OUTRAGE!: Hezbollah Spy Prouty Gets $750 Fine, NO JAIL TIME; Same for Sis-in-Law, but $500 Fine; Schlussel Cited in News Coverage

By Debbie Schlussel
Al’Hamdillullah [Praise Allah]!
It’s a great day in America for those who engage in sham marriages, immigration fraud, and spy on America on behalf of Hezbollah and other Islamic terrorist groups in America.
I hope you are as nauseated as I am that liberal Federal Judge Avern Cohn gave Hezbollah spy Nada Nadim Prouty a/k/a Nada Nadim Al-Aouar Deladurantaye Valley Prouty ZERO jail time and only fined her $750. This woman spied for Hezbollah, accessed records on the investigation of her brother-in-law, Hezbollah financier Talal Chahine, on his behalf, and gets zero jailtime, while Jonathan Pollard rots for life in prison for spying for an ally. A drunk driver does more time than this spy. Not a day in jail. For treason. Outrageous.


Nada Nadim Prouty: Hezbollah’s

Illegal Alien FBI/CIA Agent Gets only $750 Fine, NO Jail-Time

Prouty engaged in a sham marriage to gain U.S. citizenship–that’s immigration fraud, then infiltrated the FBI and CIA (getting top security clearance), improperly accessed federal investigations and disclosed the information to a Hezbo agent–her former bro-in-law, Chahine, and she gets a $750 fine?!
*?*(#$@!!!!!!!!!!!!! [That’s me saying WHAT THE ____?!]
And, as I noted in a New York Post column, her family was intimately involved in the Syrian National Socialist Party, which some say is even worse than Hezbollah. The column was cited in a Kool-Aid brief by Prouty’s lawyers, which this demented federal judge drank.
What’s more, Judge Cohn heaped praise on Prouty. In his “reasoning” for this absurd ad infinitem sentence, Judge Cohn said that Ms. Prouty was getting no jailtime because there was “no evidence” that she shared the info she got on the Hezbollah investigations with her former brother-in-law. Hello . . .? Was she doing this for her health? He secured a kitchen worker from his restaurant to marry her so she could fraudulently obtain U.S. citizenship. And she owed him.
Moreover, Chahine fled the country before he was indicted. I’d say that’s proof that she informed him of the status of the investigation. Any claim that she didn’t share the info is dubious, to say the least.
Cohn also said that Prouty served with distinction in terrorism investigations in Iraq and elsewhere. But, big whoop. Prouty was working on behalf of Shi’ite Hezbollah. The investigations she was involved with were going after Sunni terrorists. This is a Hezbollah/Shi’ite goal, not something for which she was brave or merits plaudits:

A former Detroit-area woman who engaged in a sham marriage to obtain U.S. citizenship and obtained key jobs in the CIA and FBI was fined $750 but given no jail time today by a federal judge.
U.S. District Judge Avern Cohn blasted media coverage of Nada Prouty’s indictment, which he said was fueled by government news releases, and said it distorted the circumstances behind the charges against Prouty. Cohn said Prouty, who lives in suburban Washington, served the United States with distinction in Iraq and elsewhere, at times placing herself in peril on behalf of her adopted country.

Uh, not. See my comments above. Her adopted country is Hezbollahstan, and for that country, she did place herself in peril on its behalf. But NOT for us.
It’s interesting that Ms. Prouty–who is Druze, not Muslim–worked on behalf of Hezbollah over here, while the group is now killing Druze (and Sunnis and Christians) all over Lebanon. They’re suffering, and she wins big. Sickening.


Samar Spinelli, Hezbollah Sham Marriage Artist

Gets $500 Fine, No Jailtime

One other thing, yesterday, the despicable Judge Cohn gave Prouty’s ex-sister-in-law, Samar Spinelli–who also engaged in a sham marriage and immigration fraud, worked for Hezbo financier Talal Chahine, and infiltrated the U.S. Marines–zero jailtime and a $500 fine. And he used the same reasoning:

“She has lost her citizenship and employment, her financial resources have been depleted, and the U.S. Marine Corps has lost the services of a first-rate officer,” Cohn said of Spinelli.

Disgusting. Excuse me while I vomit.
Hey, while they’re at it, why don’t they give Prouty and Spinelli back their jobs in the CIA and Marines.
Or they could have a beauty pageant of immigration defrauding Hezbollah spies allowed to stay in America and keep their citizenship. Thanks to Judge Cohn and our limp government, their ranks are growing to the point where they will soon be able to field one from each State in the Union.
**** UPDATE #1: Some readers are asking me about Judge Avern Cohn, whom I’ve followed for many years, including on this site. And while I’m surprised he issued such an absurd sentence in this case, it isn’t new for him. Like I said, I’ve followed this far-left Jimmy Carter appointeee for some time, and have written about how he’s shown a predilection for helping repatriate to the U.S. deported Muslim illegal aliens who paid off an INS inspector and for Islamic terrorists seeking citizenship.
Still, that doesn’t make his “sentencing” of Prouty and Spinelli any less nauseating and outrageous.
**** UPDATE #2: Detroit News reporter Paul Egan quotes me in his coverage of the sentencing:

Debbie Schlussel, a Southfield attorney and conservative commentator, said she is disgusted by the sentence. “I think it’s pretty clear she misused her position as a federal agent,” Schlussel said of Prouty.

Contrast that and what we know Prouty did with this comment by the DisHonorable Judge Cohn in Egan’s report:

“You have rendered extraordinary services to the United States as an agent of the FBI and an employee of the CIA,” Cohn told Prouty. “At no time did you compromise any investigation from improper behavior or inappropriate conduct.”

Um, hello . . .? The woman accessed classified information on a major terrorism investigation that she was not authorized to access, and it just so happened to involve her bro-in-law. That’s not “improper behavior” and “inappropriate conduct”? That doesn’t “compromise the investigation”?
Those of us in the Detroit area who follow terrorism cases (and other federal cases of similar import) have long known it’s well past time for Judge Cohn to retire, and, sadly, there is no mandatory retirement age for federal judges. Unlike the wise Federal Judge John S. Feikens (also sitting on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan) who is the exception (at age 90, and still churning out very sound decisions), Judge Cohn (at almost 84 years old) is the rule.

What the hell kind of @@@@@@**** CRAP is this! What an absolute outrage! No wonder this country is sinking quickly into the abyss.

wolf2012 on May 13, 2008 at 5:51 pm

Ms. Prouty is just one out of a million of those akin to her working in the CIA & FBI.Blood hell! They just may as well make her chief of the CIA while Jonathan Pollard and Robert Hanson rot in jail.
Only in America can a Hezbollah operative( or a Hezbollah’s bitch in her work for the CIA and be granted clemency and complete exoneration b/c the Judiciary branch is more concerend about her enthic sensibilities than our safety.
Exit question: What has George Bush been doing while all of this was happening?

American Sabrah on May 13, 2008 at 6:03 pm

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO F**KING WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think I’m going to throw up. No, seriously. My stomach is churning. I’m seriously afraid for my country. That our legal system would tolerate this is a profound travesty.

Madame Vengier on May 13, 2008 at 6:30 pm

Jonathan Pollard must die behind bars for spying for a friendly nation but Nada Nadim Prouty walks off with a slap on the wrist for spying on behalf of a known enemy of the United States. The double standard should be enough to sicken every decent person. Some spies are apparently less equal than others and when it comes to double allegiance, its viewed as suspect in Jews but not when its practiced by Muslims. Its a slap in the face to the idea that treason merits severe punishment and its a travesty of American justice.

NormanF on May 13, 2008 at 7:48 pm

Meanwhile two loyal Americans who put their lives on the line daily ROT in an American jail for ELEVEN FREAKIN’ YEARS because they shot a Mexican drug smuggler in the butt.
All because of George Bush’s pal Johnny Sutton.
And if you think it’s intolerable now, wait till President Obama.

Jack Bauer on May 13, 2008 at 8:21 pm

I’m loading the guns as we speak. There’s the .45 all finished… The wife is loading the 12 gauges… kids have their slingshots… good, good…
I’m as outraged as the next guy at this, but we have to get ready for the consequenses. I wondered why the terrorist chatter was up all of a sudden. They’re emboldened.
They’re really going to hit us now. Our elections are now racist and bigoted, the country’s liberals want to fragment, and we’re losing ground to these invaders.
Time to lock and load, boys and girls!!!

bhparkman on May 13, 2008 at 9:29 pm

It’s easy to see why alot of these women cover thier faces.

Ron Taylor on May 13, 2008 at 9:51 pm

God help us all. Our nation’s priorities are in full Alice in Wonderland mode. Up is down and black is white. As John in Cincinnati would say, “The end is near.” The people still have time to take back control of our government and force all three branches of the federal government to adhere to the the Constitution. Democrats and Republicans are equally responsible for the continuing demise of the principles and values upon which this country was founded. The rule of law must be reinstated by we, the people. The voters MUST wake up before it’s too late. PERIOD.

ParaLyzer on May 13, 2008 at 9:51 pm

While I deplore the kid gloves treatment for Ms Prouty, she in no way compares to Jonathan Pollard and the damage he did to US intelligence efforts.
While he gave information to an ally, our ally used his information in a manner that had fatal results to American assets. Israel traded his information as an inducement for the Soviet’s allowing most their Jews to emigrtate to Israel.
The information was specific enough for the Soviets to identify and permanently eliminate our sources. If you don’t believe me, believe this: Louis Freeh (FBI Diector) and George Tenet (CIA Director) both threatened to resign on the spot if Clinton pardoned Pollard in the last days of his administration. Clinton backed off.
The Pollard case is a terrible example of an ally abusing our trust and an agreement not to conduct intelligence operations in the the US. But it continued well after Pollard with the purchase of a telecommunications billing company by an Israeli company that gave them knowledge of virtully every listed and unlisted number in the US. If you recall the taped conversation of Clinton talking with Lewinsky, that he didn’t want to us the White House phone until it was fixed. this referred to the Israeli ability to intercept and directly deliver any conversation directly to Israel via secure (all cable) links they owned.
Please don’t get me wrong, I firmly support the Israels struggle to survive. But there are times when best friends do the wrong thing.

Corky Boyd on May 13, 2008 at 9:57 pm

Even if there were no allegations of spying, this sentence is disgusting. The woman lied to get immigration status, to get a job with intelligence agencies, and to her colleagues and superiors for years. Even IF the judge believed she didn’t send secrets to Hezblow, this sentence is a joke. I’ve seen former agents and police officers strung up with tougher sentences for far less.

Staypositive on May 13, 2008 at 11:53 pm

What a terrible job this country is doing to deter terroists from infiltrating our defenses. A slap on the wrist for these women is a slap in the face for our troops that have lost their lives and for those who died on 9/11. Mistakes like this will lead to another major act of terrorism on U.S. soil. Something terrible is happening in the legal system.

EnigmaticEntropy7 on May 14, 2008 at 12:21 am

I know it looks bad but there is a possibility that she sang like a canary and this is the cover story.
They wrist-slap her, knowing that the conservative blogs will freak out, thereby providing plausible deniability. She gets away but we have her secrets that allow us covert access to enemy networks.
It’s all about being able to stop the next attack just before it is executed without the enemy knowing how we knew.

platypus on May 14, 2008 at 12:27 am

platypus, I given who appointed the judge, Carter, I highly doubt your scenario. But it could be true.
I’m more concerned with the person responsible for hiring her in the first place! What kind of background checks are being used now? A regular Joe would get an anal examine before being hired in that position. She had help at high levels of government, and that is more scary than anything.

you are right on May 14, 2008 at 8:20 am

They should put these people to work for ICE HQ…none of the big shots up there get in deep s**t for collabrating with the enemy. Just ask the ICE Princess…

1shot1kill on May 14, 2008 at 9:11 am

Unbelievable. How is this possible? Judge on the take. Carter appt or not, how about some f’in justice? They will continue to have no fear when tearing this country up from the inside. Obama will condone these sentences if he has a say. After all they are minorities perpetrating these crimes. Cohn should be taken off the bench and charged with TREASON.

samurai on May 14, 2008 at 10:49 am

The allegations that Pollard’s secrets were sold to the Soviets by the Israelis were proven false about, oh, a decade or more ago.
Where have you been?!
The spy who sold the secrets to the Soviets was the alcoholic Catholic Aldrich Ames, who was prosecuted.
So, we have two “spies” doing time for one crime, one who is guilty of actually selling secrets to our enemies, the other for whispering secrets into the ear of an ally.
The info given to Israel by Pollard had already been agreed upon as part of the American-Israeli agreement; Pollard knew that, but his boss refused to share the info.
According to Loftus/Aarons, in “Secret War Against the Jews,” Pollard did not even have clearance at the level of those highly clssified secrets.
John Loftus, a former Federal Prosecutor, whose personal investigation defined the case against al-Arian in Florida, would know.
PLease, before you smear a man’s character, gather the facts.

Efffrem on May 14, 2008 at 11:15 am

To the best of your knowledge, are either of these ladies informing about their handlers and networks?

chsw on May 14, 2008 at 11:23 am

chsw makes a good point, if these “ladies” are talking to the feds, then the judge might have an excuse for what is otherwise a miscarriage of justice. what i don’t understand is how americans fail to see the contempt and hatred which the islamofascists hold for our country, and continue to give them the benefit of the doubt- when there is no doubt, they are bent on jihad, the violent (or otherwise)overthrow of western democracy…

tc on May 14, 2008 at 12:43 pm

Ron Taylor 9:51pm………….LOL!!!!!! Talk about fugly?????

Winebabe on May 14, 2008 at 5:01 pm

Being your typical American, I have a difficult time following all of these characters. Some of their names are hard to pronounce, much less remember. Could you possibly write a book laying all of this out chronologically, year by year? Organizational charts similar to those used to show Mafia connections would make this easier to understand and recall. The same goes for the FBI.
Thank you.

In the history of mankind there are (basically) three (3) ways in which a Country reaches it’s “demise”.
The first way is by war. Plain and simple (used to be). You Country fights, you lose, and the winner takes over. This is “understood” by any/all.
The second way is by having your currency, and assets, “owned” by a Foreign Nation/Goverment. Eventually the “payment is due” and civilizations/Nations “change hands”. Slightly less “dramatic” as war…but equally as effective.
The third, and final way – and also the MOST painful, is by “self-inflication”. A PERFECT example is the recent ruling by this “Judge Cohn”. Facts appear to be irrevelant to this “Judge”. The security of our Nation appears to be irrevelant to this Judge. Common sense escapes this Judge. These ADVOCATE Judges are willing to jeopardize our safety/lives/security, and that of our childen and future generations, due to their “extreme liberalism/pacificism”. How DARE they let this “person” go free. I hope, and pray, that this “decision” is appealed and then reversed on appeal. Otherwise the “self-inflication” will occur more often…and be more painful to us all. Nuff said. Jeff Schrembs (aka: Nostradamus).

Nostradamus on May 14, 2008 at 10:04 pm

In 2003, Prouty resigned her position with the FBI and began working for the CIA ? where U.S. citizenship is also a prerequisite for employment. Prouty is facing more than 15 years in prison and $600,000 in fines for her crimes. The maximum penalty for Prouty’s crimes include over 15 years in prison and $600,000 in fines, but her plea deal includes sentencing guidelines recommending between a 6 and 12 months in prison and automatic loss of citizenship.
I disagree with the judge, but when the government makes a deal for 6 to 12 months confinement, how can you blame him for doing nothing?

Tony D on May 15, 2008 at 1:00 pm

“bhparkman” is correct — eventually patriotic American citizens are going to start “taking the law into their own hands” and impose justice on the Muslim traitors, terrorists, and sharia-promoters who live in our midst. If the government refuses to protect us from these people — which is the first object of any legitimate government — then we will have to protect ourselves.
The powers-that-be may think they are “keeping the peace” by going easy on Muslims, but they are only allowing pressure to build in this country until the reaction is going to be even more violent and disorderly. Americans are not saps and pussies like Europeans. We won’t stand for much more of this.

RepublicanPatriot on May 15, 2008 at 7:40 pm

I am in the military and both of these women are known to me. The sham citizenship was wrong, no doubt about that. But both of them put their life on the line in a way that most Americans have not, and probably would not. Now because of slanted reporting and blogs like this, they have become objects of ridicule. There is no evidence that either one was a spy, or we they would have never been offered a plea agreement to lesser charges. (Reread the last sentence if you are still not getting it.) If you are convinced that they are spies, then your anger should also be directed to the ADA and the FBI for not bringing them to justice.

Judge Avern Cohn is a rotten piece of stinking dog crap. He assisted in attempting to end my career and when he dies, I’ll dance and spit on his grave.
