On a side note, I found this rather interesting:
Before the US entered World War II, British intelligence carried out information operations against prominent US citizens deemed to be isolationists or sympathetic to the Nazis. Some historians who have examined relevant archives even suspect that British intelligence officers assassinated Nazi agents on US soil.
I did not know that.

The document appears to look at the issue of the US being an exporter of terrorism via it's citizens.
Actually, the issue of US being an exporter of terrorism and it being internationally understood is not because of American citizens on the whole, but because of the US Government and it's alphabet agencies (mainly the CIA) sponsoring military coups, dictatorships, terrorist groups, assassinations, bombings, shootings and economic sabotage and sanctions globally to achieve the aims of the US Corporate elite and government and it's backers which have led to the suffering, maiming, and killing of countless numbers of people worldwide.
The CIA document wishes to portray the danger of the US being recognised as an exporter of terrorism internationally because of American citizens.
A poor attempt by the CIA to deflect the blame for the US being recognised as exporting international terrorism away from itself.
The CIA is saying here to blame the American citizen, Make the American citizen the enemy terrorist instead, putting aside the fact that terrorist attacks by American citizens are minicule compared to those carried out in the name of the CIA and American government.
A precursor document 'justifying' a real clampdown, I fear. The citizen it seems, is now to be designated the enemy and the terrorist, not the CIA.
