Why is there an image of Ronald Reagan? This is surely the wrong era? - Robin (talk) 04:03, 3 November 2015 (GMT)

"The CIA's Gladio B carried out 9-11."

What is there by way of documentation for this? If this wasn't in the (plain text only) description, I'd have added a "[Citation Needed]". Such outspoken claims deserve a highly convincing and coherent set of evidence. Robin (talk) 09:35, 7 August 2014 (IST)

I think the whole article is far too explicit in its assignment of a name to a specific CIA operation. The name (concept) was dubbed as such by Sibel Edmonds as an eye-catching way of illustrating how the use of pseudo-gangs (or counter-gangs) has continued beyond the already well-understood original structures known as 'Gladio'. The name (both original and it's 'B' derivative) were never CIA-originated operation names other than of the specifically Italian mafia-like set-up. They are both useful generic descriptions of terrorist attacks carried out by NATO/CIA controlled Pseudo or Counter-gangs but 'Gladio-B' as a name is certainly not CIA originated. --Peter P (talk) 11:23, 7 August 2014 (IST)
Hello, although i have now removed the text I was refering to the CIA's role in Gladio B. Because this is a NATO operation. Mainly led by U.S. intelligence And I was preferring to this excerpt of the text as evidence of this. "Other operatives were also flown, on US Intelligence orders, to Turkey a major base of the operation, to train and prepare to participate in these operations - locations where, Edmonds reported, some of the 9/11 hijackers were being trained." Also this quote from former president of italy who revealed the original operation gladio Franceso Cossiga "all democratic circles in America and of Europe, especially those of the Italian centre-left, now know that the disastrous attack was planned and realized by the American CIA and Mossad with the help of the Zionist world, to place the blame on Arab countries and to persuade the Western powers to intervene in Iraq and Afghanistan".-TruthSeeker611 (talk) 4:58 8 August 2014 (EST)
TS - Don't be put off by my criticism. At least we now have an important article up thanks to you. My point is that Gladio-B should probably not be construed as an official CIA or NATO term. It is better understood as a catch-all for the continuing use of the 'counter-gang' methodology perfected by Frank Kitson during the Mau Mau insurgency against British rule in the 1950's and rolled out throughout Western Europe thereafter. I suggest you incorporate some of your above comment as a reference. --Peter P (talk) 08:33, 9 August 2014 (IST)
