Judith Miller, The New York Times Journalist jailed for failing to reveal sources in the Plame investigation has been released from her low security Prison in Virginia. Miller has not served a full sentence and many are speculating that she will testify.
Judith Miller, The New York Times reporter who has been jailed since July 6 for refusing to identify a source, has been released, The Philadelphia Inquirer has learned.

Miller left an Alexandria, Va. jail at 3:55 p.m., a jail official said.

She was released after she had a telephone conversation with the Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, I. Lewis Libby, sources said. In that conversation, Libby reaffirmed that he had released Miller from a promise of confidentiality more than a year ago, sources said.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

Her testimony before a Grand Jury could come as early as Friday where she will name Lewis "Scooter" Libby as the source of her information. Libby is Vice President Dick Cheneys Chief of Staff.

Wow. A very interesting turn of events. I'm eagerly awaiting more on this story.

Well, it just goes to show ya that Libby has figured out who to put on the chopping block, and we can guarantee it wont be the real person. Its sad really. Notice, she didn't get released until trying to get hold of Dick "Dickless" Cheney! Interesting.

Judy Miller will testify that Scooter Libby was behind the leak.

The investigation of Rove stops when they find the source of the leak. Libby is doing what a good foot solider does, he's falling on his sword to protect Cheney, and more importanly, Karl Rove.

If he's prosecuted, Libby will be well taken care of in the private sector.

Irv Lewis "Scooter" Libby: Revealed as Miller's source in Plame CIA leak

Donald Donald Rumsfeld Smashed the National Guard

Dick Cheney Limps Home

George Bush Goes to Hell

Who's in Charge? Karl Rove!

Unhonorable Mentions

Jack Abramoff: The Republican super-lobbyist, known to have bragged about his contacts with Karl Rove, was indicted in Florida last month along with his business partner on wire fraud and conspiracy fraud charges related to their purchase of a fleet of gambling boats. This week, three men were arrested -- including two who received payments from Abramoff's business partner -- in the Mafia-style killing of the man from whom Abramoff and his partner purchased the gambling boats.

David Safavian: The president's chief procurement officer stepped down two weeks ago and was arrested last week on charges of lying to investigators and obstructing a separate federal investigation into Abramoff's dealings in Washington. Some Republicans who received campaign contributions from Safavian are divesting themselves of his money now.

Timothy Flanigan: The president's nominee to serve as deputy attorney general has announced that he will have to recuse himself from the Abramoff investigation if he is confirmed because he hired Abramoff to help the company where he works -- scandal-ridden Tyco International Ltd. -- lobby DeLay and Rove on tax issues.

Michael Brown: The president's FEMA director resigned earlier this month amid complaints about his handling of Hurricane Katrina and charges that he and other FEMA officials got their jobs based on political connections and cronyism rather than competence or qualifications.

Bob Taft: The Republican governor of Ohio pleaded guilty last month to criminal charges based on his failure to report gifts as required by state law, among them golfing trips paid for by Tom Noe, a major Republican fundraiser who is the subject of his own scandal regarding the state's investment in $50 million in rare coins, some of which have mysteriously gone missing.

Randy "Duke" Cunningham: A federal grand jury in San Diego is investigating allegations that the veteran Republican congressman received financial favors from a defense contractor who allegedly bought Cunningham's house at an inflated price and let him live for free on the contractor's 42-foot yacht.

Ernie Fletcher: The Republican governor of Kentucky has refused to answer questions from a grand jury investigating whether his administration based hiring decisions on political considerations rather than merit. Fletcher has pardoned nine people in the probe -- including the chairman of Kentucky's Republican party -- and fired members of his staff.

George Ryan: Federal prosecutors made their opening statements this week in the criminal trial of the former Republican governor of Illinois. Ryan and a friend, Chicago insurance adjuster Lawrence Warner, are charged with racketeering conspiracy, mail fraud, tax fraud and lying to federal agents.

Feel free to add more as this Rove-gate can of worms opens wider.

I'm not sayin' her testimony will be false but I suspect that Ms. Miller has now been "fixed"...or maybe it just took a couple of months for Herr Chicanery and Rover to work out the logistics for mitigation of the "media-hit"... I wonder what Ms. Miller will have for a future? Maybe a Bush appointment... FCC chair could stand replacement. Nah, they'll just agree to leave she and her loved-ones alone as part of the "deal"...shades of democracy and flexible ethics writ large.

WASHINGTON - Finally agreeing to testify, New York Times reporter Judith Miller's grand jury appearance throws a damaging spotlight once again on a White House whose credibility has been undermined in the criminal probe into the leak of a covert CIA officer's identity.

OH BOY the stinky brown stuff sure gonna hit the fan now.
She was known for being an administration shill but now with Rove and Libby fingered as the sources of the Plame leak its gonna be fun to watch cheney and bush try to squirm and wiggle their ways out of such a control obsessive administration, they had to have known. Can you spell high crimes and mistomeaners (obviously I can't)

So why did she have to spend time in jail for 80 days while Libby tried to figure out if he should let her off the hook? I am more interested into why they allow her to talk now. Maybe they got their ducks lined up allready to dismiss this case or bury it

I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby

?Skull and Bones?

Disquieting? Consider our last three presidents, whether Republican or Democrat, attended Yale and, not coincidentally, the “terror expert” governing Iraq , Paul Bremer III, is another Yale insider. Former CIA Director James Woolsey, who lauded the approach of "World War IV," John Bolton and Lewis Libby, all Yale.

Libby graduated from Yale University in 1972, where one of his professors was Paul Wolfowitz and from Columbia University's law school in 1975

Irving Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Jr. (born August 22, 1950) is a lawyer and Chief of Staff to Dick Cheney, Vice President of the United States as well as the Vice President's assistant for National Security Affairs.

Libby was a founding member of the Project for the New American Century. He joined Paul Wolfowitz, William Kristol, Robert Kagan, and others in writing its 2000 report entitled, "Rebuilding America's Defenses - Strategy, Forces, and Resources for a New Century."

Libby co-authored the draft of the 'Defense Planning Guidance' with Wolfowitz for then-Defense Secretary Dick Cheney in 1992.

Yes, brimstone375, he will be wellll taken care of.

Perhaps this may be the "Call to Duty" for I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby.

Out of the political spotlight and into the private sector works better behind the scenes, don't you think?!

Interesting to say the least!!
