    • Melvin Goodman (CIA senior analyst): I would argue that we probably exaggerate the significance of intelligence. Once policy makers decide on a course, I don't think correct intelligence or incorrect intelligence is going to bring any great changes in that course.

    • Colonel Mikhail Luibimov (KGB): I love espionage. Why? Because there is this smell of adventure, the smell of risk, the smell of uncertainty. Because when you go off to meet an agent, you never know whether you're going to be arrested. It adds color to life.
