Photos of Giuliana Sgrena’s Car

Rusty Shackleford has several photos, purportedly of the car Giuliana Sgrena was riding in during last Friday’s shooting incident. If they are geniune, they provide rather definitive proof that her account of events is a whopping lie.

    Gosh, a lie, and from such a respected source! Who’d of thought that from a pure socialist/communist reporter? Such a surprise, and such a disappointment. NOT!

    Actually, it turns out that Rusty Shackleford is lying, and the pictures were not of the car in which Sgrena was travelling on March 5, but one which was damaged on February 5, the day after she was kidnapped. These hoax photos only prove not only that the rightwing cannot tell the truth about anything anymore; its sole purpose is to defend the indefensible.

    The car in La Republica looks much better that the AP photo.
