Dooley, John F. "1929–1931: A Transition Period in U.S. Cryptologic History." Cryptologia 37, no. 1 (2013): 84-98.

Abstract: "The years 1929 through 1931 were among the most turbulent in American cryptology. During this period, the joint War and State Department Cipher Bureau of Herbert Yardley was closed. The Army created the Signal Intelligence Service under William Friedman. Finally, the Army and Navy began their first tentative steps towards inter-service cooperation. This article examines these events in detail and also takes a look at the relationship between Yardley and Friedman."


Dooley, John F. "Was Herbert O. Yardley a Traitor?" Cryptologia 35, no. 1 (Jan. 2011): 1-15.

The author refutes Farago's accusation that Yardley sold the Japanese "decrypted Japanese diplomatic messages and the techniques used in their solution." Dooley's conclusion that "[t]here does not seem to be any hard evidence that [Yardley] was a traitor" is concurred in by David Kahn, "Letter to the Editor," Cryptologia 35, no. 2 (Apr. 2011): 109. On the other hand, Stephan Budiansky, "Letter to the Editor," Cryptologia 35, no. 3 (Jul. 2011): 199-202, suggests that there is "no slam-dunk exoneration of Yardley and it is well within the the realm of the possible" that the Sakuma memo "was reporting no more than the literal truth."


Doorey, Timothy J. [CAPT/USN] "Intelligence Secrecy and Transparency: Finding the Proper Balance from the War of Independence to the War on Terror." Strategic Insights 6, no. 3 (May 2007). []

"Americans have always been wary of professional intelligence services insisting that their activities remain secret.... Such secrecy seems at odds with the America’s democratic principles, specifically the need for openness and transparency in government affairs.... [T]he record of effective congressional oversight of the U.S. IC has been brief and uneven at best.... Yet cooperation between the executive and legislative branches is possible and remains necessary if we are to build and maintain the intelligence capabilities this nation desperately needs and deserves."

Dorando, Peter J. "For College Courses in Intelligence." Studies in Intelligence 4, no. 3 (Summer 1960): A15-A19.

Some years (decades) would pass before this author's wish for serious academic treatment of intelligence, beginning with a basic course of study, would be realized. Nevertheless, the reasons for doing so that the author offers here remain valid.


Dorff, Robert H. "Managing National Security in the Information and Terrorism Age." Forum 4, no. 1 (2006). []

From Abstract: "The United States does not have a clearly defined national security strategy for the 21st century. This problem has its roots in a failure ... to come to grips with the fundamentally different nature of the global strategic environment. Stating that we are 'at war with terrorism' ... fails to identify an underlying strategic imperative around which we can build a comprehensive organizing framework to protect and promote our security.... A grand strategy focused on the promotion of legitimate governance and the expansion of the global community of legitimately governed states would provide the organizing framework for managing national security."


Dorling, Philip. "Secret Spy Station on Cocos Islands." Sydney Morning Herald, 1 Nov. 2013. []

The Australian Defence Signals Directorate "is intercepting Indonesian naval and military communications through a secret radio listening post on the remote Cocos Islands.... The station has never been publicly acknowledged by the Australian government, or reported in the media, despite being in operation for more than two decades.... The facility includes radio-monitoring and direction-finding equipment, and a satellite ground station."


Dorling, Philip. "Spies, Lies and Archives." Sydney Morning Herald, 23 Apr. 2011. []

Recently released ASIO files "shed new light on left-wing Labor senator and Whitlam government minister John Wheeldon, who last year was identified by journalist and author Mark Aarons as a possible secret Australian Communist Party member.... The top-secret files released in response to applications by The Saturday Age reveal details of Wheeldon's involvement with KGB intelligence officers, together with ASIO's judgment that his actions were 'consistent with those of at least a collaborator with the RIS [Russian Intelligence Service]', and perhaps 'a recruited agent.'"

Dorn, A. Walter. "The Cloak and the Blue Beret: Limitations on Intelligence in UN Peacekeeping." International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 12, no. 4 (Winter 1999): 414-447.

"Analyzed information of both a secret and open nature (i.e., intelligence) is required in UN peacekeeping operations. Yet, severe limits and many shortcomings impede the present system for information-gathering, analysis, and dissemination."


Dorn, A. Walter. "Intelligence at UN Headquarters? The Information and Research Unit and the Intervention in Eastern Zaire 1996." Intelligence and National Security 20, no. 3 (Sep. 2005): 440-465.

The Information and Research (I&R) Unit was part of the Situation Centre of the UN's Department of Peacekeeping Operations from 1993 to 1999. Here, the author looks at the unit's efforts to report on the situation in Eastern Zaire in late 1996. He concludes that the unit "proved that intelligence was extremely important to understanding the fast-moving currents of the Eastern Zaire crisis.... A better appreciation of intelligence, its uses and pitfalls, would benefit the UN."

"With an intelligence-led approach the mission was successful in overcoming gang rule of entire districts, but not without initial opposition from within the mission, from Haitian officials and, of course, from the gangs themselves."

Fiscal 1997 funding has allowed the Air Force to resume operation of the SR-71.

2. "SR-71 Revived to Fill Intelligence Gap." Aviation Week & Space Technology, 10 Apr. 1995, 22-23.

Five years after the Air Force halted the program, Congress has given funding approval for the reactivation of two Lockheed SR-71 reconnaissance aircraft. "Senate leaders envision using the aircraft in a more tactical manner than before, and giving tasking and information distribution authority to local commanders.... The two SR-71s will operate as a detachment based at Edwards AFB, Calif., under their old organization, now called the 9th Reconnaissance Wing in Air Combat Command.... Reconnaissance satellites lack the flexibility and surprise of an aircraft, and the U-2 cannot penetrate defended airspace."
