November 18, 2007 — FBI fraudster Nada Nadim Prouty not only used a sham marriage to get jobs with access to secret terrorist intelligence – her current husband is a State Department employee who has held sensitive posts in Middle Eastern embassies, The Post has learned.
……She also confessed to sneaking into government databases for secret information on her sister and brother-in-law, both linked to the Middle East terror group Hezbollah.
Well, a judge appointed by Jimmy Carter (figures) gave the little colaborator a slap on the wrist:
A federal judge lavished praise Tuesday on an illegal alien who infiltrated the FBI and the CIA before her fraudulent marriage was discovered.
U.S. District Judge Avern Cohn revoked the citizenship of Nada Nadim Prouty and fined her $750. He criticized the government for the way it publicized Prouty’s case and the media for the way they reported it.
“You have rendered extraordinary services to the United States as an agent of the FBI and an employee of the CIA,” Cohn told Prouty. “At no time did you compromise any investigation from improper behavior or inappropriate conduct.”
So, passing classified infomation to Hezbollah is not ‘inappropriate conduct’??
Prouty’s only real crime, Cohn said, was a sham marriage when she was 19 years old. It’s understandable she did not want to return to war-torn Lebanon at the time, he said.
The sham marriage was a precursor for entrance into the military and subsequently, access to classified information. That’s high treason.
Prouty, born in Lebanon, gained U.S. citizenship through a sham marriage, joined the FBI’s Washington field office as a special agent in 1999, and joined the CIA in 2003, according to court records.
Prouty admitted that while an FBI agent, she went into a computer system without authorization in 2003 and obtained information about the Detroit FBI’s investigation of Hezbollah, which the U.S. considers a terrorist organization. She also did name searches of FBI files for (her fugitive brother-in-law) Talal Chahine, herself, and her sister, Elfat El Aouar, Chahine’s wife.
This is a real sidesplitter:
Assistant U.S. Attorney Kenneth Chadwell told Cohn the government did not object to the judge not sending Prouty to prison.
However, “this case should be taken very seriously,” Chadwell told the judge.
You don’t object to the lack of prison time, yet you think it should be taken seriously?
What are you going to do? Just bend her dog tags and send her packing?
I don’t get it. This bitch conned her way into a trusted position that’s supposed to protect the nation’s secrets, and used it to betray the country.
Looks like the government took it about as ‘seriously’ as the braindead judge.
Cohn signed an order to deport Prouty but simultaneously signed a second order withholding the deportation. She will be able to stay in the U.S. but not work or travel outside the country without special permission.
Just great. She can stay here but she won’t be able to leave without permission.
What a punishment. What a fucking joke.
