Eighth man from Adam, an artificer of metals

Paul Johnson, we will treat him like the Americans treated the Iraqis in Abu Ghraib.

So does that mean they won't saw his head off like Nick Berg? Perhaps it means that they'll have him seen and have his health monitored by a doctor. Perhaps it means they will feed him very well and it will be a culturally sensitive diet. What it means is that the terrorists saw America's reaction to the pictures of the Abu Ghraib abuses (since there was jack reaction to the initial reports and investigation) and decided to use it to their advantage.

Dunno if it'll work though. Sure, some leftists will point out the statement and use it in their anti-Iraqi war rhetoric, but I'm betting that most people will realize what's being done, and that anyone abused Abu Ghraib style is way better off than anyone abused Islamist style.
