Brands, H.W., Jr. Cold Warriors: Eisenhower's Generation and American Foreign Policy. Contemporary American History Series. New York: Columbia University Press, 1988. ISBN: 0231065264.

Grant, Millennium: Journal of International Studies 17.3 (Dec. 1988), calls this work "witty, perseptive and highly readable." The chapters on C.D. Jackson and Harold Stassen "are especially useful." However, the brevity of these and other chapters "is ultimately too constraining for a serious analysis of U.S. foreign policy in the 1950s." For Doenecke, JAH 76.1 (1989), the author offers a "well-written narrative" and "finely crafted portraits of leading [Eisenhower] administration figures."

Surveillant 3.4/5 comments that The Man in the Mirror "reduces too much the role of John André, possibly to keep our focus on Arnold, but little else appears deficient in this crisp, compelling portrait.... Highly recommended."

Brandwein, David S. "Confessions of a Former USIB Committee Chairman." Studies in Intelligence 18, no. 2 (Summer 1974): 43-50.

The author describes "the inner workings of two USIB committeess from the vantage point of the chairman -- how they are staffed, what things they do, how they do them, and how they might be improved.." He acknowledges the subjective nature of his observations.


Brandwein, David S. "Interaction in Weapons R&D." Studies in Intelligence 12, no. 1 (Winter 1968): 13-20.

The author deals with "the difficulties in generating satisfactory intelligence hypotheses on the basis of thin data, validating them by independent checkout on the part of the several analytic groups involved, and then feeding them back to the R&D community, difficulties which make the process less than ideally effective."


Brandwein, David S. "The SS-8 Controversy." Studies in Intelligence 13, no. 3 (Summer 1969): 27-35.

The author takes the reader through some of the struggle within the Intelligence Community in the early 1960s to define the size of a new Soviet missile.


Brandwein, David S. "Telemetry Analysis." Studies in Intelligence 8, no. 4 (Fall 1964): 21-29.

There are two key problems in monitoring Soviet telemetry: "First, the intercept usually covers only the time when the missile is above the horizon of the place of intercept, and second, we have neither a key to the channel assignments nor a list of calibrations." This article is about overcoming the second obstacle.

Clark comment: This article and the book within which it is contained remain suspect as a Soviet or East German disinformation effort.


Branigin, William. "U.S. Classified Data Placed Milosevic in Chain of Command." Washington Post, 28 May 1999, A30.

According to U.S. officials on 27 May 1999, U.S. intelligence information was turned over to the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia in The Hague prior to the indicting of Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic and four of his top aides for crimes against the ethnic Albanian population of Kosovo. The information was "collected by the Interagency Balkan Task Force, an intelligence unit housed at the CIA" that includes DIA, NSA, and INR representatives. "Among the material is overhead imagery from satellites or U.S. reconnaissance planes and other unspecified information from 'national technical means,' a rubric that includes electronic intercepts by intelligence-gathering equipment carried aboard satellites or planes such as the RC-135 'Rivet Joint' surveillance aircraft."


Branigin, William, and Dan Eggen. "Rice Defends Bush Efforts to Combat Terrorism; National Security Adviser Acknowledges Preparations Were Insufficient." Washington Post, 8 Apr. 2004. []

On 8 April 2004, national security adviser Condoleezza Rice "delivered a strong defense of the Bush administration's efforts to combat terrorism" to the commission investigating the 9/11 terrorist attacks. But she also "acknowledged that the preparations of several administrations of both parties were insufficient." In her opening statement, "Rice told the 10-member panel that warnings about possible terrorist attacks before Sept. 11 were 'frustratingly vague' and 'there was no silver bullet that could have prevented the 9/11 attacks.'"
