Berg Died for Bush, Rumsfeld ‘Sins’ – Father
PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) – The father of Nick Berg, the American beheaded in Iraq (news – web sites), directly blamed President Bush (news – web sites) and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on Thursday for his son’s death.
“My son died for the sins of George Bush and Donald Rumsfeld. This administration did this,” Berg said in an interview with radio station KYW-AM.
In the interview from outside his home in West Chester, Pennsylvania, a seething Michael Berg also said his 26-year-old son, a civilian contractor, probably would have felt positive, even about his executioners, until the last minute.
“I am sure that he only saw the good in his captors until the last second of his life,” Berg said. “They did not know what they were doing. They killed their best friend.”
I’m sure he was their best friend. This story has some weird undercurrents. The father was a well known Bush basher before this. He organized protests and signed petitions. (an A.N.S.W.E.R type)
Since the release of the details of his son’s death he has tried to use his dead son as a political weapon.
This really shows the thinking of these sick people. They want to be friends with radical Ismalo-Facisist murders but bash the President.
Then when something like this happens, rather than morn quietly, he steps on the body of his dead son to bash Bush. No matter how long I live, I’ll never understand people that hate Bush this much.
And what about the Jesus reference? His son “died for their sins?” Did Bush kidnap him and drag him to Iraq?
This event says far more about the father than it does Bush.
Update below the fold
The fact Michael Berg is using his son’s death to push his politics is now undeniable.
