Nick last checked in April 9th, saying he was trying to find a safe way home following two weeks of FBI interrogation, after an arrest in Mosul.
Thx, BT, I read your links. Something isn't right. 2 weeks of FBI interrogation!? And then released...gimme' a break.
The young American who was shown being decapitated on a videotape posted by an al-Qaida-linked Web site was never under U.S. custody despite claims from his family, coalition spokesman Dan Senor said Wednesday.
Senor told reporters that Berg, 26, from West Chester, Pa., was detained by Iraqi police in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul. The Iraqis informed the Americans, and the FBI met with Berg three times to determine what he was doing in Iraq.
Senor said that to his knowledge, "he (Berg) was at no time under the jurisdiction or detention of coalition forces."
However, calls by The Associated Press to police in Mosul failed to find anyone who could confirm Berg was held there or why.
The U.S.-led Coalition Provisional Authority controls Iraqi police and military.
One of the masked men in the video read a statement saying the beheading was revenge for the "Satanic degradation" of Iraqi prisoners by U.S. soldiers.
"If they think that acts like this will cause the American people to decide that the time to cut and run has come, they will find that the American people will have their resolve strengthened by atrocities like this."

How hard would it be for our intelligence community to find the proprietor of the website where the video was shown, use their powers of 'persuasion', and find out who these cracks are?
Hope we find them.
"I think a lot of people are fed up with the lack of civil rights this thing has caused," he said. "I don't think this administration is committed to democracy."

I smell foul play!
Nick Berg was detained by Iraqi police and later questioned by the FBI?! His parents filed a suit in federal court, claiming their son was illegally being held by US forces. He was released the very next day (after 13 days of being held by US forces), and he says he was not mistreated. Is that the last time his family heard from him?
Bangin, nice find.
I would think that the 'chain of events' starting with his arrest by I.P.
would find him in camp x-ray faster than he could say, Cuba.
This story does not add up.
My thoughts are with the Berg Family.

According to a report i just heard on CNN there are serious doubts about this guy actually being al-qaeda.
They said the voice isnt his, and the accent is incorrect.
Mr. Bergs own father is blaming the administration.
Nothing fits in this story...

If the killer was speaking Arabic with a hard-to-place accent, this opens up another can of worms. I know when I speak German, my american accent comes out, so people know that I'm either American or British. When someone from Russia, or Poland or France speaks German, you can tell the difference.
I wonder if it's the same in Arabic? Can a person determine the origins of the speaker, just by the pattern of speech( accents, stresses, innovative ways of pronouncing hard to pronounce vowels)?
On August 3rd, 1977 the 95th U.S. Congress opened hearings into the reported abuses concerning the CIA's TOP SECRET mind control research program code named MK-Ultra. On February 8th, 1988, a top-level MK-Ultra victim, Cathy O'Brien, was covertly rescued from her mind control enslavement by Intelligence insider Mark Phillips. Their seven year pursuit of Justice was stopped FOR REASONS OF NATIONAL SECURITY. TRANCE Formation of America exposes the truth behind this covert government program and its ultimate goal: psychological control of a nation.
