LGF is all over the Giuliana Sgrena case. In latest news, the White House says it is “absurd” for the former hostage to claim US forces deliberately targeted her.

    1. Italian women are like that.  Grudges, suspicions, and resentments play a larger role in life than usual.

    1. What’s the world coming to when the army gets in trouble for shooting at a commie?

    1. I wonder how many more Iraqis and Americans will die because this commie managed to help the socalled resistance to get their murdering hands on millions.

    1. This is a setup pure and simple.

      The italian sheila was happy to help the terrorists as it fitted in with her strident anti americanism. Bit like that dill Mulhearn who was a human shield for Saddam but can’t be bothered to be a human shield for the average Iraqi punter.

      But more importantly, the US soldiers should be court martialled for poor shooting, how did they manage to miss her, the world can do without another whinging commie!

    1. She’s the second Italian communist journalist to get herself taken hostage and then “rescued” after payment of a ransom (payoff).  I expect it was all meant to provide more pro-terrorist, anti-American propaganda for that rag she writes for.  I’ll bet she’s pretty surprised at how it actually turned out.  She’s directly responsible for the death of the Italian secret service agent who protected her worthless ass with his own body.  Maybe the next Italian commie bitch will think twice before trying it.

    1. what happened is really simple:

      1. the Italian government, despite tough talk on terrorism, decided to pay a ransom to the terrorists who weere holding (or hosting?) Sgrena

      2. because they were paying terrorists, they had to run their own intelligence operation without telling the Americans

      Are you kidding? She managed to get a hated Tool of the Capitalist Oppressor killed? Her comrades are probably seething with envy.

    1. The Americans need to pull the finger out and get a detailed account out there. At the moment the Italians (communists) are driving the story and the Americans are taking PR damage.

      Just denying the Italian allegations is not enough.

    1. Italian: We approached the checkpoint at what we consider to be a safe and reasonable speed.

      American: They were speeding at us like a bat out of hell.

      The funny (as in weird funny, not ha-ha funny) thing is both statements are correct, as anybody who has ever driven in Rome can verfiy.

    1. Michelle Malkin has more: CNN was inventing news again. Sgrena’s own article says:

      ”…Losing control of the car in a street full of water in Baghdad and maybe wind up in a bad car accident…”

      To lose control they must have been driving pretty fast!

    1. Fund-raising for the insurgents should be a risky business.

      Posted by rexie on 03/08 at 04:49 AM • #


    1. I think the American administration has taken the wrong tack here.  They should be saying ‘Our troops are the best trained in the world.  That our troops would have targeted Sgrena and failed is absurd.  If we had targeted her she would be dead.

      Frankly I feel sorry for Nicola Calipari and his family.  That he should be killed protecting trash like Sgrena (who is now better able to sread her vitriol due to the increased exposure) is a terrible double blow for Italy.

    1. Another botched KGB mission (of course its a conspiracy theory, but doesnt Moscow make them)?

  1. What else would someone like her say?
    Let’s hear this big Fallujah secret she says she has, the one the Americans were supposedly trying to kill her for. I love the way these idiots, when released, thank their captors for their treatment! What the f*ck!
    RebeccaH you said it all!
