A declassified summary of Valerie Plame’s employment history at the CIA disclosed for the first time today in a court filing that Plame was indeed “covert” when her name became public in July 2003, via columnist Robert Novak.
The summary was part of an attachment to prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald’s recommendation that I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby spend up to three years in prison for obstructing the CIA leak investigation.
The summary states, “Ms. Wilson was a covert CIA employee for who the CIA was taking affirmative measures to conceal her intelligence relationship to the United States.”
Plame worked as an operations officer in the Directorate of Operations and was assigned to the Counterproliferation Division (CPD) in January 2002 at CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia.
