ER Editor: So finally, the false flag phenomenon gets a public airing in Spain via a former police commissioner, who is willing to have his notes and records made public to prove his claims about Spanish intelligence involvement in so-called ‘terrorist’ attacks back in 2017. We see from an article cited below that it was to instill fear in the CATALONIAN people, who were seeking independence from Spain at the time.
We had published a few stories back in 2017 on the so-called ‘terrorist’ attacks in Barcelona. See

We remind readers of the Gladio phenomenon, about which much credible historical research has been written. Paramilitary, far-right (correct use of the term) ‘stay behinds’ created cells throughout Europe with NATO’s blessing and involvement, as well as Henry Kissinger‘s (his involvement was revealed later on in an Italian court), but especially in Italy, where they were ready to launch attacks to accomplish at least two things: 1. discredit groups perceived as far-left (or set them up to be discredited, because the Deep State / elites of the day were worried about the influence of Soviet communism in Europe, especially Italy); 2. make the populations of certain countries fearful (think: the Covid scam), ready to turn to the government for its pre-made ‘solutions’ to problems the governments created in the first place. Gladio operatives were actually responsible for the kidnap and murder of Italian leader Aldo Moro, as well as the bombing of the Bologna train station. The BBC made a documentary of this (Youtube link – remarkably, it’s still there), where one of the Gladio operatives confirmed that the goal was to make the population afraid and dependent on the government. Some analysts have called the creation of ‘Islamic’ terrorist cells in order to achieve western Deep State goals ‘Gladio B’.
It is linked to below, but we recommend checking out the report on which the FreeWest Media article is based. See Calls for investigation after alleged links between Spanish intelligence and terror attacks. Of note:
Political figures and entities are calling for a thorough investigation into the alleged links between Spain’s National Intelligence Center (CNI) and the 2017 terror attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils, as claimed by a former high-ranking police official in court on Tuesday.
José Manuel Villarejo believes Spanish intelligence was complicit in the attacks and has followed that up on Wednesday by saying he has evidence to back this claim up.
In statements to the media on Wednesday, he said that the proof is in his files and notes, which he stated were “secret” and therefore asked that they be made accessible to the public. “The most obvious proof of all is that they don’t want to give me my files,” he said.
He assured that Spanish intelligence was involved in the August 2017 attacks, but clarified that his comments were not meant to be construed as the CNI provoking the attack, but instead he said they wanted to “give the appearance of risk” so that Catalonia “felt the need for protection” of Spain.
On Tuesday he said that the events of August 17, 2017, “were a serious mistake” on the part of Spain’s former National Intelligence Center (CNI) director, Féliz Sanz Roldán. A total of 16 people lost their lives that day when a van drove down the middle of the La Rambla boulevard at speed.
The CNI head “wanted to give Catalonia a fright” ahead of the October 1, 2017 referendum, but “miscalculated the consequences,” Villarejo said on Tuesday.
Spain’s secret service alleged to have carried out Barcelona terror attacks
The terrorist attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils in August 2017 were planned and executed by the country’s secret service, a former senior officer in Spain’s National Police Corps maintain.
Ex-police commissioner Jose Manuel Villarejo said attacks which included a truck ramming into pedestrians on La Rambla in Barcelona, killing 16 people and injuring 152, “were a serious mistake” by former National Intelligence Service (CNI) director Feliz Sanz Roldan.
Roldan “miscalculated the consequences”. In Cambrils, the day after the Barcelona attack, the jihadist cell launched a knife attack on the beachfront, killing one person. The alleged mastermind of the attacks, an imam in the city of Ripoll, had been a CNI informant.
All five jihadists were eventually shot and killed by police. The night before the Barcelona attack, an “accidental” explosion occurred in Alcanar, destroying the building and killing two members of the terrorist cell, including the 40-year-old imam.
Villarejo’s comments were made in court during a case involving police spying allegations. He said he could prove the allegations: “All the evidence is in my archives. I authorise their release. We must think that the citizenry is not a minor and the law of secrets cannot be used to hide everything. It is an obsolete Francoist law from 1968.”
Some opposition parties said Villarejo’s statements were a very serious accusation involving the CNI’s collaboration with “jihadist terrorist cells”.
Jihadist mastermind closely linked to CNI
The CNI helped the mastermind of the 2017 Barcelona terror attacks to become an imam in Ripoll, where the subsequent jihadist cell was based, three years before the incidents, according to a report by the Público digital newspaper. Spain’s secret services recruited Abdelbaki Es Satty as an informant in 2014, in exchange for not deporting him.
The imam had spent four years in jail from 2010 to 2014 for drug dealing, and it is during this period that he was hired as an informant by the CNI. They even “fixed recommendations and guarantors” so that he could be admitted as imam in Ripoll, in order to set up the cell.
The government of Catalonia is considering a legal response. Catalan President Peres Aragones commented on social media that the attack “was a barbarity that has marked us forever – and if Villarejo’s words are true, explanations are needed now”
“We know very well how the state sewers work, so we demand that they be investigated in order to clarify the truth. I have also asked the legal services of the government to study these statements and the relevant legal actions that can be taken. For the truth. For the victims, for the Catalans and for all those who are on the side of peace and democracy.”
The Spanish government, however, dismissed the claims, saying that Villarejo “has no credibility”. An official said the former police commissioner had a “long history of trying to cast shadows of suspicion without ever providing evidence” and his “insinuations have no logical or material basis”.
A spokesperson for the Catalan Socialists also rejected Villarejo’s claims as a “conspiracy theory”. The requests for an investigation should not be taken seriously since the ex-commissioner “does not have to tell the truth during a trial” and only wants to “make noise”.
Villarejo made headlines in 2018 after he leaked conversations with former King Juan Carlos’ lover Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein, which prompted a prosecutor in Switzerland to open an investigation against the former monarch for allegedly having received $100 million from Saudi Arabia in 2008.
Villarejo also revealed that he had created a prostitution network in order to obtain information about influential politicians and business figures. “The important thing is that they explained things to draw the attention of the women,” said Villarejo. The same website moncloa.com leaked excerpts in which a Spanish minister admitted that “several Spanish judges and prosecutors ended up with minors” during a trip to Cartagena de Indias, in Colombia.
