I think this is the ultimate way to sum up 8 years of Bush. Watch it, you won't regret it. The Daily Show at its very best.

5. STENOGRAPHER Judith Miller
They hit it out of the park with that one.

I posted about this the day after it was on but couldn't see this clip on the Daily Show website-I was wondering if they didn't put it on the website so it could be posted on youtube :shrug:

thanks for posting this. A true classic

7. Actually, that was the one joke I didn't understand.
I must have missed whatever it was that involved Judith Miller. (Who is she?)

8. Judith Miller was the conduit for their leaks in the run up to the war
aside from her working their stories on to the front page of the New York Times almost daily
she was the source for the Times of all the leaks that magically happened right before Dick/Condy/Rummy went on
the sunday morning shows (MTP, Face the Nation, This Week).

So, a leak happens...it makes it into the Times Sunday morning above the fold...and (insert war monger) cites the Times story on the show.

Miller also was pretty much asigned a task force IN Iraq (US military personnel) to track down the info the administration was feeding her from home.
She had a infamous story of a guy in a baseball hat that suggested that there WERE WMD-the whole thing is so convoluted that I don't want to type it all out

Miller was also the recipient of Scooter Libby's weird poem (they aren't sleeping together and he wrote her a poem?) as they let her take the fall in the Plame case.

Miller most infamous quote was something like "I don't check out the sources I just forward the talking points"

"New" Strange Tale of Miller & the Military

Miller "acted as a 'middleman' between an American military unit and the Iraqi National Congress while she was embedded with the U.S. armed forces searching for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq in April 2003, and 'took custody' of Saddam Hussein's son-in-law, one of 55 most wanted Iraqis," The Raw Story reported October 18, 2005.

Miller also "sat in on the initial debriefing of Jamal Sultan Tikriti, according to a June 25, 2003 article published in the Washington Post.

"The Post article sheds some light on her unusual arrangement in obtaining a special security clearance from the Department of Defense which is now the subject of a Democratic congressional inquiry. On Monday, Reps. John Conyers and Ira Skelton, the ranking Democrats on the House Judiciary and Armed Services committees sent Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld a letter demanding an explanation to Millers top secret security clearance, which Rumsfeld reportedly personally authorized."

The Raw Story said that the "Post article (see below) raises an important question about her role in the outing of a covert CIA agent: was Miller, whose flawed reporting on the existence of WMDs was scrutinized in mainstream newspapers, truly meeting with Libby in the hopes of pursuing a hot story or was she trying to get information out of him that would help restore her credibility and cover up her errors?"

Libby's letter/poem to Miller
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2005/10/1/132251/998
"You went into jail in the summer. It is fall now. You will have stories to cover--Iraqi elections and suicide bombers, biological threats and the Iranian nuclear program. Out West, where you vacation, the aspens will already be turning. They turn in clusters, because their roots connect them. Come back to work---and life. Until then, you will remain in my thoughts and prayers."
