Tinfoil Hat Theater

Ready for some mind-blowing conspiracy theorizing? kuro5hin.org has a post with 50 Fishy Circumstances, Contradictory Claims, and Videotape Anomalies in Nick Berg's Killing. There's some weird stuff going on with this story, so take a look at the list (and the debunkings in the comments).

The "wag the dog" idea is especially intriguing. However, you could show me proof that the government ordered electrodes strapped to every Arab man's testicles and I still wouldn't believe we could do this to an American.

On the other hand, I remember watching the Daniel Pearl video and there were quite a few differences, most notably the insistance that Pearl talk about being a Jew (Nick Berg was also Jewish).

So check it out if you're in the mood for a good conspiracy. That's one of the fun things about running one of the most secretive administrations ever; you don't get the benefit of the doubt too often.
