The Iraq War and Stubborn Myths – WSJ is the title of Miller’s piece about her work building and supporting the pr campaign to win popular support for the Iraq invasion of 2003. Miller, who is at her creative best when defending her lack of critical thinking skills, has created a really fun look back at her poor work and basically lays the blame on chance, writing ‘we all got something wrong’.
Seriously, she offered as her defense ‘well, other were doing the same thing’ which is pretty unbelievable from a woman of Judith’s advanced years.
Then, in the link to the article at the Daily Beast, there was this :
First among them was Ahmed Chalabi, who said it didn’t matter if the administration was wrong about WMD. “We are heroes in error,” Chalabi said. “As far as we’re concerned, we’ve been entirely successful. That tyrant Saddam is gone, and the Americans are in Baghdad. What was said before is not important.”
Which made me think, he’s right. So, let’s hand over President Bush, Vice President Cheney and the whole lot of them to the International Criminal Court and let them sort it out. The press, or at least the Wall Street Journal, certainly isn’t up to the task.
