Susan Lindauer, the former Seattle journalist for Hearst’s paper in the cold, foggy city on the Left Coast, arrested by the FBI for acting as an unregistered agent for the Saddam Hussein government, will get a new day in court next week, where she hopes to show she wasn’t an agent, nor crazy. The June 17 mental competency hearing will be held in New York federal court for the onetime P-I reporter. Her own lawyers claimed she was mentally ill.
Lindauer said she was actually working on behalf of the U.S. when she contacted the Iraqis — a defense that federal prosecutors used to have her committed to a federal mental facility in Texas for evaluation. She was later released by U.S. judge Michael Mukasey, now the attorney general. Lindauer has just been re-examined by a government psychiatrist, court records show, and Scoop recently reported that Lindauer’s attorney plans to attack claims she was an Iraqi agent and seek dismissal of the criminal charges.
She wrote to then-Bush chief of staff Andrew Card, who is also her second cousin: “…you must realize that if you go ahead with this invasion, Osama bin Laden will triumph, rising from his grave of seclusion. His network will be swollen with fresh recruits and…the United States will have delivered the death blow to itself.”
No wonder Michael Savage says that liberalisim is a mental disorder.
Isn’t it clear to you now that the editors and reporters running the failing newspapers in California and Seattle, are far left Democrat/Socialists?
The car dealers, home developers and IT professionals had no other choice for newspaper advertising. Now they do, and the media of choice is anything but newspapers.
You are right on the money, again. The PI is a socialist paper. Everyone who reads it in the Puget Sound Area knows that the Marxist message can be found in the sacred pages of the PI. The Seattle Times is less liberal, but only slightly. The only place to get any accurate and unbiased information is on your website.
