This was a GREAT story but I had to give it three stars for the organization and narrative of the writing But Nada s story is compelling and heartbreaking at the same time Guilty And a liar This was a really interesting book that definitely kept the pages turning The author was simply trying to serve the country that she d grown to love but our government sure did make it difficult for herOverall I found the writing to be fine but it felt like the nd was a little rushed About 34 of the book is a build up to the ridiculousness and then it s just sort of rushed through I felt like the reasons she was set up should have been gotten into with a little depthI would certainly recommend it to a friend and I m glad I read it Also thanks to the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program for the copy of this book Nada Prouty is a HeroHer brother and father are AssholesKenneth Chadwell is an AssholeKenneth L Wainstein is an AssholeThat being said Uncompromised The Rise and Fall of an Arab American Patrio Uncompromised is a powerful memoir Nada Prouty a former FBI and CIA agent tells the story of how she came to be involved in the War on Terror and how she was accused of spying for Hezbollah She starts her story with her childhood in war torn Lebanon providing an interesting and important background to both who Nada is as a person and her desire to serve the United States in the fight against terrorism She then goes on to tell of her immigration to America and how she became first an FBI agent and then later a CIA spy finally Nada concludes with the devastating story of how she became known as Jihad Jane when she was falsely accused of spying for Hezbollah The writing is fairly simple yet works very well for Nada in telling her story There were some parts where she discussed her former colleagues New Plant Parent: Learn the Ways of Plant Parenthood especially in discussing her time at the Bureau where I was a little off put because she described her unwavering commitment to justice and often compared it to I was not familiar with Nada Prouty s story prior to receiving Uncompromised from the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program and I m not sure I can say I m particularly glad to know it now Mostly it was just completely disgusting and made membarrassed for my country and what was done to her Nada was born in Lebanon and came to the United States both to get #Away From Her Incredibly Oppressive Family And # from her incredibly oppressive family and get an Dreaming Me: An African-American Woman's Buddhist Journey education She made some mistakes when she was first here most notably marrying a man in order to gain citizenship but herventual service to our country should have made up for it She went on to serve in both the FBI and the CIA and by all r most accounts her first hand knowledge of the Middle East and the Arabic language were xtremely valuableThen of course she gets completely shafted for no real reason You can see it coming a mile away not just because of the revealing title but because it s set up in a pretty obvious wayOverall this was an interesting read though again it mbarrassed the hell out of me I also found the flow to be a little off The first 34 or so dealt with her life in Lebanon her immigration to the United States and her service to the intelligence communities Then it dealt with the fall and that portion felt a little rushed and wasn t nearly as Nada Prouty served her country loyally with distinction and as universally wasn t nearly as Nada Prouty served her country loyally with distinction and as universally by her colleagues with great personal courage as a CIA covert officer This tale of rampant trampling of citizen's rights is a vivid reminder of the responsibility of citizens to be vigilant against unaccountable government overreach if we hope to keep a strong democracy where the rule of law prevails and where a citizen is presumed innocent until proven guilty Valerie Plame author of Fair GameWhen Nada Prouty came to the United States as a young woman she fell in love with the democracy and freedom of her new home After a childhood in war torn Lebanon with an .
