According to the FBI, Mariano Faget "waited just 12 minutes before divulging classified information about a possible defection of a Cuban intelligence officer to a New York businessman with ties to the Castro government." Faget "telephoned the Cuban-born businessman after he was told of the possible defection by FBI and INS officials in what turned out to be an elaborate trap."


Dröge, Philip. Beroep Meesterspion: Het Geheime Leven von Prinz Bernhard. Amsterdam: Vassallucci, 2002.

Scott-Smith, I&NS 19.1, comments that the "main value" of this biography of Prince Bernhard "is that it gathers together the material, most of it already published in various other works, concerning Bernhard's noteworthy relationship with various intelligence services, including the Abwehr, MI6, and CIA." The author made "a serious effort to gather new material" but "is unable to offer much more than extra details to stories already in the public domain."

"Whether at greater or lesser degrees of intensity, the battle over intelligence oversight never really ends.... [I]t involves us all ... in a delicate dance involving each branch and its members, which began when the Constitution took effect and has continued ever since."


Drozdiak, William.(Washington Post).

Drumheller, Tyler, with Elaine Monaghan. On the Brink: An Insider's Account of How the White House Compromised American Intelligence. New York: Carroll & Graf, 2006.

According to Bamford, Washington Post, 12 Dec. 2006, the author "describes his frustrating -- and ultimately unsuccessful -- efforts to warn senior CIA and White House officials that they were on the road to disaster" in Iraq. "[T]his is the first time the CIA official at the center of the ["Curveball"] controversy has told his story." Despite the CIA's censors, the book "shows how easy it was for a small cadre of senior intelligence officials, intent on war, to send the country into a bloody quagmire."

Peake, Studies 51.1 (Mar. 2007), comments that this work "is a firsthand account by a respected former CIA officer and thus should be taken seriously. The story he tells is sourced in the text." For West, IJI&C 20.3 (Fall 2007), the author's "account is a thoughtful, considered stilleto blade delivered into the heart" of the CIA's Directorate of Operations. Drumheller's "narrative is important, both in terms of intelligence history ... and in terms of the role played by professionals in seeking to offer politicians unbiased and accurate advice."

In his autobiography, George Tenet [At the Center of the Storm: My Years at the CIA (2007), pp. 376-383] takes pointed exception to Drumheller's assertions regarding his concerns about Curveball. Tenet stops short of accusing Drumheller of lying, but certainly makes it clear that multiple opportunities to raise concerns about Curveball, to the extent they existed at the time, were not acted upon.

Dubovsky, Peter. Hezekiah and the Assyrian Spies: Reconstruction of the Neo-Assyrian Intelligence Services and its Significance for 2 Kings 18-19. Rome: Pontificio Instituto Biblico, 2006.

According to Peake, Studies 54.2 (Jun. 2010) and Intelligencer 18.1 (Fall-Winter 2010), the author uses both the Bible and "thousands of well-preserved cuneiform tablets excavated from the archives in Niniveh ... and Nimrud" to reveal "the existence of Assyrian intelligence networks and the espionage involved in Sennacherib's invasion of Judah.... In general, Dubovsky found that all the functions of the so-called intelligence cycle existed, but without specific names. Furthermore, there were no intelligence services as such; all officials were, in a sense, intelligence officers and tasked as needed.... [T]he book is extensively documented and leaves little doubt that intelligence is one of the oldest professions."


Dubro, James, and Robin Rowland. Undercover: Cases of the RCMP's Most Secret Operative. Markham, Ontario: Octopus Publishing, 1991.

According to Hannant, I&NS 9.1, "Frank Zaneth was the first officer recruited by the RCMP to be a secret undercover operative." From the end of World War I into the 1940s, Zaneth worked first against the political left/labor, and after being compromised in that work moved into criminal undercover work. The book "bogs down occasionally in unimportant detail." Nevertheless, it is a "fascinating inside look at the RCMP during the first two decades of its security intelligence operation, revealing the extent to which criminal and political policing overlapped and the extent to which partisan political decisions guided the force and its actions."
