An estimate of the performance characteristics of a newly unveiled aircraft "can be made with good reliability if a few photographs of the plane have been taken from the ground. The task begins with the photogrammetrist and the photo interpreter."

Herman, Steve. "U-2 Spy Plane Still Flying High." VOA, 14 Dec. 2011. [http://www.voanews.com]

"Whether it's aiding NATO troops in Afghanistan, providing surveillance over North Korea or examining Japan's hurricane ravaged coast, the high altitude U-2 keeps flying despite initial plans to retire it by the end of this year.... The Defense Department, five years ago, intended to begin retiring the fleet. But Congress insisted the spy plane stay aloft until unmanned reconnaissance aircraft are capable of taking over its critical missions. The Air Force now says that will happen in 2015 when the Global Hawk RQ-4 drones can assume the U-2s missions."


Hermann, Robert J. "Advancing Technology: Collateral Effects on Intelligence." American Intelligence Journal 15, no. 2 (Autumn-Winter 1994): 8-11.

Hermann describes what he calls "a very important new management challenge: the integration of the use of ... 'national' systems into the real-time operation of combat forces.... This management challenge ... is fundamentally a military force configuration issue. The objective is to create a force configuration which can access, assimilate and exploit real-time information."

The author also argues that "the information we need [today] is not dominated by what we have come to call 'intelligence'.... For the new problems, we need information, not just 'intelligence'.... This does not mean that intelligence from denied sources will not be needed or valuable.... A full understanding of any problem will need the addition of intelligence, but it will often not be the dominant source. The most powerful information combination will be the effective exploitation of open source information coupled with intelligence obtained from special sources and methods."

Clark comment: This was an early salvo in Washington's "intelligence wars," that is, a subtle and low-keyed representative of the arguments to come from within the military segment of the intelligence community which seek to undermine the need for a national-level intelligence coordination capability.

Hermes, Walter G. Truce Tent and Fighting Front. United States Army in the Korean War Series, U.S. Army Center of Military History. Washington, DC: GPO, 1966.

As one of the U.S. Army official histories of the Korean War [see also, Appleman, Disaster in Korea (1989) and Schnabel, Policy and Direction: The First Year (1972)], the focus of this work is not on intelligence; but intelligence issues are addressed within the broader context of coverage of the war.


Hermiston, Roger. The Greatest Traitor: The Secret Lives of Agent George Blake. London: Aurum Press, 2013.

Peake, Studies 57.4 (Dec. 2013), calls this "the most complete and well-written account of the Blake case."


Hermon, John [Sir]. Holding the Line. Dublin: Gil and Macmillan, 1997.

According to West, History 26.1, Hermon is a retired chief constable of the Royal Ulster Constabulary. West notes that Hermon's book, read in conjunction with John Stalker's autobiography, Stalker (1988), produces "a compelling conflict that demonstrates the complexity of everything that happens in Ireland."

Hernandez, Debra Gersh.

1. "Posing as Journalists." Editor & Publisher, 2 Mar. 1996, 8-9, 22.

The author reviews the (then-)current flap about the CIA's use of journalists for intelligence collection and for operational cover.

2. "Journalists as Spies." Editor & Publisher, 10 Aug. 1996, 16-17, 36.

Hernandez reports on hearings before the SSCI. Quoted as testifying in favor of a total ban on the use of journalists in CIA operations or as cover for CIA officers are Terry Anderson, Ted Koppel, and Mort Zuckerman. Kenneth L. Adelman would leave the existing policy in place. Senators Kerrey (D-NE) and Glenn (D-OH) spoke against a total ban.

Herring, Eric. Danger and Opportunity: Explaining International Crisis Outcomes. Manchester, UK: Manchester University Press, 1995.

Gray and Walton, I&NS 13.2, present this work as a mixed bag. They see the theoretic section as "solid" and the author's knowledge of the literature as "excellent." On the other hand, the associated cases studies -- "including two crises relating to Berlin, the Cuban Missile Crisis, [and] the Sino-Soviet crisis of 1969" -- "are somewhat disappointing." Overall, however, the book "is a good introduction to the debates in crisis theory."

The author expresses concerns about an overemphasis on "tactically-oriented CI activities to support deployed joint task forces." He offers the Army's Foreign Counterintelligence Activity (FCA) as a potential model for the National Counterintelligence Executive (NCIX).


Herrington, Stuart A. Stalking the Vietcong: Inside Operation Phoenix: A Personal Account. Novato, CA: Presidio, 1997. 2004. [pb]

From publisher: The author was a U.S. "intelligence advisor assigned to ... Hau Nghia province. His two-year mission to capture or kill Communist agents operating there was made all the more difficult by local officials who were reluctant to cooperate, villagers who were too scared to talk, and VC who would not go down without a fight. Herrington developed an unexpected but intense identification with the villagers in his jurisdiction -- and learned the hard way that experiencing war was profoundly different from philosophizing about it in a seminar room.


Herrington, Stuart A. Traitors among Us: Inside the Spy Catcher's World. Novato, CA: Presidio, 1999.

According to Sullivan, NWCR, Summer 2000, the major focus of this book is the "extremely sensitive counterintelligence operations worldwide" of the Army's elite Foreign Counterintelligence Activity (FCA), based at Fort Meade, Maryland. This "is a fast-paced story of 'teamwork and cooperation between counterintelligence agents of the United States Army, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation,' who 'collaborated closely with German, Swedish, Austrian, and Italian security officials.'"
