Orin Kerr at the Volokh Conspiracy examines Judith Miller's exit from prison now that she has gotten a "release" from her source.
Am I missing something, or was the jailing of Judith Miller not about high principle and the First Amendment but about a factual dispute as to whether Dick Cheney's Chief of Staff had really waived his confidentiality? If you're Bob Bennett, Judith Miller's top-shelf lawyer, wouldn't you try to clear this up before your client spent three months in jail? Something about this seems fishy to me.
No kidding, Orin. The question is whether we will eventually find out what is causing the odor or not.
