Studeman, Mike [CDR/USN]. "7 Myths of Intelligence." U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings 135, no. 2 (Feb. 2009): 64-69.

The author argues that "[t]he Navy cannot afford to harbor myths about America's intelligence community at a time when awareness and decision superiority are so critical." He discusses the following myths: (1) intelligence is of marginal value unless it is actionable; (2) intelligence is basically secret information; (3) intelligence is produced exclusively from classified sources; (4) all I need from intelligence is a smart box; men-in-the-loop only impede and delay access to intelligence; (5) intelligence experiences more failures than successes; (6) ONI is more focused on national rather that Fleet interests; (7) successful operations-intelligence integration primarily involves intelligence getting in tune with warfighters.

Studeman, W.O., Sumner Shapiro, J.L. Butts, and T.A. Brooks. "Release Pollard at the Nation's Peril." Washington Post, 12 Dec. 1998, A23.

"We, who are painfully familiar with the case, feel obligated to go on record with the facts regarding Pollard in order to dispel the myths that have arisen from this clever public relations campaign aimed at transforming Pollard from greedy, arrogant betrayer of the American national trust into Pollard, committed Israeli patriot.... A presidential grant of clemency or pardon in this or any other espionage case -- regardless of the foreign government involved and irrespective of the claimed ideological motivation -- would be totally irresponsible from a national security standpoint....

"The authors are retired Navy admirals, each of whom served as director of naval intelligence during the period between 1978 and 1991."
