Oh, Judy: Miller Had 9/11 Warning Info, But Didn't Report It

Oh, Judy: Miller Had 9/11 Warning Info, But Didn't Report It:

As I say above, Judith Miller is a Cunt
In an interview with the Web site Alternet.org, Miller now claims she had advance intelligence information leaked to her months before the Sept. 11 attacks indicating Al Qaeda was planning a major attack on the United States.

Posted today, the story contends that Miller was sparked by the October 2000 attack on the USS Cole to increase her reporting of al-Qaida. She says that ultimately led, in July 2001, 'to a still-anonymous top-level White House source who shared top-secret NSA signals intelligence (SIGINT) concerning an even bigger impending al-Qaida attack, perhaps to be visited on the continental United States.

'Ultimately, Miller never wrote that story,' the Alternet piece continues. 'But two months later -- on Sept. 11 -- Miller and her editor at the Times, Stephen Engelberg, both remembered and regretted the story they 'didn't do.''

'So I sometimes think back, and Steve and I have talked a few times about the fact that that story wasn't fit, and that neither one of us pursued it at that time with the kind of vigor and determination that we would have had we known what was going to happen,' Miller told the Web site. 'And I always wondered how the person who sent that [intercept] warning must have felt. You know, sometimes in journalism you regret the stories you do, but most of the time you regret the ones that you didn't do.'

Engelberg also remembered the tip, according to told Alternet. 'I recall thinking it made perfect sense at the time,' he told the Web site. 'The Cole attack was out of character -- unlike the Africa embassy attacks, the Millennium plot, the earlier World Trade Center bombing.'

Later in the story he says, 'Judy had two guys talking, but no names or details ... Judy had the what, but not the who and the where. I said, 'Check with the CIA, NSA, DIA. But we couldn't get anything that week.'

'NY Times' and 'Time' Will Let Judge Review Plame Notes

'NY Times' and 'Time' Will Let Judge Review Plame Notes:

The Post also stated that 'much of yesterday's hearing concerned the notebooks of former New York Times reporter Judith Miller, who spoke three times with Libby about Wilson's work in June and July 2003 and made repeated reference in her notes to Plame. Miller has said she also discussed Plame with other officials but could not recall their names. But she did not write an article about the matter.'

The Times has given Libby a 'redacted copy of the notebooks,' but his attorney, William Jeffress, argued that Libby needed to see other names and phone numbers in Miller's notebooks to find out who else discussed Plame with her.

Jeffress plans to call six journalists to testify at the trial, with each expected to testify that during their conversations with Libby about Wilson in 2003, he never mentioned Plame's name, according to the Post.

Libby's Latest Filing Puts Judith Miller on the Spot

Analysis: Libby's Latest Filing Puts Judith Miller on the Spot:

Judy Miller handed them her own head on a platter — maybe that was intended, I dunno, that whole intertwined aspen roots turning together nonsense — but if this case goes to trial, it’s going to be an ugly ride for Judy on the stand. That it will come from her own words and her own writings makes it all the more powerful.
