The Freedom Fighter's Manual (CIA pamphlet dropped over Nicaragua in 1983)
The Freedom Fighter's Manual is the title of a fifteen-page propaganda booklet that was manufactured by the United States Central Intelligence Agency and airdropped over Nicaragua in 1983, with the stated goal of providing a "Practical guide to liberating Nicaragua from oppression and misery by paralyzing the military-industrial complex of the traitorous marxist state". The manual explains several methods by which the average citizen could cause civil disorder. The airdrops began after the Sandinista National Liberation Front, which had overthrown the former Nicaraguan leader, Anastasio Somoza in 1979, and had ties to the Soviet Union and Cuba, began to fund a similar revolutionary group in El Salvador. A Contra fighter gave the manual to a U.S. reporter in Honduras in 1984. via Wikipedia You can download most of the pamphlet at the bottom of this page.
