Kutner, Joshua A. "Report Says Intelligence Collection Needs Drastic Overhaul." National Defense, Jan. 1998, 8.

The National Institute for Public Policy has published a report, "Moderning Intelligence: Structure and Change of the 21st Century," written by William E. Odom [LTGEN/USA (Ret.)]. He recommends organizing the intelligence community by discipline -- imagery intelligence, signals intelligence, and human intelligence -- and for placing the National Reconnaissance Office under the National Security Agency and the National Imagery and Mapping Agency.

Kuttler, Hillel. "Goverment Puts Official Visits to Pollard on Hold." Jerusalem Post, 19 Jan. 1999. [http://www.jpost.com]

"Visits by Israeli government officials to imprisoned spy Jonathan Pollard have been put on hold while the campaign proceeds to attain his release, Israeli Embassy officials said at the beginning of the week. The officials did not say that the decision is an explicit one decided on by either Pollard or the Israeli government."

Kuusinen, Aino. The Rings of Destiny: Inside Soviet Russia from Lenin to Brezhnev. New York: Morrow, 1974.

Pforzheimer notes that Kuusinen is the widow of the late Comintern luminary Otto Kuusinen. "This book is especially valuable for the insights given to the Shanghai phase, in the 1930's, of the intelligence activities of ... Richard Sorge and his successors in China. The work provides information and clues not available in other accounts of Sorge's operations."

Kwitny, Jonathan. "The C.I.A.'s Secret Armies in Europe." The Nation, 6 Apr. 1992, 444-448.

The author furnishes a broad overview of some of the discussion surrounding exposure of the stay-behind activities begun by the United States in European countries in the early days of the Cold War. Former U.S. and European officials are quoted, including David Whipple, Victor Marchetti, Richard Helms, Thomas Polgar, Franklin Lindsey, Edward Barnes, and Paul Garbler. Kwitny concludes that "[p]ending unexpected new evidence of violence, the stay-behind matter seems closed."


Kwitny, Jonathan. The Crimes of Patriots: A True Tale of Dope, Dirty Money, and the CIA. New York: Norton, 1987.

According to Hartung, Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, Jul. 1988, this book "delves into ... the rise and fall of the Australian-based Nugan Hand bank in the second half of the 1970s.... Kwitny ... is scrupulously careful not to stretch his conclusions beyond the available evidence."


Kyle, James H. [COL/USA], and John Robert Eidson. The Guts to Try: The Untold Story of the Iran Hostage Rescue Mission by the On-Scene Desert Commander. New York: Crown, 1990.

According to Surveillant 1.2, Kyle was "responsible for the April 1980 ... Iran rescue mission and was commander at Desert-1, the refueling site 65 miles south of Tehran where a fiery collision put a tragic end to the mission. A good behind-the-scene account of a clandestine military mission." Crear, AIJ 18.1&2, notes that Kyle "provides an excellent explanation of the aviation and weather problems" in the Iran hostage rescue mission.


Kyle, Keith. Suez. London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1992.

Aldrich, I&NS 9.3, finds this to be an Anglocentric account. Its "real strengths ... lie in its ... discussion of SIS and also of black radio." The author's "use of monitoring summaries in following the output of these sort of stations is particularly effective."


Kyodo News. "Spy Satellite Hit by Power Problem." 30 Aug. 2010. [http://www.japantimes.co.jp]

"According to the Cabinet Satellite Intelligence Center, the No. 2 radar satellite, launched in February 2007, appears to be having problems with its power supply and is being examined. The other three spy satellites, all optical satellites, are working to minimize the impact of the malfunctioning satellite, a Defense Ministry source said."


Kyodo News. "U.S. Admits CIA Gave LDP Money in 1950s, 1960s." Japan Times, 20 Jul. 2006. [http://www.japantimes.co.jp]

This report quotes the newly released Foreign Relations of the United States, Vol. XXIX, Part 2, Japan that "[t]he CIA secretly sent money to the Liberal Democratic Party in the 1950s and 1960s to help stabilize the LDP-led government and prevent a leftist administration from emerging... The document ... also suggests that some of the CIA money went to moderate members of the now-defunct Japan Socialist Party, the LDP's rival at the time, apparently to help them form a moderate breakaway."
