary; this seeming conflict between actual policy and mere rhetoric, designed to seed cognitive dissonance within the minds of the public, is a clear example of a unique brand of propaganda developed in Russia by one Vladislav Surkov.

The alternative media, not immune to the effects of this “non-linear media warfare,” spread the story of Putin’s seeming “climate skepticism” to the Ends of the Earth without so much as a whisper about the Kremlin’s documented support of Agenda 21 as exemplified by the BRICS Summit in Moscow this April.

Put simply, the BRICS cannot simultaneously be against Agenda 21 and adherents to it.

Not to be overshadowed by the NDB, the “lean, clean, and green” (their words, not mine) AIIB are also happy to play their part in financing the latest iteration of Rio ’92. In addition to their publicly stated desire to work with the World Bank and Anglo-American controlled Asian Development Bank, some think-tanks believe the AIIB will be key in financing Pan-Asian energy infrastructure, chiefly natural gas:

In a recent paper by Grenatec, aptly titled “COP21/AIIB and the New World Order,” it is emphatically stated in no uncertain terms that the answer to  the woes posed in Al Gore’s 2006 “scare-you-shitless docu-drama” for the Far East is none other than elite bankers lining the pockets of multinational gas companies. How convenient. Those in the West needn’t worry about being left out of this Eastern development “Renaissance,” though, as the People’s Bank of China is intent on financing city-to-city Agenda 21-compliant high speed rail projects throughout the (People’s) Republic of California.

While it may be a relatively new phenomenon for Americans to be on the receiving end of the digital Panopticon and usurious infrastructure projects, the high-tech beneficiaries of Western capital in the East have long been acclimated to the world envisioned by COP21. Those living under the riches (and dictatorial autocracy) of nations like China and Singapore have had 3G phones in their pockets since the turn of the Millennium. Tracking (and taxing) of automobile usage via GPS by the State has been around just as long, as have electronic ID.

If this was the Singapore of nearly 15 years ago, it’s doubtless that the implements of COP21 like the ID4D program will be welcomed with open arms:

Looking at the success of projects like the joint Chinese-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City, the East is already making a smooth transition to Eco-Serfdom; this cashless, microchipped, carbon-credited “Wonderland” is, after all, virtually indistinguishable from the society in the video above… from 2002.

Using the centuries old threat of ecological disaster, the central planners of COP21 are resolved in holding the globe hostage; their insistence being that one cannot have the freedoms, conveniences, and benefits provided by technology without binding them by an eco-friendly Surveillance State. The infrastructure for such bewildering “green” snitch technologies, to be financed by the supranational banks of the multipolar World Order, will be solidified at COP21 this December. The Paris conference represents the most realistic opportunity for achieving the foundation of this Technocratic World Order since the failure of Copenhagen in 2009, a setback the elite would rather not see repeated.

Unfortunately, there is little we can do to stop the ink from drying on this Neomalthusian treaty, and increasingly less international impetus to do so.

Now more than ever, Free Humanity must work towards perhaps the only tactic capable of subverting the lamentations of COP21: The development of a counter-economy as vigilant and decentralized as the “Globalized Economy” is rigid and exclusive.

The Sustainable Gladios and the West African Drug Trade

Where in the world do the seemingly disparate ambitions of the “Green Economy,” the international drug trade, State intelligence agencies, and Islamofascists intermingle? In a real Fourth Estate, the front page of the Times or the Post would be viable candidates, but this, unfortunately, is not the world in which we live.

This perplexing blend is relegated to the realm of Deep Politics, the alternative media outlets incredulous enough to cover it, and you, Reader, tenacious enough to consider its implications.

In writing my recent article on the odious debt burden of $22.6 billion to be placed upon the people of Ghana at COP21 this December, any number of motives for this usurious “greening” of the country came to mind; from DeBeers diamond operations to “grey market” Chinese gold mines, from oil and gas transit lines to fertile Cocoa fields, the Gulf of Guinea has much to plunder and many a “geostrategic interest” for would-be Imperialists to exploit.

Among these is the region’s integral (yet often neglected) role in the international drug trade:

Drug Trade

A role in which Ghana and the Gulf of Guinea have been cast for over half a century without so much as a whisper from mainstream American media – likely because the other actors on this stage, the CIA and NATO’s infamous Operation Gladio, would prefer to remain comfortably hidden behind the curtain of “public relations.”

The CIA and Heroin: Picking Up the Post-War Pieces

“Deception is a state of mind and the mind of the State.”

-James Jesus Angleton, Head of CIA Counterintelligence (1954-1974)

During the early reconstruction of Europe following World War II, the fledgling CIA wasted little time in filling the void left by the British “Commonwealth of Nations,” their inheritance of the international heroin trade of chief importance. The men who would make this possible were handed to the late OSS by the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) on a silver platter: A network of Jewish and Italian mob bosses, sprung from jail to assist in the Allied invasion of Europe, who were to be given a second chance at restoring their Prohibition glory days.

This time, however, they wouldn’t be smuggling liquor across State lines, but heroin across international waters. No small feat. If anyone could pull it off, though, it’d be men prepared by a life of covert intelligence operations and black market expertise – and that’s exactly what the CIA had in Meyer Lansky and “Lucky” Luciano.

From 1946 to 1948, Luciano and over 100 of his associates were released from prison and subsequently deported to Italy, with the Justice Department citing “wartime service” as a justification for early release. Comfortably back in Europe with his organization in tact, Luciano worked quickly to ensnare the world opium market. Undeterred by post-war tightening in Italian pharmaceutical regulations, Luciano leveraged his position as an international figure to forge connections with a Lebanese syndicate who would serve as his supply. Of Luciano’s heroin network, Professor Alfred W. McCoy writes:

Morphine base was now the necessary commodity. Thanks to his contacts in the Middle East, Luciano established a long-term business relationship with a Lebanese who was quickly becoming known as the Middle East’s major exporter of morphine base-Sami El Khoury. Through judicious use of bribes and his high social standing in Beirut society, El Khoury established an organization of unparalleled political strength. The directors of Beirut Airport, Lebanese customs, the Lebanese narcotics police, and perhaps most importantly, the chief of the antisubversive section of the Lebanese police, protected the import of raw opium from Turkey’s Anatolian plateau into Lebanon, its processing into morphine base, and its final export to the laboratories in Sicily and Marseille.

Once heroin had been manufactured and packaged for export, Luciano used his Mafia connections to send it through a maze of international routes to the United States. From Europe heroin was shipped directly to New York or smuggled through Canada and Cuba.”

-Alfred W. McCoy, The Politics of Heroin, pg. 22

The profits from this network would pass through the hands of Luciano’s money man, Meyer Lansky, with a significant portion ultimately resting in the coffers of American intelligence agencies.

“After [Luciano] was deported from the United States in 1946, he charged his long-time associate, Meyer Lansky, with the responsibility for managing his financial empire. Lansky also played a key role in organizing Luciano’s heroin syndicate: he supervised smuggling operations, negotiated with Corsican heroin manufacturers, and managed the collection and concealment of the enormous profits.”

-Alfred W. McCoy, The Politics of Heroin, pg. 23

It is by way of the CIA-Luciano-Lansky “maze of international routes” that Ghana originally found itself ensnared in the grip of the Anglo-American Establishment’s heroin trade. While not mentioned in Prof. McCoy’s seminal work on CIA involvement in the heroin market, Ghana was indeed one of the CIA’s original trafficking routes – and remains one to this day.

We know this thanks to a 1952 State Department cable, doubtlessly sent by an enterprising individual who was not “in the know” about ongoing CIA drug operations in the area.

The first documented use of West Africa as a staging post for heroin smuggling dates from 1952, when US officials noted that parcels of the drug were being transported by a Lebanese syndicate from Beirut to New York via Kano and Accra, using couriers on commercial airlines. One of those implicated at the Beirut end of the pipeline was reported to be an Italian intelligence officer; it was not clear whether he was operating with the approval of his superiors. The US consul-general in Lagos was told by a Lebanese source, described as ‘a competent narcotics and diamond smuggler’, that the existing ‘heavy dope traffic’ from the Near East to the USA via Europe was being diverted to Nigeria ‘to an increasing extent’ to avoid the attention of law-enforcement officers on the European route.”

-Prof. Stephen Ellis, West Africa’s International Drug Trade, pg. 174

A Lebanese syndicate? Heroin destined for New York? An Italian intelligence officer? The CIA and the Luciano network hardly attempted to wipe their fingerprints off this one; they simply operated with diplomatic immunity. Things getting too hot in Europe? Ship it through Ghana and Nigeria, the “former” British colonies, where we’ll receive more impunity; it’s “just” the Third World, after all, right?

Two particular nodes of the early CIA heroin trade warrant further investigation: Lebanon and Italy. Like the Iran-Contra scandal, both Italy and Lebanon include not only CIA drug activities, but a corresponding paramilitary element – none other than the NATO operatives from Operation Gladio.

The Seeds of Gladio

Amidst CIA/NATO intelligence chicanery throughout the post-war heroin trade, Western intelligence agencies were also hard at work developing a bulwark against Communism in a most unsavory manner; via the backing of a network of ultranationalists and fascists throughout Europe. Spearheaded by the CIA and MI6, what came to be known as “Operation Gladio” (its working name in Italy) became a “State within a State,” the front lines of a hypothetical World War III against the USSR.

The war never came, but the “Deep State” of Gladio remained in tact and was quickly repurposed for a new task: Flase-flag terror and color revolution. While the Gladio network spanned throughout Western European nations (Austria, Finland, Sweden, Switzerland, among others), its most publicized activities were in Italy, where the Italian justice system attempted to prosecute a number of Gladios throughout the 80s and 90s.

This string of trials gave us a glimpse behind the curtain of Operation Gladio’s covert operations spanning nearly half a century. From staging bombings to be blamed on Communists to a successful coup d’état of a democratically elected Italian government in 1963 code named Operation Piano Solo, the Gladios have had a hand in restricting Italian sovereignty since their inception. Amidst this environment of chaos and political instability, the aim, according to the court testimony of one member of the Gladio team, was to create fear and uncertainty via a tactic known as the Strategy of Tension.

“You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the State to ask for greater security.

Vincenzo Viciguerra on the Strategy of Tension

Not coincidentally, we see this same strategy at play in the 21st Century “Global War on Terror” paradigm: The Hegelian implementation of controlled violence to bring about centralized State authority. The Strategy of Tension lives on, but thanks to the efforts of perceptive and resourceful FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, we can trace the historical continuity of these efforts. According to Edmonds, the Deep State shifted its paramilitary operations from the ultranationalists of the Cold War to a new force for a New World: Islamofascism.

The plan’s name within the Bureau? Gladio B.

The origins of this operational shift from backing false-flagging European fascists to false-flagging Islamofascists has its clearest genesis in the financing of the Mujahideen/Al-Qaeda by the CIA from the 80s onward – but the spirit of the operation existed simultaneously with “Gladio A” in Lebanon, along the CIA’s heroin route, as far back as 1957; courtesy of Frank Wisner, John Foster Dulles, and the Eisenhower administration:

“The president [Eisenhower] said he wanted to promote the idea of an Islamic jihad against godless communism. ‘We should do everything possible to stress the holy war aspect,’ he said at a September 1957 White House meeting attended by Frank Wisner, Foster Dulles, assistant secretary of state for the Near East William Rountree, and members of the Joint Chiefs. Foster Dulles proposed “a secret task force,” under whose auspices the CIA would deliver American guns, money, and intelligence to King Saud of Saudi Arabia, King Hussein of Jordan, President Camille Chamoun of Lebanon, and President Nuri Said of Iraq.

-Tim Weiner, Legacy of Ashes: The History of the CIA, pg. 137

Guns, drugs, and false-flag terror; a Machiavellian trifecta that always seem to present themselves in the same time and place. Does the international drug trade finance the paramilitary element of these programs? Are profits from CIA drug operations used to prop up the US stock market, as late investigative journalist Mike Ruppert proposed? Is opium merely a convenient tool for eugenics and empire, as the British Empire learned over a century ago?

It’s likely that all three of these elements are at play, and the people of Ghana are not immune to their tainting effects.

The Sustainable Gladios and “Plan B” in Ghana

While the days of heroin-smuggling CIA Mafioso are behind us, the boogeyman selected to fill the void – the “Islamic fundamentalists” of Gladio B – have not neglected their position in the Great Game as the Anglo-American Establishment’s chief MENA drug-runners. The accounts of Sibel Edmonds on this topic revolve primarily around the importance of Turkey and Azerbaijan as key refining and trafficking regions for NATO/Al-Qaeda heroin.

Unbeknownst to to this author until recently, however, is evidence suggesting that the Gulf of Guinea is also a hotbed for Gladio B smuggling; not only of Afghan heroin, but African cocaine destined for Western markets as well.

At the heart of this recent upsurge in the region’s drug trade are the Gladio B assets known to the public as Al-Qaeda; with a stranglehold on the country of Mali via the CIA-backed Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), the Gladios have found the neighboring nation of Ghana to be a highly convenient hub for heroin and coke bound for the Western world:

Screenshot from 2015-11-07 15:20:03Screenshot from 2015-11-07 15:21:25

AQIM’s airport of choice? None other than Ghana’s largest international hub, the Kotoka International Airport in Accra – the very same airport which the CIA’s Italian Gladio A network smuggled heroin through over half a century ago.

The historical continuity couldn’t be more obvious.

“Given the use of West Africa by Lebanese smugglers in more recent times, it is an intriguing question whether there has been a highly discreet narcotics pipeline linking Lebanon and West Africa to the consumer markets of North America and Western Europe in continuous operation for more than fifty years. The presence of a murky official element in the person of an Italian intelligence officer is also of interest, as narcotics smuggling the world over seems to have become intertwined with the work of secret intelligence agencies from an early period.

-Prof. Stephen Ellis, West Africa’s International Drug Trade, pg. 174

To Prof. Ellis’ point, over fifty years of NATO drug smuggling in Ghana is not merely an “intriguing question.” It’s a well-documented fact; but a fact that can only be divined when armed with the foreknowledge of the CIA’s twin Operation Gladios, the latter of which, Gladio B, is relegated to the realm of taboo within academia and media alike.

Ghana, drenched in oil, laden with gold, and as demonstrated herein, a key component in the international drug trade, is far too valuable a target not to be further colonized by the First World. This perspective sheds new light on the Neomalthusian “sustainable development” debt load of $22.6bn the U.N. is attempting to place upon Ghana, as this influx of cash won’t simply be allocated towards building a “greener” Panopticon.

It will be used to line the pockets of the corrupt government officials and police who allow the CIA drug trade to continue in Ghana unabated. It will be used to keep the people of Ghana impoverished and powerless against the marauding forces of Globalism. It will be used to enrich the elite as well as the Deep State they helm.

Unlike half a century ago, however, when American intelligence control of global opium markets was young and undocumented, we are now equipped with the retrospection of history; knowledge that, when utilized by enough inquiring minds like your own, Reader, provides hope that the next fifty years might be different than the last.
