Now, That's Protecting a Source
Rove-a-Palooza/Take a Letter from Libby/Miller's Crossing/Big Time!

The new Murray Waas piece over at the National Journal is making the rounds of the blogosphere, which details what happened in the grand jury to get Judy Miller to finally recall that meeting she had with Scooter Libby on June 23 of 2003. Here's the crux:
New York Times reporter Judith Miller told the federal grand jury in the CIA leak case that she might have met with I. Lewis (Scooter) Libby on June 23, 2003 only after prosecutors showed her Secret Service logs that indicated she and Libby had indeed met that day in the Executive Office Building adjacent to the White House, according to attorneys familiar with her testimony.
And here's a comment from Atrios:
The rest of the article makes it pretty obvious that Miller was most likely not simply protecting a source's confidentiality but actively trying to protect that source from legal jeopardy. Not the same thing.
