Tuli Can't Stop Talking

These are just my thoughts on contemporary issues and an attempt to open up a dialogue.

The Bottom Line.

So, Judith Miller went to jail to protect her First Amendment rights. Well, maybe not so much. But her going to jail, and trying to cover for Irving Lewis “Scooter” Libby sure was helpful to the Bush Campaign.

If she had testified last year the indictment and the evidence of a White House smear would have been exposed before the last election.

According to Fitzgerald’s press conference yesterday:

QUESTION: In the end, was it worth keeping Judy Miller in jail for 85 days in this case? And can you say how important her testimony was in producing this indictment?

FITZGERALD: Let me just say this: No one wanted to have a dispute with the New York Times or anyone else. We can't talk generally about witnesses. There's much said in the public record.FITZGERALD: I would have wished nothing better that, when the subpoenas were issued in August 2004, witnesses testified then, and we would have been here in October 2004 instead of October 2005. No one would have went to jail.

Could it have made a difference? Who is to say, but it shouldn’t have been left up to Judith “Mushroom Cloud” Miller.

Just another example of the “Liberal Press.”
