Valerie Wilson a.K.a. Valerie Plame

From Wizbang via Instapundit:

“So, via Who’s Who, the name ‘Valerie Plame’ has been associated publicly with Joe Wilson since the Clinton era – nice secret…”

Yes, and you see what this means? It means that for years, anyone who met Valerie Plame while she was “under cover” posing as an energy analyst for a private company could have very easily found out from the most open of sources that she was married to an American diplomat.

You think that might have made them a tad suspicious that she could have some kind of link to the U.S. government? Nah!

Again, what this really suggests is that the agency’s tradecraft had become as sloppy as its analysis.

Is it getting better now, in the Goss/Negroponte era?

I could tell you – but then I’d have to kill you.
