Traitor Muslim Secret Service Agent
FBI translator married ISIS terrorist she was supposed to investigate

An FBI translator who was assigned to investigate a bloodthirsty ISIS
terrorist wound up falling head-over-heels in love with the man — and
married him instead, a report says.
Daniela Greene, 38, was apparently so lovestruck by the German-born
jihadist that she left her husband in the US to be with him in war-torn
Syria, and then lied to the feds about her whereabouts, according to
Denis Cuspert — a wannabe rapper-turned-ISIS pitchman — reportedly
became the apple of her eye sometime in 2014, despite having a
notorious penchant for violence.
He has been spotted showing off the terror group’s savagery in
countless execution videos, some of which show him holding severed
heads, CNN reports.
Roughly three years after joining the FBI as a linguist, Greene was
assigned to the Detroit bureau in January 2014 and asked to probe
By June, she was already smitten with the tatted-up terrorist and
making plans to be with him in the Middle East. They reportedly tied
the knot in Syria sometime that month.
Greene eventually got cold feet, though, and decided to come back to
the US in August 2014. She was immediately arrested upon her return.
According to CNN, Greene had been emailing an unidentified person back
home about having second thoughts about her decision to pack up and
leave soon after she got hitched.
“I was weak and didn’t know how to handle anything anymore,” she wrote
in one message on July 8. “I really made a mess of things this time.”
Following her arrest, Greene agreed to cooperate with authorities. She
pleaded guilty to making false statements involving international
terrorism in December 2014 and was released from prison in August 2016
after serving a surprising two-year sentence.
Some have argued that Greene — who now works as a hostess in a hotel
lounge — got off easy, compared to other Americans who’ve been
prosecuted for ISIS-related crimes.
A Fordham University study from 2016 found that such people typically receive an average of 13½ years in prison.
While Greene’s conduct was described in court papers as skirting “a
line dangerously close to other more serious charges,” Assistant US
Attorney Thomas Gillice insisted that she receive a lighter sentence
because of her cooperation.
But even Greene thought she’d be punished more severely.
“I will probably go to prison for a long time if I come back, but that
is life,” she wrote in an email on July 22. “I wish I could turn back
time some days.”
Greene reportedly told the FBI she was visiting loved ones in Munich, Germany, when she fled to Syria to be with Cuspert.
“Want to see my family,” she wrote in her Report of Foreign Travel
form, before boarding an international flight on June 23, 2014.
But instead of visiting her relatives, Greene flew to Istanbul, Turkey,
and then to the city of Gaziantep, just 20 miles from the Syrian
border. From there, she met up with Cuspert and crossed into the
country using the assistance of a third party, CNN reports.
In a statement, the FBI said it had taken “several steps in a variety
of areas to identify and reduce security vulnerabilities” like the ones
seen in Greene’s case.
“It’s a stunning embarrassment for the FBI, no doubt about it,” John Kirby, a former State Department official, told CNN.
Greene, who was born in Czechoslovakia and raised in Germany, had been married to a former US soldier before she fled to Syria.
She reportedly moved to the United states with him when she was younger
and later attended Cameron University in Oklahoma, making the dean’s
list along the way.
After earning a master’s degree in history from Clemson, she made her
way to the FBI and eventually gained her top-secret national security
“I could see she was a really hard worker,” explained Clemson Professor
Alan Grubb. “She was one of our better graduate students, I thought.”
Greene had been acting “in an investigative capacity” when she fell in love with Cuspert, CNN reports.
Court documents obtained by the outlet describe how she got acquainted
with his online presence and rap persona — watching several of his
graphic ISIS videos and following his accounts — in order to get a
better understanding of who he was.
In one clip from July 2014, Cuspert can be seen “beating a corpse with
a sandal” following the “bloody aftermath of the ISIS takeover of the
Al-Sha’er gas fields in Homs,” according to a Middle East Media
Research Institute report.
The ISIS savage, known as Abu Talha al-Almani in Syria, is infamous in Germany for his terror-related rap songs.
Performing under the name “Deso Dogg,” Cuspert once praised Osama bin
Laden and rhymed about killing then-President Barack Obama.
Pentagon officials released a statement in October 2015 saying Cuspert
had been killed in an airstrike, but later corrected the report and
said he had survived.
Greene’s case is just now being reported after it was sealed by the Justice Department.
It wasn’t unsealed until after she was done cooperating with authorities, CNN reports.
“She was just a well-meaning person that got up in something way over
her head,” said her lawyer, former assistant federal public defender
Possible mole in security detail of Dutch frontrunner Wilders
February 22, 2017
A Dutch secret service agent who was part of the team responsible for
protecting Geert Wilders, the frontrunner in next month's election, has
been suspended on suspicion of leaking details to a criminal
organization, the secret service said on Wednesday.
Wilders, who campaigns on an anti-Islam platform that includes closing
mosques and banning immigration from Muslim countries that has led to
the protection, condemned the alleged breach, saying he cannot function
without adequate security.
Dutch newspapers De Telegraaf and NRC Handelsblad and the country's
national broadcaster NOS identified the suspect as an experienced
officer in his mid-30s, using his first name and last initial.
Secret Service chief Erik Akerboom said he could not confirm the man's
identity but confirmed media reports he has a "Moroccan background".
Akerboom told Business News Radio that "as far as we know" Wilders' safety had not been jeopardized.
Wilders has frequently railed against rogue elements within the
Netherlands' Moroccan community and pledged to crack down on "Moroccan
scum" who he said were making the streets unsafe as he launched his
campaign on Saturday for the March 15 vote.
The agent who was suspended was one of a team tasked with prescreening
locations where Wilders is scheduled to make public appearances. He was
not a member of Wilders' physical protection team, Akerboom said.
"My heavens" Wilders tweeted. "If I cannot blindly trust the service that's supposed to protect me, then I cannot function."
Prime Minister Mark Rutte met Wilders, his chief opponent in the vote, to discuss the suspension.
The ANP News agency reported that Rutte declined comment after emerging
from the meeting with Wilders and Justice Minister Stef Blok.
"I can say nothing about these kinds of conversations," Rutte said,
repeating his standard response to questions on security measures.
Other Dutch politicians reacted with concern, including Wilders' most
vocal critic, Alexander Pechtold of the centrist D66 Party.
"These are very alarming initial reports, and they must be terrible for
Wilders to hear," he said in a tweet. "We must not be naive. More
clarification quickly, please."
German intelligence officer 'arrested over Islamist plot' raising fears the spy agency has been infiltrated
By: Barney Henderson
29 NOVEMBER 2016
A German intelligence officer has reportedly been arrested over a
suspected Islamist plot to bomb the agency's headquarters in Cologne.
The 51-year-old official was said to have made a "partial confession" to the plot, according to Der Spiegel.
The suspect attempted to pass on "sensitive information about the BfV
(Germany's domestic security agency), which could lead to a threat to
the office", an official told the newspaper.
"He is accused of making Islamist remarks online under a false name,
and offering internal information during chats," a BfV spokesman said.
The BfV said the man "behaved inconspicuously" prior to his arrest. He
had, since April, been engaged in gathering intelligence on Islamist
extremists in Germany, Der Spiegel said.
Online chats were apparently found between the suspect and other
Islamists in which he attempted to recruit them to the intelligence
agency to mount an attack on "non-believers", carrying out a bomb
attack on the spy HQ "in the name of Allah".
He used several different names online and his activities were uncovered about a month ago.
The man's family reportedly knew nothing of his conversion to Islam two years ago and subsequent radicalisation.
The suspect was thought to have pledged allegiance to Mohamed Mahmoud,
the Austrian leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant
Germany is on high alert following several terror attacks over the summer.
The BfV estimates there are about 40,000 Islamists in Germany,
including 9,200 ultra-conservative Islamists known as Salafists,
Hans-Georg Maassen, who leads the agency, told Reuters in an interview
earlier this month.
"We remain a target of Islamic terrorism and we have to assume that
Islamic State or other terrorist organisations will carry out an attack
in Germany if they can," he said at the time.
Isil claimed two attacks in late July - on a train near Wuerzburg and
on a music festival in Ansbach - in which asylum-seekers wounded 20
people in total.
In addition, security forces had to respond to an attack in a shopping
centre in the city of Munich in which nine people were killed by an
18-year-old German-Iranian who had been in psychiatric treatment and
was obsessed with mass killings.
Ex-agent with Hezbollah links
pleads guilty to security breaches
Josh Meyer; Los Angeles Times
November 13th, 2007
WASHINGTON — An illegal
immigrant from Lebanon with ties to the militant Islamic group Hezbollah lied
her way through background checks to become an agent for both the FBI and CIA,
and then used her position to obtain information about her relatives and a U.S.
investigation into the group, authorities said Tuesday.
Nada Nadim Prouty, 37,
pleaded guilty to conspiracy, unauthorized computer access and naturalization
fraud in federal court in Detroit and agreed to cooperate with authorities in an
investigation into the security breaches.
Prouty’s case is a major
embarrassment for the FBI and CIA, which supposedly had tightened their
screening and monitoring of personnel after CIA officer Aldrich Ames and FBI
Special Agent Robert Hanssen were caught selling secrets to foreign governments.
But officials stressed that the investigation has not uncovered any evidence
that Prouty gave Hezbollah or its operatives classified information.
Law enforcement officials
said a multi-agency probe is underway to determine how the breaches occurred and
what Prouty might have done with the information she accessed from FBI computers
and whether she obtained information from the CIA.
“It is hard to imagine a
greater threat than the situation where a foreign national uses fraud to attain
citizenship and then, based on that fraud insinuates herself into a sensitive
position in the U.S. government,” U.S. Attorney Stephen J. Murphy in Detroit
said in a statement.
In her signed plea
agreement, Prouty admitted to accessing FBI computer files on Hezbollah first in
2000 and again in 2003, when she accessed case files into a top-secret national
security investigation into the militant group that was being conducted by the
At the time, Prouty’s
brother-in-law was a suspected Hezbollah operative who owned a Detroit
restaurant where Prouty had worked as a waitress and was suspected of having
strong ties to senior Hezbollah officials in Lebanon, the group’s headquarters.
Prouty also was accused of
improperly taking classified information home with her while at the FBI and of
working with other Lebanese nationals in what appeared to be a conspiracy to
gain U.S. citizenship through fraudulent marriages and then to obtain government
law enforcement, intelligence and military jobs with security clearances.
The investigation is being
conducted by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and
Customs Enforcement bureau, with assistance from the State Department’s
Diplomatic Security Service and the Internal Revenue Service, officials said.
ICE spokeswoman Kelly Nantel said it was too early to say what kind of security
breaches might have been involved.
Prouty faces a maximum
penalty of 16 years in prison and $600,000 in fines, and loss of her U.S.
citizenship. But under the terms of the plea deal, she faces only six to 12
months if she cooperates fully.
Willie T. Hulon, executive
assistant director of the FBI’s National Security Branch, said the bureau became
aware of Prouty’s activities in December 2005 and moved to address any further
damage. “We continue to evaluate our security practices and will make any
necessary changes,” Hulon said in a statement.
A spokesman for the CIA,
Paul Gimigliano, said the CIA was cooperating with the investigation. “The
naturalization issue occurred well before she was hired by the bureau” and 13
years before she joined the CIA, he said.
Attempts to reach a lawyer
for Prouty, Thomas W. Cranmer, were unsuccessful. A relative of Prouty, reach by
phone from California, said Tuesday night that she could not discuss the case or
anything about the CIA officer.
To join the FBI and CIA,
Prouty had to be a U.S. citizen and undergo a background check. Officials at
both agencies insisted that thorough background checks were done. FBI spokesman
Stephen Kodak said agents interviewed family, friends and associates in the
United States and Lebanon to make sure Prouty did not pose a security risk, and
that Prouty passed a lie detector test.
“We relied on her legitimate
naturalization documents. What the investigation revealed was that those
naturalization papers were obtained through a long-term pattern of fraudulent
claims,” Kodak said. “Do additional measures need to be implemented? Possibly.”
Prouty, who goes by several
other names, was described in court papers as a resident of Vienna, Va., who
resigned from the CIA in recent weeks as part of the plea agreement.
The U.S. government has
designated Hezbollah, also known as the “Party of God,” as a global terrorist
organization. The Shiite group also has financial ties and other links to Iran.
Hezbollah also has had a significant fundraising presence in the United States,
particularly within large Middle Eastern enclaves in cities such as Detroit and
Prouty came to one of those
enclaves in Michigan in 1989 on a one-year, non-immigrant student visa. After
overstaying her visa, she obtained a fraudulent marriage in 1990 by paying an
unemployed U.S. citizen in Detroit to marry her, court records state.
From there, Prouty forged
her way into obtaining U.S. citizenship and worked as a waitress and hostess at
a Middle Eastern restaurant chain called La Shish Inc. that was owned by a
suspected Hezbollah operative named Talal Khalil Chahine. Chahine even wrote a
letter for submission into Prouty’s immigration file attesting to the validity
of Prouty’s false marriage, the court papers said.
In 1999, Prouty was hired by
the FBI as a sworn agent and sent to its Washington, D.C., field office, where
she worked on a squad that investigates crimes against citizens working
overseas. She was not assigned to work on investigations involving Hezbollah.
The next year, Prouty’s
sister, Elfat El Aouar, married Chahine. And less than a month later, Prouty
accessed the FBI case management system, “without authorization, and beyond her
authorized access,” to query her own name and that of her sister and Chahine.
She also began taking “an unknown quantity” of classified information home with
her, against FBI policy, court records state.
In August 2002, Prouty’s
sister and Chahine attended a fundraising event in Lebanon where the keynote
speakers were Hezbollah leader Sheik Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah and Chahine
himself, who authorities said was suspected of being a senior member of the
The next summer, Prouty
illegally accessed the FBI computers again. This time, she accessed the bureau’s
Automated Case System to obtain information about a national security
investigation into Hezbollah that was being conducted by the FBI’s Detroit Field
Office, court records showed.
Later that year, Prouty
joined the CIA and remained there until earlier this month.

Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and
being an AMERICAN in 1907
“In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in
good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be
treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to
discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin.
But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American,
and nothing but an American... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man
who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all.
We have room for but one flag, the American flag.... We have room for but one
language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one
sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
