Keywords: CIA; International; Justice/FBI; reporters privilege; subpoena

The Obama Justice Department has decided to continue the Bush administration's quest to compel a New York Times reporter to testify about confidential sources in a book he published about the CIA, The New York Times reported.

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. has renewed a January 2008 subpoena seeking the confidential sources of James Risen, a Times reporter who won a Pulitzer Prize for articles exposing the National Security Agency’s warrantless surveillance program. He was subpoenaed in connection with a book he published in 2006, "State of War: The Secret History of the C.I.A. and the Bush Administration."
