The Documents Don’t Lie: The Hezbollah Spy’s Lawyer v. Me

By Debbie Schlussel

**** 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.

I read somewhere that Bill Clinton had tried to release Pollard but a bunch of Reaganites (like Donald Rumsfeld and Cheney) made a big stink and stopped Clinton. Any truth to that?

Norman Blitzer on March 30, 2010 at 6:00 pm

    Norman, I’m quite sure that Clinton would have pardoned Pollard, if some benefactor had deposited a nice sum into Clinton’s foundation.

    dougx on March 31, 2010 at 11:26 pm

This guy is clearly incompetent — after all, doesn’t he realize that a guilty plea is an admission of the facts contained in the charge?

Rhymes With Right on March 30, 2010 at 6:01 pm

As you have said Debbie, the chutzpah, yeesh these people. Armed with the facts and the truth is a good place to be.

jake49 on March 30, 2010 at 6:27 pm

She should have been tried for treason and shot. Where can we find The Abu Abed Hit Squad and let them pull a rendition job on this terrorist? She’s gotta have intel that could be used in killing more of her terrorist buddies.

Jarhead on March 30, 2010 at 7:33 pm

Debbie, that’s what I love … the details… Keep going.. Be safe PK

Apophis on March 30, 2010 at 9:10 pm

Back to her muslim friends to what ever islamic hellhole she came from.

Don’t worry, the CIA will give her a job.

Jennifer on March 30, 2010 at 9:59 pm

Gee…where are the TROLLS who peruse this site?Hmmmmm

ebayer on March 30, 2010 at 10:34 pm

But, but, but, but….Prouty seems to have an answer for everything. Prouty, meet Kwame…

Larry on March 30, 2010 at 10:42 pm

Once again folks….you can see for yourselves… Debbie has more credibility than 60 Minutes or any MSM talking head or reporterette you will hear or read.

An innocent person does not sign a guilty plea with this detailed info because of inconvenience (as Prouty tried to BS us with on 60 Minutes). No the reality is she did what she says she did in the plea…she spied.

Debbie told you so and gives you the proof. Who wants Debbie and who wants Hannity in this expose she just did on Freedom Scam CONcerts–
North, Ward, Levin et al?

BB on March 30, 2010 at 10:48 pm

Dumb idiot ! She admitted to that to save her family the lawyer’s fees. How does it feel to be so hateful ?

Carlos on March 30, 2010 at 10:57 pm

The US govt., what a joke, they routinely allow millions of Mexicans to camp here but hound this woman to the end of time over her immigration status.

Debbie, I didn’t read anything about spying in the plea agreement. Mostly she committed technical infractions in an effort to live in the USA. Remember, she did not have the luxury of hopping the fence on the southern border. I understand your inferences, but in order to label someone a spy, you need some evidence that she passed some information or something of value to her alleged fellow agents.

Assuming she debriefed the investigators assigned to this case, what was their analysis of her truthfullness? Normally if they deem that you lied during the debriefing, it can kill the agreement. Sure would like to know what the debriefing consisted of.

dougx on March 31, 2010 at 12:58 am

wow, some people are just stupid in their denial of actually reading the facts right in front of them.

Great work Debbie.

ender on March 31, 2010 at 2:10 am

If you are going to plead guilty to a felony you should know what you are pleading guilty to be reading it before signing it. It would be interesting to see Ms. Prouty sue someone for defamation. That way a deposition and investigation would fully disclose what she was up to during her time in the FBI & CIA. Just saying…

Off topic, but you are credited in this article… Not a bad read either, regardless where anyone falls on the subject.

sharon on March 31, 2010 at 10:22 am

    Wow, great article. Someone finally said it with a clear and concise message with verifiable facts to back up her claims. Nice read.

Hit submit too quickly. Sited in regard to your investigation on the selective service registration of the won.

    Sorry Sharon, that was not directed at you.

Blah Blah Blah. It would take far to long to dissiminate your diatribe above, but in the most simpilist terms, you are a moron at best.

sounds like alot of hot air……….but they may waste some of your time
and the main goal is to intimidate future media

debbie will prevail

This gal, along with her stupid lawyer, should be deported. Don’t worry…some people do not have the brains to absorb facts. What a mess we are in…..

    No, have her serve POLLARD’S sentence including the first few years, no ESPECIALLY the first and WORST years of his sentence, and then let Jonathan Pollard have what she has now-FREEDOM! LIBERATE JONATHAN POLLARD

I updated her wikipedia page:


Keith on March 31, 2010 at 1:50 pm

While I do believe this POS deserves a just reward in line with islam–burning in hell with her false prophet…I do have to say that the plea agreement NEVER mentions a conspiracy to pass information on…she pled guilty to ACCESSING the information contrary to policy, etc. If you want to infer she passed that information on, you are free to do so but only under the guise of speculation. The only conspiracy she pled to was immigration fraud…not in accessing information.

Sean on March 31, 2010 at 1:50 pm

Well done Debbie. However…

It seems you’ve been on a great run lately. Those scam concert articles (vanity and the grammy winner) and a whole bunch of other great reads. The problem is your credibility. You could be a wonderful leader of “the good fight” but you insist on calling people names like stupid, idiot and liar. I know you are passionate about your causes but I believe it would better serve your goals if you would tone down the over the top rhetoric (it has the outward appearance that you just do it for web site hits); frankly it destroys your credibility. Anyone reading this article with an opposing view can easily discredit you by citing juvenile name calling and some of the more “fluff” articles. (For example, I recall a scathing screed about a hall of fame baseball players inability to speak English properly. Or the article talking about “real men” not wearing pink.) Maybe those “less substantial” articles could be posted on a sister-site?

Great job on this article.

Joe Schmo on March 31, 2010 at 1:51 pm

Gotta applaud DS – I wouldn’t have the guts to call out so many unsavory creeps in a public forum, using my real name. She must have to maintain acute alertness every time she travels from one place to another.

Graty Slapchop on March 31, 2010 at 5:03 pm

Scott, she put up the link to the plea agreement for you to read. She merely pasted the parts that support her contention, which is perfectly reasonable. Some of it is pretty dry and not worth pasting into her post.

dougx on March 31, 2010 at 6:44 pm

    Hey dougx, don’t know if you were referring to my post…it is Sean, not Scott…but I did read the entire document and the sum total of the facts pled to are what is included in what Debbie posted.

    My only argument with what Debbie posted..and I believe her inferences are spot on…is that this POS did not plead to a conspiracy to spy or pass on information, she only pled to accessing that information contrary to her employment, etc. Right or wrong, it is what she is guilty of. I do not the believe the AUSA in this matter would have made such a grievous error to not include that little nugget of info in the factual recitation.

    Again, I think she spied, I think Debbie is right, and she will get exactly what is coming to her. That being said, a person reading that plea agreement can not say with absolute certainty that this POS conspired to spy and pass on info. That is not in the scope of the agreement.

    Sean on April 4, 2010 at 7:52 pm

“Life Rule #10: If you’re innocent, never plead guilty”

Sounds great when you have money little girl. Well, welcome to the real world where people plead guilty all the time since they have no resources to fight prosecutors with no monetary limits.

Carlos on March 31, 2010 at 9:20 pm

So her family raised $21 million for terrorists but she didn’t have enough for a lawyer then, but she has enough for a lawyer now. Guilty is as guilty does.

ender on March 31, 2010 at 10:06 pm

    She should be Happy she didn’t get a HIBEY, and not a Palestinian terrorist Hibey, a Jonathan Pollard, Hibey! Yes I’m insulting Richard Hibey, the guy who screwed Pollard over then years later defended some TERRORISTS well!

    Robyn on August 30, 2015 at 4:56 pm


You can source your claim that some of the intel Pollard sold was given to the Soviets via Israel, right? Being one of the “serious people who follow terrorism and security issues” you should be able to document the discovery that the Soviets had Pollard leaked intel. Unless, you get your information from Wikipedia as I suspect? If you are going to pose, at least try to make it look convincing. Grenier is a man that you hold “very high regard for”?…uh huh. You probably first heard his name in this article.

Would you also qualify, just for educational purposes for the yammering pundits here, what Israel’s intentions were “against” the American military and intelligence community. From the way you word the statement, it sounds as if you feel Israel was destroying the ability of our nation to gather data agency by agency. Is this part of that conspiracy your sort likes to mutter about, where Jews are controlling world governments like marionettes? Thought so.

Michael LeFavour on March 31, 2010 at 10:24 pm

If she accessed secrets and passed or intended to pass them that sounds like spying to me. Whats more, spying is a term of art, it has no legal meaning. You don’t get charged with “spying” If you had said she had been charged with actual crimes she had not been charged with that might be a different story but for to claim the underlying facts add up to spying is a matter of opinion. For Zaid to claim it adds up to defamation is ridiculous. Sounds like a play out of the Gloria Allred threat manual

Brian Cuban on April 1, 2010 at 7:26 am

In support of Debbie, I suggest we all write something like I have below. I am even putting my real name on this. I will be more than happy to write this in other places. Let Prouty and her lawyer come after all of us:

Nada Prouty was a Hezbollah spy

David Makowsky on April 1, 2010 at 9:40 am

debbie………..i enjoy your site and always always learn someting each time i log on and read… do not back down…i saw her on 60min and cbs (both scum bags) and heard and saw exactly what was not back down..she is guilty as the devil…..jmc

pink bunny on April 2, 2010 at 6:56 am


Great stuff. Only issue is that in the U.S.A. it no longer matters if a person is guilt or innocent. What matters is the media presentation and whether you can gain the sympathy of the zombies who’s emotions control their lives. There is, unfortunately, hundreds of millions of people who live their daily lives based on what feels good, what feels right, and what my friends will think. That is the legacy of socialized education, vidiots, and the wonderful entitlement system we’ve allowed right under our noses for decades.

Americans are no longer principled. Everything is negotiable when you are no longer judging yourself against a fixed standard…a moral absolute.
