Blame America First

On NPR this morning there was a segment in which NPR found a way to blame the USA for the death of Nicholas Berg. It turns out that Berg was interned for a while by the Coalition and because the Coalition did not process his case fast enough, he didn’t manage to escape Iraq before he was captured. Therefore, the Pentagon (and presumably Donald Rumself personally) are the real cause of Berg’s death, not the guys who cut his head off. The latter is just too simplismé for NPR.
