United States District Court,

Eastern District of Michigan, Case No. 07-20156

Nada Nadim Prouty - Reinstatement of Citizenship



Dear ____________:


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. 


In support of Ms. Prouty's character, and as testimony to her commendable service to this country, I draw your attention to the following summary quote from the Honorable Senior Federal Judge, Avren Cohn, of the United States District Court, Eastern District of Michigan, who presided over the subject case:

“You have rendered extraordinary services to the United States as an Agent of the FBI and in the employ of the CIA.  At no time did you ever compromise or jeopardize the integrity of any work assignment to improper behavior or inappropriate conduct.  As a citizen, you served your country honorably and effectively, and at times, in situations which exposed you to personal danger.”

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.


Sincerely,


[Your Name]

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.
