Kimche, Jon. Spying for Peace: General Guisan and Swiss Neutrality. London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1961. New York: Roy, 1961.
Constantinides: Guisan headed the Swiss armed forces during World War II. The thesis in Spying for Peace is that "the general and Swiss intelligence ensured Swiss neutrality by their ability to compete with the services of the warring powers." The author fails to provide evidence for his more sensational statements and simply cannot be accepted with confidence.

The author is Admiral Kimmel's son. He states: "I am pressing for the nomination to their highest held World War II ranks simply because I want to expunge government records of the sole remaining scintilla of evidence that the government continues to regard Admiral Kimmel and Gneral Short as solely responsible for the Pearl Harbor disaster."

According to Sexton, Kimmel "[c]harges that the White House deliberately withheld MAGIC intercepts as part of a plot to lure the Japanese into making the first overt hostile move in the Pacific."
Kimmel, Thomas K., Jr., J.A. Williams, and Paul Glyn Williams. "The FBI's Role in the Pearl Harbor Attack." American Intelligence Journal 27, no. 1 (Fall 2009): 41-48.
The lead author is a former FBI agent and grandson of Adm. Husband E. Kimmel. He argues that FBI "Director Hoover, from a position of influence, shielded the FBI from blame [for the attack on Pearl Harbor] by hiding a number of its failures, some of them potentially pivotal."

The grandson of Admiral Kimmel offers up another tidbit -- an FBI memorandum concerning the breaking and handling of Japanese radio traffic -- in the ongoing debate about who knew what prior to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
Kimmitt, Robert M. "Give Treasury Its Proper Role on the National Security Council." New York Times, 23 Jul. 2012. [http://www.nytimes.com]
The author, "a former deputy Treasury secretary, under secretary of state, and ambassador to Germany, served on the National Security Council staff from 1976 to 1985." Here, he argues that the Treasury secretary should be made a statutory member of the NSC, rather than an invited attendee. "The concept of national security has broadened considerably since the N.S.C.'s early decades, elevating economic and financial issues to crucial elements to our nation's security, alongside the traditional diplomatic and military issues."
Kimura, Hiseo, as told to Scott Berry. Japanese Agent in Tibet: My Ten Years of Travel in Disguise. London: Serindia Publications, 1990.
Surveillant 2.4: Kimura was a 1940s agent for the Japanese and British. After 1950, he "worked for the US Gov't, monitoring daily Mongolian broadcasts from Moscow, Ulan Bator and Peking." Knaus, Orphans of the Cold War (1999), 330/fn.38 refers to Kimura as having "spent the war on a hapless intelligence mission for the Japanese military in the Ando region of northeastern Tibet. He reached Lhasa only after the war ended." See also, Berry, Monks, Spies and a Soldier of Fortune: The Japanese in Tibet (1995).
Kinch, Penelope. "The Iranian Crisis and the Dynamics of Advice and Intelligence in the Carter Administration." Journal of Intelligence History 6, no. 2 (Winter 2006-2007). [http://www.intelligence-history.org/jih/journal.html]
From abstract: "[T]he lack of awareness and understanding of the developing situation in Iran between 1977-1979 demonstrates a breakdown in communication within the Carter Administration. This article examines the dynamics of the factions within Carter's advisory group which limited both the provision and the accuracy of information provided to the President, and the reactive nature of intelligence emanating from Iran which caused reporting to reflect rather than prescribe the foreign policy direction of the U.S."

The U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) "is not managed or organized to directly address national security missions and threats. The Community continues to have a 'stovepipe' collection focus.... No IC-wide operational organization exists to direct the collective activities of those stovepipe capabilities against specific national security missions.... To implement a new substantive mission focus, the IC needs to create Community-wide substantive analytic/collection centers."
