More Riddles

Betsy Newmark pretty much expressed my bafflement when she wrote this about Judith Miller's behavior:
So, she's been a martyr for press freedom even though it was completely unnecessary. If there isn't something more to this story, then she and the New York Times are grandstanding fools. I do not discount that hypothesis. Or perhaps there is something more behind the story.
The really irritating thing is that grand jury proceedings are secret (for good reasons), and we may never learn the answer to this particular riddle. Lots of good comments over at Betsy's. All I have is questions.

Now here's a very important riddle - one which we aren't going to solve. Howard of Oraculations wrote about the most important post in the blogosphere for the next three years, and it's about John McCain. You need to go over there and read it. Then think about what he is saying, because Howard is right.

The single indication we have about John McCain is McCain-Feingold, which is flatly and boldly unconstitutional. I hope I will not be forced to answer this particular question, but it is quite likely to occur.


Comments:
The Judith Miller thing is absolutely a riddle and makes very little sense. But yeah... sort of par for the course, eh?
 
The whole story gets odder and odder.
 
"The really irritating thing is that grand jury proceedings are secret (for good reasons), and we may never learn the answer to this particular riddle."

She owes us an explanation.
 
Legally she doesn't. I have read that her agreement to testify also involved an agreement by the prosecutor to sharply limit his questions, so that may have more to do with it.
