Italy issues report on agent's death

Remember when an Italian agent, Nicola Calipari, was gunned down by American soldiers as he tried to bring kidnappped Italian journalist, Guiliana Sgrena, to freedom?

The American investigation blamed the Italians for poor communications and failure to heed warnings.

But a Greek student at Bologna University managed to uncensor the censored American report. It turns out that the roadblock wasn't even supposed to be there at the time, in which case the American soldiers wouldn't have fired on, and killed, Calipari.

Italy's official report is now out, which blames the event on stress and inexperience of the American soldiers.

The official reports differ, which isn't suprising. What is yet to be seen is how much Italy, considered one of America's staunchest allies in Iraq, will continue to support the U.S.

Will we admit to this mea culpa? Doubtful. Will relations be molto buon? chi vivrà vedrà.
