"[W]hile most of the modifications" to the previous balance between privacy interests and national security concerns "will not pose a significant threat [to privacy interests], two of them may. Namely, potentially allowing FISA to be used to circumvent Title III intercept order requirements may unnecessarily put nonterrorists at risk of being investigated and prosecuted as terrorists. Similarly, allowing roving surveillance to be conducted pursuant to FISA may result in the interception of numerous innocent conversations, many of which will probably involve innocent American citizens."
Henderson, Paul. Unlikely Spy: An Autobiography. London: Bloomsbury, 1993.
Surveillant 3.4/5 says this is an "explosive document filled with revelations about the secret and often back-biting workings of British intelligence services and the UK government." The author is the former managing director of Matrix Churchill (machine tool manufacturer). For West, WIR 14.1, Henderson's story is "a grotesque catalogue of betrayal and a caution to those who are attracted to espionage.... Henderson is bitter, but he is likely to be vindicated when Lord Justice Scott releases his report in October 1995."
According to Miller, I&NS 9.3, this "is an accurate account" and "a remarkably restrained and dignified one." Rathmell, I&NS 9.3, notes that Henderson was "prosecuted in 1992 ... for breaking export regulations.... The trial collapsed after the defense was able to show that the trade had been authorized by the British government." Henderson is "an angry man" who "feels betrayed." He "provides useful insights into British industrial espionage practices, the relations between Western firms and Saddam's Iraq, and Iraq's efforts to develop a military-industrial base.... [The] writing style is often laborious."

Goulden, Washington Times, 30 Mar. 2011, and Intelligencer 18.3 (Summer-Fall 2011), finds it "ironic that the careless, even reckless, use of cellphones [by the CIA team in Milan] led to one of the worst operational fiascoes" in years. The author's ability to use public records to identify many of those involved is "a damning indictment of CIA tradecraft." To Fiffer, Chicago Tribune, 22 Sep. 2010, this is a "skillfully crafted, highly disturbing account of the officially sanctioned actions of U.S. operatives." Chapman, IJI&C 24.3 (Fall 2011), says that Hendricks's "circuitous, but thorough, detailing of the facts presents a dramatic examination of a badly conceived operation."

"Le Monde and Europe 1 radio [on 4 November 1998] quoted a secret report by the DST counter-intelligence agency saying Major Pierre Bunel divulged a 25-page plan for possible NATO air strikes against Yugoslavia.... [The DST report] also said Bunel admitted to meeting [a] Yugoslav agent four times between July and October 1998 and answering questions about the number of NATO aircraft earmarked for strikes, the targets and dates chosen, France's position on the strikes and the possibility of a ground force deployment in Kosovo."

Shayler told a French court on 21 October 1998 that "he made public classified material because he 'simply wanted to say that taxpayers' money had been used to kill innocent civilians.'" The court was debating whether Shayler "had committed a 'political crime' - and whether he could be sent back to Britain to face charges under the Official Secrets Act."

The Cold War experience "formed the senior figures in the British intelligence community who were at the top when catastrophe struck on 11 September 2001, during the run-up to the Iraq War of 2003 and the inquests which followed." It now falls to those same leaders "to implement the reforms to the British intelligence process which were announced by Jack Straw, the Foreign and Commonwealth Secretary, on 23 March 2005."

Peake, Studies 53.4 (Dec. 2009), notes that the authors "cover in great detail the origins of the service and the many espionage and counterterrorism cases -- mainly 'The Troubles' in Ireland -- with which it has been involved.... Perhaps inevitably in a work of this magnitude, a few errors have crept in.... Other shortcomings are its very small print and narrow margins ... and a grossly inadequate index." Nevertheless, the book "offers a comprehensive view of MI5's early years. There is plenty of material here to stimulate the scholarly research necessary to judge its accuracy."

Commenting on numbers 3 and 4 above, Peake, Studies 55.4 (Dec. 2011) and Intelligencer 19.1 (Winter-Spring 2012), is unhappy with both the lack of citations and the absence of an index. Nonetheless, the summaries of the major World Warr II Double Cross System cases in the 1939-1945 volume "are more thorough than those found in any of the so-called intelligence encyclopedias and are mostly based on primary sources in the British National Archives....
"The limits on the value of the 19452009 volume are even more severe. Many important cases are not even mentioned; those that are receive less-than-comprehensive treatment.... This volume relies on fewer primary sources and more secondary ones, some of which have problems with accuracy." In what qualifies as the ultimate put-down. the reviewer concludes that "[w]hile these volumes may be a place to start when studying MI5 history, Wikipedia is probably an equally good alternative."
Hennigan, W.J. "New Generation of Unmanned Spy Planes Is Being Tested." Los Angeles Times, 11 Jan. 2011. [http://www.latimes.com]
The Global Observer, "[a]n experimental spy plane with a wingspan almost the size of a Boeing 747's[,] took to the skies over the Mojave Desert last week in a secret test flight that may herald a new era in modern warfare with robotic planes flying higher, faster and with more firepower." The UAV can fly for days at 65,000 feet, and "is built to survey 280,000 square miles ... at a single glance."
Two other drones will be tested at at Edwards Air Force Base in coming weeks: "the bat-winged X-47B..., which could carry laser-guided bombs and be launched from an aircraft carrier" and the "Phantom Ray drone that could slip behind enemy lines to knock out radar installations."
