Berg killers nabbed?

It's confirmed: Four men were detained in the killing of Nicholas Berg. Two were released; two remain in custody.

It is not known whether these are the same four men whose arrest was mentioned a few days ago by an Iraqi official (as per Agence France-Presse).

Here's the kicker: According to the new story, the killers of Nicholas Berg have no known connection to Al Qaeda, and are led by the nephew of Saddam Hussein. I thought the CIA identified the head of the execution squad as Al Zarqawi!

When this tale starts making sense, I'll let you know.
