Croddy, Eric. "Dealing with Al Shifa: Intelligence and Counterproliferation." International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 15, no. 1 (Spring 2002): 52-60

The missile attack on the Al Shifa pharmaceutical facility in Khartoum, Sudan, "highlights the difficulties and challenges when it comes to intelligence gathering and analysis when seeking to detect chemical or biological weapons production.... [T]he contrary, misinformed, and confused nature of the Clinton administration's attempts to justify its actions only created more doubt in both American and international public opinion."

Crossland, John. "British Spies in Plot to Save Tsar." Sunday Times (London), 15 Oct. 2006. [http://www.timesonline.co.uk]

The newly discovered "diary of Captain Stephen Alley, second in command of the British intelligence mission in Petrograd[,]... shows he positioned four undercover agents ready to extract ... the deposed Tsar Nicholas II and the Russian imperial family" from the house in Ekaterinburg where they were being held. Nicholas' wife, Alexandra, was Queen Victoria's granddaughter. The diary was found accidentally by Alley's "descendants in a trunk of his papers and will be featured in Queen Victoria’s Grandchildren, a documentary to be shown ... in December."

Crosswell, Daniel K.R.

1. The Chief of Staff: The Military Career of General Walter Bedell Smith. Westport, CT: Greenwood, 1991.

Peake, Studies, 55.3 (Sep. 2011), notes this work is based on the author's doctoral dissertation and presents Smith as "Eisenhower's tough consigliere and an All-American boy, a characterization Crosswell came to regret -- it was too uncritical."

2. Beetle: The Life of General Walter Bedell Smith. Lexington, KY: University Press of Kentucky, 2010.

For Peake, Studies, 55.3 (Sep. 2011), this second biography of Smith by the author "is an absorbing book" that is "[e]xtensively documented." It is "a weighty contribution" to World War II history. Nevertheless, "[t]he chapter on Smith's three-year tenure as DCI is of mixed quality" and contains errors, specifically concerning Philby, Burgess, and Maclean. Crane, Parameters 41.2 (Summer 2011), finds that while "[t]he general narrative ... will be familiar to those who have read the earlier biography,... most of the coverage has been significantly enriched with more detail and added research."

MI 21.3: This book about the role of Nisei in World War II includes discussion of the achievements of the 100th/442d Regimental Combat Team and the role Nisei played in military intelligence. "Crost puts names to deeds as she traces the contribution of Nisei to winning the war in the Pacific." She "brings to life" personal stories of "these unsung military intelligence soldiers."

Crowdy, Terry. The Enemy Within: A History of Espionage. New York and Wellingborough, UK: Osprey, 2006.

Publishers Weekly (via Amazon.com) defines this work as a "survey of espionage from ancient times to America's invasion of Iraq.... [It] is a work of narrative and anecdote rather than analysis, and succeeds within that context." Peake, Studies 51.3 (2007), finds "little new in the book.... Crowdy uses mostly secondary sources and he pays the usual price: doubtful assertions and unforced errors."

Crowley, Michael. "So, Who Can We Kill?" Time, 1 Apr. 2013, 20-24.

"During the 2012 campaign, Obama's use of drones to kill terrorists without risking the lives of U.S. troops was a bragging point. But in the months since, his drone war has turned from asset to headache.... Now Washington is rethinking some of its basic assumptions about the drone war. Congress and the White House are discussing ways to bring new legal clarity to targeted killing."
