SANTA FE — No longer able to fly under the radar, betrayed American spy Valerie Plame Wilson left her life in Washington, D.C., and moved with her family to Santa Fe earlier this year.Plame Wilson, 44, spoke of her veiled life fighting terrorism, the sudden glare of public attention following the scandalous leak of her identity, and her legal case pending against White House officials, during a talk and book signing hosted by Garcia Street Books Tuesday evening at the Lensic.Author and journalist Jonathan Richards introduced Plame Wilson, calling her “a very gutsy lady – a lady whose courage is an inspiration to us all.”“I’m Valerie Plame Wilson and I’ve got a story to tell you,” she said as she took the podium. “It’s been a really long time getting here: four-and-a-half-years.She told the packed theater that in the CIA she got to jump out of airplanes, fire a variety of automatic weapons and other exciting things.In her new book, “Fair Game - My Life as a Spy, My Betrayal by the White House,” in which many passages are blacked out by the CIA, Plame Wilson details her recruitment by the CIA and instruction in the spying arts, including pursuit driving, blowing up cars, AK-47 rifle proficiency and steganography.
