Jonna Mendez, former CIA Chief of Disguise, co-author of
The Moscow Rules: The Secret CIA Tactics That Helped America Win the Cold War

and
Vince Houghton PhD, Spy Museum Historian, discussing his just released
The Nuclear Spies: America's Atomic Intelligence Operation against Hitler and Stalin

1 November 2019, 10:30 am - 2 pm - Tysons, VA

Jonna Mendez's presentation starts at 11 a.m. Mendez (Spy Dust: Two Masters of Disguise Reveal the Tools and Operations That Helped Win the Cold War), share (with late husband Tony Mendez) their experiences as spies in Moscow during the height of the Cold War in the mid-1980s. The authors begin with the initial list of "the Moscow Rules" and continue to discuss briefly the current state of affairs in Russia under Vladimir Putin, and how they interfered with the 2016 U.S. election.

Vince Houghton PhD, historian and curator of the International Spy Museum, makes his presentation at 1 p.m. on The Nuclear Spies: America's Atomic Intelligence Operation against Hitler and Stalin. He asks why did the US intelligence services fail so spectacularly to know about the Soviet Union's nuclear capabilities following WWII? The Manhattan Project's intelligence team had penetrated the Third Reich and knew every detail of the Nazi 's plan for an atomic bomb. What changed and what went wrong?

Newly Released and Forthcoming Books of the Week

Democracy in Danger: How Hackers and Activists Exposed Fatal Flaws in the Election System
by Jake Braun
(Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Sep 2019)

"Jake Braun has done a great service to the Nation with the publication of this book. There can be no doubt about the threat to our democracy from cyber space and the immediate need for us to get beyond politics to confront and defeat this threat. Jake's journey of discovery and action sets the stage for the future. The book reflects my strong view on the need for immediate action." —Francis X Taylor, Brig General, USAF (Retired), Former Under Secretary of Homeland Security for Intelligence and Analysis (2014 to 2017)

"Democracy in Danger reads like a spy thriller, but feels like a horror movie. In his brilliant book, Jake Braun relates, in details emerging from his front row seat, the too-slow recognition of the vulnerabilities of our election system well before 2016 and how a series of missteps, blinders, bureacracy and politics led to the events surrounding the 2016 election. But all is not lost. Braun shows us how stakeholders, election officials and even hackers are building a community with one, and only one, goal: to save our elections and therefore our democracy. An engaging, detailed and honest account, Democracy in Danger is an essential read for those who have the same mission." —Juliette Kayyem, former Assistant Secretary Department of Homeland Security, current Faculty at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.

Codeword OVERLORD: Axis Espionage and the D-Day Landings
by Nigel West
(The History Press, Sep 2019)

The Allied invasion of Europe during summer 1944 was widely expected and it fell to the Axis intelligence services to provide High Command with advance warning of the precise date and place of the landings. Using cryptanalysis of Allied signals, undercover agents and ships, and photographic evidence, Axis intelligence was pitted directly against their Allied counterparts, who actively tried to create a decoy and aim their enemies at the wrong location. The success of Operation Overlord has played a large part in historians usually disparaging the German army as incompetent and corrupt. However, recently declassified documents suggest a different story. Spies on the ground, codebreakers from across the Axis, and photo intelligence: theirs was a sophisticated, integrated intelligence system that was supremely conscious of the Allies' counter-intelligence schemes. For the first time, acclaimed intelligence author (and AFIO Honorary Board Member) Nigel West provides the full, true story of Axis intelligence and how they affected the events of the D-Day landings.

JUST BROUGHT TO OUR ATTENTION — Released in 2013

Meeting Steve Canyon: ...and flying with the CIA in Laos
by Karl L. Polifka
(CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, Sep 2013)

A personal account of a USAF Forward Air Controller in a remote highland province in South Vietnam in 1969 and how he met "Steve Canyon" and transitioned to the "secret" war in Laos, living with the CIA and the Hmong clans and having near-complete control over the use of US airpower. This account has many illustrations of the grinding stress of intense combat in Laos, and the periodic clashes with the distant headquarters that had little knowledge of an extremely complex combat environment and was more focused on control rather than results.

Book may be ordered here.



Help Write the History...

AFIO's history project "when intelligence made a difference" has published in Intelligencer the first four articles. Two by AFIO's president emeritus Gene Poteat, "George Washington, Spymaster Extraordinaire" and "Layfayette and the French Intrigue to Lead the American Revolution." Ken Daigler added "George Washington's Attacks on Trenton and Princeton, 1776-77." Swedish researcher Michael Fredholm contributed "How Sweden Chose Sides" in the post-WW II era between the West and the Soviet Union.

Two months after publication these articles will be posted on the AFIO website for other interested readers who do not receive the Intelligencer.

Many have contributed ideas for articles, some of which AFIO is looking for authors to address. Let me know if you are interested in contributing a 2,000 word article on the following topics:  

  • SHARK – the breaking of the U-boat codes;
  • Richard Sorge's contributions to Russia's strategy for the Battle of Moscow – 1942;
  • the role of SIGINT in starving the Afrika Korps of men and supplies;
  • how intelligence contributed to Desert Storm;
  • intelligence and the Cuban Missile Crisis;
  • the thwarting of Qaddafi's nuclear program; and
  • how intelligence uncovered Russian election interference in 2016.
Authors for the above, or those with subject matter recommendations and additional ideas for articles, should email: peter.oleson@afio.com

Section I - INTELLIGENCE HIGHLIGHTS

Iran Jails British National for 10 Years on Spying Charges. Iran's hardline national security establishment continued its drive to target dual nationals, sentencing a UK national of Iranian origin to 12 years in prison on espionage allegations and punishing two others, including a UK resident, on similar charges.

Anoosheh Ashoori , a British-Iranian dual national was accused of passing on intelligence to Israel's spy agency, according to spokesman of Iran's judiciary, which is dominated by hardline clerics and jurists.

"Anoosheh Ashoori had been connected to the Mossad and had relayed a lot of intelligence to that country," judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Esmaeili told reporters during a weekly briefing, according to the Tasnim news agency.

"[Mr Ashoori] has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for spying and two years for illicitly acquiring money." [Read more: Daraghi/Independent/27August2019]

China Formally Accuses Australian writer Yang Hengjun of Espionage. China said Tuesday it had formally arrested an Australian writer and academic on suspicion of espionage, the latest case in which Beijing appears to be taking foreign hostages as leverage in disputes with Western governments.

Yang Hengjun, a novelist and former Chinese official who gave up his nationality and immigrated to Australia, had written blog posts pushing for greater democratic and human rights for Chinese citizens. But he had also taken citizenship in a U.S.-allied nation that has largely sided with Washington in a global clash over Chinese-made technology.

The case adds to worsening friction between Beijing and Western democracies, including Australia, as the Communist Party takes increasingly assertive action to counter what it perceives as U.S.-led efforts to contain China's rise.

Australia was "very concerned and disappointed" to learn that Yang had been formally arrested Friday on espionage allegations and that he would remain in criminal detention in China, Foreign Minister Marise Payne said Tuesday. [Read more: Fifeld/WashingtonPost/27August2019]

NZSIS Intelligence Officers Talk About Their Job as Agency Seeks New Spies. Guns disguised as watches? Fancy cars? Endless international travel? Who hasn't dreamed of being a spy?

The New Zealand Intelligence Service is currently on a recruitment drive for those considering a career change into the secretive world of intelligence.

They are advertising for both surveillance officers - who can earn up to $88,000 - and intelligence specialists - who can earn up to $103,000.

In a rare move, the agency put forward two active staff members to talk to Stuff about what it would be like to join their ranks. [Read more: Stuff/23August2019]

Why the Intel Community Wants to Improve its Top-Secret Intranet. As analysts rely more on an intelligence community intranet to transmit top-secret information, the network needs to be modernized with cybersecurity in mind, said Jean Schaffer, chief of cyber and enterprise operations at the Defense Intelligence Agency.

"We really need to be looking at [Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System] in terms of an overhaul of the architecture and how we would lay it out to make sure we are meeting the needs," Schaeffer said at the annual DoDIIS conference in Tampa Aug. 20.

The Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System, or JWICS, is essentially an intranet used by the intelligence community to transmit top-secret data. But as the number of users and amount of data on the network increases, Schaffer said the system needs to be overhauled to ensure it remains secure. [Read more: Strout/FifthDomain/22August2019]

Intelligence Agencies Warn of 'Unprecedented Scale' of Foreign Spying within Australia. Foreign espionage is taking place in Australia at a greater rate than any other time in history.

The stark warning from the nation's domestic intelligence agency follows accusations the east African nation of Rwanda has a network of spies working to supress political dissent in refugee communities.

Intelligence experts say the public doesn't fully understand the extent of the threat, or how easily migrants and refugees can be recruited as spies, often against their will.

An Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) spokesperson said foreign interference and espionage was happening at an "unprecedented scale" but refused to detail tactics used to recruit refugees and migrants. [Read more: Greenbank/ABCNews/25August2019]

Former Czech Foreign Intelligence Service Deputy Head Charged with Fraud. The former deputy head of the Foreign Intelligence Service of the Czech Republic (ÚZSI) Zdeněk Blahut has been charged with fraud and abuse of office, the Public Prosecutor's Office in Prague reported on Friday. No further details were released.

According to the news site idnes.cz Blahut's detention is part of an ongoing investigation into the financial management of the Foreign Intelligence Service. The news site claims the police also questioned the former head of the Foreign Intelligence Service Jiří Šašek and the former interior minister Milan Chovanec, who appointed Blahut to office. Chovanec later dismissed the claim.

The Foreign Intelligence Service's principal goal is to provide foreign intelligence vital for the security and protection of the Czech Republic's foreign policy interests and economic interests.

Blahut served as its deputy head from September 2014 until January of this year. [Read more: Lazarová/RadioPraha/23August2019]

Lanka's New Army chief Says He'll Improve the Intelligence Wing. The Sri Lankan Army will seek to enhance its intelligence apparatus in the future, the newly-appointed Commander Lieutenant General Shavendra de Silva said on Monday.

Speaking to reporters for the first time since his appointment the Army Commander acknowledged the importance of enhancing Army intelligence to meet new national security challenges.

"Intelligence is vital, we deploy our troops and conduct missions based on actionable intelligence," he said, outlining plans to improve the efficiency of the military intelligence arm and ensure there is better synergy between intelligence stakeholders.

"Our intelligence capabilities have always been good but we can improve," he told the Daily FT, explaining that special attention needs to be paid to filling gaps in technology. [Read more: NewsInAsia/27August2019]


Section II - CONTEXT & PRECEDENCE

Why the CIA Doesn't Spy On the UAE. The United Arab Emirates finances the military leader trying to topple a United Nations-recognized government in Libya. It helps lead a coalition of nations imposing an economic blockade of Qatar, despite U.S. calls to resolve the dispute. It hired former staffers of the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) as elite hackers to spy in a program that included Americans as surveillance targets, a Reuters investigation found this year.

And yet, in a highly unusual practice, the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) does not spy on the UAE's government, three former CIA officials familiar with the matter told Reuters, creating what some critics call a dangerous blind spot in U.S. intelligence.

The CIA's posture isn't new. What's changed is the nature of the tiny but influential OPEC nation's intervention across the Middle East and Africa - fighting wars, running covert operations and using its financial clout to reshape regional politics in ways that often run counter to U.S. interests, according to the sources and foreign policy experts.

'Persistent Engagement': The Phrase Driving A More Assertive U.S. Spy Agency. The head of the National Security Agency, Army Gen. Paul Nakasone, has a catchphrase: "persistent engagement."

This covers a broad spectrum of cyber activities at the nation's largest spy agency. But at its core, it means relentlessly tracking adversaries, and increasingly, taking offensive action against them.

"That's the idea of persistent engagement. This idea of enabling and acting," Nakasone recently told NPR. When he took over the agency last year, he said that rivals didn't fear the U.S. in the cyber realm, and he intended to change that.

To get a glimpse of how Nakasone is fostering a more aggressive cyber strategy, NPR paid a visit to the expansive compound in Ft. Meade, Md. [Read more: Myre/NPR/26August2019]

The Russian Spy who Posed as a Canadian for More than 20 Years. "A spy has to be an actor, but an actor that doesn't need a public or a stage, and doesn't require the approval of others," says Elena Vavilova, as she sips a cappuccino in a Moscow cafe.

Vavilova acted the part of a Canadian woman named Tracy Foley, an identity stolen for her by the KGB, for two decades. Almost no one knew her real identity, not even her own children. She was an "illegal", a deep-cover Russian operative sent to the west along with her husband Andrei Bezrukov, who used the name Donald Heathfield.

Vavilova and Bezrukov were arrested at their Boston home in 2010, part of a group of 10 Russian spies detained by the FBI, most of them illegals living in the US as ordinary Americans or Canadians. They were deported to Russia in a spy swap that included media favourite Anna Chapman and also involved four Russians accused of spying for the west travelling in the other direction, including Sergei Skripal, who was infamously poisoned in Salisbury last year.

Vavilova has written a fictionalised account of her spying career, called The Woman Who Can Keep Secrets, and agreed to meet the Guardian at a cafe in central Moscow, the first time any of the deep-cover illegals has spoken to non-Russian media since their return to the country.

'The Spy': Release Date, Plot, Cast, and Everything You Need to Know About the Netflix Series. Netflix has finally announced the release date for its much-awaited spy series 'The Spy'. Inspired by the real-life story of former Mossad agent Eli Cohen, 'The Spy' follows Sacha Baron Cohen as he successfully goes undercover in early 1960s Syria and gains the trust of the military leaders to give out confidential information to him. All that Eli wanted to do was to serve his country and Baron Cohen brings this character to life in Netflix's upcoming limited series 'The Spy'.

Here is everything you need to know about 'The Spy'. [Read more: Salvi/MEAWW/25August2019]

Imported Repression: How Cuba Taught Venezuela to Quash Military Dissent. Imposing surveillance, fear and repression, Cuba helped Venezuela revamp its armed forces and military intelligence service. Reuters reveals how two agreements, undisclosed since 2008, let Havana remake Venezuela's security apparatus. [Read more: Berwick/Reuters/22August2019]


Section III - COMMENTARY

China's Spies Are on the Offensive. In early 2017, Kevin Mallory was struggling financially. After years of drawing a government salary as a member of the military and as a CIA and Defense Intelligence Agency officer, he was behind on his mortgage and $230,000 in debt. Though he had, like many veteran intelligence officials, ventured into the private sector, where the pay can be considerably better, things still weren't going well; his consulting business was floundering.

Then, prosecutors said, he received a message on LinkedIn, where he had more than 500 connections. It had come from a Chinese recruiter with whom Mallory had five mutual connections. The recruiter, according to the message, worked for a think tank in China, where Mallory, who spoke fluent Mandarin, had been based for part of his career. The think tank, the recruiter said, was interested in Mallory's foreign-policy expertise. The LinkedIn message led to a phone call with a man who called himself Michael Yang. According to the FBI, the initial conversations that would lead Mallory down a path of betrayal were conducted in the bland language of professional courtesy. That February, according to a search warrant, Yang sent Mallory an email requesting "another short phone call with you to address several points." Mallory replied, "So I can be prepared, will we be speaking via Skype or will you be calling my mobile device?"

Soon after, Mallory was on a plane to meet Yang in Shanghai. He would later tell the FBI he suspected that Yang was not a think-tank employee, but a Chinese intelligence officer, which apparently was okay by him. [Read more: Giglio/TheAtlantic/26August2019]

Seoul's Pullout from Intelligence Pact Sows Seeds of Instability. South Korea's withdrawal from an intelligence-sharing agreement with Japan is an impulsive decision that risks further destabilizing the security situation in Northeast Asia. It is especially disappointing at a time when North Korea is launching missiles and China is building up its military.

The need for the General Security of Military Information Agreement is greater than ever. Pyongyang has carried out several launches of short-range ballistic missiles and other projectiles and has improved the sophistication of its arsenal with such technology as guidance systems. Recent reports indicate that the North has developed a submarine capable of launching ballistic missiles, which could be used as a delivery system for nuclear warheads.

The pact offers many benefits to South Korea, complementing its military weak points. Seoul can view up-to-date images from Japanese satellites, as well as take advantage of the exceptional monitoring and detection capabilities of Japanese anti-submarine patrol aircraft, for example.

It should be no surprise that Seoul has been criticized for sacrificing these advantages seemingly to spite Tokyo. [Read more: Nikkei/27August2019]

CAVEAT: AFIO does not "vet" or endorse research inquiries, career announcements, or job offers. Reasonable-sounding inquiries and career offerings are published as a service to our members, and for researchers, educators, and subscribers. You are urged to exercise your usual caution and good judgment when responding, and should verify the source independently before deciding if you wish to supply a resume, career data, or personal information. Your participation in research aids the Intelligence Community and future officers.

STANDING RESEARCH PROJECT BY AFIO: Professor/Researcher Seeks Identification of Events Significantly Affected by Intelligence for "When Intelligence Made a Difference" - a new AFIO Project

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.

AFIO's history project "when intelligence made a difference" has published in Intelligencer the first four articles. Two by AFIO's president emeritus Gene Poteat, "George Washington, Spymaster Extraordinaire" and "Layfayette and the French Intrigue to Lead the American Revolution." Ken Daigler added "George Washington's Attacks on Trenton and Princeton, 1776-77." Swedish researcher Michael Fredholm contributed "How Sweden Chose Sides" in the post-WW II era between the West and the Soviet Union.

Two months after publication these articles will be posted on the AFIO website for other interested readers who do not receive the Intelligencer.

Many have contributed ideas for articles, some of which AFIO is looking for authors to address. Let me know if you are interested in contributing a 2,000 word article on the following topics:  

  • SHARK – the breaking of the U-boat codes;
  • Richard Sorge's contributions to Russia's strategy for the Battle of Moscow – 1942;
  • the role of SIGINT in starving the Afrika Korps of men and supplies;
  • how intelligence contributed to Desert Storm;
  • intelligence and the Cuban Missile Crisis;
  • the thwarting of Qaddafi's nuclear program; and
  • how intelligence uncovered Russian election interference in 2016.
Authors for the above, or those with subject matter recommendations and additional ideas for articles, should email: peter.oleson@afio.com

If you are interested in contributing an article, 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.

Wednesday 18 September 2019, 5:30 p.m. - New York, NY - AFIO NY Metro Chapter hosts Larry Loftis, on SOE Hero, Odette Sansom, in his book Code Name: Lise

Larry Loftis is the author of Code Name: Lise―The True Story of the Woman Who Became WWII's Most Highly Decorated Spy, the story of Odette Sansom (1912-1995), a Frenchwoman living in England, wife of an Englishman and mother of 3 daughters, who was recruited into Britain's Special Operations Executive (SOE) to conduct espionage in France during WW II with her commander, and yet-to-be second husband, Peter Churchill. Leaving her daughters in a convent school and with relatives, she joined the rigorous training program, becoming proficient with a wide range of weapons, learning the fine points of spycraft, and perfecting her new identity with the code name Lise. In France she proved herself fearless. Hunted by the Germans, in 1943, Odette and Peter were captured, imprisoned, and tortured. Loftis describes Odette's ordeal in grisly detail. Two lies saved her: She pretended that she and Peter were married (they would be after the war) and that Peter was related to Winston Churchill. In defeat, the Gestapo hoped to use her as a bargaining chip.

Wednesday 4 December 2019, 5:30 p.m. - New York, NY - AFIO NY Metro Chapter hosts CIA Officer (Ret) Dr. John A. Gentry discussing "IC Political Activism since 2016 -- Origins and Implications."

Partisan political activism by current and former intelligence officers since mid-2016 is the largest and most significant politicization of intelligence by intelligence officers in U.S. history. This presentation will explore the causes and the wholly negative consequences of this new form of politicization for the IC and the country.

Dr. John A. Gentry was for 12 years an intelligence analyst at the CIA, where he worked mainly economic issues associated with the Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact countries; for two of those years he was senior analyst on the staff of the National Intelligence Officer for Warning. He is a retired U.S. Army Reserve officer, with most assignments in special operations and intelligence arenas. On active duty, he was executive officer of a special forces operational detachment. As a reservist, he was mobilized and spent much of 1996 as a civil affairs officer in Bosnia. Dr. Gentry also is an adjunct associate professor with the School of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University. He formerly taught at the College of International Security Affairs, National Defense University, at the National Intelligence University, and at George Mason University. His research interests primarily are in intelligence and security studies. He publishes frequently in Intelligence and National Security and International Journal of Intelligence and CounterIntelligence. Georgetown University Press published his co-authored book, Strategic Warning Intelligence: History, Challenges and Prospects, in early 2019. He is a member of the Editorial Committee of the International Journal of Intelligence and CounterIntelligence. He is adjunct professor at Georgetown University.

Gift Suggestions:

AFIO's Guide to the Study of IntelligenceAFIO's 788-page Guide to the Study of Intelligence. Peter C. Oleson, Editor, also makes a good gift. View authors and table of contents 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.
For a printed, bound copy, it is $95 which includes Fedex shipping to a CONUS (US-based) address.
