Matt Taibbi On Judith Miller

The above link is a Rolling Stone article about former NYT reporter Judith Miller, who played a role in making the country think that Iraq was a war of necessity.  She has just released a book and is trying to redeem her reputation.  But there is nothing she can do to redeem herself at this point, especially when she still seems not to understand the full ramifications of her actions.  She helped lead this country into a war that has caused untold pain and suffering, with thousands of dead soldiers and even more innocent Iraqis killed, along with untold numbers that were either maimed or now face psychological trauma.  She betrayed the public trust in a way that I don’t think can ever be fully forgiven.
