Case Study: US Arms Dealer KRG Access and Contract Development, 2014

In June of 2014 the US Arms Dealer contracted Bert to help them obtain a contract with the Kurdistan Regional Government in Iraq to provide Defensive Items.  One issue here were that nobody knew who within the Kurdistan Regional Government was able to make a purchase order and allocate funds for this order.  Another issue was that the Kurdistan Regional Government was not recognized as a Federal Government by the United States Department of State Office of the Director of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) and thus permission was not being given to American companies to sell weapons to the Kurdistan Regional Government without a letter of approval from the Federal Government of Iraq.  Bert flew to Erbil and used his former contracts from working directly with the KRG to set up a business license completion procedure and asked to be introduced directly to the President.  Within three days Bert had a meeting with the President’s son who was also the Director of Security and Intelligence.  Through the next 45 days Bert would negotiate with the President’s aids until a final contract was completed. After 53 days spent in Kurdistan the contract was completed along with End User Certificates.  The next step was to fly to DC and get permission from the US Government to sell weapons directly to Kurdistan.  Here is where the real issues took place.  The President of the United States did not want to circumvent the Iraqi Federal Government as it was viewed that this would show a lack of support for a unified government.  Bert was able to garner support from Senator McCain, Senator Menendez, Senator Burr, Senator Feinstein, Senator Kaine, Senator Warner, Senator Rubio, Representative Boehner, Representative Wolf, Representative Carry, Representative Baxter, Representative Graham, and Secretary Hagel to back this action.  The case is currently in front of the review board for final approval.
