Remember the opening of the film "Magnolia"? It starts with some documentary facts -- an owner of the "Greenberryhill Pharmacy" gets killed by the three drifters whose last names were Green, Berry, and Hill; a fellow who decides to commit suicide, jumps from the roof of his building, and gets killed by the bullet fired from the riffle in the same building two stories down, and the shooter is his mother fighting with his father, accidentally discharging the weapon.
Well, here is another one: Zaccarias Moussaoui used the email address that belonged to Nick Berg, well before the recent events took place, and apparently, there is no connection whatsover between these events. Can't find any references on the web -- just heard it on Fox News.
It seemed somewhat suspicious to begin with that Berg, a sort-of entrepeneur I suppose with no ties to the Coalition, nor the U.S. government, was roaming around Iraq in the middle of a war. I'm eager to see the reports in the next few weeks, which will undoubtedly uncover more details.
I myself do not think it is a coincedence. There was a reason Berg was in Iraq, and his ties to the Sept. 11 conspirator may have something to do with it.
Or maybe he was working for us the whole time? CIA? Maybe it was no accident that he rubbed shoulders with the Sept. 11 conspirator. Maybe Berg was part of a bigger plan. We'll see.
"He was happy to cooperate, and that was never an issue," he said. He emphasized that the individual was not a friend of his son's or even an acquaintance -- "just a guy sitting next to him on the bus."
So Berg gave his password to a complete stranger on a bus and that stranger gave the password to Moussaoui?
Forget strange coincidences. What kind of idiot gives his email password to a complete stranger?
You would be amazed at what non-techie people will do. Some people's passwords are just ridiculous, they are practiacally non-existant.
I read that Berg was in Iraqi custody and that US had visited him a few times. Iraqi's claim that he was shortly in their custody and then US took over control. Regardless of who is right, why was he in custoday in the first place? There is more to this for sure.
There was a study done where random people were asked for their email and network passwords. 70% of respondents gave out passwords on the promise of a bar of second rate chocolate, 40% didn't need even that and gave their passwords and usernames to perfect strangers without wavering on being asked politely.
