Susan Lindauer worked as a US intelligence asset and covered anti-terrorism at the Iraqi embassy in New York from 1996 up to the invasion.  Indepedent sources have confirmed that she gave advance warning about the 9/11 attacks.  In early 2004 Lindauer requested to testify before Congress about successful elements of Pre-war intelligence, and also delivered a letter to her second cousin, white House Chief of Staff Andy Card and to Colin Powell warning of the dire consequences of War with Iraq.  Shortly after, Lindauer became one of the first non-Arab Americans arrested under the Patriot Act and was indicted for acting as an “unregistered Iraqi Agent”.  She was subjected to one year in prison on Carswell Air Force Base in Fort Worth, Texas without a trial or hearing, and threatened with indefinite detention and forcible drugging to shut her up. After five years of indictment without a conviction or guilty plea, the Justice Department dismissed all charges five days before President Obama’s inauguration.

Lindauer has written a book Extreme Prejudice: The Terrifying Story of the Patriot Act and the Cover Ups of 9/11 and Iraq about her experience.


9/11: Inside Story on the Missing Tapes

The Missing Security Tapes from the World Trade Center

by Susan Lindauer, former U.S. Asset and 9/11 Whistleblower

I’m on a book tour through the West Coast– at the Veterans for Peace Conference in Portland, and I will be speaking on Friday at 12 noon at Portland State University. Anybody who’s in Portland would be welcome to attend!

Late on the night of August 23, 2001, at about 3 a.m. security cameras in the parking garage of the World Trade Center captured the arrival of two or three truck vans.

Visual examination determined the vans were separate and unique from trucks used by janitorial services, including different colors and devoid of markings. More curious, all the janitorial trucks had pulled out of the Towers by about 2:30 a.m—about half an hour before the second set of vans arrived.

According to my high level State Department source with a top security clearance, who disclosed the unusual nightly activity, no vans matching that description had entered the World Trade Center at such an hour in any of the weeks or months prior to that date. It was a unique event.

Security cameras caught the vans leaving the Towers at approximately 5 a.m—before the first wave of AAA personality types on Wall Street, driving Mercedes and BMWs, arrived to track the markets.
