    Reporter released from prison after agreeing to testify in Plamegate probe

    According to this article, from Boston.com, Judith Miller, a journalist who has been behind bars for about 3 months, has now agreed to testify about the Bush regime's leaking of the name of a CIA agent, and so, was released from prison yesterday:

    "My source has now voluntarily and personally released me from my promise of confidentiality regarding our conversations," Miller said in a statement. Her source was Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, reported the Times, which supported her contention that her source should be protected. "As we have throughout this ordeal, we continue to support Judy Miller in the decision she has made," said Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. "We are very pleased that she has finally received a direct and uncoerced waiver, both by phone and in writing, releasing her from any claim of confidentiality and enabling her to testify." White House aides in the probe signed waivers earlier in the probe, but Miller wanted and received personal assurances that her source's waiver was voluntary.
