The Mystery of Nick Berg Solved (Probably)

Did you wonder why Nick Berg had been arrested by Iraqi police?

Or why the CIA offered to help ferry him out of country?

Seems strange, right?

Well, the mystery seems to be clearing up. Berg told his friends he had been suspected by Iraqi police of being a spy, due to his Jewish name and the Israeli stamp in his passport.

That would explain why the US consulate wanted to help get him out of the country. But he wanted to help the Iraqis, or to just see that part of the world, so he stayed, at great peril to himself.

We're awfully glad that the Iraqi police had to spend three fucking weeks detaining a suspected Israeli spy. It's not as if there are terrorists or criminals or insurgents in their country that need to be dealt with.

No, arrest the Jew. It's the Jew, you know, who's really the trouble-maker.

Presumably they feared the Israelis wanted to steal the top-secret Arab/Muslim formula for political dysfunction, cultural primativism, and social pathology.

Swell people. We're more and more glad we liberated them from Saddam Hussein.

Here's the next shoe to drop, we're afraid:

The bastards in the Iraqi police tipped off their friends in Al Qaeda that Berg would make a good victim.

We hope the FBI is looking hard at those guys.

The Arab and Muslim world does not like the merciful way we've conducted this war.

They will like the way we conduct the next war even less.
