watchlisting purposes as the Department and the National
Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) deem appropriate:

Gender: Female

3. (SBU) Subject had been employed by the U.S. Embassy in The
Hague, The Netherlands, as a telephone operator since August 31,
2009. After a coworker alerted Post's RSO to subject's use of
workplace computers to browse websites that espoused anti-USG
points of view, RSO requested post's Information Management
Officer (IMO) to investigate subject's workplace internet use.

4. (SBU) IMO's investigation yielded evidence that subject had
posted information and commentary on 9/11 conspiracy websites.
Furthermore, on her Facebook page, under the alias XXXXXXXXXXXX,
she had exchanged views and information with multiple people who
appeared to espouse jihadist viewpoints. She also posted a
hyperlink to a YouTube video, Winds of Paradise, which extols
the virtues of al-Qaeda fighters and jihad, to which she added
the comment, just beautiful.

5. (SBU) On February 23, 2010, the RSO and Legal Attache
confronted subject with records of her internet use and
subsequently terminated her employment. Subject is now the
focus of an FBI investigation run from the FBI New York Field
Office in coordination with post's Legal Attache and RSO.

6. (SBU) A local check of the Consolidated Consular Database
indicates no record. Recipients are requested to recheck the
CCD to verify.
