A former U.S. Ambassador whose wife's C.I.A. identity was outed by the Bush administration was in Greenville Tuesday.

Joseph Wilson held a lecture at ECU talking about the first amendment and responsibility of citizenship.

Wilson was one of the first to challenge President Bush on his reasons for going to war by announcing he though the administration was hyping Iraq's nuclear threat and misleading the public.

Shortly after, his wife, Valerie Plame's secret identity as a C.I.A. officer was revealed by White House Officials. Wilson says citizens need to hold their government accountable for its actions, and it's time for the next generation to step up.

Actor Sean Penn just signed on to play Joseph Wilson in Fair Game, the movie version of his wife's book.
