Klaidman, Daniel, with Gregory L. Vistica. "Was the Spymaster Too Sloppy?" Newsweek, 19 Apr.1999, 42.

"Justice sources tell Newsweek that when [John M.] Deutch was CIA director, he ... routinely took his work home with him,... removing highly sensitive intelligence materials from CIA headquarters and accessing them on his unsecured personal computer even though he had a secure CIA computer in the house.... The Justice Department, which investigated the case for more than a year, decided not to press criminal charges, and has referred the matter back to the CIA. Officials close to the case say that the CIA's inspector general is preparing a 'scathing' report about Deutch's alleged security breaches, and the agency is considering whether to revoke his high-level security clearances."

This is a collection of 19 essays, covering topics considered to be of importance to world security for the immediate future. Some are on point in terms of being critical; others seem to have been included to meet the demands of political correctness.

Klehr, Harvey, and Ronald Radosh. The Amerasia Spy Case: Prelude to McCarthyism. Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 1996.

Unsinger, IJI&C 10.2, notes that Klehr and Radosh "supply "an expanded view of the familiar case, made possible by greater access to the documents of the period." Wannell, WIR 15.4, finds the book to be a "very readable and understandable" presentation of a complicated case. The book both explains the Amerasia case itself and portrays its aftermath, including "two highly politicized congressional hearings."

For Schmitt, APSR 91.3, this is "the most definitive account to date of both the case itself and its place in the domestic political turmoil over anticommunism which followed." The book's focus really is not espionage, but the authors "provide a good if somewhat untidy overview of the intelligence and counterintelligence aspects of the case."

The Publishers Weekly reviewer (via finds that "Klein's account is well researched and highly valuable.... [W]hile the episodic structure he employs becomes repetitive, it is nevertheless a necessary read for anyone interested in Israeli history and politics as well as the birth of modern counter-terrorism." According to Associated Press, "Book Details Mossad's Chocolate Assassination," 6 May 2006, the author says that Mossad killed Wadia Haddad, an operative of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, in Baghdad by feeding him poisoned Belgian chocolate over a period of six months. Haddad died in March 1978.


Kleinman, Steven M. "KUBARK Counterintelligence Interrogation Review: Observations of an Interrogator." Defense Intelligence Journal 15, no. 1 (2006): 79-134.

This is a detailed look at "the potential for lessons learned" from the controversial "KUBARK Counterintelligence Interrogation Manual," produced by the CIA in 1963 and declassified in 1997. The author finds in the manual "a wealth of valuable concepts that either have the potential for immediate application ... or that warrant further study."

Kloman, Erasmus H. Assignment Algiers: With the OSS in the Mediterranean Theater. Annapolis, MD: Naval Institute Press, 2005.

From publisher: As OSS Acting Chief of Operations in the Mediterranean Theater, the author "helped organize and coordinate the actions of Special Operations (SO) teams that infiltrated Italy and occupied-France." The author "provides a fascinating inside view of the 'shadow war' within the larger conflagration of World War II."

Peake, Studies 50.1 (Mar. 2006), comments that the author's "narrative is something more than a first-hand account of OSS operations from a staff officer's perspective." Although Kloman tells of the OSS role supporting French partisans and the Italian resistance, "he also includes the day-to-day difficulties encountered with the often uncooperative British and the persistent confusion within OSS itself -- both of which limited the impact OSS had on the war.... In his perceptive epilogue, Kloman looks back on his wartime OSS service and the influence of the organization on postwar intelligence."

Kahn, JIH 1.2, notes that this CD "pictorially reproduces the original document but also permits its text to be searched for individual words." This work, long thought to be Herbert O. Yardley’s second book on the Washington naval disarmament conference, was actually written by "a young free-lance journalist, Marie Stuart Klooz.... The manuscript consists essentially of hundreds of intercepted Japanese diplomatic dispatches with scraps of connecting text.... Its literary merit is nil -- Klooz is banal ... and unperspicacious. And its historical value is small. The intercepts carry no code designation and, most importantly, no date of solution, making them useless to the historian who needs to know when the American negotiators received them." Yardley's memoir, The American Black Chamber, "flaunted the most significant solutions; the new ones given here add little. Still, the work gives many more Japanese messages than ever before ... and they are in English. They will be of most use, despite their flaws, to the historians of disarmament and of Japanese politics."
