Liberal Frothing

I didn’t know that Nick Berg was from my area until I read this article in the local paper.  (Hat tip to mom again for this one.)  It turns out his dad, Michael Berg, is a complete wackjob.

Michael Berg trivialized the horror of his son’s death by politicizing it. ... Berg’s latest excursion into "The Twilight Zone" is a column he’s written for liberal newspapers across the world.  Michael Berg quickly skips over why his son, a Jewish man, was traveling alone in a Muslim country at war.  He never mentions that his son was warned to get out of Iraq by U.S. authorities but refused to leave.
"People ask me why I focus on putting the blame for my son’s tragic and atrocious end on the Bush administration.  They ask: ’Don’t you blame the five men who killed him?’  I have answered that I blame them no more or less than the Bush administration."
Did anyone blame Bill Clinton when Marines were killed and their bodies dragged through the streets of Somalia?  Not even John "Say Anything" Kerry has stooped to Michael Berg’s level during the recent media hysteria surrounding Nick Berg’s grisly murder.
Michael Berg also blames the abuse of prisoners at Iraq’s Abu Ghraib prison for his son’s death.  He calls the misguided actions of a few prison guards an atrocity.  To compare taking a snapshot of a naked Iraqi terrorist to "an atrocity" cheapens the very word.  The Holocaust was an atrocity.  The systematic murder, rape and torture of 600,000 Iraqi men, women and children by Saddam Hussein is an atrocity.  The death of 3,000 innocent Americans on Sept. 11, 2001, is an atrocity.
