July 2003: Second Chief of CIA Baghdad Station Appointed

The CIA appoints a new chief of its station in Baghdad, Iraq. (Risen 2006, pp. 141-142) According to Harper’s magazine journalist Ken Silverstein, the new chief’s name is Gerry Meyer (see May 18, 2006). He is apparently a highly regarded agency veteran. (Silverstein 5/18/2006) Meyer had previously served as a station chief in a neighboring country. (Miller and Drogin 2/20/2004) However, he will only last a few months in the job for reasons that are not entirely clear (see (Late December 2003)).
