Wikileaks Gets Hold of Special Forces Counterinsurgency Manual


tech.slashdot.org

Wikileaks has published a US Special Forces counterinsurgency manual, titled Foreign Internal Defense Tactics Techniques and Procedures for Special Forces (1994, 2004)

The document, which has been verified, is official US Special Forces doctrine. It directly advocates training paramilitaries, pervasive surveillance, censorship, press control and restrictions on labor unions & political parties.

The actual article on Wikileaks can be found here, and the PDF of the Manual can be found here.

More from the slashdot article:

It directly advocates warrantless searches, detainment without charge and the suspension of habeas corpus. It directly advocates bribery, employing terrorists, false flag operations and concealing human rights abuses from journalists. And it directly advocates the extensive use of 'psychological operations' (propaganda) to make these and other 'population & resource control' measures more palatable.



I'm still going through it and I think it will shock some people, but I'm sure many of you were already aware of these tactics and operations.

Wow. They must have an identical manual for domestic operations because all of those ops are going on right here, right now.

Nice find.

Nice little laundry list of dirty tactics. This is my favorite..


Civilian Self-Defense Forces [Paramilitaries, or, especially in an El-Salvador or Colombian civil war context, right wing "death squads"]

When a village accepts the CSDF program, the insurgents cannot choose to ignore it. To let the village go unpunished will encourage other villages to accept the government's CSDF program. The insurgents have no choice; they have to attack the CSDF village to provide a lesson to other villages considering CSDF. In a sense, the psychological effectiveness of the CSDF concept starts by reversing the insurgent strategy of making the government the repressor. It forces the insurgents to cross a critical threshold-that of attacking and killing the very class of people they are supposed to be liberating.


Shiites and Sunnis anyone..?

This is sad indeed. Its like they're taking lessons directly from Hitler's war auto-biography Mein Kampf, which details how war is not won at the end of a gun, but by the use of domestic and foreign propoganda.

Looks like the entire wikileaks site is down at the moment. I would assume that the document will still be available when the site is back up.

Could someone who possibly saved the file upload it to a site like megaupload or YSI so that those of us who didn't have a chance to look at it could see it though?

Or maybe the governemtn is forcibly deleteing stuff.

I hope yall have the pdf open and save it...

BE careful with such information. The intent of the world is to progress forward... so leaking this will indefinately hurt future... capable operations.

Flag this thread!

I've always liked wikileaks.com, mainly for their bravery!

I really don't think this is something new, Tom Clancy's book on the Green Beret's outlines all of this information. The Special Forces aren't really that secretive, except for the details of the SERE and Q course.

For everyone that can't access Wikileaks, I have uploaded the pdf that I downloaded from the site earlier on to Zoho:

You can read it online here, or download the file here.

hmmm

Possibly you all should Read the First page and make a decision.

This is exactly why the government doesn't like such sites as these


I hope this problem doesn't escalate because of release of such information.

This jeopardizes the lives of the very men trying to protect us


The threat is very real for all the nay sayers


What now?

Brilliant move posting this to the interweb like we weren’t losing enough people over there already
To who ever originally posted this on the net, out of curiosity do you tell your opponent every move your about to make when your in a street fight?

And you think the 'enemy' doesn't already know the US employs (and have employed) these sort of tactics and operations?

I'm guessing you were also against disclosing the 'enhanced interrogation' tactics in Guantanamo and other places, because the 'terrorists' could adapt to them...

Yeah, the real traitors are the ones disclosing the illegal activities of the Government and Military of the United States (and other countries)...

If I had Shown this Document to one of America's Founding Fathers and told him the it was American's who wrote and are in the process of carrying out such atrocities; He would not believe me. In fact, I'd be in a lot of trouble right then;

Jefferson would have gutted me there and then, Sam Adams would have challenged me to a duel (with guns), and Washington would have tore my throat out for speaking such lies.... I won't even imagine what Patton would have done to the men who wrote this document.

Men in the past have dared put such things on paper before, remember the Document Burn-Fests that went on as the allies encroached upon Germany?
Notice how this document has a warning that it is to be destroyed after use...

Why do you think that is? Fear of the Coming War Crimes Tribunals?

If Americans don't straighten out their country themselves, Globalists will do it for them - unfortunately.
