Susan Lindauer’s 5-year Patriot Act Nightmare; Will Durst on Reagan’s 100th

Susan Lindauer was a US intel asset who asserts she got wind of the impending 9/11 attacks in the summer of 2001, and was jailed under the Patriot Act to keep her quiet. In this detailed interview, Lindauer describes her bizarre 5-year ordeal. Will Durst offers comments on Reagan’s 100th birthday, Lindauer’s new book is Extreme Prejudice: The Terrifying Story of the Patriot Act and the Cover-ups of 9/11 and Iraq and she establishes her credentials as a peace activist who opposed the 1990’s sanctions on Iraq while serving as a back channel to Iraqi contacts before the 2003 US invasion. She worked with her CIA handler on the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the Oklahoma City bombing, the Lockerbie investigation and the Cole investigation, but was cut out “with exteme prejudice” when she sought to tell the truth to Congress. After contacting Sen. McCain’s office, she was arrested by the FBI and her public defender appeared to collude repeatedly with the prosecution. She was falsely described as suicidal and delusional, sent to Carswell AFB in Texas for a psych evaluation that lasted 7 months, then held for another 4 months in NYC–all under the control of Judge Michael Mukasey, who was Bush’s last Attorney General. PBC can’t believe how generous she is to Mukasey and her first attorney, and pushes Lindauer to the point he suspects she suffers from Stockholm syndrome. At 1:14:53, Will Durst joins us to unravel some of the revisionist history of Ronald Reagan.
