Hmmm, The Plot Thickens

From CBS News:

U.S. officials say the FBI questioned Berg in 2002 after a computer password Berg used in college turned up in the possession of Zaccarias Moussaoui, the al Qaeda operative arrested shortly before 9/11 for his suspicious activity at a flight school in Minnesota.

The bureau had already dismissed the connection between Berg and Moussaoui as nothing more than a college student who had been careless about protecting his password.

But in the wake of Berg's gruesome murder, it becomes a stranger than fiction coincidence -- an American who inadvertently gave away his computer password to one notorious al Qaeda operative is later murdered by another notorious al Qaeda operative.

Berg's body was found Saturday in Baghdad. Two e-mails he sent to his family and friends show he traveled widely and unguarded throughout Iraq, an unsafe practice rarely done by Westerners.

Very odd indeed. Make of it what you will, but I hope this isn't the part where we find out that Nick Berg was a traitor - or, worse, that his family is less than patriotic (what with the senior Berg's anti-Bush and anti-Rumsfeld rantings, rather than blaming those who took the head of his son).

Bizarre. This is one to watch.

Update: Wizbang is watching it.

Update 2: From the comments -

Berg Senior may be a crackpot, but "anti-Bush and anti-Rumsfeld rantings" hardly qualify one as "unpatriotic."
Quite right, and not my intention to portray anti-Administration comments as unpatriotic. I was merely hypothesizing based upon this new twist, Berg's death, and his father's reaction, taken as a whole - granted, assuming the worst. I sincerely hope this is all nothing but a strange twist of fate.
