5.0 out of 5 stars Goodbye America, 29 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Extreme Prejudice: The Terrifying Story of the Patriot Act and the Cover Ups of 9/11 and Iraq (Paperback)
Susan Lindauer's experience is gripping and horrifying. Our country is in trouble, folks. A perfectly normal person doing the right thing for her country can be thrown in jail without a court hearing with the new secrecy laws. She was in jail for nearly a year.

Acting as a Defence Intelligence Agency asset, Lindauer and her handlers gave several warnings of an imminent attack on the twin towers using airplanes to the FBI and higher officials. This was just weeks before 9/11.

During the buildup to the Iraq invasion using back channels she had achieved an agreement with Saddam's government extremely favorable to the United States. Saddam was making every concession imaginable--including tracking Al Quaida--but that's not what Bush wanted to hear.

As the horror of the war hit the American public, and 9/11 hearings began, Lindauer contacted McCain and Colin Powell and other politicians in an attempt to blow the whistle. The administration retaliated with her arrest on trumped up charges as being an Iraqi spy.

But a worse horror was to come. Instead of being released on bail with a hearing date, she was immediately jailed in a psychiatric hospital. Her release date was postponed indefinitely. The administration prosecutor eventually demanded that she be given psychiatric drugs so powerful that her mind would be destroyed.

In a crucial hearing about whether she should be drugged, Lindauer only narrowly escaped that fate by a courageous judge who stood up to the Republican's power. On Bush's last day in office her case was dropped.

No trial, no jury, no witnesses, no truth about 9/11 and an unnecessary war, and no America.
