Troll BS: Italian Journalist shot by GIs in Iraq (229* d) RE: BS: Italian Journalist shot by GIs in Iraq 15 Mar 05

Dianavan - She's anti-American by her own admission. I would think that the chance to inflict damage on America would be reason enough.

Even if the investigation proves her wrong, the accusation has been made and the damage done. Dr. Goebels knew the value of the lie in shaping opinions. There are plenty of people who are ready to believe the worst about us, regardless of the final outcome.

Her story keeps changing. First it was a tank and 300 to 400 bullets. Well, I saw pictures of an armored SUV that was hit 35 times by heavy machinegun fire. All the windows were gone, the four people inside dead, and it was obvious that the car had been in a fight.

The pics that I saw of Ms. Sgrena's car showed 1 (one) bullet hole in the front windshield and a flat left front tire.

Either the shooters were (a) such good shots that they were able to put 300 to 400 shots through one hole or (b) such lousy shots that they missed altogether.

She also said that the shots came from the right and from the rear.
With a dead man on top of her, I don't see how she could tell. from the right I could accept; the bullet hole in the windshield was on the right-hand side. But from the rear?

If the windshield hole was made from the rear, where is the entry hole?

I also read that in a BBC interview, she said that they shined a light into the car and then started shooting.

But wait! Didn't she say that there was no light?

Ah well.

I found most of this info from a bloger called Jawa and on his links.I found the site when I Googled "Sgrenas car photos". The photos were first published in "Republica", an Italian publication.

No joy on a map as yet.
