Now, things get interesting

Judith Miller has apparently just "discovered" some notes from an earlier meeting with Scooter Libby:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A New York Times reporter has given investigators notes from a conversation she had with a top aide to Vice President Dick Cheney weeks earlier than was previously known, suggesting White House involvement started well before the outing of a CIA operative, legal sources said.

Times reporter Judith Miller discovered the notes -- about a June 2003 conversation she had with Cheney's chief of staff, Lewis "Scooter" Libby -- after her testimony before the grand jury last week, the sources said on Friday. She turned the notes over to federal prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald and is expected to meet him again next Tuesday, the sources said.

Oops. This doesn't necessarily mean Judy perjured herself. But it certainly seems like it. If that's the case, the deal she had with Fitz is finished. That would mean if Judy wants to avoid serious jail time, she'll be talking not just about Plame, but about everything. And as we all know, Judy was thoroughly plugged in to the efforts to hype/invent WMD issues in the run-up to, and aftermath of, the Iraq war.

That's the good news. The bad news is that it would be extremely unlikely for Fitzgerald to get things wrapped up in the next 3 weeks. I don't know how much longer I can take the suspense.
