I enjoyed Valerie Plame's lecture very much. She was articulate and knowledgeable. She gave me a personal view of the CIA and confirmed what I thought about the executive branch of government under George W. Bush.

Quotes & Highlights

The 2010 movie Fair Game, starring Naomi Watts and Sean Penn, was based on Valerie Plame Wilson’s memoir.

Description

As a covert CIA Operations Officer, Valerie worked to protect America’s national security and prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. She found herself at the heart of a political fire-storm when senior White House and State Department officials revealed her secret status to several national journalists. A subsequent investigation exposed what some dub as an act of treason; that Valerie’s “outing” was coordinated with the involvement of key players in the Bush Administration.

At the podium, Valerie draws upon her best-selling book that inspired the movie Fair Game, laying out the CIA leak controversy in an incisive and enlightening presentation.
