CHAPTER XV

                       THE ARMED FORCES (SEAAF)


     In criminal cases, the identity and the capture of the person is the
main objective. In espionage cases the identity of the person is only the
first step. The most important thing is the knowledge of his contacts,
objectives, information sources and communication methods. The capture and
public news of the incident must be the last resource used by the counter
intelligence agencies. It is better to identify these persons, what they are
doing, and stop the movement of their efforts than to expose them to the
public and then try to find out who are their successors.


     A.    Receiving the source.

     1.    The counter intelligence agent must be professional and courteous
with the source.

     2.    Identify yourself and show your badge.

     3.    Obtain identification facts about the source.

NOTE:  Establish harmony, be friendly and alert, this will help the source to
feel confident. Once the harmony has been established with the source, you
must be able to hold this confidence during the interview.

     4.    Determine the purpose and intention of the source.

     a.    An unscheduled source is a person who comes to a counter
intelligence agency to offer information he believes is of interest to
military intelligence.
     b.    The information the source provides must fall within the
intentions of SEAAF.
