This image was lost some time after publication.

As we speak (write?), Time reporter Matt Cooper — after months of litigation, ungranted petitions for certiorari, threats in all directions, a fight inside Norm Pearlstine's head, a dramatic farewell to his son, an equally dramatic (or perhaps not) release from his source, Judy Miller's incarceration, and Newsweek's revelation of an email to his boss — is finally testifying before special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald's grand jury.

Which means the double super secret is dead.

(And — shockingly — Time's Washburo ain't thrilled about that.)

Although, as our slutty sister points out, perhaps it was never quite as alive as we thought it was.

UPDATE: Testimony's done, reports sis. [Wonkette]
