Karl Rove - Prepare to Frog-March?

With the New York Times journalist Judith Miller being jailed today for refusing a court order to reveal sources which would lead to answering who might have outed Valerie Plame, the wife of retired ambassador Joseph Wilson, in her role as a CIA operative, speculation has been going on all day as to who Miller is protecting by refusing to reveal her sources, with President Bush's chief political advisor, Karl Rove, leading the list. The illegal public revelation of Plame's work may very well have led to lives being lost, due to the now public knowledge around the world that Plame worked for the CIA, possibly jeopardizing the relationships and very lives of her contacts in other countries. Someone outed her, it seems, as an attack upon former ambassador Wilson, who took a publicly negative view on the whole WMD fiasco, as a sort of payback. Wilson has previously been quoted in the past as saying that he looks forward to Rove being "frog-marched" in handcuffs, out of the White House on his way to jail. Although Rove may or may not indeed be the leaker, we here at Fiat Lux are also hoping to see the guy hop.

Last night I was watching nightline, and the story was called something like "A tale of two journalists" or something like that. The reporter from the Times got off because his source gave him the ok to go ahead and talk (is that right? Hmm, I think so) In anycase, Im wondering how it is that the person Miller is protecting can live with themselves. Why doesnt that person just come forward and let the lady off the hook.

The confusing thing is that there could be multiple sources; therefore the source that released the Time magazine reporter from the confidentiality agreement may or may not be the same source that Judith Miller was using. It has been believed that the source(s)is a high level official, so this person(s)may have a lot to lose. It would not be the first time a politician threw a little person "under the bus"in order to save themselves. Rove is notorious for this sort of thing, but we'll just have to see...
