It goes on and on and on and on.
From the farce that was 911 to the capturing and imprisonment (and
later release) of Afghani goat herders in Guantanamo Bay while Bin
Laden and his lieutenants were "escorted" to safety into Pakistan
by their handlers - the CIA.
No ties between Hussein and Bin Laden (mortal enemies).
No weapons of Mass Destruction (We KNOW where they are).
We take down an "evil regime" and then put the same generals
in charge in Fallujah.
We "liberate" the country by rounding up and torturing civilians.
Rumsfeld goes before Congress on Wednesday (5/12) and says the Iraqi women
who were raped and the children who were beaten and the 90% of all detainees
who had to be released AFTER torture these all were "terrorists".
Therefore, the Geneva Convention and rules of war do not apply to raping
and torturing because these "terrorists" do not belong to an
Everything was going South deservedly so and the Bush Administration
Enter poor Nick Berg.
Nick Berg was a telecommunications contractor who went into Iraq to "help".
But he and his family were not unknown to US authorities.
On March 7, 2004, an 'enemies' list of anti-war groups and individuals
was posted on the Free Republic.
Among those listed was this entry: "Michael S. Berg, Teacher, Prometheus
Methods Tower Service, Inc." That's Nick Berg's father, Michael who
acts as business manager for his son in their family radio communications
firm, Prometheus Methods Tower Service.
Just days after "Michael Berg" and "Prometheus Methods Tower
Service" had come up on that Iraq war 'enemies' list, his son Nick
Berg returned to Iraq under the business name of Prometheus Methods Tower
Nick was detained, first by Iraqi police, then for 13 days by the United
States military in Iraq. He was in US custody and admittedly questioned
by the FBI 3 separate times. They would not release him nor press
charges nor let him speak to an attorney.
He was a "terrorist sympathizer" and detained in a US orange
jumpsuit (like those in Guantanamo) and put in a cell with Syrians and
- Yet they now claim Nick Berg was NEVER in US custody.
To back its claims that Berg was in U.S. custody, the family gave The Associated
Press copies of e-mails from Beth A. Payne, the U.S. consular officer in
"I have confirmed that your son, Nick, is being detained by the U.S.
military in Mosul. He is safe. He was picked up approximately one week
ago. We will try to obtain additional information regarding his detention
and a contact person you can communicate with directly,'' Payne wrote to
Berg's father, Michael, on April 1. Payne repeated that Berg was "being
detained by the U.S. military'' in an e-mail the same day to Berg's mother,
Frustrated by their inability to find out about their son's whereabouts,
The Berg's filed a lawsuit in federal court in Philadelphia on April 5
asserting that their son was being held by the American military in violation
of his civil rights.
"His parents contacted our office, the F.B.I., the State Department,"
said Representative Jim Gerlach, a Republican from Upper Uwchlan Township
Representative Gerlach met with the Berg family on Tuesday. "They
got very insufficient information,'' he said. "They felt that they
were not getting full answers."
Nick Berg's father, Michael Berg was publicly furious, "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."
The Berg's filed a lawsuit in federal court in Philadelphia on April 5.
A day later, Nick Berg was released. He contacted his parents and told
them that he was coming home. The following day he checked out of his hotel
in Baghdad, and disappeared.
At the height of the US torture scandal, Nick Berg's body was "discovered"
on Saturday May 8, having reportedly been decapitated the same day by muslim
radicals specifically Al Queda.
- And, almost miraculously, a video appears worldwide showing
"Al Queda" in possession of Mr. Berg (somehow still wearing his
orange jumpsuit) at which time he is supposedly beheaded by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi
whom Americans claim is Al Queda's lead man in Iraq. Not only does
Al Queda record the video, but Zarqawi's name and "signature"
appear on it.
Convenient? Oh, and how.
Yet there are many problems with this explanation.
Long ago, when trying to tie Al Queda with Iraq, Colin Powell claimed that
Zarqawi was fitted with a prosthetic leg in a Baghdad hospital (which,
at the time, was touted as being a major indication of a connection between
al-Qaeda and Saddam Hussein).
Yet the killer in the video walks and moves around with both legs just
fine. Zarqawi could not be the killer. So why would all the killers wear
hoods to hide their identity, and then sign the video with their own name
and call themselves Al Queda?
It never happened. As reported both by the London Telegraph and CNN (CNN
O'BRIEN: Interesting. All right, now one final thought here. You did a
very careful translation of your own, of the statement. And in it, you
see no reference to al Qaeda. And yet the official U.S. government translation
does. Explain how that happened.
- NASR: Oh, I find it very interesting, because out of
the blue, there is a mention of al Qaeda on the U.S. government translation.
It says: "Does al Qaeda need any further excuses?" Any speaker
of the Arabic language is going to notice a difference between the word
al Qaeda, which means "the base," and al qaed, which means "the
one sitting, doing nothing."
- My translation says: "Is there any excuse for the
one who sits down and does nothing?" Basically they're telling people,
you have no excuse for not doing anything, for not acting and defending
Islam and so forth. Whereas the U.S. government translation adds al Qaeda
to the statement, which is not on the statement.
- But it gets much, much worse.
The Berg video is a montage of two separate videos taken from two cameras.
This is apparent from the time in the lower right-hand corner, which changes
as the angle of the shot changes.
- Notice on the right that Berg's head has been cut off
at 13:47:49 (1:47) yet on the picture on the left, at 2:44
nearly an hour later he is sitting with his head intact!
In the video shown all over the world, the man in the middle (wearing all
black) is the one who beheads Mr. Berg, but immediately when the head is
held up, suddenly it changes to the man in the white mask.
Additionally, the audio is 7 seconds off from the video.
So what, you say?
So let's see, an American who is considered an enemy of the US war suddenly
is taken prisoner in Iraq, which the US denies, until his family produces
e-mails from the US office in Iraq and sues and then he is miraculously
released though supposedly he wasn't in custody. Can
the government ever tell the truth?
Then he disappears and resurfaces only as the US is in dire need
of an incident to try to put to rest the coverage of their torture in Iraq.
Suddenly, a US enemy-of-the-state ends up in Al Queda's hands and
not just their hands but the leaderships who signs a video
saying he killed him though the guy who supposedly kills him has
a prosthetic leg and the guy in the video clearly doesn't.
Then it's released all over the world that Al Queda did not claim to do
this and that the US intentionally doctored the transcripts.
Why would a guy in US custody for weeks, after being released for a day
and getting ready to go home, not take off the damned orange prison jumpsuit?
Why do the hooded "Al Queda" guys appear so white? Muslims say
the accents are not middle eastern at all.
Does this guy look like an Arab?
Go back up and look at the "group of 5" arab Terrorists. Does
their look and body language and white
- Skin say arab or US military dressed in terrorist garb?
The only plausible alternative is a covert, black operation orchestrated
as part of the seedier arm of US foreign policy --which generally only
come to light when candid
- photographs, for example, reach the public domain.
NBC news (Andrea Mitchell) reported on May 6 that special operations forces,
including both Delta Force and Navy SEALs, were also involved in abusing
prisoners in Iraq.
- In order to cover themselves, the government has released
information that Nick Berg was investigated during the 09/11 investigation
for having ties to Zacharias Moussaoui. Supposedly, Moussaoui was using
Berg's email address. Is it possible Nick is a member of the new formed
Jewish Al Qaida?
The lies will keep coming from this administration until the people put
a stop to it.
