INTRODUCTION

See for example, Truman Smith, Berlin Alert: The Memoirs and Reports of Truman Smith (Stanford: Hoover Institution Press, 1984); and Ivan D. Yeaton, Memoirs of Ivan D. Yeaton, USA, 1919-1953 (Stanford: Hoover Institution Press, 1976).

Bruce W. Bidwell, History of the Military Intelligence Division, Department of the Army General Staff: 1775-1941 (Frederick, MD: University Publications of America, 1986), 388.
3.
Peter H. Smith, Talons of the Eagle: The Dynamics of U. S. Latin American Relations (New York: Oxford University Press, 1996), 117.
4.
Scholars have been preoccupied with the role of the Latin American military since the 1960s. The treatment of this exceedingly complex issue is voluminous. See for instance the bibliographic essay in Linda A. Rodríguez’s, Rank and Privilege: The Military and Society in Latin America (Wilmington, DE: SR Books, 1994).

Ibid., x.
6.
There have been few, if any, works on attaches during the Cold War. There has been scholarly interest as demonstrated by the twenty or so monographs, dissertations, and articles published on attaches in the pre-World War II period. The problem of declassifying documents on U. S. intelligence activities in the Cold War era has been well documented elsewhere. See for example, George Herring, “My Years at the CIA, ” Speech to the American Historical Association, January 1997; and Anna K. Nelson, “History with Holes: The CIA Reveals Its Past, ” Diplomatic History 5 (Summer 1998): 503-508; See also Wilbur Edel, “Diplomatic History—State Department Style, ” Political Science Quarterly 106 (Winter, 1991-Winter 1992), 695-712.
7.
The lack of finding aids is due to personnel shortages at the National Archives.
8.
See for example: Scott D. Breckinridge, The CIA and the U. S. Intelligence System (Boulder: Westview Press, 1986); Lyman B. Kirkpatrick, The U. S. Intelligence Community: Foreign Policy and Domestic Activities (New York: Hill and Wang, 1973); Patrick J. McGarvey, CIA: The Myth and the Madness (Baltimore: Penguin Books, 1973); Victor Marchetti and John D. Marks, The CIA and the Cult of Intelligence (New York: Laurel, 1983); John Prados, President’s Secret Wars: CIA and Pentagon Covert Operations from World War II Through Iranscam (New York: Quill/William Morrow, 1988).
