The Intelligence Role in Counterinsurgency: Proposed Planning Guide in Four Phases of “National Liberation” Wars

Walter Steinmeyer (Theodore Shackley)

This article, originally classified, appeared in Studies in Intelligence Vol. 9, No. 4 (Fall 1965). It appears here now as a continuation of the journal’s contribution to Defense Department-led efforts to mark the 50 years that have passed since the conflict in Vietnam raged. This and earlier articles published from the Studies archive will appear in a forthcoming digital compendium of unclassified or declassified Studies articles related to US intelligence involvement in the conflicts in Southeast Asia. The true name behind the penname used in 1965 is Theodore Shackley, an operations officer who played important roles in Laos and Vietnam and who would eventually rise to the second highest position in CIA’s Directorate of Operations.
