Premier Guests: Valerie Plame Wilson and Ambassador Joe Wilson
Washington, DC – NO QUARTER RADIO Live Internet Talk enters new territory with "Security Corner," hosted by Larry Johnson, a discredited CIA officer who is despised by the extremes on both the right and the left. (Must be doing something right!) Larry Johnson joined the CIA the same day as Valerie Plame Wilson and spent a year with fifty other classmates being trained as an intelligence officer. Larry subsequently left the CIA and served in the State Department’s Counter Terrorism Office. He is an expert in counterterrorism. His full biography may be read here.
Tune in to No Quarter Radio (NQR) live on Monday, July 14, 10:00-11:00 a.m. ET as Larry Johnson interviews Valerie Plame Wilson and Joe Wilson. Our guests will be answering listener questions, and the call-in number is (347) 677-0792.
Valerie Plame Wilson is the author of Fair Game: My Life as a Spy, My Betrayal by the White House. Her identity as an undercover CIA operations officer was exposed by top Bush Administration officials after her husband, Ambassador Joe Wilson, blew the whistle on President Bush, who mislead the American people and told them that Iraq had obtained yellow cake uranium.
Valerie Plame Wilson and Larry will chat about the revelations from former Bush press spokesman, Scott McClellan, progress on the upcoming movie about her life, and her thoughts on reforming the CIA. If you want more information about Valerie’s saga, please read these articles, which includes her testimony before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
Joe Wilson is the author of The Politics of Truth: A Diplomat's Memoir: Inside the Lies that Led to War and Betrayed My Wife's CIA Identity.
Larry will get Joe’s take on the movie as well and pick his brain on the U.S.'s next steps in Iraq as well as Barack Obama's changing statements on the Iraq War. Ambassador Wilson has written several articles at Larry Johnson's blog, No Quarter USA. Read all eight of Joseph Wilson's writings posted here at No Quarter with his express permission. Those writings include:
- "Legitimate Questions of Judgment, Experience"
- "The Obama Campaign: Consent of, or Contempt for, the People"
- "Smears and Tears: How Obama's National Security Week Turned Into the Mendacity of Hype"
- "Obama's Shallow Credentials on National Security Are Dangerous for the Country"
