BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- An al Qaeda-linked Web site posted video Tuesday of an American man in Iraq speaking briefly before being beheaded by his masked captors.

His captors said the United States refused to exchange him for prisoners in the Abu Ghraib prison. A senior U.S. official told CNN he does not believe that to be true.

The captors also issued a direct statement to President Bush: "The worst is coming and, God willing, the tough days are still to come. You and your soldiers will regret the day that you touched the ground of Iraq."

In the video, a man identifies himself as Nicholas Berg, 26, of Pennsylvania and is shown sitting in an orange jumpsuit in front of five armed, hooded men.

The one standing directly behind Berg reads a statement identifying himself, and then Berg is pushed to the floor.

Berg is heard screaming as his throat is cut. One of the captors then holds up his severed head.

Warning;
anyone that searches for the video online, it's very graphic. I know that sounds obvious, but believe me it's extremely graphic. I'm at a lost of words for a reaction to this story.
