MEMORANDUM TO: ADDO/SAD
FROM: Ryan Jackson, Chief Analyst (APLAA)
SUBJECT: OPERATION HOURGLASS/TARGET PROFILE
MAJOR GENERAL NIKITA DRAGOVICH
SUMMARY PROFILE: The specifics behind the roots of General Dragovich's hatred for the West are unknown, but as the extent of his plans have become evident, it is clear that this hatred borders on pathalogical.
Climbing through the ranks of the KGB, Dragovich ultimately became one of the most powerful men in the Soviet Union, with its entire military seemingly at his disposal. For such a high-ranking officer and influential member of the Communist Party, little is known of the general's background despite numerous attempts on the parts of Moscow-based Agency assets to acquire information on Dragovich's personal history. The inability to acquire intelligence on the man indicates a deliberate attempt at secrecy.

DOCUMENT 2 Edit
DATE: November 24, 1961
MEMORANDUM TO: Allen W. Dulles (DCI)
FROM: Ryan Jackson, (Chief Analyst, APLAA), in conjunction with OSA/DI
- I am forwarding for review recommendations based on the analysis of potential fallout to the failed Operation Zapata as it relates to the event near Novaya Zemlyn Island on 30 October 1961. The recommendation herein are supported by current HUMLIT of meetings between the current Soviet Premier and his immediate advisor.
- Following the events of 17-20 April 1961, Moscow-based HUMINT reports detail the reaction of senior Soviet leadership to the failed coup of the Castro regime in Cuba. Full report and interview transcripts can be found in TAB A, but the report can be summarized by the following quote attributed to Nikita Kruschev: "[LANCER]" is too young, intellectual, [sic] not prepared well for the decision making in crisis situations, too intelligent and too weak.
- Enclosed (TAB B) is a detailed analysis of the detonation of a 57Mt thermonuclear bomb ("Tsar Bomba") off the Coast of Novaya Zemlya Island in the Arctic Sea on 30 Oct 1961 at 11:32 local time. Early reports indicate that Soviet intentions consists of transferring this ability to rocket-based warheads (TAB C).
- Testing of liquid-based ICBMs at the Soviet Research Test Range No.5 (Baikonur) continues to outpace original estimates of Soviet capabilities. Preparations for U2 missions to provide improved data on the Baikonur Cosmodrome are already underway.
- It is the opinion of this analysis team that the Soviet Union will pursue an avenue of nuclear first-strike capabilities within the Republic of Cuba as a means of testing the resolve of U.S executive leadership. We recommend all means be explored to prevent this possibility up to and including the physical crippling of the Soviet ICBM research located at the Baikonur Cosmodrome.
