Libby Subpoenas The NY Times And Its Reporters

Of course we knew this was coming. But still, it will be instructive to watch the contortions the New York Times goes through to lie and obstruct justice.

Which of course are the trumped up charges against Libby.

From the terrorist enablers at Reuters:

New York Times reporter Judith Miller was fired by the New York Times for not lying under oath.

NY Times subpoenaed in CIA leak case

Thu Mar 16, 2006

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Lawyers for a former aide to Vice President Dick Cheney have issued subpoenas to The New York Times and one of its former reporters to provide information in his obstruction of justice case, the Times reported on Thursday.

Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Cheney's former chief of staff, has pleaded not guilty to five counts of perjury, making a false statement and obstruction of justice over leaks about the identity of a CIA operative.

Former Times reporter Judith Miller testified before the grand jury after serving 85 days in jail to protect a source of the disclosure who was later identified as Libby. She left the Times in November.

The subpoenas from Libby's lawyers request Miller's notes and other materials.

Court papers released in February show that Libby was authorized to disclose classified information to reporters in an effort to counteract a charge by diplomat Joe Wilson that the Bush administration twisted intelligence on Iraq to justify the 2003 invasion of the country.

Libby's charges stem from the leak of the identity of Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, which effectively ended her career at the CIA.

A New York Times Co. spokeswoman could not immediately be reached for comment.

I wonder how many more Times employees will be fired for telling the truth? Probably not many.

It's a such a foreign concept at the "Paper Of Treason."
