Matt Cooper Speaks

Former Time reporter, Matt Cooper, will reveal new thoughts on the Plame affair in the inaugural issue of the new magazine, Portfolio.  Howard Kurtz writes about it today.  An excerpt:

Cooper was rankled that “my reporting was becoming linked to Miller’s flawed work.” He says the then-New York Times reporter, who wound up spending 85 days in jail, “had become the poster girl for leading the country into war.” He recalls Miller using a prohibited cellphone in court to dial what she called “my guys in Iraq,” the Army unit with which she had been embedded.
