The Judy Miller - Patrick Fitzgerald back story

Josh Marshall details the history of NY Times reporter Judy Miller and Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald, apparently this isn't the first leak investigation where these two have crossed paths...

"A little more than a year ago, I reported on TPM how Fitzgerald had quite aggressively investigated another Bush White House leak in late 2001 and early 2002. Fitzgerald had been investigating three Islamic charities accused of supporting terrorism -- the Holy Land Foundation, the Global Relief Foundation, and the Benevolence International Foundation. But just before his investigators could swoop in with warrants, two of the charities in question got wind of what was coming and, apparently, were able to destroy a good deal of evidence.

What tipped them off were calls from two reporters at the New York Times who'd been leaked information about the investigation by folks at the White House."

The entire column is worth a read

hmmmm..... so there is a history of her getting leaks from the WH, in addition to the known history of her participation in the "reporting of facts" in the run-up to the iraq war?

Armstrong Williams should take off the Judith Miller mask.
