A Navy training document asks, âAnarchists, socialists and neo-nazis represent which terrorist ideological category?â

A Navy counterterrorism training document obtained exclusively by The Intercept appears to conflate socialists with terrorists and lists the left-wing ideology alongside âneo-nazis.â
A section of the training document subtitled âStudy Questionsâ includes the following: âAnarchists, socialists and neo-nazis represent which terrorist ideological category?â
The correct answer is âpolitical terrorists,â a military source briefed on the training told me. The document, titled âIntroduction to Terrorism/Terrorist Operations,â is part of a longer training manual recently disseminated by the Naval Education Training and Commandâs Navy Tactical Training Center in conjunction with the Center for Security Forces. The training is designed for masters-at-arms, the Navyâs internal police, the military source said.
