Federal prosecutors have leveled espionage charges against former U.S. Air Force counterintelligence agent, Monica Witt.
The 39 year-old Witt, who now goes by Fatemah Zahra, was found to have been working with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps to spy on American counterintelligence officials.
The indictment itself reads, “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.”
Born an American citizen, Witt enlisted with the Air Force in 1997 where she had access to both secret and top secret intel. In 2008 she left the Air Force to work for the Defense Department as a contractor.
However in 2012 Witt converted to Islam. It was around this time that she began delivering information to Iran.
Even though the U.S. has charged Witt with espionage, the traitor is currently at large. She is suspected of remaining in Iran and there is a warrant out for her arrest.
