Anthropological plagiarism in the U.S. Army and Marine Corps new Counterinsurgency Field Manual (No. 3-24)???

I got an email alert on David Price's article in www.CounterPunch.com about David Price's expose on possible plagiarism in the U.S. Army and Marine Corps' new Counterinsurgency Field Manual (No. 3-24).

The article is very revealing. On top of the issues of ethics in using anthropological methods in counter-insurgency, war, or violence (however you want to term the Iraq and Afghanistan occupations), who would have thought plagiarism would be an issue?
