Neocons Say Valerie Plame Film is Inaccurate

Four days ago Fair Game director Doug Liman responded to a falsehood-filled attack on his film's credibility by former N.Y. Times reporter and alleged neocon mouthpiece Judith Miller, which appeared in the Wall Street Journal on 12.9. Liman also alludes to a 12.3 Washington Post editorial, also penned with a dimissive and inaccurate neocon conviction, that attacked his film.

Judith Miller demonstrated in her recent WSJ story about my film, Fair Game, the same cavalier attitude towards the facts that led to her departure from The New York Times in disgrace. And we should never forget that Scooter Libby outed Valerie Plame to Miller in June 2003 -- more than two weeks before Richard Armitage outed Plame to Novak. Somehow Miller neglected to mention that in her op-ed piece.

So although neither Miller nor Armitage are in the film Fair Game, both of them were involved in the whole sorry episode up to their eyeballs. Actually, I would have loved to have included Richard Armitage, Dick Cheney and others in Fair Game, had Scooter Libby not obstructed the investigation, for which a unanimous jury convicted him on five serious counts with jail sentences.
