Judith Miller is an American journalist and author who is best known for her coverage of national security issues and foreign policy.
She was born on January 2, 1948, in New York City and attended Barnard College and the University of Oxford.
Miller began her career in journalism as a reporter for the New York Times in 1977, covering topics such as terrorism, nuclear weapons, and the Middle East.
She gained national attention for her coverage of the 1991 Gulf War, during which she was embedded with American troops in Iraq.
In the early 2000s, Miller was one of the journalists who reported on the United States’ claims that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) and the subsequent U.S. invasion of Iraq.
Her reporting was later criticized for being overly reliant on anonymous sources and for uncritically repeating the U.S. government’s claims about Iraq’s WMD program, which were later proven to be false.
Miller left the New York Times in 2005 and has since worked for Fox News, the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, and other organizations.
She has written several books, including “Germs: Biological Weapons and America’s Secret War” and “The Story: A Reporter’s Journey.”
Miller’s reporting on the Iraq War has been controversial, and she has faced criticism from many quarters, including her own colleagues at the New York Times.
Some have accused her of being a cheerleader for the Bush administration’s push for war, while others have defended her reporting as being accurate at the time, given the information available.
