Judith Miller claims making stuff up is not the same as lying

I beg to differ. Making stuff up IS lying.

Check out her self-serving mea non-culpa; "Before the 2003 invasion, President Bush and other officials cited the intelligence community's incorrect conclusions about Saddam's WMD capabilities, and on occasion, went beyond them."

When you go beyond the conclusions provided by your intel community, correct or not, you're obviously making stuff up.

Not in Miller's world. Here's her next sentence; "But relying on the mistakes of others and errors of judgement are not the same as lying."

There you have it. Bush and Cheney and Colin Powell and Judith Miller and the NYT weren't lying about Saddam's WMDs after all...

They were just making stuff up.

Too bad about the collateral damage.
