If ever legends and stories of American technological genius were deserved and not yet realized, they would be about scientists and engineers, the wizards of CIA and American intelligence who pioneered reconnaissance aircraft like the U-2 and SR-71, photographic satellites from the KH-4 to KH-11, an amazing array of signals intelligence satellites ... people who worked brilliantly but anonymously to serve their country.  -- Robert Gates, November 19, 1999, at a conference on "U.S. Intelligence and the Cold War."
