Well, Well, Well

Turns out Valerie was a covert agent after all. MSNBC (05.29.07), via AmericaBlog:
"An unclassified summary of outed CIA officer Valerie Plame's employment history at the spy agency, disclosed for the first time today in a court filing by Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald, indicates that Plame was 'covert' when her name became public in July 2003.

The summary is part of an attachment to Fitzgerald's memorandum to the court supporting his recommendation that I. Lewis 'Scooter' Libby, Vice President Cheney's former top aide, spend 2-1/2 to 3 years in prison for obstructing the CIA leak investigation."

Plame was ‘covert’ agent at time of name leak

"The unclassified summary of Plame's employment with the CIA at the time that syndicated columnist Robert Novak published her name on July 14, 2003 says, 'Ms. Wilson was a covert CIA employee for who the CIA was taking affirmative measures to conceal her intelligence relationship to the United States.'"

"After the Novak column was published and Plame's identity was widely reported in the media, and according to the document, 'the CIA lifted Ms Wilson's cover' and then 'rolled back her cover' effective to the date of the leak."

Thanks, boys. Really appreciate you blowing her cover like that.
