"Among the documents found in the training files of Operation PBSUCCESS and declassified by the Agency is a "Study of Assassination." A how-to guide book in the art of political killing, the manual offers detailed descriptions of the procedures, instruments, and implementation of assassination. "The simplest local tools are often much the most efficient means of assassination," counsels the study. "A hammer, axe, wrench, screw driver, fire poker, kitchen knife, lamp stand, or anything hard, heavy and handy will suffice." For an assassin using "edge weapons," the manual notes in cold clinical terms, "puncture wounds of the body cavity may not be reliable unless the heart is reached....Absolute reliability is obtained by severing the spinal cord in the cervical region." The manual also notes that to provide plausible denial, "no assassination instructions should ever be written or recorded." Murder, the drafters state, "is not morally justifiable," and "persons who are morally squeamish should not attempt it." With a contextual preface by Sokol dated June 2002. Sokol reformatted and put the publication into an ebook format. National Security Archive Electronic Briefing Book No. 4 describes 5 documents connected to Operation PBSUCCESS in Guatemala including the "Study of Assassination." This document, along with several hundred records, were released by the Agency on May 23, 1997 as part of a FOIA request"--Stanford Digital Repository.
"This guide provides an overview of the physical processes that affect oil movement and behavior in the marine environment. Trajectory analysis is most often done using computer models to keep track of complex, interacting processes. Even without a model, you can estimate the time and length scale of an event using the information you'll find here. The guide can help the responder and planner understand physical processes and potential uncertainties as they incorporate trajectory analysis into the response"--Intro.
