Covert Plame

By Michael J.W. Stickings

In testimony before the House Government and Oversight Committee today, outed CIA agent Valerie Plame stated that she was in fact, and contrary to right-wing claims (lies), covert at the time her identity was made public by conservative pundit Robert Novak.

Think Progress has the video here (along with a round-up of the right's "false claims").


See also WaPo: "It was a terrible irony that administration officials were the ones who destroyed my cover," Plame told the committee. Her identity was blown "carelessly and recklessly".

See also our co-blogger Libby Spencer over at The Impolitic, as well as updates on Plame's testimony from Barbara O'Brien at The Mahablog.



See Taylor Marsh: "Let's also remember that this whole event stemmed around Joseph Wilson deflating the Bush administration's case for war. Nothing is clearer."
