WayBack Machine's Archives of Internet/World-Wide-Web expose Valerie Plame's pre-Novak-column role as political mole to help Joe Wilson promote John Kerry's campaign against George W. Bush. ·
Proper application of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure would impose Rule 11 sanctions against Joseph Wilson, IV and Valerie Plame (hereafter, "Wilson/Plame") for their spurious law suit alleging Dick Cheney, Karl Rove and others "exposed" and/or "conspired to expose" what Wilson/Plame falsely allege was an "undercover" status of Plame's employment at the CIA at the time of Robert Novak's July 14, 2003, column identifying her by name, "Valerie Plame," as Wilson's wife and reciting that it was upon her recommendation as a CIA employee that the CIA had dispatched Wilson to Niger to "investigate" intelligence reports that Saddam Hussein had sought to make arrangements to acquire uranium from Niger. Why does their filing such suit warrant Rule 11 sanctions against them? It's because they know the foundational premise for their suit to be false.
Wilson/Plame know that years before Novak's July 14, 2003, column actions of others in our intelligence community had compromised her then-covert status as "Valerie Plame." Long before Novak's column, Wilson had either defied CIA restrictions against, or obtained CIA permission for, his touting her extremely uncommon maiden name, "Valerie Plame" (also her "covert" name) as the maiden name of his wife on his website touting himself internationally as a former "Ambassador" for the United States as part of his curriculum vitae for consulting work in international relations. Wilson/Plame knew that absent the true status of "Valerie Plame" having already become compromised, Wilson's identifying her (extremely uncommon) name as his wife's maiden name on his website touting his expertise in international affairs as a former ambassador for the U.S. would have enabled non-stupid adversaries with rudimentary internet skills to "connect the dots" to discern that person known to them as "Valerie Plame" was married to someone touting himself as a loyal agent of the U.S.-- i.e., that her true status was something other than what she had purported it to be.
Thus, if Wilson/Plame were to have genuinely believed she was still serving in a covert capacity and were to have genuinely believed that for her "true" identity to be discerned by adversaries would pose a danger to her safety and/or the safety of her children, then Wilson would not have identified his wife on his website other than as "Mrs. Joseph Wilson, IV." Therefore, his having identified her (extremely uncommon) maiden name (which he knew she had used as her "covert" name) as the maiden name of his wife makes it self-evident that Wilson/Plame either: (a) knew that her true status had already been exposed and that she was no longer a "covert" operative or (b) were carelessly, recklessly, stupidly and/or criminally indifferent to common-sense precautions that they would have been legally obliged to take if they were to have still believed that her status remained "covert."
Shortly after the Novak column, Wilson removed from his website his prior identification of his wife as "the former Valerie Plame." However, he apparently did not know that an internationally recognized, independent "archive" of the internet had already permanently preserved the version of that website page as it existed before he altered it. The name for that internet archive is the "WayBack Machine," named after the fictional device used by the Bullwinkle cartoon's dog "scientist" named "Peabody" as a time-travel machine to allow "Peabody" and "Sherman" to travel back into the archives of history. The url address for the WayBack Machine is: http://www.waybackmachine.org/. The WayBack Machine url's for displaying the the February 8, 2003, version of Wilson's website preserved for posterity in the archives of the internet are here·º¹· and here·º²·. No matter how much Wilson/Plame may try to claim to the contrary, the WayBack Machine is not a tool of Dick Cheney, Karl Rove or Scooter Libby, nor is any of them an "agent" of the WayBack Machine. Nor is there any "conspiracy" among Peabody, Sherman, Bullwinkle or Rocky to expose Wilson's and Plame's mendacity.
This is not the sole example of Wilson's and Plame's mendacity in claiming that Novak's July 14, 2003, column had "outed" her as an "undercover" agent for the CIA. There are many more. For examples, see an October 5, 2005, Weekly Standard article,·º³· one of many articles from a variety of sources exposing the facts.
The true nature of her "status" that was really "blown" by, or in the wake of, Novak's July 14, 2003, column was her status as a political mole operating inside the Bush administration on behalf of Wilson as a staunch supporter of John Kerry in a bitter campaign against Bush. The real story is about how a CIA employee used her status at the Agency to confer superficial credibility upon actions by her husband to propagate falsehoods and disinformation in an attempt to discredit Bush in order to help Bush's opponent, John Kerry. It's the real story to which the dominant media (a.k.a. "MSM") prefer not to draw attention.
