Gladwin, Lee A. "Did Sigint Seal the Fate of 19,000 POWs?" Cryptologia 30, no. 3 (Jul.-Sep. 2006): 199-211.

The author argues against the conclusion that JICPOA gave the coordinates of Japanese merchant ships carrying Allied POWs to ComSubPac knowing that POWs would be killed. The intercepts that led to the erroneous conclusion actually came the Japanese Water Transport Code system. This system did not provide indicators of the presence of POWs on the merchant ships. This article also offers some indicators of the significant conflicts between Army and Navy codebreaking organizations.

From abstract: Army Col. Philip Faymonville "played a significant and controversial role" in U.S.-Soviet relations in the 1930s and 1940s. "The first U.S. military attaché to the Soviet Union, Faymonville provided dispassionate, accurate assessments of the Red Army's military worth. Yet he earned the enduring hostility of his military and diplomatic colleagues. During World War II, Faymonville returned to Moscow as lend-lease expediter. He reported directly to the White House, and worked independently from the military attaché and the Embassy, solidifying his position as outsider and raising questions about the role of military officers in the conduct of diplomacy."

Glasser, Susan B. "Russia to Dismantle Spy Facility in Cuba." Washington Post, 18 Oct. 2001, A34.

Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on 17 October 2001 that "Russia will close its major eavesdropping center in Cuba.... In withdrawing from the Lourdes base, Putin is putting to rest one of the major relics of the Cold War still in operation in Cuba. The base, built by the Soviet Union in 1964, continues to house an estimated 1,500 military personnel, and its role as a significant electronic intelligence center has been a major point of contention with the United States in recent years."

See also Kevin Sullivan, "Cuba Upset By Closure of Russian Spy Base," Washington Post, 19 Oct. 2001, A26: "The Cuban government has angrily denounced Russia's decision to close a key electronic eavesdropping facility in Cuba, alleging that President Vladimir Putin made the move as a 'special gift' to President Bush before their meeting this weekend at an economic summit in Shanghai."

Glasser, Susan B., and Peter Baker. "An Outsider's Quick Rise to Bush Terror Adviser." Washington Post, 27 Aug. 2005, A1. []

Frances Fragos Townsend "runs President Bush's far-flung campaign against terrorism. Her two predecessors were four-star generals who brought decades of experience to the fight. Townsend, 43, a former mob prosecutor, has a different credential -- the president's ear."


Glasser, Susan B., and Michael Grunwald. "Department's Mission Was Undermined From Start." Washington Post, 22 Dec. 2005, A1. []

"Nearly three years after it was created in the largest government reorganization since the Department of Defense," the DHS story "is one of haphazard design, bureaucratic warfare and unfulfilled promises.... To some extent, the department was set up to fail. It was assigned the awesome responsibility of defending the homeland without the investigative, intelligence and military powers of the FBI, CIA and the Pentagon; it was also repeatedly undermined by the White House that initially opposed its creation. But the department has also struggled to execute even seemingly basic tasks, such as prioritizing America's most critical infrastructure."


Glave, James. "Valley VCs to CIA: 'Huh?'" Wired News, 29 Sep. 1999. [http://www.]

It is the opinion of some venture capitalists and policy watchers that "[t]he CIA's new venture capital project isn't going to come up with anything that the free market won't do on its own." Gregory Barr of Fleet Equity Partners "said that the agency should stick to the current scheme of contracting out for products. 'It seems like they would only add layers to [the procurement bureaucracy],'" he said.
