On April 28th, 2013, at 11:34 CET, in front of the official residence of the Prime Minister of Italy, Luigi Preiti fired shots that hit 2 carabinieri (Giuseppe Giangrande and Francesco Negri) and a pregnant woman (Marina Stolfi). Oddly, there is very little in English-speaking media about the shooting that took place at Palazzo Chigi.
This is very suspicious, as we know elements of the mainstream media are controlled by the government. It seems as though they are meaning to discourage investigation on the matter, supplying their own official narrative instead...
Un false flag all'amatriciana?

April 28th, 11:34 CET, exactly as the new government was swearing-in with President Napolitano : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PcOAiIATd4
Historic transition for the Italian democracy:
History of the Italian Republic
The shooting took place on the day the Italian democracy shifted. From 1994 to 2013 there was a certain political competition: the center-left was fighting the center-right/Berlusconi. This power struggle has now transitioned into an alliance between the parties in the center. As a result, the parties at the extremes are pushed towards even more radical positions (from 1946 to 1989 there was a similar pattern of exclusionary alliances).
What was once a centripetal dynamic, where all parties are encouraged to compromise towards the center, has now become a centrifugal situation, where the center is always in power and rejects those at the extremes.
During the 1970s and 1980s, Italy witnessed the "strategy of tension." This program was implemented by the criminal element of the government (as it is being used today in the US), with the aim to exclude the "extreme" viewpoints from government and political discourse. This was accomplished by either falsely accusing them for terrorist acts, or actually encouraging/orchestrating these attacks.
In the present situation, with Grillo's Five Star Movement having received 25% of the votes, some are questioning whether the strategy of tension is being implemented again.
Enrico Letta is the new prime minister, being sworn-in as the shots were fired, but the February 2013 elections did not legitimize him at all: the candidate was actually Bersani, who opposed the center-right candidate Berlusconi. Letta was merely the deputy secretary of Bersani's party, Partito Democratico.
On March 22, President Giorgio Napolitano had asked Bersani to form a new government, but Bersani failed to strike a deal with the grassroots Five-Star Movement (M5S) which currently holds the balance of power. On April 19, Bersani stepped down from his post as Democratic Party leader, so Napolitano asked Enrico Letta to form the new government instead. Letta accepted the task of heading a grand coalition, but the Italian people would never have voted Letta as head of the Democratic Party, so this new appointment seems illegitimate to some. Enrico Letta is also a Bilderberg attendee, a Trilateral Commission member, part of the executive committee of the Aspen Institute Italia, and nephew of Gianni Letta. ).
Gianni Letta :On May 8, 2008, Letta returned the position of "secretary to the presidency of the council" to his uncle Gianni Letta. Part of Letta's duties for Berlusconi included co-ordinating the Italian government's activities with the Holy See. It is widely rumored by the press that re-elected President Giorgio Napolitano conspired with Gianni Letta to get Enrico sworn-in as Prime Minister, and that their secret meetings and negotiations were even held at the Letta's apartments. The Lettas are enthusiastic fans of Giulio Andreotti, who was proven to have made deals with the mafia and ruled Italy for decades (seeInvolvement in other judicial affairs for more info).
It seems that Enrico Letta, rather than the shooter, had the biggest motives for something like this to happen: It was a perfect timing for him. Especially, because the only remaining opposition, the Five Star Movement, is now accused by the press of having caused the anti-politics feelings in the country. As a result, they will not be as effective in pointing out who Enrico Letta really is, and what he stands for.
The bomber: "I was aiming at politicians"
His confession is not convincing, not even for the sell-out journalists [link] .
Why this perfect timing? [minute 52]
He claims that he planned everything out carefully, including the perfect timing, but why did he shoot two cops instead of a politician which was his initial objective? It's very easy to find politicians in the street near Rome (see this recent video of Franceschini, who just became minister with the new government: [link], [Link 2])
What is the probability that someone shoot at cops six times and nobody gets seriously hurt? Going to Palazzo Chigi to shoot at cops is a suicide attempt and he doesn't seem suicidal at all. What is the probability that someone could go to Palazzo Chigi, shoot six times at cops, and get out of it unscathed? What is the probability that cops see a man shooting at them and do not shoot back but grab him instead? [Link]
They say there's at least six cameras that display what happened that day on that square: why aren't they showing the videos? With all the people shooting videos at that moment, there isn't a single video showing what happened. This is the closest video to it: [Link]
And this is all we get to see, from the media: [Youmedia link]
Overall, the most suspicious things are:
1. the perfect timing, very useful for a new government (emergency, let's all support the government, like on 911)
2. the shooter's willingness to die is not supported by his background, nor what his relatives/friends are saying
3. how it's been used by the media to gang up on Grillo's Five Star Movement, a threat to the establishment
If the powers that be wanted to incriminate Goldman Sachs asset Beppe Grillo, we can assume that another Banking faction was behind the event (perhaps one that favors the maintenance of the Eurozone). It may also have been a reminder for the new prime minister to sabotage the austerity reforms, because Anglo-American banksters want to ruin the EU altogether.

It is the late morning of April 28th, 2013: the national networks are broadcasting live the swearing-in ceremony of the new government. It is a government born according to the diktats of supranational bodies that control this country, which has lost its national sovereignty a long time ago.
This day marks a turning point for those who have decided yet another coup. It is a decisive moment for a government and a little known leader, Enrico Letta (nephew of Gianni Letta, the right-hand man of Berlusconi), who lack popular support, and urgently need to be legitimized in the eyes of their citizens. Italians are confused and a part of them is angry, because only two months earlier they voted for three opposing coalitions and leaders (Bersani, Berlusconi, Monti), which are now joining in support of the Letta cabinet. Most Italians on the left, including those who voted Beppe Grillo's Five Star Movement at the last elections, after hearing their leaders (Bersani and the Partito Democratico's leaders) say, for the last 20 years, that Berlusconi is corrupt and immoral, are now having a hard time understanding the need to form a government together with him and his people. And finally, the new government needs a casus belli in order to further restrict the freedoms of its citizens, with the introduction of new rules to prohibit gatherings and demonstrations in "sensitive" places, such as the Parliament (which is near the Italian Government headquarters), where Beppe Grillo until recently encouraged mass gatherings of supporters angry at politicians.
It's the best day for a shooting on "live television", and someone, from the powers that be, decides to plan and stage a wild west showdown, with two sacrificial victims from the military, whereas the attacker has to be an embittered citizen, unemployed and eager to physically eliminate some politician. So, just as we're used with American false flag cinematography, as the major networks are showing the swearing-in ceremony, the live coverage is abruptly interrupted to show... a "live" broadcast of the shooting, right in front of Palazzo Chigi, the Italian government headquarters.
It's 11:40 AM (CET) and RAI News 24 broadcasts the chaotic and shaky video of an unknown attacker who supposedly opens fire on the Carabinieri on duty in Piazza Colonna in Rome, in front of the government headquarters, Palazzo Chigi. It's quite hard to understand what is going on, because the camera operator, despite his presumed skills, brings his camera from one target to another, zooming back and forth, pointing up, pointing to the ground... in short, this is the worst footage from a camera operator in the whole history of RAI state television. This fact alone immediately raises doubts as to what is happening in those instants. The questions increase when they mention three wounded people: two Carabinieri and a pregnant woman. They say that one of the two police officers is seriously wounded in the neck, whereas the other one was supposedly shot in the leg. The attacker, Luigi Preiti, seems to have fired 7 shots from his Beretta 7.65 caliber, without them shooting back at all! Very strange... and we will later see that the attacker actually got away unscathed.
Another anomaly is that the two minor casualties (the officer injured in the leg and the pregnant woman) are nowhere to be seen in any of the videos, while the attacker is already on the ground, in front of the armored vehicle of the Carabinieri, beyond the crowd control barriers.
The female reporter of RAI News 24, who sounds like a very bad actress, describes to the anchor a "terrifying scene." Compare that with the images they have just shown in their "live broadcast". Their footage shows a man wearing a t-shirt and shorts, telling three officers to move further to the right (what is he, the movie director?), while, in the middle of a few tourists screaming and running. Three photojournalists, at leisure, take their shots and videos, getting as close as a few meters away from the crime scene. Once again, none of those pictures and videos were ever made available to the public. All this is in sharp contrast to the only video we see, from RAI, where the camera operator shakes like a leaf, despite the fact that he is dozens of meters away. It seems as though his purpose was precisely to not show us what happened in those crucial moments.
One of the desired objectives is achieved right away, as bodyguards are immediately reinstated for all those politicians who had lost it due to budget cuts, and it is increased for those who already had it.
When we analyze the video by RAI News 24, we see that some frames have been manipulated. The edited frames happen to coincide with those few moments when you can see the face of the carabiniere injured in the neck, Giuseppe Giangrande, yet his face has been blurred (by amateur post-production editing?). This blurring also affects part of the steel tubing in front of his face. Just before the operator abruptly moves the camera away from the "injured" officer, we can see that he does not have blood on his neck.
We have mentioned the post-production editing... how is this possible, if the images, as we have been told, were "live"? Clearly, they were not, and this is proven by the time showing on the wrist watch of an officer who is seen next to Giangrande (cfr. picture above). His wrist watch reads 11:30, whereas the live news of RAI News 24 (as well as that of Tgcom24) reads 11:40 on the screen. Ten minutes is more than enough to prepare a fake live broadcast (the author of this article speculates that is what happened on September 11th, 2001, in New York City).
In addition, we have a witness, an expert on weapons, who happened to be on the crime scene, and he confirms that it was roughly 11:30, and he also remembers that the explosive sounds he heard seemed to be caused by blank cartridges! It's also interesting to note that the video in question, which was displayed on the Youtube channel of "Il Fatto Quotidiano", was removed.
There is a second video, produced a few minutes later, again by RAI News 24, near the wounded officer Giangrande, on the ground, shot in the neck, which contains a series of overlapping audio. You hear the sirens in the background, while, at second 10 and second 24 (in the original video), you will hear two people shouting, "God!" and "Are we joking?" (in Italian, "Dio!" and "Che stamo a scherza’?"). Then another voice seems to say: "Can't you see?" (in Italian, "Che... non vedi?"). Then the sound is cut off and you hear the female reporter gasping for breath, while a security guard tells everyone to leave.
Now why would someone ask " Are we joking?" Is he witnessing a staged event? Would someone witnessing a real shooting ask if they're joking? There may be some manipulation of the audio track, because this excerpt "Are we joking?" is heard twice in the video. If this is a false flag event, it may have involved the Italian mainstream media networks.
Tgcom24 (owned by Berlusconi) broadcasts its "live" feed from Palazzo Chigi, and, exactly like RAI News 24, it interrupts its link to the swearing-in ceremony to connect "live" to the crime scene. It is worth noting how the female reporter hesitates, and then starts her report again, from the beginning, three times, when she sees that the "live" video was stopped and then resumed. One can easily see that there must be six or seven camera angles of the events, most of which have yet to be released.
According to the official version, the attacker, Luigi Preiti, shot officer Giuseppe Giangrande at close range (less than half a meter), pointing the gun at the head of the carabiniere, while he was standing next to him, near the sentry box. The carabiniere was shot while he was standing, so one would think the blood should have dripped down vertically, toward his chest. Instead, the blood trickles down his neck only laterally.
In the video broadcasted by RAI News 24 we can see Giangrande's face without blood, while at the side of his right hand we can see a cylinder-shaped object, and red liquid flowing from it. Normally with a neck wound the blood squirts profusely, but you can not see traces of blood on the uniform, under the chin, or in the area near Giangrande's neck.
There are no traces of gunpowder, typical of shots fired from such a close distance. Also, the entry hole is tiny and incompatible with the one caused by a 7.65 caliber at close range.
The officer on the ground is about ten meters away from where he was when he was shot by Preiti, according to the official narrative.
The medical report, issued by the surgeons who allegedly operated on Giangrande, mentions a bullet which entered from the left side of the neck and stuck the scapula, passing through the vertebral column. This would imply a curvilinear trajectory, as well as from top to bottom. This injury is not consistent with being shot at by another person of the same height.
Physicians describe breathing difficulties, but the officer on the ground, judging from the available photos and video footage, although of poor quality, does not appear to be gasping. If Giangrande really had suffered the impairments suggested by surgeons, wouldn't he have died in those conditions since (according to the official version) the first ambulance arrived almost 10 minutes after the fact.
Speaking of the ambulances, one cannot understand where the sirens heard in the second video are coming from, if, as stated by the official version, the first ambulance arrived 10 minutes later.
Among the other things, all the agents around Giangrande, rather than being worried about him, seem worried about keeping camera operators and reporters away. And actually there isn't a single picture or video where we can see a paramedic near the injured carabiniere on the ground. One of the plain-clothes police officers is holding an intravenous drip, but, according to photos later released to newspapers and television stations, the intravenous drip isn't inserted in anyone's arm, and indeed, during the Tgcom24 video, the plain-clothes agent raises for a moment the bottle (for a show, in front of the video cameras), then a few moments later, covered by his colleagues, he puts it back on the ground. Obviously, there is no intravenous drip that can operate properly unless it is kept higher than the arm, and especially if there is no needle in a vein!
In addition, as mentioned before, where is the officer wounded in the leg and the pregnant woman? No picture or photograph shows their presence at the "crime scene."
Let us now turn to the attacker: he arrives in Piazza Colonna wearing a suit and a tie, with designer clothes, and shoes worth 150 euros. He is well-groomed and certainly does not look like a construction worker who has been unemployed for quite a while. He looks like a hit man, rather than a destitute and desperate person. According to the official version, the attacker said he wanted to shoot a politician, but no politician was present at the time of the shooting, and so he opted for a different target. All Preiti had to do is wait a few minutes and he could have shot at plenty of politicians, but... for some reason he didn't. Furthermore, in downtown Rome you can find politicians everywhere, as is shown by this recent video of Franceschini (the current Minister of Relations with Parliament and Coordination of Governmental Activity).
The "mentally unbalanced" attacker has short hair, but more than that: he has the classic (Italian) military haircut. He is also perfectly shaved. The suit he wears is identical to those used by security officers in governmental settings.
According to the sequences of the first video by RAI News 24, the attacker can be spotted, almost from the start of the video, behind the crowd control barriers, and, a few moments after we hear the last shot, he is grabbed, downed and then kicked. But the official version says he is on the other side of the square, about 6 meters away from the truck and the crowd control barriers. Even a fool, trying to escape after shooting, would not have run in the arms of the carabinieri, overcoming the crowd control barriers and standing between these and the armored police vehicle.
The handgun and the magazine of the aggressor were laid on the ground with precision, although no one was allowed to touch the gun before the arrival of the forensics team. The attacker, letting his gun drop to the ground, would be hard-pressed to arrange the gun and magazine so close together. Furthermore, see the photo of the newspaper "La Repubblica", where the magazine appears to be loaded. One last thing to remark is that, once unloaded, the Beretta 7.65 gets stuck.
Luigi Preiti, supposedly wounded in the head during the scuffle with the agents, shows no injury, no swelling, no bandages, as he leaves the police headquarters, a few hours later:
Let us discuss the mystery of the drill bit that Preiti had in his bag. In addition to the bullets (about fifty) he had in his bag, according to the official report, investigators have also found a drill bit: what was it for? Why did he bring it along? The first (official) hypothesis is that he used the tool to remove the serial number from the gun he used to shoot the two carabinieri. The problem is that, always according to the official version, Preiti told the magistrates that he had already bought the gun with the serial number etched off, in the black market in Genoa, four years ago.
Another thing that is unclear is Preiti's recent whereabouts and movements. The attacker is supposed to have left Gioia Tauro by train on Saturday at 9.35 AM. When he reached Praia a Mare the railroad police asked him for his documents. It was a routine check, so he remained imperturbable. He probably had his weapon in his bag, but, with no criminal record, it was unlikely that he would have been searched. He arrives at Termini railway station at 15:00. Shortly after that, he arrives at the Hotel Concorde, just behind Piazza dei Cinquecento. He takes the last available room. He goes out soon after. The doorman said: "He went out at around 17:00. Between 18.00 and 19.00 he came back and never left since then. "
When he is stopped after the shooting, Preiti is carrying a bag. Inside it, besides the drill bit, they find a map of Rome, marked in several places, not only Palazzo Chigi, where the shooting allegedly took place. The question is: was he the one who marked the map, indicating the path that would lead him to Palazzo Chigi, or did someone else do it for him? Indeed it is not yet known what Preiti did between leaving the hotel and the shooting.
Regarding his clothes. Preiti is wearing a suit that is identical to those worn by security guards at Palazzo Chigi and other institutional headquarters. It is an element that prompts us to think that the attacker has not acted on impulse, because he was desperate. His action was thoughtful, clear headed, organized. Not to mention that Preiti, according to the official version, shot with marksman accuracy (if he did shoot), and managed to hit where the carabinieri were not protected by the bulletproof vest.
Always from the video sequences by RAI, we see Giangrande lie on the ground (rather than collapsing), about ten meters away from the armored vehicle of the carabinieri, behind the crowd control barriers, and at least seven meters away from the point where, according to the official version, he was shot by Preiti.
In summary, after the only shot heard in the first RAI video, we can see two or three officers calmly bend down to the ground, in front of the armored vehicle and behind the crowd control barriers, along with the alleged attacker, who is already on the ground. At the same time, on the opposite side, officer Giuseppe Giangrande lies down on the pavement, also behind the crowd control barriers. The location of the protagonists in this event is completely inconsistent with what reported by the media and this alone would call into question the authenticity of what took place, but the huge amount of data collected so far, even without analyzing them all, indicates that we are may be dealing with a false flag event, implemented with the cooperation and complicity of the media.
And it is quite curious that Wikipedia, after, at first, creating a page to specifically tell the official version of the powers that be, now has blocked that same page, after removing all previous content and not allowing it to be available even through Google's cache. Who has a guilty conscience and why?
The TG2 anchorwoman said: "The government just took office with full powers of shooting." A Freudian slip of great importance. The three videos can be viewed here, here and here. If for some reason you are unable to view them, go to this page, where you'll find all three videos.
