A Horrible Mistake…

And an attention whore.
Via Ken we get a great post from Baldilocks about the terrible accident that occured this weekend in Iraq. I feel deep sympathy for the family of Nicola Calipari who was killed, but for this “journalist” Giuliana Sgrena I feel nothing but disgust.
An un-embedded journalist who went to Iraq to sniff around and stir up shit for her communist paper back home, she was snatched up by terrorists a month ago. Aside form the many millions spent by the Italian Government as it fretted over her safety there are indications that the government also paid as much as $10 million ransom. How many roadside bombs will that buy? How many thousands of Iraqi citizens may die now because of you Giuliana? Your self-serving description of Nicola’s death (“Nicola threw himself on to protect me and then suddenly I heard his last breath as he died on top of me”) makes me want to vomit; his blood is literally on your hands but all you can think of is yourself and your agenda:

Speaking from her hospital bed where she is being treated, Sgrena told Sky Italia TV it was possible the soldiers had targeted her because Washington opposes Italy’s dealings with kidnappers that may include ransom payments.
“The United States doesn’t approve of this (ransom) policy and so they try to stop it in any way possible.”

No we don’t approve of it you stupid little idiot because it will lead to hundreds, if not thousands, of deaths. And you and your stupid, outdated ideas and agenda are not worth our time to ‘target.’
Let me assure you, signora, that if our soldiers had decided to target you there wouldn’t be enough left to make one helping of bolognese.
*update – THS let me know (between bites of birthday cake) that Captain Ed’s on this too.
*update – Michelle Malkin has a good round up as well.

  5. John says:

    300 or 400 rounds she claims hit her car? What caliber, .177?

  6. Mr. Bingley says:

    Exactly John. If they were going as slow as she claimed, and these hundreds of rounds were fired, well…

  7. The Real JeffS says:

    Yeah, her story is crap, and a disservice to Nicola Calipari and the Iraqis that $10 million will kill.

  8. Her ego driven fantasy not withstanding, to hang it on us, as if it were our fault, while speeding at NIGHT, along the most DANGEROUS highway in the country and REFUSING to STOP, the day after the U.S. hits 1500 of our kids dead, with HOW MANY from suicide bombers and IED’s…what was that Dave said about Harvard?

  9. Italian Communist Journalist is Full of Prosciutto

    It is sad that Nicola Calipari was killed. It is sadder that his death is being exploited by the very woman he was sent to save In the end, Lt. Dan tells Forrest Gump, “I never thanked you for saving my life.” Nicola and the soldiers saved Sgrena’s l…

    I said “fuck Harvard.” And look: now I can tell that it does, indeed, bear repeat use.
