Stephen J. Hadley was US National Security Advisor. During George W. Bush's first term he served as Deputy National Security Advisor.[1]

War Profiteering

In an article on war profiteers, Global Research writes that "Perhaps the most notable example is that of [Raytheon director] Stephen Hadley... [who] wrote an editorial in The Washington Post with the headline, “To stop Iran, Obama must enforce red lines with Assad.” Nowhere in those appearances was it disclosed, according to the report, that Hadley is a director with Raytheon, a weapons manufacturer that produces the Tomahawk cruise missiles the US almost certainly would have used had it intervened in Syria. Hadley earns an annual salary of $128,5000 from Raytheon and owns 11,477 shares of Raytheon stock. His holdings were worth $891,189 as of August 23."[2]

Niger Uranium

Stephen Hadley, Condoleezza Rice’s right-hand man in the Bush administration’s National Security Council, served as the fall guy when allegations arose regarding the national security adviser’s mishandling of information about Iraq’s purported effort to buy uranium from Niger. According to the Washington Post, Hadley was told by CIA Director George Tenet that the Niger allegations, which were used by Bush in various speeches (including the January 2003 State of the Union Address) and served as a key pretext for invading Iraq, were probably bogus and should not be used by the president. Hadley, who claimed that Rice had been unaware of the controversy, told the newspaper, “I should have recalled ... that there was controversy associated with the uranium issue.”[3]

Later activities

In December 2015 Hadley was chairman of the Board of Directors of the spooky United States Institute of Peace‎ which has been consistent in its efforts to undercount the dead of the Iraq War.[4]
