Jon Elmer in the first half.

And; Susan Lindauer was an American intelligence asset from 1996 right up until the day “that changed everything.” In the days and weeks following 9/11, she witnessed her government and the press excoriate the “intelligence community” for its failure to protect the homeland, and ridicule hers and her colleague’s service to the nation.

Outraged, she demanded her side of the story be told, applying to be included in Congressional Hearings, only to find herself to be the first non-Arab American arrested and imprisoned under the newly-enacted PATRIOT Act. Susan Lindauer is out now, and as determined as ever that her story be told. She is the author of the book, ‘Extreme Prejudice: The Terrifying Story of the Patriot Act and the Cover Ups of 9/11 and Iraq.’
