The Shooting.

It had to come to this. A couple of weeks ago I noted how an Italian journalist was kidnapped and held hostage. Well you probably know the story by now, an Italian agent came with $ and sprung her. On the way to the airport they had their car shot up by American forces.

The angle getting a goodly amount of air time is her claim that the shooting was deliberate. The US forces deliberately targeted her for death. This is non-sense. If this was the case why is she still alive? It was a case of crazy driving and poor communication. So sorry when you hit a checkpoint you stop, if you don't you lible to be mistaken for a suicide bomber.
