Tarancon, Alicia. "Army's All-Seeing, Super Blimp Makes Debut Flight." CNN, 10 Aug. 2012. [http://security.blogs.cnn.com]

"The U.S. Army has launched the debut flight of its massive Long Endurance Multi-Intelligence Vehicle (LEMV), a souped-up blimp designed to fly continuously for 21 days and provide full surveillance of an area. The LEMV was launched [on 7 August 2012,] from Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey. The test flight lasted about 90 minutes. The all-seeing airship is longer than football field and taller than a seven-story building, according to maker Northrop Grumman."

Interview with "Viktor Budanov, a former chief of the KGB's Directorate K. The Directorate K, one of several sub-directorates within the First Chief Directorate (external intelligence) of the KGB, was disbanded following the August 1991 events."

Tarrant, V.E. The Red Orchestra: Soviet Spy Network Inside Nazi Germany. London: Arms & Armour Press, 1995. New York: Wiley, 1996.

According to Surveillant 4.3, this study of the Soviet spy network "gives equal weight to all three apparats -- the Grand Chef's Western circuit in France, Belgium, and Holland; the Berlin network[;] and Die Rote Drei in Switzerland. Many of the myths perpetuated by earlier accounts are destroyed." For Aldrich, I&NS 11.3, Tarrant has identified and even resolved "some of the contradictions, deceptions and significant omissions abounding in the ... memoir literature" on the subject. However, he engages in hyperbole in his overly positive assessment of the value of the Red Orchestra.

McGinnis, Cryptolog, Summer 1996, notes that this is an "old subject" but "with much new material"; the book is "[w]orth reading even if you are familiar with the operation." Kruh, Cryptologia 21.2, finds that Tarrant "gives a fresh perspective to military intelligence in World War II," while Friedman, Parameters, Summer 1997, comments that "The Red Orchestra could serve as a comprehensive textbook of clandestine intelligence operations for anyone seeking to improve his or her knowledge in this area."


Tart, Larry, and Robert Keefe. The Price of Vigilance: Attacks on American Surveillance Flights. New York: Ballantine, 2001.

Jonkers, AFIO WIN 25-01 (24 Jun. 2001), views this as an "excellent book that fills a hole in the literature of Cold War -- and still ongoing -- intelligence reconnaissance missions." The authors, former crew members on airborne electronic surveillance missions, bring "to life the risks and sacrifices, the diplomatic furor that erupted after shootdowns, the grief and frustration of the families. The centerpiece is the shootdown of the USAF C130 over Armenia in 1958, with no survivors."

For Bath, NIPQ 17.4, the authors also provide "a helpful compendium of attacks o[n] US Navy and Air Force reconnaissance aircraft in the 1950s and 1960s." The book is "somewhat lengthy and highly detailed," but "there is much to appeal ... to those intrigued by the history of airborne SIGINT."


Tass. "Russian Officer Convicted for Espionage in Favour of Georgia." 16 Oct. 2009. [http://www.itar-tass.com]

On 16 October 2009, the North Caucasian district court martial sentenced Sergeant Major Dzhemal Nakaidze "to nine years of imprisonment in a maximum-security penal colony for espionage in favour of Georgia.... The investigators established that Nakaidze's spying had lasted from July 9 to November 25, 2008."

Tate, Julie. "CIA's Brain Drain: Since 9/11, Some Top Officials Have Moved to Private Sector." Washington Post, 12 Apr. 2011. [http://www.washingtonpost.com]

In the decade since 9/11, "private intelligence firms and security consultants have peeled away veterans from the top reaches of the CIA, hiring scores of longtime officers in large part to gain access to the burgeoning world of intelligence contracting."


Tatum, Georgia Lee. Disloyalty in the Confederacy. Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 1934. [Reprint] New York: AMS Press, 1970.

This book looks at the subversion activities of dissident Southerners, including organizations such as the Peace and Constitutional Society, the Heroes of America, and the Peace Society. While their activities were generally focused on undermining the Confederate war effort, the relationships between these societies and Union intelligence is unclear.
