Steele, Jonathan. "Romeo Spy Was 'Just Trouble.'" The Observer, 19 Sep. 1999.

KGB Colonel Igor Prelin, the "main Moscow 'handler'" of the so-called "Romeo Spy" has said that John Symonds was "far more trouble than he was worth." Symonds made "only two contacts of any value to the Soviet Union but cost it a lot in hotel bills, fancy clothes and entertainment."

Steele, Robert David.

Steely, Skipper. Pearl Harbor Countdown: Admiral James O. Richardson. Gretna, LA: Pelican, 2008.

From publisher: The author "presents a detailed biography of the man who fought to prevent" placing the United States Naval Fleet in the Pacific at Pearl Harbor -- Adm. James Otto Richardson. "Through his comprehensive treatment of the life and times of Admiral Richardson, Steely explores four decades of American foreign policy, traditional military practice, U.S. intelligence, and the administrative side of the military."

McKay, Proceedings 135.5 (May 2009), finds that this book "is marred by historical inaccuracies and weak geographical references.... Through too much irrelevancy, poor grammar, and the absence of careful editing, the true story of the countdown to Pearl Harbor and the myriad consequences that followed that fateful event are lost."

Steers, Bob. FSS. Field Security Section. Ashford, Kent: Intelligence Corps Association, 1996.

According to Watt, I&NS 12.3, "Field Security was that arm of the Intelligence Corps whose job it was to ensure the security of British troops in the field." The function included both passive (physical security) and active counterespionage work. This volume brings together "the testimonies of 43 FS personnel who served with Field Security between 1940 and the early 1950s ... and cover[s] virtually every area of active service during the years 1940-45," as well as other areas in the years immediately following the war. The reviewer, a former FS NCO, recommends the book as "a remarkable collection of reminiscences, and an excellent picture, of one of the most effective and unconventional branches of British Military Intelligence."

"'The encephalitis outbreak in New York is a powerful lesson for public health authorities,' said Alan Zelicoff, a senior scientist at the Center for National Security and Arms Control at Sandia National Laboratories in New Mexico. 'It is a sobering, not so reassuring, demonstration of the inadequacies of the U.S. detection network for emerging diseases.'"

On 2 June 2015, the U.S. Senate approved the USA Freedom Act "curtailing the federal government's sweeping surveillance of American phone records, and President Obama signed the measure hours later." The storage of bulk collection of phone records "now shifts to the phone companies, and the government must petition" the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) "for permission to search them."
