Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena : US troops fired on the convoy transporting her

An Italian mediator was killed by US troops, the paper said

Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena, earlier reported released in Iraq, was wounded when US troops fired on the convoy transporting her, her newspaper said.

Freed Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena was wounded when US troops opened fire on a convoy carrying her to safety, and an Italian mediator who help negotiate her release was killed, her newspaper Il Manifesto said on Friday.

"She was going in a car to the airport with three people from the Italian security forces. US forces opened fire on the car. She is fine but there are wounded," Il Manifesto’s editorial director Francesco Paterno said.

Sgrena was taken to a US-run hospital for treatment for wounds to her shoulder, the newspaper said.

Italy’s Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi confirmed late on Friday that US troops had fired on Sgrena’s convoy as it approached a checkpoint.

Shot dead

Berlusconi’s office also announced that the US ambassador to Italy had been summoned over the matter.

"As the fire came from American forces, I decided to summon the US ambassador immediately," Berlusconi told a news conference.

The mediator, an Italian secret service agent, was shot dead in the incident, Il Manifesto said.

Sgrena, 56, was kidnapped by armed men near Baghdad University where she had been interviewing refugees from last year’s US assault on Falluja.

Il Manifesto’s editorial director Francesco Paterno said he had been informed of Sgrena’s release by an Italian official in charge of the secret service.

"It’s been confirmed. Gianni Letta confirmed it. They have her," said Paterno, without giving any further details.

Italy’s President Carlo Azeglio Ciampi also confirmed that Sgrena had been released.

Gee, maybe there’s something about Falluja that the U.S. administration would rather we didn’t know about.

"Writing in Italy’s Il Manifesto newspaper, Sgrena said her kidnappers had warned her to pay attention once she was freed, because the U.S. wanted her dead. At the time, she judged their words to be ``superfluous and ideological,’’ she wrote.

``They told me to beware because `there are Americans who don’t want you to return’,’’ Sgrena said in the article. When she was shot, her captors’ advice ``risked acquiring the taste of the most bitter of truths,’’ she wrote. "

This happens because of the poor communication between troops and checkpoints and the generally poor training that US Troops have. The training is rushed, it borders on sadistic and really...what the hell are they doing there anyway?

It was not the first "accident". Bush regrets to deeply. But it is not only Fallujah. During the first
days of the Iraq war 50.000 Iraqi soldiers sitting like ducks in military areas have been cluster
bombed.

"When The Associated Press in Baghdad asked the U.S. military to see the vehicle on Saturday, the military said it didn’t know where it was."
http://www.mercurynews.com/mld/merc...

Not much else newsworthy in the AP account, but this is unbelieveable- ’they don’t know where the car is’. The incompetence excuse is getting very old. And then there’s this:

"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."

This whole situation is a bit ridiculous. Shouldn’t the headline actually read:

"Communist responsible for the death of one of Italy’s best Secret Service Agents"

After all, if she hadn’t happened to get herself kidnapped in what appears to be a farcical and possibly staged abduction, the secret service agent would never have been in country in the first place.

I didn’t write the original message - but is this site just for left-wing pie holders (see picture)? People should re-read the utterly absurd things that have been written about the U.S. above - I don’t worship the U.S. but I also don’t take what communists say seriously. Also - could you please post a picture of her in her War Correspondent Clothing instead of holding a pie? I mean it makes it look like she wasn’t a member of a risk taking profession.

So the presumption is a "communist" never tells the truth according to apologist of U.S. occupation forces. So if a "communist" says the earth is round, one must assert that it is flat?

The fact of the matter, there is NO...NO story that Sgrena’s kidnapping was STAGED, that’s is just
baseless ranting from a bush reporter. NOT even the U.S. goverment has EVER said anything, indicating that is was even a possibility. So FORGET about it!

As far as poor training, not all U.S. occupation forces are "poorly Trained"..some are, not all, in fact
IsraEL according to numerous reports, has trained U.S. forces in the art of controlling towns,roads and
yes even check points.

WE DO know they passed through several U.S. check points with NO problem, so why did the last open fire?

Not meaning to step in where I am probably not wanted, but, unfortunately one must always presume that Communists are lying, for history records that the only thing they have shown more energy and aptitude for [than lying] is cold blooded mass murder.

Crawl back under your rock, what would you know about communists except what your heard from McCarthy....you’re too old pops to keep up with the times. The "communists" are our new best friend, they are our biggest trading partner (Bush granted them "Most Favored Nation" status) and they are loaning us enough money to keep Bush’s humongus deficit from sinking our country...so go kiss some communist and tell them thank you for doing for you what your own government wouldn’t, keeping the nation solvent.....if you don’t know any truth don’t waste our time here.

Two salient points my angry young friend: 1. It was William Jefferson Blythe Clinton who granted them "Most Favored" status. 2. Actually I am just the perfect age; Young enough to avoid the draft [that will either get you or totally disrupt your life] and keep your girlfriend warm at night. 2. old enough so that when you get back from Iraq [or Syria, Iran, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, China, Toronto, fill in the blank] the money you pay in taxes will just nicely cover my Social Security check. Thank you ever so much you patriotic, heroic he-man you!

Why is it that the Bush Butt Kissers do not want to acknowledge that the "communists" are keeping our counrty out of bankruptcy? Are you dilibertly blind to that fact, or are you just an ungreatful old fuck?

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)
