CIA Concludes Terrorist Leader Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi Is Person Shown on Video Beheading Nick Berg

05-13-2004 12:16 PM
By KATHERINE PFLEGER SCHRADER, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON -- U.S. intelligence officials have concluded that terrorist leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was the person shown on a video beheading an American civilian in Iraq, based on an analysis of the voice on the video, a CIA official said Thursday.

Intelligence officials conducted a technical analysis of the video released on an Islamic web site May 11 and determined "with high probability" that the person shown speaking on the tape _ wearing a head scarf and a ski mask _ is al-Zarqawi, a CIA official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity.

The person who is shown speaking in the video _ determined to be al-Zarqawi _ is then shown on the video decapitating American citizen Nicholas Berg, the official said.

Berg's body was found in Baghdad on Saturday. On Tuesday, an Islamic Web site released the video, titled "Sheikh Abu Musab al-Zarqawi slaughters an American infidel with his own hands."

The speaker on the video, now believed to be al-Zarqawi, reads a lengthy statement criticizing Islamic scholars and taunting the crusaders.

Standing alongside four other militants wearing headscarves and masks to disguise themselves, al-Zarqawi then kills Berg.

If that is true, then why does he have a bag over his head. He already knows that he is wanted by us dead or alive. There is no point in hiding his identity. Seems suspicious. But kill him anyway if it was him or not.

That fucker needs to feel pain.



Edited to add that CalGat is on to something. Why is that fucker wearing a hood? The title of the video states he is the one doing the cutting. Why is his face obscured?

'No connection between Iraq and al Qaeda' is, and has always been, pure bullshiite!

That's what I've been thinking.

Of course the anti-Bush anti-war crowd will just argue that our unjust invasion of Iraq brought al Qaeda and the Iraqis together against their common enemy.

Wow. The etched-in-stone Al Qaeda/Iraq connection. What a shocker.

Of course the "loyal opposition" will claim AQ only came to Iraq "after" we invaded.

The guy alienated himself from a large group of people, muslims who do not have radical agendas. Someone may be inclined to give him up for nothing more than the peace bonus. He is a pariah and it was the act of a desperate man, losing his influence. Even Arabs acknowledge his act as counter to anything that would benefit them in the eyes of the world.

[liberalscum]Nick Bergs murder was orchastrated by the CIA in order to create a false connection between Iraq and the patriots the Bush administration commoly refers to as terrorists! This is why all their faces were covered so they could blame Al-Zarqawi [/liberalscum]
