CIA And FBI Agent With Ties To Hezbollah Guilty Of Security Breach

A naturalized citizen of the US who had a security clearence and worked for the CIA and the FBI has pled guilty in a plea bargain to immigration fraud and to a security breach.

Nada Nadim Prouty, a Lebanese national and resident of Virginia, entered the United States on a student visa and earned citizenship through a fake marriage after her visa ran out. She then went to work for the FBI and later at the CIA in what's been described as a `mid level position.'

In April 1999 she was hired by the FBI to work in its Washington office as a special agent working on crimes against US citizens overseas.

The charges said that in 2000 and 2003 she probed FBI computers for records on herself, her sister and Talal Khalil Chahine, her brother in law, and on a Detroit area investigation FBI investigation into Hezbollah.

For those of you who don't know, the Detroit area, especially `Dearbornistan' is a major center of Lebanese Shiites and support for Hezbollah.

Chahine is wanted here in the US for income tax evasion, bribery and extortion charges. He's also suspected of major ties to Hezbollah and is now believed to be in Lebanon. He's also been linked by the US Justice Department with with Hezbollah leader Sheik Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah, who's a designated global terrorist.

Prouty pled guilty in a plea bargain to charges involving `improper access of information' as well as naturalization fraud.Prouty has admitted to paying an unemployed man in 1990 to marry her after her student visa ran out, using the fake marriage to obtain US citizenship in 1994, and divorcing her husband the next year. There's some evidence that the initial money for the fraudulent marriage may have come from Chahine. The news is mostly being confined to the local Detroit area, were she worked and resided.

The naturalization charge is a big one, since it involves defrauding the US government. It carries a maximum sentence of up to 10 years in prison and a 250,000 dollar fine, as well as removal of her citizenship.

As part of the plea bargain, Prouty has agreed to fully cooperate with the prosecutors....although knowing Hezbollah, she probably doesn't know much of value.

We need to be much more careful about whom we let into the country, and especially whom we give security clearances to.

As experts like Steve Emerson have testified to time and again, the are indeed Hezbollah cells here in America.

Our enemies are here, within the gates.

Emerson, a Jew who gets it
A perspective of a moderate Muslim

At the risk of sounding anti-Semitic, I want to say this: either American Jews are completely clueless about the internal struggle inside Islam or they are so cowardly, that they are even afraid to voice their opinion. Or maybe it's a combination of both.

Every time there is a development that involves radical Islam, be it a Mayor of New York attending an Islamist parade, DOJ's officials attending an Islamist conference, or a protester being sued for having the balls to expose an Islamist-sponsored event at an amusement park, the American Jewish community is as quiet as a church mouse. It's like it is not even there.

The effect of this silence is devastating. Not for the Jewish community, not yet. That time is still to come. The silence affects the American Muslim community. Every time moderate Muslims are ignored and Islamists are legitimized (by either direct support from government representatives or silent support of the ADL), radicals gain ground. In the current PC climate, moderate Muslims have pretty much no choice but to keep their mouths shut.

Luckily for us, not everyone in the Jewish community is like that. There are some Jews that are speaking out. One of them is Steven Emerson, who has been warning the West about the dangers of Islamic fundamentalism since before PanAm 103. Most of his current work is focused on exposing the radicals masquerading as the moderates – those radicals who are embraced by the DOJ and the Pentagon, by the mayor of New York Bloomberg (Rudy would never get into bed with terrorist supporters) and the Treasury Department, by the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security, by the Congress and the White House.

There is a war of ideas within Islam, and moderate Muslims are losing. Most of Muslim clergy and Muslim establishment are paid for by the Wahhabis. Moderate Muslims are being run out of Mosques and community centers, and in many cases are physically threatened. Moderate Muslims have no place in the media or public debate, because the place reserved for Muslims is filled by Islamic radicals, who attempt to make criticizing anything Islamic a taboo. According to the Islamists, a Muslim can do no wrong.
1. When a non-Muslim criticizes Islam or Muslims, he/she is an Islamophobe.
2. When a Muslim criticizes Islam or Muslim, he/she is not a real Muslim, therefore see #1.

This is a tactic used by "moderate" Muslims, the darlings of the government and the media. But how can you call someone who praises bin Laden, or has ties to Hamas, or calls for the elimination of Israel, or wants to replace the Constitution with the Koran a moderate? They are anything but moderates, however nobody except for a few people like Steven Emerson seems to notice that. But even when the Emersons of America appeal to the public, they are often being dismissed as alarmists and racists. Well, they are anything, but. You don't have to be a clairvoyant to predict the future when it comes to expansion of radical Islam and extinction of moderate Muslims. All you need to do is get your heads out of the sand.

Why our government is so forgiving and forgetful when it comes to individuals or organizations with known terrorist ties and anti-American views is beyond me. Why the Jewish leaders are so timid when it comes to the subject of radical Islam is incomprehensible.

I thank God every day for people like Steven Emerson, because they are the last glimmer of hope for moderate Muslims.

I agree with a lot of the comment. The Jewish Community leaders in the UK have been noticeable by their silence. The Chief Rabbi occasionally appears in a photo op with leaders from Hindu, Sikh and Muslim communities. I have even been told 'keep quiet', 'why are you raising the profile of Jews in the UK' for my minor postings here and on eureferendum. It means Muslim leaders can deny their is endemic anti-semitism among Islamic activists - 'if their was a problem with anti-semitism Jewish leaders would be complaining - they haven't !!'. The BBC uses the same excuse to ignore anti-semitism by saying that Jewish leaders have not complained. Fortunately Channel 4 have done their own reporting and investigation of anti-Semitism. The silence of Jewish leaders in the face of anti-Semitism in the UK is like that of German Jews in the 1930's. Then we got Fascism today we get Islamo-Fascism.

Hello Ivan,
I also have my problems with Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, who spent a great deal of time having tea with radical Islamists and using the anti-Jewish Guardian to shill for his book on diversity instead of providing forceful leadership for the Jews of Britainin th eface of an existential threat.

As a matter of fact, I had a bit of correspondance with the rabbi,or more accurately, his staff, since Rabbi Sacks declined to directly answer some politely phrased if pointed questions. In my last e-mail, I predicted that the rabbi would reap the whirlwind he had helped to sow, and lo and behold, a year afterwards he was whinging about how he felt `uncomfortable' being a Jew in Britain, for the first time in his life, and about a `tsunami of anti-Semitism' in Britain!

And BTW, there's a link to the Channel Four documentary you mention onsite here if you do a search.

I truly feel for you, Ivan. If I were a Jew in Britain, I would have left long ago.

Actually, I feel that way about a good chunk of western Europe and Scandanavia.

Thanks for dropping by.
