Artifact Details

During the 2003 Iraq War, CIA needed to closely monitor intense political developments regarding Saddam Hussain’s regime.

Intelligence officers relied heavily on Thuraya phones to communicate on the ground during the launch of Operation IRAQI FREEDOM in 2003 after most other communication lines had been destroyed or interrupted during the US invasion.
