Petersen comments that this work was "[s]ponsored by German Democratic Republic." Brandt's NameBase review says that "Mader paints with a broad brush. He admits ... that his listings include former OSS, military intelligence (even during WW2), State Department personnel who have done 'work for CIA,' FBI counterintelligence, and also the occasional politician who sat on this or that intelligence committee. Generally when Mader includes a name, it's merely an indication that Mader found this person interesting for one reason or another, and further research and corroboration is needed before any conclusions can be drawn."

This review article of Johnson's Shootdown is better than the book itself. Maertens supports the strong conclusion that "Johnson has manipulated and distorted the evidence beyond recognition."

Butenko was a Soviet diplomat who defected to Mussolini's Italy in 1938. It is this choice that differentiates Butenko from other Soviet defectors of the period.

Maffeo, Steven E. Most Secret and Confidential: Intelligence in the Age of Nelson. Annapolis, MD: U.S. Naval Institute Press, 2000. London: Chatham, 2000.

Bath, NIPQ, Summer 2001, recommends Maffeo's work. The author "illustrates the role of the commander as an intelligence officer through examples drawn mainly from the life of Lord Nelson and focusing on his use of intelligence against the Danish fleet in the Battle of Copenhagen in 1801 and against Napoleon's French Mediterranean forces in the Battle of the Nile in 1798."

For Meilinger, Aerospace Power Journal (Winter 2000), "one of the more enlightening discussions" was the author's "description of how sparse and small the typical commander's staff was and, therefore, how personality-dependent ... intelligence operations were at the close of the eighteenth century." He concludes that Most Secret and Confidential "is a fascinating and rewarding account."

Brooks, Studies 11 (Fall-Winter 2001) and NIPQ 18.2/3, calls this an "exquisitely researched and documented book.... Although scholarly, [it] is engagingly written, and the subject will fascinate anyone who has an abiding interest in the role of intelligence in support of command and, indeed, the role of intelligence in shaping history."

"Beginning in the early 1990s, the ISA invested a great deal of effort into developing a communication response that was proportional to the challenges presented by critical events.This was manifested through media briefings, appointing a semi-formal spokesperson, issuing press releases, and creating a Website."

The Cox Committee report "builds a largely circumstantial but overwhelming case for the claim that China has gained crucial design information for all of the U.S. nuclear arsenal ... -- yet, the report sticks close to its mandate in avoiding sweeping judgments on the significance of these losses."

Controversy erupts on campus over ties between the Rochester Institute of Technology and the CIA. RIT President Richard Rose's April-June sabbatical at the CIA seems to have been the spark. The discussion centers around the CIA's role in RIT's program in imaging science. See also, Jean A. Douthwright, "Rochester Institute of Technology: A CIA Subsidiary?"

NRO Director, retired Air Force Gen. Bruce Carlson, said at the Geo-Int conference that the agency "has work to do to regain the confidence of Congress.... Carlson said he had intimate knowledge of the failed process [of the development of the future imagery architecture], having served on the joint chiefs of staff as the director for force structure, resources and assessment in the early part of the decade when the program was being developed."
