Strange happenings with the Nick Berg story. It seems like there is so much more too it then the media and the adminstration is telling us. Rueters reports that the F.B.I. saw him three times
, while he was being detained by the Iraqi police.
While he was held, he wasn't formally charged with anything. Something tells me if this guy had survived the war he would have been the next Lee Harvey Oswald.

Boondocks got it right

Shrub is now telling America to be grateful
to Dr. Strangelove for his efforts in the battle against terra.
I'm grateful alright, Rumsfeld smartly ignored all the prewar planning by the state department, which has lead to more than 500 soldier's deaths, plus he had no idea that the Iraq prison problem was a problem until it was on 60 minutes II. I'm also grateful at a leader who briefs the Senate Armed Services Committee and fails to mention this problem to them.
Where do I send the thank you?
The humble Commander in Chief apologized to Jordan about the Iraqi Prisoner abuse. Courtesy of Google
here a gaggle of press coverage.
Geographically speaking Jordan is as close as you can get to Iraq without being Saudi Arabia, but why didn't Schrub apologize the Iraqis. Maybe he fiqures because of their close proximity the Iraqis will pick up the apology from Jordan:
Map incluced for the non geographically inclined.
Note how well Saudi Arabia is spelled on there.
In my newer better blog I talk about Bush's Alhurried Response
to this prisoner abuse thing.
