Was Ukraine a False Flag Operation?
The foreign minister of Etonia – after visiting Ukraine – told the EU foreign affairs chief that the NEW Ukranian government was behind the snipers who bumped off both protesters and Ukranian police. (Update: the Estonian Foreign Ministry confirmed the authenticity of the call; but denied that it pointed blame at the Maidan protesters).
In other words, the Estonian minister is alleging that event which led to the overthrow of the old Ukranian regime was a false flag.
We have no idea if the Estonian minister is right or not.
American analyst and writer William Engdahl goes even further in his allegations. Specifically, Engdahl claims that intelligence sources tell him that NATO is behind the snipers, as part of a “Gladio” campaign of false flag destabilization.
By way of background, the former Italian Prime Minister, an Italian judge, and the former head of Italian counterintelligence admit that NATO, with the help of the Pentagon and CIA, carried out terror bombings in Italy and other European countries in the 1950s and blamed the communists, in order to rally people’s support for their governments in Europe in their fight against communism. The code name for this campaign was “Gladio”.
As one participant in the formerly-secret Gladio program stated: “You had to attack civilians, 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” (and see this)(Italy and other European countries subject to the terror campaign had joined NATO before the bombings occurred). And watch this BBC special.
FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds alleges that Gladio is continuing to this day. And Edmonds previously told Washington’s Blog:
For the past 11 years I have been emphasizing that my State Secrets Privilege & Gag Orders had to do with the FBI files (covering period 1996-2002 February) on covert-terrorist operations in Caucasus and Central Asia backed, managed and armed by US actors. These US-NATO directed operations in the region involved Bin-Laden and mainly Zawahiri …..
The FBI documents contained damning evidence (audio and written) collected between 1996-2002 tying these terror operations directly to the U.S. persons in the State Department/CIA and Pentagon. Also, how the State Department got Congress to grant huge amounts of funds to “front’ NGOs and businesses (mainly Turkish companies in US-listed/members of ATC) to funnel money to the terrorist cells in this region.
We don’t know whether Edmonds or Engdahl are right, either.
But one thing is certain: the Ukranian situation is not as simple and one-sided as the American politicians and media would have you believe.
