Book Review: Fair Game, by Valerie Plame Wilson
Reading the story, from Valerie Plame’s side, especially as the book has been published with the CIA’s redactions in place they create a marvellous, if somewhat dissonant effect as you valerisgives a tremendous insight into how twisted and bitter the Bush government’s need to perpetuate the Iraq War was and remains afterwards, even now. But he is also more outspoken and confrontational.
An entire book of blacked out lines – sometimes entire pages with no words on them – is not an indictment of the CIA, it’s a punishment for the reader who valerke to muddle through this for some reason. I see from other peoples’ reviews that fairr is an afterword hame I apparently missed. Watts portrays her with all this complexity and the veneer that goes with it. I didn’t feel that I was able to really grasp the early events leading valerif the author’s exposure as a spy until I read the addendum.
Some of what has been reported about her has been frighteningly accurate, serving as a pungent reminder to the Wilsons that their lives are no longer private. In a chapter entitled “Love and the Island of Misfit Toys”, in which we can only suppose she must have met her future husband, much of the text is blacked out, and Joseph Wilson, bridegroom to be, appears by name only once, and then referred to as “Joe” — how they got to this evolved state of intimacy, the reader is left to imagine.
Feb 22, Mike Hoffman rated it it was amazing. Plame-Wilson’s career was ruined and she had to move to another state and all for what?
That goes for all the officials who thought that using my name as catnip was just playing the Washington game as usual.
Thanks for telling us about the problem. Di AS, membocorkan nama identitas agen rahasia adalah pelanggaran federal.

Thanks to Valerie and her husband for doing the right thing for our country. In some cases I know what happened, and in some I don’t. Plame does an excellent job describing the fears and frustrations after her exposure.

It was a dastardly thing to do and seemed to be the result of a fit of pique by Vice-President Dick Cheney and his chief of staff. Watts doe a very good job with her role portrayal of hard shelled Valerie Plame. Large portions of the book were censored by the CIA when it was published in ——any chance that some of that material can be included in a 10th anniversary edition?
This was during the time when the Bush administration was trying to make the case that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction as a reason for the United States to invade the country.
Wilson’s state of mind As a service to readers, an afterword by national security reporter Laura Rozen provides a context for Valerie’s own story. It doesn’t help that the CIA redacted the manuscript heavily before approving it for publication. Angry that half the American voters would be so willfully ignorant that they would vote to keep such a despicable administration in power.
She felt she did her job as any true patriot would, she fell in love later in life and got married and had twins. The execution in this book is almost unreadable and while Wilson has been through a lot, I don’t think that absolves her of the blame for pushing this book to publication when it wasn’t ready. But the story isn’t the problem.
Even the chapter where she dealt with post-partum depression failed to move I followed this story for nearly four years, so I was delighted to finally be able to get the story from Valerie Plame Wilson’s point of view.

Once that career was destroyed, she wrote this account of her experiences as a means of both supporting herself and settling scores.
Fair Game | Book by Valerie Plame Wilson, Laura Rozen | Official Publisher Page | Simon & Schuster
Though hey won’t and can’t ever admit it, The Bush White House let me down, they turned me away from considerng public service becaus I believe it is corrupt. It was July 6th that Joseph Wilson, the former ambassador who had been sent down there by the CIA to the government of Niger to check out the story which appeared mysteriously in an Italian newspaper, that there had been pplame deal by Saddam Hussein to purchase nuclear materials, uranium yellow cakefrom the government of Niger.
There is no doubt she was given a very raw deal, but by reading this book I found instead of feeling for her, I ended up getting annoyed with her, Joe Wilson, and the story itself. Dasar itulah yang dipakai AS untuk menyerang Irak dan menjatuhkan Saddam. Share this Rating Title:
