Weapons of Mass Distraction: A Conversation with Judith Miller

in 2003, Judith Miller filed a now-notorious report in the New York Times about the supposed weapons of mass destruction uncovered in Iraq under Saddam Hussein. This WMD narrative, propagated by the Bush administration and now supported by the Times, was used to sell the American public on invading Iraq as a consequence of 9/11, even though no link between Saddam Hussein and and 9/11 was ever found. Later, it was revealed that WMDs in Iraq did not exist, and Miller’s report simply toed the party line of the Bush Administration.

This week, on The Evening Edition, Ezra Zaid and Umapagan Ampikaipakan speak to Judith Miller about her brand new book, about her life as a reporter, her mistakes, and her road to redemption.
