Italian Hostage Hoax: Terrorists to Release Giuliana Sgrena
As predicted, Italian hostage Giuliana Sgrena is to be released:
Since it has become absolutely clear that the Italian prisoner is not involved in espionage for the infidels in Iraq, and in response to the call from the Muslim Clerics Association, we in the Jihad Organization will release the Italian prisoner in the coming daysI've been saying that this was either a hoax or that the terrorists will let her go once they find out she's an anti-American activist from the begining. To quote myself earlier today:
Just be sure to cite The Jawa Report when she is released, writes an exclusive story about her 'ordeal', and then slams the US in it for forcing the poor innocent mujahadin to resort to such tactics.Hat tip: Chad Evans and Kevin Aylward. Chad has more. So does Digger. Shamelessly linked at OTB. Related posts: Italian Hostage: Hoax or the Fruits of anti-American Activism?

You bloggers are not journalists, and you are not there. Know what you are saying before you open your mouths.
And the 2 living witnesses in the car will support Giuliana's story. So IMO, the US Military and the Coward in Chief will have yet another self-inflicted setback.
Bottom line: you right-wing chicken hawks wanted Iraq. You got it. You broke it. And now I'm paying for it.

What a coincidence, that the Italian agent was shot in the temple and she was told a story by a “caring, Islamic Freedom Fighter” that the Americans did not want her to return alive. Did anyone that came out alive before ever said that? Moreover, I knew our boys had good marksmanship; but damn that's good considering the car was coming at them at a high rate of speed. Well, the soldier should at least get a commendation for marksmanship, and not face a court Marshall as some are probably going to ask for.
That poor bastard died on the way maybe but the bullet came from an Arab; the whole thing was a setup.
Time to start cleaning up Europe also. Iraq and Iran are only the beginning. I rather am a part of the Destroyer of Worlds Nation than to live under a regime that will enslave my mother, sisters, daughters and granddaughters. We must wake up and insure the future of our western culture or die trying. They are certainly trying to expand and are killing us by the thousands. They are multiplying and breeding like rabbits and quietly invading Europe and Asia. They want the same for the Americas. We can’t be self-absorbed and not count Europe and specially Latin America, since they are next door. If they go communist or Islamic we will feel it at home.
To all who agree thank, to all who do not, I no longer give a rats ass…
Read the next issue of Oriana fallaci's book "The force of Reason" when the English version comes out in September. She is not as angry as in the last one, but she does go into the dangerous growth of Islam in Europe with chilling detail.

This has "make the U.S. look bad and get rich doing it" written all over it. Since when did terrorist organizations "vote" as is suggested this no name group did to release her? And do I have to remind anybody how incredibly odd how she was taken. Ohh Im talking on the phone with no worries in front of one of the most dangerous buildings in Iraq. I'm part Italian and personally how shes acted and the whole affair surrounding her "abduction" and subsequent "trial" and release make me sick.
If you ask me, this whole thing is a ruse to first: get abducted by a fake terrorist group (probably only one or two people, likely more Italians), two: split the ransom insurance with her captors, and finally three: shoot the brave Italian agent who discovers the truth and blame it on the Americans. This guy got shot in the temple at close range it sounds like, so my guess is they charged an American checkpoint using the dead Italians body as a sheild (it had a flak jaket on, hmmmm. . .)
Doesn't all this seem a little too convient to anybody else?
