The Right Questions are Finally Being Asked


"Don't forget, sitting in prison right now, protecting her source, is Judith Miller of the New York Times. She, along with Matthew Cooper and Robert Novak, also wrote about Valerie Plame. Novak has apparently cut some sort of sweetheart deal with the special prosecutor. Miller is refusing to name her source to the special prosecutor. So she's sitting in the hoosegow.

But why is she in jail? It's been disclosed that Rove signed a statement giving anyone permission to speak about any contact he had over the Plame affair. Matthew Cooper of Time cited that assurance when he finally rolled over and agreed to testify, avoiding jail. It was also made easier when his employer released his e-mail contacts with Rove. So there was no more source to protect.

But neither Judith Miller nor the New York Times is rolling over. Couldn't the Times release Miller's notes just as easily as Time did Cooper's? Of course. But they won't. And Judith Miller is sitting in prison. Why? Who are they protecting? It couldn't possibly be Rove. Because if it were, the Times would roll on him in a second. How could they resist the chance to pile on against their nemesis, George W. Bush?

That's the real story here...and the mainstream media is missing it. It's not Rove, it's who Judith Miller is protecting. Could it be somebody else in the Bush White House? Cheney's chief of staff, Scooter Libby, has come up. Could it be Joseph Wilson? Valerie Plame herself? We'll probably know soon enough.

And don't forget a likely possibility: that the prosecutor will wrap things up and nobody will be indicted. Can you imagine the rage of the left then?"

Neal nails it on the head. "What is the real story here". No doubt Judith Miller is the key to the mystery, and as I have posted before this whole case wreaks of Wilson and Plame.

Watch and see.
