A mistake

Shortly after Greene married Cuspert, she realized her marriage was a mistake. To get away from her ISIS husband, she fled back to the United States.

Timeline of woman's journey

Greene was hired as an FBI translator in 2011. She was assigned to investigate Cuspert in January 2014. Six months later, she married him in June 2014. In August of the same year, she fled back to the United States and was arrested. In December 2014, Greene cooperated with authorities and was sentenced to two years in prison on August 8, 2014. She was released in August 2016.

Greene's story was kept secret all these years because the records were sealed. Also, it was for her protection from Cuspert and his group. Officials from National Security of the U.S. Attorney's Office agreed that Greene put herself and her country in great danger. She will never work for the FBI again. The former translator now works in a hotel lounge as a hostess. Since Greene was still married to her American husband at the time she married Cuspert, her marriage to the ISIS member wasn't legal. #FBI translator
