Susan Lindauer

A standout 9/11 whistleblower and U.S. Intelligence Asset, Susan Lindauer is a noted expert on Middle East affairs and former congressional staffer.

After beginning her career as a reporter at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Lindauer covered anti-terrorism at the Iraqi Embassy in New York from 1996 up to the invasion.

As an avid anti-war activist, Susan Lindauer warned of the catastrophic consequences of the War with Iraq. According to her book titled "Extreme Prejudice: The Terrifying Story of the Patriot Act and the Cover-Ups of 9/11 and Iraq," Lindauer worked for the CIA and DIA, serving as a back-channel in U.S. government negotiations with Iraq. Her tireless efforts ultimately led to her incarceration and lengthy legal battle with the Justice Department.

In a 2008 hearing, a Lindauer associate testified that she mentioned an imminent attack on Manhattan with airplanes in 2001.

An internationally-recognized expert on Libya, Iraq, and Yemen, Susan Lindauer has repeatedly appeared on Russia Today news and was profiled on the Iranian television show "The Autograph."
