Michael Berg, the farther of Nick Berg who was executed by an 
Islamist militant group in Iraq, speaks to Robin Young of Here and 
Now, a radio program on WBUR.  Robert H. Reid of the Associated Press 
reports: In the video of Berg, the executioners said they had tried 
to trade him for prisoners at Abu Ghraib. 'For the mothers and wives 
of American soldiers, we tell you that we offered the U.S. 
administration to exchange this hostage for some of the detainees in 
Abu Ghraib and they refused,' one of the men read from a statement." 
Did Bush sacrifice Nick Berg, refusing to negotiate with the 
hostage-takers, without telling Nick's family?  More on the subject
