Jaggers, R. C. "The Assassination of Reinhard Heydrich." Studies in Intelligence 4, no. 1 (Winter 1960): 1-19.

The assassination of SS Obergruppenfuehrer Reinhard Heydrich was planned and carried out by Czech intelligence in exile. Two young Czech soldiers volunteered for an assignment that assuredly meant they would die even if they were successful. On 29 May 1942, they attacked; Heydrich died of his wounds a few days later. The Nazi retaliation was horrific. The killing did not stop even after the two Czech heroes were finally cornered and killed. The author also presents the debate over whether killing Heydrich was worth the deaths of so many others.

Peake, Studies 57.3 (Sep 2013), and Intelligencer 20.2 (Fall-Winter 2013), notes that Bingham led "a double life as a respected agent handler and a successful author writing under his true name.... This is a very interesting account of an unusual man."

From abstract: "As a member of the secret Scheubner-Richter expedition in World War I, travelling to the Turkish-Persian frontier, and as spy chief in Istanbul from 1941 until 1944, Leverkuehn represents the history and development of German intelligence in Turkey....  His intelligence activities ended abruptly in February 1944, when his co-worker Erich Vermehren and his wife defected to the British."

Jajko, Walter. "The State of Defense Counterintelligence: An Opinion." Intelligencer 14, no. 1 (Winter-Spring 2004): 7-9.

Defense CI is "antiquated" and "not up to its mission." There is a need for "an effective, integrated, centralized, single Department of Defense Counterintelligence Service." Roy Reed and Anthony McIvor, "'The State of Defense Counterintelligence': A Reply," Intelligencer 14, no. 2 (Winter-Spring 2005): 7-11, respond to Jajko's (and others) criticisms with the argument that (1) "significant ameliorative measures are well underway"; and (2) Defense CI is "on the threshold.of attaining a substantial capability to contribute to national security as a strategic asset."


Jajko, Walter [BGEN/USAF (Ret.)]. "Strategy: Back to Basics." Intelligencer 15, no. 2 (Fall-Winter 2006-2007): 7-9.

"The planning and application of a mutually reinforcing effort against an enemy has to be the result of an integrated, coherent orchestration of a sustained national strategy that is suffused with an authentically strategic direction. Unfortunately, in the U.S. an understanding of this necessity and an organization for its conduct are absent."


  Jakes, Lara. "Secret Court Approves New US Order for Collecting Verizon Phone Records in Surveillance Sweep." Associated Press, 19 Jul. 2013. [http://www.washingtonpost.com]

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) has renewed an order "to continue forcing Verizon Communications to turn over hundreds of millions of telephone records to the government each day in its search for foreign terror or espionage suspects." The order's "renewal shows that the Obama administration and the court of 11 federal judges stand behind its legality." The office of DNI James Clapper "said it was confirming the Verizon renewal as part of an ongoing effort to make more information about the recently declassified programs as public as possible."


Jakub, Jay. Spies and Saboteurs: Anglo-American Collaboration and Rivalry in Human Intelligence Collection and Special Operations, 1940-45. London: Macmillan, 1998. New York: St. Martin's, 1999.

Jonkers, AFIO WIN, 7 May 1999, notes that this book "is based almost exclusively on recently declassified OSS and British intelligence documents and survivor interviews.... Excellent reading for students of history." Wiant, Studies 46.1, comments on the author's focus on "how OSS matured as a field-operating agency and increasingly developed the capacity for independence from its early British mentoring."

For Smith, I&NS 14.3, this is "an excellent work which has cast much new and clear light on William J. Donovan and the COI/OSS." Jakub has provided "an organizational history of the COI/OSS, as well as a summary study of its field operations, stage by stage from 1941 to 1945.... [In addition,] he traces the stresses and strains engendered by the closeness of Anglo-American secret activity partnership.... The bibliography and notes of sources cited clearly show that the author has done his homework."
