Game analysts By the time the CIA has received an enormous amount of information coming from multiple sources, and analytical reports regularly betrayed the Soviet Union. However, these reports were not always objective. In part this was due to the lack of reliable and high-quality information, from which, with all the abundance of data, intelligence still continued to suffer. But no less cause bias became various domestic political considerations. Sometimes calculations CIA were tailored to the requirements of the present situation is so clumsy that it gave anecdotal reports of Langley. For example, when in 1975 it was necessary to push through Congress a record bloated Pentagon budget to lawmakers was CIA Director Colby, together with the director of DIA Graham and told that the Soviet Union is, defense spending by as much as 50% more than America and continues to increase these costs - while the United States is made in this area are reduced. Soon, the CIA was the new "scary" report, which "New York Times" in early 1976, wrote: "The Central Intelligence Agency concludes that it is underestimated, probably more than 50% share of Soviet economic resources on defense . In the past, the CIA is commonly believed that the Soviet Union allocates 6-8% of its total gross domestic product on defense ... While the CIA still busy revising this estimate, officials involved in the investigation, saying the CIA now come to the conclusion that the 10- 15% of the Soviet gross national product is spent on  defense. " In the same year, analysts Langley told the Minister of Defense, the military expenditures of the USSR is constantly growing at 5% a year and reached $ 200 billion. (To appreciate the scale of the figures, for example, that in 1975 the official national income of the Soviet Union amounted to 362 billion rubles.) Of course, and this time did not hesitate to come "leakage" of information, the sensational data hit the press, immediately stood up, despite on the individual voices of skeptics, the cry of the "Soviet threat".
