Join Us for a "Fair Game" Screening in NYC Next Week!

By Ateqah Khaki at 5:49pm

If you're in New York next week, join us for a showing of Fair Game, a new film about Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame, followed by an exclusive Q&A with the ACLU and Director Doug Liman.

As we told you last week, Fair Game tells the story of Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame. When Wilson, a former U.S. diplomat, exposed one of the many false claims made by the Bush administration in the lead-up to the war in Iraq, Plame (Wilson's wife and a covert CIA operative), was outed in an effort to retaliate against Wilson.

The film raises many important questions about secrets and illustrates the importance of whistleblowers at a time when government secrecy is increasingly the norm, and transparency the exception.

Doug Liman, who also directed The Bourne Identity, will participate in a Q&A after the film with ACLU Executive Director, Anthony D. Romero, and Jameel Jaffer, ACLU's Director for the Center for Democracy. We hope to see you there!
