More on Judith Miller

At Medianews(no permanent links, sadly)

From the now debunked "specially configured aluminum tubes" sought by Saddam to enrich Uranium, which Miller revealed last September, to the
accusation that Iraq obtained a particularly virulent strain of smallpox from a Russian scientist, to the over-hyped purchases by Iraq of large quantities of atropine injectors, to the shadow scientist last week who confirmed the major Bush administration allegations then disappeared, none of her stories contained real evidence of Iraq's alleged recent WMD program.

Unfortunately, The Times' reporter on the scene -- the Public's so-called watchdog -- is not only ideologically committed, but she may now have more of a stake than George Bush to prove all these front page allegations she channeled from the government were true.
