New York Times Reporter Judith Miller was released after 85 days in an Alexandria jail after she agreed to testify before a grand jury investigating the leak of the name of CIA operative Valerie Plame. Miller agreed after I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney’s chief of staff, personally released her from her pledge of confidentiality as a source of information. Libby, through his lawyer, said he had signed a confidentiality waiver more than a year ago but Miller’s attorney said it was not clear that earlier action was not coerced. (9/30/05)
