The basic key to all operational planning is the realization that the strength of our novewont is going to be iron within the target country rather than being in the nature of an "invasion" from without. Certain shock troops will be utilized; however, mainlysychological lector, consoliaation center, and aid to logistical support.

The reasoning behind the tactical planning is the realization that AuAM is the,key area of resistance.or support to our movement. Comparatively trained, well-equipped, well organized troops andivil arc centered here, in addition to its geographical, topographical, and psychologies! position.

There aro nine key points of resistance withust cope: Adam, bond, Connor, Doc, hddle. Prank, Goss, Hank, Ike. Their significance and strength and capabilities of opposition will be brought out in discussion on each

by an inner organization, organizedlocal coa.iar.der iron his own personnel plusthrough Psychological Warfare persuasion.

by shock troops launched fromoutside the target country with definitebeing performedimilar innermentioned. above.

e. An inner organization capeble of neutralizing and nullifying the positive reactioney point of esistance until success at other key areas is attained and consolidated; then inner support missions to the aid of the consolidated forces.

d. Blocking strong resistance points from* the entire action by organizing partisan groups in strategic areas and by strategic placement of specially trained sab-teans.

hb overt move will be made until KUBARK self-assurance of capability of control. by one of tho first three methods is attained.

Defected army personnel capable of influencing units will be the main source of Psychological warfare for defections within the key areas of resistance to produce organized assets forL ^activities.

6*. Defected and influenced and sympathetic civilian organizations will be utilized in support functions.

All planning will be based on the aim to allow defection, allow capitulation and sympathetic action before enc during activities.

Preparations will slant touaras the capability to implement the three plans:

Preparation for and seizure oftarget country.

BAKES: Consolioation and prevention

C. Plan CHARLIE: Contingency plans for seizure of control to include alternate- and emergency actions at each key area.
