Don't indict on Judy's evidence

Some are suggesting that Miller's testimony puts Libby in jeopardy on an obstruction or perjury charge. Really?
 
Here's why no such charge should ever be brought on a he said/she said conflict in which Miller is the she said even if you could find her testimony coherent about the June 23 meeting——which I confess I cannot.

From a fellow reporter:

"For some reason none of us had a tape recorder, so on the flight back to Casablanca we compared our notes from the one interview we'd had with a Moroccan general a few hours before. We wanted to be sure the phrases we'd scribbled down were accurate. But there was a problem. Judy had many more quotes in her notebook than I and another reporter had in ours. And Judy's were much better. Then I realized why. I'd done a lot more homework on that particular story than she did, and I was asking much more detailed questions. She'd written them down, and now she thought they came from the general, but many of the quotes actually were from ... me."

Or things like this from her own mouth...

"Mr. Fitzgerald asked if I could recall discussing the Wilson—Plame connection with other sources. I said I had, though I could not recall any by name or when those conversations occurred."

Or her own Editor's.....

""Judy seems to have misled" Times Washington bureau chief Bill Taubman about the extent of her involvement, Keller wrote.

Taubman asked Miller in the fall of 2003 whether she was among the reporters who had gotten leaks about the identity of covert CIA officer Valerie Plame.

"Ms. Miller denied it," the newspaper reported in a weekend story. "
