Newly Released and Forthcoming Books of the Week

Resistance (At All Costs): How Trump Haters Are Breaking America
by Kimberley Strassel
(Twelve, Oct 2019)

It's not President Trump who is violating democratic norms but his overzealous opponents, according to this scathing takedown of anti-Trump elites. Wall Street Journal columnist Strassel spotlights politicians, government officials, judges, and journalists whose attacks on Trump's presidency, she argues, transgress decency and legality. —Publishers Weekly

Strassel argues how the all-out "Resistance" has become dangerously reckless in its obstruction of Trump. Among the most consistent and aggressive criticisms of Donald Trump is that he is a threat to American democracy — a human wrecking ball demolishing our most basic values and institutions. Resistance (At All Costs) makes the opposite case — that it is Trump's critics, in their zeal to oppose the president, who are undermining our foundations.
From that bizarre and unprecedented jump-the-gun FBI counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign, to bureaucratic sabotage, to media partisanship, to the drive-by character assassination of Trump nominee Brett Kavanaugh, the president's foes have thrown aside norms, due process, and the rule of law.
Strassel crisply shows that the reaction to Trump will prove far more consequential and damaging to our nation long-term than Trump's time in office.

Targeted: The Cambridge Analytica Whistleblower's Inside Story of How Big Data, Trump, and Facebook Broke Democracy and How It Can Happen Again
by Brittany Kaiser
(Harper, Oct 2019)

When Obama's campaign used online schemes to advance their messages to carefully selected audiences, the high tech service firms and staffers were praised by the media for the important role data analysis -- and they -- played in his election.

Four years later, in 2016, we have an election by someone the media detests: Donald Trump. And someone who had the temerity to use the same —albeit more modern—online Big Data schemes. Yet the unexpected (and, to them, unacceptable) outcome was quickly deemed "unfair, out-of-bounds, illegal, and dishonest." One of those data firms playing a role was Cambridge Analytica — employing clever techniques on Facebook and other social media which online advertisers use every day. And continue to use. Have they "Broken Democracy"? Is Capitalism finished because of their continuing goals to know their customers to sell more goods that would interest them? Of course not, and neither did C.A.

This goosey account by change-of-heart, lost soul Brittany Kaiser, who took a job in a firm doing Republican political research [Why?], expects readers to be surprised that she was shocked at Big Data's efficiency and ingenuity when used by Cambridge Analytica on behalf of their clients. Kaiser is now convinced that refined data parsing and online interviews of subjects (the core mission of data analysis/marketing firms) is unfair because knowing people too well makes it easy to pitch them whatever they want to believe...or buy. Sounds like good advertising and marketing research to us. Done to us daily. And most benefit because it distills the online clutter that otherwise rains upon us.

This "whistleblower"—over her head and out of her league in political research firms on the Right [make that any research firm]—was quick to return to her nonprofit agitator roots to join that chorus singing a familiar tune: The election was "stolen" and only won through Russian interference and propaganda, and through the clever, sophisticated analysis and targeting provided by firms like Cambridge Analytica. Of course, it's all "unfair" until the other side [her side] wins again using these same methods: then it is de rigueur.

The Berlin Mission: The American Who Resisted Nazi Germany from Within
by Richard Breitman
(PublicAffairs, Oct 2019)

A vivid chronicle of 1930s Germany conveyed through the life of Raymond Geist (1885-1955), United States consul in Berlin from 1929 to 1939, a lesser-known historical figure.

Geist, an unlikely hero, best analyzed the threat posed by Nazi Germany and predicted the horrors to come. Geist handled visas for emigrants to the US, including his expediting of the exit of Albert Einstein just before Hitler came to power. Once the Nazis began to oppress Jews and others, Geist extricated Sigmund Freud from Vienna and Geist quickly grasped the scale and urgency of the growing humanitarian crisis which few American officials back home did.

Hiding his gay relationship with a German, Geist challenged the Nazi police state whenever it abused Americans in Germany or threatened US interests. He made greater use of a restrictive US immigration quotas and secured visas for hundreds of unaccompanied children. All the while, he maintained a working relationship with high Nazi officials such as Himmler, Heydrich, and Göring.

While US ambassadors and consuls general cycled in and out, Geist remained in Berlin for a decade. An invaluable analyst and problem solver, he was the first American official to warn that what lay ahead for Germany's Jews was what later would become known as the Holocaust.

Section I - INTELLIGENCE HIGHLIGHTS

NATO Discusses Improved Cooperation Between Intelligence Community and Centres of Excellence. On 22 October 2019, the Assistant Secretary General for Intelligence and Security, Ambassador Arndt Freytag von Loringhoven, the Deputy Assistant Secretary General for Intelligence, Major General Raúl Escribano, and the Supreme Allied Command Transformation Representative in Europe, Brigadier General Eduard Simion, hosted 12 Centres of Excellence (COEs), at NATO HQ, to discuss improved cooperation on common areas of interest.

NATO faces the most complex and unpredictable security environment in a generation, with enduring challenges and threats from all strategic directions; from state and non-state actors; from military forces; and from terrorist, cyber, and hybrid attacks. In response, NATO is implementing major adaptations to its posture and structures to make sure it remains flexible, ready and robust.

At the Brussels Summit in 2018, Allied leaders agreed to enhance NATO's intelligence, bolster its strategic awareness and advance planning to support the Alliance's decision-making and actions. [Read more: NATO/22October2019]

Russia to Decide Soon on Freeing Convicted Norwegian. Russia will soon decide about the freeing of a Norwegian citizen serving a 14-year sentence for espionage in Russian jail, Sergey Lavrov , the country's foreign minister said, Friday.

"Frode Berg has been convicted of espionage and has sought pardon. The pardon has been considered," Lavrov told reporters in Norway. "It wouldn't take long to reach that decision."

Berg, a retired border inspector, was arrested in Moscow in December 2017 on espionage charges for collecting information about Russian nuclear submarines. [Read more: Olsen/AP/29October2019]

Russian Subs Honing Stealth Skills in Major North Atlantic Drill, Says Norwegian Intel. At least eight nuclear-powered submarines sailed out from their homeports on the Kola Peninsula last week, the Norwegian military intelligence says to NRK.

The aim of the massive operation is to get as far out to the North Atlantic as possible without being discovered by NATO, the intelligence service informs to NRK. Such maneuvers haven't been seen from the Northern Fleet since the days of the Cold War.

The operation started early last week, before Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Commander of the Northern Fleet, Vice-Admiral Aleksandr Moiseyev visited Kirkenes in northern Norway last Friday. [Read more: Nilsen/TheBarentsObserver/29October2019]

SBI Starts Investigation Against Ex-First Deputy Head Of External Intelligence Service Semochko. The State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) has launched an investigation against former first deputy head of the External Intelligence Service/former head of a department of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) in Kyiv and Kyiv region, Serhii Semochko.

This follows from a reply of the SBI to respective request from the Ukrainian News Agency.

The Prosecutor General's Office (PGO) has taken the case from the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) and passed it to the SBI.

Sri Lanka Bombings: Spy Chief Lambasted in Damning Report. A damning Sri Lankan parliamentary investigation has outlined extensive lapses of intelligence and coordination before the Easter Sunday bombings that killed 269 people, and concluded the spy chief was primarily to blame for the failure to stop the attacks.

The report, released on Wednesday, found the former head of the state intelligence service, Nilantha Jayawardena, had received information about possible attacks as early as 4 April, 17 days before the suicide bombings took place, but was slow to share the intelligence with relevant officials.

It said he was invited to share details of the specific warning of an impending attack at a coordination meeting of leading intelligence officials on 9 April, but Jayawardena said he would include the information in a special report he would send later. The report was not subsequently shared with most of the officials in the room, the committee found. [Read more: Safi/TheGuardian/24October2019]

Section II - CONTEXT & PRECEDENCE

The Spy Who Vanished - And What His Case Reveals About South Africa. A few months ago, South Africa recalled its ambassador to Japan. He promptly vanished.

This was no ordinary diplomat. Thulani Dlomo, also known as Silence Dlomo in some of his several diplomatic passports, was one of South Africa's most powerful spies - and a close ally of former president Jacob Zuma. Today, he still cannot be found, raising more questions about the illicit influence of espionage networks in post-apartheid South Africa.

For five years, until Mr. Zuma rewarded him with a plum appointment to Japan in 2017, Mr. Dlomo had controlled a "special operations" unit at South Africa's State Security Agency. It became a parallel spy agency, operating in the shadows to serve Mr. Zuma's personal agenda and defend his political power until he finally resigned from the presidency amid a corruption scandal last year.

Mr. Dlomo's story - his loyalty to Mr. Zuma's ambitions, his use of intelligence assets for allegedly illegal action against Mr. Zuma's critics and his mysterious movements this year - illustrates the covert tactics that have helped leaders of the ruling African National Congress neutralize their opponents for decades.

In World War II, Serving Jesus While Spying for the United States. Laying the political groundwork for Gen. George Patton's North African landing of 1942, a top intelligence agent promised local communists that the United States would help them overthrow the government of Spain's dictator, Francisco Franco. The Americans would even drive the Spanish out of Morocco and thereby facilitate Arab independence. William Eddy, a member of the Office of Strategic Services, America's first foreign intelligence agency, knew these were lies. Later in life, the devout Episcopalian's conscience troubled him, and he wondered if he, a magnificently effective spy, or anyone in the OSS or later the CIA, could "ever again become a wholly honorable man."

Eddy is one of four deeply religious American Protestants who are the subjects of Matthew Avery Sutton's arresting and informative book, "Double Crossed: The Missionaries Who Spied for the United States During the Second World War." All served in the OSS, the World War II predecessor to the Central Intelligence Agency. Sutton adds to our understanding of the clandestine services by revealing the little-known role of missionaries in these operations. [Read more: Hollinger/WashingtonPost/24October2019]

Spies Like Us: The Spooks of Georgetown. "The advantage of obtaining the earliest and best Intelligence of the designs of the Enemy...have induced me to entrust the management of this business to your care." So wrote Gen. George Washington in 1777 from his headquarters in Morristown, New Jersey, to New York merchant Nathaniel Sackett.

Yes, the father of our country and namesake of our nation's capital was also America's original spymaster.

Tales of spies and espionage continue to intrigue the average citizen, perhaps more than ever. To be a spy is to inhabit "a wilderness of mirrors," a phrase attributed to James Jesus Angleton, oracle of the Central Intelligence Agency. It is to blend in - not at all to be like a James Bond or a Mata Hari.

It is generally agreed that there are more spies in Washington, D.C., than in any other city in the world. The International Spy Museum, now located at L'Enfant Plaza, estimates there are 10,000 spies in D.C. - meaning not just official operators but their numerous associates and various contractors involved with a foreign power The museum's collection is serious and extensive, but also gives a nod to popular culture; James Bond's Aston Martin is near the entrance.

When 007 Helped Plot the Invasion of Spain. Following the 1940 defeat of the British and French forces by the Nazis in Norway, it was recognized that if the war was to be won, there was an urgent need for accurate, updated maps.

English pilots were unequipped with the vital information required to hit their targets, and many returned without dropping their bombs. The thousands of maps produced during World War I were obsolete, a fact that UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill was aware of.

Shortly before the British offensive to take control of Norway's iron, Rear Admiral John H. Godfrey from the Naval Intelligence Department and his assistant Ian Fleming, who would go on to write the popular James Bond spy novels, got in touch with the prestigious geographer Kenneth Mason to help with the provision of up-to-date maps for the Allies.

New details were added, thanks to the efforts of spies and collaborators as well as images taken by the Royal Air Force Aerial Reconnaissance division. [Read more: Bono/ElPais/28October2019]



Section III - COMMENTARY

Those Who Silently Serve Our Country. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, when I was a teenager, police were often called "pigs" and the "military-industrial complex" was viewed as a threat to American democracy. Lest we forget, police all over the country were openly mistreating minorities at that time and young men were being forced to serve in a war most, particularly those compelled to serve, did not believe in.

There was deep distrust of our nation's intelligence community, the National Security Agency and Central Intelligence Agency, and federal law enforcement, the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Yet, even at this dark moment in our history, there were people who silently served this country - devoid of any political agenda. I know this, now, because my father, then - unbeknownst to me - was one of them.

He disappeared, was captured and murdered by Idi Amin, the President of Uganda in 1971 investigating, on behalf of our government, hundreds of murders committed by Amin and his soldiers in the garrison town of Mbarara. [Read more: Siedle/Forbes/22October2019]

Russia And America Barely Avoided An Horrific Nuclear War In 1983. Key point: The scare did not lead to war, but the risk was real.

In 1983, the United States and the Soviet Union came dangerously close to nuclear war. That was the conclusion of a highly classified report issued in 1990 by the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board, or PFIAB.

The board, which conducts oversight of the U.S. intelligence community for the White House, interviewed over 75 American and British officials and examined scads of intelligence assessments and other official documents from the early 1980s. The report it produced, entitled "The Soviet ‘War Scare,' " served as a retrospective assessment of what many believe was the most dangerous period of the Cold War since the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Decision-Making Tips From a Former Spy.  A spy's job is to get secret information without the other side knowing you were there. You're trained for it, but no training can remove the risk: it's dangerous, and people die.

The worst part of it is that none of it matters, if the next step doesn't happen: the intelligence you collect is useless, unless it goes through an analytic process, which weights the intelligence, puts it in context and combines it with other data.

And that analysis won't matter either, if the next step doesn't happen: a decision. If intelligence and analysis don't inform a decision, all that risk and danger collecting it was for nothing.

When I moved into business, I saw a lot of data was being collected for nothing, and a lot of money was being spent on analysis that was never seen. [Read more: [Braddock/ManagementToday/27October2019]

Lou enlisted in the Army during WWII at the age of 18 and later served in the Korean War as a staff intelligence officer under General Mark W. Clark in Tokyo, Japan. He retired from the Army Reserves as a major.
Lou graduated from the University of Illinois, received his master's from Long Island University, and his Ph.D. from St. John's University, N.Y.
He then went on to serve as a history professor (eventually as emeritus) for 30 years at the State University of New York at Farmingdale, Long Island, NY, where he taught thousands of students who appreciated the way he enlivened history of Western civilization classes with art and literature through the early adoption of multimedia presentations. His mentors and peers developed close friendships, which they maintained over the miles and years.
He was the author of "Betrayal in Vietnam" (1976), and was a specialist in Vietnamese history and politics for the Future Heritage Foundation, served as an adviser to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was a visiting lecturer at the U.S. Special Warfare Center in Fort Bragg, N.C., and a visiting scholar at the Hoover Institute of Stanford University, CA. He also was an active AFIO member.
When Lou moved to Farmingdale, Long Island, in the 1960s, he spent days at Jones Beach visiting historical and military sites up and down the East Coast. He learned to surf and owned a boat. The family eventually moved to Northport. He had an appreciation for Irish culture, including Irish music, and was a director of the Irish American Society in Queens, Long Island, and a member of the Sons of the American Revolution.
After Lou and Helen retired to Tucson, AZ they divorced after 40 years of marriage. Lou made many new friends who were also interested in history, arts, and politics. He served as president of the Pima County Republican Club and as VP of the Tucson Conservative Forum. He was a tireless researcher and stayed informed on current issues and was frequently-invited to lecture in the Tucson (AZ) and Champaign (IL) areas on national defense issues.
In 1998, Lou reunited with a friend, Dorothy "Dottie" Cantrell (nee McKinley), who first met as undergraduates at the University of Illinois, and they married. The couple became snowbirds wintering in Tucson and summering in Champaign. During their 21 year marriage, travelling, visiting offspring and family, cruising and overseas tours made them many new friends and retained the old ones.
Survivors include his second wife, Dottie, a daughter and son (from his first marriage to Helen), and other family.
A celebration of Lou's life will be at 4 p.m. Friday, 1 November 2019, at New Horizon United Methodist Church, 3002 W Bloomington Rd, Champaign, IL. Burial with military rites will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, 2 November 2019, at Oakridge-Glen Oak Cemetery, Hillside, IL. Condolences may be offered at morganmemorailhome.com.

Saturday, 9 November 2019, 11:30am - 2pm - Indialantic, FL - Rudy Enders on 1961 Bay of Pigs Operations - at this Florida Satellite Chapter meeting

Guest Speaker is AFIO Florida Satellite Chapter Member Rudy Enders.
American efforts to disable or overthrow the Castro regime in Cuba did not end with the failed Bay of Pigs operation in 1961. CIA was tasked by the National Security Council Special Group to continue infiltrating Cuban exile teams into Cuba to recruit, organize and train indigenous forces to wage a guerilla warfare campaign designed to overthrow the communist government. This led to a number of covert CIA maritime operations to insert teams and resupply them, with the hand of the US government hidden or plausibly denied. Our speaker will relate his experience in the conduct of at least one of these operations.
TIMING: 11:30 AM - 12:15 PM: Social Hour, greet old, new members and guests. Cash bar. 12:15 PM: Sit-Down lunch

Thursday, 21 November 2019, 11:30 a.m. - Colorado Springs, CO - The AFIO Rocky Mountain Chapter hosts Edin Mujkic, discussing "The Balkans: A Joker in Putin's Sleeve"

Synopsis: This presentation by Edin Mujkic discusses Russian interference in Balkan politics, the American and European role in the Balkans, as well as the potential for escalation of the situation toward violence. From interference in the United States domestic politics to support of some of the most brutal regimes in the world, Russia is again the focus of attention. Whether it is media attention, or attention of intelligence and national security professionals, there is a consensus that Vladimir Putin is engaged in a campaign of undermining the post-World War II international theater and generally the Western democracies. While attention where Putin's next move will be, is usually focused on the Baltics or the Middle East, the situation in the Balkans is not generating much attention. The Balkans, always on the periphery of European politics, until it explodes, is fertile ground for Vladimir Putin to exploit its weaknesses and complicate European and world affairs. The political quagmire in Bosnia and Herzegovina that does not have a government since elections in the Fall of 2018, relations between Serbia and Kosovo, the role of Croatia, a NATO member, in internal affairs of Bosnia and Herzegovina, are not only exploited, but directly influenced by Moscow.

Biography: Edin Mujkic is an Assistant Professor in the School of Public Affairs for University of Colorado Colorado Springs. He is also a UCCS Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Faculty Fellow for 2017-2018. Edin received his BA from Auburn University Montgomery, majored in Political Science, with a minor in Criminal Justice. Edin followed up his Bachelor's Degree with a Master's in International Relations (2008) and was a Prince Khalid bin Sultan fellow. Upon completing his Master's degree, Edin entered the Public Administration and Policy Ph.D. program at Auburn University graduating December 2012. While earning his PhD, Edin furthered his education studying Strategic Leadership and National Security at Air War College, Maxwell Air Force Base, AL. Edin is continuing his research focusing on national security, defense, homeland security and U.S. foreign policy.

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.

Thursday, 5 December 2019, 12:30 - 2 pm - Los Angeles, CA - AFIO Los Angeles Chapter meeting features Dr John Gans discussing "White House Warriors: How the NSC Transformed the American Way of War."

Dr. John Gans will be the guest speaker for the Los Angeles Chapter of AFIO and discuss key topics of his newly published book White House Warriors: How the National Security Council Transformed the American Way of War, which covers the people and power of the National Security Council staff.
Gans is Perry World House's Director of Communications and Research. In addition to leading Perry World House's Graduate Associates program, he teaches Penn undergraduate and graduate students. Prior to joining Perry World House, he was the chief speechwriter to Secretary of Defense Ash Carter at the Pentagon. In addition to leading the writing team at the Defense Department, Gans served as senior speechwriter for Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew.
In 2019, Gans published White House Warriors: How the National Security Council Transformed the American Way of War, which the Wall Street Journal said was a "bottom-up history," The New Republic called "enlightening," and Lawfare concluded it was "rollicking and compellingly told." Gans earned his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies.

We look forward to your attendance. Please mark your calendar and your spouse or other guests are welcomed.

Tuesday, 31 October 2019, 1-4pm – Washington, DC – Meet an F-4 Pilot: Mark Hewitt – at the International Spy Museum

Meet at the Spy Museum Store to be introduced to an F-4 pilot. Mark A. Hewitt has always had a fascination with spyplanes and the intelligence community's development and use of aircraft. He flew F-4s in the Marine Corps and served as Director of Maintenance with the Border Patrol and the Air Force, as was an Associate Professor for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

Book Description: When a stolen CIA file is released to the public, America learns that their President is not the man he claims to be. Three years after being chased from office, the former president discovers the identity of the man who released his secret file. The ex-President begins to exact revenge while plotting his return to power. A fatwa makes CIA pilot Duncan Hunter the most wanted man in America. Then an airliner disappears over the Pacific Ocean. The new President gives the CIA two time-sensitive missions: find and eliminate his traitorous predecessor, and stop a self-radicalized computer scientist before another airliner goes missing. Duncan Hunter is in the race of his life to stop a jumbo jet from crashing. The CIA believes they have finally located the former president. All roads lead to Dubai where a showdown between good and evil begins on the top floor of the world's tallest building. Event is free. No registration required.

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.
