February 24, 2002      Events Leading to Iraq Invasion

       Four-Star Marine General Carlton W. Fulford Jr., deputy commander of the US European Command, arrives in Niger on a scheduled refueling stop. At the request of US Ambassador to Niger Barbro Owens-Kirkpatrick, Fulford joins the ambassador at a meeting with Niger's President Mamadou Tandja and Foreign Minister Aichatou Mindaoudou. He explains the importance of keeping Niger's ore deposits secure. At the meeting, President Tandja assures the ambassador and General Fulford that Niger is determined to keep its uranium “in safe hands.” [Voce of America, 7/15/03; Vanity Fair, 5/2004, pg 282; The Washington Post, 7/15/03 Sources: Report On The US Intelligence Community's Prewar Intelligence Assessments On Iraq] After the meeting, Fulford is of the opinion that Niger's uranium is safely in the hands of a French consortium and that there is little risk that the material will end up in the wrong hands. These findings are passed on to General Joseph Ralston who provides them to General Richard B. Myers, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. [Vanity Fair, 5/2004, pg 282; Voce of America, 7/15/03; The Washington Post, 7/15/03 Sources: Carlton W. Fulford] The Pentagon will later say that Donald Rumsfeld was not informed about the trip or its conclusions. [Voice of America, 7/15/03]
