Rep. Pitts statement on murder of Nicholas Berg
Washington-Congressman Joe Pitts (R, PA-16) today released the following statement on the murder of West Whiteland Township native Nicholas Berg in Iraq.
"Although Nick Berg is not my constituent, I want to extend my deepest condolences to his family. Nick was a brave young man who put his life on the line to build a free and stable Iraq. His murder comes from the same dark place as the attacks of September 11. It should not shake us; it should strengthen our resolve to defeat a terrible enemy who hates freedom and uses any excuse to brutally murder civilians," said Congressman Pitts.
