A back channel to Saddam Hussein who had more integrity than her CIA handlers bargained for. Charged under the Patriot Act.

Susan Lindauer is an American spook turned whistleblower. She was charged under the Patriot Act, imprisoned and then released. She wrote a book, Extreme Prejudice: The Terrifying Story of the Patriot Act and the Cover Ups of 9/11 and Iraq.


Longtime CIA and DIA insider Susan Lindauer was the second US citizen to be charged under the Patriot Act, with "acting as an unregistered agent of a foreign government". While no questions were raised about her mental health until she tried to prevent the invasion of Iraq, in 2005 she was incarcerated against her will by the US government for "psychological evaluation", forcibly administered psychoactive drugs and noted to have a "lengthy delusional history". In 2009, the US government dismissed all charges stating that "prosecuting her would no longer be in the interests of justice."[1]


Lindauer has stated that the UN Sanctions against Iraq were responsible for 2,000,000 deaths, including 1,000,000 children.[2]

Lindauer is forceful in her denunciation of Tony Blair, and has blamed him for the murder of David Kelly.[3]
