How to get to the bottom of the Plame affair.

The whitehouse has repeatedly stated that it wants to do whatever necessary to get to the truth about the leaking of Valerie Plame’s covert status. Given the arguments they advance in the preceeding post, are they willing to use torture to force Judith Miller to reveal her sources? If someone is obstructing the investigation into the exposure of our international information sources, isn’t that supporting the terrorists? See a tongue-in-cheek newsreport suggesting this.

Oh. Wait. Nevermind. She’s protecting someone inside the whitehouse who leaked this information. That makes it different, I guess. It does raise a question, though: if the whitehouse is cooperating fully, why is she still in jail?
