ComBat CounterIntelligence Training Film..
The Counter Intelligence Corps (CIC) was a World War II and early Cold War intelligence agency within the United States Army.. Its role was taken over by the U.S. Army Intelligence Corps in 1961 and, in 1967, by the U.S. Army Intelligence Agency. Its functions are now performed by the United States Army Intelligence and Security Command and by counterintelligence agents assigned to Army tactical units.. The National Counter Intelligence Corps Association (NCICA), a veterans' association, was established in the years immediately following World War II by Military Intelligence agents who had served in every area of military and domestic operations..

As Volume 7 of The History of the Counter Intelligence Corps explains: "Espionage and sabotage, being enemy directed, involved more than one person.. Usually there were a number in the chain extending from the agent in the United States back through cutouts and couriers to the enemy country.. This inevitably involved civilians with military suspects and the case became connected with the FBI..CIC units were also involved in providing security for the Manhattan Project, including duty as couriers of fissionable bomb materials from Los Alamos, New Mexico to Tinian.. They also operated in 1945 at the United Nations Organizing Conference in San Francisco, over which Alger Hiss presided as secretary-general..Three years later, when Alger Hiss was accused of being a Communist and filed a libel suit against his accuser, his lawyers unwittingly hired an undercover CIC Special Agent as their Chief Investigator to help prepare his libel suit...

They were also involved in providing security for military installations and staging areas, located enemy agents, and acted to counter stay-behind networks.. They also provided training to combat units in security, censorship, the seizure of documents, and the dangers of booby traps.. In some cases CIC agents such as Henry Kissinger found themselves acting as the de facto military government on the occupation of large towns before the arrival of Allied Military Government for Occupied Territories (AMGOT) officers..While serving in the U.S. Army in the 1960s, Christopher H. Pyle learned that “Army intelligence had 1500 plain clothes agents watching every demonstration of 20 people or more throughout the United States..” Pyle’s disclosures led to Congressional investigations and a crackdown on what was regarded as the Army’s investigative excesses..One of CIC's operations in post-war Europe was the operation of a "rat-line" – a conduit for spiriting informants and defectors out of the Soviet Zones of Occupation to safety in South America, via Italy, with false identities paid for by CIC..A Department of Justice investigation also uncovered the CIC's dealings with Father Krunoslav Draganović, a Croatian cleric based in Rome, who while working for CIC, also operated his own clandestine rat-line to transport Ustaše war criminals to Latin America..The proliferation of intelligence agencies had meant duplication of effort and disputes over responsibility, so in 1961 the CIC ceased to exist as an independent organization, as it was rolled into the Army's new Military Intelligence Branch..

Selectivity.. They tend to pick and choose opponents carefully, either applying the hit-and-run approach against mere commentators supportive of opponents, or focusing heavier attacks on key opponents who are known to directly address issues.. Should a commentator become argumentative with any success, the focus will shift to include the commentator as well..Teamwork..They tend to OPerate in self-congratulatory and complementary packs or teams.; Of course, this can happen naturally in any public forum, but there will likely be an ongoing pattern of frequent exchanges of this sort where professionals are involved.. Sometimes one of the players will infiltrate the opponent camp to become a source for straw man or other tactics designed to dilute opponent presentation strength..In ancient Egypt when a body was mummified, its brain was removed through one of its nostrils..but did you know that in order to deter flies from landing on him the Pharaoh always kept several naked slaves nearby whose bodies were smeared with honey...Darth will slay with his wings whosoever disturbs the peace of Pharaoh... you are all EQually worthless.. And my orders are to weed out all non-hackers who do not pack the gear to serve in my beloved Corps.. Do you maggots understand that?..
