Winborn, Byron R. Wen Bon: A Naval Air Intelligence Officer Behind Japanese Lines in China in WWII. Denton, TX: University of North Texas Press, 1994.

Bates, NIPQ 13.1, notes that Winborn, who arrived in China in February 1945, tells a "fast moving, first-person narrative" of his service in Nanping and, after the end of the war, in Shanghai. His job during the war was to "take charge of all crashed or captured enemy air equipment" within his area of responsibility.

Winchell, Sean P. "Pakistan's ISI: The Invisible Government." International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 16, no. 3 (Fall 2003): 374-388.

"Since partition, no political force within Pakistan has driven the nation's domestic and international political agenda as has its army, and more specifically, one of its intelligence units, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency.... With the rise of President Musharraf, and Pakistan's strengthened relationship with the United States, enough pressure may now exist to afford Musharraf the opportunity to bring the ISI firmly under government control."

Windmill, Lorna Almonds. A British Achilles. Barnsley, UK: Pen & Sword, 2005.

According to Foot, I&NS 21.3 (Jun. 2006), this biography of George, second Earl Jellicoe serves as "a sound guide to the maze of sub-units and semi-secret services with which the eastern Mediterranean abounded" during World War II. The reviewer sees Windmill's description of Jellicoe's wartime service with SAS, of which he was second in command, and his formation of the Special Boat Section as stronger than her handling of Jellicoe's later life.

The Medical and Psychiatric Analysis Center (MPAC) is the CIA unit that "gaug[es] the health of world leaders.... 'At most, there are seven who do this full time,' says Dr. Jonathan Clemente, a Charlotte, N.C., physician who has tracked the group and is writing a history of the center entitled, 'Cloak and Doctor.'" Castro's "most recent medical issue was just one of several recent events surrounding his health that has intrigued MPAC analysts," Clemente notes.

"Senior intelligence and military officials tell NBC News that India put its nuclear testing equipment underground in 1996 following a leak to The New York Times that U.S. spy satellites were monitoring that nation's nuclear test site.... The Times report ran Dec. 14, 1995, and quoted unnamed government officials as saying satellites had recorded activity in western India that suggested a test might be imminent.... India was able to very 'quickly and subtly' make preparations for the test of three nuclear devices Monday.... India calculated the orbits of spy satellites and then moved equipment at times when they believed nothing was overhead."

"Newly unearthed documents, mostly letters from the CIA to Congress, lay out evidence of an intensive intelligence effort to help U.S. corporations win contracts overseas. The documents ... appear to confirm reports that America's electronic eavesdropping apparatus was involved in commercial espionage."

Windrich, Elaine. The Cold War Guerrilla: Jonas Savimbi, the U.S. Media and the Angolan War. Westport, CT: Greenwood, 1992.

From advertisement: "This is the first book on U.S. policy in Angola during the 1980s. Windrich shows how the Reagan administration led the U.S. media to inflate the importance of Jonas Savimbi as a 'freedom fighter' and to intensify the civil war in Angola."
