C.Y.A. at the N.Y.T.

The grand jury investigation of a possibly illegal leak of a CIA operative’s identity isn’t he only relevant part of the story. The Associated Press is reporting infighting between Judith Miller, a reporter to whom Valerie Plame’s identity was allegedly revealed, and her editors at the New York Times.

In a memo to the staff, Executive Editor Bill Keller says Miller "seems to have misled" the newspaper’s Washington bureau chief, Phil Taubman, who said Miller told him in the fall of 2003 that she was not one of the recipients of a leak about the identity of covert CIA officer Valerie Plame.

The conflict, in which Miller and her Times bosses are now embroiled publicly, may complicate—or at lease divert attention from—the central question of the investigation. But if it turns out Miller herself is part of the reason why the story got out of hand, that could change things significantly.

The plot thickens.
