Valerie Plame-Wilson

This video is a portion of ex-CIA agent Valerie Plame-Wilson’s talk at the Marin Center, San Rafael, California. As a covert CIA Operations Officer, Valerie worked to protect America’s national security and prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. She found herself at the heart of a political fire storm when senior White House and State Department officials revealed her secret status to several national journalists. A subsequent investigation exposed what some dub as an act of treason; that Valerie’s “outing” was coordinated with the involvement of key players in the Bush Administration. At the podium, Valerie draws upon her best-selling book that inspired the movie Fair Game, laying out the CIA leak controversy in an incisive and enlightening presentation.
