Klaidman, Daniel, with Gregory L. Vistica. "Was the Spymaster Too Sloppy?" Newsweek, 19 Apr.1999, 42.
"Justice sources tell Newsweek that when [John M.] Deutch was CIA director, he ... routinely took his work home with him,... removing highly sensitive intelligence materials from CIA headquarters and accessing them on his unsecured personal computer even though he had a secure CIA computer in the house.... The Justice Department, which investigated the case for more than a year, decided not to press criminal charges, and has referred the matter back to the CIA. Officials close to the case say that the CIA's inspector general is preparing a 'scathing' report about Deutch's alleged security breaches, and the agency is considering whether to revoke his high-level security clearances."

This article looks at what the 80 recently released National Intelligence Estimates (NIEs) and the discussion at the joint CIA-Harvard conference reveal about the state of U.S. knowledge of Soviet ICBM research and deployment in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

Klass, Philip J. Secret Sentries in Space. New York: Random House, 1971.
Clark comment: Consideration of Klass' Secret Sentries must begin with the note that it is very dated today. However, in the 1980s, Pforzheimer viewed it as "an interesting and informative discussion of the development ... of space satellites." And Constantinides called it "a well-written history of the development of various generations of reconnaissance satellites" of the United States and the Soviet Union. He noted, however, that the author showed a "greater knowledge" of the U.S. side.
More recently, Peake, AIJ 15.2, could still designate it a "pioneering book ... based on open sources." Given what he had to work with, "Klass did rather well.... For those wishing to learn how the space satellite program got underway, and what was in the public domain twenty-five years ago, Secret Sentries is the place to start."

Klehr, Harvey, John Earl Haynes, and Fridrikh I. Firsov. Russian documents tr. Timothy D. Sergay. The Secret World of American Communism. New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 1995.
According to Anthony Cave Brown, WPNWE, 12-18 Jun. 1995, this is the first book in a projected 18-volume set called the "Annals of Communism," which are to be "documentary histories drawn from the Comintern's archives." The volume examines 92 documents or files about secret work by the Comintern in the United States. The authors are to be congratulated "on their meticulous skill in the production of this first volume." The documents "constitute a rich vein of new information about the nature and the extent of the Soviet political attack on the United States." The material on Armand Hammer is particularly instructive, because it shows Hammer there at both the beginning of the Comintern and the end of the Soviet Union. Nonetheless, to the end, Hammer "remained a political riddle."
Glotzer, IJI&C 9.1, notes that many of the incidents and topics contained in the documents "were known in one form or another in past years. But the power of this volume lies in the concentrated documentation from Soviet archives about the secret activities of the American party." To Surveillant 4.2, this work "is proof that, all along, CPUSA was involved in subversive activities." The details about the workings of the party and about those Americans who participated in its clandestine activities are "fascinating."
Klehr, Harvey, and Ronald Radosh. The Amerasia Spy Case: Prelude to McCarthyism. Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 1996.
Unsinger, IJI&C 10.2, notes that Klehr and Radosh "supply "an expanded view of the familiar case, made possible by greater access to the documents of the period." Wannell, WIR 15.4, finds the book to be a "very readable and understandable" presentation of a complicated case. The book both explains the Amerasia case itself and portrays its aftermath, including "two highly politicized congressional hearings."
For Schmitt, APSR 91.3, this is "the most definitive account to date of both the case itself and its place in the domestic political turmoil over anticommunism which followed." The book's focus really is not espionage, but the authors "provide a good if somewhat untidy overview of the intelligence and counterintelligence aspects of the case."
Klein, Aaron J. Striking Back: The 1972 Munich Olympics Massacre and Israel's Deadly Response. New York: Random House, 2005.
The Publishers Weekly reviewer (via Amazon.com) finds that "Klein's account is well researched and highly valuable.... [W]hile the episodic structure he employs becomes repetitive, it is nevertheless a necessary read for anyone interested in Israeli history and politics as well as the birth of modern counter-terrorism." According to Associated Press, "Book Details Mossad's Chocolate Assassination," 6 May 2006, the author says that Mossad killed Wadia Haddad, an operative of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, in Baghdad by feeding him poisoned Belgian chocolate over a period of six months. Haddad died in March 1978.
Kleinman, Steven M. "KUBARK Counterintelligence Interrogation Review: Observations of an Interrogator." Defense Intelligence Journal 15, no. 1 (2006): 79-134.
This is a detailed look at "the potential for lessons learned" from the controversial "KUBARK Counterintelligence Interrogation Manual," produced by the CIA in 1963 and declassified in 1997. The author finds in the manual "a wealth of valuable concepts that either have the potential for immediate application ... or that warrant further study."

Kloman, Erasmus H. Assignment Algiers: With the OSS in the Mediterranean Theater. Annapolis, MD: Naval Institute Press, 2005.
From publisher: As OSS Acting Chief of Operations in the Mediterranean Theater, the author "helped organize and coordinate the actions of Special Operations (SO) teams that infiltrated Italy and occupied-France." The author "provides a fascinating inside view of the 'shadow war' within the larger conflagration of World War II."
Peake, Studies 50.1 (Mar. 2006), comments that the author's "narrative is something more than a first-hand account of OSS operations from a staff officer's perspective." Although Kloman tells of the OSS role supporting French partisans and the Italian resistance, "he also includes the day-to-day difficulties encountered with the often uncooperative British and the persistent confusion within OSS itself -- both of which limited the impact OSS had on the war.... In his perceptive epilogue, Kloman looks back on his wartime OSS service and the influence of the organization on postwar intelligence."

Klooz, Marie Stuart. Ed., Emil Levine. Japanese Diplomatic Secrets (1933 Manuscript). The Only Publication Ever Seized by the U.S. Government with Analytical Articles from Cryptologia. Published as a CD. Laguna Hills, CA: Aegean Park Press, 2001.
Kahn, JIH 1.2, notes that this CD "pictorially reproduces the original document but also permits its text to be searched for individual words." This work, long thought to be Herbert O. Yardleys second book on the Washington naval disarmament conference, was actually written by "a young free-lance journalist, Marie Stuart Klooz.... The manuscript consists essentially of hundreds of intercepted Japanese diplomatic dispatches with scraps of connecting text.... Its literary merit is nil -- Klooz is banal ... and unperspicacious. And its historical value is small. The intercepts carry no code designation and, most importantly, no date of solution, making them useless to the historian who needs to know when the American negotiators received them." Yardley's memoir, The American Black Chamber, "flaunted the most significant solutions; the new ones given here add little. Still, the work gives many more Japanese messages than ever before ... and they are in English. They will be of most use, despite their flaws, to the historians of disarmament and of Japanese politics."
