See related UK Observer story, 8 February 2004:


And Observer initial revelation of the memo in March 2003:


[The Observer reports this is by Frank Koza, National Security Agency]


As you've likely heard by now, the Agency is mounting a surge particularly
directed at the UN Security Council (UNSC) members (minus US and GBR of
course) for insights as to how the membership is reacting to the on-going
debate RE Iraq, plans to vote on any related resolutions, what related
policies/negotiating positions they may be considering,
alliances/dependencies, etc - the whole gamut of information that could give
US policymakers an edge in obtaining results favorable to US goals or to
head off surprises. In RT, that means a QRC surge effort to revive/create
efforts against UNSC members Angola, Cameroon, Chile, Bulgaria, and Guinea
as well as extra focus on Pakistan UN matters.

We've also asked ALL RT topi's to emphasize and make sure they pay attention
to existing  non-UNSC member UN-related and domestic comms for anything
useful related to the UNSC deliberations/debates/votes. We have a lot of
special UN-related diplomatic coverage (various UN delegations) from
countries not sitting on the UNSC right now that could contribute related
perspectives/insights/whatever. We recognize that we can't afford to ignore
this possible source.

We'd appreciate your support in getting the word to your analysts who might
have similar more in-direct access to valuable information from accesses in
your product lines. I suspect that you'll be hearing more along these lines
in formal channels - especially as this effort will probably peak (at least
for this specific focus) in the middle of next week following the SecState's
presentation to the UNSC.

Thanks for your help.
