The Nick Berg video: what is wrong with these pictures? 

Are the corporate media newsfakers who saw this snuff video so stupid that they didn't notice that the duplicating equipment kept being turned on and off, and that the audio and time track were added afterwards? Also, the wall color in the video seems to be the same as the walls in Abu Ghraib prison. And, if they closely watched the person standing on the left, that several frames were duplicated?

Aside from questions about the orange jumpsuit Nick Berg was wearing and the plastic chair he was sitting in that suspiciously looks similar to a chair Pfc. Lynndie England was photographed in at Abu Ghraib prison, the most telling thing about the video is what is absent when Berg's head is severed: blood. Slicing through the carotid arteries of a live person would have produced a geyser of blood spraying the executioner, the person holding down Berg and those gathered in closely. But there is no blood. There is not even a pool of blood on the floor where Berg's body lies. That can lead to only one conclusion: Berg was already dead before the grisly decapitation.

And how from that video could anyone tell that the person clad in black was Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, a high level al Qaida operative, whom the US military reported was killed April 3 in the bombing of Falluja? Did the Bushies lie about that, too, or has al-Zargawi also been resurrected like Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, who was reported killed in a Sept. 11, 2002 shootout with Pakistani police in Karachi only to be arrested on March 1, 2003, in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, as the new alleged mastermind of 9/11 and the executioner of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl?

Is the Berg murder another sloppy black op ordered by the Bushies to divert attention from the torture of Iraqi prisoners or was the military behind it in an attempt to destroy the crazed Bush administration?
