Skip to comments.Plame Felt Like 'Soviet Nonperson' (Whiny-person Barf Alert)
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.
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."

I believe one or both have joined the Hillary campaign as anadvisor. Anyone know their connection with the Clinton’s?
Can anyone spell “Media Whore” in the Cyrillic alphabet?
Maybe she should release a few more naked pics of herself.
That’s usually the answer.
I just bet she was top spy.........if that’s the best we can do it is all over, folks.
Who’s ass is she trying to blow smoke up? The commie liberal POS. As I See It,
Some spy; she had her bio published in Who’s Who.
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?
Only picture I will post:
She was so tough to crack she admitted she told Joe she was a spy after thy bumped uglies on the second date.
Almost made it to the water boarding.....
I can believe that. Palme sounds like such a fake.
(Roughly): МEДЯЪ ЧOРЪ
Repeat: she was not a spy, she was an analyst with delusions of grandeur.
She is a Soviet nonperson.
She really said “you’re MIA guy!”
Joe heard “I’m a CIA spy”
Yes, but I "amended" it (a bit) to comment on Miss Plame's penchant for Film Noir dramatics...
That’s some keyboard you have there.
