Pants on fire, eh Toots?

US satellite recorded checkpoint shooting, shows speed of Italian car:
A US satellite reportedly recorded a checkpoint shooting in Iraq last month, enabling investigators to reconstruct how fast a car carrying a top Italian intelligence official and a freed hostage was traveling when US troops opened fire.

The report, which aired Thursday on CBS News, said US investigators concluded from the recording that the car was traveling at a speed of more than 60 miles (96 km) per hour.

Giuliana Sgrena has said the car was traveling at a normal speed of about 30 miles an hour when the soldiers opened fired, wounding her and killing Nicola Calipari, the Italian agent who had just secured her release from a month's captivity.
"Month's captivity"? More like a paid vacation with her terrorist pals. Good ole Giuliana, if her mouth is open, she's lying. (Hat Tip: Betsy's Page)
