Valerie Plame Casually Tweets 'America's Jews Are Driving America's Wars'

Outed former CIA officer-turned-anti-Trump activist Valerie Plame was accused of anti-Semitism on Thursday when she tweeted an article from UNZ Review that stated that America's Jews are responsible for wars.

In an effort to save face, Plame defended the tweet because she's of Jewish descent and that a lot of American neoconservatives are Jewish.

However, when one follows Plame's advice and reads the entire article...it becomes fairly apparent that there's some pretty offensive stuff in there. Namely, that Jewish people should be labeled as "Jewish" when appearing on television.

In later tweets, Plame said she "messed up" and focused only on the "neocon criticism" in the piece. This is odd, considering she had chided Twitter users for not reading the entire article just hours earlier. 

However, this is questionable as she's retweeted many things from the same site before, all with similar themes.

As a reminder, Plame is the same person who (sort-of) attempted to buy Twitter in order to delete President Donald Trump's account due to the "horrible things" the president has done on the site. It's unclear as to whether anti-Semitism counts in Plame's mind as a "horrible thing."
