Some of you have emailed me for a complete translation of the article. However, all the juicy bits are already below, plus it's kinda illegal for me to post a full English version of an article of which I don't own the publishing rights.
Meanwhile, Rogier sent me this link which allegedly contains pictures of Sgrena's car. Ever since since hearing her story, I couldn't stop myself from thinking: "Ma'am, if the Americans had wanted you dead, you bloody well would be just that." The pictures seem to corroborate that assessment. There's only a single bullet hole in the windshield. That's very consistent with measured use of force and an attempt to take out the driver and/or the engine (mind you, it was dark). It is absolutely not consistent with an attempt to murder to Sgrena or firing 300-400 bullets.
Oh, and Rome? Could this article about you having paid a ransom for Sgrena please not be true? I'm fast running out of places in Europe where I still want to go on holidays (France, Germany and Spain were already off the list), and the weather in the UK really sucks.
Peaktalk also has a roundup on Sgrena, and offers a link to this gem, a quote of Sgrena in Corriere della Sera:
I have not said that the Americans wanted to kill me, I have only said that the mechanics of this fact is the mechanics of an ambush.
Hand me some of that magic toad, will you?
