    Well, in the article at
    they mention a 6 March 1997 Washington post article which discusses the
    Army manuals. Here is the short description from Washington Post:
    >Army's Project X Had Wider Audience
    >Clandestine Operations Training Manuals Not Restricted to Americas
    >By Dana Priest
    >Washington Post Staff Writer
    >Thursday, March 6, 1997 ; Page A01
    >Section: A Section
    >Article ID: 9703060093 -- 1576 words
    >Until the early 1980s, the U.S. military ran an intelligence training
    >program in Latin America and elsewhere using manuals that taught
    >foreign officers to offer bounties for captured or killed insurgents,
    >spy on nonviolent political opponents, kidnap rebels' family members
    >and blackmail unwanted informants, according to recently declassified
    >Army and Defense Department documents.
