Posted on 03/27/2021 6:09:32 PM PDT by Libloather
A linguist for the Department of Defense pleaded guilty on Friday to passing classified information about U.S. human intelligence sources to an individual with ties to Hezbollah, a Lebanese terrorist organization, the Department of Justice said. Mariam Taha Thompson began sending the information after the U.S. killed Qassem Soleimani, a top Iranian military commander, in an airstrike in early 2020, according to court documents.
Thompson, who held a top secret security clearance, had been stationed at a Special Operations Task Force facility in Iraq from mid-December 2019 until her arrest a few months later.
Years before she began passing classified information, she was introduced to a Lebanese national on social media via a family member, according to the statement of facts that she agreed to as part of her plea. Though she never met the man in person, the man expressed interest in marrying her and having her move to Lebanon, the court documents said. The two communicated frequently from 2017 to 2020.
Through their chats, the now 63-year-old Thompson learned that the man, who is unnamed in the court documents, had a nephew who was a member of the Lebanese Ministry of the Interior. The man also claimed to have contact with members of Hezbollah. Prosecutors said Thompson did not tell the man where she was stationed and said he had not asked for classified information before January 2020.

I am tempted to say this is fake news. They were actually allowed to call Hezballah a terrorist organization.
She sold out the lives of her countries soldiers for her personal love life.
Ping to bad things in Iraq.
She thought she was clever. She thought she was cunning.
Lebanese Maronite Catholic, perhaps? Many of them are anti-Israel and sympathetic to Hezbollah Muslims.

They probably didn’t even investigate her crimes during the Obama admin.

The classified “files contained classified national defense information including true names, personal identification data, background information, and photographs of the human sources, as well as operations cables detailing information the human sources provided to the United States government
That is not going to help Intel sources. Except maybe for the likes of WaPo who seem to be able to keep secrets better. .
I wonder how many of the human assets she exposed were murdered as a result of her actions?

Pentagon officials believe that the more than a dozen missiles launched at two bases in Iraq housing U.S. forces Tuesday night were designed to kill Americans, but the Iranian efforts were thwarted by the military’s Early Warning Systems, Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Gen. Mark Milley told reporters on Wednesday. “I believe based on what I saw and what I know is that they were intended to cause structural damage, destroy vehicles and equipment and aircraft and to kill personnel,” Milley said. U.S. military officials were warned about Iran’s pending ballistic missile strike “when the air defense systems went active,”...
If he exposed agents he should be executed.
Wow. What an idiot.
She could have cost the lives of 10 with her treachery. She must be a democrat and hate this country.
As an old railway engineer of mine would say, : "She must have had low self steam."
The web has surprisingly little on her though, this bizarre unsharable apparently Muslim web site from India or Pakistan:
On that site they say that Thompson never met her Lebanese Hezbollah spy, apparently she fell in love with him over the internet, a victim of a Hezbolla web romance honey trap.

He promised the then 61 year old Thompson marriage.
Apparently she did a lot of damage.
I wonder what her sentence will be? I bet it will be Obama lite.
This gal is the latest in the new wave of people being recruited into SAP with high level clearances - its not about defending the country, but what they feel good about doing; so far has security clearance investigations fallen. This is the Eddy Snowjob generation.
The only way these betrayals will ever get under control is to use the Russian/Chinese method. No $10,000 fines and 10 years in prison penalties: no trial, no announcement, just a swift bullet, shovel and shut up.
