**** Make Sure you read “Debunking Nada Prouty’s and “60 Minutes'” Lies & Propaganda,” First ***
Ever since her revisionist media blitz began Sunday Night on CBS News’ “60 Minutes,” Hezbollah Spy Nada Nadim Prouty (a convicted felon) and her new lawyer, Mark Zaid, have been hinting in all sorts of places that they’re going to sue me or try to have me blackballed for calling Prouty what she admitted to in writing in Federal Court: that she’s a Hezbollah spy and that she accessed FBI computers on several occasions, examining Hezbollah investigations (to which she was not assigned), for the purpose of informing her brother-in-law, Talal Chahine, who was–at the time–the terrorist group’s third biggest financier after Iran and Syria. She admitted in her plea that she conspired with Chahine, an agent of Hezbollah.
(Oh, and by the way, Zaid’s/Prouty’s/60 Minutes’ only argument in Prouty’s favor–that she was “cleared by the CIA” makes no difference. She didn’t access their databases for Hezbollah. She accessed the FBI’s, and that agency DID NOT clear her.)
Zaid told the Detroit Free Press:
Zaid said he is preparing to sue bloggers and news media outlets who that persist in calling Prouty a Hizballah spy and is contacting members of Congress and the Obama administration in hopes of restoring her citizenship or permanent resident status.
I’m also told that on his FaceBook page, Zaid is threatening to contact the New York Post to try to have my columns blackballed because of my NYPost column on Prouty (which was and remains ironclad factually). (Become my FaceBook friend.)
But I’m not worried in the least about his empty threats. I won’t cower. It’s not just because everything I’ve ever written is based on facts, written documents, witnesses, and reliable sources. It’s not just because, despite many empty and baseless threats, I’ve never once been sued for defamation and have never been forced to retract a single thing I’ve written. It’s not just because everything I wrote about Prouty is true, and that she did spy for Hezbollah. And it’s not just because I and my lawyers would have a field day with Zaid and Prouty, in addition to filing a counter-suit.
It’s because–despite what she told “60 Minutes” and what “60 Minutes” told you–Nada Nadim Prouty signed a written plea agreement admitting she accessed FBI databases, unauthorized, to look up info on Hezbollah investigations. Believe me, I’d love to show this to a jury with Ms. Prouty on the stand and see what they think:
Sorry, Mr. Zaid, but you and I both know that your client didn’t just illegally access Hezbollah investigations on the FBI computer–when her bro-in-law with whom she admittedly conspired, was one of Hezbollah’s top financiers and agents in the world–for the heck of it. It’s quite obvious to anyone with a brain that she was spying for Hezbollah. Period.
Yes, Nada Prouty was a Hezbollah spy. And I’m not going to stop saying so, merely because some lawyer dispenses threats more often than he changes underpants. She spied. She spied. She spied. It makes no difference whether she was specifically charged with it or pleaded to it, she basically admitted to it in her plea agreement. This isn’t about semantics of counts in an indictment. It’s about the details of her actions . . . details she swore to in federal court.
Prouty should be thanking her lucky stars that she breathes free on U.S. soil, despite committing immigration fraud, continuing to be an illegal alien, spying on her country for an Islamic terrorist group, etc.
Meanwhile, Jonathan Pollard, who spied for an ally, continues to serve a life sentence and rot in prison.
That’s “justice,” American style. And you wonder why the Islamic world continues to laugh at us.
