Fein, Geoff. "Navy Stands up Deep Red Cell to Study Enemy's Ability to Disrupt Operations." Naval Intelligence Professionals Quarterly 22, no. 2 (Apr. 2006): 28.

Interview from Defense Daily (20 Jan. 2006) with David Cattler, deputy assistant director of Naval Intelligence for Intelligence Support and director of Deep Red. The Navy established in June 2005 "Deep Red, an intelligence group that will offer a 'devil's advocate' perspective to ensure warfare commanders make more accurate decisions and to examine how adversaries might use available technologies, in non-traditional ways, to disrupt operations."

Flink, John [LTJG/USNR]. "Intelligence Engagement in Africa." Naval Intelligence Professionals Quarterly 14, no. 1 (Jan. 2008): 20-21.

"Intelligence is part of the comprehensive package of military specialties being taken to the continent in the run-up to next year's full-fledged debut of United States Africa Command, or AFRICOM, a new combatant command that achieved interim operating status in Stuttgart in October" 2007.

Friedman, Norman. "World Naval Developments: Back in the Surveillance Game." U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings 133, no. 1 (Jan. 2007): 90-91.

The detection of a surfaced Chinese diesel-powered attack submarine reportedly within torpedo range of the aircraft carrier USS Kitty Hawk "can be read" as a "wake-up call" for U.S. antisubmarine warfare and "as proof that this capability has stagnated since the end of the Soviet threat."

Greer, Mark [CAPT/USN]. "ONI Uses Advanced Information Technology in Support of Warfighters." Naval Intelligence Professionals Quarterly 19, nos. 1 & 2 (Jun. 2003): 12-13.

ONI "has become a community leader in leveraging information technology (IT) in support of the Naval Intelligence mission. The IT Directorate (ONI-4) ... has implemented a number of cutting edge solutions over the last 3-4 years, in addition to its more traditional missions of providing the IT infrastructure at ONI."

Griffin, Jim [LTCDR/USN]. "Naval Intelligence Needs a High-Low Mix." U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings 132, no. 1 (Jan. 2006): 66-70.

This article was the 2005 Naval Intelligence Essay Contest 1st Prize winner. The author argues that "[t]he first priority of Naval Intelligence must be the ability to answer any question a commander may ask about a potential adversary. To successfully do that, the community must organize and evaluate itself based on its knowledge of the threat.... A mix of intelligence capabilities to meet the diverging threats of the post-9/11 world is needed." This mix would include both conventional (high-end) capabilities and unconventional (low-end) capabilities.

"The lack of focus on a single unifying skill has led the naval intelligence community away from supporting the fleet. The community has been so focused on developing specialty skills it has stopped addressing the fleet's basic need: actionable intelligence."

Holliday, Guy [CAPT/USN]. "Naval Intelligence and the Revolution in Training." Naval Intelligence Professionals Quarterly 19, no. 4 (Dec. 2003): 24-26.

Intelligenceonline. "US Navy Bolsters Its Intelligence Footprint." 1 Sep. 2008. []

"Two new organizations have been formed with a mandate to inject fresh impetus into the US Navy's intelligence effort." The Secretary of the Navy Advisory Panel was created by the Navy Secretary last year "to mull a shake-up in intelligence and changes in the way the U.S. Navy buys its equipment." Also, the Navy has "announced the creation of an Irregular Warfare Office tasked with defining a doctrine and beefing up the service's capacity to wage asymmetric warfare and conduct intelligence and psychological operations."

Lambert, Mike [CAPT/USN]. "The Navy's Cryptologic Community -- A Transformational Phoenix?" U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings 132, no. 10 (Oct. 2005): 74-75. Naval Intelligence Professionals Quarterly 22, no. 1 (Jan. 2006): 32-33.

"Rising from the ashes of decline, the Naval Security Group (the Navy's cryptologic community) is seeing the benefits of its transformation from a legacy signals intelligence (SIGINT) collection, analysis, and reporting organization to a truly multi-faceted 'information operations' organization."

Jacoby, "From the Chairman," NIPQ 22.3 (Jun. 2006): 3, takes issue with some of Lambert's commentary. Jacoby argues that "[t]he need [for change] can be stated in more positive terms.... The case might be better made by talking about relevance and integration of Navy's SIGINT and Information Warfare capabilities into the broader mosaic that is absolutely essential to dealing with the very difficult intelligence challenges of today's war."

Loescher, Michael S. "Navy Cryptology Is Broken." U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings 126, no. 2 (Feb. 2000): 112.

"[O]ver the past ten years -- lost in organizational nostalgia and shackled by a myopic vision of the past and future -- the Naval Security Group Command (NavSecGruCom) has become a costly burden to the Navy.... The simple truth is that although the Navy must retain its cryptologic talent, it does not need NavSecGruCom."

Luttrell, Marcus, with Patrick Robinson. Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10. New York: Little, Brown, 2007.

According to Longino, Proceedings 134.5 (May 2008), this is the harrowing story of a special operation "mission that went awry." The author was the sole survivor of a four-man SEAL Team deployed into northeastern Afghanistan in June 2005. See Sean D. Naylor, "Surviving SEAL Tells Story of Deadly Mission," Navy Times, 16 Jun. 2007.
