Italy didn't plan safe escape for hostage (Rowan Scarborough, 3/08/05, THE WASHINGTON TIMES)

Italian security forces failed to make arrangements for safe passage out of Iraq for a freed Italian reporter, whose car was fired on by U.S. troops, killing intelligence agent Nicola Calipari who brokered the reporter's release, according to an internal Pentagon memo.
