I spend a lot of time doing research, both combing through books, old newspapers, and internet articles as well as interviewing primary sources. Some of this information finds its way into my fictional work, some of it ends up on SOFREP, and some just gets set aside for the time being. I’ll try to do a better job about sharing some of this information with our readers.
Today I want to draw your attention to a white paper titled Truth Conquers All Chains: The U.S. Army Intelligence Support Activity, 1981-1989 by Jeffrey T. Richelson. This unit is so secretive that I don’t comment on it regarding my personal experiences, but I will point you guys towards some open source information. In addition to this paper, which first appeared in the International Journal of Intelligence and Counter Intelligence, you should also take a look at the books Killing Pablo and Killer Elite, the former being one giant OPSEC violation, but damn…it’s amazing what the author turned up via the Freedom of Information Act.
