Newman, Alex. "China's Growing Spy Threat." The Diplomat, 19 Sep. 2011. []

"The Chinese government's 'vacuum cleaner' approach to espionage is worrying foreign governments, companies and overseas dissidents. They're right to be concerned."

Newman, John. Oswald and the CIA. New York: Carroll & Graf, 1995.

Marjorie and Harry Mahoney, IJI&C 9.3, argue that the author "has done meticulous research on files released" by the CIA, "but has reached an erroneous conclusion. Unfortunately, this "is a book of implication and innuendo run amok.... Authoritative sources ... have repeatedly stated that the CIA had no operational interest in Oswald. He cannot, therefore, be tied in to any conspiracy theory involving the agency."

On the other hand, Namebase finds Newman's thesis more congenial than the Mahoneys: "Newman paints a picture of 'Oswald the file,' as opposed to 'Oswald the man.'... [T]here was significant interest [at the CIA] in Oswald prior to the assassination. There are also bizarre holes in this interest, suggesting that Oswald was being manipulated by CIA counterintelligence." Surveillant 4.4/5 suggests that conspiracy buffs will love this book, while those of a non-conspiratorial bent can save themselves "time spent with this long conspiracy research venture."

For Kaiser, I&NS 12.4, "Newman's book is more a series of vignettes and questions tha[n] a fully coherent argument." Newman does make clear, however, that Oswald "was far from unknown to American intelligence agencies." The focus of the book is on what American intelligence knew about Oswald; and the author "makes no effort to explain the assassination of the President, and consistently refers to Oswald as Kennedy's 'alleged assassin.'"

Although the basic thrust is about the U.S. submarine fleet generally, this article includes substantial discussion of the surveillance and other covert activities engaged in by submarines. "Today the chief missions are surveillance of surface ships and coastal regions, attacking land targets with cruise missiles, and protecting aircraft carriers from undersea threats such as mines and short-range diesel-electric submarines. Subs eavesdrop on radio traffic, drop off and retrieve teams of Navy SEAL special-operation forces, shadow drug traffickers -- any mission that requires stealth and silence. "

Report on efforts to use special operations forces to capture "persons indicted for war crimes" (PIFWCs) in Bosnia. "[F]or at least the past year, a U.S. special operations task force has been conducting one of the broadest covert operations since the Vietnam War, gathering intelligence on PIFWCs and helping to seize them in a series of raids."

Two of the Air Force's four E-8C JSTARS (Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System) airplanes are now flying in the Kosovo theater of operations. Serbian tactics of intermixing military and civilian vehicles and the rugged terrain have reduced the effectiveness of the JSTARS' cloud-penetrating radar.

Giangreco, NWCR, Spring 1998: "Newman convincingly shreds the myths that have grown up around the use of nuclear weapons to end the Pacific War, such as the oft-repeated claims that the Japanese were on the verge of surrender when the bombs were dropped, and that their use was primarily aimed at intimidating Joseph Stalin."

Newmann, William W. Managing National Security Policy: The President and the Process. Pittsburgh: University of Pittsburgh Press, 2003.

According to Mulcahy, Perspectives on Politics 2.2 (Jun. 2004), the author uses "in-depth case studies of the making of arms-control policy in the Carter, Reagan, and Bush administrations in order to elucidate the formulation and development of their decision-making organizations.... Newmann has provided a particularly good elaboration of the dynamic structures of the advisory process."
