"Our policy and procedural base (and the legal foundation for our action) lags the progress we have made in sensory and analytic capabilities. Moreover, current policies do not take into account the growing interaction and collaboration between the national intelligence, security, and law enforcement elements and emergency response structure of the Federal government (including the U.S. military), and emerging cooperation and exchange of information among federal and state, tribal, local, major city and private sector authorities."

Tried in secret and sentenced to 18 years in prison, Mordechai Vanunu "has long been kept in solitary confinement and barred from giving interviews and making phone calls.... So when the newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth published 11 pages of previously undisclosed court testimony and articles based on Vanunu's 1987 trial [on 24 November 1999], the impact here was sensational, even if the material was somewhat threadbare."

"As referee and mediator of the weekly meetings of Israeli and Palestinian security czars, the CIA station chief in Tel Aviv is a careful planner and a gracious host.... But ... he ... has lately been unable to coax the two sides toward a cordial entente. Some of the sessions have degenerated into shouting matches..., according to interviews with participants and Israeli media reports.... The rapid souring of the security meetings ... reflects the shrinking role of American diplomacy in the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict."
