Intelligence, Secrecy & Power, N. 638, 12 May 2014

WORLD MEDIA – FROM 26 APRIL 2014 TO 9 MAY 2014 REPORTS & SYNTHESIS

This issue of “Intelligence, Secrecy & Power” (ISP), number 638, covers from 26
April 2014 to 9 May 2014 and includes 22 pages of data in 244 entries or 12,279
words, and 21* noteworthy entries marked *. This ISP format provides information
by topic and then by chronological listing of the media reports. In this issue,
as with the preceding ones, Israel/Palestine, but not Syria, appears as a
separate topic, independent of the general Middle East topic which now includes
Syria, Iraq and Egypt, as distinct from certain past issues, and as such these
different topics are not strictly comparable with the preceding issues of ISP
