This is a scary story which illustrates why national security is an important issue. How a person could get away with falsifying documents well enough to access classified government information is very troubling. However, this person does not represent the many hard working undocumented immigrants that I speak of on this blog. Nada obviously didn’t cross over the US/Mexican border to get into this country.
I think the fact that the governments background check on Nada Nadim Prouty just goes to show how faulty our databases and information gathering system are. So why do we believe these same databases are going to be accurate when serving no-match letter or when employers are verifying citizenship with ICE?

The sister-in-law of the indicted fugitive owner of the La Shish restaurant chain got sensitive jobs at the FBI and CIA, despite being an illegal immigrant, federal prosecutors said in court documents unsealed today in Detroit.
The woman, Nada Nadim Prouty, 37, of Vienna, Va., also tapped into a sensitive FBI computer to find out what federal investigators knew about her, La Shish restaurant owner Talal Chahine, and her sister, who is married to Chahine.
