On 21 January 2008, Israel launched "a sophisticated new spy satellite, designated TECSAR.... The satellite was sent into orbit from the Sriharikota Launching Range in India, using an Indian rocket.... The TECSAR, manufactured by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), has the ability to use radar to identify targets even under adverse weather conditions including dense clouds. As such, it differs from Israel's Ofek series of reconnaissance satellites, which rely on cameras."

On 29 November 2010, Tamir Pardo was announced "as the new chief of Israel's Institute for Intelligence and Special Operations, the Mossad." He has "served twice as deputy Mossad chief." His military service included "the elite commando unit Sayeret Matkal.... Pardo's appointment is an attempt to diffuse criticism from within the Mossad, which has seen its directors come from outside of the organization."

Clark comment: Although the dust jacket lists Dan Raviv first of the two authors, all other indicators from the cover on list Yossi Melman first and he is, therefore, shown as the first author here. According to the authors, the U.S.-Israeli alliance "is a broad relationship, extending from international politics to military affairs, from intelligence cooperation to financial ties." (p. xv) There are references to intelligence-related activities throughout the book, but Chapters 4, 7, and 15 focus on such issues. Surveillant 4.4/5 says that the authors "uncover and document many revelations about the secret side of the alliance, including new details of the intimacy between intelligence networks."
