Miller co-wrote a book Germs: Biological Weapons and America's Secret War, which became a top New York Times best seller shortly after she became a victim of a hoax anthrax letter at the time of the 2001 anthrax attacks.The New York Times determined that several stories she wrote about Iraq were inaccurate, and she was forced to resign from the paper in 2005. According to commentator Ken Silverstein, Miller's Iraq reporting "effectively ended her career as a respectable journalist". Miller acknowledged in The Wall Street Journal on April 4, 2015, that some of her Times coverage was inaccurate, although she relied on sources she had used previously. She further stated that policymakers and intelligence analysts had relied on the same sources, and that at the time the CIA, congress and foreign intelligence agencies, even those whose leaders opposed the war, believed that Hussein still had WMDs. Her memoir The Story: A Reporter's Journey was published in April 2015 was an attempt to defend her reputation. Bill Moyers of PBS published commentary including a compendium of over 100 sources that analyzed the inaccurate reporting that facilitated the war, including links to interviews with weapons inspector Scott Ritter.Miller was involved in the Plame Affair, which outed Valerie Plame as a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) spy. Miller spent 85 days in jail for refusing to reveal that her source in the Plame Affair was Scooter Libby.
