The wife of former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, who criticized the Bush Administration’s rationale for the war in Iraq, called herself the only covert CIA operative whose identity was disclosed by her "very own government," and said she felt "hit in the gut" on being outted by syndicated columnist Robert Novak.
