Huh???? Two 500lb bombs and he survived- however short?????
Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was clinging to life when Iraqi and, later, American forces arrived at the scene of the bombing that killed him, a US general said yesterday, revising his earlier account of the Al Qaeda leader's death.
Meanwhile, other circumstances surrounding the killing remained cloudy, including why US forces did not move in immediately after the bombing to see whether Zarqawi had survived. Iraqi police were the first to arrive.
Zarqawi was lying on a stretcher at the scene of the bombing, in a village about 35 miles north of Baghdad, when US forces arrived and tentatively identified him as the wanted insurgent leader Wednesday evening. He mumbled something indistinguishable and tried to move but was restrained, according to Major General William Caldwell, a US military spokesman in Baghdad.
Now, dont reckon he will be captured either...especially as he is the 'scapegoat'. Isnt it funny that he still hasnt been caught????
