"In an exclusive interview with Inside Cover, former UNSCOM weapons inspector Scott Ritter said on [11 October 1999] that he doubts Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein has launched a West Nile virus bio-terror attack on New York City.... Ritter said: 'The Iraqis did do work on vaccines for a variety of things like West Nile encephalitis. But that was a standard protective measure. There's no evidence that they ever tried to convert that into an offensive program.'"

Kruh, Cryptologia 22.2, declares that this encyclopedia, with over 550 entries, is "a fascinating introduction to the world of cryptology" and "an excellent volume" for the personal libraries of even experienced cryptologists.


Newton, Jim. Eisenhower: The White House Years. New York: Doubleday, 2011.

Gage, Washington Post, 2 Dec. 2011, finds this to be "an engaging if conflicted work of presidential history, with the author torn between putting Eisenhower on a pedestal and tearing him back down.... Eisenhower amassed a troubling record ... on covert action, arguably his most innovative strategy for fighting the Cold War.... It is unclear how deeply Eisenhower was involved in planning these missions. Newton shows nonetheless that the president heartily approved of such activity, both as a military man who enjoyed a logistical challenge and as a political leader eager to avoid direct nuclear confrontation with the Soviet Union."

For Reeve, Los Angeles Times, 9 Oct. 2011, "Newton's book is thorough and reasonable.... Particularly in the early years of his presidency, Ike ... became foolishly enamored with the efficacy of covert action. It seemed to be war on the cheap." Smith, Christian Science Monitor, 4 Oct. 2011, says that this work "amounts to little more than a love letter to the man who occupied the Oval Office from 1953 to 1961.... Eisenhower was the president to begin the awful practice of employing the CIA to overthrow foreign governments."


Newton, Polly. "Agent Lecturer Travelled on Stasi False Passport." Telegraph (London), 20 Sep. 1999. []

To Kerr, I&NS 9.1, the title is a "rather odd choice" since the book is largely about Maclean. This is a "very worthy effort," but is "flawed in both conception and execution.... [He] reduces the motives of three very different individuals into just one disreputable motive: they became Soviets agents because they were impelled by an addiction to the drug of deceit."

Hao Fengjun, "granted a protection visa in Australia after backing claims of a spy network there," has been denied entry to New Zealand because of the lack of a proper entry visa. Hao, "who claims to be a defector from the Chinese National Security Bureau and former member of a spy agency known as 610 Office," has said that "he would reveal details of espionage in New Zealand."
