Judith Miller: Journalist hero or Bush's Iraq war enabler

When it comes to bad reporting in the run up to the Iraq war the articles of Judith Miller of the New York Times were particularly noted for the bad information they contained. Ms. Miller is currently in jail for refusing to name the source in the outing of a CIA agent by White House personnel. We now know it was not Karl Rove she was protecting so it must be someone else in the White House.
Giving that her reporting leading up to the war in Iraq helped disseminate faulty information perhaps her staying in a cell for the next four months might be a good thing because at least she won't be carrying the water for Bush and the Neocon artists and exiled Iraqis who in 2003 pushed this country into the war.
