Prouty was raised in Lebanon but came to America as a youth. The U.S. became her adopted home, where she became a respected undercover agent, first for the FBI, then for the CIA. She worked on many high-profile terrorism cases until she was accused of passing intelligence to Hezbollah. Her job was taken and her citizenship rescinded. Eventually exonerated, the resulting investigation revealed secrets Prouty had worked hard to veil.
