The federal government has quietly dropped its case against former congressional aide Susan Lindauer, but she may be heading back to court with a lawsuit.
Lindauer was accused of helping an Iraqi spy agency, but later she was declared mentally unfit for trial.
Here is what really happened.
In March 2001 Susan Lindauer carried a message from the Iraqi government to her cousin, the White House Chief of Staff, requesting the return of weapons inspectors. This proved that Iraq had no WMD, so the U.S. government knew that then.
Bush and Cheney nevertheless attacked and invaded Iraq using WMD as a pretext, and declared Susan Lindauer insane to silence her (a tactic copied from the former USSR).
