Bush Says There is No Connection

May 13 - President Bush is rejecting the link to the prison abuse to the beheading of American Nick Berg. He says there is no justification for his murder calling it a brutal execution.

Bush says Berg's killers are just trying to shake up America's will in Iraq.

Meanwhile, the body of the slain civilian is back home. A private memorial is planned for Friday.

Berg's sister said, "We do not want this to be a circus, out of respect for my family, we ask that if you do not have some connection to our family that you stay away from the memorial service, please!"

Berg's family is devastated by his death. He apparently traveled to Iraq to find work as a communications tower builder.
