Dutch deep state operative and Prime-Minister. Close ties to the SDS as Minister of State.
Ruud F. M. Lubbers was a Dutch politician and deep state operative. After Dries van Agt was removed in the 1981 Dutch Cabinet crisis, Lubbers merging polarized evangelical Dutch political parties and was elected leader of the leading CDA party, becoming Dutch Prime Minister from 1982 to 1994. Named in Time magazine as Ruud Shock, a Dutch equivalent of Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan Lubbers ushered in a lot of American-styled neoliberal policies. In retirement he was appointed Dutch Minister of State signalling approval by the Supranational Deep State.
Lubbers is perhaps one of the earliest Dutch PMs to have terms named after in official Dutch dictionaries. His two words "Lubberiaans" (meaning vague and cumbersome language often with neologisms or political terms), and "belubberen" (meaning misleading listeners with woolly language) are great examples for his tendency to eliminate enforced limits on privatization, austerity, social security and the power of union leaders with almost non-translatable forms of neologisms, which perhaps summarized his presidency.
It appears to be an outstanding form of deception as newspaper Time reported "Margaret Thatcher stopped by The Hague in 1982 to call on her Dutch counterpart, Ruud Lubbers. As conversation turned to their mutual attempts to impose austerity, the Dutch Christian Democratic leader outlined his bold program of budgetary cutbacks. Thatcher reacted with feigned dismay. "Mr. Lubbers, are you really intending to cut the salaries of your public employees by more than 3%?" she demanded. "That's a disaster. I am supposed to be the toughest in Europe. You are going to ruin my reputation as the Iron Lady."
A theory regarding this crisis was that Van Agt was removed by the Dutch Deep state that backed Den Uyl - who's defence minister Henk Vredeling played a vital early role in stashing and secretly transporting munition without (official) knowledge of the Dutch government daily for the Yom Kippur War at the HQ of the Dutch Air Force and Dutch Army during his first term as PM - Den Uyl had a picture in his bedroom and was a close friend of Israeli PM Golda Meir who was PM from 1973 until 1977 and was a supporter of Israel.
Van Agt was deemed "too risky" for the geopolitical influence the Dutch wanted to have as part of the "incrowd". Van Agt's is most known for his outspoken or sometimes explosive character; he remarked in the 1970s that the last remaining known Dutch convicted Nazis in prison should be released because he did not consciously experienced the war and "was arian", he relocated the Dutch embassy to Tel Aviv and told Dutch media in 1982 that "Israel must not think that with provocations and attacks it will reach peace (...) as with gun-violence, unilateral acts and breaking international law and not complying with decisions made by the international community, such as those that have been enacted by the UN" and actively supported sending and keeping UN-troops in Lebanon during the 1982 Lebanon War. Van Agt became a staunch supporter of Palestine and hard critic of Israel and remained it well into the 2020s. Meanwhile Joop den Uyl spoke on the Jerusalem Conference on International Terrorism as the speaker for the "Dutch response" to "terrorism".
The Dutch government accepted a request from the NATO and Germany to place 22 B28 nuclear bombs at Volkel Air Base. These bombs and an US Air Force squadron was placed there with the task to fly to Cuba if the Cuban Missile Crisis would get out of hand. the Dutch would not acknowledge this until 2013, when Lubbers revealed it himself. NATO did not acknowledge this not until 2019. He claimed to be "surprised that those weird things were still placed there" and added "I think they are an absolutely pointless part of a tradition in military thinking" . RTL revealed Lubbers asked the chairman of the Dutch Committee for the Intelligence and Security Services and the leading public prosecutor to avoid being prosecuted for his confession, perhaps showing these locations are still a viable option for future wars. 
Abdul Qadeer Khan
Abdul Qadeer Khan received a doctorate in metallurgical engineering from Leuven University in 1972 and joined the Physics Dynamics Research Laboratory in Amsterdam, a subcontractor of URENCO in Almelo, Netherlands, where he worked on gas centrifuge uranium enrichment technology. In 1974, Dr Khan returned to Pakistan taking drawings of the top-secret centrifuges operated by URENCO with him and, in 1976, established the Khan Research Laboratories (KRL), an advanced highly enriched uranium (HEU) facility near Islamabad, to develop a Pakistani nuclear bomb.
- “For example, CIA has been a crucial player in the global campaign against nuclear proliferation. We’ve helped unravel the nuclear smuggling network used by A Q Khan.”
However, Lubbers, revealed in August 2006 that the Dutch authorities came close to arresting Khan twice — first in 1975 and later in 1986 — but the CIA requested that they let him act freely. Dutch intelligence had suspicions that Khan was stealing nuclear secrets in the Netherlands and Lubbers suspected that Washington D.C allowed Khan’s activities because Pakistan was a key ally in the fight against the Soviet Union.
At the time, the US government funded and armed mujahideen such Osama bin Laden. They were trained by Pakistani intelligence to fight Soviet troops in Afghanistan. Anwar Iqbal, Washington correspondent for the Pakistani newspaper Dawn, told “ISN Security Watch” that Lubbers’ assertions were correct:
- “This was part of a long-term foolish strategy. The United States knew Pakistan was developing nuclear weapons but couldn’t care less because it was not going to be used against them. It was a deterrent against India and possibly the Soviets.”
Official admission of Operation Gladio

- Full article: Operation Gladio
Up until the 1990s the Dutch never admitted the existence of Operation Gladio. Several weapon stashes had been found and reported by corporate media, but mayors, prosecutors, and other high-ranking officials pretended that these were isolated incidents. Even when newspaper Elsevier released an article naming several Dutch spooks and "at least two MPs as KGB-agents by our source, a spook himself.." The agent was later revealed to be working for the World League for Freedom and Democracy.
Lubbers admitted the existence in 1990 of a Dutch division of the Gladio-network, although he claimed that the Dutch division was not under direct NATO-Command, but was under he control of the government; the organization reportedly operated under the "single-agent principle" meaning they did not work in groups and therefore could not commit crimes like the Bologna bombing, Peteano bombing and Piazza Fontana bombing; all civilian-employees were fired at this point. A Belgian agent revealed to Amsterdam main newspaper Het Parool that the Belgian and Dutch Gladio networks were in fact actively working together, meeting regularly.
After these revelations the Dutch public did not ask questions about Gladio, as Lubbers left The Hague for an international career after the end of Gladio 1 and the fall of Soviet Russia. Muslim-"terrorism", the war on terror and several conflicts like in Sudan, Yugoslavia and Libya were becoming more popular due to commercial media and increased television coverage of such events by newly viewable commercial TV-stations such as CNN or national-known RTL.
Newspaper de Groene published Dutch historians Wiebes and de Graaff's findings in an extra page depicting Lubbers to have lied about the actual clandestine operations and purposes of the organization at the end of the 90s. Their initial direct allies from the start next to the British were the CIA and the Mossad. It appears a Clandestine Planning Committee planned and organized foreign "counter-intelligence" operations that at times tried to instigate coups d'etat. The Dutch Gladio-division and a predecessor of the MIVD were actually working together in the same building actively aiming to work together with the same methods for policies the SDS were following. At the supposed end of gladio there were 38 known Dutch hidden weapon depots.
The Dutch only... weren't that successful; they had "informants close to Indonesian President Sukarno up until 1964 as he was drifting towards communists" when the CIA attempted a coup in 1965; Two Dutch agents got caught in Moscow and jailed for two years, Surinam dictator Desi Bouterse - who was steering to communism befriending Fidel Castro and the leader of Grenada - discovered right hand and sergeant Roy Horb suddenly got gifted expensive horses which led to his contacts being outed as CIA-operatives, leading to a murderous spree of Bouterse which included Horb. In 2007 Maxime Verhagen, revealed a plan was cancelled to overthrow the dictatorship in 1986. Ruud Lubbers, Maxime Verhagen, Hans van den Broek confessed they and the Americans actually planned to overthrow and arrest Bouterse with a full invasion in 1987 but did not do so out of fear for too many Dutch casualties.
Investigate reporters Brandpunt and de Vries both noted at the end of their segments on "Gladio 1"; "Gladio has never ended", which was backed by several former agents and police-investigators. Brandpunt found a classified file from 1998 which stated "preparations have been made to have to make future Operations and & Intelligence (the name of the two Gladio groups heading the tens of divisions) operations possible. Personnel and materials have been reserved." This would imply Lubbers to have lied. A separate page listed an unregistered company founded in on the 23rd of April 1998 named "Quia Oportet" in both the Dutch MOD and the Dutch Ministry of Dutch Ministry of General Affairs their files in 2002, but the government responded to the program this company and all files regarding it are "state-secret" and will not be released until 2050.
Lubbers was the elected successor by the leading European countries of Secretary General of NATO Willy Claes but lost to Javier Solana in 1995 as the US "mysteriously and nervously" rejected him for his "unclear position and lack of leadership skills". The reasoning was deemed very unsuspected by the European countries and the Dutch government. The euro-countries pressured the Dutch to nominate Hans van den Broek (who was named by diplomats as more likeable by the Americans) instead if the Dutch still wanted the position at NATO, but he was deemed too important for the Dutch national interests in the European Commission.
Lubbers spoke on Do We Have The Institutions To Deal With The Agenda? at the 1991 Bilderberg. Van Agt's forced resignation and Lubbers surge is also the start of an iconic mark: all Dutch Prime Ministers since 1982 have visited the Bilderberg: (Ruud Lubbers (1982-1994), Wim Kok (1994-2002), Jan Peter Balkenende (2002-2010), Mark Rutte (2010-).
He was the main mediator for the third de-missionary Jan Peter Balkenende coalition from 2006 to 2007 and the VVD-CDA coalition of 2010 with support from Geert Wilders, something he came to oppose because of Wilders his opinions, which could also have something to do with his links and support of Israel, some of Wilders his main sponsors.
