Bush's televised gloating over Zarqawi backfires
No sooner did boy blunder invoke the memory of victims allegedly beheaded by Zarqawi than WaPo quoted Michael Berg, the father of one of the victims as saying that he felt no sense of relief at the killing of Zarqawi and that only "the end of the war and getting rid of George Bush" would give him satisfaction.
So much for Bush's photo-op.
Berg, who is running as a Green Party candidate, has repeatedly blamed President Bush and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld for his son's death.Not very creative.* * *
Zarqawi's organization took responsibility for the execution of Nick Berg, 26, in May 2004. The video was published with a caption saying: "Abu Musab al-Zarqawi slaughtering an American."
