The unusual experiences of courageous 9/11 whistleblower Susan Lindauer are reported in numerous revealing articles by the major media. The below excerpts of these reports from the New York Times, Washington Post, and more show that Lindauer was arrested, imprisoned without trial, declared mentally incompetent when she demanded to stand trial, and eventually released.
After five years under indictment without a trial, all charges against her were quietly dropped just days before President Obama’s inauguration. Lindauer is now courageously speaking out about the incredible experiences she claims landed her in prison. She presents powerful evidence that the real reason she was arrested, imprisoned, and declared incompetent was because she knew the U.S. government had clear foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks and much more.

Ex-Congressional Aide Accused of Working With Iraqi Intelligence Before War
March 12, 2004, New York Times
Federal prosecutors charged a former Congressional aide on Thursday with working with the Iraqi intelligence service before the war, and investigators said she had sought to influence American policy by presenting herself to a highly placed relative, Andrew H. Card Jr., the White House chief of staff, as an intermediary. The woman, Susan P. Lindauer, 40, was arrested Thursday morning by federal agents at her home in Takoma Park, Md.
Federal prosecutors unsealed an indictment that said she had repeatedly met with representatives of the Iraqi intelligence service starting in 1999 and that she had traveled to Baghdad in 2002 for meetings with Iraqi intelligence officials. Ms. Lindauer described herself as an antiwar activist and said she was innocent. The indictment said Ms. Lindauer delivered a letter early last year to a United States government official listing her access to and contacts with Saddam Hussein’s government. Investigators said the official was Mr. Card, one of President Bush’s closest associates. Ms. Lindauer [is] either a second cousin or a distant relative of Mr. Card.
Federal law enforcement officials said that despite Ms. Lindauer’s extensive contacts with the Iraqis, there was little evidence to suggest that she had harmed national security by passing any sensitive intelligence to the Hussein government. Instead, she was largely perceived, even by some law enforcement officials, as a woman who fancied herself a peacemaker.
Neighbor Seemed Activist, Not Agent

Susan Lindauer was described as mercurial and passionate in her politics, but those who know her said yesterday that she seemed an unlikely operative in Saddam Hussein’s spy network. “Like a lot of us, she questioned why it was necessary for the U.S. to be in Iraq,” said Thomas Kaufman, who lives across from the Manor Circle home where she lived. Lindauer … has traversed an unusual path in her 40 years, rejecting the politics of her father, a onetime Republican gubernatorial nominee in Alaska, and moving from job to job until her arrest yesterday on charges that she was paid by Iraqi intelligence agents before the U.S. invasion. A Smith College graduate with a master’s degree in public policy from the London School of Economics, she worked as a temporary business reporter with the Seattle Post-Intelligencer in 1987 and then as an editorial writer at the Herald of Everett, Wash., for two years. The Herald is owned by The Washington Post Co. She worked briefly as a researcher at U.S. News and World Report before becoming a press aide for a succession of Democrats in Congress.
Note: This 9/11 whistleblower had an advanced degree from the London School of Economics, described in Wikipedia as “among the world’s most selective universities.” And though she had worked for top newspapers and was trusted by members of Congress, she was later painted as being crazy, possibly since age 7, by government prosecutors and psychologists.
