Judith Miller in Jail

"It was Miller, more than any other reporter, who helped the White House sell its WMD-in-Iraq hokum to the American public. Relying on the repeatedly discredited Ahmad Chalabi and her carefully cultivated administration contacts, Miller wrote story after story on the supposedly imminent threat posed by Saddam Hussein."

There is a little justice in the world after all. Judith Miller is going to jail. She is the New York Times reporter who helped make the occupation of Iraq a reality. She and her newspaper committed a great crime that resulted in the deaths of thousands of people.

Miller is going to the gray bar hotel because she helped in the outing of CIA operative Valerie Plame after Plame's husband, Joseph Wilson, revealed the Bush administration lies about Iraq's nuclear capability. Wilson had this to say about Miller.

"The real victims of this cover-up, which may have turned criminal, are the Congress, the Constitution and, most tragically, the Americans and Iraqis who have paid the ultimate price for Bush’s folly."

Have fun Judy.
