(mbc.net) Immediately preceding the second Gulf War, US diplomat Joseph Wilson (Sean Penn) visited Niger on behalf of the Bush administration, investigating rumors that Iraq had sought supplies from the nation to launch a nuclear program. The claims were false, and Wilson reported so in his findings.
So Wilson was shocked when the president cited his report inaccurately, using it as a pretense for war. He subsequently refuted the administration in a New York Times op-ed piece, causing Bush's cronies to retaliate against his wife, CIA agent Valerie Plame(Naomi Watts) and ruin their previously harmonious marriage.
