Apparently, he actually worked for awhile at Abu Gharib. Whether or not this is significant, I don't know. What's interesting is that MSNBC had a story mentioning the fact, then pulled the paragraph they mentioned it in.

Here is some documentation that he really was, excerpts from his email communications with friends back home.

Here was a posting on a Russian site talking, in detail about the video with some analysis, but I lost the link. I'll find it again.

In other investigations that I should've taken the time to save links for, attempts to determine the exact source of the video are leading to odd dead-ends. The video appears to have been on the site for only a brief period of time (if at all), yet all three major networks managed to get copies before it disappeared.

This link is broken--directs back to same page. I did the same thing recently by putting in an extra quotation mark. Also, you've apparently left off the link end tag, as the rest of the post is highlighted as link.

Thanks, lost the link now, but I'll find it again sometime today.

What are the odds that this is only a coincidence? I guess it is a small world....

*chuckle* Yeah, I suspect that may be a cause actually. It may be why he was detained and possibly also why he was killed. I don't know. I wish someone would do a more thorough investigation of this. I can only hope that one is going on right now.
