Valerie Plame-Wilson, the former CIA officer whose cover was blown by the Bush administration in 2003, has dedicated most of the past 13 years to setting the record straight.
Her 2007 memoir, New York Times best-seller “Fair Game: My Life as a Spy, My Betrayal by the White House,” details her 20-year career in the CIA’s Counterproliferation Division and the government scandal that led to some of the highest-profile federal court battles of the 2000s.
After graduating from Pennsylvania State University, she applied to the CIA and was accepted to the 1985 officer training program. Recognized for her intelligence and talent, she was selected to serve as a covert counterproliferation officer tasked with preventing the spread of nuclear weapons and materials. For most of her career, she was stationed in countries throughout Southern Europe and the Near East, often posing as a consular officer or an analyst for various CIA shell companies.
