Judy Miller's career highlights

* Noise has the short version of Judy's career highlights:
"Judy gets an antrax letter of somekind.

She was involved in the Plame case.

She was involved in the WMD issue.

She sat on a 9/11 story.

Oh yeah. She cowrote a book on bio-terrorim and had email correspondence w/David Kelly shortly before he died.

You can probably see that red flag from space."
is there anything else to add to that? she tipped off the muslim charities that pat fitzgerald was gonna raid them. anything else?

* rimone:
"allow me to remind you of that which, back in november 04, the ever-fawning lit-tle pet Brit, shit-eater YO BLAIR, called '(Bush's) wonderfully uncluttered mind.’ which, in unvarnished American English, means ‘he’s a brainless wankstain.’
anyway, my own answer to ‘is bush an idiot?’ is a resounding NO; mostly cause we find out here that Lewis M Terman, the granddude of the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale, stated that idiots have IQs below 20 and if this is true, we’re in much deeper shit than we thought, the least of which reason is the mentally deficient cannot be impeached.

moving right along, i believe he’s a sociopath, but as usual, your mileage may vary. and dig the Demoratic snark of Charles Rangel: ‘I really think that he shatters the myth of white supremacy once and for all…’"

* everyone seems to be worried about the quality of the no-spying ruling. glenn, AL, balkan.

* glenn:
" Eavesdropping in violation of FISA is a federal crime, punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a $10,000 fine (50 U.S.C. 1809).

Thus, judicial decisions are starting to emerge which come close to branding the conduct of Bush officials as criminal. FISA is a criminal law. The administration has been violating that law on purpose, with no good excuse. Government officials who violate the criminal law deserve to be -- and are required to be -- held accountable just like any other citizens who violate the law. That is a basic, and critically important, principle in our system of government. These are not abstract legalistic questions being decided. They amount to rulings that our highest government officials have been systematically breaking the law -- criminal laws -- in numerous ways. And no country which lives under the rule of law can allow that to happen with impunity."

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.

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.
