WASHINGTON, Sept. 29 - Judith Miller, the reporter for The New York Times who has been jailed since July 6 for refusing to testify in the C.I.A. leak case, was released Thursday from a Virginia detention center after she and her lawyers reached an agreement with a federal prosecutor in which she would testify before a grand jury investigating the case, the publisher and the executive editor of the paper said.

Ms. Miller was freed after spending more than 12 weeks in jail, during which she refused to cooperate with the inquiry. Her decision to testify was made after she had obtained what she described as a waiver offered "voluntarily and personally" by a source who said she was no longer bound by any pledge of confidentiality she had made to him. Ms. Miller said the source had made clear that he genuinely wanted her to testify.

That source was I. Lewis Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, according to people who have been officially briefed on the case. Ms. Miller met with Mr. Libby on July 8, 2003, and talked with him by telephone later that week, they said.

Discussions between officials and journalists that week that may have disclosed the identity of a Central Intelligence Agency operative, Valerie Wilson, have been a central focus of the investigation.

1. Prediction: Libby will take the fall for Cheney
and Cheney will retire next year for health reasons.

Bush will pardon Libby.

Now they're scrambling to find a new VP who can head the ticket in 2008. Unfortunately it looks like Delay and Frist are both out of the running. Jeb Bush has too many family problems. Schwarzenegger is out of the running. McCain? Giuliani? Condi?

2. I don't buy this. I think she just had enough of jail.
Would you spend a couple months in jail over being "unsure" over something?

I sure wouldn't.

3. Maybe her CIA employer needed her for more propaganda.
And they told her to bust out, soon, to push the war in Iran.
