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.

* * *

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."
Not very creative.
When an Islamist Web site showed the video of a man severing Berg's head, the CIA said Zarqawi was probably the one wielding the knife.
And they should know.
The father said he was not convinced that Zarqawi's organization was responsible for his son's killing, as stated by the U.S. government. "I have been lied to by my own government," he said.
We've ALL been lied to by our own government. And this is neither the first time, nor the biggest lie.

With all respects... you're an idiot. They could have dropped those bombs on Zarqawi in your house and people like you still wouldn't believe he was dead. Then again, if that were the case, it wouldn't matter very much to you.

Just because you want to believe something is true, it doesn't automatically make it true. The fact that the media can put forth such a story without a shred of evidence or proof shows just how confident they are in the herd mentality of Americans.

Can you sincerely say that you don't believe your government would lie to you? If you can, then I guess ignorance truly is bliss.

Impeach the wormy little prick? Hell, Don't you think he should be put on trial for treason and war crimes, and if found guilty, hung by the neck until DEAD?

Stick around - you might pick up some much needed skills in logical reasoning.

Excuse me, but we have pictures of Zarqawi's dead body. What more do you need...to literally inspect the body firsthand?

Why is something not a conspiracy theory only if it is anti-America, but anything pro-America is somehow a conspiracy theory?

Zarqawi's face looked good for someone who was on the receiving end of two 500lb bombs. Did you see the rubble around him? Maybe he was outside 'tapping a kidney' when the bombs fell. Anyway, trust this gov't wehen they wiretap our phones to 'protect' us. Trust this gov't when they force Amazon to ban books like "America Deceived" by E.A. Blayre III. Trust this government when they cage protestor. Your entirely too trusting.

Anon you missed the perfunctary point! Bush needed another distraction from his low poll numbers, Iraq war failure, sliding stocks, falling Dollar and NSA scandals to keep dumbed down Americans from paying too much attention to reality. But a Zarqawi photo op means he has to near the bottom of the cracker barrel. Don't be fooled by the hype. The Hindenburg is just a spark away from glory...

I believe he is totally dead, but I would feel kinda funny trying to convince myself that a guy just has a bloody nose and still has fingerprints with 1000 pounds pounds of ordinance getting dropped on his noggin. The coalition shows up immediately finds his body and it's all good with the MAC cosmetics to cover up the wounds of a guy who should have been pretty much vaporized to start with, lol!! Al Qaida didn't like the guy either, I wouldn't be surprised if he got clipped by them and somebody got some some scratch for the body.

What confuses me is that Zarqawi was the big link between Iraq and al qaeda. I believe that Colin Powell or someone claimed that he had been in a bagdhad hospital to have his leg amputated.

So then they show this video of him playing with guns and of course the simple minded people were laughing at the fact that he was wearing tennis shoes instead of combat boots.

So now he's been killed for the third time, and we're just supposed to buy that?

I guess most americans can only remember a storyline of 30 minutes, and for special "documentaries," up to an hour.

Don't even consider the fact that many people have pretty good reason to believe he is actually trained and controlled by the CIA, a la El Salvadorean and Guatemalan death squads of the 1980's.

The reason the death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has received such scepticism is because the US military insists on muddying the intelligence waters. There are some unapalatable truths here:

On 10 April 2006 a Washington Post article by Thomas E. Ricks pointed out that a specific US military propaganda program was in place in regard to Zarqawi - which also targetted Western domestic audiences. They confirmed these details from lleaked US military documents:

"The U.S. military is conducting a propaganda campaign to magnify the role of the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq, according to internal military documents and officers familiar with the program. The effort has raised his profile in a way that some military intelligence officials believe may have overstated his importance and helped the Bush administration tie the war to the organization responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks."

The Post described how THE PENTAGON HAD CONCONCTED FAKE AL-ZARQAWI LETTERS boasting about suicide attacks and leaked them to Dexter Filkins of the New York Times, who published one of those letters despite the fact that both The NY Times and Filkins had severe doubts about the authenticity of the letter.

Western media generally, have been unwilling to acknowledge that there has been an officially sanctioned program of falsehoods run by the US military that makes every statement emanating from them problematic in terms of credibility.

It is vital that a nuanced and detailed analysis of Middle East and terrorism topics take place. People can do their own research but should pause to note that a number of Middle East politics and language experts have denounced as fake many of the audio tapes supposedly made by Osama bin Laden.

Given the admitted production of false documents by the Pentagon in regard to al-Zarqawi, people ought to exercise considerable caution in assessing any terrorist reporting arising from the US military.

The rest of the world now has yet another reason to laugh at naive, narrow-minded, group-think americans.

Too bad. We could have made something out of this country.

It is amazing to me just how ignorant so many americans are. Ignorant and arrogant. You truly are a bunch of sheeple. One point I'd like to make. "Zarqawi" has two 500 lb bombs dropped on him and gets a bloody nose. The twin towers has a "fire" on a few floors and falls down. I guess that makes Zarqawi more hardy than a 110 story building huh?

All you braindead folks who troll on sites looking to call us all terrorists for doubting the Bush admin after 100's of lies, should do yourselves a favor and go watch the free online movie... "Who Killed John O'Neill". The link is here...

Yeah amazing how good he can look after being bombed. People really need to look into 9/11 and see what occured on 9/12, total hatred for the middle east and loss of civil liberties. Why did buiding 7 fall? Why did the towers fall at perfect free fall? Why did the media talk about dancing arabs celebrating on 9/11 when they were Israeli art students dressed up as arabs? And for all the 911truth people quit believing that dumbass president attacked us on 9/11. It was all the zionists like Michael Chertoff who headed the 9/11 cleanup and is a dual citizen of Israel and that his mother is a former Mossad agent.

Since Zarqawi was reported dead in Sept 2005 and his family held a funeral, I'd be checking for frezer burns on the body. link

John pilger once derided the aussies as mushrooms, coz. “they are kept in the dark and fed bullshit all day”
Well, the yanks are also kept in the dark and fed bullshit all day, what’s more, they seem to prefer it that way too.
Here is just one vivid example.
Someone told the yanks that “the Chinese were behind the palace coup in 2005”, as usual the yanks simply swallow their daily dose of bs hook line and sinker.
I have seen lots of bald faced lies coming out from the democrazies, but this one surely takes the cake. So I told the yanks that the napalese don’t worry about china, in fact they are mightily warry about bharat and uncle sham.
Look, after the 2001 place tragedy, when the whole royal family was wiped out, the locals went to the street and demanded “death to India and usa”
Even now, the Nepalese are royally pissed off with bharat, who has been arming and even fought alongside the rna against the maoists while at the same time harboring and hobnobbing with the “terrarists” !!
If you think the yanks would be grateful for being shown the light then you have forgotten that mushrooms hate to see the light , they like to be kept in the dark and fed bullshit. That’s exactly what the freepers did, they deleted all my posts and kept the bullshit.
Talk about blissful ignorance.

What I really don't understand is why people are getting so excited about this? It isn't going to be this radical event that will change much. The deaths will continue to roll on....

If anything, this gets Haditha out of the headlines....

Ive mentioned this before on another site.There's a scene in Wouk's "Winds Of War" where a priest talks of a diplomat who's in denial of the Holocaust(during WWII). He mentions the will to disbelieve as being as powerful as the opposite.Certainly,some of you show evidence of that.
Begeegs uses a variant of the address of the letter used in "Our Town" to minimize any effects.Since it's doubtful he had a Latin class,let me mention "Sic transi gloria mundi" as a classier ploy for future use.Nothing really matters ,does it?

The mans house was hit with a very big bomb, not even a hair was burnt, his clothes was still there and there were no marks of powder burns or the looks of any incendiary devices. I hope when I'm hit dead on with a 1 ton bomb I look this good.... get a grip people

The first anonymous is a chickenshit. Too weak to even use their own name: cheap ass hit and run job in mindless herd-mentality terroristic fashion-kind of like all the terrorists running this country who they idealize.

And by the way pictures: all you need is pictures of a middle eastern person and oh my you have a terrorist. After all given the rich white terrorists in power, it is so difficult these days to find dead/slaughtered non-white people to sell to stupid guilable racist idiot america as a "terrorist".

P.S. Not suprised to hear Berg is running as a Green Party candidate. Have the Democraps, the fake opposition party, ever been oppossed to the Bu$hco terrorists or had any real interest in stopping them?

Nope, only the Green Party and Independent Progressives have stood up to the lies!

At Monday, June 12, 2006, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Sorry, I'm having trouble finding where Zarqawi's death is in question. Mr. Berg seems to be saying that he doesn't believe our current administration. To that I'd say, "What's New"?
On the other hand if you think that the sociopath currently in office as our President has ever been honest it is because you've chosen to blindly believe in that today’s Government will take care of you. They are not. They are destroying all that so many have worked for in the past 225 years.

People believe lies because they wish to be lied to. That is truly "herd" mentality. I have not followed this crap for well over two years, because i knew before, during and after 9/11 that we were being lied to. What happened to "Innocent until proven Guilty?" It does not matter as long as the Bush administration told us that Osama Bin Laden master mind 9/11 and the enemy is everywhere, yet we have not been hit or attacted since. I have never bought that story and i never will. That whole 9/11, Iraq, Zarqawi and all are Hollywood scripts. They are not good scripts, because they actually kill millions. This is disgusting!
