Lindauer: "I asked if I could testify in front of the new blue ribbon Presidential Commission on Iraqi Pre-War Intelligence. Within a month of making this request, I awoke to the sound of FBI agents pounding on the door of my house in Maryland. They had a warrant for my arrest."
Following her arrest, Lindauer spent one full year imprisoned, without access to legal counsel, on an airbase in Texas. All charges against her were dropped several days before Obama took office. Lindauer, a former speech writer for two members of Congress, is the cousin of George W. Bush's former chief of staff, Andrew Card.
For obvious reasons, this is a story that America's mainstream media is very reluctant to explore.
