Constantinides: "There is little to hold attention beyond a few interesting war stories on censorship and related matters and fleeting looks at some of the famous figures of the period.... [A]ny contribution of his office to intelligence and economic warfare will not be found here."
Bruce-Briggs, B. "Another Ride on Tricycle." Intelligence and National Security 7, no. 2 (Apr. 1992): 77-100.
The author concludes that the "Hawaiian questions [on Tricycle's questionnaire] did not reflect intended invasion or air attack.... [I]t is clear that Popov did not deliver a credible Pearl Harbor warning." He also takes issue with Tom Troy's contention that the work of British writers on the subject constitutes an "attack on Hoover." See Troy, "The British Assault on J. Edgar Hoover: The Tricycle Case." International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 3.2 (Summer 1989): 169-209.

1. "Aufklärung und Abwehr: The Lasting Legacy of the Stasi under Ernst Wollweber." Intelligence and National Security 21, no. 3 (Jun. 2006): 364-393.
Wollweber headed the Stasi during the "decisive years" of 1953-1957. The author concludes that "[a]s early as the 1950s, we see that the foreign espionage branch of the Stasi was so tightly integrated into domestic surveillance and the regional structures of the Stasi that it was not as 'ordinary' an intelligence gathering branch as its former officers would have us believe."

Adams, IJI&C 24.4 (Winter 2011-2012), warns readers "not [to] be misled by the title": this is not "a revelatory exposition or a full picture" of the East German security apparatus. It focuses on "merely two of the 217 former district offices in the GDR." Nevertheless, the work is "[b]ased on meticulaous research" and provides "a fluent analysis."

Bruce, Ian. "Serbs Used CIA Phone to Call in Convoy Raid." Herald (London), 20 Apr. 1999. [http://www.theherald.co.uk]
"The refugees targeted by mistake in the NATO raid involving the US Air Force [on 14 April 1999] died because ... the fatal strike was called in by the Serbs using a mobile phone and security identification codes supplied to a KLA 'spotter' by the CIA. The man is believed to have been captured early last week and tortured into telling what he knew.... Intelligence sources said last night that a joint CIA-US special forces group operating out of the eastern Bosnian town of Tuzla is running a group of KLA agents inside Kosovo. These men are tasked with reporting the location and movements of all Serb troops and police units via mobile phones."

"Britain is playing a key role in the hunt for Osama bin Laden ... via the top-secret electronic spy base at Menwith Hill in Yorkshire. Every phone call, fax, internet and microwave transmission in or out of Afghanistan is being monitored by the site's joint UK-US Echelon surveillance system to try to locate bin Laden and his closest lieutenants."

The problem of leaks of classified information "is worse now than ever before, given the scope and seriousness of leaks coupled with the power of electronic dissemination and search engines.... Unless comprehensive measures with teeth [emphasis in original] are taken to identify and hold leakers and their publishing collaborators accountable for the significant, often irreversible, damage that they inflict on vital US intelligence capabilities, the damage will continue unabated."

As David Kahn points out in an "Editor's Note" to this article, the destruction of the Prussian-German military archives in World War II leaves a substantial void ("missing link") in cryptologic history. The author has exploited the existing files of the Bavarian Sixth Army to fill at least a portion of the void.

Bruemmer was CIA General Counsel from 1988 to 1990. Here, he looks at the relationship between the President and Congress with regard to the possible reorganization of the intelligence community. He concludes that Congress should play a circumspect role in such matters.
