Md. Activist Charged With Working for Iraq

Indictment Says Ex-Press Aide Had Intelligence Links to Hussein. A former congressional press aide from Takoma Park was arrested yesterday for allegedly maintaining an “intelligence relationship” for several years with U.S.-based spies for Saddam Hussein before the Iraqi leader was ousted. Among other activities, authorities said, Susan Lindauer, 40, cooperated with Iraqi intelligence agents in January 2003 by delivering a letter to the home of a relative, White House Chief of Staff Andrew H. Card Jr., urging the Bush administration to hold off its invasion of Iraq so weapons inspectors could continue their work. Lindauer, described by people who know her as an ardent foe of the U.S.-led war against Hussein’s regime, was arrested at her home by FBI agents after a federal indictment in New York charged her with several crimes, including acting as an unregistered agent of a foreign government and violating laws against financial transactions with Iraq.
