In USA, 1972 saw an escalating opposition to the Vietnam War. In Italy, the first Gladio bombing was carried out against the state apparatus, killing 3 policemen. This would eventually lead to the exposure of the whole program.

In 1972 Brian Michael Jenkins started work on the RAND/Terrorism Chronology Database of international "terrorism" using 3” x 5” index cards.[1]

Operation Gladio

Events

EventDateDescription
Tuskegee syphilis experiment1932 - 1972A murderous experiment which looked at the progression of syphilis. Subjects were told that they were being treated, while in fact treatment was denied them. Exposed after 40 years by a whistleblower who went to the press.
Operation Paperclip8 May 1945 - 1990A transfer of top German scientists to USA.
Cold War1947 - 1991The official narrative had 2 diametrically opposed systems locked in combat with one another since soon after WW2. Each of the "superpowers" and its team of allies needed to outdo each other by creating ever more and deadlier weapons, creating a kind of perpetual war for perpetual peace, with the warring parties engaging mainly in covert/proxy wars. Deep state interests blossomed in the climate of fear and paranoia.
Operation Demagnetize1948 - 1980"The institutional hardening of Gladio", an expansion of Gladio in the late 1940s, early 1950s.
Vietnam WarDecember 1956 - 30 April 1975The Vietnam War was a proxy war lead by US that occurred in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia from December 1956 to the fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975. Millions of people were killed, mostly Vietnamese. JFK was assassinated soon after declaring his intent to withdraw US troops. The war helped the CIA to refine its methods of illegal drug trafficking, torture and the like.
Chagos Archipelago/Depopulation1965 - 27 April 1973
Phoenix Program1965 - 1972
The Troubles1966 - 1998
Operation Condor1968 - 1989
Great Oil Sniffer Hoax1969 - 1979A fraudulent scheme purporting to be able to detect oil by a new technology. Details remain rather obscure.
Inslaw1970 - 1990The Inslaw affair was a complex financial/political fraud the full dimensions of which were never uncovered, but some of which were forced onto the official record.
Red Brigades{{Expansion depth limit exceeded
Bloody Sunday (1972)30 January 1972 16:10:00A shooting of unarmed civil rights protesters and bystanders by the British Army.
Bilderberg/197221 April 1972 - 23 April 1972
Peteano bombing31 May 1972A suicide bomb attack which lured 3 carabinieri to their deaths with a booby trapped car bomb. The cover up of this murder - and its later uncovering by Italian judge Felice Casson was a major event in the exposure of Operation Gladio.
Watergate coup17 June 1972 - 9 August 1974This is framed by the official narrative as a simple case of political corruption, one which proves that "the system works", since the powerful perpetrator was caught - if not actually brought to justice, since outgoing president Nixon was immediately pardoned by his successor, Gerald Ford. In fact it may well have been the outworking of a deeper political power struggle at work.
1972 Munich massacre5 September 1972 04:31:00 - 6 September 1972 00:04:00A famous attack on Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympics.
United Airlines Flight 5538 December 1972A plane crash which ended the life of the wife of E. Howard Hunt, suspected by some to have been an assassination.
