MILAN, Italy (AP) -- Italian police were listening as the man identified as an Egyptian radical shouted with joy while watching a video of the beheading of American Nicholas Berg by his al Qaeda captors. "Come nearer, watch closely, this is the politics you have to follow, the politics of the sword," he advised another man as Berg's screams rang out. "Go to hell, enemy of God, kill him, kill him, cut it well, cut off his head," he said. Authorities say the statements recorded from phone taps and microphones show that Rabei Osman Sayed Ahmed, a 34-year-old Egyptian facing trial in Milan next month on terrorism charges[...]
The trial is considered one of Europe's major terrorist prosecutions in recent years. Ahmed is not only accused of terrorist crimes in Italy and of having links to cells across Europe, but he also is considered one of the masterminds of the March 11, 2004, train bombings in Madrid that killed 191 people and wounded more than 1,600.
[...] "The Madrid attack is my project and those who died as martyrs are my dearest friends." Spanish officials have described Ahmed as one of the March 11 ringleaders. Italian Interior Minister Giuseppe Pisanu said after his arrest that Ahmed was "probably among the principal authors" of the Madrid bombings, and that he was "preparing other attacks." [...]The Italian police report alleges that Ahmed used tapes, cell phones and computers as recruitment tools in his travels across Europe. He is also accused of giving lessons on falsifying documents, computers and the need for caution in using communications. Italian prosecutors cite the case as an example of cooperation among European law enforcement agencies, often seen as unable to coordinate their investigations because of differing laws and traditions.

Mr. Ahmed sounds like a real psychopath. I hope he is behind bars for a good, long time.
America doesnt believe in torture but look at these SOB's. They need to soak him in gas,hang him from a tree by his testicles and when he quits hollering set him on fire.
How about a bullet behind the f**king ear on the way to jail?
That's how the Soviets did it.
Don't feel bad, we get the same crap from our leftists, too!...........
< /sarcasm >
I would turn him over to the Berg family and play the video of him while they cut his stinking head off with a dull butter knife.
"How about a bullet behind the f**king ear on the way to jail"?
Don't forget the lathering in pig fat first.
Berg's father is an activist with ANSWER. He'd probably kiss Ahmed on the mouth.
I think they should make him stand protrate naked with a bag over his head and a leash around his neck while white women point at him and smoke cigarettes.
Oh wait, that would be torture. Forget it!
And thse are the evil scumbags that Cndy Sheehan and her minions support!
This is CNN? This story will never be broadcast on International, you can lay money on it. Too many accurate facts.
Good I hope the Italians remember their disgust at this the next time one of their Commie judges orders the arrest of CIA agents for legitimate interrogations of filth such as this guy.
Berg's dad would probably ask him for forgiveness for America's sins. Berg's dad is a slightly less masculine Cindy Sheehan.
A GOOD Bullwinkle.
"Mr. Ahmed sounds like a real psychopath."
No, just your typical Ay-Rab Jihadist.
