Whaley, Floyd, and Eric Schmitt. "U.S. Phasing Out Its Counterterrorism Unit in Philippines." New York Times, 27 Jun. 2014, A3. [http://www.nytimes.com]
The Pentagon's Pacific Command said on 26 June 2014 that the Joint Special Operations Task Force Philippines, the U.S. "military counterterrorism unit that has been operating in the southern Philippines for more than a decade[,] is being phased out.... American Special Forces will continue to help Philippine security forces counter a smaller, lingering Islamist threat, but the size of the mission will drop in the coming months to a dozen or so advisers from its current 320 service members, based in Mindanao in the south, American officials said."

Wheale, Adrian. Renegades: Hitler's Englishmen. London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1994.
Thurlow, I&NS 11.1: "Broadly speaking, the renegades were mainly involved with Nazi propaganda,... and with the attempted formation of ... the 'British Free Corps,' to fight against the Soviet Army on the eastern front." This book "gives the most illuminating account" of the latter effort thus far published. The author's work is also "useful" in discussing the motives behind treasonous behavior: "Wheale shows the complexity of the motives of those involved..., and provides a much more plausible assessment than Rebecca West's classic contemporary unsympathetic account of the weeds and misfits who dabbled in treason."

Wheatley was one of the earliest members of the London Controlling Section (LCS), the body that coordinated British deception activities during World War II. He has written two books that touch on his deception work, the more recent of which is much fuller in detail.
1. Stranger than Fiction. London: Hutchinson, 1959.
Constantinides notes that only a small section of this book deals with deception activities and then without specifics.
2. The Deception Planners: My Secret War. London: Hutchinson, 1980.
Constantinides says that this work is a "detailed first-hand account of the LCS and its personnel and work.... Wheatley contributes good character sketches of his colleagues in LCS and clarifies boundaries of responsibility ... between LCS and Dudley Clarke's A Force in the Mediterranean and the Middle East." Lacking from this work are mentions of the roles of Ultra and of the United States in deception operations.

According to Calder, this article "[d]iscusses the case of Enoch Totten;... OPLAN 34-A in North Vietnam and Laos, 1960-1966;... [and] the legal relationship between the parties when covert services are obtained."
Wheaton, Kristan J. "Analysis in Crisis Prevention." International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 14, no. 2 (Summer 2001): 223-233.

Wheaton, Kristan J. "Evaluating Intelligence: Answering Questions Asked and Not." International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 22, no. 4 (Winter 2009): 614-631.
"The fundamental problem with evaluating intelligence products is that intelligence, for the most part, is probabalistic." The author looks at the Iraq WMD estimate of October 2002 and two Intelligence Community Assessments (ICA) completed in January 2003 and concludes that considered together the estimative conclusions in the three documents "seem to track pretty well with historical norms and leadership expectations."

The author reports "the initial results and lessons learned from teaching three full courses (two undergraduate and one graduate) in strategic intelligence using games as a teching tool."

Wheelon, Albert D. ("Bud") "Corona: The First Reconnaissance Satellites." Physics Today, Feb. 1997, 24-30.
This is an excellent brief presentation addressing the development, operation, and significance of the Corona photoreconnaissance satellite. Wheelon concludes that Corona's photography "assumed a decisive role in the cold war analogous to that of the breaking of German cipher machine codes in World War II." Although most of the details in this article are readily available in other media, Wheelon's position as DDS&T from 1962 to 1966 makes his discussion particularly useful. The article is based on Wheelon's speech at the conference where much of the Corona photography was made public: "Piercing the Curtain: Corona and the Revolution in Intelligence," Washington, DC, 23 May 1995, under the sponsorship of George Washington University and the CIA's Center for the Study of Intelligence.

This article "focuses on the way in which a combination of technical collection systems and scientific analysis contributed decisively to the solution of three important Cold War problems: Soviet ballistic missile programs, the Soviet space program, and Soviet missile defense systems. In doing so, it suggests the similarity of intelligence activities to scientific research. It also notes the long-running collaboration of civilian scientists and engineers with the intelligence community."

Despite the specific mention of Mata Hari in the title, this book ranges broadly around the world in its survey of the ways (most unjustified, according to the author) the idea of the seductive and dangerous temptress has been promoted.
