    Miller & Cooper should both be compelled to spill the beans --- this is the Fed's looking into a very serious charge.  If they don't, they should be jailed --- and let's put them in Gitmo--- at least they could report on whether there is torture going on.  I believe that reporters have a right to keep their sources confidential, however, when a Federal crime is commited, there should be no hiding behind the 1st Amendment -- the prosecutor isn't trying to restrict our right to free speech; he's trying to get to the bottom of who leaked a CIA operatives name to the press.
    Hey while we're putting Miller & Cooper in Gitmo, i think the SP should fly Novak to AbuGhraib -- and let him report on the "progress" there.  
    I just don't believe that ANYONE should be excused when a Federal Crime has been committed-- and reporters not wanting to reveal there sources should be the first ones jailed.....
    just my 2 cents worth.
