Thorough-going account state-sponsored terror during Cold War and up to Now!
on 1 October 2013
Cottrell's 400 page + tome is a wholesale exposure of the NATO State-Sponsored Terror during the Cold War (France, Greece, Bulgaria, Italy, Germany) through to its contemporary manifestations in the "War on Terror" (911, Madrid, 7/7, Norway).
Cottrell has certainly done his homework and many readers will be shocked to discover that the official media have covered up all these crimes since Day One. On each occasion they have spun the cover-up story the intelligence services demanded. The number of investigative journalists willing to brave the death threats and dig deeper has been understandably small. Some have paid the ultimate price.
After reading this book you will never again give one iota of credence to the official account of a state-sponsored terror attack-like the one that just happened in Kenya-again.
I came across only a couple of odd omissions. First, the increasing dependence of embattled crisis-managing elites on false-flag terror is exquisitely theorized in Sanguinetti's earlier work on Gladio operations in Italy during the 1970s. No mention of Sanguinetti here. There was room for more theoretical grounding in Cottrel's book. Second, in his coverage of 7/7 Cottrell never mentions one of the witnesses to the bus bomb who died in mysterious circumstances not long after being first hailed as the heroine of the hour when she treated some of the victims of the outrage, then trashed as a bogus doctor by the media when her story did not tally with official accounts.
RIP Richmal Oates-Whitehead and all the other truth-tellers who have perished since the Pentagon-NATO axis began operations.
