Wilson: There Have Been Threats
I've been reading things all over the place this week. Reading other people's very fine documentations of the atrocities, as it were. I've seen where some on the right have said that Valerie Plame outed herself by marrying Joseph Wilson. I've seen those on the right say, "well, no real crime was commited, she wasn't really under cover. And even if she was, she was just a desk jockey."
All of it is bullshit. Outing a CIA agent is a horrible crime at any time. The CIA book of fallen agents has an anonymous star in the year 2003. Anonymous stars are for agents that die or are killed while deep inder cover. Even in death, their identities are hidden. Is that star there because of the activities of Karl Rove and I. Lewis Libby? I don't know. But it seems more than probable.
And now Joseph Wilson is able to speak out. And what is one of the first things he tells us? That his wife, an extremely valuable security asset, gets threats. Threats that he can't tell us about.
