Valerie Plame Retweets Article Which Outs CIA Officer

BTW, Plame wasn't really undercover -- real undercover CIA agents don't drive to work at the CIA headquarters every morning -- but this woman seems to be.

Maybe she just wants more attention.

She seemed to really, really like attention.

Was Bikowiski Undercover?> She was, though some reporters had "deduced" her identity in 2001, and she now has a wikipedia page.

She was cited by the Washington Post as being involved in a "critical intelligence failure:"


However, Glenn Greenwald sure thinks he's breaking new ground in publicly naming her as the CIA's "Queen of Torture."

NBC News yesterday called her a "key apologist" for the CIA’s torture program. A follow-up New Yorker article dubbed her "The Unidentified Queen of Torture” and in part "the model for the lead character in 'Zero Dark Thirty.'"Yet in both articles she was anonymous.

The person described by both NBC and The New Yorker is senior CIA officer Alfreda Frances Bikowsky. Multiple news outlets have reported that as the result of a long string of significant errors and malfeasance, her competence and integrity are doubted -- even by some within the agency.

The Intercept is naming Bikowsky over CIA objections because of her key role in misleading Congress about the agency’s use of torture, and her active participation in the torture program (including playing a direct part in the torture of at least one innocent detainee). Moreover, Bikowsky has already been publicly identified by news organizations as the CIA officer responsible for many of these acts.

In addition, Greenwald and his flying monkeys were all congratulating each other on having the courage (ahem) to name the name.

So yes, it does appear that Valerie Plame helped "out" a CIA agent whose previous work exposes her to vengeance and peril.
