John "Frenchy" Grombach created the Pond in early 1942 and keep it operational for the next 13 years. The organization "spent most of its existence not as a government agency, but as a private sector organization, operating within real companies.... [footnote omitted] This practice contributed substantially to obscurity and security. However, three successive government agencies found that having such an independent intelligence operation -- and, worse yet, one run by a pugnacious, conspiratorial ideologue -- was more trouble than it was worth.... [T]he Pond's independence allowed it to play one American agency off against another, in this case particularly the FBI and the CIA. The Pond's exclusive ownership of its product meant that Grombach could disseminate to the FBI or other agencies information that the CIA might have been able to determine was bad."
