Shhhhhh! Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson Story Being Turned Into A Movie
Valerie Plame has written a book, which the Bush-run CIA has yet to approve. But even if it's censored, there will be a Warner Bros. feature about her life and the scandal of outing her -- the movie can be based on the public record already available. Of course, the right will pillory a woman who claimed her cover was broken and national security was endangered but then posed for a Vanity Fair feature and is now making a movie. But, uh, the cat's already out of the bag, isn't it? So the only harm that could be done is to people who want to pretend she didn't serve overseas in the most dangerous assignments an agent can take and that it was treasonous to out her for political purposes. More importantly, who will play Valerie and Joe?
