McGranahan, Carole. Arrested Histories: Tibet, the CIA, and Memories of a Forgotten War. Durham, NC: Duke University Press, 2010.

Nathan, FA 89.6 (Nov-Dec. 2010), notes that the author "patiently interviewed elderly survivors of the Tibetan guerilla resistance to Chinese rule.... CIA support for the guerillas is a known story, to which the old soldiers add some colorful details. Less well known are the roles of the Indian, Nepali, and (to a small degree) Taiwanese governments in supporting the small force."

From abstract: "Th[is] article recounts the origins of the Tibetan resistance forces, their relationship with the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, their eventual laying down of arms in 1974, and their legacy in the present-day exile community.... The war, pitting a voluntary Tibetan guerrilla movement against the Chinese Communist army, had implications well beyond Tibet and China."

Grunfeld, H-Diplo, 27 Jul. 2007 [http://www.h-net.org/~diplo], comments that the author's important contribution is her focus "'on the resistance movement itself and the individuals who constituted it.' [footnote omitted] This she has done -- skillfully -- through extensive interviews and recently published Tibetan language materials." As an anthropologist, McGranahan provides "an important supplement and new dimension to this story."

McGrory, Daniel. "Bomb Plan to Disrupt Prince's Investiture." Times (London), 13 Sep. 1999. [http://www.the-times.co.uk]

"The dirty tricks planned against Britain by the KGB's Department V included disrupting the preparations for the investiture of the Prince of Wales in the summer of 1969. KGB officials decided that security for the ceremony at Caernarfon Castle on July 1 would be too tight for any spectacular coup."

"A race between terrorists and the Western powers for control of a huge cache" of shoulder-launched Stinger anti-aircraft missiles "is underway in the arms bazaars of Afghanistan.... The weapons were sent into Afghanistan by the CIA during the Soviet occupation and were a key factor in tipping the balance of firepower against the Red Army. Now the West fears that, if they fall into the wrong hands, the Stingers could turn the tables in future conflicts or prove devastating if used by terror groups against civilian aviation."

McGrory, Daniel, Stewart Tendler, and Michael Evans. "Police Hunt For Lethal Chemical Suicide Vest." Times (London), 3 Jun. 2006. [http://www.timesonline.co.uk]

On 2 June 2006, police wearing oxygen masks and protective chemical gear raided a house in Forest Gate, East London. They were acting on the basis of "a tip-off from MI5" that "a British suicide bomber was ready to deploy" wearing a home-made chemical device. A 23-year-old postal worker was wounded in the raid and is at a hospital under police guard. His 20-year-old brother "was being questioned at Paddington Green high security police station."

"DIA analysts contended that Iraq was conducting training exercises. The CIA alerted policymakers and the military as early as mid-July that Iraq appeared to be planning an attack." (fn. 3)

McGuire, Eamon. Enemy of the Empire: Life as an International Undercover IRA Activist. Dublin: O'Brien Press, 2006.

This is one of those books the advertising of which raises credibility questions. When the publisher headlines that the author was "the CIA's most-wanted IRA man," as though the CIA was some sort of international law enforcement agency, it is easy to wonder about how much is fact and how much fiction.

The signals intelligence system discussed is Prophet Block 1. The system can intercept and locate signals while operating on the move, and the intercept receiver can operate as a manpack system for airborne operations.

"Several things forced the truce of July 1921, of which Collins' intelligence network is only one. But it is arguably the most important one. One of the key reason[s] that the War of Independence of 1919-1921 actually achieved a tangible result (the Anglo-Irish Treaty), unlike scores of previous rebellions, was intelligence."

This article gives an "account of the inception, development, operation, and untimely demise of this remarkable airplane. The OXCART no longer flies, but it left a legacy of technological achievement which points the way to new projects. And it became the progenitor of a similar but somewhat less sophisticated reconnaissance vehicle called the SR-71."

McIvor, Anthony D., ed. Rethinking the Principles of War. Annapolis, MD: Naval Institute Press, 2005.

Jones, DIJ 15.1 (2006), finds that this anthology brings together "an impressive array of national security and military thinkers." There are five major parts to the book, with the final part concentrating on intelligence. The essays in the intelligence section "tend to focus more exclusively on offering solutions and recommendations than raising questions or examining notions."
