Poll question: The Berg Murder: A Democratic Underground Poll
Advertisements [?]
Edited on Wed May-12-04 07:24 AM by liberalnproud
I have read many many threads on this subject over the past 18 or so hours. Some people see it as a MIHOP type of incident. Some people imagine it as a LIHOP type of incident. Some DUers are angry at the tin-foil rantings of some. Some believe the official story that is being told via the American press.

There was alot of infighting going on yesterday and last night. There was alot of name-calling. Some people have left DU forever because of bad feelings. Some DUer's, I noticed, stayed completely away from the threads. I would assume it was because of the toxic nature of the exchanges taking place.

I would like to get an idea of what percentages of our DUers believe we are not getting the correct story from our media. What percentage accept the story. It is an issue that has caused great division here.

The intention of this poll is not to start a flamefest. It is to find out scientifically how we are divided.

Poll result (340 votes)
This poor kid was just at the wrong place at the wrong time. Al Queda needed a subject and they found one. (88 votes, 26%)Vote
This was not Al Queda, but some militant Iraqi group, trying to use Mr. Berg to get friends or family released from the Abu Graib prison. (10 votes, 3%)Vote
This was an act committed for the purposed of forcing the withdrawal of the Coalition from Iraq. (2 votes, 1%)Vote
This was a staged event to get the torture by Americans off the front pages and the lead stories of American news. (20 votes, 6%)Vote
I am not sure yet. But I have some questions. (139 votes, 41%)Vote
This story just doesn't sit right with me. I think it is likely it is a staged event. (35 votes, 10%)Vote
This is definately a CIA/Mossad propoganda piece, with the purpose of inflaming the Americans, and shoring up waning support for this war. (46 votes, 14%)Vote
