  •  Gladio and P-2 (none)
    For background on Gladio and P2:  


    "Links have...been proven between P2 and right-wing terrorism.

    What has not been conclusively shown is what direct links there might have been between the CIA and right-wing terrorism."

    (Charles Richards & Simon Jones, Independent, 16/11/90)

    "Licio Gelli, grandmaster of the P2 masonic lodge - which a parliamentary commission found had links with rightwing terrorists - recently had his
    jail sentence overturned on appeal.  Mr Gelli, as it happens, was a contact for CIA agents responsible for controlling communist influence in Italy."

    (Richard Norton-Taylor, Guardian, 16/11/90)

    "Links between Gladio, Italian secret service bosses and the notorious P2 masonic lodge are manifold. The chiefs of all three secret services - General Santovito (Sismi), Grassini (Sisde) and Cellari (Cessis) - were members of the lodge. In the year that Andreotti denied Gladio's existence [1974], the P2 treasurer, General Siro Dosetti, gave a generous account of "a secret security structure made up of civilians, parallel to the armed forces.""

    (Ed Vulliamy, Guardian, 5/12/90)

    La dedica di Licio Gelli a Saya tratta da una foto. Gelli scrive: "A Gaetano Saia. La verità ha un solo volto, quello dell'onestà verso gli altri e verso se stesso. Con stima e molta simpatia, Licio Gelli". La data è quella del 5/6/91  

    "To Gaetano Saia.  The truth has only one face, that of honesty towards others and to itself.  With fond regards, Licio Gelli"  Dated June 5, 1991
