***A CIA psychiatrist discusses the mental makeup of defectors. He makes a number of interesting assertions, one of which is that “the percentage of [major] mental disorders … among defectors is less than one would expect to find in an ordinary population of the same size.” Stated simply, defectors are no crazier than the rest of us. The Agency’s psychiatrists were not able to establish a single profile that would describe all defectors, but “there are clusters of characteristics which fit most defectors.”
