Safety issues are paramount and will take some time yet to resolve, but before UAVs proliferate the national airspace, certain political, legal, and ethical questions must be asked about the appropriateness of this technology for domestic purposes and the implications for civil liberties."

Gentile, Carmen. "Cuban Spies' Shortwave Radios Go Undetected." Washington Times, 18 Jun. 2009. [http://www.washingtontimes.com]
Walter Kendall Myers, a retired State Department officer, and his wife, Gwendolyn, "who are accused of spying for Cuba appear to have avoided capture for 30 years because their communications with the Caribbean island were too low-tech to be detected by sophisticated U.S. monitors." According to a Justice Department affidavit, "they told an FBI agent posing as a Cuban intelligence officer that they received orders from Cuba's intelligence services over shortwave radio."

"Population-centric counterinsurgency (COIN) has become the American Army's new way of war. The principles and ideas that emerged out of the Army's counterinsurgency field manual (FM), FM 3-24 ... have become transcendent. The field manual has moved beyond simple Army doctrine for countering insurgencies to become the defining characteristic of the Army's new way of war. In the American Army today, everyone is a counterinsurgent.... Regrettably, the American Army's new way of war ... has become the only operational tool in the Army's repertoire to deal with problems of insurgency and instability throughout the world. Population-centric COIN may be a reasonable operational method to use in certain circumstances, but it is not a strategy. There are flaws and limitations that need to be exposed and considered."

The arrest of a Russian citizen on charges of spying for Britain "came only days after [British Prime Minister Tony] Blair met [Acting Russian President Vladimir] Putin -- a former KGB agent and more recently the head of the FSB -- for informal talks and a friendly evening at the opera in St Petersburg.... Another Russian citizen, Platon Obukhov, was arrested in 1996 for allegedly passing secrets of a 'political and strategic defence character' to British agents while working as a diplomat for the Russian foreign ministry."

Gentry, Curt. J. Edgar Hoover: The Man and the Secrets. New York: Norton, 1991. New York: Truman Talley/Plume, 1992. [pb] New York: Norton, 2001. [pb]
Clark comment: There is much here, perhaps too much. It is difficult at times to separate the sourced from the unsourced from the purely speculative. The following is one of many such examples -- this one occurring in the space of less than two pages: "What happened ... during the next few days can only be surmised.... would obviously ... Typically,... would have.... would surely be ... presumably saw ... Perhaps ... is the likely approach ... would have been ... may have ... must have ... would have been...." Parsing this huge (760 pages of text) and sprawling work for what is and is not on the mark might well require as much research as went into the book itself, although the retelling of earlier events (up to 1945) gives the impression of being sounder than some of what follows.
Surveillant 2.1 calls Gentry's work "[a]n impressive, comprehensive account -- hostile but fairer than expected." Nonetheless, the author "presents more of a caricature of Hoover than the man deserves." Similarly, Elson, Time, 14 Oct. 1991, notes that Gentry "generally is better at describing what the director did than at analyzing what made him tick."
For O'Reilly, Policy Studies Journal 21.3, Gentry's is "by far the best Hoover biography ... but we cannot learn much about the director and civil rights from a writer who has either never heard of Selma ... or simply cannot keep the movement's seminal events straight." Wannall, FILS 11.2, calls the book a "gathering of gossip and undocumented allegations." The "principal source ... was William C. Sullivan," who was a "biased, vengeful person." Yet Wannall, The Real J. Edgar Hoover (2000), p. 185, also refers to Gentry as "one of the less-biased chroniclers of Hoover's life and career."
