9-11 whistleblower Susan Lindauer's case confirms we live in Gulag Amerika...

     "I get asked all the time why Washington allowed the 9-11 attack to happen, because that's what they did. They allowed it to happen, 9-11 was the outcome of a shadow policy of "deliberate avoidance.'   Senior officials got warned over and over what was coming by numerous highly knowledgeable sources... In the aftermath, it's obvious that 9-11 provided the vehicle for war with Iraq. Everyone can see that."


Excerpts from Susan Lindauer's book, Extreme Prejudice

    "I was one of only three U.S. assets covering the Iraqi Embassy at the United Nations before the war, granting me vast primary knowledge of pre-war intelligence, as a direct participant in some of the events. I would soon discover that all three of us got arrested as "Iraqi agents' when Congress and the White House decided to cook the intelligence books.

     Second, Along with Jose Padilla, I was one of the very first non-Arab Americans to discover the slippery and treacherous legal terrain of the Patriot Act. By invoking the Patriot Act against me, the Justice department used the same tools to smash political dissension against the Republican policy that Congress enacted to break terrorists. The message was simple: Oppose the Grand Old Party and you become an "enemy of the state'" On the morning of my arrest, I saw with total clarity that I was the first casualty of the Republican War on Truth."'

    "I get asked all the time why Washington allowed the 9-11 attack to happen, because that's what they did. They allowed it to happen, 9-11 was the outcome of a shadow policy of "deliberate avoidance.'   Senior officials got warned over and over what was coming by numerous highly knowledgeable sources... In the aftermath, it's obvious that 9-11 provided the vehicle for war with Iraq. Everyone can see that."

  "Our team also gave advance warning about a 9-11 style of attack throughout the summer of 2001. And I carried the message"

   "U.S. Intelligence was onto the 9-11 plot. Friendly foreign intelligence agencies relayed serious warnings of a late summer, early autumn attack that would utilize airplanes as weapons inside the United States.  Israel, Jordan and Egypt, all longtime collaborators with U.S. intelligence, provided similar warnings of an imminent terrorist strike four weeks prior to 9-11.  On September 7, 2001, French intelligence sent an urgent message, warning of an imminent attack using airplanes as weapons inside the United States."

    "Clearly our warning was not something the Republican leaders wanted Americans to hear about -- not with the 2004 Presidential election in play -- nor the 2008 campaign for that matter.  Oh Yes, I would be gagged through two presidential elections,"

     "The fast was I knew too much, and I was starting to talk. That's why I was sitting in the holding cage waiting for my arraignment. My arrest came hard and fast after I approached Senator Lott and Senator McCain's offices asking to tell the whole saga from start to finish. U.S. Intelligence understood exactly what that meant. I would blow the whistle and expose the facade. And they know that my truth would be nothing remotely similar to what Congress and the White House was selling to the American people" Only one thing could be guaranteed to stop me" I would have to be "terminated with extreme prejudice' - the operative phrase for destroying an asset or Intelligence officer, body and soul, usually as an assassination."

"Susan Lindauer, Meet Franz Kafka"


     "My case would shine a klieg light on how the Patriot Act damages essential protections in a courtroom, otherwise guaranteed by the Constitution.
     Courtroom proceedings against me would be scattered with "secret evidence' and secret testimony.'   I would lose the right to face my accusers. Or the right to hear the substance of their accusation described by another source"  I was told that conviction of either of the "secret charges' would get me five years in prison.
     If that was not Kafkaesque enough, the Patriot Act relied on "secret evidence' which could be applied to those "secret charges."   Quite literally, the prosecutor had the right to ask a jury to convict me of the secret charges without revealing any evidence whatsoever to prove that the alleged criminal actions ever occurred" If a judge so instructed before deliberations, the jury could be required to ignore the lack of presentation of evidence.
     The fundamental question of "guilt beyond a reasonable doubt' got shattered under the Patriot Act. The jury system in the United State got bludgeoned as well.
    Most ominous of all, evidence that might exonerate me of the charges could be ruled "secret and classified' and therefore in-admissable as well. My attorney and I would be prohibited from knowing of its existence
    Those in power win, those out of power go to prison.
    That's the Patriot Act. It's the new American way."
    Worst by far, after omitting confirmations of my identity from their reports to Judge Mukasey, they sought to imprison me indefinitely and forcibly drug me with Haldol, so that I would be "cured" of believing what all three agencies at the Justice Department recognized to be fully truthful.
     That's the Patriot Act for you. Welcome to the New America. Franz Kafka would be appalled.    Oh yes, I was fighting for my life."
