A New Look at an Old Story

In a commentary today, the Financial Times takes a different look at Plamegate by pointing the finger away from Karl Rove and toward Judith Miller.

The Times theorizes, based on a story “circulating inside the Justice Department,” that Rove’s motivation of revenge is too obvious (we, too, would like to believe “Bush’s Brain” is smarter than this). FT instead poses a connect-the-dots theory based on Miller and Plame’s backgrounds.

Miller is not a political reporter, but an investigative journalist and co-author of “Germs: Biological Weapons and America’s Secret War.” Similarly, Plame is a CIA operative specializing in WMDs and bio-terror.

So, did Miller get to know Plame while she was writing her book or even use her as a source for other WMD stories?

Despite languishing in prison for 56 days, Miller still isn’t revealing her source.
