The more that comes out on this, the worse it looks for the Italian government and Giuliana Sgrena. Her story is absolutely falling apart at the seams, and now, it appears, so is the Italian governments version.
ROME - US authorities in Iraq were kept in the dark about an Italian operation to free a kidnapped journalist which ended in debacle with an intelligence officer killed by GIs, an Italian general was quoted Saturday as saying.
Mario Marioli, a deputy commander of the US-led coalition troops in Iraq, was quoted by the Italian newspaper La Repubblica as saying: "I asked Calipari if I should inform our American allies of the hostage-freeing operation, but his reply was that under no circumstances was the ally to be informed."
So typical of the MSM (both foreign and domestic), the US military is aways guilty, untill they prove otherwise.
