Susan Lindauer: Bush Regime Rejected Iraq Peace Option

wordpress analytics

Susan Lindauer was a back channel CIA asset who negotiated with Saddam Hussein in the run up to the Iraq War. She was an outspoken proponent for the Peace Option that was ultimately rejected by the Bush Regime. Saddam had offered to buy 1 million cars a year for 10 years and promised the US favorable contracts in pharmaceuticals & medical equipment. Saddam agreed to cooperate against terrorism by letting the FBI into Baghdad 6 months before 9/11 and he even offered to retire to an island to avoid the War.

Lindauer was outspoken in her criticism of the war and for her efforts she ended up becoming a political prisoner at Carswell Air Force Base. Susan was also a speaker at the Vancouver Hearings last year. She revealed that the CIA had information in February 2001 that the Twin Towers were going to be nuked. She has a book available on Amazon: Extreme Prejudice: The Terrifying Story of the Patriot Act and the Cover Ups of 9/11 and Iraq.

She was in the Twin Cities recently and appeared on a local cable access show that you can view below on YouTube.

Here is Susan’s intro:

Most of you know I was the Chief U.S. Asset covering the Iraqi Embassy at the United Nations for 7 years before the War. You know I was subsequently arrested on the Patriot Act, locked up on Carswell Air Force Base, and threatened with forcible drugging to silence me, when the Bush cabal decided to blame Pre-War Intelligence for their catastrophic decision to go to War.

On the 10 year anniversary of the start of the War, it’s worth examining the comprehensive peace option hammered out in the two year run up to the invasion. I was traveling in Minnesota this week for speaking engagements. In a television interview, I discussed the peace option at length.

I hope it will persuade the world to give diplomacy a chance to forestall confrontation with Iran in the months ahead. It’s never so hopeless as you might think.
