Former Mossad officer Mishka Ben-David has blamed then-Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu for the failed assassination attempt against Hamas political leader Khaled Meshal.

Rafi Eitan, "the legendary Mossad spymaster who handled Jonathan Pollard," may be the "key man for any future coalition in Ehud Olmert's government.... Eitan's new Pensioners Party ... looks to win enough seats in the 120-member Knesset to make it a possible partner with Olmert to form a stable governing majority."

1. "Open Source Info." INSCOM Journal, Jan.-Feb. 1997, 16ff.

2. "Open Source Information Strategy." INSCOM Journal, May-Jun. 1997, 32ff.

The main thrust of these two articles is articulated in the following excerpt: "Intelligence experts must continue exploring ... open source information acquisition and exploitation alternatives, such as the use of commercial vendors, universities and military reservists. The intelligence community should explore simultaneous employment of these resources. These external internal community assets are uniquely capable of handling the information explosion and support a number of intelligence community and military core business areas."

Clark comment: It is instructive that neither article mentions existing Intelligence Community resources for the acquisition and processing of open-source information. The suggestions for enhancing Community access to open sources clearly have been influenced by Robert D. Steele (see below) of Open Source Solutions, Inc., whose assistance is recognized at the conclusion of the second article. Although I have nothing but respect for Mr. Steele's entrepreneurial spirit and acumen, he is not the first person to discover the value of open-source material (the predecessor organization of the CIA's Foreign Broadcast Information Service -- now, the DNI's Open Source Center -- predates World War II). Whether intelligence decisionmakers should move away from long-established and cost-effective governmental open-source collection and management resources toward private-sector-generated materials is worthy of some debate.

Divine, The Cuban Missile Crisis (1988), p. 92, refers to this work as a "right-wing criticism of [President] Kennedy's handling of the crisis."

Petersen identifies Daniloff as a "U.S. correspondent detained in the USSR." Surveillant 1.1 calls the book a "good account of the squealing that results when a smug and fragile journalist gets his toe caught in the door of cold-war espionage."


Dank, Milton. The French Against the French: Collaboration and Resistance. hiladelphia, PA: Lippincott, 1974. London: Cassell, 1978.

Kirkus Review (1974): The author "shows that 'collaboration' meant anything from minimal cooperation with the bosch to exultation at the prospect of France integrated into Germany's New Order. Similarly, the Resistance was never one and indivisible.... Insofar as they were eventually united into an effective sabotage network, it was Jean Moulin, the erstwhile prefect of Chartres, dropped into the Vichy zone with a half million francs and a mission, who was to perform this near-impossible task."

Dao, James. "China's Shadowing Had Annoyed U.S." New York Times, 2 Apr. 2001. [http://www.nytimes.com]

Senior Pentagon officials said on 1 April 2001 that "Chinese fighter jets have flown dangerously close" to U.S. "reconnaissance planes over the South China Sea several times in recent months, prompting complaints from American officials to the Chinese." The EP-3e Aries II turboprop aircraft "involved in the latest incident was a sophisticated, long-range maritime surveillance plane used to monitor the activities of ships, submarines and aircraft and also capable of intercepting and interpreting electronic signals from military units on land.... The Navy aircraft was part of a squadron based on Whidbey Island, Wash., but it began its mission on [31 March 2001] from Kadena air base on Okinawa, about 1,000 miles from Hainan."


Dao, James. "Rumsfeld Plan Skirts Call for Stationing Arms in Space." New York Times, 9 May 2001. [http://www.nytimes.com]

On 8 May 2001, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld announced a plan to consolidate "a number of military space programs including spy satellite operations under the Air Force. He also said he will create a new position filled by a four-star Air Force general who will serve as the Pentagon's chief advocate for space programs."

There are "abundant incidents of deception found throughout the Official Records, as well as memoirs, letters and even war literature. A sampling of the ruses adopted by Union forces is presented here."

2. "Hoodwinked During America's Civl War: Confederate Military Deception." Civil War Times, Jun. 2006. [http://www.historynet.com/magazines/civil_war_times/3446521.html]

While the Union managed "to pull off" its "fair share," the Confederates "were responsible for the majority of the hoaxes that were perpetrated during the Civil War.... Desperately lacking in both men and materiel, Rebel commanders were often forced to resort to correspondingly desperate measures, such as deception, in order to mask or offset those deficiencies." Magruder, Beauregard, Forrest, and Lee are singled out.
