The widely-read blog at Xymphora.blogspot.com supports our analysis [here] of the Giuliana Sgrena shooting. "One can conclude that the attack on Sgrena's car was a professional hit," writes Xymphora -who goes on to elaborate:
"Adding it all up, it appears that John Negroponte became aware that Giuliana Sgrena was leaving Iraq with dangerous information about what American forces had been up to in committing war crimes in Falluja. Negroponte's experience in Honduras gave him a certain expertise in covering up human rights violations, and he ordered his own personal bodyguard to assassinate Sgrena in a staged incident which was supposed to look like the usual problem at an American checkpoint in Iraq."The Fallujah angle has been cited before, but I don't think it was the prime motive. More soon.
