Joseph C. Wilson comments to Citizens For Legitimate Government on the release of Judith Miller from jail
Joseph Wilson: "act of cowardice" of Miller's source --Former US Ambassador, Joseph C. Wilson, comments to Citizens For Legitimate Government on the release of Judith Miller from jail 30 Sep 2005 "I am delighted that Judith Miller's ordeal has come to an end. She spent time in jail, by her own admission because her source had not given her the authorization she felt she required consistent with her personal understanding of her obligation as a journalist to protect the identity of that source. It was an act of cowardice on the part of her source, a senior official in the administration, to allow her to languish in jail for the past several months rather than step forward to acknowledge his or her responsibility in this matter."
Judith Miller released from jail 29 Sep 2005 Judith Miller, the New York Times 'reporter' jailed since July 6 for refusing to identify a source, was released this afternoon following a telephone conversation with the alleged source - the vice pResident's chief of staff. She is expected to testify before a grand jury in Washington, a source said, possibly as early as Friday. Miller spoke from jail two weeks ago with Vice pResident Dick Cheney's chief of staff, I. Lewis Libby, according to Libby's lawyer, Joseph Tate. During that conversation, Libby reaffirmed that he had released Miller from a promise of confidentiality more than a year ago, Tate said.
