The main source for the following is:
In March 1981, the Italian police found a list of the 962 members of P2.
The list contained the names of:
With the help of Masonic cardinals, the lodge 'had turned the Vatican into a money-laundering institution and the lodge was also the strongest branch of the legendary Italian Mafia'.
Reportedly, P-2 was behind many assassinations and bombings and was closely linked to the CIA's Operation Gladio. ( Operation Gladio - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia / Operation Gladio )
Reportedly, P-2 had been giving CIA and Vatican money to fascist groups in Europe and Latin America.
Reportedly, Michele Sindona was the treasurer of the P-2 and the investment advisor to the Vatican. ( Propaganda Due - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )
Reportedly, Sindona was working for the Mafia as well as the CIA and had previously given money to the Greek fascist military junta.
A parliamentary commission eventually discovered that 'the P-2 was an international organization influential in everything from arms trading to crude oil prices'.
P-2 had an Israeli connection.
The July 1981 issue of The Middle East International Journal stated that the P-2 had close links with Israel and Mossad.
Top people who allegedly had contact with P-2 include Henry Kissinger, Edmond de Rothschild, and David Rockefeller.
In 'The Pope, The Mafia and Agca', Ugur Mumcu, a Turkish journalist wrote:
"Henry Kissinger is a member of the Monte Carlo lodge, which is the P-2's 'board of directors,' also known as the Monte Carlo Committee. All the members of this lodge are Grand Masters and Masons of the 33rd degree."
Ex-Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky in 'The Other Side of Deception',1994, wrote that Licio Gelli, P-2's Grand Master, was the ally of Mossad in Italy and that Gelli also had a close relationship with the Gladio group. According to Ostrovsky, Mossad used this Gelli-Gladio alliance for its arms dealings with Italy in the 1980s. ( down with murder inc / Israel, Mossad, Iran and a Nuclear False Flag Attack )
The P-2 scandal suggested that the Masons could become a hidden government inside any country; and they could behave like the Mafia.
English journalist and writer Martin Short states that P-2 was a regular lodge. He describes the close relationship between P-2 and the English Grand Lodge. Short states that P-2 was different from other lodges only in that it was a secret lodge.
Former Italian prime ministers Giulio Andreotti and Bettino Craxi were reportedly Masons. The Mafia's boss of bosses, Salvatore Riina, was as a Mason. According to the newspaper La Stampa, Riina's stated that many Italian Mafia bosses and many judges were Masons; judges sometimes helped the Mafia.
Silvio Berlusconi was a P-2 member 'and had some interesting connections with Israel'.
The UK's Independent newspaper, 21st January 1995, reported that in the UK the Masons were an organization 300,000 strong, represented at the top of the police force, in the government, the House of Lords, the high court, banking, the boardrooms of the largest companies and every part of the establishment.
Gordon Brown is reportedly a freemason.
One lodge recruits only from the Ministry of Defense, among high-ranking officers, and the senior management of the arms industry.
The 'corruption of Roland Dumas', former French Foreign Minister and Mason, 'was covered up by other high-ranking government officials who were also Masons'. Le Point, the French weekly magazine, exposed other cases of corruption, revealing how the Masons covered up for each other in their illegal activities.
And what about 9 11 and the Iraq war?
