About Valerie Plame
On July 14, 2003, the CIA lost one of its finest covert Operations Officers when senior White House and State Department officials revealed her top-secret identity to a newspaper columnist who published her name – Valerie Plame.
The political firestorm fueled an investigation uncovering suspicions that the Bush administration compromised Valerie’s identity on purpose – a federal act of treason; and in 2007, she published the intimate details of the affair in her 2007 New York Times Best Selling autobiography Fair Game: My Life as a Spy, My Betrayal by the White House.
As a CIA operative, Valerie managed top-secret programs designed to keep terrorists and rogue nation states from acquiring nuclear weapons. She continues her service in global intelligence as a board member of Global Data Sentinel, a cyber security company that safeguards digital data through email, Starling Trust, a predictive behavioral analytics agency, and the Ploughshares Fund, as well as numerous nonprofit organizations.
