Judith Miller revisited: (Our 26 June 2003 post, to give you an idea of how tight Miller is with the neocon crowd and why she may be deeply involved with the trashing of Joe Wilson.)

Org chart:

The Washington Post has a detailed story about New York Times reporter Judith Miller and her influence over U.S. military officials and operations.  She is also closely connected to Ahmed Chalabi of the INC.  In the wake of this news, Eric Alterman writes, "... if this story is true, it is really beyond belief."  We agree.  Miller has become part of the team(s), and should not be considered an impartial reporter. We diagram key points from the Post story below:






UPDATE: Miller has connections with Daniel Pipes' Middle East Forum (story)
UPDATE: Arianna Huffington recaps this situation in a post of 28 July 2005.

(Miller/Wilson error corrected.)

Bush we all know used to drink a lot. What needs to be said about a man they call Rummy? So "It's Miller Time" in jail. And Chalabi is still a cheap Iraqi whine. Let's drink to connecting these dots.

I think in your openning line you meant Joe Wilson.

The word "trashing", although, often used is also incorrect.
To reveal that his wife was a CIA agent didn't not harm his reputation. It destroyed her position. It was intimidation not slander.

Actually, it was both:
Disclosing her status would intimidate others who might have such vulnerabilities to protect;
The "trashing" was to insinuate that she "got" him the job (dependency on the wife).

The later has actually been part of the recent spinning by the RNC hacks.

though her fait may be sealed that she is not really a journalist, rather a pundit to further the Bush crooks... I don't think it will hurt Ms. Miller in anyway. To think of her payoff when she gets out of her 180 jail sentence... not too terrible of a "stay," in my opinion for the historically documented rewards that have been received by other crooks connected to this admin... she's set.

My crystal ball has an image of Pat Fitzerald, the Special Counsel investigating this case...being FIRED before this ends.

His term is up in October, and everyone else in the DOJ is beholden to Bush and his cronies.

You heard it here first. Or whatever. What will the media say when this happens? Nada, nothing, nil.

All will fade into history....

Chalabi has been close to Douglas Feith for years and most of his misinformation was funneled through the Office of Special Plans headed by Feith.

Miller, Chalabi, and Feith even more responsible than the CIA for "bad intelligence" that justified attacking Iraq. Miller wasn't an observer, she was a participant.

But Judy needed to be a defacto general because Rummy fired all the best ones.

By Blogger granny, at 7/31/2005 1:47 AM  

My cristel ball also says that Fitzerald will be 'out of their'.
Maybe they will get Kissassinjar, to take care of this for them, arfter all he was a bit to obvious for the 911 commity, but he's still a 'good man'.

And we note with more than a bit of bitterness that all--every single one--of Miller's front-page exclusives was wrong in both the broad strokes and the details.

There was a time in journalism that getting a major above-the-fold front page article that badly wrong would have exiled the reporter to writing obituaries or doing the police blotter (if not outright fired). Getting three articles wrong would definitely have resulted in a "Perhaps you should consider some other line of work" meeting.

Alas, today, being so consistently wrong about matters of national and international import gets you promoted and protected. The world is upside down!

Miller also co-authored a book with Weekly Standard Wingnut Laurie Mylroie & was part of the stable of neo-con speakers at Benador Associates.

It all looks pretty clear to me; Judith Miller works for the CIA. She's a plant at the New York Times. It's old news that the CIA has plants in newspapers to spread propaganda. The question this begs is, who, above Miller at the New York Times, is directing traffic for the CIA?

check out the grossly preferential treatment judy got as a "reporter". via wolcott.

(the dalliance rumor though i could have done without.)

indictments or no, everbody should keep the pressure up in calling for congressional hearings. of course republicans will never oblige. but their very refusal will paint them to look corrupt. everybody knows and nobody can deny that republicans would have held hearings had this been a clinton scandal. congress' favorable ratings are low, republicans stonewalling investigating legitimate concerns can only drive it even lower.

good point. you think having a carlyle group member on the nyt's board of directers have something to do with it?

to give you an idea of how tight Miller is with the neocon crowd...

judith miller's membership to JINSA would also suggest that.
