December 18, 2014:
Today WikiLeaks has released a previously secret U.S. Central Intelligence Agency document, dated 7 July, 2009 entitled
“Best Practices in Counterinsurgency: Making High-Value Targeting Operations an Effective Counterinsurgency Tool” (.pdf) We are making it available through our website as a service to our readers worldwide.
We also present to our readers Chapter 11 of the previously released CIA KUBARK manual on “Counterintelligence Interrogation” which covers “Coercive Counterintelligence Interrogation of Resistant Sources”. This excerpt from the larger document was previously released by George Washington University’s “National Security Archive”, in a censored form from an earlier FOIA release. In March 2014, this document was re-released by the CIA in a far less censored form.
The “National Security Archive” is an extremely valuable online repository of declassified US Government documents chronicling the long, repulsive history of the US Government’s murderous assaults on the revolutionary and reformist elements of the workers movement worldwide.
The “National Security Archive” is the source of this complete and less-redacted version of the 1963 KUBARK manual which we release here in one continuous .pdf document: 2014 release 1963 KUBARK manual_Counterintelligence_Interrogation. We would like to remind our readers that this document was produced by the CIA under the auspices and with the approval of the “lesser evil” Democratic Party’s John F. Kennedy administration.
These documents demonstrate that the United States Government’s CIA killers did not start torturing and assassinating people after “the world changed” in September of 2001. The US Government has been condoning and enforcing torture consistently since its inception: first, primarily against Native Americans, African slaves and convicted criminals all over the United States right up through modern times; and also overseas from the very dawn of US imperialism. Torture has been carried out by the US military and US spy agencies and their client states in Puerto Rico, Cuba, Nicaragua, Haiti, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Chile, the Dominican Republic, the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam and many other places. As we acquire more documents like the ones listed above we will add them to our archive. We encourage our readers to send us similar documentary evidence of the long history of US torture and assassination programs, which we will be happy to publish on this website.
