Secret Struggle for Cold War Dominance.2021

Terrorism is no new threat, it troubled the Romans as much as it did the Russian monarchs. The Cold War, however, turned terrorism into a global televised drama personified by “the Bin Laden of the Cold War” and “enemy number one”- Carlos the Jackal. Who was this tall man in a black beret, thick glasses, and a smirk on his face? How was the Carlos myth created, was he really that prolific and ‘successful’ and how do you get rid of such a hothead, politely? In this episode we look at why the US was sure the East was runninga worldwide terrorism network and we explore whether all Eastern bloc countries were best friends with Carlos the Jackal. 

This is a story of guns, kidnappings and murders but also a story of a small Eastern bloc country pulling a daring trick on the Cold War’s most feared terrorist.
