The Real Valerie Plame

THE REAL VALERIE PLAME….The Washington Post has a good profile of Valerie Plame today. Obviously there’s a limited amount of information available about her, but Dana Priest and Richard Leiby seem to have dug up a fair amount of interesting background. She sure as hell was no desk jockey.

Honors for best line goes to Plame’s mother:

“They spoiled it. They more than spoiled it — they brought a lot of harm,” Diane Plame said, referring to the leakers and to Novak. “For people to come out and say this would cause no harm, what kind of IQs do they have?”

I’m not sure that IQ is actually the relevant personality characteristic here, but point taken.
