"The lack of focus on a single unifying skill has led the naval intelligence community away from supporting the fleet. The community has been so focused on developing specialty skills it has stopped addressing the fleet's basic need: actionable intelligence."


Hines, Jason. "Sins of Omission and Commission: A Reassessment of the Role of Intelligence in the Battle of Jutland." Journal of Military History 72, no. 4 (Oct. 2008): 1117-1153

Abstract: "The role that Admiralty communications intelligence played in the Battle of Jutland has been given mixed reviews in histories of the battle. Historians acknowledge the superb performance of the Admiralty's cryptographic organization in efficiently decrypting German naval communications before and during the battle, yet the fact that communications intelligence did not reach Admiral Jellicoe in usable or recognizable form had led historians to judge this a failure. This article argues that contrary to the accepted history, the dissemination system performed as planned, since the Admiralty placed a higher premium on the security of the intelligence source over its operational use by the fleet at sea."


Hingley, Ronald. The Russian Secret Police: Muscovite, Imperial Russian and Soviet Political Security Operations. London: Hutchinson, 1970. New York: Simon & Schuster, 1971.

Pforzheimer reports that Hingley covers from Ivan the Terrible to the 1970s. Although he adds "no new insights or interpretations," the book is "well written" and "provides good background reading." Rocca and Dziak say that this book "is generally reliable and is one of the few works available covering such a broad time frame."

NameBase: "This little book is in two parts.... Hirsch's essay, 'The Labour Movement: Penetration Point for U.S. Intelligence and Transnationals' (pp. 7-48), is about the history and operations of the American Institute for Free Labor Development.... Most of Hirsch's essay is a case study of the AIFLD in Chile.... Richard Fletcher's essay, 'Who Were THEY Travelling With?' (pp. 51-71), concerns the deep pockets of U.S. intelligence and the effect this had on the British Labour Party.... Portions of this essay also appeared in Philip Agee and Louis Wolf, eds., 'Dirty Work' (pp. 188-200), under the title 'How CIA Money Took the Teeth Out of British Socialism.'"

According to Cohen, FA 74.4 (Jul.-Aug. 1995), the authors "served with distinction during America's curious and bloody 1992-94 Somalia involvement." Their work is "a mixture of memoir and postmortem." Although they "are cognizant of the failures of American policy, they lay considerable stress on the success of its humanitarian phases."

Hirsh, Michael. "Washington's Drone Wars." National Journal Magazine, 22 Feb. 2014. [http://www.nationaljournal.com]

"It's been more than a year since incoming CIA Director John Brennan signaled his intention to shift drone warfare to the Pentagon.... And President Obama endorsed his plan..., according to administration officials. But a funny thing happened.... According to intelligence experts and some powerful friends of the CIA on Capitol Hill,... the agency may simply be much better than the military at killing people in a targeted, precise way -- and, above all, at ensuring that the bad guys they're getting are really bad guys.... [T]he Pentagon's most recent botched hit in Yemen,... pointed up problems with the military-run program that have long worried detractors."
