You may have heard the news recently about an Italian Intelligence officer getting shot while driving to a US checkpoint in Iraq. The officer was
saving an Italian journalist that was being held by insugents.
Not that I agree with negotiating with terrorists, but to each his own.
The early reports are that the officer was driving erratically towards the check point. A checkpoint I may add that has been the target of more than
one car bomb.
Do you think the US was justified in shooting this car, killing the Italian officer?
I see it as a tragic set of events, but soldiers only have a few seconds to react, and seconds can cost their lives.
