Agency PageSecrecy and Intelligence in a Free Society
Secrecy and Intelligence in a Free Society, James E. Knott. In discussing what I believe to be the major areas of concern that our free society has evinced regarding secrecy and intelligence, I hope to make it clear that I feel there are no final answers. They are not problems that can be solved; they are focal points that will demand continuing attention in pursuit of a balance which must be worked out between the opposing factors...
Agency PageThe Case for a Holistic Intelligence
The Case for a Holistic Intelligence, Lloyd F. Jordan. The central thesis of this paper is that the increasing complexity of national security problems requires that the Central Intelligence Agency adopt a new approach to intelligence analysis. This approach requires that intelligence problems which have important political, economic, scientific, military, and other salient dimensions be treated in a manner that will assure from the outset that the interplay of these various factors is taken fully into account. Since this thesis is based upon a belief that the separate treatment of each of these factors is inadequate because the problem as a whole is more than just the sum of its parts, it can be referred to as a holistic approach. The finished intelligence product of such an approach would be qualitatively more than the mere sum of its parts by virtue of an extra dimension provided by their integration at every stage of research — from the development of the research design to the completion of the analysis...

Inside the Company: CIA Diary by Philip Agee. (Penguin Books, 1975.) Philip Agee's 600-page story of his career and views as a junior and middle-level case officer in Quito, Montevideo, and Mexico City will anger all those who have worked for the Central Intelligence Agency because he is its first real defector in the classic sense of the word. Though it is unlikely that he could be successfully prosecuted in a cold or at least cooling war, in a hotter context Agee would fall into the area which the Constitution, speaking of enemies in time of war, defines as "giving them aid and comfort." In any case Inside the Company: CIA Diary will certainly give aid and comfort to any one looking for concrete and heretofore classified information about some aspects of the Clandestine Service. Unlike previous information about CIA operations made available by Victor Marchetti and others who have claimed to have had the best interests of the country at heart, this book aims, Mr. Agee says, to get "useful information on the CIA to revolutionary organizations that could use it." ...
