- Well, what do you know? Another terrorist cell playing
right into the hands of the neocons, right at the most apropo moment.
- I have just a few questions: How would Nick Berg have
gotten into Iraq in the first place? By which flight did he arrive? Certainly
as we control all flights in and out of the country now, somebody must
have approved it, and must have asked questions about Nick Berg's security
- Was Nick Berg really just an "independent contractor"
who ventured to Iraq on a whim? And while we're at it, how many other "independent
contractors" are there in Iraq now?
- How many other independent contractors are over there
competing against the good ole boys for DOD contract work?
- So, we are supposed to believe that the pentagon is not
concerned about checking into and tracking independent contractors? This
whole thing smells like it was orchestrated for the benefit of the usual

- Berg was a prisoner of the U.S. military in Iraq.
- West Chester contractor missing in Iraq - May 08, 2004,
- Nick Berg was on his way out of Iraq. He had been released
from the prison where he had been held for 13 days by Iraqi police for
reasons he said he did not know. Nick Berg, 26, owns a business called
Prometheus Methods Tower Service Inc.
- He first went to Iraq on Dec. 21. He stayed until Feb.
1, making contact with a company that indicated there would likely be work
for him later. But he returned on March 14 and there was no work, so he
began traveling. He usually called home once a day and e-mailed several
times; Michael Berg is his business manager, and they needed to stay in
- When FBI agents arrived at the Berg's West Chester home
on March 31, they were relieved to know their son was alive, but in jail.
The agents questioned them about various details that only they and their
son would know about.
- Jerri Williams, spokeswoman for the Philadelphia FBI
office, said the agency was "asked to interview the parents regarding
Mr. Berg's purpose in Iraq." On April 5, the Bergs filed suit in federal
court in Philadelphia, contending that their son was being held illegally
by the U.S. military in Iraq.
- The next day, April 6, Nick Berg was released. Nick Berg
said he would come home through Jordan, Turkey or Kuwait. The Bergs have
hounded the State Department, the FBI and the International Committee of
the Red Cross, seeking information. Michael Berg said the State Department
sent an official to Nick Berg's hotel, where an employee told the official
they had not heard of him.
- Question: In the video where Nick Berg is beheaded, why
is he wearing an orange jumpsuit, the same as US prisoners wear?
