WASHINGTON, D.C. ( WUSA ) - Lynnae Williams says she was in training to be a CIA spy but after she claimed she was abused by the agency, she has had enough of keeping secrets and now aggressively tweets about what she has called "CIA crimes."
"I applied to the CIA to serve my country and do something beyond myself, support an important mission, what I thought was an important mission, and to contribute. I believed in public service before I joined the CIA and thought it would be a good opportunity to do exactly that, " she told 9News Now.
"I was with the CIA for about three and a half months before I was sent to their secret psychiatric prison in Northern Virginia. I was a clandestine service trainee in their program so I wasn't officially a spy yet. I was training to be a spy," she said.
"Yes, something did go bad. I still don't know the full details because the CIA refuses to disclose, despite my numerous attempts to get information out of them, despite numerous Freedom of Information Act requests," she said.
"Ultimately I got into a car accident and the CIA sent me to their secret prison," she told 9News Now.
" A secret psychiatric prison? That's a pretty dramatic description," responded a 9News Now reporter.
"What is it?"
"It is a psychiatric facility located in Northern Virginia. They attempted to drug me, to place me on drugs," she said.
"Do you think there is any chance they're right, that you have any kind of mental failing that would have prevented you from being a good case officer or a good spy?" asked 9News Now.
"No. I'm 100 percent sure they are incorrect. The system is corrupt."
"I believe that by tweeting and blogging I am serving my country by exposing the CIA's fraud," Williams said.
Reached late Thursday evening, a spokesman for the CIA declined to comment on the story.
