Doel, Ronald E., and Allan A. Needell. "Science, Scientists, and the CIA: Balancing International Ideals, National Needs, and Professional Opportunities." Intelligence and National Security 12, no. 1 (Jan. 1997): 59-81.

The authors judge the early post-World War II development of scientific intelligence in the CIA to have been "at best a mixed success." Nonetheless, there were successes, and the groundwork was laid for the later consolidation of scientific resources in the Directorate of Science and Technology.

Peake, Studies 54.3 (Sep. 2010) and Intelligencer 18.1 (Fall-Winter 2010), finds that Schellenberg's "controversial career is examined here by a skillful historian." The work is documented with "recently released documents from allied archives. The German records remain classified. Thus the final version of Walter Schellenberg's career is still to be written."

For Fischer, IJI&C 24.3 (Fall 2011). this is "a thoroughly researched and definitive biography." McKay, JIH 9.1 & 2 (Summer 2010), finds this an "important and readable" book. The author provides "a scholarly account[,] based on meticulous archival studies.... Although Doerries has many interesting things to say about espionage matters..., his main focus of interest ... is Schellenberg's contact work in Switzerland and Sweden." This is a "stimulating and thought-provoking study."

2. ed. Hitler’s Last Chief of Foreign Intelligence: Allied Interrogations of Walter Schellenberg. London and Portland, OR: Frank Cass, 2003.

According to Erskine, JIH 3.2, much of this book "consists of a transcript of the final Allied interrogation report on Schellenberg. While the report is a fascinating document in itself, it greatly benefits from an admirable introduction by Professor Reinhard R. Doerries.... Doerries has clearly devoted a great deal of time and care to this book, and has done a fine job as editor. Hitler’s Last Chief of Foreign Intelligence is essential reading for everyone interested in Schellenberg, German intelligence in the Second World War, or the inner workings of the Third Reich."

Doherty, Carroll J. "Hill Clears Modest Overhaul of Spy Organizations." Congressional Quarterly Weekly Report, 28 Sep. 1996, 2769.

On 25 September 1996, the House and Senate adopted the conference report on the Fiscal Year 1997 intelligence authorization bill. The legislation authorizes "a 2.3 percent increase in funding over President Clinton's budget and a 4.2 percent increase over fiscal 1996." The overall budget for intelligence activities "is believed to total about $30 billion a year."

Efforts by the chairmen of the intelligence committees -- Representative Larry Combest (R-TX) and Senator Arlen Spector (R-PA) -- to expand the power of the DCI were scaled back "in the face of intense opposition from the Pentagon and its congressional allies."

The bill establishes the new position of deputy director for community management, as well as three assistant directors to oversee collection, analysis, and administration; all of these new positions would require Senate confirmation. The Senate-passed provision requiring the President to make public the total amount spent annually on intelligence was dropped from the final bill.

Earlier reports on budget authorization and intelligence reform activities can be found in CQWR at pages 2681 (Senate passage), 2393 (Background), 2065 (House National Security Committee action), 1609 (Senate Armed Services Committee action), 1477 (House action), 1317 (HPSCI action), and 1181 (SSCI action).

Doherty, Carroll J. "Spy Agency Overhaul Drive Loses Momentum." Congressional Quarterly Weekly Report, 24 Aug. 1996, 2393.

Despite the conclusion by blue-ribbon commissions and leaders of the House and Senate intelligence committees that "the key to reforming the fragmented intelligence bureaucracy was for the Pentagon to cede some of its authority over spy programs to a strengthened" CIA, "proposals to achieve that goal appear doomed." In fact, DoD "is likely to gain control over a new agency assigned to manage all imagery and mapping operations, including some programs currently run by the CIA."


Doherty, Carroll J. "On Hill, Latest CIA Uproar Revives Issue of Trust." Congressional Quarterly Weekly Report, 15 Apr. 1995, 1073.

On 5 April 1995, the Senate intelligence committee opened hearings on the CIA's activities in Guatemala. "Republicans and Democrats excoriated the CIA for withholding for three years information that a paid informant had been implicated in the 1990 murder of American innkeeper Michael DeVine."
