Judith Miller jailed, Cooper agrees to testify

"New York Times Reporter Judith Miller was jailed today. So her source and Cooper's source are not the same - since Cooper's relented and agreed to let Cooper testify about him. How many of these Senior White House officials are there?" writes Jeralyn Merritt. "Cooper's waiver [he was "freed" by his confidential source to reveal his identity] is for the grand jury. He won't tell the public who it is. Miller is going to jail in the DC area - Fitzgerald may charge Miller with criminal contempt - that carries five years - even obstruction of justice is not off the table. (from press conferences)" (TalkLeft)
