Iraq Survey Group Final Report


Regime Finance and Procurement
Annex K


Suspected Intermediary and Front Companies Associated With Iraq

The companies listed in this annex have been reported in the Intelligence Community as front companies involved with the former Iraqi Regime. Because there are different interpretations as to what makes a company a front as opposed to a trade intermediary or manufacturer, this list can be seen as an example of companies that were involved in supplying the Iraqi government with prohibited conventional weapons and dual-use materials. At least two of the MIC domestic manufacturing companies, Al-Nida and Al-Rashid, have been mistaken for front companies in prior reporting. However, these companies still used known front companies such as the MIC’s Al-Basha’ir and Syria’s SES as middlemen when procuring materials for production. Other companies that were manufacturers or trading companies may also have been mistaken as front companies.
