George (Neumayr) -- you hit the nail on the head. One thing to add: The New York Times and Washington Post articles underline the irony in the whole sordid affair -- Judy Miller was already in the doghouse, and by many insider accounts, on her way out for her shoddy WMD reporting before the Plame story broke. Pat Fitzgerald put the NYT in the uncomfortable position of defending a reporter they would have rather seen leave before they were forced to giver her the "full Jason Blair." Instead, Judy gets martyr status. Now, with the full story coming out, Miss Run Amok seems less martyrish... Still, St. Judy should send the prosecutor a dozen roses and a thank you note for rescuing her career.
