Still More on The Dead "Zarqawi", And the Tender Mercies of US Troops

First reports from the propaganda mill had it that the guy died from US bombs. . They then proudly showed pictures supposedly of his dead face :

along with the standard grainy airplane video of the bombing run.

Within hours the obvious question began to circulate - ummm, instead of a jelly like smear of constituent protoplasm, the guy looked no worse than if he was at a friday night bar fight.


Hurriedly switching gears, the military said the guy somehow survived the two 500 lb bombs.:

"Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, for more than three years the most wanted terrorist in Iraq, briefly survived the US air strike on his safe house north of Baghdad, and was still alive and speaking when Iraqi police reached the scene on Wednesday afternoon. The astonishing new details of Zarqawi's death were given yesterday in a video briefing from Baghdad by Maj-Gen Bill Caldwell, a military spokesman who the previous day had said that Zarqawi was killed instantly."

Got that? Oh, and now comes word of women's lingiere.

Then the military insisted they began cleaning him up:

QUESTION: Did anyone render medical assistance to him? Did U.S. troops try to render medical assistance?
( U.S. Army Maj. Gen. William) CALDWELL: Again, as I was reading the report, they went into the process to provide medical care to him.

The latest reports have an eyewitness claiming troops applied a slightly different method of medical assistance. Here's Yahoo:

"Also, an Iraqi man raised fresh questions, telling Associated Press Television News that he saw U.S. soldiers beating an injured man resembling al-Zarqawi until blood flowed from his nose."
The Iraqi, identified only as Mohammed, said he lives near the house where al-Zarqawi was killed. He said residents put a bearded man in an ambulance before U.S. forces arrived.

When the Americans arrived they took him out of the ambulance, they beat him on his stomach and wrapped his head with his dishdasha, then they stomped on his stomach and his chest until he died and blood came out of his nose,"

Making sure the patsy who played the Berserking Beheader couldn't blow the whistle on the psy ops? What a joke this all is. Expect even more swill from the spinmeisters.
