The New York Times reports that a federal grand jury subpoenaed Times reporter James Risen, ordering him to appear before a grand jury in Alexandria, Va., next week  in an effort to make him reveal the confidential sources for his 2006 book, "State of War."

David N. Kelley, Risen’s attorney, told the Times that the subpoena sought the identity of the person who provided information for a chapter in the book, which held that the CIA had unsuccessfully tried to infiltrate Iran’s nuclear program.
