Hopefully, Millers public pratfall has taught them something. A True Believer, Miller apparently became an amanuensis to neo-conservative dogmatists in the Bush administration intoxicated by their own propaganda and determined to invade Iraq. Five of the six stories touting Saddam Husseins imaginary arsenal of WMD for which the Times has apologized carried her byline.

Then after the WMD fantasy began to come apart during the spring of 2003, her White House pals appeared to believe that they could count on Miller to help trash their enemies, specifically former Ambassador Joe Wilson and his wife, covert CIA operative Valerie Plame.

3. Miller was/is not a reporter.
She was/is an ally and advocate and propagandist for what is an inside the beltway coup. A takeover of the government of the people, by the people and for the people. She is guilty of treason. She did not "get it all wrong" about WMD. She knew what the facts were and she knew her job was to push hard to deflect the truth and plant falsehoods. She is a criminal and she should be charged with her crimes. And the NY Times should be dismantled forever.
