"[T]he intelligence priorities of the 21st century constitute a difficult targeting challenge for [NRO satellite] systems that were optimal for Cold War era spying.... The insurgents aligned against the U.S. in its ongoing combat operations pose, in many ways, a more difficult reconnaissance challenge than the one faced by reconnaissance pioneers....
"The key lessons [from the past] for national reconnaissance leadership to consider are: cooperation between government and its industry partners helped leverage success; a strong industrial base is essential for knowledge and production; access to leadership at the highest levels can garner the support for research and development that increases the chances for program success; leaders and scientists must rekindle the creative spark; and risk is integral to achieving technological breakthroughs."

Carson, WPNWE, 3 Apr. 2000, is unimpressed by the author's contention that the FBI's surveillance of Lennon succeeded in neutralizing him as a spokesman for dissent. Nonetheless, Lennon himself is not the focus of Weiner's book; rather, the story is about the effort to get Lennon's files from the FBI and how that shows the tenacity of government secrecy.

Constantinides notes that the basic premise of this work seems to be in error, as "Robin," the organizer of the Juggler Resistance network, was not Jacques Weil, as identified by the author, but Jean Worms.
