Ecker, William B. [CAPT/USN (Ret.)], and Kenneth V. Jack. Blue Moon Over Cuba: Aerial Reconnaissance During the Cuban Missile Crisis. Botley, UK: Osprey, 2012.

Healy, NIPQ 29.1 (Jan. 2013), says this "book is an enjoyable and easy read and at times becomes a real page turner" as it recounts the low-level reconnaissance flights of the Navy's VFP-62 squadron. It "includes an easy to understand mix of technical details which adds a good balance for those interested in that aspect."


Eckholm, Eric. "China Detects Racism in U.S. Report on Spying." New York Times, 1 Jun. 1999. []

On 31 May 1999, the information minister of China's State Council, Zhao Qizheng, called the Cox report "a tissue of half-truths, conjectures and lies." At a news conference, the minister "used an Internet hookup" to show that "detailed information" on U.S. "nuclear weapons was readily available from public sites.... [A] Web page of the Federation of American Scientists ( was shown on a screen as an operator scrolled through it, displaying technical descriptions of American warheads and missiles. But neither Internet sites like that nor books that Zhao [also] cited offer the secret design details at the center of the most serious espionage charges." See also, Michael Laris, "Chinese Surfer Downloads U.S. Nuclear Data." Washington Post, 1 Jun. 1999, A10.

A brief item in Federation of American Scientists, Secrecy & Government Bulletin 79 (Jun. 1999) notes the use by Chinese officials of the FAS Website, but comments that the site "does not provide detailed weapon designs that would enable readers to construct a nuclear weapon."


Eckholm, Eric. "China Labels Spying Claims 'Groundless.'" New York Times, 26 May 1999.

"Accusations that Chinese spies stole nuclear weapon designs and missile technology from the United States are 'totally groundless,' China's Foreign Ministry said" on 25 May 1999.


Eckholm, Erik. "China Says Scientist Told No Secrets About Warheads." New York Times, 23 Mar. 1999.

According to a report issued on 21 March 1999 by the New China News Agency, Wen Ho Lee "attended two scientific meetings in China in the 1980s." However, "Chinese scientists vehemently deny that Lee gave away plans for making advanced American warheads."

Eddington, Patrick G. Gassed in the Gulf: The Inside Story of the Pentagon-CIA Cover-Up of the Gulf War Syndrome. Washington, DC: Insignia Publishing Company, 1997.

According to McGehee, CIABASE Update Report, Aug. 1997, Eddington is a former CIA analyst who with his wife "tried to get the CIA to confront the edifice of lies regarding chemical agent exposures and their possible link to the Gulf War Syndrome.... Unearthing hundreds of classified documents they argue that tens of thousands of American troops had been exposed to chemical weapons."


Eddington, Patrick G. "Get Ready For More Targeting Disasters." Los Angeles Times, 5 Jul. 1999, 15.

"Since October 1996, when the CIA was told by Congress to turn its imagery components over" to the Department of Defense's NIMA, "there has been loss of key personnel and a lack of coordination between the intelligence and operational communities. This has left the United States and its allies vulnerable to making catastrophic errors like bombing the Chinese embassy. Congress must rethink how things are done or tragic mistakes will continue to happen."

Eddington, Patrick G. Long Strange Journey: An Intelligence Memoir. Shelbyville, KY: Wasteland, 2011.

Aftergood, Secrecy News, 28 Feb. 2011, notes that the author worked "as an imagery analyst for the CIA's National Photographic Intelligence Center" and "provides an introduction to the world of light tables, mensuration and the now-defunct world of the NPIC analyst." But he also undertook "a personal investigation" into Gulf War Syndrome. In the second half of the book, Eddington tells the story of his efforts "to air his ... findings to his superiors at CIA, to military officials and to congressional overseers."  This is his personal account, "and the thought processes of his bosses, colleagues and adversaries that led them to reject or downplay his efforts are not clearly articulated here." Nonetheless, Eddington's "impassioned first-person account raises challenging questions that go beyond the particulars of [his] story."

MI 21.2 notes that Spy Catchers "starts just before WWII and runs through the early Cold War years.... [O]nly one other book covers such a wide range of activities" -- Sayer and Botting, America's Secret Army (1989). Periscope 21.3 comments that "Edwards ... has written an informative, valuable and provocative book on a subject that has been neglected too long.... This is more than just a history of CIC operations.... It is an organizational history ... of the founding and demise of the Army CIC."

According to Surveillant 4.1, "Edwards ... tells how CIC operated in the Pacific Rim and how its agents overcame problems with the enemy and its own U.S. Army.... He also discusses the role of CIC in the U.S., especially its activities with the large Japanese population in Hawaii."

For Peake, Studies 54.1 (Mar. 2010), this work "adds much history of the Fenian movement and its struggles. In addition, [the author] corrects the many embellishments found in Le Caron's 1892 memoir.... Delusion is a well-documented corrective to an intriguing spy story."

"History" []: "Henri Le Caron, born Thomas Miller Beach, was a Civil War veteran recruited by the British in 1867 to spy on the Fenian movement in the United States. Le Caron was arguably one of the most successful covert agents to work for the Canadian government."
