Resch, David T. "Predictive Analysis: The Gap Between Academia and Practitioners." Military Intelligence 21, no. 2 (Apr.-Jun. 1995): 26-29.
The author takes issue with the contention that in human events there are too many variables affecting events at too great a pace to allow for prediction. "If too many variables exist, we must become proficient in identifying the key ones.... [Y]ou can disregard madness and genius more readily than societal, economic, or political trends (which are scientifically identifiable) in analysis."

Resnik, David B. "Neuroethics, National Security, and Secrecy." American Journal of Bioethics 7, no. 5 (May 2007): 14-16.
Handling the "dual use dilemma" in questions involving publication of biomedical research requires that editors and others "carefully assess and weigh the benefits and risks of public dissemination.... To make well-informed decisions, it is important to solicit advice from experts in the relevant area of science, but also experts in many other areas.... Decision makers may also require information from law enforcement, military, and intelligence authorities."
Reston, James. "Rusk Declares Sympathy of Nation for Castro Foes." New York Times, 18 Apr. 1961.
The Secretary of State has expressed "the sympathy of the American people for those who struck against Castroism in Cuba, but emphasized 'there is not and will not be any intervention there by United States forces.' The Administration did not deny that it was giving material support to the raiding parties, but this aid was undoubtedly on a much smaller scale than originally planned here and the landings in Cuba were much smaller than excited reports of 'invasion' suggested."

"Kingpin" was the operational name for the raid on Son Tay; "Eagle Claw" was the operational name for the Iranian hostage rescue mission. This article engages in too much handwringing over what was done wrong without always supporting that something was wrong other than by identifying it as such.
