9/11 Whistleblower Susan Lindauer
News Articles, Videos, More on 9/11 Whistleblower Susan Lindauer
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.
Susan 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.
After reading the below news excerpts, it is highly recommended to watch at least the first 10 to 20 minutes of the 90-minute talk given by Lindauer available here.

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
March 12, 2004, Washington Post
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.
Susan Lindauer's Mission To Baghdad
August 29, 2004, New York Times
On the morning of March 11, 2004, Susan Lindauer woke to find five F.B.I. agents at her front door. She was charged with having acted as an unregistered agent of Saddam Hussein's Iraqi government. Having grown up in a household in which public policy was frequently the stuff of dinner-table conversation ... Lindauer wanted to help change the world. The way she chose to do so, however, was not by signing petitions or marching in demonstrations, but by engaging in the kinds of clandestine encounters that you read about in spy novels -- meeting foreign diplomats, passing along secret messages and engaging in other activities that would eventually lead to her arrest. While Lindauer was not accused of espionage, as initial reports of her arrest suggested, the government did charge her with a serious crime, even if the charge itself may seem like a technicality. By failing to register herself formally as a lobbyist and by supposedly following instructions from Iraqi diplomats and intelligence agents at the United Nations, the government charged, Lindauer had been acting as ''an unregistered agent of a foreign government." Lindauer acknowledges that the meetings detailed in the federal indictment took place, but denies acting as an agent of Iraq or any other country. Her aim, as she explained it, was to function as ... an unofficial go-between who could help break the cycle of isolation, paranoia and suffering created by sanctions. "U.S. intelligence knew what I was doing,'' she said. ''Everything that I did,'' she said, ''I was giving to the chief of staff of the White House.'' Dr. Richard Fuisz [is] a globe-trotting Virginia-based businessman whom Lindauer described ... as ''my contact in the C.I.A..'' Citing unnamed sources, The Sunday Herald, a Scottish newspaper, reported in 2000 that Fuisz had been the C.I.A.'s most important agent in Damascus during the 80's. ''This is not an issue I can confirm or deny,'' Fuisz told The Herald. ''I am not allowed to speak about these issues. In fact, I can't even explain why I can't speak about these issues.'' Fuisz confirmed that he saw Lindauer about once a week on average between 1994 and 2001. John Lindauer [is Lindauer's] younger brother. One conversation John had with his sister in the summer of 2001 stuck in his mind. ''She goes, 'Listen, the gulf war isn't over. There are plans in effect right now. They will be raining down on us from the skies.''' His sister told him that Lower Manhattan would be destroyed. ''And I was like, yeah, whatever,'' he continued. When he woke up six weeks later to the news that two planes had crashed into the twin towers ... he had a dislocating sense of having his reality replaced by Susan's strange world. Parke Godfrey, a close friend of Lindauer's for the last 15 years, is a professor of computer science at York University in Ontario. He says that Lindauer warned him not to take a job at N.Y.U. the summer before the Sept. 11 attacks.
Note: Though the entire, long article at the link above tries to paint Lindauer as being somewhat delusional, it does reveal an abundance of important information supporting many of her claims, including government foreknowledge of 9/11.
Ex-Congress Aide Accused in Spy Case Is Free on Bail
September 9, 2006, New York Times
A former journalist and Congressional aide accused of working with Iraqi intelligence before the war was released from prison yesterday after a federal judge ruled that she could not be forced to take antipsychotic medication in an effort to make her competent to stand trial. Judge Mukasey also criticized the strength of the government's case, saying that the legal standard for forcibly administering medication requires a strong government interest in prosecution, and that the government has not been able to establish that standard in this case. Prosecutors said she met with Iraqi intelligence officers at places in Baghdad, including Al Rashid Hotel, in 2002, where she accepted $5,000 in cash. One doctor found that Ms. Lindauer had a history of psychotic episodes going back to her childhood, possibly at the age of 7.
Note: This article paints Susan Lindauer as being quite crazy, and having been so possibly since age seven. Yet clearly, she had enough sense to cause the government to want to put her in prison for her activities trying to make peace between the U.S. and certain Arab countries.
Woman Accused of Iraq Ties Is Ruled Unfit for Trial Again
September 16, 2008, New York Times
A federal judge in Manhattan has ruled that Susan P. Lindauer, a former journalist and Congressional aide who was accused of working with Iraqi intelligence before the war, is still mentally incompetent to stand trial. Ms. Lindauer, who had been declared incompetent for trial by Judge Michael B. Mukasey, now the United States attorney general, tried to persuade a different judge that she was now competent. But the second judge, Loretta A. Preska [ruled] that while Ms. Lindauer was "highly intelligent" and "generally capable of functioning at a high level in many ways," she also was suffering from a mental disease or defect. Ms. Lindauer, 45, pleaded not guilty to the charges against her. Ms. Lindauer ... said by phone on Tuesday: "The right to a trial is fundamental in a democracy. I have been fighting for a trial because I am innocent and I believe I have the right to prove my innocence." Judge Preska, in her ruling, said that Ms. Lindauer generally understood the roles of jurors, prosecutors, defense lawyers and judges, but did not seem to have a "rational understanding of the roles" they played in her case.
Note: How interesting that the first judge in Lindauer's, Michael Mukasey, case ended up becoming the U.S. attorney general. Mukasey also defended Larry Silverstein, owner of the lease on the World Trade Centers, in his claims for double insurance payments of $7 billion on the attacks. Now according to the second judge, Loretta Preska, she is "highly intelligent" yet incapable of understanding the roles of those involved in a trail. Hmmmm. Watch the video of her, you will likely agree that something is fishy here.
Case dropped against aide accused of helping Iraq
January 16, 2009, Fox News/Associated Press
The government has quietly dropped its case against a former congressional aide accused of helping an Iraqi spy agency but later ruled mentally unfit for trial. But Susan Lindauer said she won't go away quietly. [She] vowed to sue, saying she was falsely arrested and prosecuted. "I am furious. I am going to be filing a civil lawsuit seeking punitive damages," Lindauer said Friday. Prosecutors said in court papers filed Thursday that prosecuting Lindauer would no longer be in the interests of justice. During a hearing last year, psychiatrist Stuart Kleinman, who examined Lindauer at prosecutors' request, said Lindauer has a serious, long-standing mental disorder that includes grandiose delusions. She had been jailed for about a year but released from custody in 2006 after another judge ruled the government could not force her to be medicated for her delusions so she could stand trial. Lindauer said she helped provide information for years to the U.S. government about Iraq and Libya. She said she was prosecuted in retaliation for opposing the invasion of Iraq.
Case Dropped Against Md. Woman
January 17, 2009, Washington Post
The federal government has dropped its case against a former congressional aide accused of helping an Iraqi spy agency, saying in court papers that prosecuting her would no longer be in the interests of justice. But Susan Lindauer has vowed to sue, saying that she was falsely arrested and prosecuted. The Takoma Park, Md., woman was arrested in 2004 on charges that she conspired to act as a spy for the Iraqi intelligence service, making contact through the Iraqi consulate in New York. A judge last year ruled Lindauer was mentally unfit for trial.
Video Talk: Susan Lindauer Reveals Government 9/11 Foreknowledge
August 2011, Portland 9/11 Truth Alliance Video
[Minute 1:20] I was the second non-Arab American ever indicted on the Patriot Act. [Minute 3:20] In five years [under indictment], I was allowed one morning of testimony with two witnesses – a former chief of staff for a ... member of Congress and my old friend [Professor Godfrey Parke] who verified the 9/11 warnings that I'm going to talk about. [Minute 7:40] In April of 2001, I was summoned to my CIA handler Dr. Richard Fuisz. He said he had a message for me to deliver to New York. And the message was this: "We are looking for information on a conspiracy to hijack airplanes. We expect the target to be the World Trade Center. We think they're going to fly the airplanes into the World Trade Center. And we want the Iraqis to provide any 'actionable intelligence.' We want you to tell the Iraqis that if they fail to give us this information and if it is later determined that they knew the information and they did not to give it to us, then the United States is prepared to go to war with Iraq." ... [Minute 41:15] I was locked up in prison on a military base for a year. I was held under indictment for five years. The government was so threatened by what I was going to say that ... they wanted to forcibly drug me with Haldol, Ativan, and Prozac, which would have chemically lobotomized me. They could not identify anything wrong with me except that I argued that ... I had worked in antiterrorism for nine years and I warned about 9/11. They actually petitioned the court on the Patriot Act for the right to detain me up to 10 years in prison with no trial and no hearing. They wanted to lock me up and forcibly drug me at the same time. [Minute 47:15] Judge Mukasey also did the ... insurance claims on 9/11 for Larry Silverstein. They both attended the same synagogue.
Note: Larry Silverstein obtained the first private lease ever on the World Trade Center buildings just months before the 9/11 attacks. In a PBS documentary on 9/11 discussing the free fall collapse of the 47-story World Trade Center Building 7, Silverstein stated, "I remember getting a call from the fire department commander. ... I said ... maybe the smartest thing to do is to pull it. And they made that decision to pull, and then we watched the building collapse." For more on this high strangeness, click here.
