Jerry D Riley, May 31, 2011 (view all comments by Jerry D Riley)
Susan Lindauer is first and foremost a tenacious peace activist and former CIA asset who has been called the American Cassandra because of her unheeded warnings about 9/11 and other events. She is also a victim of the Orwellian named USAPATRIOT Act, provisions of which were used to silence and imprison her to keep her from telling her story at a time when it could not only have brought down the Bush presidency but also exposed the true colors of Colin Powell, John McCain, Trent Lott, her second cousin Andrew Card and lots of others.
From the time she was arrested by the FBI and indicted as an unregistered agent of Saddam Hussein, Susan begged for a trial where she could tell her side of the story and let the American public know what was being covered up. What she got instead was imprisonment inside Carswell Air Force Base in Texas where, shades of Stalin, she narrowly avoided attempts to forcibly drug her till such time as she changed her story.
Her 5 year Patriot Act ordeal ended at the very end of the Bush presidency when all charges against her were dropped with the explanation that prosecuting her “would no longer be in the interests of justice.” She was deemed mentally incompetent to assist in her own defense by the prosecutor‘s psychiatrists and the judge accepted this purely phony psychiatry. Mind you Susan is a graduate of Smith College, the London School of Economics, was a reporter for two Seattle area newspapers, was on the staff of then Oregon Representatives Ron Wyden and Peter DeFazio yet was deemed incompetent to assist in her own defense.
In the Alice in Wonderland World of the Patriot Act “secret charges” backed by “secret evidence” are permitted. It was alleged that Susan, for example, “sometime in October 2001” engaged in an unidentified action that violated an unidentified law. (Are any of us competent to assist in defending against such a charge?)
Susan and her attorney could only speculate that this awful crime might have been her receipt of an Iraqi book detailing the devastating increase in birth defects and childhood cancer from depleted uranium munitions we used in the first Gulf War. [This would be highly relevant to anyone else (and their unborn children) who served in Iraq since they were likely subjected to the same serious health risks as the Iraqis. It smells of yet another Agent Orange type government cover up to prevent the expense of treating our military victims and/or their families.]
Today the Patriot Act is being increasingly used by the Obama administration to punish and/or silence other government truth tellers who try to tell us what our government is really doing.
If you are concerned about the direction our country is heading, I can think of no better way to begin the long, tortuous journey toward restoring our constitution and republic than to read and tell others about Extreme Prejudice, and then do everything you can think of to help get the monstrous, Orwellian-named USA PATRIOT Act repealed.
