The face of Italy

 From FoxNews:

Sobbing and clasping her hands together in prayer, a kidnapped Italian journalist appeared on a new video Wednesday, pleading for her life and calling on U.S.-led troops to pull out of Iraq.

"You must end the occupation, it's the only way we can get out of this situation," Giuliana Sgrena said in the videotape, delivered anonymously to Associated Press Television News.

There is some speculation that since she's actually an anti-war protester, the whole thing could be a hoax.

I think that we all should remember the very brave and noble words and actions of Italian hostage Fabrizio Quattrocchi as a badge of honor for the Italian people. I'll let his courage be the face I have of Italy, and not let any others ruin it.
