It was a day of Hot Topics today -- and the co-hosts spoke about all the events that made headlines over the weekend.
Joining the table was the former CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson. Before Valerie spoke about the scandal, in which her name was leaked to the press, she told us just how one goes about becoming a spy. Her story broke in 2003, when White House officials leaked her name to the media and ended her CIA career. She shared that she believes her cover was blown because her husband, former diplomat Joseph Wilson, criticized the Bush administrationâs policy on Iraq. Valerie also spoke about the new documentary sheâs in called Countdown to Zero -- a film that makes the case for eliminating all nuclear weapons. She feels that not only do we have to worry about Ira,n but she believes Al Qaeda and Bin Laden are determined to get nuclear weapons and use them on the United States. Countdown to Zero will be in select theaters this Friday; you can also visit takepart.com for more information on this topic.
