In this episode Matt Crawford speaks to Valerie Plame about her book Fair Game and her career in the CIA. Valerie Plame was outed as a covert agent by Scooter Libby who was convicted, had his sentence commuted by President Bush and then pardoned by President Trump. A truly thrilling book about real life intrigue that put U.S agents and assets at risk. All because Valerie Plame's husband Joe Wilson refuted the evidence for the U.S to go to war with Iraq. Even more prescient in the current political climate. A truly cautionary tale.
