Wie vermoordde Berg?
by Guido Saturday, May. 15, 2004 at 5:08 PM

Berg is de naam van de man die op een video onthoofd wordt, zogenaamd door de rechterhand van Bin Laden, Zaraqawi. Maar is dit wel zo?

Wie er van de moord profiteert is de extreemrechtse bende rond Bush.

"President George Bush is ver in de gevarenzone beland door de foto's uit Abu Ghraib. Dat geldt ook voor de steun van de Amerikanen voor de strijd in Irak. Met die andere beelden, van Nick Bergs onthoofding, in de hand, zet rechts een felle tegenaanval in: Amerika hoeft geen excuses aan te bieden. ,,We willen wraak. Een hoofd voor een hoofd.'' DS

Over de gemartelde gevangen werder nadien veel minder gesproken, het collectieve denken werd weer eens hevig door mekaar geschud.

Informatie omtrent Berg:

1. Zijn vader staat op een hit-lijst van extreem rechts in Amerika, dit omdat hij deelnam aan anti-oorlogsbetogingen.

2. Berg heeft eens een "terrorist" geholpen:

"Michael Berg, father of 26-year-old Nicholas Berg, told CNN at his home in West Chester, Pennsylvania, that his son went to Oklahoma University several years ago and allowed people later identified by US authorities as terrorists to use his computer."Yahoo

De Amerikaanse minister van justitie verklaarde dat:

"Attorney General John Ashcroft said Friday that U.S. authorities investigated Nicholas Berg for a possible connection to terrorists but determined there was no link."bron

3. Waarom één van de zogezegde "moslimterroristen" een gouden ring draagt, doet vele mensen twijfelen of het wel echt moslims waren, juwelen dragen is enkel voorbehouden aan vrouwen.

4. In een artikel op Al Jazeera worden er ook vragen gesteld over de video:

"Video oddities

There are plenty of questions raised concerning the video too. The body is completely motionless even as the knife is brought to bear – not so much as an instinctive wriggle.

More graphically, some claim that cutting the throat's artery would cause a significant amount of blood to gush out. But little emerges and when the head was raised – not a drop of blood is seen to fall."

Al Jazeera

Het volgende komt ook uit dat artikel:

"However, the circumstances of the video release are also strange. A Reuters journalist in Dubai first named the Muntada al-Ansar al-Islami website as the source for the video – at

Although the site has now been shut down, looked at the site within 90 minutes of the story breaking – and could find no such video footage. But Fox News, CNN and the BBC were all able to download the footage from the Arabic-only website and report the story within the hour."

Over de site waar de video stond, wat info:

Internet firm shuts down website showing beheading

Wat vaststaat is dat er iemand vermoord werd, wie het was, men tast in het duister.

Of is het blijkbaar al genoeg of vijf gemaskerde mannen op te voeren en te zeggen dat ze moslim zijn opdat iedereen het gelooft?

Was Berg's Beheading a Case of Death Squad and Mistaken Identity?
by Breaking News from Albany IMC(repost by Guido Monday, May. 17, 2004 at 9:57 AM

"Michael Berg, recently murdered on video in Iraq, may have been a victim of mistaken identity. His father public endorsed the March 20 rally against the invasion. His name quickly appeared on a right-wing website as an enenmy of the people. Shortly after his name was published, he was held by either the Iraqi police or the US military for 13 days. THe US claims an e-mail the government sent to the Berg family admitted he was in US custody was false; Iraqi police deny however that they were the ones holding Berg. Upon his release after a lawsuit was filed by his parents in US courts, was he picked up and killed by a death squad? Berg's Father and Firm Were On A Right-Wing 'Enemies' List"

"In today's Seattle Post-Intelligencer (Seattle P-I), May 13, 2004, A4, appeared an AP article by Robert H. Reid entitled:

"Questions over beheading victim's travel in Iraq."

That article, which is not online, says:

"Berg first worked in Iraq in December and January and returned in March. He was inspecting communications facilities, some of which were destroyed in the war or by looters. During his time in Iraq, he worked on a tower in Abu Ghraib, site of the prison where U.S. soldiers abused Iraqi inmates."

Toch 1 kleine correctie: het dragen van gouden juwelen is niet toegestaan voor mannen, zilvere en andere juwelen daar is niets op tegen.
Voor de rest: zeer leerrijk

Berg Decapitation Video was filmed inside the Abu Ghraib Prison
by (posted by G) Tuesday, May. 18, 2004 at 12:52 PM

"There is now ample evidence that the video showing the decapitation of 26 year old Nicholas Berg of Philadelphia by purported Al Qaeda members is a complete fraud. The real Nick Berg may or may not be dead, but the heavily edited video is nothing but a fake. This is the conclusion of La Voz de Aztlan after a frame by frame analysis and the conclusion of hundreds of film, medical and other experts world wide who downloaded, viewed and analyzed the video as well. Literally thousands of persons world wide requested the video, which is rapidly disappearing from the Internet, after our news service published "Nick Berg decapitation video declared a fraud by medical doctor" on Wednesday May 12 and which was linked by other independent news services on the World Wide Web."

Berg beheading: No way, say medical experts
by Ritt Goldstein (posted by G) Saturday, May. 22, 2004 at 3:06 PM

"...according to what both a leading surgical authority and a noted forensic death expert separately told Asia Times Online, the video depicting the decapitation appears to have been staged.

"I certainly would need to be convinced it [the decapitation video] was authentic," Dr John Simpson, executive director for surgical affairs at the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, said from New Zealand. Echoing Dr Simpson's criticism, when this journalist asked forensic death expert Jon Nordby, PhD and fellow of the American Board of Medicolegal Death Investigators, whether he believed the Berg decapitation video had been "staged", Nordby replied: "Yes, I think that's the best explanation of it."

""The way that they pulled him over, they could have used a dummy at that point," reflected Simpson regarding what the video portrayed. "

S.F. Man Says Beheading Video Is a Hoax
by a Saturday, Aug. 07, 2004 at 11:55 PM

"Shrugging and taking a drink from a diet soda, Vanderford said he originally made the video as a way to draw attention to his campaign for a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. He filmed the footage at a friend's house, using fake blood.

When his political aspirations waned, he decided to distribute the footage on Kazaa, which is used to trade millions of audio, video and software files daily, "to just make a statement on these type of videos and how easily they can be faked."
