Valerie Plame Campaign Ad: We Need to Turn Nation Around

It's Plame's campaign bid for the US Congress as a Democrat in New Mexico.

The ad, which is titled, "Undercover", shows liberal activist and ex-CIA operative Plame driving a Chevy Camaro backwards on an empty road in rural New Mexico while narrating her background throughout the ad. Plame, who's real life story inspired the 2010 feature film Fair Game, which starred Naomi Watt as herself, and Sean Penn as her husband, has now delivered her own cinematic masterpiece to voters.

"I was an undercover Central Intelligence Agency operative". I come from Ukrainian Jewish immigrants. My brother nearly died in Vietnam. "My service was cut short when my own government betrayed me".

Plame has levelled allegations against the Bush administration, specifically, former Vice President Dick Cheney's ex-chief of staff Scooter Libby, in statements and in this video.

Antonio Brown not worth it for the Tennessee Titans at veteran minimum
Pittsburgh had essentially four months to prepare for this game and if this was the best they could do, it might be a long season. Gruden and Brown reportedly had a conversation about his future with the team, and Gruden encouraged Brown to focus on football .

Wilson was outspoken in his conviction that the Bush administration's claims of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq were false. Libby was convicted of obstruction of justice and perjury in relation to that leak, and while George W. Bush commuted his sentence to only 30 months, Donald Trump offered him a full pardon previous year.

"You've probably heard my name", she says as the bold letters burst onto the screen. "Mr. President, I've got a few scores to settle". She shifts into reverse to make the point that she's running "because we're going backwards on national security, healthcare, and women's rights". "And yes", she says, "they do teach us how to drive like that in the Central Intelligence Agency". "And yes, the Central Intelligence Agency really does teach us to drive like this", she adds as she walks away from the auto and tears off her sunglasses in a pure action-movie moment.

She's Plame, Valerie Plame - and no, this video isn't the trailer for a new spy drama.
