Plame Declared "Covert" in Court Documents

One of the most hotly disputed loose ends in the Valerie Plame case surfaces in Scooter Libby's sentencing. Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald says she was indeed covert. From Newsweek:

In new court filings, special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald has finally resolved one of the most disputed issues at the core of the long-running CIA leak controversy: Valerie Plame Wilson, he asserts, was a “covert” CIA officer who repeatedly traveled overseas using a “cover identity” in order to disguise her relationship with the agency.

Mr Fitzgerald is seeking three to five years in prison for Mr Libby. He was convicted last year on four of five counts of lying to federal agents and a grand jury. (Newsweek)
