Fitzgerald says Valerie Plame was Covert

In January, 2002, she was working for the agency “as an operations officer” in the Directorate of Operations’s Counterproliferation Division (CPD) and serving as “chief” of a unit with responsibility for weapons proliferation issues related to Iraq. In that capacity, he added, she traveled overseas in an undercover capacity.

“She traveled at least seven times to more than 10 countries,” the document states. “When traveling overseas, Ms. Wilson always traveled under a cover identity….At the time of the initial unauthorized disclosure in the media of Ms. Wilson’s employment relationship with the CIA on 14 July 2003, Ms. Wilson was a covert CIA employe for whom the CIA was taking affirmative measures to conceal her intelligence relationship to the United States.”

You cannot both defend and despise the CIA. Oh, maybe you can, you are a leftist. If you had any credentials at all you would look at the outing of Valerie Plame as a whistle blowing incident! You lefties love whistle blowers.

How can Valerie Plame be "under cover" under a different identity when she is the highly visible wife of a US diplomat -- an ambassador, no less -- living in Washington DC. Seen at numerous foreign embassies as such on Wilson's arm -- then jetting off as Bond...Jane Bond. I could understand if the story was that she travelled as herself and did "covert" work while abroad. But a new identity. To quote my stoner roommate from college (even he would get it) -- "that don't make no sense." I mean, please...

This cover story is a favor from one part of the building at Langley to another -- nothing more. And like I said, it don't make no sense.
