Miller Freed From Jail, Libby Was Plame Source

After spending almost three months in jail, New York Times reporter Judith Miller was released from jail today.

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.

Of course, readers of read almost two years ago that Libby was the source of the Plame leak.

Between this and Larry Franklin’s plea bargain in the AIPAC case, this has been quite a news day for the war party. Of course there were a few other Iraq-related stories today.
