Journalist - Spy or No?
UPDATE 7:36 The Smoking Gun
has the indictment papers.

The case before us ladies and gentleman is one of bias over bombs. One of tabloid trust losing out against traitorist terrorism.
(AP)NEW YORK (AP) - A former journalist and one-time press secretary for four members of Congress was arrested Thursday on charges she served as a paid agent for the Iraqi intelligence service before and after the U.S. invasion.

Susan Lindauer, 41, was arrested in her hometown of Takoma Park, Md., and was to appear in court later in the day in Baltimore, authorities in New York said.

She was accused of conspiring to act as a spy for the Iraqi Intelligence Service and engaging in prohibited financial transactions involving the government of Iraq under dictator Saddam Hussein. Prosecutors say she accepted $10,000 for her work.

"I'm an anti-war activist and I'm innocent," Lindauer told WBAL-TV as she was led to a car outside the Baltimore FBI office. "I did more to stop terrorism in this country than anybody else. I have done good things for this country. I worked to get weapons inspectors back to Iraq when everyone else said it was impossible. I'm very proud and I'll stand by my achievements."

Lindauer worked at Fortune, U.S. News & World Report and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer before beginning her career as a political publicist.

So they are all terrorist tear-sheets. Add to that list Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., Rep. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., Illinois Sen. Carol Moseley Braun as press secretary in 1996, and Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif. in 2002. Braun's current spokesperson, Loretta Kane, said the former senator does not remember Lindauer. (Bitch, please --- humor)

Guilt by association? Well let's watch and see how this all pans out. There will be those who say it can't be coincidence, that working for Democrats and being a journalist fosters terrorism. (Hint, I'm not a terrorist)

The assumption that she's guilty goes without saying.

The nitty-gritty here.
