Interesting Times - By William Rivers Pitt July 7, 2005
http://www.truthout.org/docs_2005/070705Y.shtml

"The fellow on the arm of Ms. Plame, Ambassador Joseph Wilson, smells the brimstone on the wind. Reached for comment regarding the imprisonment of Miller, Wilson stated, "The sentencing of Judith Miller to jail for refusing to disclose her sources is the direct result of the culture of unaccountability that infects the Bush White House from top to bottom. President Bush's refusal to enforce his own call for full cooperation with the Special Counsel has brought us to this point."

"Clearly," continued Wilson, "the conspiracy to cover up the web of lies that underpinned the invasion of Iraq is more important to the White House than coming clean on a serious breach of national security. Thus has Ms. Miller joined my wife, Valerie, and her twenty years of service to this nation as collateral damage in the smear campaign launched when I had the temerity to challenge the President on his assertion that Iraq had attempted to purchase uranium yellowcake from Africa. The real victims of this cover-up, which may have turned criminal, are the Congress, the Constitution and, most tragically, the Americans and Iraqis who have paid the ultimate price for Bush's folly."
