Is it possible to contact Jesus James Angleton via seance?

From a 1944 OSS/CIA sabotage manual, ways that you can disrupt an organization: 
Managers and Supervisors: To lower morale and production, be pleasant to inefficient workers; give them undeserved promotions. Discriminate against efficient workers; complain unjustly about their work. 
Employees: Work slowly. Think of ways to increase the number of movements needed to do your job: use a light hammer instead of a heavy one; try to make a small wrench do instead of a big one. 
Organizations and Conferences: When possible, refer all matters to committees, for "further study and consideration." Attempt to make the committees as large and bureaucratic as possible. Hold conferences when there is more critical work to be done. 
Telephone: At office, hotel and local telephone switchboards, delay putting calls through, give out wrong numbers, cut people off “accidentally,” or forget to disconnect them so that the line cannot be used again. 
Transportation: Make train travel as inconvenient as possible for enemy personnel. Issue two tickets for the same seat on a train in order to set up an “interesting” argument.
I think we've been penetrated. Then again, I might be an enemy agent myself.  


  1. this brought a smile to my face. (Also, Angleton probably overestimated the German efficiency. Nazi armament industry was fact an unwieldy bureaucratic mess, squandering enormous potential and resources)

  2. This was too good to not download. On Page 31 the phrase “Act stupid” caught my eye. Oh the possibilities

  3. @CJ: Any federal recommendations about ceramic ducks?
