Illegal immigrant, Muslim from Lebanon, worked for FBI, CIA, stole info, passed it to Hizballah

Whew. This story has everything: an illegal immigration angle, a Keystone Kops angle, an espionage angle, a moderate-Muslims-condemn-terror-or-do-they angle, and more. It would make a great movie. If this kind of thing doesn’t kill us first.

The illegal immigration angle is of course that illegal immigration is a national security issue, and that illegal immigrants have no business working for the FBI and the CIA. That in turn leads to the Keystone Kops angle: what on earth was the FBI and the CIA thinking, giving this woman key jobs? Of course, no one would dream of asking Nada Nadim Prouty or anyone like her sensitive questions about where they stand on the jihad ideology and Islamic supremacism. Why, you’re automatically a bigot just for thinking that such questions should be asked. But when you don’t ask, of course, and make no effort to investigate in any other way, you don’t get answers.

The espionage angle: why did the FBI and CIA, clueless again, give her access to sensitive information? And of course finally there is the moderate-Muslims-condemn-terror-or-do-they angle: the FBI and CIA people who hired her were probably avid to get Muslims on staff so that they wouldn’t appear anti-Muslim, and she no doubt had pluperfect bona fides as a moderate. If she was then funnelling information to Hizballah, it only underscores the fact that there is no reliable way to distinguish a peaceful Muslim who rejects today’s jihad from one who subscribes to that jihad.

There is also the Arab American Institute link: last week I wrote about La Shish, the restaurant chain owned by Prouty’s brother, who has fled the country to escape indictment for evading taxes and sending the restaurant money to Hizballah (to the tune of $20 million). La Shish was one of the sponsors, despite this indictment, of the AAI’s recent conference, where Democratic presidential candidates and Ron Paul were falling all over themselves to condemn “racial profiling” — anti-terror efforts be damned — and grovel for the Arab vote. And now here comes yet more evidence of just whom they were groveling before.

“U.S. prosecutors: Illegal immigrant worked for FBI, CIA, stole info: Woman was sister-in-law of fugitive La Shish restaurant owner, stole info on investigation,” by David Ashenfelter for the Detroit Free Press :

The sister-in-law of the indicted fugitive owner of the La Shish restaurant chain got sensitive jobs at the FBI and CIA, despite being an illegal immigrant, federal prosecutors said in court documents unsealed today in Detroit.

The woman, Nada Nadim Prouty, 37, of Vienna, Va., also tapped into a sensitive FBI computer to find out what federal investigators knew about her, La Shish restaurant owner Talal Chahine, and her sister, who is married to Chahine.

Prosecutors said she took an unknown quantity of classified information home with her. It’s unclear what happened, or what she did with the information, prosecutors said.

The information pertained to a federal investigation of Chahine and his possible involvement with Hizballah, which has been declared a terrorist organization by the U.S State Department….

It may be unclear what she did with the classified information that she took home, but here’s a clue, from “Former FBI Agent Accused Of Leaking Info,” from CBS News:

A woman who previously worked as an FBI agent and a CIA analyst is expected to plead guilty to charges she disclosed unauthorized information to people outside the government, CBS News has learned.

Sources say the woman, from Lebanon, entered the United States on a student visa and earned citizenship through a sham marriage.

While officials say there is no evidence of actual espionage and no evidence that she was working as a spy, she is accused of passing information to sympathizers of Hezbollah, a group the US has labeled a terrorist organization.

Some useful information comes also from “Prosecutors: LaShish owner’s sister-in-law infiltrated CIA, FBI,” by Paul Egan for The Detroit News:

DETROIT — An illegal alien with links to Hezbollah penetrated the Central Intelligence Agency and the FBI, federal prosecutors in Detroit said today.

Nada Nadim Prouty, 37, of Vienna, Va., a sister-in-law of fugitive LaShish Restaurants owner Talal Chahine, pleaded guilty in federal court today to conspiracy to defraud the United States, unauthorized computer access, and naturalization fraud.

According to an information unsealed today, Lebanese-born Prouty gained U.S. citizenship in 1994 through a fraudulent marriage, joined the FBI’s Washington Field Office as special agent in 1999 and joined the CIA in June, 2003.

She resigned her CIA post, described as “mid-level,” last week, officials said.

    A big N-O on that one partner.

    We Americans in general seem rather clueless about
    espionage compared to the rest of the world. But
    you’re right, these P.C. blinders sure don’t help.

    I wouldn’t trust any Muslim to do anything but try
    to screw an infidel over. Muslims out!

    Imagine these people in government, the judiciary, in education or the sons or possibly the daughters of these immigrants becoming pilots, immigration agents etc.

    Its already happening, but it can’t go on. It is suicidal insanity. It must stop.

    As a life-long Dearborn-istan resident, I never, never, never have patronized La Shish or any muslim run establishment. And never will. Why? Because muslims are very, very cliquish and maintain allengiance to their old homeland (the stateless “state” of Islam) and not the the nation that they immigrate to.

    What strikes me about this story is AN ILLEGAL ALIEN, GETS A JOB WITH THE FBI AND THE CIA. Good background checking going on there, huh boys? Political correctness – that’s the reason why no one at either agency look deep into her background.

    It’s the immigration, stupid! Duh.

    Re: “Feel safer?’

    My gut reaction over the last couple of years has been to get involved in local networks. Our fish and game club now has around fifteen new applicants every month, a huge jump. Joining hundreds and hundreds of members.

    “They’re coming out of the woodwork.’
    – A senior member of a large fraternal organization remarking on the surge in new applicants.

  6. says

    You could see this coming a mile away.

    After 9-11, both the FBI and the CIA went on a mad rush to hire Arabic-speakers to translate documents and recordings. It was inevitable that some of the applicants would have less-than-honorable intentions…and just as inevitable that in this mad rush, the vetting process would be flawed.

    Question:

    A year or two ago, there was an article hear at JW indicating the Feds refuse to hire Arabic-speaking Jews as translators.

    Was there really ever such a policy and if so, is it still being implemented?

  7. says

    only one illegal immigrant helping the feds? in the UK they have 5000 illegal immigrants working in sensitive government positions.

    get over it!

    Okay, pez, here’s a dialectized translation of the government’s diversity statement in “moron”:

    I just fired off a civil email to Senator Feinstein. She, of course, will get right on the case. Just when I think the FBI will gets it’s act together ( forget about the CIA they are hopeless ) this hits the news. The FBI may be hopeless too.

  10. says

    Probably more important than what she took and what she did with it, is this: Will the story be widely publicized, with coverage of the Islamic connection (our growing fifth column), or will the media say, “The sister of a Lebanese restaurant owner was found guilty of espionage. And in other news, Britney Spears… “

  11. says

    From the bizzaro world of CIA human resources via Pez:

    “Diversity reflects the unique ways we vary as Intelligence Officers”our nationality, race, ethnicity, gender, age, language, culture, sexual orientation, education, values, beliefs, abilities, and disabilities. These assorted attributes create different demographic, functional, and intellectual views, which are so vital to our innovation, agility, collection, and analysis.”

    More like vital to maintaining our indecision, paralysis, and pathetic obsession with trying to make sure no one’s itsy bitsy feelings get hurt, instead of identifying and eliminating enemy wherever they are found. This hysterical obsession with diversity and sensitivity, at the expense of demanding simple civility, should be made the butt of jokes everywhere it is promulgated, by members of every ethnic group.

    Simply put: save your Frankfurt School of Pacifism for subduing the enemy. The last thing the United States needs right now is a more “sensitivity training”. We have laws that govern overt behavior between individuals, and the treatment of illegal aliens and spies. How about just enforcing the law, and getting the hell out of the “feelings” business?

    Suck it up, or go work for McDonalds, and we’ll find some staff that can get the job done.

    Actually, the food and the service at LaShish were quite excellent. It was several years ago that I had a meal there with my in-laws – a place which they raved about until recently. The food was excellent, the wait staff was very proficient, attentive, and middle-eastern. I wonder how many of them knew of the part they were playing then in the global Jihad.

    This episode just goes to show how extensively our nation has been infiltrated.

  13. says

    From “Broken: The Troubled Past and Uncertain Future of the FBI” by Richard Gid Powers, about the best history of the Bureau I’ve seen:

    “The Bureau also learned another lesson: that it was always safer to pursue right-wing extremist groups than those on the left, despite Hoover’s obvious preference for pursuing the latter. But he learned … that when investigating the left or issues they supported, one never knew when he might brush up against hidden tripwires that would set the entire left barking, snapping, and sometimes biting. This was a lesson impressed on the Bureau repeatedly, until finally during the 1990s, while terror cells were sinking roots into the Islamic community, the Bureau shied away from any investigations that might have subjected it to criticism for ethnic profiling, maintaining … that the real terror threat came from right-wing extremists and militias out in the boondocks, who had few defenders in Washington.”

    Papa Whiskey:

    “the Bureau shied away from any investigations that might have subjected it to criticism for ethnic profiling, maintaining … that the real terror threat came from right-wing extremists and militias out in the boondocks, who had few defenders in Washington.”

    Exactly, the same mind numbing reasoning parrots that Christianity is as big a threat as Islam. Well, the Clinton Administration knew how to handle the radical Christian threat… shoot and burn them to death.

    Just give us a little of the same ferocity directed toward the enemies who daily pledge to change our government and destroy our democracy.

    From Dhimmiwatch November 26, 2003
    http://www.jihadwatch.org/dhimmiwatch/archives/000243.php

    Dhimmitude at the FBI: Jews Need Not Apply to Fight Terror

    The best line in this terrific Front Page piece by Paul Sperry is the last: Shelomo Alfassa, vice president of the Foundation for the Advancement of Sephardic Studies and Culture in New York, says: “Imagine if during the war against Hitler, Franklin D. Roosevelt felt that having Jews fight the Nazis might upset the everyday German?”
    But that’s what’s happening in the war on terror: Jews (and people from other dhimmi communities whom I know personally) have been having trouble getting jobs for which they are eminently qualified.

    Says Sperry: “A few weeks after Islamic terrorists toppled the World Trade Center, two FBI agents from the New York field office paid a visit to a Sephardic Jewish community center in Brooklyn. Their mission: recruit Arabic linguists to help interpret interviews and intercepts of Osama bin Laden’s network.

    “Sephardic Jews have lived in Arab countries and know the language, not to mention the culture and history of the region. And being close to Israel, the main target of Islamic terrorism, they were gung-ho to help the feds fight the war on terrorism here.

    “It was a good move, or so most involved thought at the time — and long overdue.

    “Federal investigators had missed clues to both the 2001 and 1993 World Trade Center attacks not because they didn’t have them, but because they didn’t know what they had until it was too late. They were buried in a backlog of untranslated wiretaps and documents in Arabic.

    “A chronic shortage of Arabic-speaking translators had resulted in an accumulation of thousands of hours of untranslated audiotapes and written material stored in FBI lockers.

    “The FBI’s New York field office, at least, knew such delays were no longer acceptable after the 9-11 attack. The bureau’s translators were the key to preventing another homeland strike, but they had to convert Arabic chatter to English faster. That meant hiring a lot more translators as quickly as possible.

    “So in October 2001, while rescue workers were still pulling remains from Ground Zero, two agents from the FBI’s offices located nearby reached out to local Arabic-speaking Jews to do just that. Agents Carol Motyka and Marsha Parrish met with an official at the Sephardic Bikur Holim, a Jewish social-services agency in Brooklyn.

    “At the meeting, Yola Haber, who heads the agency’s employment division, says she agreed to help recruit Arabic-speaking Jews for the bureau. Most of them applied on-line for the translator jobs. All told, she says she referred some 90 applicants, possibly more, to the FBI. They included retired linguists who had experience working for Israeli radio in Arabic and for the Israeli army.

    “Remarkably, not one of them was hired.

    “‘We sent them a lot of people, and nobody made it to the finish line,’ complained Sephardic Bikur Holim director Doug Balin. ‘Not one person was found eligible for these jobs, which is outrageous.’

    “Instead, the FBI hired dozens of Arab-American Muslims as translators.”

    *****
    Then from Jihad Watch on June 8, 2005
    http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/006563.php

    CIA reviewing translator security rules

    Does this mean that they’re thinking about hiring translators who do have families in vulnerable areas? “C.I.A. Is Reviewing Its Security Policy for Recruitment,” from the New Duranty Times, with thanks to Alyssa A. Lappen:

    WASHINGTON, June 7 – The Central Intelligence Agency is reviewing security procedures that have led the agency to turn away large numbers of Arabic-language linguists and other potential recruits with skills avidly sought by the agency since the attacks of 2001, Congressional and intelligence officials say.
    Many of those rejected, the officials say, have been first-generation Americans who bring the linguistic facility and cultural knowledge that the C.I.A. has been trying to develop in seeking to improve its performance in penetrating terrorist organizations and otherwise gathering intelligence in the Middle East and South Asia.

    Many of these applicants still have relatives abroad, often in countries that raise alarm among security officers. Former intelligence officials say that besides the problems of conducting thorough background checks in those countries, the agency also worries that recruits could be blackmailed if their families were vulnerable.

    Is this no longer true? Is it no longer a problem? Why not?

  17. says

    “we’re winning the war on terrorism” – really!?

    Why don’t we start training our own Aradic translators?

    Nope.

    Makes too much sense.

    Meanwhile, with the singular support of the moron who leads the Free World, Kosovo jihadis are raising an illegal army. With Clinton’s signature on a document that consigns perpetual sovereignty over Kosovo to Serbia – its Slavic locals before the Ottoman rape-colonization – Bush spat in the face of all Slavs by promoting an independent Kosovo terror entity. Nevermind the numerous Youtube documentations of the thousands of al-Qaeda/Ikhwan/Jamaati terrorist who waltzed into the Bosnia gutter, Bush chose to create yet another terror base, while burning hundreds of billions of nation building dollars in Islamic garbage cans posing as countries.

    East Europeans don’t want the confrontation with Russia, that would result from Bush’s Euro missile insanity. Still he persists on that folly, without a word of scrutiny from the Islamic doormat media.

    Frankly if I were a capable Jew I’d pass any offer from the CIA or FBI. What’s the point of working so hard and then finding that when a mistake is made, they accuse of being a Zionist agent. Far better to let the rot of PC and Arabism and incompetence work itself out.

  20. says

    From Steve Emerson’s site IPT, his take on this includes: (Prouty = El Aouar)

    “… a search of El Aouar’s residence turned up a “thank you letter” for sponsoring 40 “orphans,” as well as images of Chahine and his family in front of a Hizballah outpost. According to the proffer,

    “[t]he government is aware that the sponsorship of orphans is a euphemism used by Hizballah to refer to the orphans of martyrs. This is a common public relations and recruitment tool used by Hizballah. Hizballah gains favor with the public in Lebanon by supporting “orphans,’ while at the same time recruiting others into the terrorist organization willing to sacrifice their lives in terrorist operations based in part on the promise that Hizballah will take care of their families.”

    The espionage angle: why did the FBI and CIA, clueless again, give her access to sensitive information? And of course finally there is the moderate-Muslims-condemn-terror-or-do-they angle: the FBI and CIA people who hired her were probably avid to get Muslims on staff so that they wouldn’t appear anti-Muslim, and she no doubt had pluperfect bona fides as a moderate.

    Here in the United States our Muslim citizens are making many contributions in business, science and law, medicine and education, and in other fields.

    Is there any wonder that “security agencies” would be staffed by illegals and subversive individuals when the heads-of-state could easily fall beneath the rubric of “Spies and Traitors” themselves?

    An interesting aside- on the 11pm local newscasts in Detroit, WDIV (NBC affiliate) was quick to point out that this woman had no links to terrorism and was not accused of spying.

    Over at WXYZ (ABC affiliate) they did indeed mention the woman’s connection to La Shish (omitted from the WDIV story) and even included an interview with a security analyst that admitted that this woman had connections with Hizbollah. Said security analyst also added that we don’t know what kind of info she leaked.

    I recall a recent expose on television about a woman who was fired from the FBI for trying to warn her superiors that Arabic translators were not providing accurate translations, either by the omission of critical information or the deliberate editing of certain material that changed its entire meaning. She is an Arab and worked at the FBI for many years. She also advised her superiors of the anti-American, pro-jihad conversations among Arab FBI employees that she often overheard. Instead of being concerned about the possibility of internal spies and traitors, they became angry and defensive, and refused to take her seriously. She even re-translated many documents and pointed out the discrepancies, only to be reprimanded, threatened, and ultimately fired.

    The hundreds of recently hired Arabic (muslim) translators were the culprits but the hotshots who run the FBI were more interested in proving to the world that they are an equal opportunity employer than in the security of this country. She went all the way to the top and got axed for her trouble. It was a very, very disturbing story.

    It appears that the FBI has a new mission as its top priority—muslim outreach. Yet understanding islam and its agenda is not an issue. The smart, dedicated people who know what’s really going on get fired, while the muslim traitors remain on the payroll and provide bogus translations. I believe the muslims demanded and got separate restrooms too; wouldn’t want them to contaminate themselves using kaffir facilities. This should have evolved into the most notorious and widely publicized employment discrimination or unfair dismissal lawsuit ever filed, but I haven’t heard another word about it. If what this woman said is true, and I believe it, the FBI is just another image-conscious, corrupt, incompetent bureaucracy that is focused on political correctness and protecting the careers of the top tier executives. Fighting crime and terrorism is not even third or fourth on its list of things to do.
    Between the CIA, the FBI, and the STate Department, we could well be doomed.

    FBI Frakking Bunch of Idiots

    CIA Completely Ignorant A-hats

    From a online Newsweek story I saw this morning…”According to a U.S. official familiar with the case, “said Tuesday that the government’s investigation had uncovered no evidence so far that Prouty, who was employed by the CIA until last week, had compromised any undercover operations or passed along sensative information to Hizbollah operatives.””

    There you have it!! I mean…the government hasn’t found ANY evidence the classified documents she took we passed off the the enemy, so it obviously didn’t happen. I’ll bet everyone working at those agencies just takes home a few classified documents every now and then for the hell of it. No harm done.

    We ARE doomed. If this is the best we can do after all that has happened WE ARE DOOMED.

  37. says

    I haven’t had the time to read all of the comments, so I don’t know if anyone has addressed this yet but, how does anyone get access to classified information (much less even get a job at the FBI / CIA) without a background investigation? If she had a background investigation, how is it that they did not notice that she is an illegal alien?

    So we have important and powerful security, law enforcement, and intelligence gathering agencies that cannot keep secrets from the press, cannot detect an illegal alien even with a background investigation, and refuse to acknowlege that there is a threat in Islam in the first place.

    Very nice. Be sure to smile when you pay your taxes (soon to go up steeply).

    All in all, a fine upstanding citizen. It’s just that too often US citizenship takes a backseat to belonging to the islamic mob. In large ways and small, muslims in western countries do what they can to advance the fast AND slow jihad.

    While officials say there is no evidence of actual espionage and no evidence that she was working as a spy, she is accused of passing information to sympathizers of Hezbollah,

    Are we having fun yet? Is this movie weird enough for you? And what about that ‘background check’?
    You can’t get a job as a janitor around here without one of those and a drug test…How many more just like her are in sensitive positions?

    This is hardly a surprise considering all the members of the intelligence community who have sought their 15 minutes of fame and a book deal in the years since 9/11. The composition of the community has changed dramatically over the last 20. With the appointment of Belgium born chemist, John Deutch, to CIA director in 1995 a new era of Political Correctness was born at the nations top spy shop [CIA Outed by Congress in Denial: “Contorted Culture”]. Deutch was quietly forced to resign after secret documents were discovered on his laptop. Is it any wonder Donald Rumsfeld learned to rely on military intelligence to the dismay of George Tenet as we engaged in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    We have to let our representatives we know what’s going on, as the public did with immigration legislation, and we want an intelligence community that does it’s job rather than one that looks good not doing it.

    The CIA and FBI are absurd. I applied to work for both of them – good college, good GPA, and im in good shape…and never heard back from either of them. Yet they let this illegal immigrant have a mide level job. I would never want to work for them and this story will turn off a lot of intelligent people.

    .. and yet, Rudy “sancturyp-city” Giuiliani is the front-runner, while Tom Tancredo is still put down as a ‘one trick pony’. Little do Ameericans realize that the Rudy’s “sanctury-city” was hit by the very illegal immigrants, it provides sanctury to, on 9/11. Tom Tancredo understands the threat of illegal immigration and is willing to do whatever it takes to protect America from this attack.

    In these times of political treason, Amrica needs a statesman with a patriotic heart, like Tom Tancredo. His record speaks for himself.

    Eventually we will have to reduce the number of moslems among us, one way or another.

    supercargo:

    It makes no difference WHY Russia “pulled out out of Eastern Europe” because Russia was never invited into the region anyway and had no business imposing its Communist ideology on those (hapless) people. Russians controlled Eastern Europe by dint of sheer brutality (it invaded Poland in 1939 for example, aiding and abetting Hitler’s invasion there). The same does not apply to the United States, which contrary to whatever you may believe, has not invaded this region by dint of military conquest (which the Russians were guilty of).

    FYI: Iran’s nuclear missiles may soon be able to reach Europe and wreak havoc there. Russia can not help Europeans in this scenario. But US anti-missile technology can.
