NYTimes Outs Valerie Plame Book Deal

Valerie Plame Seeks Book Deal

Published: May 4, 2006

Valerie Plame Wilson, the Central Intelligence Agency covert [LMAO!!!] officer whose name was publicly disclosed three years ago, is shopping a book proposal among a small group of publishers, according to two people familiar with the project.

Both people were granted anonymity because their publishing companies have signed nondisclosure agreements about the content of the proposal.

The leak of Ms. Wilson's name, which first appeared in a column by Robert D. Novak, the syndicated columnist, produced a full-scale Washington scandal. Investigations are continuing into the identity of the person who told Mr. Novak, and possibly others in the media, about Ms. Wilson.

Joseph C. Wilson IV, Ms. Wilson's husband and a former diplomat who was a vocal critic of the Bush administration's handling of prewar intelligence in advance of the invasion of Iraq, called the leak a smear campaign by the White House against the couple in retaliation for Mr. Wilson's criticisms. Mr. Wilson, who had gone to Africa to investigate whether Saddam Hussein's regime had attempted to buy uranium, found no evidence that it had [Good grief! *insert rolleyes emoticon here*].

Ms. Wilson has remained virtually silent throughout the leak investigation, though she did pose with her husband for a photograph in Vanity Fair. No details were available about the contents of her proposed book.


My informant sources have leaked to Sparks from the Anvil, an advanced cover of the book:

Heh! The book cover is priceless!

If you want to get famous in this country all you have to do is commit a dastardly crime of some sort and then you can get a book deal. The people getting books published don't care that there's a difference between being "infamous or famous", as long as they make money off of it. The people buying books written by such people are also part of the problem. There seems to be a certain mindset in this country that worships the criminals. Bonnie and Clyde, Jesse James and many others are thought of as heroes by many. There's a societal sickness out there which seems to be spreading like wildfire.
