FBI investigates Dutch embassy worker
The FBI is investigating a Dutch woman, who worked at the US embassy in The Hague. The woman is believed to have visited anti-American websites according to messages by US diplomats revealed by WikiLeaks.
The woman had worked at the embassy since the end of August 2009. She was dismissed last February. It is not known how far the FBI has got with its investigation.
She has both Dutch and Croatian nationality.
The investigation began following a tip from a colleague about her internet use. She allegedly commented on sites on conspiracy theories for the 9/11 attacks and allegedly wrote “just beautiful” in response to a YouTube video called Winds of Paradise describing the virtues of the Jihad and al-Qaeda.
The Dutch Foreign Ministry has declined to comment on the case, saying that is a matter for the US authorities.
