Abstract : This part of the project called for interviewing present or former US government officials associated with weapons system development and deployment and experts in this area to determine their views about the costs and values of strategic weapons systems. This task, a modification of the agency's original terms of reference, was undertaken because a number of specific issues under study could not be adequately assessed without obtaining some original data. The only feasible way to partially fill this gap was to interview people similar to those whose publications were analyzed, asking the kinds of questions which we would have liked to ask of the writers, had they been present.
