Sgrena Incident Update: Troops Cleared

Via Power Line comes this report from the New York Post.

«The car was about 130 yards from a checkpoint when the soldiers flashed their lights to get it to stop. They fired warning shots when the car was within 90 yards of the checkpoint, but at 65 yards, they used deadly force. Calipari was killed and Sgrena wounded.»

Plainly speaking, they acted within the rules of engagement that Calipari probably understood but did not practice just that once.

Will the European press be reporting it? It's still early days.
