July 6, 2005--

Internet's WayBack Machine Archives shed light on controversy involving Judith Miller and Matthew Cooper regarding leak of alleged covert CIA agent status of Joe Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, to Robert Novak.

            While contempt proceedings against New York Times reporter Judith Miller and Time Magazine reporter Matthew Cooper have brought back to center stage the controversy over the alleged "outing" of "Valerie Plame" by Robert Novak on July 14, 2003, the world-wide-web's Archives, aptly named the "WayBack Machine," reveal that at least six months before Robert Novak's July 14, 2003, column which Joe Wilson (Joseph C. Wilson, IV) claimed had "outed" the identify of his wife, Valerie Plame, as a "covert agent" for the CIA, the February 8, 2003 version of Wilson's own website touting his foreign relations expertise as a former U.S. Ambassador as well as a former advisor on the National Security Council staff during the Clinton Administration had identified his wife as "the former Valerie Plame" and thereby compromised any alleged continuation of her status as a "covert" agent of the CIA.  Thus, unless her "covert" role had been to pose as a traitorous wife of a formerly high-ranking U.S. official internationally known (and self-touted) as a former U.S. Ambassador and former aide for the U.S. National Security Council, Wilson's own website's identification of his wife as "the former Valerie Plame" would have compromised her covert status in the minds of all but the most stupid foreign-intelligence agents since only the most stupid ones would never have followed the simple expedient to conducting an internet search for the name "Valerie Plame" to determine whether such person might be other than who she would have purported to be in dealing with them (in her "covert" capacity purporting not to be serving, or loyal to, American interests, officials or agencies).  It's not as though her name were "Sally Smith" or "Jane Doe."

            If the circumstances were different such that the complaining person were to have been a pro-Bush former Ambassador and National Security Council aide and Robert Novak were to have been Paul Krugman, the dominant media's attention on the controversy would have focused on the fact the complaining former-ambassador's/former-NSC-aide's website's having previously identified his wife by name would have already hopelessly compromised any "covert" status she may have had long before a Paul Krugman article could have done so.  The dominant media would be portraying such former official's complaint as nothing more than partisan sniping.

            With respect to the actual circumstances, it's likely that Novak's July 14, 2003, description of Valerie Plame as a "CIA opeative" was only news outside the intelligence communities (including those of our adversaries) and the Georgetown cocktail circuit because only the ill-informed in those communities and social circles were unaware that she had formerly served as a "covert" agent and was currently serving only as an "analyst" on issues involving weapons of mass destruction.  This has been obvious from the get-go as was explained in PoliSat.Com's September 30, 2003, installment.  What a tempest in a teapot.

P.S. from Editor:  

By the way, use the logo and link for "Take Back the Memorial" (right) for information about how you can support the effort to "Take Back" the 9-11 Memorial from the politically-correct crowd now planning to overshadow the Memorial with a "museum" chronicling the sins of America as though they were relevant to the current war against the medieval, totalitarian, perverted version of Islam being peddled by al Qaeda et al.
