Brit Author Demands Notes on Iraqi Oil Policy

WASHINGTON (CN) - An Englishman writing a book on Iraqi oil policy says the U.S. Central Command blew off his requests for documents on U.S. Adm. William Fallon's meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki on June 10, 2007.

Greg Muttitt is working on a book to be called "Fuel on the Fire." He sought minutes, notes, the agenda "and other substantive supporting" documents used at the meeting. Fallon at the time was commander of the U.S. Central Command.

Muttitt sued Centcom and the Departments of Defense, State and Treasury in a federal FOIA complaint. He is represented by Kelly McClanahan of Arlington, Va.
