Judith Miller has returned to center stage with an autobiography, The Story: A Reporter’s Journey. The Story traces Miller’s many stations of the journalistic cross—as an affirmative action hire and clueless rookie at the New York Times, as the Times Cairo bureau chief, Times Paris correspondent, Times Washington reporter, book author and, most famously, as a national security reporter whose work for the Times before and after the Iraq war drew hot fire from detractors who accused her of relying on dubious sources, and worse.
