Steve Chapman, whose twice-weekly column for The Chicago Tribune is syndicated to about 50 newspapers, says reporters should give details on their sources to investigators in the case of the leak of a CIA officer's name.

In Chapman's Feb. 20, 2005, column on the case against Judith Miller of The New York Times and Matt Cooper of Time, he sides with the court, stating, "in this case, principle should yield to the need to protect agents who are serving their country."
