Judith Miller subpoenaed

From the NY Times:
A reporter for The New York Times, Judith Miller, was subpoenaed yesterday by a Washington grand jury investigating the disclosure of the identity of a C.I.A. undercover officer to the syndicated columnist Robert Novak and other journalists.

The subpoena to Ms. Miller was only the most recent of a series issued to journalists in a politically sensitive inquiry that has on several occasions led investigators to question White House officials.
Miller, you may recall, served (figuratively) as Ahmed Chalabi's personal stenographer, making sure that every lie he could possibly make up about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq would make America's "newspaper of record," usually on the front page.

Time magazine correspondent Matt Cooper was held in contempt and threatened with being sent to jail for failing to reveal a source in this case. Others, including NBC's Tim Russert, have been called by the grand jury as well.
