Freedom is not something to be held close, but given to all.

And what the F**K would you expect?

So, let's take a look at the incident. A reporter for an Italian Communist fishwrap is taken hostage in Iraq by insurgents (I have my suspicions about her "hostage" status, by the way), and a month of negotiations take place to win her freedom. She's finally freed by the insurgents, and while she is returning from her nightmare, she runs straight into a brand new one. Her car comes under fire from American troops, killing the Italian Intelligence officer that won her freedom, wounding another, and wounding the reporter in the fracas.

I have a very hard time buying into all of this. Of course, the MSM, in it's impartiality, makes the US Troops out to be the instigators of the whole thing, but let's take a look at the information we have seen thus far.

According to witnesses, the Italians were speeding towards a US checkpoint near the Baghdad airport. The driver ignored hand signals to stop, ignored arm signals, and even ignored flashing lights and warning shots. Folks, these are uniformed US soldiers! It's not like they were dressed in jeans and t-shirts. The soldiers are easily recognnized! Only after all of the warnings and signals were ignored, the order to fire was given in order to stop the vehicle. Soldiers shot into the engine block, and apparently, stray fire entered the passenger compartment of the car.

One dead, and two injured. This could have all been avoided, but the Italians, who up to this point had been working closely with American Intelligence to win the hostage's release, didn't even coodinate or inform the Americans that the hostage had been released! What kind of lunacy is this?

Like I said, I have my suspicions. I don't consider myself a conspiracy theorist, but I wonder if the whole incident was staged by someone with an agenda. It's not like this reporter was any great friend of the United States.
