Khalsa, Sundri. Forecasting Terrorism: Indicators and Proven Analytic Techniques. Lanham, MD: Scarecrow, 2004.
Peake, Studies 50.3 (Sep. 2006) and Intelligencer 15.2 (Fall-Winter 2006-2007), notes that the author, a U.S. Air Force captain "wrote this book while attending the Joint Military Intelligence College and working as a DIA analyst." Khalsa suggests that the "solution to the forecasting problem ... is a structured, computerized methodology.... [A] CD is provided that illustrates the procedures in the text. The quality of the CD is not good and that does not help when trying to follow the often complicated instructions in the book.... Khalsa has developed an interesting approach to forecasting acts of terror but it needs considerable real-world testing and refinement before its operational value can be assessed."

"Fifteen militants were killed early [19 July 2014] when an American drone struck a compound in the Pakistani tribal region of North Waziristan, according to local residents and a security official. It was the fourth known drone strike in the region since Pakistan launched a military operation there last month."

"Ending a five-month hiatus," the CIA "resumed its drone campaign in Pakistan on [11 June 2014] with a missile strike that killed at least four people at a compound in the tribal district of North Waziristan, Pakistani officials said."
Declan Walsh and Ismail Khan, "U.S. Drone Hits Pakistan for 2nd Time in 12 Hours," New York Times, 13 Jun. 2014, A6, reports a second U.S. drone strike on a militant compound in Pakistan's tribal area on 12 June 2014. The strike reportedly killed "at least 10 suspected members of the Haqqani network."

Khan, Ismail, and Declan Walsh. "U.S. Drone Strike Kills 6 in Pakistani Tribal Area." New York Times, 6 Aug. 2014. [http://www.nytimes.com]
A U.S. drone strike in the North Waziristan tribal district on 6 August 2014 "killed at least six people, Pakistani officials and local residents said. It was the latest in a series of strikes by C.I.A.-operated drone aircraft to coincide with a major offensive by the Pakistani military in the area."
Khokhlov, Nikolai Y. In the Name of Conscience: The Testament of a Soviet Secret Agent. New York: David McKay, 1959. London: Muller, 1960.
According to Pforzheimer, Khokhlov was an MVD officer who defected in 1954 while on assignment to assassinate an anti-Soviet emigre. Khokhlov was unhappy with his handling by U.S. intelligence officials. Constantinides notes that the author devotes less time to "organization and practices" than he does to his personal thought processes.
Khristoforov, Vasilii S., et al. Lubyanka in the Days of the Battle for Moscow: Materials from the Organs of State Security SSSR from the Central Archive FSB Russia. Moscow: Izdatel'skii dom "Zvonnitsa-MG," 2002.
According to Fischer, Studies 48.2 (2004), this work documents the role of the People's Commissariat of Internal Affairs (NKVD) "in staving off Hitler's attempt to capture Moscow during October-November 1941.... NKVD paramilitary detachments played a vital, perhaps critical, role in the defense of Moscow by slowing down the Nazi war machine,... and giving ... Gen. Georgy Zhukov time to prepare a defense of the Soviet capital while reinforcements arrived from Siberia.... The editors, it seems, have made an honest and well-meaning effort to set the record straight and fill in some blank spots in their country's convoluted history."
Kidwell, David. "Spy Suspect Defends Calling Cuban Friend." Miami Herald, 25 Feb. 2000. [http://www.herald.com]
Taking the stand at his bond hearing on 24 February 2000, Mariano Faget "admitted he had disclosed government secrets -- but only to save a friend, not to spy for Cuba.... His attempts to minimize his illegal disclosure as an 'error in judgment' didn't convince U.S. Magistrate Barry Garber, who ordered Faget held without bond while he awaits trial."
Kieffer, Scott M. [MAJ/USAF] "Organization of Counterintelligence within the Department of Defense: Synergies with Law Enforcement Agencies." American Intelligence Journal 26, no. 1 (Summer 3008): 67-80.
The author argues for combined CI and law enforcement organizations within the DoD.

1. The Accidental Guerrilla: Fighting Small Wars in the Midst of a Big One. New York: Oxford University Press, 2009.
Giustozzi, Perspectives on Politics 8.3 (Sep. 2010), notes that this book provides the author's "thinking on counterinsurgency up to 2008, with detailed case studies of his own experience in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as shorter discussions of a number of other cases such as East Timor and Indonesia.... The book is not strictly speaking an academic or scholarly text, as it is based to a great extent on the author's own experience. But it is sufficiently thoughful and informed by the literature to be relevant to political scientists."
For Lauterbach, A&SPJ 26.6 (Nov.-Dec. 2012), the author "offers an effective and relevant synthesis of theories of conflict in the contemporary security environment.... [O]ne best sees Kilcullen's work as an introduction to basic principles and a general guide to the conduct and implementation of a COIN strategy."
2. Counterinsurgency. New York: Oxford University Press, 2010.
From publisher: In this work, the author "brings together his most salient writings on this vitally important topic.... Filled with down-to-earth, common-sense insight, this book is the definitive account of counterinsurgency."

For Peake, Studies 58.2 (Jun. 2014), the use of "imaginary dialogue between principals" may make this book on the Culper Ring "easy reading" but it also makes "troubling history." The reviewer's conclusion: "[T]his is Revolutionary War history lite. Read with care." Goulden, Washington Times, 3 Dec. 2013, and Intelligencer 20.2 (Fall-Winter 2013), points to two "major problems": "long stretches of [fictional] dialogue" and "the authors' mind reading at the distance of two centuries."
Kilzer, Louis C. Churchill's Deception: The Dark Secret That Destroyed Nazi Germany. New York, Simon and Schuster, 1994.
According to Cridland, Library Journal (via Amazon.com), the author "argues that Churchill maneuvered Hitler into attacking the USSR by using the Secret Intelligence Service to lure Rudolf Hess to England. A dramatic preface revives the generally discredited claim that the man in Spandau Prison was not Hess; yet Kilzer returns to this point only obliquely in the final chapter.... Not a necessary purchase if one's collection already contains the recent books on the Hess affair."
Kilzer, Louis. Hitler's Traitor: Martin Bormann and the Defeat of the Reich. Novato, CA: Presidio, 2000.
West, IJI&C 14.3, dismisses completely the author's effort to connect Martin Bormann and the Rote Drei's mysterious sources codenamed Werther, Teddy, Anna, and Olga. The reviewer concludes that "this volume is an example of espionage mythology being exacerbated by an almost pervasive determination to circumvent any contrary evidence."
Kim, Young Hum, ed. The Central Intelligence Agency: Problems of Secrecy in a Democracy. Lexington, MA: Heath, 1968.
Constantinides notes that this relatively brief (108 pages) compendium contains items written between 1947 and 1967. The items included "vary in quality," but the work does allow "for a balanced participation of points of view."
