Reporters will reveal what outed CIA officer did for agency

A detailed accounting of the work of CIA officer Valerie Plame Wilson -- the outed agent at the center of the CIA leak scandal -- could break open as soon as today in The Nation, according to an individual familiar with the story.

The 'Plame' scandal, which resulted after a conservative columnist outed Valerie Plame Wilson as a CIA officer in the wake of her husband's critique of the Bush Administration's Iraq WMD intelligence, has embroiled the Administration in a two-year public relations battle to assert that the outing was not connected with her husband's critique.

I. Lewis Libby, Vice President Cheney's erstwhile chief of staff, was indicted last fall for covering up his role in the affair. Karl Rove, Deputy White House chief of staff, faced five appearances before the grand jury investigating the case but was not charged.
