Sgrena: I was an American target -:

"The freed Italian hostage Giuliana Sgrena suggested that U.S. soldiers deliberately tried to kill her, fueling what could possible be a growing diplomatic rift between Rome and Washington.
Il Manifesto journalist Sgrena's convoy was attacked by U.S. forces when being driven her to Baghdad airport, after Italian intelligence services managed to negotiate her release. One of Italy's top intelligence officials was killed trying to protect Sgrena who along with two others suffered gun wounds.
Sgrena said she may have been a target because the US opposed negotiations with her kidnappers.
'Everyone knows that the Americans don't want hostages to be freed by negotiations, and for that reason, I don't see why I should rule out that I was their target,' Sgrena told a television news channel on Sunday"

a the truth has come out ,she has said the car was not speeding and they shot at her delibretly.i bet those soldiers downed a bottle of j,ack daniel's which made them think the car was speeding.but what will happen if italy decides to withdraw its troops,it would be another blow for bush as other county's may follow.
