Conference room assassination technique

(2) Opens fire on first subject to react. Swings across group toward center of mass. Times burst to empty magazine at end of swing.

(1) Covers group to prevent individual dangerous reactions, if necessary, fires individual bursts of 3 rounds.
From "A Study of Assassination," a declassified CIA manual.


  1. So they needed a diagram for "shoot everyone in the room" ?

  2. Why would it surprise anyone that there are procedure and best practice manuals for assassination? All organizations aim to get better at what they do, regardless of legality or moral focus. This is the banality of evil. Get better at whatever you're doing, but never question whether you should be doing it.

  3. I liked this quote:

    "Murder is not morally justifiable. Self-defense may be argued if the victim has knowledge which may destroy the resistance organization if divulged. Assassination of persons responsible for atrocities or reprisals may be regarded as just punishment. Killing a political leader whose burgeoning career is a clear and present danger to the cause of freedom may be held necessary.

    But assassination can seldom be employed with a clear conscience. Persons who are morally squeamish should not attempt it."

  4. Whoa! I wonder if Amy Bishop had studied this when she opened fire on her collegues here at UA Huntsville a few months ago during a departmental staff meeting.
