According to a Time, 28 Feb. 1955, reviewer, this is "the exciting true story of Lieut. [later Brig. Gen.] Donald Blackburn, one of the handful of Americans to fight through on Luzon to the triumphant end. He survived by dodging north from Manila to hide out among the mountain Igorots, who used to be headhunters and were still not entirely reformed when Blackburn met up with them."

1. "How MI5 Spied on Lennon." Sunday Times (London), 20 Feb. 2000. [http://www.the-times.co.uk]

On 18 February 2000, a federal judge in Los Angeles ordered the FBI "to release two letters about secret surveillance operations" on former Beatle John Lennon. The FBI had sought to keep the documents secret "because ... the information they contain belongs to a 'foreign power'. The unstated fact is that the documents are a summary of MI5 files....

"Evidence put before Robbins indicates that not only were Lennon and his wife ... spied on by the FBI ... but Lennon was also monitored by Special Branch and MI5 for years before he moved to America.... MI5 is likely to be angered by the Los Angeles court decision. It will confirm old-guard suspicions that any information passed to America in confidence will, sooner or later, be made public and could rebound on them."

2. "Lennon Funded Terrorists and Trotskyists." Sunday Times (London), 20 Feb. 2000. [http://www.the-times.co.uk]

"The secrets of how MI5 spied on John Lennon are to be revealed after a ruling by a Los Angeles federal court cleared the way for the release of British intelligence reports held by the FBI.... The 10 packages of documents ... are believed to expose how Lennon gave money to the Irish Republican Army.... They also show that he paid £46,000 to left-wing groups including the Trotskyist Workers' Revolutionary Party (WRP) and Red Mole, a Marxist magazine edited by Tariq Ali, the student protest leader."


Harman, Jane. "Disrupting the Intelligence Community: America's Spy Agencoes Need an Upgrade." Foreign Affairs 94, no. 2 (Mar.-Apr. 2015): 99-107.

This article is worth a read. The director, president, and CEO of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and former senator notes that "a central mission of the CIA -- developing human intelligence -- is getting much tougher to carry out." She mentions some things that the CIA might do to deal with that situation, but also concludes that "the CIA's edge is paramilitary." Harman argues that NSA's "top priorities should be code-making, code-breaking, and cyberwarfare." She also sees the intelligence community moving away from "traditional espionage and toward open-source analysis."


Harman, Jane. "Four Steps to Better Intelligence." Washington Post, 8 Feb. 2004, B7. [http://www.washingtonpost.com]

Representative Harmon (D-CA), ranking Democrat on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, states: "At least five extensive inquiries have already been conducted regarding the prewar intelligence on Iraq, and every one of them has been sharply critical. While another investigation may tell us a few things we don't yet know, we cannot wait until after November to begin making needed improvements."


Harmon, Christopher C. "Five Strategies of Terrorism." Small Wars and Insurgencies 12 (Autumn 2001): 39-66.


Harmon, Christopher C. Terrorism Today. London and Portland, OR: Frank Cass, 2000.

Although this work was written prior to 11 September 2001, Jonkers, AFIO WIN 30-02 (29 Jul. 2002), recommends it "for those who look at patterns, trends and other aspects of terrorism." Joes, I&NS 16.2, finds that this work "provides a useful bibliography and a glossery of terrorist groups. The copious notes are of great value,... containing much useful information and often very astute analytical comments.... [However,] the author is not always as careful as one might like in establishing and maintaining the real and important distinction between terrorists and guerrillas."

Friedman, Parameters 31 (Summer 2001), comments that this work "provides a current study to remind the reader that while there are few instances of terrorism alone accomplishing strategic goals, it often succeeds at the tactical level. Dr. Harmon's translations of the primary published thoughts of various terrorists is a major supplement to this book.." For Bath, NIPQ 17.2, "Terrorism Today is well researched and well organized and of great value to those interested in ... the problem of countering terrorist activities."

"Imagery is a key ingredient to the mission's success throughout the entire planning and striking process, from first opening the target folder to egressing the target area."


Harnden, Toby. "CIA Gets the Go-ahead to Take on Hizbollah." Telegraph (London), 10 Jan. 2007. [http://www.telegraph.co.uk]

A finding signed by President George W. Bush before Christmas 2006 authorizes the CIA "to take covert action against Hizbollah ... to help the Lebanese government prevent the spread of Iranian influence. Senators and congressmen have been briefed on the classified 'non-lethal presidential finding' that allows the CIA to provide financial and logistical support to the prime minister, Fouad Siniora."

Harper, Gilbert S. "Logistics in Grenada: Supporting No-Plan Wars." Parameters (Jun. 1990): 50-63. [http://www.dtic.mil]

"Operation Urgent Fury was launched with little accurate information about conditions on the island. Logistic intelligence was not sought, such as the capacity of the airfields, the road networks, the local sources of supply and services, the sources of potable water, and the specific health conditions. Since standard military maps were not available, several other kinds of maps, including a reprinted tourist map of Grenada with a makeshift military grid overlay, were issued." [Footnote omitted]


Harper, Stephen. Capturing Enigma: How HMS Petard Seized the German Naval Codes. New York: Sutton, 1999. Kampf um Enigma. Die Jagd auf U 559. Hamburg: E. S. Mittler & Sohn, 2001.

According to Kruh, Cryptologia 24.3, the author "tells the dramatic story of how the Petard attacked and captured U-559 " and its coveted Enigma coding material in the Eastern Mediterranean in October 1942.

Commenting on the German edition, Rohwer, JIH 2.2, notes that with the material captured from German U-Boat U 559, "Bletchley Park was able to break into the 'M-4'-cipher 'Triton' and could provide the Submarine Tracking Room (S.T.R.) with decrypted signals between B.d.U. [German U-Boat Command] and German U-Boats from mid-December 1942 on." This breakthrough "was one of the most important reasons for the change of the tide in the Battle of the Atlantic in May 1943.... Unfortunately, at least the German edition of this book contains several errors or mistakes."
