Unfortunately, Willoughby was hopelessly incorrect during the Luzon campaign ... [when] the Sixth Army G2 [Col.

On 9 January 2015 the French police "killed the two brothers suspected of massacring 12 people at a Paris newspaper on [7 January 2015] and freed a hostage they had been holding unharmed.... The police also killed another hostage-taker," Amedy Coulibaly, "an associate of the brothers, in a separate assault on a kosher supermarket in Paris." According to a senior police official, "[t]hree hostages were killed and five injured at the market, although it was not immediately clear how many of those may have been shot in the final assault. Five hostages were reported to have been freed unharmed."

The author proposes the following: "Intelligence is the collecting and processing of that information about foreign countries and their agents which is needed by a government for its foreign policy and national security, the conduct of non-attributable activities abroad to facilitate the implementation of foreign policy, and the protection of both process and product, as well as persons and organizations concerned with these, against unauthorized disclosure."

This article is the begin point of the political-side of the controversy that engulfed the CIA's Team A/Team B competitive analysis exercise. It was followed by a New York Times editorial ("Handicapping the Arms Race," 19 Jan. 1977, 34) accusing the Team B members of political motivation in making "worst case" assumptions about Soviet intentions.

The "magnitude and diversity" of the global trade and transportation "system coupled with the permeability of U.S. borders afford numerous avenues to attack American targets. Maritime commerce, and container shipping in particular, provides a highly attractive means not only of delivering weapons but also of smuggling terrorists themselves into the American homeland."

According to Peake, Studies 47.1 (2003), the author "tells the story of ten SOE women who served behind enemy lines.... Some have had their stories told before, but recently released material from the British archives ... has added new details.... Binney includes chapters on training and agent life that provide essential background.... The stories are well told and worth reading." For Bath, NIPQ 20.1, the author gives "a factual and compelling picture" and "helps put in perspective some of the more romanticized accounts of agent activities" published earlier. King, NIPQ 22.4, adds that the book "provides valuable details to well-established histories of the SOE."
