Her assignments required posing in various professional roles in order to gather intelligence more effectively. Two of her covers include serving as a junior consular officer in the early 1990s in Athens and then later as an energy analyst for the private company Brewster Jennings & Associates which the CIA later acknowledged was a front company for certain investigations.
  • A former senior diplomat in Athens remembered Plame in her dual role and also recalled that she served as one of the control officers coordinating the visit of President George H. W.
