I've mentioned to friends that I think jailed New York Times columnist Judith Miller may have more to do with the Plame scandal than we know. My suspicion was that Miller had a soft spot in her heart for one of the "Senior Administration Officials" cited by Bob Novak when he outed the CIA operative. For some personal reason ("Love?" asks this schmaltzy blogger), Ms. Miller languishes in a jail cell, potentially subjecting herself to criminal sanctions, to protect the Administration.
Over at the Huffington Post, Arianna Huffington opines that I have it backwards. In her post, she posits a theory that she claims is making the rounds at the Times: Judy Miller is Deep Throat. It's an interesting theory. This theory might lift the specter of criminal liability from members of the Administration. But it still wouldn't make their actions any less reprehensible.
