Irony? Or Moron-y?

You know, I've stuck up for Time reporter Matthew Cooper on Kevin Drum's site. But this is ridiculous.

Cooper testified in the Plame grand jury investigation today. Then he spoke to reporters outside the courthouse:

Cooper implored special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald to wrap up the case soon so the grand jury can be dismissed. When that happens, Miller will be freed.

The moronic part: Cooper failed to mention that it's been his and Miller's refusal to testify that's prevented the investigation from being wrapped up:

[Special Prosecutor] Fitzgerald, in urging the high court to reject the reporters' requests for protection, wrote that by the fall of 2004 his investigation "was for all practical purposes complete except for the testimony of Miller and Cooper."
