The Sgrena Code, Part II (via Chrenkoff)
Chrenkoff has photos up of the car used to collect Giuliana Sgrena from her hostage takers. For a car supposedly riddled with 300-400 rounds of ammo from troops and...let's remember...tanks, one has to look quite hard to notice the solitary bullethole in the windshield. Talk about American precision weaponry!
From commenter davsun:
This is sgrena's description of the car from BBC interview:
"Did the Americans continue to fire when your car had come to a halt?"
"Our car was destroyed. And then the driver got out and was shouting 'we're Italian, we're Italian'. So they came and they saw what happened."
Maybe she was rescued in multiple cars?
One of Chrenkoff's readers also has translated a report from a Dutch journalist. The article begins:
[BEIRUT] "Be careful not to get kidnapped", I said to the female journalist sitting next to me on a small plane flying to Baghdad. "Oh, no", she said, "we are on the side of the Iraqi people. No Iraqi will kidnap us."
You've just gotta love the brilliance and integrity of European Communist Journalists.
The entire post and the article is worth reading if you haven't already.
Chrenkoff preceeded this with a more comprehensive analysis in The Sgrena Code (Part I).
