Via AMERICAblog, this is quite shocking.
BLITZER: I can speak as a reporter here in Washington for 30 years. I did not know that Valerie Plame-Wilson was a covert officer. I didn’t even know that Joe Wilson was married at the time.
I’m not sure it was all that widely known what she did, what she didn’t do. The fact of the matter is, she had been what they call a knock.
BLITZER: She was out there on her own, working as a clandestine officer, pretending to be an energy consultant, a private citizen, when, in fact, she was an employee of the U.S. government. She was a clandestine officer working for the CIA.
And that’s very dangerous work. And to release that kind of information obviously not only can compromise her, but can compromise a lot of people who might be working and cooperating with the CIA.
