Press Club members hear Valerie Plame Wilson and Amb. Joe Wilson at Maryville
Press Club members had front reserved seating at the Nov. 29 talk by Valerie Plame Wilson and Joe Wilson. She was a covert CIA operative and he was an American Ambassador and diplomat to Africa and Iraq; his 2003 New York Times op-ed piece suggesting the Iraqi nuclear threat had been exaggerated allegedly resulted in the exposure of her identity as a CIA agent working in counter-proliferation. Their story is told in the motion picture Fair Game. The Wilsons spoke at length about how the announcement in President George W. Bush’s state of the nation speech asserting Iraq was obtaining uranium from Africa for weapons of mass destruction was used to sell the Iraqi war to the American people. “A fool’s errand”, said Wilson, resulting in 4,000 Americans being killed and 10,000 injured or traumatized to date. He criticized the Washington media for not demanding more answers. He spoke out because he believes it is the right of the American people to know the truth and to demand it from its government.
