Shot hostage disputes U.S. account? – Shot hostage disputes U.S. account – Mar 6, 2005

Given that this article states very clearly at the end, that the aforementioned hostage and her newspaper have been “fiercely against the war”, I have to wonder about the veracity of her statements with regard to US troops. Somehow, I suspect those soldiers told the truth, and she, who was in the back seat of the car, had no clue what happened because she was too busy talking about how happy she was to be released and made up her own version, or gave the best story that made sense based on what she experienced, and her political views have colored the telling of her story.

It would be nice if, every once in a while, people would just say “It all happened so fast that I have no idea why they opened fire on us.”

I’d be willing to bet that this is far closer to the truth than the rose colored version she’s feeding the media.
