Very interesting thoughts on the implications of the Libyan operation and the question about how clandestine processing could've been managed. I'm wondering if the discussion on this thread might point towards some clues:

Evidence of Niger uranium trade 'years before war'

Piasa noted this in #11:

Another interesting tidbit is that the documents are alleged to have arrived in the hands of the Italian journalist in precisely the same month- October- that the US NIE was completed and released- and the same time as the UK media reports defector's claims that an Iraqi agent named Nadhim Jabouri had been sent to arrange for the acquisition of specialized aluminum tubes for its enrichment process from South Africa. The info comes from an INC source who, if I'm not mistaken, was apparently correct about Iraq's effort to obtain magnets from Germany.

My note: Also in October there were rumblings about a North Korean attempt to procure uranium from Congo.

I'm also wondering if Glencore might have played a role here:

Shady Iraq oil deals: The ANC connection

Majali was drawn into controversy in 2001 when a Swiss company, Glencor International, was ordered to pay the United Nations $3-million for violating sanctions on Iraq. Glencor's South African partner at the time was Montega Trading, headed by Majali.
