...that the Italians were shipping the car back to Italy?

9. Been gone a while. Can't figure what purpose this would serve-
but the article I saw was in the Army Times. Maybe they rigged the engine computer in this one to show it had been going 100 miles an hour in the rain and dark...can't trust a thing anymore.

2. Interesting.
just scratch the surface a little bit, and the American version falls apart like a $2.00 suit. Really, you don't even need to do that; the version of what happened is so patently phony even a pre-schooler smells a rat.

The interesting thing is, the Pentagon needs to stick with its story at this point. Can't go back on the facts! So they're probably trying to lay low & wait for the dust to settle.

And really, the explanation seems so paper-thin. And it's like they're not even trying to cover it up. There seems to be less and less effort being devoted to this kind of stuff.The lies and the inuendos are becoming less and less believable.

Has anybody else noticed this? It's like the mask is coming off......gradually..

4. Yes but WTH is going to be done about it?
Things like this keep happening and they get tossed down the rabbit hole. It is driving me crazy. So much is being ignored that I think it is going to have to get REALLY BAD before anything is changed. People are so blind and uninterested in the facts.

10. A lot of people probably have forgotten about it
I haven't but I'm sure some people have forgotten about it. I'm glad to hear an update on this though.

7. I notice it for sure
They just don't bother to put any effort into it anymore. Not even a good old-fashioned cover up, just a transparent lie and then forget about it.

8. I guess...
They don't want them to find out how simply shooting the engine could produce bullet holes all over the car.
