Head of CIA Says Valerie Wilson Was A Covert Officer

Apparently, Victoria Toensing still wants to argue what the meaning of "covert" is.

But according to Gen Hayden, current head of the CIA, Valerie Plame Wilson was a covert CIA agent at the time that her name was published by Robert Novak.  Rep. Henry Waxman read a prepared statement today — prepared with the express approval of the head of the CIA and reviewed therewith — that substantiated the fact that Valerie Plame Wilson was a covert CIA officer, working on classified WMD issues for the CIA and the national security fo the United States.

Valerie Plame Wilson was able to go into a little more detail in her own testimony today.  If you missed Valerie Plame Wilson's testimony this morning, the wonderful folks at PoliticsTV have YouTube'd it so that we can all watch.
