According to the NYTimes here, reporter Judith Miller has been released from prison after 12 weeks. It seems that after 12 weeks, her confidential source is now providing her with a sufficient waiver of the privilege. Should this have happened earlier? Does it make a difference if the source turns out to be part of the administration? If the source has a tie to the administration, how could this have happened? Or was a waiver previously given, and if it was - why did she spend 12 weeks is prison?
