Arianna Huffington's Dream Vision

Judy Miller: Do We Want To Know Everything or Don't We?

"Not everyone in the Times building is on the same page when it comes to Judy Miller. The official story the paper is sticking to is that Miller is a heroic martyr, sacrificing her freedom in the name of journalistic integrity.

But a very different scenario is being floated in the halls. Here it is: It's July 6, 2003, and Joe Wilson's now famous op-ed piece appears in the Times, raising the idea that the Bush administration has "manipulate[d]" and "twisted" intelligence "to exaggerate the Iraqi threat." Miller, who has been pushing this manipulated, twisted, and exaggerated intel in the Times for months, goes ballistic. Someone is using the pages of her own paper to call into question the justification for the war -- and, indirectly, much of her reporting. The idea that intelligence was being fixed goes to the heart of Miller's credibility. So she calls her friends in the intelligence community and asks, Who is this guy? She finds out he's married to a CIA agent. She then passes on the info about Mrs. Wilson to Scooter Libby (Newsday has identified a meeting Miller had on July 8 in Washington with an "unnamed government official"). Maybe Miller tells Rove too -- or Libby does. The White House hatchet men turn around and tell Novak and Cooper. The story gets out.

This is why Miller doesn't want to reveal her "source" at the White House -- because she was the source. Sure, she first got the info from someone else, and the odds are she wasn't the only one who clued in Libby and/or Rove (the State Dept. memo likely played a role too)… but, in this scenario, Miller certainly wasn't an innocent writer caught up in the whirl of history. She had a starring role in it. This also explains why Miller never wrote a story about Plame, because her goal wasn't to write a story, but to get out the story that cast doubts on Wilson's motives. Which Novak did."


You know what? The left has tooo much time on their hands. They want Rove hung, but it's taking too long for Fitzgerald to "get the rope", so Arianna - the maven of macabre, "invents" a senerio that "fixes" the crime to her liking. Oh! I get it Arianna, "Downing Street Fixed"! Ah, you kill me!

Except it's all based again on that baseless assertion that Joe "nailed the White House, so they schemed to get even." Except for one thing:

Arianna, like the rest of the left, is living in the past.

Have you ever noticed that the left and the MSM always deal with this issue exclusively in 2002-2003, but NEVER in 2004? Why? Well that "pesky" little Senate Intelligence Report (Moonbat Kryptonite), creams Joe and makes him a CAD.

See how central Joe is to the left's argument?

Listen, here is the deal. This leak business is bogus if Joe Wilson purposely lied - which unless he has pathological disorder - is already proven to be true, and more importantly if he conspired with Ms. Plame to doctor intelligence - i.e. the Niger documents, then it doesn't matter if Rove got up on the top of the White House with a megaphone to announce who she was. If we had a pair of traitors I'm glad SOMEBODY said something.

Well, Arianna, here's a tip, and I have it on good measure, that Fitzgerald is NOT looking so much at 2003 or 2004, but back into 2002. "Ears have it" that he found the Plame Truth.

Game over.
