Subject of C.I.A. Leak Testifies on Capitol Hill

Valerie Plame speaks:
Valerie Plame Wilson testified today that the career she loved as an undercover C.I.A. agent was “over in an instant” when her role was disclosed in the summer of 2003.

Speaking in public for the first time about the episode that touched off a scandal in the Bush administration, Ms. Wilson told a House committee that her undercover status “was not common knowledge on the Georgetown cocktail circuit,” as some people have suggested. Nor did she recommend her husband for a now-famous trip to Africa as some of the couple’s critics have asserted, Ms. Wilson said.
