Valerie Plame: Dick Cheney ‘wounding’ former colleagues
Former CIA operative Valerie Plame Wilson and her husband appeared on MSNBC’s The Last Word to discuss the memoir recently published by former Vice President Dick Cheney.
“He’s wounding his former colleagues,” she said in regards to his depiction of Condoleezza Rice. “He’s shown nothing but contempt.”
“And I think it is so ironic that Dick Cheney, who touts his national security prominence and expertise, has never once accepted any responsibility, nor regret, for the outing — the betrayal — of a CIA officer that was working on nuclear weapons — finding them, stopping them.”
High-level members of the Bush’s administration allegedly revealed Mrs. Wilson’s covert status as retribution for Mr. Wilson, a former ambassador, publishing a series of op-eds questioning the misrepresentation of intelligence leading up to the invasion of Iraq.
