The shooting of the car containing the recently released Italian journalist by American troops was unfortunate. It is still too soon to know whether the fault lied with the driver of the car or the American troops, but we can be confident of one thing. The journalist is biased and therefore not a credible witness. According to the New York Times:
Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena, freed from kidnappers on Friday, said U.S. troops may have deliberately targeted her car as she traveled to Baghdad airport because Washington opposed Italy's policy of dealing with kidnappers.Perhaps she worked for Eason Jordan of CNN.
