Wippl, Joseph W. "The CIA and Tolkachev vs. the KGB/SVR and Ames: A Comparison." International Journal of Intelligence and CounterIntelligence 23, no. 4 (Winter 2010-2011): 636-646.

"[T]he CIA was more thorough, imaginative, and humane with Tolkachev, while the KGB/SVR was more dexterous, simple, and compartmented with Ames."

Benjamin B. Fischer, "Readers' Forum: A Dangle or the Real Deal?" International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 24, no. 2 (Summer 2011): 422-425, argues [as he had previously in "The Spy Who Came in for the Gold: A Skeptical View of the GTVANQUISH Case," Journal of Intelligence History 8, no. 1 (Summer 2008): 29-34] that Tolkachev "was the perpetrator of a sophisticated KGB hoax." Wippl, "A Dangle? But Why Executed?" International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 24, no. 2 (Summer 2011): 426, agrees that anomalies exist in the Tolkachev case but wonders, why, then, was Tolkachev executed?
