A US Air Force officer has defected to Iran and shared information that could cause "serious damage" to America's national security, officials have revealed.

The former Air Force intelligence specialist was charged with espionage and was accused of working for Iran, according to an unsealed federal indictment.

The announcement arrived after Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Demers and other senior officials held a call with reporters to discuss what they called “a national security related action involving Iran”.

Mr Demers was joined by US Attorney for Washington, Jessie Liu, FBI Executive Assistant Director for National Security Jay Tabb, Treasury Department director of Foreign Assets Control Adrea Gacki and Air Force Office of Special Investigations Special Agent Terry Phillips.

The officials discussed the unsealed indictment against Monica Witt, a former counterintelligence officer for the Air Force Office of Special Investigations. Ms Witt defected to Iran nearly six years ago in 2013.

Good thing our CIA is right on top of this, might have been some very important cocktail chatter between Mike Flynn and ambassador kislyak they missed.

The CIA can’t get a rendition order on this treasonous woman?

Then contract the Mossad to bring her sorry Muslim a$$ out of Iran into the USA.

Allahwahoo Rebar!

Yes. Looks like it was put on the back burner until a new president took over.

Note that Yahoo doesn’t mention that she converted to Islam or that she is in Iran, mentioning she is “at large”.

Counterintelligence may be counter intuitive but it is not done for entertainment purposes.

This is the result of my so called Pope playing games with this so called mono theistic cult instead of doing this

The very least Francis could be doing is raising theological questions on the assertions made in the Islamic codex (which is their code of observance and behavior) known as Sharia, Beginning with this question
http://www.theusmat.com/islamandfreewill.htm
Instead of reaching out to and defending what Judeo/Christian beliefs are. Challenging the claims that Islamist make they are following God’s command when ruthlessly murdering and torturing non believers and destroy their edifices. Parties with suppressors of the faith
