JUST IN: Islamic Convert and Former Air Force Counterintel Agent Charged with Spying For Iran
Islamic convert and spy Monica Witt AKA Fatemah Zahra
A former US Air Force counterintelligence agent was charged with espionage after giving Iran code names and missions of secret Pentagon programs.
Federal prosecutors disclosed that Monica Witt AKA Fatemah Zahra, 39, was working with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, an organization known for carrying out terrorist plots around the world and is sanctioned by the US government.
The US intel agent turned spy was targeting American counterintelligence officials — she is currently at large and is believed to be in Iran and there is a warrant out for her arrest.
According to the indictment, “WITT conducted research for the purpose of creating target packages against US Counterintelligence agents, and did create such packages in order to enable the Govt of Iran to target US counterintelligence agents.”
Monica Elfriede Witt, an American citizen, joined the Air Force in 1997 and was granted access to SECRET and TOP SECRET national defense information relating to the foreign intelligence and counterintelligence of the US, including HUMINT containing the true names of the intelligence sources and clandestine agents of the USIC, the indictment stated.
Witt left the Air Force in 2008 and eventually became a Defense Department contractor.
According to the indictment, Witt began unlawfully transmitting information to Iran in January of 2012 — that same year, Witt converted to Islam — her Islamic conversion ceremony was broadcast on Iranian television in February of 2012 according to the indictment.
FBI special agents even warned Witt she was a target for recruitment by Iranian intel officials after she converted to Islam.
After her conversion to Islam, Witt traveled to Iran on several occasions in 2012 and 2013 and appeared on Iranian broadcast television identifying herself as a US veteran, slammed the US military and even stated she wanted to move to Iran.
On August 28, 2013, Witt officially defected to Iran and gave them her computer equipment.
Federal prosecutors described how Witt gave her job history and biography to an individual with ties to Iran’s intel ops in August of 2013 — at this time she moved to Iran and gave the officials her computer equipment.
According to prosecutors, between January of 2014 and May of 2015, Witt searched Facebook accounts of Americans and created “target packages” for the Iran against US counterintel agents.
Four other Iranians who were working with Witt were also charged as cyber conspirators.
The four Iranian cyber conspirators obtained computer infrastructure, virtual private servers, email accounts and social media accounts of their US targets.
This is what actual treason looks like — who knows how many more spies are freely roaming around since our premiere law enforcement and intel agencies are busy chasing Russian collusion ghosts.
