Abstract:

In the first two articles of this edition of Studies in Intelligence, we present American and SovietRussian perspectives on the U-2 program from two participants in the symposium. The first article consists of introductory remarks made by the Director of Central Intelligence, George J. Tenet, at the gathering. The second article discusses the U-2 as seen through the eyes ofthe sole Russian panelist, retired Colonel Alexander Orlov, who was a senior participant in the former USSRs efforts to counter this formidable intelligence collection program.
