Has anyone seen this---beheaded Berg on FR's 'enemies list'
Edited on Sun May-16-04 07:39 AM by Skinner
by an Irish writer, Fintan Dunne

Nick Berg, 26 disappeared into incommunicado detention after his arrest by Iraqi police in March, 2004. He vanished again after his release 13 days later. His body was found last Saturday in Baghdad, and a video of his beheading --supposedly by a radical Islamic group-- was posted on the Internet on Tuesday.

The official story of his gruesome murder has many dubious aspects, not least the real reason why Iraqi police detained the young man at a checkpoint. New research by BreakForNews has uncovered a plausible explanation.


The FreeRepublic.com web site and forum has a reputation for right-wing views, fanatical Republicanism and relentless pro-war activism.

On 7th March, 2004, just three weeks before the first anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, an 'enemies' list of anti-war groups and individuals was posted on the Free Republic forum.

1. very, very scary stuff
If freepers are being allowed to 'blacklist' people and someone actually listens, where will this country be in 10 years?

I hate Freepers

3. sorry
I haven't been on DU for a while. I had an enormous workload to finish my history degree this semester, worked full time to boot.
I am out of touch, but I am still fighting to retake my country from the Bush admin

4. No problem..
congratulations on your degree!

A lot of people lately have been staying in the lounge to avoid the Berg debate (sad to say I'm not one of them).

General Discussion's a better place.

my natural place on DU is in the lounge, where the tension is lower and the people more open minded. I usually just go to the lounge rather than the other forums.

I think this is the scariest development in American politics--when radical freepers can influence government investigations---
I am really concerned about this.

Nice looking cat---it looks like my mother's cat.
