The INTELLIGENCE Files:
Today's Secrets, Tomorrow's Scandals
by Olivier Schmidt
"If one hopes to make sense of events in the murky world of intelligence and
international security, one has to consult multiple sources originating from
diverse perspectives. Intelligence helps make that task easier. It probes
where others fail to look and offers interpretations that challenge the

This collection of the decade's "best-of" from the online journal,
Intelligence, offers a shocking glimpse into the frequently illicit and
routinely immoral undertakings of states, whose harm to individuals, groups
and countries is seldom recognized or understood by the public at large.
Fifteen thoroughly researched and documented chapters probe the clandestine

to knowledgeable followers of current affairs.
Careful surveillance and analysis of open source information (media, books,
technical literature, patents) by the French Association for the Right to
Information (ADI) and its Franco-American editor, Olivier Schmidt, permit
the non-specialist to read about and understand these secrets and the
scandals they cause when exposed to light at last.
Regarded as the bible for conspiracy theorists the world over, Intelligence
is avidly read in intelligence agencies because it is so rich in insider
information. [Over 50 intelligence agencies worldwide are on its subscriber
