Getting Sold Out

In case anyone has missed it, it seems there was a mole in the CIA, and earlier for the FBI, for Hezbollah.

How the heck could Nada Nadim Prouty even get a security clearance? A letter to INS written by her brother-in-law, who is a Hezbollah supporter, should have been an automatic down check on any kind of security clearance.

"It looks more like she was concerned about her brother-in-law being involved in Hezbollah and was legitimately worried about her sister," Cannistraro said.
The above is a deliberate attempt to downplay how grievous a breach in security this woman was. She was poking around in classified databases. Like Kim Philby, she could have found some CIA agents or contacts who were close to Hezbollah or other terrorist organizations, pass those names to her brother-in-law, who would then make arrangements, and suddenly those agents or contacts vanish to be never seen again this side of the Pearly Gates. She could be a female Aldridge Aimes but only if the CIA seriously looks into what information she had access to. Considering how the CIA stonewalled and played subversive hardball over Valerie Plame, I have no faith that the CIA will look into it.

Democrats will be wary to bring it into the spotlight because she joined the FBI during the Clinton Administration and then the CIA while Clinton appointee George Tenet still minded the store for President George Bush. Same possibly goes for the White House, but I hope I am wrong. I hope the Department of Justice under Murkasy sinks its teeth into this to find out exactly how much damage this woman did to US national security.
