Friday, July 22, 2005 – “At a hearing co-chaired by Rep. Waxman and Senator Byron Dorgan, several former intelligence officials testify about the damage to national security caused by the White House outing of covert CIA official Valerie Plame Wilson.”
“This investigation is a result of the CIA asking the Justice Department to conduct a criminal investigation. Why would the CIA have done that?…Protecting the identity of covert agents representing this country in the gathering of intelligence is critically important. In fact, the identifying of a covert agent can be a very serious breach of national security. The identifying of a covert agent who’s collecting intelligence for this country can also put lives at risk and lives in danger.”
