11-18-11: Valerie Plame Wilson and Joe Wilson
Hard to believe it’s been nine years. The George W. Bush administration was preparing to invade Iraq, and former diplomat Joe Wilson accused the White House of lying about a key piece of intelligence it was using to make its case. Within a week, Wilson’s wife, Valerie Plame, an undercover CIA operative, had been outed by a newspaper columnist, and their lives were turned upside down.
If it sounds fresher than nine years, you may have seen or heard about the movie based on their memoirs–Fair Game–which came out a year ago.
The Wilsons are coming to Baltimore Tuesday for the Baltimore Speakers Series presented by Stevenson University, sponsored by WYPR.
The Wilsons will will speak at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore on Tuesday night at 8pm. More details at the Baltimore Speakers Series website.
