“In March [2002], [CIA Director George] Tenet met secretly with two individuals who would be critical to covert action inside Iraq: Massoud Barzani and Jalal Talabani, the leaders of the two main Kurdish groups in northern Iraq. Tenet had one message for Barzani and Talabani: the United States was serious, the military and the CIA were coming.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
