Watch clips from the Committee’s hearing with Valerie Plame last year:

Chairman Henry Waxman:
“This was an extraordinarily serious breach of our national security. President George W. Bush’s father, the former President Bush, said – and I quote – ‘I have nothing but contempt and anger for those who expose the names of our sources. They are, in my view, the most insidious of traitors.'”
Former covert CIA Agent Valerie Plame:
“All of my efforts on behalf of the national security of the United States, all of my training, all of the value of my years of service were abruptly ended when my name and identity were exposed irresponsibly.”
