Local Reaction to Nick Berg's Execution Video

By  | 

Political Science professor Kelly Eaton says there will be more fallout still to come from the photos of prisoner abuse at an Iraqi jail.

Independent contractor Nick Berg was beheaded in response to the abuse allegations. Eaton calls those photos "Hard to take," but says the U.S. left the door wide open to terrorism following the abuse fallout.

Local Iraqis living in Lincoln say the violence towards Americans is unacceptable, but the media should focus on the rebuilding of Iraq and not just the abuse photos and execution video.
