Who is Judith Miller Protecting?
Could Judith Miller be protecting Dick Cheney? His chief of staff, Lewis Libby, authorized reporters eons ago (link, scroll down to Entertainment Reporter quote)to disclose that they spoke to him. I don't know the answer, but consider:
Joe Wilson has said he suspected (but was not alleging it was) Vice President Cheney. From USA Today:
Wilson connects Cheney to the events involving his wife through a meeting he said occurred in March 2003. He charged that Cheney's staff — with at least the "implicit" involvement of the vice president — met and decided to investigate his background. The investigation, he said, uncovered his wife's role at the CIA.
"The office of the vice president, either the vice president himself or more likely his chief of staff, chaired a meeting at which a decision was made to do a 'work-up' on me," Wilson wrote in The Politics of Truth. Vanity Fair magazine reported in January that Cheney's office denied that any such meeting occurred.
Judith Miller's lawyer, Floyd Abrams, said today:
Asked why prosecutors sought Miller's testimony when she never wrote a story about Plame, Times attorney Floyd Abrams said, "We don't know, but most likely somebody testified to the grand jury that he or she had spoken to Judy."
Dick Cheney was questioned by investigators for the grand jury. One other possibility from Dick Cheney's office: Dick Hannah.
