On July 6, 2003, four months after the U.S. invaded Iraq, former ambassador Joseph Wilson’s editorial piece, “What I Didn’t Find in Africa,” appeared in The New York Times. A week later, journalist Robert Novak revealed in his newspaper column that the ambassador’s wife, Valerie Plame Wilson, was a CIA operative.
