Hartcher, Peter. "KGB Spy Still at Large after Infiltrating ASIO." Australian Financial Review, 29 Jun. 2000. [http://afr.com.au]

According to materials provided by former KGB archivist Vasili Mitrokhin, who defected to Britain in 1992, a KGB agent penetrated the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO), remained "undetected for a decade[,] and is still living in Australia. The agent ... rose to a senior position.... Officials said he was not prosecuted because of a lack of evidence."

The eventual success of the Irish nationalists "constitutes a classic example of the effectiveness of unconventional warfare in forcing a powerful adversary to the negotiating table. [footnote omitted] The Irish intelligence service was one of the architects of the victory. The Director of Intelligence of the Irish Republican Army during the last act of the drama was Michael Collins."

Mercado, IJI&C 18.1 (Spring 2005), calls this "an impressive history" of U.S. intelligence. The author "begins on the eve of Pearl Harbor" and continues through World War II and the U.S. occupation before turning to the Cold War era. In high praise, the reviewer comments: "As impressive as Haruna's thoroughness is his rational view of intelligence."

Hansen, IJI&C 13.3, finds that two of the author's basic theses -- "that there may have been an unprecedented intelligence failure in Iraq" and that "President Bush ... stopped the war because he feared that Saddam Hussein would use biological weapons if coalition forces pushed on to Baghdad" -- are "just plain wrong."

This is a report on the Special Operations Association annual convention, held in October 1999 in Las Vegas. Although the writer probably believes that she is presenting these veterans in a fair and sympathetic manner, it is clear that she -- as is the case of all of us who never served in the Special Operations milieu -- does not understand them. A quote from Maj. John Plaster is worth repeating: These "'are the best people I've ever met in my life,' he said. 'There's not many people in this life who would genuinely give their life for yours. The only respect we had was from each other. We were never recognized.'"
