Nada Prouty is used to overcoming challenges. She grew up in war-torn Lebanon, survived an abusive father, and emigrated alone to the U. S. as a teen. She forged her own path here, eventually serving almost a decade in the FBI and CIA. Prouty worked on the most high-profile cases in recent history, including the USS Cole bombing and the hunt for Saddam Hussein. But at the height of anti-Arab fervor after nine-eleven, federal investigators accused her of passing intelligence to Hezbollah. Now the former secret agent is on a new mission. Nada Prouty talks with Diane about the fight to regain her US citizenship and her reputation.
