High Fidelity

Italian Red Cross healed (and hid from US Army) four Iraqi terrorists in order to free Simona Pari and Simona Torretta, the two italian aid workers kidnapped in Iraq last september. The former commissioner of Italian Red Cross, Maurizio Scelli, disclosed it on an interview with the Turin newspaper La Stampa (via Mattinale). The Italian government denied any involvement, confirming its will to cooperate "frankly and loyally" with the American ally. Clearly, italian government has a peculiar understanding of what fidelity is. More details (in Italian) at Robinik, A Conservative Mind, JimMomo, Il Megafono, Liberali per Israele and Mattinale. In English: Little Green Footballs and Foreign Object Damage. (read the original post in italian)
