Hmmm...US troops fire at freed hostage

Interesting quote from the Italian PM.

The prime minister added he had "immediately" summoned the US ambassador, adding he would have to "clarify the behaviour of the US troops for such a serious
incident, for which someone will have to take responsibility".

Definitely something to watch.

Reading through the rest of the article, the author chose an interesting juxtaposition, which I found morbidly humorous...

Two weeks ago, Ms Sgrena appeared in a video begging for help and urging
foreign troops to leave Iraq. In the emotional footage, a tense and tearful Ms Sgrena said: "You must end the occupation, it's the only way we can get out
of this situation. I'm counting on you."

Shortly after the video appeared, the Italian Senate voted to extend the country's military presence in Iraq.

We'll see exactly who Mr. B wants to hold accountable for what seems like an accident, it could get somewhat interesting.

Of course, DU'ers jump to the conclusion that this vindicates Eason Jordan, and that our men and women are "trigger happy bastards." The American Left ladies and gentlemen.
