  •  Are you sure she didn't use the ONE name (none)
    Wilson since 1998 (the year of her marriage) in both of her roles (energy consultant and agent)?

    That is, perhaps before 1998 she was Plame at Brewster-Jennings and after 1998 she was Wilson at Brewster-Jennings. AND perhaps the same thing is true at the agency also, Plame until name of Wilson after 1998.

    Some folks who haven't worked with her for several years would still call her Plame by habit. Novak probably has sources in the agency too (speculating).  He's been known to have intelligence sources in the past, hasn't he? Just like William Safire also who was connected to intelligence people; it came thru (carefully) in Safire's columns over the years.

    Why Novak would write about her as V. Plame instead of Valerie Plame Wilson or Valerie Wilson, I can't say.  A CYA perhaps for everyone (if Plame is not her current name anymore) ?? (A CYA that didn't quite work successfully.)

    Finally, coverage tonight on CBS evening news by Gloria Borger emphasized her name from a memo as "Valerie Wilson."  Chris Matthews also called her Valerie Wilson tonight.  The court documents call her every which name, Wilson, Plame,   Wilson Plame  and Plame Wilson.
