From the December 2007 Idaho Observer:

Former Italian prime minister claims 9/11 was planned and carried out by Mossad

Widely read Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera reported Nov. 30, 2007, that former Prime Minister Francesco Cossiga, 80, stated that 9/11 was planned and executed by the Mossad and CIA and that the international intelligence community knows it. Though not a perfect translation, Cossiga said, "From neighboring environments in Palazzo Chigi, nerve center of Italian intelligence direction, it points out that non-authenticity of the video is evidenced by the fact that Osama Bin Laden in it ‘confesses’ that Al Qaeda was the author of the assassination 11 September at two towers in New York, while all environments Democrats of America and Europe, with those at the forefront of Italian center, now know well that the disastrous attack was planned and carried out by the American CIA and the Mossad with the help of the Zionist world order accused the Arab countries and to induce the Western powers to intervene in Iraq and in Afghanistan."

Cossiga, a former Italian Secret Service head and prime minister from 1985-1992, is honored as a rare breed (an honest politician). He was forced to resign as prime minister after testifying to the existence of and participation in setting up Operation Gladio, post WWII anti-communist intelligence group attached to NATO. "However, with the backing of their founders or not, the ‘Gladio’ secret paramilitary force in Italy decided to stray from its founding purpose, and actively influence Italian politics rightward through bombings, subversion, and ‘false flag’ attacks, even with no Soviet invasion looming. Much of this activity was coordinated by ‘ex’-fascists involved in the NATO-founded group, through the pseudo-masonic ‘P2’ lodge," wrote Paul Joseph Watson for Prison Planet.

Among the atrocities committed by Gladio operatives was the Bologna Massacre which killed 84 people in a false flag attempt to implicate leftist groups in terrorism and create a climate of fear to justify the implementation of reactionist policies by government.

Regarding Gladio, there were trials and convictions; people in high places went to prison. Regarding Cossiga’s qualifications as an intelligence analyst, there seems to be no dispute: The Mossad and CIA planned and executed 9/11 and the entire global intelligence network knows it. That also means that the true identity of the 9/11 conspirators has been known by the White House all along and that the deadly war on terror is a false flag fraud.

What Cossiga states to be true should come as no surprise as it fits the model of problem-reaction-solution and 400 years of boilerplate false flag operations.
