Agent No Longer Out of Sight
CIA officer in leak case attends event

Washington - CIA officer Valerie Plame stepped out of the shadows yesterday for the first time since two senior Bush administration officials allegedly blew her cover.

Her normally flamboyant husband, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, briefly choked up at a lunch in his honor, telling his wife of five years he would trade his recent notoriety "in a minute if I could give you back your anonymity."

Plame did not address the gathering, where Wilson was awarded a $10,000 "truth-telling" prize for his revelations about President George W. Bush's now discredited claim that Iraq was trying to buy uranium in Africa. The prize was given by a foundation affiliated with The Nation, a liberal weekly magazine.

She declined to be interviewed, but did acknowledge that the whole experience had been "surreal" for someone who had spent "her whole career trying to stay out of the limelight."
