William R. Harris
In the period from 1976 to 1980, Harris developed an argument that the Soviet Union was orchestrating a disinformation campaign to understate the accuracy of its missiles. According to Harris, this involved manipulating telemetry data targeted by US technical collection and alleged double agents such as Fedora.
In January 1985, Harris wrote a memo outlining his view of the ABM Treaty in response to Deputy Under-Secretary of Defense T.K. Jones, who was concerned that the treaty would constrain the development of the Strategic Defense Initiative.
