It was fascinating to catch a glimpse of the life of a CIA agent. It makes me want to read more books about the CIA. I wouldn't have ordinarily picked it up to read--that's why I love book club where everybody reads what one person has chosen.

Of course the book is written from the perspective of Valerie Wilson, the spy whose covert identity was outed by the White House for political reasons, but it helps to clear up the issue I heard a little about in the news years ago.

It also helps to clear up for me why people were so angry at George W. Bush and his administration, and why many think his reason for war (WMDs in Iraq) was unfounded.

All in all, it is amazing the amount of beurocracy that must be cut through and careful, precise, communication that must be understood, among many huge government entities, to avoid catastrophes... like war.
