Après L’affaire Plame

Wilson gloats about Rove.

ShareThis

Joseph Wilson, a.k.a. Mr. Valerie Plame, had good reason to be elated last Wednesday as the couple popped into town for a Tribeca Film Festival party. “Karl Rove just went before the grand jury for the fifth time!” he crowed. “I don’t know what will happen to him. But my question is, how many do-overs do you get to revise your testimony? Surely this sets some sort of record.” He appreciates the Times’ “anguished mea culpa” over its mistakes relating to l’affaire Plame, contrasting it with the Washington Post, which he thinks “is still spouting nonsense and reflects the hubris” of that city: “In Washington, the default reaction if you’re wrong is to gut it out.” Does Plame have CIA withdrawal? “You’d have to ask her, and she’s not talking. Whatever sense of career loss she has—we don’t talk about it much—her time is taken up by the responsibilities of raising 6-year-old twins.” The kids are supportive. “We’ve been to the International Spy Museum. My son is always saying, ‘My mommy’s a better secret agent than James Bond.’ ”
