Former CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson was born in Anchorage, Alaska on April 19, 1963. She received a B.A. in advertising from Pennsylvania State University in 1985 and two Master's degrees from the London School of Economics and Political Science and the College of Europe in Bruges, Belgium. She worked as a classified covert intelligence agent for the CIA for over twenty years. She married former Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV in 1998 and had twins in 2000. She was chosen to be the Director of Operations for the Joint Task Force on Iraq and it was her job to mount the operations that would discover if there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. On July 14, 2003, her covert identity was exposed and ended her career. Her experiences before and after the outing are recounted in her autobiography Fair Game: My Life as a Spy, My Betrayal by the White House, in which the CIA redacted about 10% of the book.
