Faddis, Charles S. Beyond Repair: The Decline and Fall of the CIA. Guilford, CT: Lyons, 2010.

Peake, Studies 54.1 (Mar. 2010) and Intelligencer 17.2 (Winter-Spring 2010), notes that the author argues that the CIA "is no longer capable of performing the task for which it was designed and must, rapidly, be replaced." Faddis sees OSS as the model for "the right way to run operations." Many of the problems identified here "will be familiar to current and former officers.... Although he begins his book by asserting that CIA's problems are structural, his descriptions and guidance suggest they are fundamentally people related. If he has got that right, current CIA management could implement solutions. This is an option Beyond Repair does not explore."

Fägersten, Björn. "Bureaucratic Resistance to International Intelligence Cooperation -- The Case of Europol." Intelligence and National Security 25, no. 4 (Aug. 2010): 500-520.

"The empirical focus of th[is] study is Europe's counter terrorim intelligence cooperation as it has developed within the European Police Office (Europol).... The key argument ... is that we must look beyond state preferences and study also the impact of various bureaucratic factors to better understand the variation in form and function of arrangements for intelligence cooperation."


Fahey, John A. Licensed to Spy: With the Top Secret Military Liaison Mission in East Germany. Annapolis, MD: Naval Institute Press, 2002.

From advertisement: This is the author's "firsthand account of his activities as a U.S. naval officer in East Germany.... As a member of a military liaison mission established in a ... 1947 agreement between U.S. and Soviet forces, [he] was legally permitted to perform surveillance in East Germany and took advantage of the opportunity to conduct dangerous intelligence missions." For Peake, Studies 46.4, "[t]his is a valuable memoir, the first to tell the story of this important American military organization. Seamon, Proceedings, Dec. 2002, refers to this as "a well-told tale."

The British security firm Aegis Defence Services Ltd. won a three-year, $293 million U.S. Army contract in 2004 to, among other things, "collect sensitive information" in Iraq. The firm's "sprawling presence in Iraq" is "the most visible example of how intelligence collection is now among the responsibilities handled by a network of private security companies.... Aegis's intelligence activities include battlefield threat assessments, the electronic tracking of thousands of private contractors on Iraq's dangerous roads, and community projects the company says are designed in part to win over 'hearts and minds.'"
