Kessler, Ronald:  Moscow station : how the KGB penetrated the American Embassy
Book Number: 28498
New York Scribner 1989 8vo hardcover 305pp index, b/w illus. very good, spine slightly slantes / very good d/w. From Library Journal: This is all you wanted to know about the lurid Marine, spy, and sex scandal that has recently rocked the American embassy in Moscow. After the antics of the poor, young, single, not-too-bright, and not-well-trained Marines sent to guard the Embassy, the Marine motto of semper fidelis ("always faithful") just won't be the same. Critics have said that Kessler, author of Spy Versus Spy (LJ 9/1/88), theorizes beyond his evidence. But that is not the central point. The description of the laxity about security, the demoralizing conditions of the Marines and embassy staff, and the dimwitted Washington bureaucracies in charge of these things is the real story, and on hearing it one doesn't know whether to laugh at the Get Smart atmosphere or to cry. A neat if somewhat padded expose.

Smith, Grant F.:  Foreign Agents: The American Israel Public Affairs Committee from the 1963 Fulbright Hearings to the 2005 Espionage Scandal
Book Number: 50290
Institute for Research 2007 8vo softcover 198pp index, b/w illus. very good. FOREIGN AGENTS analyzes the history and activities of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC. FOREIGN AGENTS begins with testimony and subpoenaed documents from the 1963 Senate investigation into the activities of the agents of foreign principals. Senator J.W. Fulbright's discovery of "conduit" money-laundering operations in the US financed by Israeli principals touched off deep and important questions about US lobbying on behalf of the fledgling nation and the applicability of laws such as the Foreign Agents Registration Act and the Logan Act. The book then uncovers AIPAC election law skirmishes in the 1980s-1990s, analyzing the lobby's role in establishing and coordinating political action committees and AIPAC's role in alleged election law violations.

Carle, Glenn:  The Interrogator. A CIA Agent's True Story
Book Number: 56106
Australia, Scribe Publications 2011 8vo softcover 321pp index. very good. This is the never-before-told first-hand story of the 'dark side' of the Bush Administration's Global War on Terror, and of one of the CIA's biggest failures - the kidnapping, rendition, and torture of the wrong man - as told by a man who conducted the interrogation. It is an indictment of the CIA's enhanced interrogation from the inside, from a very senior operative. It is also the story of a patriot, Glenn Carle, and his struggle to do the right thing. And, of course, to some of his ex-colleagues, he is a traitor for revealing the truth. The book is Carle's affirmation that only the truth can lead us from the dark. He had years of training and experience leading up to his encounter with the captive who the CIA believed might hold the key to finding bin Laden. This was his apotheosis as a career spook in the Directorate of Operations, yet Carle immediately struggled to reconcile his orders to make his captive talk with the oath he had sworn to uphold the letter and the spirit of the law. Furthermore, as the interrogation began and he built rapport with his subject, another problem started to gnaw at him. This man wasn't who he was alleged to be; he was low level at best. But while Carle's scepticism grew, his superiors continued to insist that they had the right man. The suspect was moved to one of the CIA's most notorious black sites, and subjected to 'enhanced interrogation techniques'. Initially enthusiastic about his role at the CIA, Carle eventually began to question the policies of the war on terror because of his involvement in this interrogation. Throughout the operation he had to grapple with the most difficult question a patriot can face: what do you do when your government tells you to do something that is morally abhorrent? Carle's journey often reads like an international thriller, but it is a true tale of international intrigue, deceit, and betrayal. It is also an extraordinary and intimate portrait of the war on terror.Reviewsnn'Glenn Carle's book The Interrogator is a disturbing tale of the extremes to which the Bush administration was prepared to go in its Global War on Terror. Faceless bureaucrats sacrificed the core values that made the United States a great country, while ignoring the counsel of experts on the ground. This is a damning story and a nation of laws would demand an investigation into whether crimes were committed. We fear that we are no longer that nation.' - Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame Wilson
