Also discussed is Wolman's process of determining what stories to write, locating sources, dealing with FOIA requests, interviewing families, and his impressions of his dealings with the U.S. Intelligence Community. Also covered is Moody's role in the Bay of Pigs, and other leadership activities during a long, outstanding career serving the Agency, the IC, the White House, and the country.

Professor/Researcher Seeks Identification of Events Significantly Affected by Intelligence for "When Intelligence Made a Difference" AFIO Publication

AFIO is beginning a new educational project entitled "When Intelligence Made a Difference." We invite you to identify events involving any nation or organization when the outcome was affected significantly by intelligence.
We plan to publish edited submissions serially in our print-only member magazine Intelligencer: Journal of US Intelligence Studies.

If you are interested in contributing an article, please email peter.oleson@afio.com. Briefly state what event you have in mind, and include your bio. [AFIO will identify authors by name and current or former title only ― no multi-line biographies.] If your suggestion is a good fit for this project, we will respond asking for your comments on that event, not to exceed 1,500 words (excluding footnotes).
When you send your article and bio, please let us know if you have ever had prior employment or contract work within the US Intelligence Community -- and, to meet pre-publication review requirements, supply a copy of the official approval letter or email you received back, naming and clearing for publication the article you are sending us. Without this, we are unable to consider or include your article in the publication.

As with most nonprofit academic publications, contributors will not be paid, however AFIO will publish under broad, pro-educational Creative Commons copyright. Therefore, authors retain the right to use their articles anywhere else they wish, after its publication in Intelligencer.
Eight weeks after publication of your contribution in the print-only version of Intelligencer, the article will then appear on AFIO's website for general public/educational access. Since the time of 1) an article's acceptance, and 2) appearance in print, and then 3) inclusion online can run eighteen months to three years from start-to-finish, a title-author listing of all accepted forthcoming articles (but no summaries) will be included in a print edition of Intelligencer and online. So it is imperative authors be patient as these articles are released on this serialized basis, in our two or three journal issues per year. By submitting an article to us authors acknowledge and accept these provisions.

This project would make a good class assignment. Accepted articles would give students a publication credit in a recognized journal.

Again, if you wish to participate or explore more aspects of this project, email Peter Oleson at peter.oleson@afio.com.

AFIO's Guide to the Study of Intelligence
Are You Using It?

Full no-cost, online version of Guide is here.

Perfect for professors, students, those considering careers in intelligence, and current/former officers seeking to see what changes are taking place across a wide spectrum of intelligence disciplines.

AFIO's Guide to the Study of Intelligence helps instructors teach about the large variety of subjects that make up the field of intelligence. This includes secondary school teachers of American History, Civics, or current events and undergraduate and graduate professors of History, Political Science, International Relations, Security Studies, and related topics, especially those with no or limited professional experience in the field. Even those who are former practitioners are likely to have only a limited knowledge of the very broad field of intelligence, as most spend their careers in one or two agencies at most and may have focused only on collection or analysis of intelligence or support to those activities.

We regret that the printed, bound edition has sold out. No copies remain for sale.

AVAILABLE ONLINE-ONLY: As an educational service to professors and students, AFIO provides the full 788-page Guide online here for free. This was made possible through the generosity of our foundation, corporate, and institutional members, coupled with the donations we received from our many individual members. We thank all of them.
Online version of the Guide.


Available as a thank you for donations are the new AFIO Breathe-easy logo face masks:

These soft, form-fitting, washable, non-medical grade fabric face masks have a double-layer tight weave with wide behind-the-ear elastics to make long periods of wear comfortable. Also easier to quickly put on or take off. Blue on outside, white inside so you never mistake the exposed side. The masks do not have a nose wire but are sculpted, shaped, and sewn to fit most users. The all-cloth composition allows the masks to be washed or steam-disinfected without concern over metal wires. The color logo is washable and a permanent part of the mask.

The masks, however, are not for sale. They are being offered strictly as a thank you gift to our donors.
For tax-deductible donations of $50 you will receive a receipt and our thank you gift of two of these newly-arrived face masks.
Donations of $100 receive four masks to be sent to the same address. Other amounts and split-shipments are available.
To donate now to support AFIO's programs and publications, please do so here.

We wish all members and donors continued good health, safe social distancing, and warmly appreciate any support you are able to provide the association.

Wednesday, 19 May 2021, noon EDT - Zoom Webinar - Curator's Corner: Dark Mirror with Barton Gellman - Virtual International Spy Museum Program

Edward Snowden touched off a global debate in 2013 when he gave Barton Gellman, Laura Poitras, and Glenn Greenwald each a vast and explosive archive of highly classified files revealing the extent of the American government's access to our every communication. They shared the Pulitzer Prize that year for public service. For Gellman, who never stopped reporting, that was only the beginning. He jumped off from what Snowden gave him to track the reach and methodology of the US surveillance state and bring it to light with astonishing new clarity. Along the way, he interrogated Snowden's own history and found important ways in which myth and reality do not line up. Join International Spy Museum Historian and Curator Andrew Hammond in conversation with Barton Gellman for a look at a true-life spy tale about the surveillance-industrial revolution and its discontents. Gellman told the story of his investigative reporting in the acclaimed 2020 book Dark Mirror: Edward Snowden and the American Surveillance State which went far beyond the unique access he had to Snowden.
Event is free but registration required. Visit www.spymuseum.org.


Running to 31 May 2021 - Washington, DC - NEW LIMITED-RUN MINI EXHIBIT: Codes, Ciphers, & Mysteries: NSA Treasures Tell Their Secrets - International Spy Museum Mini Exhibit

International Spy Museum eventsThe Spy Museum (aka "SPY") launches a limited-run mini pop-up exhibit, Codes, Ciphers, & Mysteries: NSA Treasures Tell Their Secrets in partnership with the NSA's National Cryptologic Museum, from April 5 through May 31 to showcase a select trove of key codebreaking and secure communications artifacts. Some of these historic objects are first-of-its-kind, one-of-a-kind, and breakthrough pieces from major moments in world history, including highlights such as a late 18th/early 19th century cylinder cipher, believed to be the oldest existing true cipher device in the world; a piece of Colossus, the world's first-ever electronic computer; and the US Space Shuttle Challenger Encryption System; among others. Tickets to the Museum available on the website.
Visit www.spymuseum.org.


Additional Events:

Thursday, 13 May 2021, 7 pm EDT - Zoom Webinar - China: National Security Consensus? - theme of this Hayden Center event at George Mason University featuring Mike Morell, Christopher Johnson, and John Culver.

In an era of polarized politics, where agreement on even the most basic issues is elusive, a consensus has emerged that China is America's most important national security challenge over the next several decades. But is there consensus developing on how to address the challenge? What does this mean for U.S. foreign policy? To what degree should America compete or cooperate with Beijing? What role does the Intelligence Community play in informing policy? Are America's national security institutions prepared for the challenge posed by China? Or are reforms like those that occurred at the outset of the Cold War needed?
The Michael V. Hayden Center for Intelligence, Policy, and International Security tackles this issue head on as Michael Morell, former acting and deputy CIA director, sits down with two former leading CIA analysts on China: Christopher Johnson, senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies; and John Culver, who retired last year as the National Intelligence Officer for East Asia in the National Intelligence Council after decades at CIA.
This Hayden Center presentation is being recorded for use on our website and social media.
TO JOIN THIS VIRTUAL ZOOM EVENT, use this registration link.


Wednesday, 26 May 2021, noon EDT - Zoom Webinar - Curator's Corner: Spooked with Barry Meier - Virtual International Spy Museum Program

Join International Spy Museum Historian and Curator Andrew Hammond in conversation with Barry Meier, who investigated the private spying industry for his new book SPOOKED: The Trump Dossier, Black Cube, and the Rise of Private Spies. A former New York Times investigative reporter and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Meier reveals the hidden, billion-dollar industry comprised of corporate investigators - or spies-for-hire - who are paid to dig up dirt and, if need be, destroy their clients' adversaries. Politicians, companies, and dictators are all making use of these dangerously clever freelance intelligence agents. From an underground trade in hacked or purloined documents to a certain well-planted dossier (e.g. the Steele Dossier?), and the manipulated reporters assisting it all, Meier shines a light on a landscape worthy of any spy novel -- a place where loyalties are for sale, information is currency, and double crosses are commonplace.
Event is free but registration required. Visit www.spymuseum.org.


Wednesday, 1 December 2021, TBD Time - Washington, DC - 2021 Webster Distinguished Service Award Event - International Spy Museum

Intelligence Community - Eleven Years in a Row and now higher ranked at #3 in 2019
One of the Best Places to Work in the Federal Government

For the eleventh consecutive year, the Intelligence Community (IC) was honored to be in the top-ten Best Places to Work in the Federal Government, according to an independent analysis of federal workers' job satisfaction and commitment. See more about the ranking here.

The rankings were compiled by the Partnership for Public Service (PPS) and American University's Institute for the Study of Public Policy Implementation (ISPPI) and announced recently in Washington, D.C. PPS is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that aims to attract people to federal careers and improve how the government runs. The institute conducts research and helps federal leaders solve difficult public-policy issues.

In 2019, the IC jumped two spots upwards to now be ranked THIRD overall among large agencies, which includes over 17 organizations, each of which employs more than two thousand people. Rankings are based on data from the 2019 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey, which the U.S. Office of Personnel Management administers. The first Federal Government survey was in 2003, but the IC has only participated since 2009. Max Stier, president and CEO of the Partnership for Public Service, noted that the IC does not have to participate but does so voluntarily, "which is a credit to them."

To maintain the security of information about its work force, the IC relies on its own survey instrument to assess each year how its workers feel about issues such as job satisfaction, professional development, and the effectiveness of senior leaders. The IC includes several questions from the federal survey in the IC's annual Employee Climate Survey. That way, the Community's information can be compared with that from other organizations.

Other top-five large organization Best Places to Work are: The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, HHS, Commerce and Transportation.

Visit bestplacestowork.org to see which agencies top the rankings and to access trend analysis, demographic data and various workplace categories, as well as generate custom reports and conduct side-by-side comparisons for up to three agencies.
