"Fair Game" is an important read for multiple reasons. Valerie Plame Wilson was severely wronged by Vice President Cheney's Chief of Staff Lewis "Scooter" Libby. Libby was found guilty and sentenced to prison. He ruined Wilson's career and risked her life. All that is fact.

What also makes the story interesting is that President Trump felt it was necessary to pardon Libby. Why? Even President George W. Bush, after a thorough review of the case, declined to issue Libby a pardon. Some, including me, believe that Trump was sending his people a message - "You protect me, and I will protect you."

Valerie Wilson and her husband weathered the full attack of the most powerful government in the world. They did so because they knew they were in the right. Others helped them for the same reason. This is a powerful story.

This is an autobiography of a CIA agent betryed by her own government.

Valerie Palme Wilson sets the record straight and provides an extraordinary account of her upbringing, training, and work experiences.

Heavily censored; it is hard to read as the continuity (of thought) is completely lost.
