In a new report, just posted on the AIM web site, AIM editor Cliff Kincaid offers more evidence that the CIA leak case has been orchestrated by the CIA to undermine the Bush Administration.
Kincaid declares, “The savage left-wing attack on Judith Miller from inside and outside of the New York Times completely misses the point. She is under attack for being a lackey of the Bush Administration when she failed to do the administration and the public a big favor. She could have done a potential Pulitzer Prize-winning story that could have broken the Joseph Wilson case wide open. It is a story exposing the Wilson mission to Africa as a CIA operation designed to undermine President Bush.”
He adds, “For 85 days in jail, Miller protected her source, Lewis Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney’s chief of staff, but the fact remains that she never used the explosive information Libby gave her. Now we know, according to Miller’s account, that Libby told her about a CIA war with the Bush Administration over Iraq intelligence and that he vociferously complained to her about CIA leaks to the press. But Miller decided that what Libby told her was not newsworthy. Why?”
