The Nick Berg Video

It appears that the Nick Berg video is making its way across the internet, and the heavily interlinked nature of the blogosphere is driving google traffic the blogosphere's way.

WARIRA771LR.jpgOne of the things few people are commenting on is how the unsurpassed level of media technology is affecting warfare. We saw live battles at all times of day and night during the initial heavy-combat phase of the war. My most vivid memory of that phase was Bob Arnot's live narration of a firefight in which he pulled a civilian family into a foxhole.

What happens when media footage that was once only available to elites, military personnel, and politicians becomes widely available to the everyday joe at the click of a mouse? Does it affect the likeliness of war or peace?

I don't know the answer to that, but I can't see it being a negative. People tend to fight when they see the world as a fixed sum-game. People tend to cooperate when they see the mutual benefits of cooperation. Perhaps the small positive from the disguisting images of Abu Gharib and the proliferation of the Nick Berg video on the internet is that the world sees the awesome gruesomeness of war, and perhaps marginally shows it the benefits of cooperation and peace.

Update: We do not have the video. You can try some of the links above .

I felt sick after watching the video. It was of poor quality but it was still disgusting. That is no way to die. I pray that those men are found and justice is served. What the hell! I can't believe there are people like that. What a horrible way to die. My condolences are sent to nick's family.

What comes around goes

What comes around goes around. They haven't seen the worst of us yet! Paybacks are hell.
Personally though,I think the video is fake. There would have been alot more blood had Nick been alive when this happenned to him.

We in israel have These

We in israel have These things happening everyday.... But nothing as horriffing as this....for An Innocent person to be Beheaded infront of an camera. These are Animals that need to be Destroyed.

i hav seen the video,i hav

i hav seen the video,i hav never cried for someone i have never met before and watching it really upset me.they didnt just behead him,they were hacking away at it for a good few minuts,and i would say that he was alive pretty much alive through the most of it,for those of you who want to see it i wouldnt if i were you,it is deeply disturbing and i think its better left to the imagination,dont put yourself through the horror of watching it.

would someone please e-mail

would someone please e-mail me the video of Nick Berg. I have been to many sites and still have not come across the video. Thank you

For one second stop thinking

For one second stop thinking about how horrible what happened was and focus on the facts. Take a look at the link and then watch the video again.

It is with deepest grief

It is with deepest grief that we reflect on the great loss of Nick Berg. A candle blown out still leaves a lovely fragrance in the air. But now he is gone and has stepped into eternity. Man's inhumanity to man knows no boundaries. This barbaric atrocity is one of unspeakable cruelty. In Jeremiah 17:9 we are told, "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it." Ecclesiastes 7:20 says "For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not." Some of us manifest our sinful state in a fashion far kinder than those of the terrorists who killed Nick but, nevertheless, we are all destined for the same fate (death)unless we (a)admit we are a sinner; (b) believe on the Lord Jesus Christ; and (c) confess him as Lord and Savior. Romans 10:9-10: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
It is with great tenderness of heart and a grieving in the core of my being that I must share the following scripture in earnest hope that you will not dismiss it. Rather, I pray that you will have a sense of urgency after reading it as none of us know when we, like Nick, shall take our last breath and leave earth's stage: Matthew 10:28: And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
As Jesus hung on a cruel cross and died a horrible death much like that of Nick Berg, he said "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do."
We must forgive, and yes, it is a very hard thing to do. It is something we choose to do by obedient faith rather than feelings. Listen to the words of our Lord Jesus in Matthew 6:14: For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Why do these stupid liberals

Why do these stupid liberals always blame Bush for every thing... It's amazing how they all came out of the wood work AFTER Clinton was gone. Where were they during all his scandals. And all these people saying it was worse than watergate!!!How stupid can you be? Then there is John Kerry. Mr. I dont know where I stand, he said there were weapons but what does he say now? There aren't!! He says our troops are dying for nothing!! They are ging freedom

I saw the video and words

I saw the video and words can't tell about the video. U HAVE TO SEE IT YOURSELF. People also think that the guy in the video isn't Nick Berg because the photo of nick that was took at home doesn't look like him in the video



When the fuck are you morons going to wake up, turn off the government propaganda machine in your living rooms and begin to start doing some real research and reading for yourselves? The real travesty of the nick berg video and all the anomalies surrounding it is that it is so completely obvious that is psyop perpetrated by the military industrial complex that it's done right in your face as if to say " yeah, we can do this and we can do it to you too if we want." The second travesty is all the sheep who never bother to put two and two together so see what is so obvious to those of us who can think for ourselves.

One would have to be totally blind to ignore the incredible stench of P2OG Pentagon theater in the case of Nick Berg. We've got Nick Berg in US custody for 13 days, a diplomat's email confirms this, the FBI admits it and the Iraqi puppet government confirms it.

Meanwhile the Defense Department was desperately trying to deny it. Now they have to admit that Berg was indeed in their custody. Then, Berg gets released and within days is in al-CIAeda hands

Many doctors have looked at the video and it is questionable. when you cut someone's head off blood can spray up to 10 feet.

Now we learn that he was under investigation by the FBI right after 9/11 for having the same password as one of the al-CIAeda decoys.

On top of it all, we now learn that he had done work at the infamous Abu Ghraib prison.

Don't forget who stands to gain from all of this. Right when Bush's bacon needs to be pulled out of the fire this video magically pops up -- Al-CIAeda helping, as usual.

Remember Colin Powell testifying before Congress, saying that Saddam was working with Bin Laden, then, magically, that day, a new Arab-CIAeda tape gets released where Bin Laden agrees and says he is working with Saddam?

This is the same military theater company that plants fake letters from troops in papers and consults Jerry Bruckheimer, the famous director on how to stage the rescue of Jessica Lynch (a rescue story that she called a fable).

Remember two years ago the fat Bin Laden in the blurry video telling us that the carried out 9/11? The government later admitted that it was fake, but wouldn't say who created it.

And, of course, there's more. The supposed Al-CIAeda leader in Iraq, al-Zarqawi, who they say cut Berg's head off was reported in the March 4, 2004 MSNBC to be killed in a bombing raid in Mosul in Northern Iraq.

There are about twenty other fishy points. When added all together it spells Psychological Warfare Operation.

Western Voice Heard On Nick Berg Videotape
by Fintan Dunne, Editor
13th May, 2004 9pmET EXCLUSIVE

Western Voice--Berg Tape

A faint Western voice can be heard twice in the final seconds of the infamous videotape of the beheading of Nick Berg. The voice may be saying "Thy Will Be Done."

The sound can be heard in all copies of the tape which has examined. We have amplified the revevant section of the tape and you can listen at the link above.

Amazing, chairs at Abu Abu Ghraib prison and the 'stage' of Nick Berg's execution are exactly the same. Berg worked at the Abu Ghraib shortly before his 'disappearance'.

MSNBC: During his time in Iraq, he struggled with the Arabic language and worked at night on a tower in Abu Ghraib, a site of repeated attacks on U.S. convoys and the location of the notorious prison where U.S. soldiers abused Iraqi inmates.

Another 'Coincidence': Chairs at Abu Ghraib Prison and 'Stage' of Berg's Execution Exactly the Same

15 Anomalies Surrounding Death Of Nick Berg

UPDATE 12:45PM Central: This just in -- U.S. spokesman says decapitated American was never held by U.S. forces

With several news outlets reporting that Berg's family is angry from the US government over their son's violent death and revelations that "Berg was detained by Iraqi police at a checkpoint in Mosul on March 24. He was turned over to U.S. officials and detained for 13 days" (in other words, he was detained by the US military just prior to his death) -- (AP 5/11/04) we have to question what really happened and who was really behind Berg's horrific murder.

We have received several emails from listeners questioning what really happened including this one:

me and a friend were discussing recent news events and trying to piece together the information presented to us, thought you might want to look into this further, they said in the news that nicholas berg was killed 2 weeks ago (i think), however in the video the culprits who killed him said they were "avenging iraqi prisoner abuse" but those photos weren't released until last week, so my question is how is that even a possible motive if he was killed prior to the abuse photos being released?? maybe i am misinformed but thought id ask the question to someone who would look into it

And this one:

Hey Alex, I know people like me who have learned not to trust our government tend to see a conspiracy under every rock. With that said... The picture the media is now showing of the guy the terrorist beheaded as revenge for what went on in the Iraqi prisons looks odd to me. If you look at the men dressed in black, they all seem well fed. Actually most look fat. That bothers me, because these guys are fighting a war and eating on the run. They are constantly on the move and should be either very fit and trim or scrawny and malnourished because of the same reasons. One thing they should not be is fat like couch potatoes. If you look at all of the photos of the prisoners who were naked who supposedly were just plucked of the street, most of them are thin. Just an observation Alex

And this one:

1) extremely convenient "wag the dog" timing at the height of furor
regarding U.S. torture of Iraqis

2) CNN poll question: "Is the Berg killing a reason for withholding any
remaining Iraq prisoner abuse pictures?" Bush has been reported to be
struggling with question of whether Pentagon should release additional
torture photos. Given that the alleged decapitation of Berg was allegedly
prompted by the first wave of torture photos, Bush could now cite "national
security" issues for witholding additional materials.

3) Berg's last known whereabouts was in U.S. custody.

4) Berg shown in video wearing orange jumpsuit known to be of U.S. issue
(compare with pictures at Guantanamo).

5) Berg mysteriously captured by Al-Quaeda (still wearing jumpsuit). Either
he escaped from U.S. captors or U.S. let him out -- with orange suit and
all -- to be immediately apprehended by Al-Quaeda (before he had a chance to

6) Tape obviously spliced together and heavily edited. Goes from a) Berg
sitting in chair talking about family, to b) Berg sitting on floor with
hooded "militants" behind, to c) blurry camera movement, to d) almost
motionless Berg on floor as head cut off.

7) Audio clearly dubbed in.

8) "Arab" reader flips through pages of "statement" and keeps ending up on
the same page. Perhaps doesn't even known enough Arabic to recognize what
page he's on?

9) "Arabs" have lily-white hands and (other exposed) skin.

10) "Arabs" have Western-style body posture and mannerisms.

11) When Berg decapitated, there was almost no blood. If Berg were still
alive at this point, with the cut starting at front of throat, blood would
have been spraying everywhere. Berg's severed head, the floor, Berg's
clothes, and even the hand of the "Arab" who decapitated Berg had no visible
blood on it.

12) Berg's body didn't move while on the ground. Although held down, Berg
would have tried to instinctively wiggle and writhe away from captor's grip.

13) Camera angle made it impossible to see if Berg's eyes were even open.

14) Alleged "scream" from Berg sounded to be that of a woman and was clearly
dubbed in.

15) Berg goes to great trouble to identify himself, providing information
about his family. Why? To elicit greater sympathy? Or to provide a
positive ID. FBI visited Berg family in an attempt to "verify his
identity". Guy in video looks very little like Berg photos provided by

I believe that Berg (or this lookalike character) was first killed (perhaps
by lethal injection, poisoning, etc.), then decapitated after dead (explains
lack of blood spraying everywhere). Berg was killed by Al-Quaeda (known to
be a CIA - Mossad joint venture). Berg video released at height of furor
over U.S. torture of Iraqis and just before Bush was to decide whether to
release additional torture videos. Now torture videos will be witheld from
public for reasons of national security. Now "patriots" everywhere will
laud the virtues of U.S. torture of "enemies". Sensitivity level of public
gets heightened in terms of what's acceptable treatment of prisoners.
Juxtaposed with decapitation, piling naked men into pyramid is nothing.
Such treatment will be considered more and more acceptable even in domestic
situations. George W. Bush sleeps well tonight while Berg family lives in
torture. Serves Berg's father right for opposing Bush and the war of
aggression against Iraq.

Arab linguists have said the man posing as the Jordanian Zaraqawi did not speak with a Jordanian dialect. Others have suggested the man reading the written statement may not have been a native speaker of Arabic.

Zaraqawi was missing one leg and had been outfitted with an artificial leg that did not fit or function properly. He was unable to walk or stand normally with his ill-fitting limb. No man in the group showed evidence of such an infirmity.

Numerous indigenous sources have said Zaraqawi was killed by a US helicopter attack months ago when he was unable to move quickly enough to escape the targeted house. While others managed to exit the house in time to survive, he died in the collapsed building.

As any surgeon will testify, the alleged beheading was a fake. A beheading would result in a tremendous amount of spurting blood. There would have been blood everywhere had an actual beheading taken place. When the executioner holds up Berg's head immediately following what is represented as an actual decapitation of a living person, there is no significant blood flow from the neck or blood splatters showing anywhere on the executioner. Furthermore, the cut was simply too neat to have been done crudely and with such amazing speed by a man wielding a knife. Anybody who has ever carved a turkey knows there is something wrong with the supposed beheading. The suspended head looks more like Berg had been neatly beheaded by a guillotine.

The orange jumpsuit was standard US military issue to men in custody. It is unlikely Berg would have continuing wearing a US custodial uniform if he had been released by the military as they claim. The fact he was still wearing the suit is both anomalous and suggestive. One is forced to speculate as to whether there was an immediate transfer of Berg from the US military to unknown persons, thusly preventing Berg from discarding his US prison garb.

Several of the men in the film were fat by Iraqi standards. If they were Feyadeen or mujahadeen, they probably have been living underground since the first days of the occupation. Tens of thousands of Iraqis have been shown on news stories as they have marched and demonstrated. One would be hard pressed to point out a single fat man among these thousands.

Some men had what can only be described as pasty-white hands. Once again, one would be hard pressed to find Arab men with pasty-white hands.

The lack of spurting blood suggests Berg was already dead at the time of the alleged decapitation. It is possible Berg's dead body was displayed with his head already partially or totally severed. In any case, he almost certainly was killed before the staged beheading. If so, it suggests the captors had no stomach for an actual beheading of a living person, and they opted to fulfill their assignment quietly and with the least amount of gore.

The scream that is heard has been interpreted as a woman's scream by many viewers. Videotape cognoscenti have further said the scream was amateurishly added to the tape.

The U.S. government translation of one statement made on the film is: "Does al Qaeda need any further excuses?" This is a falsification. The actual statement urged fellow insurgents to get off their hind ends and do something. One assumes the translator being used by the US military is a native speaker of Arabic, so this cannot be explained as an innocent flub. This suggests the US government wanted to inject an alleged al- Qaeda group into the murder of Nick Berg.

Iraqis who have seen the videotape on Arabic news broadcasts are universally saying the men in the film are not Iraqis. Are they saying this partly because the speaker does not employ an Iraqi dialect? Where does their certainty come from?

Firearms experts have stated the AK-47 carried by one man was a "Gilal." This actually is an Israeli-made weapon that improves on the famous AK- 47. Feyadeen and other insurgents almost universally use AK-47s.

The man in the videotape who is purported to be Zarqawi is wearing a gold ring. This is absolutely proscribed by Islamic law.

The US military has stated that Berg was never in US custody and that he had been in custody of the Iraqi police. The Iraqi police adamantly deny he was ever in their custody. On April 1, an e-mail from Beth A. Payne, the U.S. consular officer in Iraq, was sent to the family of Nick Berg. It stated that Ms. Payne had located Nick, and he was currently in custody of the US military. We have to conclude that either the email was bogus or the US military has been lying.

The chair that Berg was seated in during the filming was a standard issue military chair of the exact same kind as seen in a color photo taken at the Abu Ghraib Prison. The chances a terrorist cell would be using this same chair are minimal at best.

If all people understand

If all people understand that Nick Berg study Islam! He might be suicidal to make his government look bad! Think of that?

I just finshed watching the

I just finshed watching the video and it is clearly a fraud. There is a delay of over nine hours at one point (timestamp) and Nick doesn't even move for almost three minutes, leading me to believe he is dead. When they finally do wrap up their speech the screams are off with the video and there is *no* blood, making me believe he was already dead. Also, the executors appear to be white and do not stand with an Arabic posture. (The readers Arabic is poor as well.)

For anyone who hasn't seen the video and would like to see it themselves here is a link:

Nick you and your family are

Nick you and your family are in all of our thoughts and prayers.



It's very tragic what

It's very tragic what happend to him. I've not yet seen the video, but I'm outraged that this happend. When we capture the bastards that did this to him, I hope we can send those arabs around the country where we tie them out in public to ppl. can come around and hit them with 2 by 4's.

Okay everybody, I have read

Okay everybody, I have read all of your comments some good, some legitimate, and some just obviously stupid and ignorant. First of all, anyone who still uses the word "nigger" to degrade people aren't even intelligent enough to spell the word hello. So those folks get ignored automatically. Also, anyone who thinks they are American because they are white, and their parents were born here, and their grandparents were born here, might just want to take a history lesson...... everybody in America is from somewhere else. Unless you are 100% Native American, any person living in the U.S. who is an American citizen has just as much right to call themselves an American as anybody else. Lets see, where did White people come from first.... oh yeah, EUROPE......, WHICH MEANS THAT EVERY SINGLE SOLITARY WHITE PERSON LIVING IN AMERICA, IS NOT COMPLETELY AMERICAN...... BUT A MIXTURE OF EUROPEAN AND AMERICAN. So all of you ignorant people who say that anyone who is not white should go back to their country, you should also know that also applies to you..... unless your ancestors were born on Mars or Pluto.... which is always possible considering the large amount of ignorant people that we have in this country.

Why can't we as a society just accept people for who they are.... not what they look like? Oh yeah, I forgot, because our country was founded on unequal treatment, slavery, racism, sexism, ageism, and every other "ism" that one can think of. But at the same time, those same ignorant people always say that Americans have never done anything like that before...... did we already forget about Native Americans being scalped, Blacks being hanged, shot, butchered, Mexicans being killed for being Mexican, Japanese put into interment camps.... oh yeah, but I forgot that is not happening now in IRAQ right?.... because Americans would not do that.


HEY! Some people have typed

HEY! Some people have typed some of the most ignorant crap. Look folks, this is not a Bush issue. The beheading of Nick Berg is horrible. Sure he is screaming, you would too, I'm sure. You know what I'm talking about if you have seen it. These people are animals. It has nothing to do with George Bush. These people have hated Americans for years, up until now they have not had the opportunity to walk out on the street and kill an American. So it's not that I'm a Bush supporter, I support America. How about trying to fight against the people who have hated America for years, instead of someone in your own backyard. Do you really think Bush wanted this to take place? Grow up and be for real. Search yourself, it's really just a democrate thing with you. Do you really think that Clinton wanted the deaths of those soldiers in Somalia? NO! When you see the real story of Black Hawk Down, try fighting the Malitia groups for a change. Be pissed at them, not OUR own damn country, fool! We as a nation need to get one thing straight. Weather its the Bush, Clinton, or DIP-SHIT addministration, you as an American should support our leaders. If you don't like them, then leave the country. If you want to talk shit and bring greater division within America ... then move your ass to Iraq. Hopefully, we can take you out next. has has the video but I warn you it is vary very disturbing.
