Goss, Porter J. "Don't Release Pollard." Washington Times, 5 Jan. 1999, 15.

The HPSCI chair argues: "Pollard is still an unrepentant criminal, fairly adjudicated by the country he betrayed. It would be a grave mistake to barter our justice system as a sweetener for Mr. Netanyahu who found the Wye Plantation Agreement a bit too sour."

Gossett, Renée Pierre-. Tr., Nancy Hecksher. Conspiracy in Algiers, 1942-1943. New York: The Nation, 1945.

Woolbert, FA (Oct. 1945), notes that the French journalist author "was in Algiers from the spring of 1941 until after the Allied invasion of North Africa, during which time she was employed by the American Government in various capacities. Her circumstantial story of the negotiations, plots and personalities involved in the North African affair will prove of value to future historians." For Gruin, Saturday Review, 20 Oct. 1945, "Gossett was in a position to observe and understand much more than most Allied newsmen.... She sheds a great deal of light on the details of what actually happened in those cloak-and-dagger months."


Goudsmit, Samuel A. ALSOS. New York: Henry Schuman, 1947. ALSOS: The Failure of German Science. London: Sigma, 1947.

Pforzheimer: The author led the civilians on a joint military-scientific team that went into Germany with the advancing Allied forces on a scientific intelligence mission. The goal was determine what the Germans knew about our atomic bomb and the extent of German progress in producing such a device. The leader of the military side of the team was Boris Pash, whose version (The ALSOS Mission) is regarded by Constantinides as "more operational and intelligence oriented" than Goudsmit's account.

Gould, Jonathan S. "The OSS and the London 'Free Germans.'" Studies in Intelligence 46, no. 1 (2002): 11-29.

The author's father, U.S. Army Lt. Joseph Gould, recruited and trained German OSS agents for the London office of OSS' Secret Intelligence Branch (SI). Here, he tells the story of seven German trade unionists recruited and dispatched into Germany as the war was drawing to a close. The agents came from the ranks of the Free Germany Committee of Great Britain. It appears that the agents were sent to him after vetting through Soviet intelligence with the famous Sonya (Ursula Kucznski, aka Ruth Werner) as intermediary.

From "Abstract": Because "a large portion of the intelligence effort had to be devoted to gathering political intelligence,... SOE operatives became embroiled in the internecine struggles between communist based and other resistance groups. Intelligence work was made even more difficult by inter- and intra-departmental rivalries, and tensions among the Allies involved in Greece."

In times of crisis, analysts "are expected to do what they have been taught their whole career to avoid; they must make rapid assessments of enemy intentions and well developed projections based on intuition." The author makes some suggestions on how analysts might be better prepared to respond to requirements for instananeous assessments.
