"Sources tell TIME that U.S. special forces have been moving in and out of Afghanistan for three years now looking for bin Laden. Recently, the activity has been stepped up. But they face the challenge of capturing a man who knows the terrain, has dozens of hideouts and is surrounded by loyal followers."

Ramsbotham, David [Sir]. "Analysis and Assessment for Peacekeeping Operations." Intelligence and National Security 10, no. 4 (Oct. 1995): 162-174.

The author examines "the role of intelligence analysis and assessment in support of peacekeeping operations in a changing world." He focuses on what he perceives to be the intelligence needs of the United Nations in three types of peacekeeping missions: "preventive action, conflict resolution (whether traditional peacekeeping or peace enforcement), and post conflict reconstruction (or peace-building)."


Ramsey, Diane M., and Mark S. Boerner. "A Study in Indications Methodology." Studies in Intelligence 7, no. 3 (Summer 1963): 75-94.

Discusses "an experiment in quantitative differentiation of indicator patterns." The authors recommend further analysis and a broadening the research elements. Quibble, Studies 7.4 (Fall 1963), points to a logical inconsistency in one of the authors' interpretations of a graphic representation. The authors, Studies 7.4 (Fall 1963), acknowledge the problem, as well as two other inconsistencies.


Ramsey, Edwin P., and Stephen J. Rivele. Lieutenant Ramsey's War: From Horse Soldier to Guerrilla Commander. Washington, DC: Brassey's, 1996.

From publisher: "After leading the last cavalry charge in U.S. history during the fall of the Philippines in 1942, Lt. Ed Ramsey joined the Filipino resistance and rose to command more than 40,000 guerrillas.... Lieutenant Ramsey's War chronicles a remarkable true story of courage and perseverance." Crerar, AIJ 16.2/3, calls this "a classic, worthy of being placed next to T.E. Lawrence's Seven Pillars of Wisdom."

Rand, Paul. Conspiracy of One: Tyler Kent's Secret Plot against FDR, Churchill, and the Allied War Effort. Guilford, CT: Lyons Press, 2013.

As noted by Peake, Studies 57.4 (Dec. 2013), this is not the first book about Kent (see Bearse and Read, Conspirator), "but it is the first based on Kent's personal papers and on interviews with some of the participants and their descendants. Thus Rand has added details about MI5's role and suspicions that Kent's Russian émigré mistress was a Soviet agent."

Iraqi Arabs connected to a CIA-supported opposition to Saddam Hussein have been thrown into disarray by the Iraqi Army's move into the Kurdish areas of northern Iraq.

Christine Large has been dismissed as director of the trust that runs Bletchley Park. "Prominent in the move to oust Mrs Large was Tony Sale, a former MI5 officer, who was removed as museums director at Bletchley Park some months ago. Mr Sale, the brains behind the rebuilding at Bletchley of Colossus,... said the majority felt 'driven to drastic action'.... Mr Sale said long-serving trustees felt that 'the commercial side is beginning to squeeze out the heritage.'"

"After the Americans reoccupied [Philadelphia], and before she was nineteen, Peggy [Shippen] married Military Governor Benedict Arnold and helped him to plot the boldest treason in American history.... Peggy Shippen was, new research reveals, the highest-paid spy of the American Revolution.... [S]he actively engaged in the Arnold conspiracy at every step."

"[T]he DHS Intelligence enterprise (DHS IE) consists of I&A [Office of Intelligence and Analysis], two headquarters elements supported by I&A, and the intelligence elements of six DHS operational components: U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), and U.S. Secret Service (USSS)....

"This report provides an overview of DHS IE both at headquarters and within the components. It examines how DHS IE is organized and supports key departmental activities to include homeland security analysis and threat warning; border security; critical infrastructure protection; and support to, and the sharing of information with, state, local, tribal, and private sector partners. It also discusses several oversight challenges and options for Congress to consider on these issues."

"Reasonable individuals can differ ... with respect to the question of whether HSINT [homeland security intelligence] is another collection discipline, or whether homeland security is simply another purpose for which the current set of collection disciplines is being harnessed.... This report provides a potential conceptual model of how to frame HSINT, including geographic, structural/statutory, and holistic approaches. Given that state, local, tribal, and private sector officials play such an important role in HSINT, the holistic model, one not constrained by geography or levels of government, strikes many as the most compelling. The report argues that there is, in effect, a Homeland Security Intelligence Community (HSIC)."

The author seeks to apply formal logic to defining what intelligence is.

Ranieri, Thomas F. "Adapting U.S. Military Intelligence to Network Warfare." American Intelligence Journal 29, no. 1 (2011): 37-46.

"One of the most vital steps to a new approach toward warfare must be a reformation of the U.S. military intelligence paradigm. Military intelligence must adopt a ground-level, decentralized approach, which emphasizes seamless integration into all military action and takes a full spectrum approach to intelligence gathering and dissemination."
