Over the past few years, you have repeatedly stated that Valerie Plame was "not covert" at the time of her outing because she "had not been stationed abroad within five years" of Robert Novak's article. In explaining this charge, you insist that Ms. Plame did not fall under the statutory definition of "covert" as defined in the 1982 Intelligence Indentities Protection Act; an act that you helped negotiate the terms of as Chief Counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee. In her opening statement yesterday, Ms. Plame testified under oath that in addition to working in Washington, she "also traveled to foreign countries on secret missions to find vital intelligence."
