The Last—And Only—Foreign Scientist in the Wuhan Lab Speaks Out.
Virologist Danielle Anderson paints a very different picture of the Wuhan Institute.
By Michelle Fay Cortez, 27 June 2021, Bloomberg News

Danielle Anderson was working in what has become the world's most notorious laboratory just weeks before the first known cases of Covid-19 emerged in central China. Yet, the Australian virologist still wonders what she missed. An expert in bat-borne viruses, Anderson is the only foreign scientist to have undertaken research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology's BSL-4 lab, the first in mainland China equipped to handle the planet's deadliest pathogens. Her most recent stint ended in November 2019, giving Anderson an insider's perspective on a place that's become a flashpoint in the search for what caused the worst pandemic in a century. Her experience and findings contradict all the claims the lab was the source of the Covid-19 pandemic. Article continues here.

Newly Released, Overlooked, or Forthcoming Books

Sleeper Agent: The Atomic Spy in America Who Got Away
by Ann Hagedorn
(Simon & Schuster, July 2021)

The biography of a Soviet spy whose story may be new even to history buffs. George Koval was an American-born Soviet spy in the atom bomb project in WWII.

He was born in 1913 in Iowa. In 1932, his Russian parents decided to return to Russia to live out their socialist ideals. George, who was as committed to socialism, went with them. It was there that he was recruited by the Soviet Army as a spy and returned to the US in 1940. A gifted science student, he enrolled at Columbia University, where he knew scientists heading to work on the Manhattan Project. After being drafted into the US Army, George used his scientific background and connections to secure an assignment at a site where plutonium and uranium were produced to fuel the atom bomb. There, and later in a second top-secret location, he had full access to all facilities and passed highly sensitive info to Moscow.

There were hundreds of spies in the US during WWII, but Koval was the only Soviet military spy with security clearances in the atomic-bomb project. The ultimate sleeper agent, he was an all-American boy who had played baseball, loved Walt Whitman's poetry, and mingled freely with fellow Americans. After the war he slipped away into the vapors of history. In 1949 Soviet scientists produced a bomb identical to America's years earlier than US experts expected.

Posthumously awarded Russia's highest civilian honor, Koval flew so far under the radar that Putin hadn't heard of him before attending a 2006 Moscow exhibition on Cold War-era spies.

Spycraft Revolution: Espionage and Secret Services in the Third Millennium [SPIONAGGIO E SERVIZI SEGRETI NEL TERZO MILLENNIO] - In Italian
by Antonio Teti
(Rubbettino, June 2021)

Over the past two decades the world of espionage has faced huge organizational changes imposed by development of digital technologies, from the continuous mutations of politics and of trade and the evolution of a new and more conscious respect of privacy and the metamorphosis of multiform societies, more and more influenced by the pervasiveness of the virtual world. The winners of the challenge of the "intelligence of the future" will be those who will break the old rules of the espionage and counterintelligence game, developing new ones that will use conceived tools and techniques for Cyberspace. In this new digital ecosystem, services secrets must be more agile and collaborative and, paradoxically, they will have to assume an apparent connotation of "Minor secrecy" to get rid of that cloak of secrecy that often has produced surreal judgments and unfounded accusations about their real work.

ANTONIO TETI is responsible for the Information Systems and Innovation Sector Technology of the University of Chieti-Pescara, where he is a professor of IT Governance, Big Data, Data Science and Technology Intelligence. He is a professor of Cyber ​​Intelligence at LUISS, at the University of Calabria, at the University of Udine and at the Postgraduate School of the Police Forces of Rome.

COMING IN MARCH 2022 - but can be preordered now

Black Ops: The Life of a CIA Shadow Warrior
by Ric Prado
(St. Martin's Press, March 2022)

A memoir by the highest-ranking covert warrior to lift the veil of secrecy and offer a glimpse into the shadow wars that America has fought since the Vietnam Era.

Enrique Prado was the son of a middle-class Cuban family caught in the Castro Revolution. His family fled to America. Fifty years later, the Cuban refugee retired from the CIA after two decades operating in the shadows. Ric and his fellow CIA officers fought a little-seen and virtually unknown war to keep USA safe from those who would do it harm.

After duty stations in Central, South America, and the Philippines, Ric became Deputy Chief of Station and co-founding member of the Bin Laden Task Force in 1995. Three years later, after serving as head of Korean Operations, he took on the mission to re-establish a once-abandoned CIA station inside a hostile nation long since considered a front line of the fight against Islamic terrorism. He and his team carried out covert operations and developed assets that proved pivotal in the coming War on Terror.

This is his memoir of a life in the world of assassins, terrorists, spies, and revolutionaries. He also provides an appreciation for the courage, creativity, and dedication of the Agency's Special Activities Group and its elite shadow warriors.

Book may be ordered here.

Section I - INTELLIGENCE HIGHLIGHTS

Intelligence Community Named a 'Best Pace to Work’ for 12th Consecutive Year. For the 12th consecutive year, the Intelligence Community (IC) has been named as one of the "Best Places to Work in the Federal Government." The IC ranked second overall among large federal agencies with more than 15,000 full-time permanent employees. This overall ranking is up from third since 2019 and is the IC’s highest ranking ever.

The Partnership for Public Service (PPS) compiled the 2020 rankings and presented the awards to agency leaders during a virtual conference today. Lora Shiao, Chief Operating Officer for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), accepted the award on behalf of the IC.

"The Intelligence Community has the most extraordinary workforce - talented, compassionate, and dedicated," said DNI Avril Haines. "This award is a testament to their resilience during an especially difficult year confronted by the COVID-19 pandemic. I am honored to work alongside such exceptional professionals and congratulate the entire IC on this well-deserved recognition." [Read more: ODNI/29June2021]

German Who Ran Think Tank Arrested for Spying for China. A German man who ran a think tank has been arrested on suspicion of being an informant for Chinese intelligence for years, German prosecutors said Tuesday.

Federal prosecutors said the suspect, identified only as Dr. Klaus L. in line with German privacy rules, was arrested on suspicion of espionage Monday following an indictment that they filed at a Munich court in May.

They said he is a political scientist and had run a think tank, which they didn't identify, since 2001. According to prosecutors, employees of a Chinese intelligence service contacted him when he went on a lecture trip to Shanghai in June 2010. [Read more: AP/6July2021]

Iranian Disinformation Effort Went Small to Stay Under Big Tech's Radar. On June 13, as Benjamin Netanyahu ended his decade-long run as Israel's prime minister, a Telegram channel dedicated to protesting him hummed with celebration.

"And now prison, go to prison," read a short message below a photoshopped image of Mr. Netanyahu behind bars. The 7,000 followers of the Telegram channel quickly spread the message to other groups and social media apps.

The channel and the message were secretly part of an Iranian disinformation campaign, according to Israeli disinformation researchers. Over several months, Iranian agents had infiltrated small WhatsApp groups, Telegram channels and messaging apps that Israeli activists used for intimate discussions among dozens to thousands of people.

Once there, the agents shared polarizing images and text, and began to send direct messages to people within the groups. [Read more: Frenkel/NYTimes/30June2021]

Russia Detains Estonian Consul Over Allegations of Espionage. Russian security forces have said they had detained Estonia's consul to Saint Petersburg for allegedly receiving classified documents, the latest in a series of espionage cases between Moscow and the West.

The FSB security service said consul Mart Latte was "caught red-handed while receiving classified documents from a Russian national" and detained for activities "incompatible with the status of a diplomatic worker" and "openly hostile" to Russia.

"Measures will be taken against the foreign diplomat in accordance with the rules of international law," said the statement. [Read more:TRTWorld/6July2021]

Albania Investigates 7 Russians, Czechs for Military Espionage. The Prosecutor General of Tirana is investigating two Russian and five Czech citizens on suspicions of military espionage carried out during the Defender-Europe 21 military exercises.

According to Euronews sources, the Russians are being investigated for obtaining confidential information about the operations of a foreign government. Whereas, the Czech citizens are suspected of photographing NATO headquarters in Kuçovë and the military exercises of US troops in Durrës.

All suspects have since left Albania. [Read more: ExitNews/1July2021]


Section II - CONTEXT & PRECEDENCE

Should Israel Have Seized Iran's Nuclear Archive? - Ex-Mossad Official. There is still an ongoing debate over whether it was wise to publicly reveal to the world the Mossad's seizing of Iran's secret nuclear archive or whether the disclosures should have been limited to allied intelligence services, former Mossad official Sima Shine said on Tuesday.

Speaking as part of an INSS conference honoring the memory of deceased former senior IDF intelligence official Shmuel Even, Shine, who now leads research on Iran at INSS, seemed to hint that she was against the 2018 public reveal by then prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

"Was there a need to publicize it? Maybe we could have held onto the information and revealed it a little bit at a time, drawn out over several years," she said.

If the Mossad had only quietly shared the intelligence with counterparts like the CIA, MI6 and the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) international inspectors, "the Iranians would not have known how much we took from them." [Read more: Bob/JerusalemPost/6July2021]

Biden Administration Still Weighing CIA Drone Strike Policy Amid Afghanistan Withdrawal. As President Joe Biden's withdrawal from Afghanistan nears completion, his administration still hasn't finalized its policy for pursuing terrorists in the country once US troops have departed.

While the US military will retain authority to carry out strikes against the Taliban in support of Afghan forces, as CNN reported on Friday, that authority does not necessarily extend to counter-terrorism operations in the country against those suspected of planning attacks against the US homeland or allies.

For years, the CIA and US military have had broad authority to kill suspected terrorists in Afghanistan, targeting decisions that could be made by senior military and intelligence officials and did not always need final sign off by the White House.

But as Biden prepares to end the war, his National Security Council is studying whether to raise the bar for the CIA and the Pentagon to carry out deadly drone strikes and commando raids once US troops are gone, according to people familiar with the matter. [Read more: CNN/5July2021]

China Expert John Culver on Beijing's Military Prowess - "Intelligence Matters".

Culver offers insights into Xi Jinping's rise to and continued hold on power and describes the many challenges of engaging Beijing in a multi-polar, interconnected global system.

'May the Party Continue': La Jolla Centenarian and World Traveler Max Gurney is Celebrated by Local Rotarians. Whether it's his because of service with the military or the Rotary Club, advice for international travel or sharing a good glass of Burgundy wine, La Jollan Max Gurney is a good man to know.

Though the centenarian celebrated his actual 100th birthday overseas, a lunch was held in La Jolla in his honor June 30, at which loved ones shared stories of the many facets of his life.

Gurney was born in Frankfurt, Germany, on June 10, 1921, but moved to Manhattan as a child. Already a multilinguist at age 20, he joined the Army and was trained in cryptographic and intelligence operations and the Signal Intelligence Service and was stationed in North Africa.

During his years in the military, Gurney traveled to Tunisia, Italy and more. He received his honorable discharge from the Army in November 1945. [Read more: Mackin-Solomon/LaJollaLight/6July2021]

An American Lawyer Went on a Lunch Date in Moscow. Now He's Languishing in a Jail Cell in Belarus. When Youras Ziankovich, a lawyer with American citizenship, returned to his Moscow hotel after a lunch date with a friend in April, he found four men waiting for him in the street.

Ziankovich's wife, Alena Dzenisavets, says that according to the manager of the Nordic Rooms hotel, the men - all in plain clothes - put a hood over his head and bundled him into a car outside the hotel in the Moscow suburb of Ostankino.

She told CNN that Youras was then spirited across the Russian border in a three-vehicle convoy and driven more than 700 kilometers (435 miles) to the Belarusian capital, Minsk.

Dzenisavets says she pieced together what happened to her husband through his court-appointed lawyer in Belarus. She has not had any direct contact with Youras for nearly three months. [Read more: Lister/CNN/5July2021]

Podcast: Cofer Black on Leadership Lessons Learned and Speaking Truth to Power. In this OODAcast, we talk with renowned counter-terrorism expert and career clandestine services professional Cofer Black. Cofer is best known for having been the Director of the CIA's Counterterrorism Center on 9/11 and having been part of the intelligence community warning about the near-term threat of terrorism in the United States prior to the attacks. However, his pedigree in counterterrorism issues was well established with a distinguished career in the field in high-risk areas and operations.

During our discussion Cofer provides insight on a variety of issues including: [Listen here: OODALoop/2July2021]


Section III - COMMENTARY

Understanding Russia's Cyber Strategy. The Russian Federation’s willingness to engage in offensive cyber operations has caused enormous harm, including massive financial losses, interruptions to the operation of critical infrastructure, and disruptions of crucial software supply chains. The variety and frequency of these operations, as well as the resulting attribution efforts, have offered an unusually vivid picture of Russia’s cyber capabilities and tactics. While many other countries have relied heavily on vague strategies and threats to signal their emerging cyber powers, Russia has exercised its technical capabilities with relative impunity for more than a decade. This makes it possible to chart Moscow’s increasingly bold forays into the cyber domain alongside the increasingly technically sophisticated specific vulnerabilities, techniques, and tactics that Russia has leveraged. This timeline reveals a shift towards more covert, targeted cyber capabilities in recent years, as well as an evolution away from phishing-based compromises to supply chain and service provider intrusions, in conjunction with a continued reliance on and reuse of the same infrastructure and malware across multiple operations.

Reforming the FISA Process: Tweak or Overhaul?  Earlier this month, Adam Klein, the outgoing chair of the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, took the unusual step of issuing a unilateral "Chairman's White Paper" on oversight of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, based on PCLOB's review of 19 FISA applications for electronic surveillance of U.S. persons in counterterrorism investigations. This is in itself notable, given how tightly restricted access to the applications underlying FISA surveillance has historically been. Until 2018, when a redacted version of the applications to monitor former Trump advisor Carter Page was declassified, the general public had never seen one. When an unprecedented deep-dive review of the Page applications by the Justice Department's Inspector General uncovered serious deficiencies in that process, this fact took on sudden salience: Nobody could be certain whether the problems were sui generis of a larger pattern of errors and omissions. Predictably, alas, Klein's discussion of the substantive contents of the applications PCLOB reviewed is largely redacted, but the report does offer some helpful procedural analysis and some welcome, but ultimately rather conservative, proposals for reform.

Health Intelligence: Missing Dimension in the Security of Pakistan. It is a weary but the factual point that the post-Cold War world is a composite place. Cold War has been supplanted by something that is not war but certainly is not peace. In this scenario the policymaking and intelligence challenges are far more complicated. Of all the intelligence challenges in the post-Cold War world, health issues are evolving as among the utmost importance. Policymakers are acknowledging that infectious diseases, climate change, pollution, health systems' collapse, and misuse of science and technology all signify instability and fascinating epochs. Correspondingly, we never thought about the connection between health and national security but, the severity of the global CoVID-19 pandemic forced us to change our minds.

The new 21st century threats necessitate us to transition from building tanks, missiles and aircrafts to deploying soft-power approaches, developing cutting edge technology and cyber capabilities, together with robust and efficient laboratories. [Read more: Baig/ModernDiplomacy/6July2021]

Clearance Holders Need to Protect America by Studying Espionage. I enjoy the study of espionage. This is not some quirk of personality, but comes from a distinct reason. I've been influenced over the years by some of the world's most distinguished spy-catchers.

I recall one rainy German winter day during the Cold War. While sitting at the office, I asked my older colleague, "What kind of professional development do you do regularly?" He responded, "I read about cases." He gave me case histories and books I might study. I've followed his example from that day to this. To be sure, I started with the cases in our safe. I made myself acquainted with the events which our office had been involved with over the years. I came to know our area as best I could through these reports of investigations, or curious events 'of counterintelligence interest.' These latter seemed to have no particular conclusion. They were reported 'higher' of course, and kept on file in case some later development might shed some further light.

'Later' is a significant part of espionage investigations. Events from 30, even 80 years ago come to light through memoirs, investigative journalist reporting, or government releases of information. These events often cause further current investigations to develop, or previous research to be illuminated. But these developments are not always as you'd expect.

Research Requests

ISO former CIA officers w/ Czech experience

I'm the daughter of Dagmar Stapleton who worked on the Czech desk from around '74 to '94. Am hoping to talk with former Prague case officers, station chiefs, deputy station chiefs from that time period for a research project.
Please contact me at viveca.novak@gmail.com. [Viveca Novak is an American journalist who has worked as the editorial and communications director at the Center for Responsive Politics since 2011. She was previously a Washington correspondent for Time and The Wall Street Journal. She is a frequent guest on CNN, NBC, PBS, and Fox.]

Researcher Seeking Your Experiences Working in Western North Carolina on DoD/NSA Rosman Research Station in 1980s.
I'm Craig Gralley, a 34-year veteran of CIA and currently a freelance writer in the Brevard, NC area. I'm also a volunteer at PARI - the Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute in nearby Rosman. PARI is now dedicated to STEM education and research, but has had a storied history that is largely unknown to the people of this mostly underserved area of rural North Carolina. I have volunteered to write PARI's history. NASA first constructed the site in 1962 as a ground station for a variety of unmanned scientific satellites. AFIO members might remember when DoD/NSA took over the site in 1981 and called it the Rosman Research Station (NSA's participation at the site was declassified nearly a decade ago). NSA gave up the site in 1995.

I am receiving NSA's support through a FOIA request to declassify more information about the facility. My goal is to make this history less about satellites and their capabilities and more about what it was like working in a remote location in western North Carolina. Personal stories, things that could have gone wrong but didn't (or did), success stories—humorous/serious anecdotes—all of it is welcome. My goal is to take the edge off of a dry history and give the Rosman ground station a human face.
I'd be glad to attribute anything that comes to me in the way desired by the contributor.
Thanks for your help.

Request for Assistance Researching Clandestine Maritime Operation in Da Nang 1950s-1970s

"My old Master Chief, James "Jim" Gray and I wrote the first history of Naval Special Warfare Combatant Craft (WARBOATS, 55 Years of Naval Special Warfare Combatant Craft History) for our veterans organization the Combatant Craft Crewman Association (CCCA), now in its second printing. One of the areas that we wanted to explore in greater depth were the clandestine maritime operations based in Da Nang from the South Vietnamese and CIA period through Switchback and Military Assistance Command Vietnam-Studies and Observation Group (MACV-SOG) control and the final the American withdrawal.
We are looking for assistance with this research in particular on the CIA side, as much of the MACV-SOG documentation has been declassified and we have spoken with the SEALs and Boat Support Unit One men of Mobile Support Team 1 and the Mobile Repair Team. Our Norwegian colleague, Jan Tore Nilsen is a Senior Reserve Commander in the Norwegian Navy is researching Norwegian involvement in Vietnam and has interviewed the surviving Norwegian contractors and obtained documents and photos from them as well as obtained documents regarding acquisition and construction of the Norwegian PTF (Patrol Torpedo Fast) boats for operations in Vietnam. An old friend of mine who was an historian for the CIA suggested we contact AFIO and ask for assistance. We would greatly appreciate any assistance from AFIO members."

Obituaries

Jack Downing, DDO, COS, CIA Trailblazer - additional obituary info

AFIO announced Jack Downing's death last week in WIN #23-21 on 29 June 2021. Two subsequent extended obituaries appeared and are worth bringing to your attention. See the Washington Post obituary, "Jack Downing, Cold War spy who came out of retirement to help CIA, dies at 80" Jack Downing, a renowned spymaster who became the only CIA officer to run and recruit agents in both Beijing and Moscow during the Cold War, then came out of retirement in 1997 to reinvigorate the agency's demoralized clandestine branch, died June 27 at his home in Portland, Ore. He was 80. Mr. Downing was the consummate field agent, colleagues said, a Harvard graduate and Marine Corps veteran who served two tours in Vietnam, spoke fluent Chinese and Russian, and delighted in reciting Chinese poetry as well as developing new ways to evade the KGB. "He was everybody's idealized version of what a spy would be like," said Jonna Mendez, a former chief of disguise at the CIA. Obituary by Harrison Smith, 3 July 2021.
Also see the New York Times obituary, "Jack Downing, C.I.A. Chief in Cold War Capitals, Dies at 80." He was the agency's only official to have served as station head in both Moscow and Beijing. Then he was drawn out of retirement in 1997 to save its espionage operations. Obituary by Sam Roberts, 30 June 2021.

29 July 2021, 6 pm - Virtual - OSS Society hosts Gen. David Petraeus USA (Ret) and Gus Biggio on "The War in Afghanistan"

The OSS Society hosts the fifth installment in its 2021 "Oh So Social" Conversation Series on July 29. General David Petraeus, who commanded U.S. military forces in Afghanistan, will speak with Gus Biggio about his Afghan war memoir, The Wolves of Helmand:
"At turns poignant, funny, philosophical, and raw—but always real—The Wolves of Helmand is both a heartfelt homage to the Marine brotherhood with whom Biggio served and an expression of respect and love for the people of Afghanistan who ultimately trusted, shared, and appreciated their purpose. Ten years after serving his country as a U.S. Marine, Captain Frank "Gus" Biggio signed up once again because he missed the brotherhood of the military. Leaving behind his budding law career, his young wife, and newborn son, he was deployed to Helmand Province—the most violent region in war-torn Afghanistan—for reasons few would likely understand before reading this book."
Do not miss this important conversation as America's military forces prepare to leave Afghanistan later this year.
