http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/4483949.stm Let's ask ourselves, did we hear about similar cases previously? Nope. Is it simply coincidence? It is possible of course, but what are alternative explanations? Ms Sgrena is too naive. She herself is of zero interest for USA secret services. But Nicola Calipari could be very dangerous. Is it strange? Not at all. Mr.Calipari no doubt knew many interesting thing. What is possible scenario? During a meeting with kidnappers mr.Calipari saw a person who (and he knew it pretty well) was American agent. It is one step from there to prove involvement of Americans in kidnapping of Italian journalist from communist newspaper. Look, the checkpoint was a temporary one. No doubt that there is a lot of permanent checkpoints on the road to airport and the car was checked (all cars are being checked on this road). So, no doubt that American knew about the car and about passengers. Probably an officer from CIA was orderer to kill mr.Calipari. He used a sniper to kill him for sure. But as a smokescreen "unfortunate incident" was arranged. US troops were told about suspicious car, that probably terrorist were in it.
