Susan Lindauer’s autobiography, Extreme Prejudice, tells a story with certain broad similarities. In her case, however, the hornet’s nest kicked.

One of the scariest, most eye opening books I have ever read. Jun 03, Lee Kronick rated it it was amazing. Susan Lindauer orejudice a most enlightening expose of her days as a CIA asset. I hung on her words as if this were a piece of exciting fiction Throughout, I felt the undercurrent of anger that the author released prejudics she premudice her story. Anyone, like me, who suspects the American government of cover-ups and political deceit, will eat this book up.
This is a book written by a megalomaniac. It is a linxauer serving repetitious one-sided account of a person susaj got themselves in a jam for doing something they shouldn’t have. I don’t believe a professional editor has ever reviewed any of what was written which makes reading a real chore. Sifting through all the hype to understand what is really taking place is like listening to an irate politician defend themselves from a criminal accusation.
First let’s start with Susan’s story. Susan is a peace This is a book written by a megalomaniac. There are two very important pieces of information which must be kept in mind when reading this story – 1 As stated by herself several times throughout the book Susan never signed a non-disclosure agreement with the US Government.
What does this mean? She never worked for the US intelligence agencies. From their perspective she was a source, not a partner – regardless of how Susan viewed the relationship. Susan’s differing view of the relationship resulted in her being used by her handlers. The fact that she was a source sksan information and not an actual US agent is an important distinction. Based upon Susan’s story she thought she was acting on behalf of the US Government during her various activities.
She was never an employee, appointed or elected official of the US Government and as lndauer could never officially represent the US Government.
Susan actually took her activism a step beyond taking no action. She pursued peace options and alternate forms of government to that which was established in occupied countries. As stated in the book her activism was counter to the current US Administration’s foreign policy. I understand Susan disagreed with the US Government eextreme policy.
I understand that there may have been alternatives to that policy which would have been a better choice to take. But Susan was not representing the US Government. She was a US private citizen.
A Review of Susan Lindauer’s Extreme Prejudice | Scoop News
As a private citizen she took action, including collaborating with foreign officials, to counter US foreign policy. In the eyes of the law this is conspiracy and treason. It is no wonder she was arrested. If a US private citizen doesn’t agree with the current US Administration’s policies they are to work within the system to ssusan that, not take action which directly conflicts that policy – especially when eusan action is in collusion with a foreign Government. This story needs to be examined and told by an independent investigative reporter.
This would allow a balanced lindaher of what took place. If there truly were improprieties taken by the US Government then those responsible should be held accountable. As written, with such a personal egocentric perspective, it is impossible to determine all the facts and what actually happened.
When you accuse everyone else in your sphere of influence as being wrong and conspiring against you that is usually the time when you might need to check on your own sanity. One star for general editorial quality of the book. One star for trying to claim a one-sided exposition of facts as a balanced story. Apr 24, Terry rated it lindaued liked it. Will make you think a lot differently about our government and how the Patriot Act is enforced.
How do you feel about the Patriot Act? Is it ectreme America from enemies foreign and domestic? Is it protecting YOU? Don’t think it affects you? Two books that I read recently document first-hand just how much of their legal preiudice from arbitrary intrusion Americans have prejduice under the Patriot Acts and their extension most recently signed by President Obama.
Certainly, Susan Lindauer did not expect ever to be sysan, fired, abducted, inte What Susan Knew: She did her job as instructed but when she tried to pass on the information the US Govt assigned her to acquire, she was told that she was to forget what she knew because her government did not want to know!
The information she was tasked with acquiring unequivocally pointed to a clear and present danger of terrorist attack, information from multiple sources both inside the US and abroad, information that was unimpeachable and easy for the intelligence community to confirm!
Author and ex-CIA asset, Susan Lindauer “Extreme Prejudice”
Lindauer kept trying to get what was obviously vital information through to the appropriate Intelligence directors. She tried for months. Right up to the final days before the attack happened. What Susan knew placed her career, sxtreme credibility, and ultimately her life and the lives of her family in danger.
The Patriot Act that she believed was designed to her protect her as an American citizen was used instead to treat her as a criminal for doing the job her government asked to her to do!
Extreme Prejudice is an important book. In fact, it is lindayer to the survival of every American that this information be disseminated and understood.
American rights are imperiled as they have not been since And most Americans either don’t know it, don’t think it applies to them, don’t want to know or are too afraid to face the reality of their precarious situation. They think what they don’t know can’t hurt them but it’s actually the other way around: Better to know what you can do to prevent such a disaster than to wait for the prejuddice attack in ignorance of where the worst threat comes from.
Sep 18, Jill rated it it was ok. A must read about abuse of power at the highest levels of government. Could’ve used a better editor. Oct 26, Dianne rated it really liked it Shelves: I believe that this is an important read. This is a significant book.
That being said, it would be in everyone’s best interest if Ms Lindauer would have an editor go through this book, tighten it up and then re-release it as a second edition. The redundancy interferes prejudicd the flow, flow which is required to keep the reader engaged.

She has a every right to be angry and distressed with those who put her through this illegal ordeal but in order to have more people pay attention and take her message seriously there needs to be more exposure to her words.
I would like to recommend this book to many of susaj friends, however I know that many of them will be too frustrated with the break in flow and the repetition to finish the read. Five stars would have been my selection without the redundancies. Lindauer for your story. No one should ever have to go through such an ordeal, especially someone who had dedicated a portion of their life to keeping those who tortured her safe and who provided information which should have kept countless of innocents from harm.
Aug 13, Petro Borchard rated it really liked it. Very topical and very scary. I for one have no doubts about the claims made by Susan Lindauer, although the US Government would never acknowledge it. The book could do with a bit of editing – suusan does repeat herself a bit, especially towards the end.
