North Bergen, NJ -- As a radio talk show host, I receive a whole slew of e-mail
and regular mail about virtually every issue under the sun. Much of it gets
deleted or thrown away. Some of it results in stories appearing on my web site
or being discussed on my show. Every once in awhile, something akin to a
bombshell arrives and yesterday, July 18, 2007 was one such day.

I came into possession of portions of a U.S. military plan which was allegedly
classified "Top Secret." This put me in a bind because without having a security
clearance myself, having something which is Classified is unlawful. Reading such
a document is also unlawful and revealing it to the public is definitely
unlawful. So, I thought about it. I decided screw it, I'm going to read it.

As I read the document, my blood ran cold. Chills ran up my spine. The hair on
the back of my neck stood up. My gut started churning. This document is an
operational plan to use U.S. military troops against U.S. Citizens!

The plan says "A perceived serious potential of dissident American groups rising
up against constituted authority has been clearly identified by
counter-intelligence agencies. [Underlining mine]

The plan goes on to say why people are clearly thinking of rising up and
throwing-off our federal government by saying "The stated cause for such an
uprising appear to be growing dissatisfaction with the course and conduct of the
war in Iraq, the chronic inability of Congress to deal with various pressing
issues and the perception of widespread corruption and indifference to public

Sounds accurate to me. In fact, it describes perfectly reasonable justification
for the America people to utilize our original right of self-defense against
such a government or for us to impose reform!

Most stunning about the plan is that it talks about political reform and offers
an unbelievably out-of-touch, completely un-American observation: "Reform may be
necessary, but reform is a matter for the state . . . . ."

A matter for the state? We The People ARE the state. We The People decide on
reform. For this U.S. military plan to assert "Reform may be necessary, but
reform is a matter for the state" is like reading something out of the old
Soviet Union! What planet are these people on?

The truly chilling parts of this plan involve the use of "Informant nets" of
Americans literally spying on their fellow citizens and "Block Control" where
the plan calls for "trusted resident reports on the activities of people in
their neighborhoods." Folks, this is what Fidel Castro does in Communist Cuba!

As you read the details below, remember this: This plan has been drawn up by OUR
military. The military WE hired, WE train, WE equip, WE feed, WE clothe, WE
house. It is an OUTRAGE that anyone in our military would DARE to even create
such plan, nevermind try to implement it!

A Blunt warning to our Government and our Military:

In our nation of 300 million people, there are at least 95 million lawful gun
owners. Those 95 million guns owners lawfully possess 212 million firearms.

Even if the government recalled ALL military members from around the entire
world, they would have a force of only about two million.

95 million gun owners versus 2 million troops. I think we all know how this
would turn out: the government would be slaughtered.

In fact, if only ten percent of the 95 million gun owners had guts enough to
fight, we would still outnumber the military almost 3:1.

We The People of the United States aren't the least bit worried about government
tanks and planes, those tools are useless in guerilla warfare. Want proof? Iraq!
The U.S. government is getting its ass kicked over there. Government wouldn't
last a week if they tried implementing this plan here.

Government would do well to remember they exist at the whim and behest of the
American people. Government in this land exists to serve us as we direct.

The power government wields belongs to The People. We The People merely LEND
part of our power to government and we have the absolute right to take that
power back at any time we deem appropriate. In fact, the founding fathers made
clear we can take it back in any MANNER we deem appropriate! That's why they
gave us the Second Amendment!

If the U.S. government or military dares attempt to implement this plan, they
should expect to be killed.

----------------- PRECIS OF THE PLAN ---------------------

Classification: Top Secret-Noforn as of 1 June 2007

Distribution Restriction: Distribution authorized to the DOD and DOD contractors
only to maintain operations security. This determination was made on 1 June
2007. Other requests for this document must be referred to (redacted)

Destruction Notice: Destroy by any method that will prevent disclosure of
contents or reconstruction of the document. .

This publication uses the term insurgent to describe those taking part in any
activity designed to undermine or to overthrow the established authorities

Counterinsurgency is those military, paramilitary, political, economic,
psychological, and civic actions taken by a government to defeat insurgency (JP
1-02). It is an offensive approach involving all elements of national power; it
can take place across the range of operations and spectrum of conflict

In dealing with the local populace, the primary aims must be to:

·Protect the population.

·Establish local political institutions.

·Reinforce local governments.

·Eliminate insurgent capabilities.

·Exploit information from local sources.

An insurgency is organized movement aimed at the overthrow of a constituted
government through use of subversion and armed conflict (JP 1-02). It is a
protracted politico-military struggle designed to weaken government control and
legitimacy while increasing insurgent control. Political power is the central
issue in an insurgency.

An insurgent organization normally consists of four elements:


Combatants (main forces, regional forces, local forces).

Cadre (local political leaders that are also called the militants).

Mass base (the bulk of the membership).

The support of the people, passive or active then, is the center of gravity. It
must be gained in whatever proportion is necessary to sustain the insurgent
movement (or, contrariwise, to defeat it). As in any political campaign, all
levels of support are relative.

Insurgent movements begin as "fire in the minds of men." Insurgent leaders
commit themselves to building a new world. They construct the organization to
carry through this desire. Generally, popular grievances become insurgent causes
when interpreted and shaped by the insurgent leadership. The insurgency grows if
the cadre that is local insurgent leaders and representatives can establish a
link between the insurgent movement and the desire for solutions to grievances
sought by the local population

Insurgent leaders will exploit opportunities created by government security
force actions. The behavior of security forces is critical. Lack of security
force discipline leads to alienation, and security force abuse of the populace
is a very effective insurgent recruiting tool. Consequently, specific insurgent
tactical actions are often planned to frequently elicit overreaction from
security force individuals and units.

Insurgencies are dynamic political movements, resulting from real or perceived
grievance or neglect that leads to alienation from an established government.

A successful counterinsurgency will result in the neutralization by the state of
the insurgency and its effort to form a counterstate. While many abortive
insurgencies are defeated by military and police actions alone, if an insurgency
has tapped into serious grievances and has mobilized a significant portion of
the population, simply returning to the status quo may not be an option. Reform
may be necessary, but reform is a matter for the state, using all of its human
and material resources. Security forces are only one such resource. The response
must be multifaceted and coordinated, yet states typically charge their security
forces with "waging counterinsurgency." This the security forces cannot do

These imperatives are-

· Facilitate establishment or reestablishment of a 'legitimate government'.

· Counterinsurgency requires perseverance.

· Foster popular support for the incumbent US government.

· Prepare to perform functions and conduct operations that are outside normal
scope of training.

· Coordinate with US governmental departments and agencies, and with vital
non-governmental, agencies.

Urban operations.

· Protection of government facilities.

· Protection of infrastructure.

· Protection of commercial enterprises vital to the HN economy.

· Protection of cultural facilities.

· Prevention of looting.

· Military police functions.

· Close interaction with civilians.

· Assistance with reconstruction projects.

· Securing the national borders.

· Training or retraining a national military police and security force.

Establishing and maintaining local government credibility.

· Contributing local government is both tangible and psychological. Local
security forces must reinforce and be integrated into the plan at every stage.

· Facilitate and use information and intelligence obtained from local sources to
gain access to the insurgent's economic and social base of support, order of
battle, tactics, techniques, and procedures.

Army forces help local pro-government police, paramilitary, and military forces
perform counterinsurgency, area security, or local security operations. They
advise and assist in finding, dispersing, capturing, and destroying the
insurgent force.

US forces may conduct offensive operations to disrupt and destroy insurgent
combat formations. These operations prevent the insurgents from attacking
government-controlled areas.

There are many organizations and extensive resources available to aid
counterinsurgent forces.

Commanders should not overlook the aid these organizations may provide. All
forces assigned an AO or function should determine which departments and
agencies are assisting in that AO and coordinate actions so that there is no
duplication of effort. Such departments,

councils and agencies include-

· National Security Council.

· Department of Defense.

· Department of State.

· Department of Justice.

· Department of the Treasury.

· Department of Homeland Security.

· Department of Agriculture.

· Department of Commerce.

· Central Intelligence Agency.

· Department of Transportation

Various governmental departments directly administer or support other
governmental agencies. Examples of these US agencies are-

· The US Coast Guard (under Department of Homeland Security).

· The Federal Bureau of Investigation (under Department of Justice).

· Immigration Customs Enforcement (under Department of Homeland Security).

· Federal Communications Commission

. The proper application of force is a critical component to any successful
counterinsurgency operation. In a counterinsurgency, the center of gravity is
public support. In order to defeat an insurgent force, US forces must be able to
separate insurgents from the population. At the same time, US forces must
conduct themselves in a manner that enables them to maintain popular domestic
support. Excessive or indiscriminate use of force is likely to alienate the
local populace, thereby increasing support for insurgent forces. Insufficient
use of force results in increased risks to US forces and perceived weaknesses
that can jeopardize the mission by emboldening insurgents and undermining
domestic popular support. Achieving the appropriate balance requires a thorough
understanding of the nature and causes of the insurgency, the end state, and the
military's role in a counterinsurgency operation. Nevertheless, US forces always
retain the right to use necessary and proportional force for
individual and unit self-defense in response to a hostile act or demonstrated
hostile intent.

The media, print and broadcast (radio, television and the Internet), play a
vital role in societies involved in a counterinsurgency. Members of the media
have a significant influence and shaping impact on political direction, national
security objectives, and policy and national will. The media is a factor in
military operations. It is their right and obligation to report to their
respective audiences on the use of military force. They demand logistic support
and access to military operations while refusing to be controlled. Their desire
for immediate footage and on-the-spot coverage of events, and the increasing
contact with units and Soldiers (for example, with embedded reporters) require
commanders and public affairs officers to provide guidance to leaders and
Soldiers on media relations. However, military planners must provide and enforce
ground rules to the media to ensure operations security. Public affairs offices
plan for daily briefings and a special briefing after each si
gnificant event because the media affect and influence each potential target
audience external and internal to the AO. Speaking with the media in a
forward-deployed area is an opportunity to explain what our organizations and
efforts have accomplished.

Continuous PSYOP are mounted to-

· Counter the effects of insurgent propaganda.

· Relate controls to the security and well-being of the population.

· Portray a favorable governmental image.

.Control measures must-

· Be authorized by national laws and regulations (counterparts should be trained
not to improvise unauthorized measures).

· Be tailored to fit the situation (apply the minimum force required to achieve
the de-sired result).

· Be supported by effective local intelligence.

· Be instituted in as wide an area as possible to prevent bypass or evasion.

· Be supported by good communications.

· Be enforceable.

· Be lifted as the need diminishes.

· Be compatible, where possible, with local customs and traditions.

· Establish and maintain credibility of local government.

A control program may be developed in five phases:

· Securing and defending the area internally and externally.

· Organizing for law enforcement.

· Executing cordon and search operations.

· Screening and documenting the population (performing a detailed census).

· Performing public administration, to include resource control.

Support to the judiciary may be limited to providing security to the existing
courts or may lead to more comprehensive actions to build local, regional, and
national courts and the required support apparatus. To avoid overcrowding in
police jails, the courts must have an efficient and timely magistrate
capability, ideally co-located with police stations and police jails, to review
cases for trial.

Cordon and search is a technique used by military and police forces in both
urban and rural environments. It is frequently used by counterinsurgency forces
conducting a population and resource control mission against small centers of
population or subdivisions of a larger community. To be effective, cordon and
search operations must have sufficient forces to effectively cordon off and
thoroughly search target areas, to include subsurface areas.

PSYOP, civil affairs, and specialist interrogation teams should augment cordon
and search orces to increase the effectiveness of operation
