Even if you have to hold your nose when you click here, read Robert Novak’s column so you get the full monty of this pouty wiener’s view of Valarie Plame Wilson.
The glamorous Mrs. Wilson was depicted as the victim of White House machinations that aborted her career in intelligence.
MR. RUSSERT: But she was undercover, you grant her that?MR. NOVAK: I don’t think she — there’s a difference between being undercover and being a covert agent. She was doing analytical work at the CIA. She was not involved in any covert activities.
MR. RUSSERT: Her friends and neighbors did not know that she worked for the CIA.
MR. NOVAK: Well, other people contend to me that it was very widely known in circles in town that she did work for the CIA.
MR. RUSSERT: Her official status was not to be public —
MR. NOVAK: There’s a lot of people like that. But she was a person who went to work every day as an analyst because I am told she’d been outed by the traitor, Aldrich Ames, many years ago. But as a matter of fact, getting back to Harlow (a former CIA spokesman), what Harlow said to me was that if she were to make a trip overseas in the future it might be embarrassing for her, but he also said before that, he said it is highly unlikely she will ever do — make a trip for the agency abroad. In other words, he was telling me that she was not going to do any covert activity. He never said she was in danger. (Link)
