"Judy Miller may also come into the Larry Franklin case. According to the indictment, on June 3, 2003, Franklin met with "FO-3" (identified as Naor Gilon, then political officer at the Israeli embassy) to discuss "a specific person, not in the United Status government, and her thoughts concerning the nuclear program of the Middle Eastern country and, separately, certain charity, efforts in Foreign Nation A." This is likely to have referred to Judy Miller, who was then working with Chalabi and Rhode on the Iraqi Jewish Archive.thnx anon - you are right that Miller is knee deep in the franklin case too. if memory serves, justin or someone else at awc specifically 'proved' that this was indeed Miller. i was unaware of the 'factoid' - at the moment, i can't even get my head around the implications, if any. does anyone have any speculation about that?
There's also the interesting factoid that Miller finally agreed to testify in the Plame investigation on September 29, 2005 -- the same day that the New York Times reported Larry Franklin was about to plead guilty."
archie in the comments points to this 'floating knesset' story. emptywheel dealt with that story here.
i'm also reminded of the story that judy happily accepted an invitation to watch the
judy miller aint no ordinary journalist. that's for sure.
