 Judith Miller

New York Times reporter

Judith (Judy) Miller

has played a key role in promoting both U.S. wars against Iraq.

During the first U.S.-led war in the Persian Gulf, Miller co-wrote a book with Laurie Mylroie, titled Saddam Hussein and the Crisis in the Gulf.

Miller and Mylroie have both been clients of

Eleana Benador
, whose PR firm has represented many leading pro-war figures that have appeared prominently on television and in other public venues. She has also worked closely and uncritically with

Ahmed Chalabi
, the head of the Iraqi National Congress, in developing her reports on Iraq. In a May 2003 e-mail message, Miller stated that Chalabi "has provided most of the front page exclusives on [alleged Iraqi weapons of mass destruction] to our paper."

Miller played an important role in promoting the presidential team's agenda on Iraq. Indeed, she wrote the first article, entitled «Threats and Responses : The Iraqis ; U.S. Says Hussein Intensifies Quest for A-Bomb Parts», on Saddam Hussein's

programme, mentioning "aluminium tubes" which could be uses for nuclear weapons. That was on September 7, less than two weeks after Vice-President

Dick Cheney
delivered the first speech in which he presented Iraq as Washington's next target. [1]. It is therefore possible to think that she played a role in the public relations campaign that was led by the Bush administration on Iraq, directed by

Andrew Card

In June 2003, Washington Post reporter

Howard Kurtz
noted that "Miller played a highly unusual role in an Army unit assigned to search for dangerous Iraqi weapons, according to U.S. military officials, prompting criticism that the unit was turned into what one official called a 'rogue operation.' More than a half-dozen military officers said that Miller acted as a middleman between the Army unit with which she was embedded and Iraqi National Congress leader Ahmed Chalabi, on one occasion accompanying Army officers to Chalabi's headquarters, where they took custody of Saddam Hussein's son-in-law. She also sat in on the initial debriefing of the son-in-law, these sources say. Since interrogating Iraqis was not the mission of the unit, these officials said, it became a 'Judith Miller team,' in the words of one officer close to the situation."[2]

The links of Judith Miller with the Pentagon are not new. In 1986, she wrote numerous of articles on Libya, thus contributing to a massive disinformation campaign on Khadafi which was coordinated by Admiral


Bob Woodward
has written a major article in the Washington Post on this strategy.
