The Office of Iraq Analysis
The Office of Iraq Analysis (OIA) provides multidisciplinary intelligence analysis on Iraq to US policymakers. The US investment in Iraq and efforts to foster a united and democratic government there will continue to place OIA analysts front and center with history in the making:
- OIA analysts have covered a wide range of historical events including the captures of Saddam Husayn and many of his top officials, the rise of the Iraqi insurgency, the nation’s first post-Saddam elections, and Iraqi economic development.
- OIA’s diverse workforce includes analysts who participated in the Directorate of Intelligence’s undergraduate or graduate student fellowship programs. Many analysts have advanced degrees and fluency in Arabic.
