Not A Reporter...
I was employed at CIA prior to that–for 27 years.
Started on January 14, 1979.
2002-2004, where were you working:
Starting in 2002 Iraq Mission Manager.
A new position created by Tenet, I was asked to be point person on Iraq. I was asked to coordinate what CIA was doing.
Did this include attending Deputies Committee Meetings.
Don't want to go into a long discussion of policy making process. Deputies Committee primary part of policy-making. Key security agencies are included. I would typically go as the "plus one." Where were these Deputy Committee meetings held–in the Situation Room.
Do you know Scooter Libby?
Yes. The very first time I saw him was at a Deputies Committee meeting in July 2001. Started seeing him on regular basis in 2002.
Those meetings were held quite frequently. The number of meetings over a given week evolved, at least two or three times a week. He was in meetings on Iraq, those meetings were held 2-3 times a week.
Their relationship was that of business acquaintance.
When he came out to the CIA when he came out with VP for "briefings."
June 11 phone message that Scooter Libby called.
I wouldn't have recalled the message. But I recall I got a message at my office.
1-900-456-9000 was Libby's number.
The message is up, he identifies the writing of his secretary.
That was the first time this had ever happened that he got a call from Libby. <more>
