Nick Berg Decapitation

From Paris, Carmen Negrin sends this item distributed by the totally discredited Aztlan organization. Stanford University students have just stopped funding the related MeCHA organization, which likewise has no respect for journalistic ethics. It is disturbing that this is spread in France, where there is a great eagerness to swallow anything anti-American. I am prepared to criticize the US, its administration, and the war in Iraq, but in comparison with Aztlan News the disgraceful Daily Mirror of England is a model of serious journalism.

Nick Berg decapitation video declared "a fraud" by medical doctor

The first casualty of war is the truth and this one has been no exception. La Voz de Aztlan obtained a copy of the video showing the beheading of American Nick Berg of Philadelphia and immediately something very odd was readily apparent. Not only were the purported screams of Nick Berg not in synchrony with the decapitation but their was also a total lack of blood spurting out as his jugular and other veins and arteries were being cut.

We forwarded the video to Doctor Raul Castro Guevara, a surgeon and forensic expert in Mexico City for his expert opinion. He wrote back and commented, "No hay manera que el individuo en el video estaba vivo y su corazon funcionando cuando le estaban cortando la cabeza. En estos casos, el corazon impela sangre con gran presion, y se corta las arterias del cuello, hay una gran cantidad de sangre que salpica por todos lados. En mi opinion el video es un fraude."

Doctor Raul Castro Guevara is saying that there is no way that the individual in the video was alive and his heart pumping while his neck was being cut. The doctor adds that in these cases, while the heart is pumping, cutting a person's artery in the neck, would cause copious amounts of blood to spurt all over the immediate environment. He says that in his opinion the video is a fraud.

We hope that our readers view the video and see for themselves. We will provide a copy to any of our subscribers that have been supportive of our publication. Send a request to La Voz de Aztlan at Fake_Video@Aztlan.Net

If you are able to view the video, please pay close attention to the five so called Al queda terrorists making the political statement. Look at their height, weight, skin color and their mannerisms. Do you think these people are Arabs or Iraqis?

La Voz de Aztlan

From Paris, Carmen Negrín sent an article from the discredited Aztlan News saying that the photo of Nick Berg being decapitated was a fraud. Christopher Jones found the item disturbing but interesting. John Heelan says: "A police officer I know well whose day-to-day work involves working on sudden death events (murders and suicides) tells me that arterial pressure released by slicing the neck artery of a living person (or animal) will project blood some distance- perhaps WAIS medical experts can confirm or deny that comment. It is immaterial, other than to sadistic voyeurs whether Nick Berg was alive or dead when decapitated. According to the news media, his body was discovered headless, and our deepest sympathies must go to his family and friends, while reserving our utmost disgust for the perpetrators of this horrendous crime.

The event does raise a worrying problem: why was the murderer identified so positively as al-Zaqarwi? Do the Al Quaeda terrorists (and/or the Bush Administration) need to focus Western hate on another individual now that Saddam Hussein has been nullified and Bush declares the capture of Bin Laden "is no longer a priority". [Remember Orwell's "1984" Big Brother needed to have the "hate sessions" focused on Goldstein., the leader of the movement against Big Brother and "hate weeks" against Eurasia and Eastasia.] In a pre-emptive answer to the inevitable rebuttal by some WAISers, I do *not* believe that the Bush Administration would stoop so low as to arrange such an atrocity for political reasons, but think that the timing and widespread publication of the Berg killing is suspicious. So I am perhaps not so sure about some of Bush Administration's friends concerned about the apparent weakening support of the US public for the latest Iraq venture, especially after the revelation of the systematic abuse of prisoners. On the other hand, does Al Quaeda require another figure-head to present to the Muslim world to replace Bin Laden for some reason? If so, what has happened to Bin Laden himself?"

RH: I do not share John's suspicions about the timing and publicity about the murder. Is he suggesting that Bush arranged the timing of the release of the information about the murder? Why? Bush did not control the information. Did Bush say that the capture of Bin Laden was no longer a priority?

I asked: " Did Bush say that the capture of Bin Laden was no longer a priority?" John Heelan quotes Bush:
"The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him." 9/13/01
"I want justice...There's an old poster out West, as I recall, that said, 'Wanted: Dead or Alive,'" 9/17/01
"I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority."
"I am truly not that concerned about him." 3/13/02 (The New American, 4/8/02)
What a difference a year makes!"

Regarding the killing of Nick Berg, John Heelan asked "Why was the murderer identified so positively as Abu al-Zarqawi?". Ed Jajko answers: "One reason is that the Islamist web sites that presented the videotape of the murder identified the murderer as al-Zarqawi. His name featured prominently in the headlines of the articles that accompanied the videotape. Those headlines put it very bluntly, that "al-Zarqawi slaughters an American."
