Project Azorian: The CIA and the Raising of the K-129

As part of CNA's continuing efforts to stimulate and enhance knowledge and debate on important current naval issues, Norman Polmar will present key findings from his latest book (co-authored with Michael White) “Project Azorian: The CIA and the Raising of the K-129,” and lead a discussion on those findings, in the CNA boardroom on Monday, 6 December from 1000-1200. Project Azorian–often incorrectly identified as Project Jennifer by the press–was the 1974 CIA operation to salvage a sunken the Soviet ballistic missile submarine K-129 from the depths of the North Pacific Ocean. In this new book, Polmar and White argue that Azorian was the most ambitious ocean engineering endeavor attempted by man–comparable to the 1969 moon landing in its level of technological achievement. Norman Polmar–a close colleague of many of us–is an internationally known analyst, consultant, and award-winning author specializing in naval, aviation, and intelligence issues. If you and/or appropriate colleagues wish to participate, please let Loretta Ebner know, at ebnerl@cna.org or (703) 824-2759. Light refreshments will be served.
