Britain’s dilettante left Guardian newspaper contains a detail about the shooting of Italian communist Giuliana Sgrena that takes this story to the absolute height (or depth) of absurdity: Outrage as US soldiers kill hostage rescue hero.
Sgrena told colleagues the vehicle was not travelling fast and had already passed several checkpoints on its way to the airport. The Americans shone a flashlight at the car and then fired between 300 and 400 bullets at if from an armoured vehicle. Rather than calling immediately for assistance for the wounded Italians, the soldiers’ first move was to confiscate their weapons and mobile phones and they were prevented from resuming contact with Rome for more than an hour.
Three hundred to four hundred rounds from an armored vehicle ... and there were survivors? OK, go ahead, pull my other leg.
Why is anyone taking these obviously false statements seriously?
