cut them some slack?

OK, not to cut the administration any slack or anything, but the fact that Nick Berg was held/questioned/noticed by the coalition/Iraqi authority/FBI doesn't really have any relevance to his death. It's a sad and darkly ironic note, but there is no intent or negligence involved here. Just a tragic sequence of events. Let's move on, shall we?

After all, we've barely begun analyzing how, since nobody's apologizing for this atrocity, our handling of the Abu Ghraib tortures must be reaching new heights of nobility and courage.
