Culture of Life: Italian Edition

Body and Soul’s Jeanne d’Arc raises some very interesting questions about the death of Nicola Calipari, the Italian intelligence agent who was shot and killed earlier this month by American soldiers as he was transporting kidnap victim and Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena to safety, including:
When does our press start showing some interest in how and why Nicola Calipari died?
A fine question indeed. Surely, in light of that “culture of life” we’ve been celebrating, the loss of Mr. Calipari’s life, caused by our own hand, warrants some concern…

Jeanne covers some new information provided by Sgrena and posts some additional photos of the car in which they were traveling. Check it out. Just because the American press and (most of) the American people don’t care about this, doesn’t mean we shouldn’t, either.
