Embattled CIA Leak Reporter Miller Leaves <i>New York Times </i>


The New York Times reporter whose controversial role in the CIA leak investigation captured world attention has retired from the newspaper.

Judith Miller announced the end of her 28-year career at the Times in a letter published Thursday. She said she resigned because she had become the subject of news stories, something a reporter never wants to happen.

Ms. Miller spent 85 days in jail for refusing a court order to testify about conversations she had with a confidential source in the CIA leak case. She was freed after agreeing to testify before a grand jury investigating the leak of a covert CIA operative's identity.

Several of her colleagues at the Times criticized Ms. Miller for her actions and for writing previous articles that suggested Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.
