2. His murderer
Whoever it was, which I don't really know, so I can't answer your question. Unless I should say "other", except his murderer may be on your list, so again, I don't know which thing to click.

4. I think capitalism was responsible for Berg's death
he was in Iraq to pursue the american dream of making money. Before this happened my coworker and I both were talking about what would make it worthwhile to go to Iraq and we both decided that no amount of money would be worth the risk....

6. Obviously...
I have to vote for Zarqawi(sp)....

They had this man in their custody, they could have spared his life or killed him. They chose to slaughter him. It 100 percent their fault. If the stories about him being given the chance to leave and refusing are true, then he himself shares some of the blame unfortunately. It's a dangerous place.. we all weight our risks and benifits and act accordingly, we are the masters of our own destiny. I'm sorry but it's not Bush's fault some savages beheaded a defensless captive human being (who by the way had done nothing at all to them)... no matter how bad you want to blame him for it.

11. Zarqawi wasn't in the room.
For one thing, he may be dead. (Which is admittedly never a certainty after Osama, Saddam, Chemical Ali, and Baghdad Bob.

For another, a guy who goes from reading a letter, to pulling a knife, to tackling Berg all within 5 seconds ain't gonna be moving that fast on a peg leg.

12. I've been reading everwhere....
They they have indentified the voice on the tape as his voice....

Either way though...

If what you say is true, I have to revise my answer to say, without a doubt, the men in the room, particularly the one holding the knife, are responsible for the reasons I described....

7. Good grief
For those that voted for Berg do you also blame half-naked young women for getting raped?
