#37 Valerie Plame

As a spy, Valerie Plame’s job was for nobody to know her identity.  All that changed when members of George W. Bush’s administration outed her to a reporter in retaliation for her husband public criticism of the Bush administration’s use of intelligence in the run-up to the Iraq War.  Simply, her life as she knew it, was ruined.  In the years since, she rebuilt her life and using what she learned in her years as a CIA operative, has become outspoken about issues concerning cyber security and nuclear threat, among others.  Her experience from 2003 is eerily relevant to events happening today.
