Plame's Iran Connection

Very interesting report from Raw Story about Valerie Plame's connection to Iran.

According to current and former intelligence officials, Plame Wilson, who worked on the clandestine side of the CIA in the Directorate of Operations as a non-official cover (NOC) officer, was part of an operation tracking distribution and acquisition of weapons of mass destruction technology to and from Iran.

Speaking under strict confidentiality, intelligence officials revealed heretofore unreported elements of Plame's work. Their accounts suggest that Plame's outing was more serious than has previously been reported and carries grave implications for U.S. national security and its ability to monitor Iran's burgeoning nuclear program.

While many have speculated that Plame was involved in monitoring the nuclear proliferation black market, specifically the proliferation activities of Pakistan's nuclear "father," A.Q. Khan, intelligence sources say that her team provided only minimal support in that area, focusing almost entirely on Iran.

Justin Raimondo thinks this was part of a plan. He suggests that the combination of Valerie Plame's exposure and the leak of the cracking of Iran's encryption scheme (by the US) suggests a planned "blinding" of US intelligence with regard to Iran.

He further backs this up by noting that there were attempts to connect Iran with Uranium shipments as far back as 2003, and that blinding US intelligence would make this scheme harder to expose.
