We promised our readers a hard look at The Times's part in the White House leak drama as soon as our reporter was out of legal jeopardy. We have delivered on that promise. The package we are giving readers includes Judy Miller's account of what she told the Special Counsel. No other reporter drawn into this investigation has provided such a detailed report. We're relieved that we can finally put this story in the hands of our readers, who will draw their own conclusions.

Catherine Mathis
VP, Corporate Communications

Correction. The first edition of the article identified Judith Miller as CIA officer Valerie Plame Wilson. Rather unsurprisingly, she is not.
