Valerie Plame Wilson knocks Cheneys

(CNN) - Former CIA covert operations officer Valerie Plame Wilson, whose identity was revealed during a 2003 scandal regarding intelligence-gathering prior to the Iraq war, took a swipe Wednesday at a group backing GOP Senate candidate Liz Cheney.

Plame Wilson tweeted out a New York Times article about Cheney's father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, who's speaking at an upcoming fundraiser in Washington for a new super PAC that supports his daughter's Senate bid.

"This article is the epitome of Washington insiderdom," she wrote.

The former Vice President, who Plame Wilson accuses of being involved in the leaking of her identity, has been supportive of Liz Cheney's bid against incumbent GOP Sen. Mike Enzi in Wyoming.

In October, Cheney predicted his daughter would win, and he came to her defense in a recent public spat between Liz and her sister, Mary, over their differences on same-sex marriage.

Mary is a lesbian who married a woman last year, while Liz says she opposes same-sex marriage.

    Dick Cheney should have been tried for treason for what he did to a CIA agent he had a beef with. The fact that he is still alive and a free man makes me want to vomit. GOD will have the final..

    The GOPs best and finest. He destroyed a CIA agents career and put the lives of her sources and informants at risk in order to take the US to war. His company then received a no-bid contract and racked in huge profits. I wonder if he ever visits our wounded vets and thank them for their to service to the Country and Haliburton?

    Nothing lend credibility to your voice like absolute denial of a fact, someone was prosecuted for this, I'm pretty sure it happened, not to worry, you had zero credibility anyway, no harm, but you do seem a tad confused on every subject. I really wonder whether your being paid, or you actually believe your BS? I hope for your sake your being compensated for your troubles, taking a beating everyday by facts and record must be exhausting way to make a buck.
