Valerie Plame

The covert CIA officer made headlines in 2003 when Washington Post's Robert Novak outed her in a column. But how did Novak become privy to this information? And was this some kind of retaliation against Plame's husband, Joseph Wilson, a U.S. ambassador? Eventually I. Scooter Libby, Vice President Cheney's chief of staff, was convicted on two counts of perjury, making false statements and obstruction of justice after he shared information with New York Times reporter Judith Miller. Plame wrote a memoir, and Naomi Watts starred in a movie about her.
