Here are a few choice morsels from Judy Miller and by Judy Miller in Ken Auletta's New York Times story in the New Yorker:
- Miller, Keller recalled, "was defensive, unrelentingly sure of her positions, and unwilling to be perceived as someone who wrote 'bad stories.' "
And here are a few unanswered questions:
- Miller did not know that Sulzberger, Keller, Jill Abramson, and Janet Robinson had held a series of discussions while she was in jail and, according to two of the principals, decided that her career at the Times was over. "The decision was that she was not going to work with words again," one of the participants said.
How many of the 14 glowing editorials on Miller while she was in jail were written after the decision that "she could never again be a reporter for the Times"? And what precisely sealed that decision?
- Although [Miller] will not criticize Sulzberger or discuss aspects of what happened, she does say, reluctantly, "He was there solidly -- until he wasn't."
At what point did Sulzberger change his mind about Miller and why? And was it, as a Times source told me, after his father told him that Miller could not come back to the paper?
- After studying Miller's notebook, Bennett concluded that there was only one source -- Libby.
So did Bennett conclude that Libby was also the source that told Miller about Valerie Flame?
