Yes, I am aware of Hoover's assessment. But in the end, Golitsyn's predictions proved correct, whereas the defectors Hoover's relied on proved to be phony.

So some argue. I would argue differently. In any case, part of my point is that because of this type of issue, it's unadvisable to rely too heavily on defectors' claims. I prefer to start with data that can be established independently of what defectors allege. The whole subject you're broaching can be studied productively independently of the Golitsyn controversy.
