Valerie Elise Plame was born on August 13, 1963, on Elmendorf Air Force Base, in Anchorage, Alaska, to Diane (née McClintock) and Samuel Plame III. Plame says that her paternal grandfather was Jewish, the son of a rabbi who emigrated from Ukraine; the original family surname was “Plamevotski”. The rest of Plame’s family was Protestant (the religion in which Plame was raised); she was unaware, until she was an adult, that her grandfather was Jewish.. Some have argued that Plame likes to mention her recently-discovered Jewish ancestry to shift focus away from her anti-semitism controversy , described in a section below..

Plame served the CIA at times as a non-official cover (or NOC), operating in Athens and Brussels. While using her own name, “Valerie Plame”, her assignments required posing in various professional roles in order to gather intelligence more effectively. Two of her covers include serving as a junior consular officer in the early 1990s in Athens and then later as an energy analyst for the private company (founded in 1994) “Brewster Jennings & Associates,” which the CIA later acknowledged was a front company for certain investigations. However, others have stated that she did not have covert status, and worked at the CIA as an analyst.

A former senior diplomat in Athens remembered Plame in her dual role and also recalled that she served as one of the “control officers” coordinating the visit of President George H. W. Bush to Greece and Turkey in July 1991. After the Persian Gulf War in 1991, the CIA sent her first to the London School of Economics and then the College of Europe, in Bruges, for Master’s degrees. After earning the second degree, she stayed on in Brussels, where she began her next assignment under cover as an “energy consultant” for Brewster-Jennings. Beginning in 1997, Plame’s primary assignment was shifted to the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia.

As Deathstroke howled at them about the death of his son, Joe Wilson himself sauntered into the room. As it turned out, Joe had neither been killed by the Jackals, nor was he their prisoner. In fact, he was their leader. The episode came to a close as Deathstroke faced his son, stunned.

In his press conference of October 28, 2005, Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald explained the necessity of secrecy about his grand jury investigation that began in the fall of 2003 — “when it was clear that Valerie Wilson’s cover had been blown” — and the background and consequences of the indictment of then high-ranking Bush Administration official Scooter Libby as it pertained to her.

In May 2006, the New York Times reported that Valerie Wilson agreed to a $2.5-million book deal with Crown Publishing Group, a division of Random House. Steve Ross, senior vice president and publisher of Crown, told the Times that the book would be her “first airing of her actual role in the American intelligence community, as well as the prominence of her role in the lead-up to the war.” Subsequently, the New York Times reported that the book deal fell through and that Plame was in exclusive negotiations with Simon & Schuster. Ultimately, Simon and Schuster publicly confirmed the book deal, though not the financial terms and, at first, no set publication date.

On July 13, 2006, Joseph and Valerie Wilson filed a civil lawsuit against Rove, Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney, and other unnamed senior White House officials (to whom they later added Richard Armitage) for their alleged role in the public disclosure of Valerie Wilson’s classified CIA status. Judge John D. Bates dismissed the Wilsons’ lawsuit on jurisdictional grounds on July 19, 2007; the Wilsons appealed. On August 12, 2008, in a 2-1 decision, the three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit upheld the dismissal. Melanie Sloan, of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, which represents the Wilsons, “said the group will request the full D.C. Circuit to review the case and appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.” Agreeing with the Bush administration, the Obama Justice Department argued the Wilsons have no legitimate grounds to sue. On the current justice department position, Sloan stated: “We are deeply disappointed that the Obama administration has failed to recognize the grievous harm that Bush White House officials inflicted on Joe and Valerie Wilson. The government’s position cannot be reconciled with President Obama’s oft-stated commitment to once again make government officials accountable for their actions.”
