"I don't see why I should rule out that I could have been the target."
Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena, speaking to Italian television after being shot at by U.S. soldiers following her release by captors in Iraq. Nicola Calipari, the intelligence officer who negotiated her release, was killed in the attack. The U.S. government insists the shooting was an accidental case of "friendly fire," but Italian media and government officials have expressed outrage and suspicion, prompting a diplomatic crisis and a military probe into the incident.
