Originally posted by segoviusNew developments: it seems Berg was in possession of a Qu'ran and anti-Semitic book and was viewed with a great deal of suspicion by US soldiers as a 'terrorist wannabee'.
He was detained and interviewed by US military who viewed him with suspicion. He was wearing the Abu Ghraib jumpsuit at the time of his death.
He carried a Qu'ran and book called 'the Jewish problem'.
Links have emerged with alleged 911 terrorist Zacharias Massoui.
The whole video story has more holes in it then a Swiss cheese.
Berg winds up dead - allegedly by Islamic fundamentalists who behead him (something forbidden to inflict on prisoners by the Qu'ran) whilst wearing gold rings (something forbidden by the Qu'ran) and all under the supervision of a Jordanian widely believed to be dead who has miraculously resurrected himself with a new leg to replace the one that got blown off, a new accent to replace his native Jordanian and a new found facility in Russian to compensate for his mysteriously degraded native Arabic.
Nothing to see here folks - move on and leave this one to the tin-hat brigade.....
i don't see it, sorry.
I haven't actually seen any evidence he was in Abu Ghraib. They put him in the jump suit to 'send a message', reminding us of Guantanamo. I haven't seen any good evidence about this Russian thing, either, and I don't believe that the people who 'faked' this would be so stupid as leave Russian on the audio if it were a set up.
The people who did this had every reason to kill the guy. As far as they were concerned, anyway.
I don't know about the Jordanian accent and the leg. A more likely explanation is that someone's standing in for the Jordanian, who is an iconic figure I understand, for the sake of propaganda.
The gold rings, that's no problem at all. I remember reading an article about Islamists infiltrating mosques in London in which an Imam said 'it's the ones without the beards who are the most dangerous.' -These people are bad, damaged people first, Muslims second. That's not a joke or a fudge, it's the truth. They're terrorists, proper terrorists, and terrorists do what the fuck they like. If you can kill innocents contrary to your sacred texts you can wear gold rings without a problem. You even get drunk like Mohammed Atta (although as far as I can tell that's all hearsay too.)
The audio quality's bad, I understand. It's not a surprise that a translator misheard.
It just seems so much more likely to me that the poor guy, who may have been trying to be an insurgent, I don't know, just got murdered by murdering bastards angry with the US and Israel.
