american killed in Abu Ghraib retribution stunt

An Al-Qaeda-related website has just posted a video which shows the beheading of 26-year-old jewish american civilian Nicholas Berg, a private businessman from Pennsylvania who was in Iraq looking for contracts. His body was found in Baghdad over the weekend.

Berg, who was executed with a long knife, was beheaded to avenge the abuse of Iraqi prisoners by U.S. soldiers. The event was similiar to the 2002 murder of Daniel Pearl, who was forced to admit his Jewishness on tape just before his captors cut off his head.
