Hastedt, Glenn. "The Constitutional Control of Intelligence." Intelligence and National Security 1, no. 2 (May 1986): 255-271.

The author argues that "constitutional control of intelligence has yet to be fully realized.... By basing control efforts on insights from the civil-military relations literature, existing control mechanisms will have their greatest impact and additional mechanisms can be put into place." In a letter carried in I&NS 2.2, former CIA General Counsel Lawrence K. Houston opines that "the article as a whole shows a total lack of understanding of how the system actually works."
