paramilitary, known as PP or KUCAGE, operations differ from those of PI or CI
because they are action rather than collection activities.
operations should be invisible so that the target will be unaware of them.
Action operations, on the other
hand, always produce a visible effect.
PP operations are, of course,
risky because they nearly always mean intervention in the affairs of another

This is in contrast to collection
operations, for if these are discovered foreign politicians are often prepared
to turn a blind eye - they are
a traditional part of every nation's intelligence activity.
cardinal rule in planning all PP operations is 'plausible denial', only
possible if care has been taken in the first place to ensure that someone other
than the US government can be made to take the blame.
PP programs are
to be found in almost every CIA station and emphasis on the kinds of PP
operations will depend very much on local conditions.
warfare includes propaganda (also known simply as 'media'), work in youth and
student organizations, work in labor organizations (trade unions, etc.), work
in professional and cultural groups and in political parties.
Paramilitary operations include infiltration into denied areas,
economic warfare, personal
harassment, air and maritime support,
weaponry, training and
support for small armies.
The vehicles for grey and
black propaganda may be unaware of their CIA or US government sponsorship.
This is partly so that it can be more effective and partly to keep down

Equally, meetings between the two kinds of officer will be

Problems of communist influence in one country can be made
to appear of international concern in others under the rubric of 'a threat to
one is a threat to all'.
For example, the CIA station in Caracas can
cable information on a secret communist plot in Venezuela to the Bogota station
which can 'surface' through a local propaganda agent with attribution to an
unidentified Venezuelan government official.
The information can then
be picked up from the Colombian press and relayed to CTA stations in Quito,
Lima, La Paz, Santiago and Brazil.
A few days later editorials begin to
appear in the newspapers of these places and pressure mounts on the Venezuelan
government to take repressive action against communists.
obviously hosts of other uses to which propaganda, both black and grey, can be
put, using books,
wall-painting, handbills, decals,
religious sermons and
political speeches as
well as the daily press.
In countries where
handbills or wall-painting are important media, stations are expected to
maintain clandestine printing and distribution facilities as well as teams of
agents who paint slogans on walls.
In order to obtain political
intelligence as well as to develop relationships with potential
political-action agents, most stations have continuing programs for cultivating
local politicians from opposition as well as from government
Making acquaintances in local politics is not usually difficult
because CTA officers under diplomatic cover in embassies have natural access to
their targets through cocktail parties, receptions, clubs and other mechanisms
that bring them together with people of interest.
Department Foreign Service Officers and Ambassadors as well may also facilitate
the expansion of station political contacts through arranging introductions.
When a local political contact is assessed favorably for station goals,
security clearance and operational approval is obtained from headquarters, and
the station officer in contact with the target begins to provide financial
support for political campaigns or for the promotion of the target's political
group or party.
The target will use some of the money for personal
expenses thereby developing a
dependency on the station as a source of income.
Eventually, if all
goes well, the local politician will report confidential information on his own
party and on his government, if he has a government post, and he will respond
to reasonable station direction regarding the communist question.

As in the case of politicians, most Agency stations have a
continual program for the development of local military leaders, both for the
collection of intelligence and for possible use in political action.
Politicians working for the Agency are expected to take an active part
in working for expulsion of 'undesirables'.
Where the Soviet Union tries to extend
its diplomatic or commercial activities, politicians are expected to use
influence to oppose such moves.
They are also expected to take a
hard line against their own nationals engaged in left-wing or communist

not just a matter of financing and guiding local politicians.
In situations regarded as dangerous to the US,
the Agency will conduct national election operations though the medium of an
entire political party.
It will finance candidates who are both
'witting' and 'unwitting'.
Such multi-million-dollar operations may
begin a year or more before an election is due and will include massive
propaganda and public-relations campaigns, the building of numerous front
organizations and funding mechanisms (often resident US businessmen), regular
polls of voters, the formation of 'goon-squads' to intimidate the opposition,
and the staging of provocations and the circulation of rumors designed to
discredit undesirable candidates.
Funds are also available for
buying votes and vote counters as well.
If a situation can be more
effectively retrieved for US interests by unconstitutional methods or by coup
d'etat, that too may be attempted.
Although the Agency usually plays the
anti-communist card in order to foster a coup, gold bars and sacks of currency
are often equally effective.
In some cases a timely bombing by a
station agent, followed by mass demonstrations and finally by intervention by
military leaders in the name of the restoration of order and national unity, is
a useful course.
Agency political operations were largely responsible
for coups after this pattern
in Iran in 1953 and in the Sudan in 1958.

propaganda, labour, youth, student and other mass organizations under CIA
control to restrict trade by a friendly country of items needed in the target

products voluntarily, but local station political-action assets are usually
more effective for this purpose.
