She should be right at home
Reading a recent Newsmax article, I was startled to find Judith Miller’s byline appearing on another story advertised atop the page. But upon further reflection, I should not have been surprised, for Miller is a natural for Newsmax, which also brought discredit upon itself in April 2003 by claiming that missiles had been found in Iraq; this later turned out to be a fabrication, much to the embarrassment of conservatives who had cited the article as retroactive justification for the US’ invasion.
