Here is a quote from Cutwolf which I personally agree with. It's on the topic of showing the footage of the beheading in a school.


Funny how "war is good and war is necessary and we should have gone to Iraq" yet as soon as someone shows the true side of war to the public there is outrage. The purpose of school is to educate. By showing a video that shows the true face of war you are educating the high schoolers (our future) on what war really is.

They could have went about it without a political agenda and made it optional viewing, but showing the video is completely acceptable. By sheltering our youth from the truths of war, war will become depersonalized to them and they won't be able to make the proper decisions in the future regarding war. The only way to make an educated decision on war is to know what war really is.

I commend the teachers showing the video but not how they went about it.

It's simply amazing that of the five people on the tape, they could identify one of them. Then they capture the other 4, while the one they could identify gets away. I think these are just scapegoats.

From the 5/18 Daily Coalition Provisional Briefing


www.defenselink.mil...
In the northern area of operations, coalition forces conducted five offensive operations in western Mosul, targeting anti-coalition cell leaders. Four individuals were detained for interrogation along with several weapons.

Stephanie Halasz, CNN. One question regarding Nicholas Berg. We're hearing that there are reports that four arrests were made regarding the killing of Berg. Can you tell us anything about that?

GEN. KIMMITT: We have no information on the coalition that any arrests were made today.


Please visit the link provided for the complete story.


I believe this is the reason why this story suddenly disappeared.

Back in the NEWS:

FOX Local-WSVN Channel 7
this story is being reported again, saying that 4 men arrested for Berg's murder were Baath party members loyal to Saddam or paramilitaries from Saddam's former regime. The station is saying that men were arrested since last week.

what ever happened to Al-Zarqawi?
of course the one legged guy gets away.

More on the release:

Boston Herald
BAGHDAD, Iraq - Coalition forces detained four suspects in the Nicholas Berg killing, and two were later released, a U.S. military spokesman said Friday.

The suspects were detained during a raid Wednesday in Baghdad, Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt said at a news conference.

``Coalition forces conducted a raid to capture four individuals suspected of involvement in the Nicholas Berg assassination,'' Kimmitt said. ``Four persons were detained and questioned. Two personnel were released and the other two are still being questioned.

``We may find out that they have no association with the murder but we will continue to question them for some period of time until we are convinced they are innocent,'' Kimmitt said.

He said he did not know the suspects' prior affiliations. The intelligence that led to their arrests came from Iraqi tips, and coalition forces detained the suspects, he said.

Get a load of this, from the MSNBC article:


"...the Iraqi official said, adding that the informant who tipped off authorities was killed by unidentified gunmen the day after the arrests."


www.msnbc.msn.com...

Why doesn't absolutely everything about this stink?
