ABSTRACT
The article addresses the issue of whether Soviet compliance to the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT) can be verified by United States intelligence. According to the author, efforts by various groups to dispute the findings of U. S. intelligence that SALT is verifiable have been opposed both by the legislative system and the intelligence system. The author also discusses the reasons why he believes compliance verification using U. S. intelligence is not feasible.
