The Spy Who Loved Saddam
No, no...Peter Arnett is not under arrest for espionage. But Susan Lindauer is! Uncle Sam arrested her yesterday on charges that she spied for Saddam from 1999 through 2002.
According to the AP, a federal grand jury indictment charges that Lindauer "accepted $10,000 for working for the Iraqi Intelligence Service from 1999 to 2002, including payments for lodging at the Al-Rashid Hotel in Baghdad and expenses during meetings in New York City with Iraqi agents." The Feds mantain that Lindauer was being paid to influence her distant cousin, White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card, in matters involving Saddam. She denies the charge of course, though Card reportedly confirmed to the FBI that his Mata Hari of a cousin did try to contact him several times.
Considering the course of events over the last 12 months, Saddam should demand a refund.
Lindauer, a former journalist, has served as the press secretary for four members of Congress.
Not surprisingly, all four members -- Rep. Zoe Lofgren, Rep. Peter DeFazio, Sen. Carol Moseley Braun, and then Rep. Ron Wyden -- are Democrats.
