Gladio (Italian, from Latin gladius, meaning sword) is a code name denoting the clandestine NATO "stay-behind" operation in Italy after World War II, intended to counter an eventual Warsaw Pact invasion of Western Europe. Although Gladio specifically refers to the Italian branch of the NATO stay-behind organizations, "Operation Gladio" is used as an informal name for all stay-behind organizations.
Olav Phillips, a Conspiracy Researcher, discussed some of the doings of Gladio and helped to see where their fingerprints are today. He explained how even in the case of 9/11, the Gladio Operation could be seen. Olav stated, "This is something that makes you doubt everything." Unlike most other conspiracies, Gladio has been exposed in Italy and there are documents to back up it's existence.
Note: The interview begins after the 10 minute mark. The first 10 minutes is just meaningless radio chatter. What follows, however, is a good history of Gladio and it's implications today. This interview is from 10/19/08.
