Mucciolo, Aaron. "Less Interesting Than '60 Minutes': Recent NSA Releases Add Little to the U.S.S. Liberty Debate." Strategic Insights 3, no. 3 (Mar. 2004). []

"The NSA releases ... provide an incomplete picture of the attack. There are no transcripts or recordings of any communications before or during the attack and nothing from the Israeli boats at the scene. Furthermore, sections of these declassified documents are ... whited out in the transcripts and deleted from the audio. Some of these deletions seem to be references to communication channel numbers and other data that should remain classified, but at points entire paragraphs are missing." For the NSA releases see


Mudd, Philip. Takedown: Inside the Hunt for Al Qaeda. Philadelphia, PA: University of Pennsylvania Press, 2013.

Peake, Studies 57.4 (Dec. 2013), says the author provides "an absorbing account, from a senior analyst's point of view, of the CIA and its efforts to combat al-Qaeda and conduct the war on terror." Mudd also "served for several years as the deputy director" of the FBI's National Security Branch.

Mueller, Michael. Canaris: The Life and Death of Hitler’s Spymaster. London: Chatham Publishing, 2007.

Peake, Studies 51.4 (2007), notes that the author's "description of Canaris’s life and career -- especially his role in the resistance to Hitler that cost him his life -- though interesting, adds nothing new." For Kahn, I&NS 23.2 (Apr. 2008), this is "a solid study" that rightly rejects the idea of a Canaris-Menzies meeting.


Mueller, Robert S., III. "Congressional Testimony: Statement of Robert S. Mueller, III, Director, Federal Bureau of Investigation Before the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary, July 27, 2005." Available at:

The FBI Director addresses a range of issues concerning his organization. He begins with the President's announcement of the creation of an intelligence service within the FBI (National Security Branch), an amalgam of the Bureau's Directorate of Intelligence, Counterterrorism Division, and Counterintelligence Division. He also discusses "three areas that directly impact the success of this new intelligence service: our Language Program, our Information Technology capabilities, and our ability to recruit, hire, train, and retain the expertise we need to build this service."

Mulcahy, Kevin V. "The Bush Administration and National Security Policymaking: A Preliminary Assessment." International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 4, no. 2 (Summer 1990): 167-180.

The author describes President George H.W. Bush's policymaking style as "managerial, collegial, incremental, and pragmatic.... President Bush seems content to manage events as they arise rather than to shape alternatives and fine-tune the changes in national security policy required by the openness in East-West relations."

Mulgan, John. Report on Experience: A Memoir on the Allies War. London: Oxford University Press, 1985. Baltimore, MD: Frontline, 2010.

According to Gilbert,, 14 Jul. 2010, the author was a New Zealander parachuted by SOE into occupied Greece. Mulgan "writes well of his time in the Greek mountains, and makes the good point that for those engaged in partisan activities the risks were relatively small: the Germans rarely ventured into the mountains, and when they did the highly mobile partisans had time to slip away to safer areas. It was the local peasants who suffered."

Mulley, Clare. The Spy Who Loved: The Secrets and Lives of Christine Granville, Britain's First Female Special Agent of WWII. London: Macmillan, 2012.

Jones, Telegraph (London), 3 Jul. 2012, finds this to be a "compulsively readable biography" of Krystyna Skarbek, aka Christine Granville. Originally recruited by MI6, Granville joined SOE and parachuted into France where she worked with the "Jockey" resistance network. For her exploits, Granville was awarded an OBE, but died forgotten in a cheap London hotel in 1952 at the hand of a stalker. This is a "dogged piece of detective work"on the author's part. For Peake, Studies 57.1 (Mar. 2013), and Intelligencer 20.1 (Spring-Summer 2013), this book "is very well documented and a pleasure to read." See also, Masson, Christine (1975).
