Released by the Freedom of Information Act. This document is a thorough description of how the CIA recommends interrogating a subject. To get the information that is needed there is nothing withheld short of torture. For example in "Threats and Fears," the CIA authors note that "the threat of coercion usually weakens or destroys resistance more effectively than coercion itself. The threat to inflict pain, for example, can trigger fears more damaging than the immediate sensation of pain." Under the subheading "Pain," the guidelines discuss the theories behind various thresholds of pain, and recommend that a subject's "resistance is likelier to be sapped by pain which he seems to inflict upon himself" such rather than by direct torture. The report suggests forcing the detainee to stand at attention for long periods of time. A section on sensory deprivations suggests imprisoning detainees in rooms without sensory stimuli of any kind, "in a cell which has no light," for example.

There are many ways to handle manipulation by individuals, a group, or government. Firstly, we need to recognise and understand a manipulative act, how it works, its motives, and why we, in particular, are its victims. To this end, the author seeks to illuminate "Human Manipulation" at all levels. This analysis provides the reader with a detailed definition, an understanding of the history and morality of human manipulation and an insight into the psychology of the manipulator and victim. The book identifies and examines 450 manipulative techniques in detail and explains what a victim can do to recognise, avoid and counteract them. Manipulation generally relies on human ignorance. So the better informed we are, the better our chances of detecting and managing manipulation when it is directed at us. This handbook is probably the most comprehensive study of human manipulation anywhere. It is a "must have" for any serious student of the subject.

If The West Falls If the West Falls is the result of four years of research that began when the author learned that she was a target of US Government sponsored Organized Vigilante Stalking. Her investigation into the crime that had been committed against her led her to an understanding of the crime that is being committed by the United States government against the people of this nation and the rest of the world. The author’s investigation reveals • The presence of a fascist underground controlling the life of this nation and the lives of American people • The plans of secret societies such as the Bilderbergers, the Trilateral Commission and the Council of Foreign relations to dissolve the national sovereignty of the United States of America • The influence of the occult in public institutions and the American Christian Church • Crimes being committed by US governing officials being covered up by the National Security Act including the exploitation of children • Exploitation of American citizens and people around the world under the Patriot Act and the Military Commissions Act

WINNING THE MIND GAME OF ESPIONAGE Official C.I.A. declassified material. New introduction, glossary & updated index. Full-size 8.5"x11" format. IMPORTANT: this manual was first released under the Freedom of Information Act in 1997, heavily redacted. It was released again in 2014, with a large amount of additional newly-declassified material. Unlike older versions available, which contain only the 1997 content, this edition effectively contains both versions: the newly-released 2014 material is printed in bold text. Get the full version! Newly-digitized text: large, clear print - NOT a cheap scanned copy! "Batteries last hours, books last decades: get the print edition!" Extracting actionable intelligence from an uncooperative suspect is a subject fraught with difficulty. When the stakes are as high as those of anti-Soviet counterintelligence investigations of the Cold War, those difficulties multiply. This unique, now-declassified manual makes an unflinching and in-depth examination of the techniques of the CIA interrogator tasked with tracking down and exposing moles, sleepers, double-agents and more. It equips the reader with the tools to "read", question, influence, manipulate and eventually break even the most recalcitrant subject - and the ability to recognize when these powerful techniques are used against you! "Its treatment of the human dynamic between interrogator and interrogatee, and the fundamentals of the counterintelligence mindset, are evergreen and highly instructive. Far from being a historical document only, this is a profitable read for anyone who wishes to better-understand the strategy, tactics, and interplay of the battle for possession of knowledge played out between investigator and suspect. Moreover, its frank treatment of 'coercive' techniques is a unique and salutary education in the ways of intelligence operatives and secret police around the world - in particular, those of countries ruled by repressive regimes whose representatives may not observe the 'profound moral objection[s]" the book describes." - From the Publisher's Introduction. Information purposes only. Proudly published in the U.S.A. by CARLILE MEDIA.

From mass murder to genocide, slavery to colonial suppression, acts of atrocity have lives that extend far beyond the horrific moment. They engender trauma that echoes for generations, in the experiences of those on both sides of the act. Gabriele Schwab reads these legacies in a number of narratives, primarily through the writing of postwar Germans and the descendents of Holocaust survivors. She connects their work to earlier histories of slavery and colonialism and to more recent events, such as South African Apartheid, the practice of torture after 9/11, and the "disappearances" that occurred during South American dictatorships. Schwab's texts include memoirs, such as Ruth Kluger's Still Alive and Marguerite Duras's La Douleur; second-generation accounts by the children of Holocaust survivors, such as Georges Perec's W, Art Spiegelman's Maus, and Philippe Grimbert's Secret; and second-generation recollections by Germans, such as W. G. Sebald's Austerlitz, Sabine Reichel's What Did You Do in the War, Daddy?, and Ursula Duba's Tales from a Child of the Enemy. She also incorporates her own reminiscences of growing up in postwar Germany, mapping interlaced memories and histories as they interact in psychic life and cultural memory. Schwab concludes with a bracing look at issues of responsibility, reparation, and forgiveness across the victim/perpetrator divide.
