Rosenberg, Matthew. "With Bags of Cash, C.I.A. Seeks Influence in Afghanistan." New York Times, 28 Apr. 2013. [http://www.nytimes.com]
"For more than a decade, wads of American dollars packed into suitcases, backpacks and, on occasion, plastic shopping bags have been dropped off every month or so at the offices of Afghanistan's president -- courtesy of the Central Intelligence Agency. All told, tens of millions of dollars have flowed from the C.I.A. to the office of President Hamid Karzai, according to current and former advisers to the Afghan leader."
See Matthew Rosenberg, "Afghan Leader Confirms Cash Deliveries by C.I.A.," New York Times, 29 Apr. 2013: Speaking at "at a news conference in Helsinki, Finland" on 29 April 2013, Afghan President Hamid Karzai acknowledged that the CIA "has been dropping off bags of cash at his office for a decade, saying the money was used for 'various purposes' and expressing gratitude to the United States for making the payments." See also, Matthew Rosenberg, "Karzai Says He Was Assured C.I.A. Would Continue Delivering Bags of Cash," New York Times, 4 May 2013; and Kevin Sieff, "Karzai Acknowledges CIA Payments," Washington Post, 4 May 2013.
See also, Robert Baer, "Cash for Karzai -- Don't Blame the CIA for Flushing Money Down the Drain," Time, 1 May 2013: "I have no idea what the precise justification for giving money to Karzai was, but I'm almost certain that the White House, Congress and the Pentagon were breathing down the CIA's neck to do something about Afghan's political leadership.... No one apparently understood that in a place like Afghanistan you can only rent compliance, and for the shortest of time.... From its earliest days, the CIA has been saddled with orders to prop up corrupt regimes.... It invariably fails, and just as invariably leaves egg on the CIA's face."
Rosenberg, Matthew, and Eric Schmitt. "U.S. Is Escalating a Secretive War in Afghanistan." New York Times, 12 Feb. 2015. [http://www.nytimes.com]
In October 2014, a raid on a village by Afghan intelligence commandos and American Special Operations forces netted "a laptop computer and files detailing [al-]Qaeda operations on both sides of the [Afghanistan-Pakistan] border.... In the months since, the trove of intelligence has helped fuel a significant increase in night raids by American Special Operations forces and Afghan intelligence commandos.... American and Afghan officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity..., said that American forces were playing direct combat roles in many of the raids and were not simply going along as advisers....
"The raids appear to have ... hit both [al-]Qaeda and Taliban operatives.... Afghan and American officials said the raids over the past few months had been carried out by the elite commandos of the National Directorate of Security, Afghanistan's main spy agency, and members of a mix of American military Special Operations units, such as Navy SEALs and Army Rangers, and paramilitary officers from the C.I.A."

Rosenfeld, Susan. "Doing Injustice to the FBI: The Negative Myths Perpetrated by Historians." Chronicle of Higher Education, 8 Oct. 1999, B6-B8.
The former NARA archivist and former FBI official historian argues that "some people often allow untested negative assumptions about the F.B.I., and its former director J. Edgar Hoover, to color their responses" to current events. "Even more unfortunate, many scholars are among those who accept such untested assumptions -- and thus give them the imprimatur of truth." Clark comment: This article is a quick and informative read; I recommend it.

Rosenthal, Elisabeth. "China Changes Approach in Espionage Incident." New York Times, 27 Jan. 2002. [http://www.nytimes.com]
In contrast to the reaction in April 2001 when a U.S. spy plane collided with a Chinese jet, the Chinese have "barely made a peep after a new ... set of espionage revelations...: President Jiang Zemin's newly delivered Boeing 767 had been surreptitiously loaded with dozens of listening devices while its interior was being outfitted last year in San Antonio.... There are many pragmatic reasons for such a change, from China's hope that a more conciliatory tone would help promote its views on the divisive issue of Taiwan, to its desire to avoid the distraction of international crises as it is prepares to host the Olympics in 2008 and to meet obligations as a new member of World Trade Organization."
