Mariam Thompson is a Pentagon translator who was sentenced to 23 years in prison for passing the names of US informants in Iraq to a person linked to Hezbollah terrorist group.
Thompson was born in Lebanon and became a U.S. citizen in the 1993.
She had admitted transmitting the classified information to a Lebanese national in hopes that it would be passed on to the group designated a terrorist organization by Washington.
Thompson worked as an interpreter on a foreign military base when, in 2017, she began a relationship on a video app with a man who said he was connected to Hezbollah terrorist group in Lebanon.
She was assigned to American special forces in Arbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan, in December 2019, when the unit initiated strikes against a pro-Iranian militia, which ended January 3, 2020, with the death of powerful Iranian General Qassim Suleimani.
Shortly after, Thompson’s contact asked for information about agents suspected of having aided the United States.
Thompson gave him data on several American informants, including the real names of at least eight people, accessed through personnel files, and information on US military tactics.
The files also contained personal identification data, background information, and photographs of the human sources, as well as operations cables detailing information the human sources provided.
