Late January 2003      Complete Iraq timeline

       British officials order translators and analysts working at the British Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) to cooperate with a US surveillance operation (see January 31, 2003), which is targeting diplomats from the “swing nations” on the Security Council—Chile, Bulgaria, Cameroon, Angola, Guinea and Pakistan. China, too, is likely a target of the mission. The espionage operation is “designed to help smooth the way for a second UN resolution authorizing war in Iraq.” [The Observer, 2/8/04 Sources: Unnamed sources close to the intelligence services] The surveillance campaign is likely known to the director-general of GCHQ, David Pepper, and Jack Straw, the Foreign Secretary, “who has overall responsibility for GCHQ.” [The Observer, 2/8/04] The operation reportedly causes “significant disquiet in the intelligence community on both sides of the Atlantic.” [The Observer, 2/8/04]
