Judith Miller and the Bloodbath in Iraq (Repeat)

Here is a reminder of Judith Miller's contribution to journalism by Jospeh A. Palermo

On April 21, 2003, Judith Miller, now working as an embedded reporter with the U.S. military's MET Alpha, wrote the story, "Illicit Arms Kept Till Eve of War, an Iraqi Scientist Is Said to Assert." In this piece of propaganda, Miller claims without evidence or proof that the Iraqis destroyed or shipped to Syria their vast stockpiles of WMDs.

Judith chooses to blame her lies on crazy informants, but then why does she choose to believe and report on those lies that paint Muslims in the most negative light? Her reporting contributed to the public accepting the bombing of Iraq.

Millions of refugees are pouring out of Iraq into Syria, Jordan and Egypt; the United States is doing nothing to share in the cost of caring for these refugees.

While Judith Miller is babbling on about CVS, Iraqi and Palestinian women are struggling to provide food for their families while worrying about their safety.

How come Judith Miller has no interest in investigating the dancing Israelis of 9/11? Doesn't she care about the safety of the United States? See these videos
