So what would be the purpose of our side doing the be-headings? To justify our stay in Iraq? It seems like that would do the opposite. Just another conspiracy theory.

First off you would have to show that there was any validity to reverse speech. The sounds or "words" heard say more about the person listening than the person that is talking. This does not expose anything other than the desire to hear something that is not really there.

Well, if we are theorizing WHY such tactics would be used by our own side, I can think of a few that are pretty much S.O.P when it comes to War Time Propaganda.
1.) It displays the Enemy (in this case those who are chopping off heads) as monsters rather than human beings who are so evil they need to killed at all costs.
2.) It justifies any of the illegal or horrific things which either our military or our allies military do during the war. Even killing innocent Iraqi's since it makes the killing of the terrorists more important.
3.) It rallies people behind the war by making them angry and wanting justice for the be-headings. War is what the War Pigs want, as well as those who profit off of war like the companies who are making the war machines.
mOjOm is absolutely, dead-on correct. Do not be fooled by this abominable psy/op. This administration will go to any length and any extreme to hold on to their power. It's got their bloody fingerprints all over it.

The truth burns, doesn't it. Turn a blinde eye to the evil of this ONE PARTICULAR subject if you want. It won't change anything.
Who gains from the beheadings? This administration does, period. Besides, true Muslims would not be a party to this madness. Their religion forbids it. Unaware of that little fact? Or are you an agent of disinfo?
