A happy COINcidence
by Anthony Fenton
Just yesterday I went searching in vain for the Canadian Counterinsurgency Operations manual that Wikileaks released last August. Fortunately, Public Intelligence has uploaded a copy of said manual to their website.
For good measure, I've uploaded their copy to the Web of Democracy's 'Declassified' section, which you can download (.pdf) here.
For reasons that the Department of Defence has declined to make clear, they still haven't made it a public document (unlike their U.S. counterparts).
Last March, a Canadian Army Communications Officer from Army Public Affairs told me in an e-mail, "The final version of the manual remains unclassified and will be available for public access in its entirety."
