Ex-CIA Agent Claims She Was Railroaded by Overzealous Detroit Fed Prosecutors and FBI Agents

By David Ashenfelter
Detroit Free Press

DETROIT — Nada Prouty, the former Taylor woman who was drummed out of the CIA, prosecuted and stripped of her U.S. citizenship in 2007 because of a fraudulent marriage, says in a new book that she was railroaded by overzealous prosecutors and FBI agents in Detroit.

“They had no interest in the truth,” Prouty, 41, says in “Uncompromised: The Rise, Fall, and Redemption of an Arab American Patriot in the CIA” (Palgrave Macmillan, 282 pages, $26). She is launching a two-week nationwide tour today to promote the book.

“As a national security worker, I was an easy target,” Prouty said, adding that prosecutors coerced her into pleading guilty, partly by threatening to destroy her husband’s career at the State Department. She said she is a patriot who put her life on the line in the war on terror as an FBI agent and CIA officer.

Prouty pleaded guilty in 2007 to citizenship fraud and accessing an FBI computer without authorization to get information about a Detroit-based national security investigation involving Hizballah, which the U.S. designates as a Lebanese terrorist group.
