    Who is Valerie Plame? She's Married to Joe Wilson, a former US diplomat. Her cover as a CIA agent was blown by disgraced journalist Robert Novak, during the Bush 43 presidency, Bush promised to find and punish leakers in his administration.

    Why does Valerie want to buy twitter? It's a very good and honorable reason.

    Yes she is the former CIA agent outed by the idiot son and his boy dick over the whole yellow cake lie .

    I think I saw last year that Twitter was for sale. The reason is that as popular as it is , it does not generate great amounts of money. I don't know who owns it or how much it costs but , really , in this day and age, to the one percent ,money no longer matters ,they have endless supplies.

    Her mission is to buy enough stock in twitter, enough to be a large shareholder and then get Trump's twitter account suspended or kicked off completely, that I would like to see.

    I think we should keep him on Twitter; why? Because otherwise he will hide how crazy he is and are not warned when he pushes the "button". Let's enjoy the Trump circus; that is what the people here wanted; right? An "normal" President would be too boring; no "screaming rally's", no wars, good healthcare, no corruption, everyone happy, equal division of wealth, billionaires taxed properly, clean air, clean water,clean environment, fast modern mass transportation etc. we don't want those. Way too boring!!!

    I haven't given much thought lately to Valerie Plame - but she was in the news again this morning, due to the fact that her former husband, Joseph Wilson, passed away at the age of 69. Wilson was the guy who questioned the decision to invade Iraq in 2003. Plame's identity as a CIA operative was exposed days after Wilson’s criticism of U.S. intelligence that Saddam Hussein was attempting to purchase uranium.

    Wilson drew intense criticism from Republican lawmakers over his statements regarding Iraq in the lead-up to the U.S. invasion. A report by the Senate Intelligence Committee in 2004 pointed to inconsistencies.

    Wilson dismissed those claims, later writing the book “The Politics of Truth.”

    Valerie Plame's biography makes for some very interesting reading:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valerie_Plame

    Financially, she has done very well since she left the CIA, which is why she considered buying Twitter in 2017. Although her fund raising goal fell short, I agree with Dutch that Trump should not be kicked off Twitter simply because he incriminates himself just about every time he sends out a tweet.

    In May 2019, Plame announced her candidacy for the United States House of Representatives for New Mexico's 3rd congressional district in the 2020 elections. She is a Democrat, associated with the progressive wing of the party. She prioritizes national security (with an emphasis on denuclearization), and combating climate change.

    Since Trump has taken some dangerous steps lately about nuclear weapons, and since climate change has suddenly become a HUGE issue *check out Great Thunberg's Facebook page) she will likely get elected in 2020.

    One of our country's most corrupt presidents was Dick Cheney. Officially, he was not actually the president, but he heavily influenced George W. Bush, who commuted Scooter Libby's sentence (Libby, of course, was eventually pardoned by Trump).

    Cheny's former company, Haliburton, made a profit of $39. billion from the Iraq war>

    Th similarity between Bush's administration and Trump's is that neither one cared who they hurt as long as they got their way. On July 14, 2003, Robert Novak, journalist for The Washington Post, using information obtained from Richard Armitage, Karl Rove, and Scooter Libby, revealed in his column her identity as a CIA operative. Legal documents published in the course of the CIA leak grand jury investigation, United States v. Libby, and Congressional investigations, established her classified employment as a covert officer for the CIA at the time when Novak's column was published in July 2003

    In 2017, an American spy was forced to flee Russia after President Trump spilled key classified information. The spy was reportedly a key mole inside the Kremlin whose departure marked a major setback for intelligence efforts.

    In May of 2017, Trump leaked Israeli intelligence about ISIS to Russia.

    U.S. intelligence officials reportedly warned their Israeli counterparts to exert caution in sharing top secret information with Donald Trump's administration for fear of it being passed to Russia and then to Moscow's ally and Israel's arch-enemy, Iran.

    Discussions between U.S. and Israeli security services prior to Trump's inauguration on January 20 gave rise to concerns that sensitive intelligence might exchange hands between him and the Russian government, Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported in January.

    With the mention of Dick, the great white hunter steering the Bush admin., one has to wonder if the same thing is happening with this admin., like maybe far right wing people who aren't part of this admin. any longer, like the people who were let go or left for one reason or another. I'm hoping for expansion of the house's subpoena list.

    And btw, this admin. thinks whistleblowers are spies who should be done away with, very dangerous people in this admin..

    The History Channel mentioned today that New York Times reporter Judith Miller was released on this date in 2005. She had been sent to prison for refusing to reveal a confidential source and testify before a grand jury that was looking into the so-called Plame Affair. She decided to testify after the source she had been protecting, I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney’s chief of staff, signed a waiver giving her permission to speak.

    After 85 days in jail, Miller was released and testified before a grand jury that prior to the Novak column (where Plame was outed) she had several discussions with Scooter Libby in which he talked about Plame. On November 9 of that same year, Miller announced her retirement from the Times after a 28-year career with the newspaper.

    Two quick points:

    1) Protecting sources is a very critical need for a free press. Imagine how different our history would have been if Mark Felt had been identified as "Deep Throat" early in the Watergate.

    2) It is illegal to publicly identify individuals in covert operations. Robert Novak was never convicted for revealing Plame's identity in his Washington Post article because he claimed that he did not know that she was a covert agent, but if you read it (see below) you'll find that his version is a little hard to believe. :

    Protecting whistleblowers is very critical. Seems to me that republicans keep outing people they're not supposed to, it's a pattern of disregard for national interests.
