The words "American contractor" are very misleading.
This guy was an adventurer. He decided to go to Iraq without any backing and decided to freelance and look for work.

He was probably picked up and questioned as his situation was so unusual. Nearly every Westerner who is in Iraq is there working under contact and has been flown in with a company. The Lindh case would probably have influenced any decision to detain him.

It is very questionable as to wether Berg was actually looking to leave Iraq. From what I can gather, he was not immediately picked up by extremists and he had plenty of time to vacate the country if he so desired. His previous actions seem to point to his staying in Iraq as part of his adventure though.

As a freelancer, he would not have been entitled to any security from Western forces and therefore would have been at higher risk of being captured by extremists.

With the situation in Iraq being what it is, it has been plainly clear that Iraq is not a tourist spot. This guy thought that it was and he unfortunately paid the price.

The Mercs who were burned & dragged......the buring portion is suspect, because there vehicle was blown up - likely burning their dead bodies. The actions were taken on corpses, not a gruesome death by those action but corpses.
Just as I have spoken to people that think we're in Iraq because Iraq was behind 9/11, I've spoken to those that think the mercs were killed via those actions.


All the photos being distributed on Berg: this was a corn-fed fella, thick of shoulder & waist. If the timeline is to be believed, he seems to be a good 70lbs lighter & atrophy has taken his musculature.

To add:

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?

No way the owner of the extremist website has no idea where the video came from. He/she may not know the killers personally, but maybe a friend, of a friend, of a friend of the killers. Radicals are all linked in one way or another.

Hope we find them.

I hope more information comes out soon.
I'd like to find out why this story has so many holes.

SFGate

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.

My sincere condolences to the family. I can't imagine how much worse it must be when you know anyone with an internet connection can watch. I will not be watching it.




I'm glad it's not just me that seen a few weird points to the story.

Quoted From CNN


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.


These have to be some the most educated terrorists I've seen. I'm used to stuff like "you will burn like the fires of hell". What kinda terrorist uses words like 'degradation'? I wish I had a full list of al Qaeda's terrorist threats compared with other terrorist threats.

...

And why does it always seem like al Qaeda is helping out the current political scene in the U.S.?


"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."



...side note...
I really like the Vote Pop-up thing on the internet "Should the U.S. pull out of Iraq? Yes / No" and then you get a free gift. It's been going about a month...

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, just like nothing fits in the 'official' story of 911.

Nice idea nathraq. I hope we find 'them' too.
Given the 'pass the buck deal', that's happening within the 'coalition of the willing', NOW i would guess very hard.!
P.S. nathraq, i live in Oz so that makes my country a member of the
'coalition of the willing'

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?

Michael Berg, Nick's father, had a little to say about the Bush Administration:


"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 got to talking today with an Iraqi in my German class that's been here about two years about the video. He says that the translation on most of the sites are what the man is saying. But he says that the man speakings voice is not of a native Iraqi, or as he says an native Arabic speaking person at all. He couldnt place the accent at all. At first I wondered how would he know the difference, but he said he's moved around a lot through Greece, Germany, and Jordan (real nice guy). He also pointed out that the man reading almost appeared like he was having a hard time even reading what was written, as if it was badly rehearsed.

I'm wondering if it could be a possible Mossad operation. Them having the whole "By way of deception thou shalt do war." and all.
I'll say it again. It's way too convenient for all of this to come out right around now.

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.

I couldn't agree with you more. Nobody is admitting to detaining him. The hotel doesn't remember him. And the video making the claim that that Al Queda's #2 man did the killing himself? That orange jumpsuit. And why isn't the US taking an active role in investigating this? I also find it interesting that support for war fell below 50% this week. I wonder how much those poll numbers will change now?

This whole thinks stinks.

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)?


Interesting spin.

It would have to be the same. My American comes out in my German all the time. It's nearly impossible to lose the accent. I figure it would have to be the same as Americans can tell the differnece in the accent from someone down south, and someone out west.

I believe they can. There was an interview recently with a member of the Al Aqsa Martyr's Brigade and although he was speaking arabic, there was a familiarity about his voice. He mentioned that he had been educated in the US somewhere in the mid-west. He had maintained that mid-western accent even in his arabic.

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.

I think Miss. Coulter said it best:
(adlib) If the Democrats, anti-war, and anti-bush people are not on Al-Qaeda payrolls, they are getting ripped off.

After reading this entire thread, I was surpirsed that no one mentioned the articles that are also out mentioning that Mr. Berg was advised to leave Iraq?
Beheaded American civilian had been advised to leave Iraq, U.S. officials say.
U.S.: Berg had been advised to leave Iraq

I see no 'foul play' to this, nothing but a tragic occurance that is now being downplayed. I didn't see none of the many within this thread 'downplaying' those pictures and images coming out of Abu Ghriab nor the 'timing' of them being released by the media, despite the reports that indicated that those pictures had been around for almost a year or so! huh?

Sad, very sad.....

It seems to be a non-native speaking Arabic, from what I've been told by Arabs.
It's the same with any nationality: they all speak the same language, but can tell you from where that person comes.

CATHY OBRIEN
Bio & Lecture

Cathy OBrien, born 12/4/57 in Muskegon, Michigan, is a former U.S. Department of Defense MK Ultra CIA mind controlled slave. Cathys pedophile father, Earl OBrien, sold her into MK Ultra as a young child due to his illicit connections into a local Michigan Mafia child pornography ring run and protected by former US President Gerald Ford. Code labeled a "Presidential Model," she experienced from a slaves perspective the application(s) of trauma based mind control, and even worse the purpose! Cathy OBrien existed for thirty years under total mind control in an environment of violent, systematic tortures in conjunction with state-of-the-art technologies.

As a "Presidential Model" mind controlled slave during the Reagan-Bush Administration, Cathy witnessed/experienced the behind-the-scenes inner operational structure of what Adolph Hitler and George Bush termed the New World Order from the political top. Many political reputations and world government secrets were staked on the belief that she could not be deprogrammed and rehabilitated to recall that which she was supposed to forget.

The so-called "Master minds" behind the New World Order operate on the adage that Secret Knowledge Equals Power. Yet these intelligent, inhumane human beings are limited in their thinking by their own immorality and, therefore, failed to consider the strength of the human spirit.

In 1988, Intelligence insider Mark Phillips rescued Cathy OBrien and her then 8-year-old daughter, Kelly, from their mind controlled existence and took them to the serenity of Alaska. There, Mark lovingly began helping Cathy recover her memory and, ultimately her mind, to the point of total rehabilitation.






MARK PHILLIPS
Bio & Lecture


Mark Phillips was born in Nashville, Tennessee May 17, 1943. His formal education was primarily focused on law, psychology and marketing. His first career opportunity was working as a sales engineer for the Ampex Corporation, Redwood City, California. This job required that he be cleared and hold a U.S. Department of Defense TOP SECRET Clearance. After his tenure with Ampex, for almost three decades he was a successful marketing executive working in the fields of commercial aviation, tourism and medical electronics. In 1987, he became the chief executive officer for a U.S./Chinese joint venture capacitor manufacturing company.

Phillips has in recent years become an outspoken advocate for a recovered survivor of the U.S. governments formerly classified TOP SECRET mind control project code named MK Ultra. His vocal accomplishments include presenting mind control information on well over 3000 radio, TV and public presentations. These presentations that continue to this day have assisted and are benefiting law enforcement and mental health professionals alike. This public exposure has thrust him into an international arena of concerned professionals. He is recognized as an entitled authority for his extensive knowledge on the subject of mind control.

Phillips has served as a technical advisor for fiction and non-fiction books, abstracts, news releases, movies and videos. He has been published in his own name and pseudonyms in over a dozen languages around the world. His public revelations unveil this (former) secret knowledge that is being used today in epidemic proportions by religious cults, corrupt factions of government (worldwide) and other criminals for their own ultra secret agendas to create mind controlled sex slaves, assassins and suicide bombers.

In 1995, after Congress postponed their scheduled hearing for the third time, Mark Phillips and recovered & vocal MK-Ultra survivor Cathy OBrien compiled testimony and privately published their Congressional testimony entitled, "TRANCE Formation of America." After 13 consecutive editions in English, T. F. o A. is now published in Italian, German, Turkish, Arabic and Korean languages and is distributed in over 29 countries. This whistle-blowing team is known around the world as the couple that exposed government sponsored mind control as being obviouslyout of control.

In 2004, they released their second book entitled, "ACCESS DENIED for Reasons of National Security," which chronicles how they blew the whistle and survived to inform hundreds of thousands of people of what they Need-to-Know as their best defense against mind control. Mark and Cathy's presentations today are based on their new book, as well as the now cult classic in 29 countries... "TRANCE Formation of America."
