Some People’s Names Just Keep Turning Up

…like bad pennies. Geesh.

ROME – A U.S. soldier is being investigated for his alleged role in the March killing in Baghdad of an Italian secret service agent, who had just secured the release of a journalist held hostage, a prosecutor and news reports said Thursday.
Rome prosecutors are investigating the March 4 death of Nicola Calipari, who was killed by U.S. gunfire near a checkpoint as he headed to the Baghdad airport with Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena, who was held hostage by militants for a month.
…According to Apcom, prosecutors also are considering attempted murder charges concerning the other two people in the car: Sgrena and a second secret service agent, who was driving. Both were wounded.

Enough already.

    If the circumstances are correct as originally reported, the U.S. should send Sgrena a bill for the expended ammo, and Calipari’s family should have a big lawsuit against her (or whoever ordered the driver to keep going).
