Nada Nadim Prouty is a former CIA officer of Syrian-Lebanese origin who was recruited into the CIA from the FBI in 2003, and, in 2007, pled guilty to unauthorized use of an FBI computer and naturalization fraud. Prouty admitted that she committed naturalization fraud, for paying a man to marry her when she was 19 so she could get U.S. citizenship. She voluntarily waived the 10-year statute of limitations on immigration fraud when the investigation against her began.
U.S. officials said, at the time of her investigation, there was no evidence that Nada Nadim Prouty passed secrets to Hezbollah or to other groups the United States considers terrorist.
In an interview with CBS’ 60 Minutes in 2010, she claimed that she pled guilty to the computer charge to end the case, and was given no jail time in exchange for her plea.
