    Related – WATCH: Joe Scarborough Goes Off On Mika Brzezinski Excerpted from LegalSchnauzer: Many Americans probably have forgotten, or never knew, that a 28-year-old female staff member was found dead in the summer of 2001 in the office of U.S. Rep. Joe Scarborough (R-FL). Officials in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, determined that Lori Klausutis died from an accident. The mainstream press largely ignored the case, but our review of several investigative reports indicates the official finding is highly questionable. Does that mean Joe Scarborough is a murderer? No. But we suspect someone who had access to Scarborough’s office in 2001...

    Many Americans have suggested that more moderate Muslims should stand up to extremists, speak out for tolerance, and apologize for sins committed by their brethren. That’s reasonable advice, and as a moderate myself, I’m going to take it. (Throat clearing.) I hereby apologize to Muslims for the wave of bigotry and simple nuttiness that has lately been directed at you. The venom on the airwaves, equating Muslims with terrorists, should embarrass us more than you. Muslims are one of the last minorities in the United States that it is still possible to demean openly, and I apologize for the slurs....

    MIAMI, (AP) -- A federal judge refused to dismiss the terrorism support charges against alleged al-Qaida operative Jose Padilla on Friday, rejecting defense claims that his 3 1/2 years in custody as an enemy combatant violated his constitutional right to a speedy trial. U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke agreed with prosecutors that Padilla's years in isolation at a Navy brig did not count because he had not yet been charged. The criminal charges came when Padilla was added to an existing Miami terrorism support indictment in November 2005. Only then did the clock start for the Sixth Amendment's right to...

    The Meaning of 'Islamofascism' The MEMRI Report By STEVEN STALINSKY May 24, 2006 Since the war on terrorism began many new Arabic and Islamic terms including "Fatwa" and "Jihad" have been introduced to Western vernacular. To the displeasure of some Islamists other terms such as "homicide bomber" and "Islamofascism" have also been introduced. An article titled "How the Right Played the Fascism Card Against Islam" on the Web site of the Council on American-Islamic Relations is highly critical of using the term "Islamofascism":

    If you are looking for the legacy of Abu Musab al Zarqawi, do not look in the concrete rubble of so-called safe house in Baqubah that became his final resting place. Instead, look less than 10 miles to the west, on the side of the road in the desert town of Hadid, for a pile of cardboard banana boxes. Inside those boxes were nine human heads. Some of the heads still had their blindfolds on. Iraqi police are still attempting to identify the murdered men. Days earlier, in Baquba, Iraqi police found another eight severed heads.

"I see more death coming out of al-Zarqawi's death," Michael Berg told The Associated Press after learning a U.S. air strike had killed the leader of al-Qaida in Iraq.

    PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - Michael Berg, whose son Nick was beheaded in Iraq in 2004, said on Thursday he felt no sense of relief at the killing of the al Qaeda in Iraq leader blamed for his son's death. Asked what would give him satisfaction, Berg, an anti-war activist and candidate for U.S. Congress, said: "The end of the war and getting rid of George Bush." The United States said its aircraft killed Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the insurgent leader who masterminded the death of hundreds in suicide bombings and was blamed for the videotaped beheading of Nick Berg, a U.S. contractor,...

    PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - Almost two years after the videotaped beheading of U.S. contractor Nick Berg in Iraq, his father is running a third-party race for the U.S. Congress on a platform seeking a complete withdrawal of American troops. Michael Berg, a veteran anti-war activist and retired schoolteacher who campaigns in jeans and a T-shirt, is the Green Party candidate for the Delaware seat of seven-term Republican Rep. Michael Castle (news, bio, voting record). Berg, 61, acknowledges that his late entry into politics is a result of his son's grisly death at the hands of hooded captors in May 2004. The...

    Michael Berg says he and Nick shared a belief in taking a principled stand. It is this belief that Mr. Berg says inspired his Green Party bid for Delaware's only Congressional seat in the wake of Nick's kidnapping and killing in Iraq two years ago. "Nick stood by what he thought was right," said Mr. Berg, a 61-year-old former teacher who is trying to unseat a seven-term Republican, Michael N. Castle. "I plan on doing the same." The videotaped beheading of Nick Berg, a 26-year-old freelance radio-tower repairman, shocked a world audience after it was broadcast on the Internet. "I'm...

    At least 21 detainees who died while being held in U.S. custody in Iraq and Afghanistan were killed, many during or after interrogations, according to an analysis of Defense Department data by the Aerican Civil Liberties Union. The analysis, released Monday, looked at 44 deaths described in records obtained by the ACLU. Of those, the group characterized 21 as homicides, and said at least eight resulted from abusive techniques by military or intelligence officers, such as strangulation or "blunt force injuries," as noted in the autopsy reports. The 44 deaths represent a partial group of the total number of prisoners...

Gerlach, whose Sixth Congressional District includes the West Chester suburb where Berg lived, said it was "clear the Iraqi police were only going to hold Nick until such time as they were told by U.S. authorities that it was OK to release him." "As to why there was that length of detention, and what could have been done to shorten it, that's a question that is still outstanding,"...

    DUBAI, July 8 (Reuters) - An al Qaeda-linked group refused a ransom offer before beheading U.S. hostage Nicholas Berg in Iraq two months ago, an audiotape purporting to come from their leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi said. "Some intermediaries tried to save this parasite (Berg) by offering whatever sums of money we wanted, and despite our great need for money for jihad (holy war) we chose to avenge our Islamic nation," said the voice on the tape, found on the Internet on Thursday. The voice on the tape posted on Islamist Web sites resembled that on a tape attributed to Zarqawi...

    July 8, 2004 -- The kidnappers of U.S. businessman Nicholas Berg refused a ransom and beheaded him to avenge what American-led forces had done to Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to a recording purportedly issued by militant leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. The 60-minute recording, which was posted on Islamic Web sites Tuesday, said unidentified people had tried to persuade the kidnappers to spare Berg's life. "They were ready to give us whatever sums of money we asked . . . to save this infidel's life," said the voice, purportedly that of Zarqawi, "But despite our desperate need of money...

    LONDON (Reuters) - The father of an American civilian beheaded in Iraq (news - web sites) accused President Bush (news - web sites) and the U.S. media Tuesday of ignoring the "horrible face of war." "People like George Bush and (U.S. Defense Secretary) Donald Rumsfeld (news - web sites) don't see the pain that people have to bear -- they don't know what it feels like to have your guts ripped out," Michael Berg told a news conference. The decapitated body of Berg's son Nick was found by a roadside in Baghdad and a grisly video of his beheading was...

    Father of American beheaded in Iraq calls handover a sham LONDON - The father of an American beheaded in Iraq said Tuesday the handover of sovereignty there was a sham and accused President Bush [related, bio] of causing immense pain to thousands of people by going to war. Michael Berg, whose 26-year-old son, Nicholas, was decapitated by militants, said at a news conference organized by the Stop the War Coalition that the transfer was ``nothing more than another nut-and-shell game.'' ``We know that the Iraqi people have not had an election yet, so we do not have a democracy over...

    Scenes in Fahrenheit 911 of U.S. soldiers taunting and sexually humiliating Iraqi civilians following the successful invasion were shot by Urban Hamid, an embedded Swedish-Iraqi journalist who is presently a doctoral candidate at the University of Colorado, the university's student newspaper Camera disclosed today (Tuesday). Moore has declined to respond to questions from interviewers about whether he resorted to subterfuge in order to embed photographers among U.S. forces and has been criticized for not showing footage of the abuses to U.S. military authorities earlier. But Camera reported that the controversial footage by Hamid was actually shown at a theater in...

    June 19, 2004 -- YESTERDAY'S brutal murder of Paul Johnson was just the latest atrocity by terrorist Wahhabis — extremist acolytes of the hate cult that's rooted in the heart of the Saudi state. And the lessons are simple: * Terrorism terrorizes. Extremely vile terrorism that literally goes for the throat terrorizes most of all. Bombs go off and are forgotten in a week. The horrible deaths of Daniel Pearl, Nick Berg, and Paul M. Johnson, Jr. stick in our minds. * Beheading is low-cost, and flatters the Wahhabis' belief that they are imitating the Prophet Muhammad, who lived in...

    <p>Do words matter? Does it matter when we care enough to write to a TV anchor? Can we alter how history is reported? YES...and here's how it happened in one instance.</p> <p>My husband, and I happened to be watching San Diego?s Channel 7's news at 4:30 PM yesterday, when they ran the story about Paul Johnson's beheading. We heard about it earlier in the day, but this was the first newscast we saw on TV about it. We watched in amazement, as the anchor read the story as Mr. Johnson was executed today..... At 5 PM, Marty Levin repeated virtually the same written story as the 4:30 anchor - complete with text graphics on a picture also referring to his EXECUTION. At that point, my husband couldn't take it any longer, and wrote to Marty Levin about it.</p>

    Liberal Democrats and the Left-Wing Media are Responsible for Johnson's Beheading - and Should ApologizeOnce again, in their quasi-religious zeal to tar the Bush administration for mere political gain, the media outlets that released, hyped, and faked photos of prisoner "abuse," and the liberal Democrat politicians who heinously fed the frenzy, are partially responsible for the beheadings of Nick Berg and Paul Johnson.  This is what happens when liberal zealots irresponsibly put politics above reason, logic, and humanity.Of course, the killers who executed this atrocity are directly to blame, but these liberal media outlets and politicians give them ready-made rhetoric,...
