THE ITALIAN GOVERNMENT MAY HAVE A LITTLE EGG ON ITS FACE after seizing a shipment of "smuggled" US-bound AK-47's from a Turkish ship. Debra here. After braying that the weapons had been "hidden" on the ship for smuggling purposes, the Italian government sheepishly disclosed that - surprise! - the weapons had valid permits to be imported in the U.S.
Naturally, however, the article ends with the comment, "...authorities continue to investigate." And even more naturally, the weapons will remain in Italy indefinitely.
