Here are two reasons why I believe JUDITH MILLER WILL NOT GIVE THE TRUTH:
1. There is no way to ensure that Miller's testimony does not include perjury about what was actually said in those Plame-related conversation(s). Her Iraq War work show she's perfectly comfortable with murderous lies, and the paper editors must be too because she still has her job after her criminal role in passing the Administration's lies in the leadup to the war. Why would she tell the truth if she can get away with lying about this? And how would we ever know?

2. According to the deal made with Fitzgerald's team and Miller's lawyers, she cannot be asked about any of her other sources. So if it was BOLTON who was the traitor who told her, or indeed if it was anyone but Libby, she DOES NOT HAVE TO TELL.

I'm betting it was Bolton who talked to her, and by the deal that has been made, she will not have to divulge this. This is JUSTICE???

The NYT article and the disgusting statements by Miller and NYT editorial brass are linked to and excerpted in this post (within another thread on the Miller release):

(Don't miss the link to a thread on Conyers' blogging about this at the end of that post.)

And people, remember that Miller is STILL a valued employee of the NY Times after the murderous role she played in helping to push this country into the Iraq War by passing on the Administration's lies. The blood of thousands is on her hands. She does not care. Her editors and the owners of the New York Times do not care. Now she is spouting about protecting high principles (excerpts from ):

...I am also grateful to the many fellow journalists and citizens from the United States and around the world, who stood with me in fighting for the cause of the free flow of information. It was a source of strength through a difficult three months to know they understood what I did was to affirm one of my profession's highest principles....

And Bill Keller, the NYT executive editor, is spouting the most nauseating glop about this woman of murderous lies, published in his paper:

It's an enormous relief that Judy's ordeal is over. Her steadfastness in defense of principle has won her admiration from around the world, wherever people value a free, aggressive press.


Her friends and colleagues are delighted she's free, and -- if there is satisfaction in what she has endured -- I am satisfied that she has held fast to a principle that matters deeply.

Judith Miller as a "defender of high principles." :grr: I can't stand this. The hypocrisy meter, which gets such a constant beating in this Administration, is absolutely PINNED.

Even now Miller is very likely covering for high traitors in the Iraq War leadup and in the Plame leak - this is no woman of any principle except furthering her own ambition at any cost. And remember, the outing of Plame herself was bad enough, a crime of a traitor, but even more substantial -and, I believe, a major intention in the whole exercise - is the fact that this step destroyed an entire long-term NETWORK involved in getting the TRUTH ABOUT WMDs IN THE MIDDLE EAST. It was obviously in the Administration's interest to block the truth, for their lies - obediently relayed to the public (including Congress) via Miller - served as the basis for the Iraq war. Is this not an act of an even WORSE traitor? Covering such a crime is no admirable thing, certainly not justification for the self-congratulatory back-slapping of Miller and her bosses at the NYT.

We need to BLAST the NYT and other newspapers with LTTEs to object to Miller's continuing employment by the NYT after her Iraq War lies and the sorry carrying on about how proud they are about her work in protecting murderous traitor(s) responsible for destroying most of our information network responsible for WMD information in the Middle East.

And she will STILL be protecting the traitor(s) during her testimony for Fitzgerald. I'm betting at least one of them is BOLTON. Why do YOU think he came to visit her in jail?
