Al"America allowed the bin Laden family, two days after ? two days after September 11 ? to fly around America and pick up all the bin Laden relatives, about 24 of them, and take them to Europe? Not a single one of them was interrogated by the FBI."

Isnt it possible that the Bush administration wanted to move the bin Laden family members, who were legitimatlly in the US, so they would not become victims of American reprisals? Also, the bin Laden family signed a statement officially disowning Osama in 1994? And isnt it true that the one brother of Osama, Abdullah, who stayed in America afterwards was telephoned by the FBI, but never questioned in person, and was completly willing to do so if the FBI had approched him?

With all of these facts I answer your question.

Could it also be that Bush did not want American reprisal on his former oil business partners from the '80s? There are too many rumours about 9/11, like why the US didn't send up their fighters as is required during such an event, or when Bush actually knew of the attacks themselves? As for Nick Berg, it was a tragedy.

I have a challenge for you. I'm going to throw down the gauntlet, so to speak. Will you pick it up? Everyone in this thread. See if you can't avoid turning this into yet another 'we hate America and find fault in everything they do' and 'we love America and see no fault in anything they do' argument? I see it's already begun, but perhaps it could end abruptly. Think it's possible to do that? No, I don't want to hear 'well he started it'. I just think it'd be interesting to see if you can actually do it. This is a thread about a man who has been brutally, probably painfully, murdered for no reason. Old news it may be, but it happened, never-the-less. Show a little respect, eh? Whatever your political view? There are plenty of other 'I hate/love America threads' (by design or by mutation) you could do this in...

He started it.... ;)

No reason?? Is that so? I've already explained the motive. Motive = Reason. Motive = American prisoner abuse.

There is no reason for anybody to be killed at all, and certainly not in that manner.

Reason: The basis or motive for an action, decision, or conviction. An underlying fact or cause that provides logical sense for a premise or occurrence.

'Logical' being the key word there.

The point is, this isn't the place for it. The thread about US soldiers abusing prisoners in Iraq is, if that's still around.

The two events are linked. One crime was caused by the other.

Not that his death wasn't sad, but there are over 10,000 other people dead in Iraq with families and friends, and even if they are supposed to be the bad guy, remeber Nicholas Berg was a bad guy to them. So lets just create another 10,000 threads based on everyone else that died. Who cares to start?
