Nada Nadim Prouty - Reinstatement of Citizenship
I am writing to express my strong support for Nada Nadim Prouty in her request for reinstatement of her U.S. Citizenship so that she can resume a productive, active life in a country she has served with valor and commitment, even at the risk of her own safety.
Additionally, I invite you to review the numerous similar accolades from colleagues and superiors familiar with the character of Ms. Prouty contained in the referenced Case No. 07-20156 sentencing memorandum (PDF).
Ms. Prouty is an upstanding member of her community and has a United States Citizen husband and United States Citizen children; and as such, she is an inextricably tied to America. Additionally, due to the sensitive nature of many of her covert operations while in the employ of the FBI/CIA, her looming deportation to Lebanon could place her life in grave danger.
I am requesting your assistance in reviewing this situation and acting on Ms. Prouty's behalf in reinstatement of her citizenship.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and efforts.
Carol, this is really great, well written and on point.
Awww . . . That's so kind of you to say, Peggy .
HOWEVER, there is a typo. If you copy/paste, please delete the highlighted word:
"Ms. Prouty is an upstanding member of her community and has a United States Citizen husband and United States Citizen children; and as such, she is an inextricably tied to America."
I was successful in contacting everyone on the list except for Diane Feinstein,Peter Hoekstra,and Lamar Smith. Unless you are one of their constituents they don't want to hear from you. I will continue writing,until I get them to respond and until they all accept that this is a travesty of justice and are willing to correct this wrong. Thank you C for providing all this information and the sample letter and the contacts.
Bless your heart, Edwin!
Thanks Carol, great letter, makes it sooo much easier, will send this afternoon to as many as I can.
Thank you for taking action!
