from raw story: A Detroit-area businesswoman serving a six-year sentence in federal prison for selling goods to Iraq during the embargo against Saddam Hussein was unwittingly working for the CIA, the woman’s supporters say.
According to NBC affiliate WDIV, Dawn Hanna of Rochester Hills, Michigan, was working for a CIA contractor when she arranged for telecommunications equipment to be sent to the Middle East in 2002 and 2003.
The person claiming to be that contractor, Emad Al-Yawer, says that he was working on a CIA plan to sell communications equipment to Saddam Hussein that would be bugged with espionage instruments. The plan was for the agency to locate and kill the Iraqi dictator.
“The whole idea was, once they get to Saddam, send a smart bomb and blow him [to] smithereens,” Al-Yawer told WDIV. Al-Yawer’s Jordanian company, Advanced Technical Systems, was the partner with whom Hanna worked to deliver the communications equipment.
