At the end of April, Ambassador Joe Wilson will release a book naming the White House advisors he blames for ruining the careers of CIA operatives, including Valerie Plame, Joe Wilson’s wife.


Wilson’s story began when Vice President Dick Cheney sent him to Niger to investigate a claim of Uranium being shipped to Iraq. Wilson determined the claim was unfounded, but the President’s State of the Union speech before the war included it anyway. After Wilson publicly criticized the speech, the White House retaliated, and a federal grand jury is now trying to determine who in the administration leaked his wife’s identity to reporters and whether the case warrants criminal charges.
