Background to Betrayal:Behind the CIA leak investigation by Justin Raimondo connects the dots between the players in the outing of under cover CIA officer Valerie Plame and the front company that afforded her and her colleagues the ability to work clandestinely on nuclear, biologocal and chemical weapon proliferation issues throughout the world.

There are quite a few links to explore in this piece I recommend, but we are looking at complexities behind a simple issue; a web of deceit that when waded through offers a startling and undeniable overview, a perspective that you will not gain from a 45 second evening news segment- a perspective that the NY Times will not illustrate or admit. Please take the time to read the article, follow down links and gain the context for understanding.
