Plame Felt Like 'Soviet Nonperson' (Whiny-person Barf Alert)
The Albuquerque Journal ^ | October 24, 2007 | Kathaleen Roberts

Posted on 10/24/2007 7:56:54 AM PDT by CedarDave

To flip through the first third of Valerie Plame Wilson's "Fair Game: My Life as a Spy, My Betrayal by the White House" is to confront an optical maze of gray stripes interrupting juicy anecdotes and methodical musings.

CIA censors blacked out 10 percent of the text in her memoir, leaving its narrative disjointed and sometimes hard to follow. "I believe the vast majority of what is blacked out in the book has nothing to do with national security and everything to do with diminishing me and Joe," she said.

Agency censors also wouldn't allow Plame Wilson to acknowledge working there before 2002, even though public records and news stories are heavy with accounts describing her as a 20-year veteran.

Discounted by critics as a "glorified secretary," Plame Wilson takes great pains to defend her job description. She rose to top-level positions around the globe, working deep undercover, she writes. By 1998, she was working at the agency's Langley, Va., headquarters in counter-proliferation. By the time her name was leaked, she was chief of operations for the CIA's joint task force on Iraq, managing dozens of officers and analysts.

~~snip~~

Both Wilsons are convinced she was outed in retaliation by White House officials who sought to discredit him by dismissing the trip as a junket arranged by his wife. "This notion that there was nepotism involved is at minimum a red herring."

In an instant, she knew her career was over: "I felt like I had been sucker-punched in the gut."

Bush vowed to fire whoever leaked her identity. As the investigation dragged on, Plame Wilson says, she received threats and asked the CIA for security, but was denied.

"The agency likes to talk big on saying we are all family; I certainly didn't feel like family."

So true. The below paragraph reminds me of that picture of Joe in the foreground with her in a robe in the background:
In an instant, she knew her career was over: "I felt like I had been sucker-punched in the gut. I got up, put on my robe, went downstairs and called my boss."

Anyone got a link to that picture?

Poor Val, she lives in denial of who “punched her in the gut”.

Her own husband dear Joe, did it, he is the wife beater here.

When he wrote that oped in the NYT, he exposed her....bigtime.

Plame Felt Like 'Soviet Nonperson'

Unless someone took her into the basement of Lubyanka Prison and shot her in the back of the head, she probably did not feel like a Soviet non-person.

When you’re a government employee, particularly in the Intel Community, you give up certain “rights,” the right to write books on anything you want. In return you get a good salary/benefits, relatively interesting work, and a nice standard of living.

Pretty good tradeoff.

The rules aren’t new she just doesn’t to follow them.

Valerie and Joe are two good examples of opportunists who figured out long ago on how to milk the system. The MSM are their helpers.

Whom ever is promoting her sure picked a sorry moment in time to promote her. She will have to go playmate to get the kind of coverage her husband is lusting after.

“Bush vowed to fire whoever leaked her identity. As the investigation dragged on, Plame Wilson says, she received threats and asked the CIA for security, but was denied.”

What’s this “whoever” stuff. She knows who leaked her “not a secret agent” status. Furthermore, Richard Armitage is long gone. The only guy that is going to jail thanks to her Democrat fun and games is Cheney’s chief of staff who had nothing to do with something that wasn’t a crime anyway. This lady is a walking disaster.

And she whines about that, too:

Plame Wilson was at home alone in March 2007 when she learned that Lewis "Scooter" Libby, the vice president's chief of staff, had been convicted of perjury and obstruction of justice. Bush commuted his prison sentence. "It showed that the prosecutor could not get to the bottom of this," she said. "It was a very sad day for our country."

Wilson Gets Award For Acting, Destroys Credibility of Tim Russert and Meet The Press


Mr. Wrong:
Life is short, so we won't be reading Valerie Plame's new book, "Fair Game." But Nicholas Wapshott's review in the New York Sun reinforces something we've thought for a long time about the world's most famous "secret agent," namely that she has atrocious taste in men:

"The frequent fights, seething accusations, hurtful words, and entrenched bitterness pushed us both to the brink," Ms. Plame writes. And she is talking about her fights with her husband, not Karl Rove.

"Joe is a formidable opponent in any circumstance, and I felt I was always on the losing side, unable to make my case coherently because so much emotion was involved and so much at stake personally. When communication nearly halted entirely, it became obvious that our marriage was in deep trouble. We retreated further into our shells and each began to contemplate life without the other."


Reading this, you understand why she was so eager to ship the guy off to Niger! Apparently she didn't want him to know that it was she who wanted him out of the country:

"On page 186, Ms. Plame explains she wrote an e-mail that read: "My husband has good relations with both the [Niger] PM and the former Minister of Mines (not to mention lots of French contacts), both of whom could possibly shed light on this sort of activity."

"When this e-mail came to light, in a Senate Intelligence Committee report, the high-strung Mr. Wilson once again launched into a temper tantrum. 'Midway through the silent meal, Joe abruptly got up, dumped his unfinished plate in the sink, and left the room in a wordless rage. . . . Despite my best efforts to explain the innocence of the e-mail, Joe was too upset to listen. He just glared at me.'

"Mr. Wilson comes out badly according to his wife's account: invariably abusing her, storming off, or on the verge of tears, and when the White House concedes that the yellowcake mention was wrong, he does not accept victory graciously but needs to hurl himself angrily onto the national stage to draw the apology to everyone's notice. While Ms. Plame is left home in Washington looking after 7-year-old twins, anxious and exposed, her job in jeopardy, he is gallivanting around America talking to conspiracy theorists and peaceniks in community colleges."

If only she had told the CIA to make it a one-way ticket . . . .

"By the time her name was leaked, she was chief of operations for the CIA's joint task force on Iraq, managing dozens of officers and analysts."

IF this is remotely accurate then her own incompetence was front-and-center in this whole affair BEFORE her mendacious husband ever started the publications process that led most directly to her 'exposure'.....

In puffing up her credentials she is claiming that she was just about the #1 expert in the CIA on Iraq and WMDs, yet no one in the pathetic MSM seems to think it's worth pressing her on why the CIA's own pre-war performance was so absolutely inept that the US govt. had no idea what was really going on in Iraq, why the whole "uranium in Africa" matter has been allowed to become such a farcical fraud for 4+ years, etc. Ms. "Harriet-the-Spy" Plame should be doing a lot of squirming and worming on hard questions regarding her role in every aspect of pre-war intel plus the absurdities of Plamegate. Instead, 60 Minutes and other MSM clowns prove once again why they are so contemptibly incompetent and dishonest.
