Valerie Plame hadn’t said much since Bush administration officials blew her cover as a CIA agent to discredit her husband, Joseph Wilson, a critic of the Iraq war. But in testimony to Congress today, she didn’t hold back, saying officials "carelessly and recklessly abused" her name and identity, and prevented her from doing the work for which she’d been trained. She rightly warned: "If our government cannot even protect my identity, future foreign agents who might consider working with the Central Intelligence Agency and providing needed intelligence would think twice."
