Jailbird Judy Miller had an op-ed piece in Thursday’s Wall Street Journal deconstructing the new movie “Fair Game” about the White House’s outing of CIA operative Valerie Plame.
I went to jail in the summer of 2005 to protect the identity of a confidential source who spoke to me about Valerie Plame, the former CIA spy whose identity was disclosed after her husband publicly challenged part of the evidence that President Bush cited to justify his invasion of Iraq. I’m the only person to have gone to jail in what became known as Plamegate. But you wouldn’t know it from the recently released movie “Fair Game.”
There is no character based on me in the film—and that turns out to be a good thing. Although the movie is brilliantly acted, it is also a gross distortion of a complicated political saga.
Miller then proceeds to explain in detail why the movie is “a gross distortion of a complicated political saga.”
But she never explains why it’s a good thing there’s no character based on her in the film.
C’mon, Judy – spill.
