    lol... what on earth are you talking about dude? He's dead! They don't even show the rest of his body, and a great deal of people killed by bombs are killed by the blast rather than the shrapnel.

    Maybe you should read the articles not just the headlines....(unless you like looking foolish)

    BAGHDAD, Iraq - A mortally wounded Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was still alive and mumbling after American airstrikes on his hideout and tried to get off a stretcher when he became aware of U.S. troops at the scene, a top military official said Friday.

    Also, U.S. troops conducted 39 raids late Thursday and early Friday based on information gleaned from searches in the hours after the al-Qaida leader's death. Fearing that insurgents will seek revenge, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki imposed driving bans in Baghdad and restive Diyala province, where the terrorist was killed.

    Al-Zarqawi could barely speak when Iraqi police arrived at the scene of Wednesday's attack.

    "He mumbled something, but it was indistinguishable and it was very short," U.S. military spokesman Maj. Gen. William Caldwell said at a news conference.

    U.S. and Polish forces arrived intending to provide unspecified medical treatment, and al-Zarqawi was put on a stretcher, Caldwell said. The terrorist "attempted to sort of turn away off the stretcher, everybody reached to insert him back. ... He died a short time later from the wounds suffered during the airstrike.

    "We did in fact see him alive," he said. "There was some sort of movement he had on the stretcher, and he did die a short time later."

    Caldwell said the U.S. military was still compiling details of the airstrike, including the exact amount of time Zarqawi was alive afterward. He said an initial analysis of Zarqawi's body was done but he was not certain it constituted a full autopsy.

    In an interview earlier Friday with Fox News, Caldwell was more descriptive of Zarqawi's actions before he died.

    "He was conscious initially, according to the U.S. forces that physically saw him," Caldwell told Fox. "He obviously had some kind of visual recognition of who they were because he attempted to roll off the stretcher, as I am told, and get away, realizing it was U.S. military."

    At the news conference, the spokesman also provided a revised death toll from the attack.

    Gen. George Casey, the top U.S. commander in
    Iraq, had said four people, including a woman and a child, were killed with al-Zarqawi and Abu Abdul-Rahman al-Iraqi, the terrorist's spiritual consultant.

    Caldwell said it now appears there was no child among those killed. He cautioned that some facts were still being sorted out but said that three women and three men, including al-Zarqawi, were killed.

    Pentagon officials have refused to say whether U.S. special operations forces participated in the al-Zarqawi operation Wednesday, but a comment Friday by
    President Bush suggested that some of the military's most secretive units may have been involved on the ground.

    Speaking to reporters, Bush mentioned that among the senior officers he called to offer congratulations for killing Zarqawi was Army Lt. Gen. Stanley McChrystal, commander of Joint Special Operations Command, whose forces include the Army's clandestine counterterrorism unit, Delta Force.

    Caldwell also said U.S. forces have conducted many raids over the past two days based on intelligence gathered from the scene of Zarqawi's killing.

    A targeted individual was killed and at least 25 people were captured, he said. One raid discovered small arms, ammunition and other items hidden beneath the floor of a building in the Baghdad area.

    Speaking to the British Broadcasting Corp., the spokesman said troops carried out 39 raids overnight in which troops "picked up things like memory sticks, some hard drives" that would allow American forces to begin dismantling al-Zarqawi's al-Qaida in Iraq.

    Those raids were based on 17 simultaneous raids U.S. troops staged Wednesday near Baqouba, the capital of Diyala province. The region is in the heartland of the Sunni Arab-led insurgency and has seen a recent rise in sectarian violence. Baqouba is 35 miles northeast of Baghdad.

    He said the latest information was helping U.S. forces unravel the source of al-Qaida's weapons and financing.

    As Iraqi and U.S. leaders cautioned that al-Zarqawi's death was not likely to end the insurgency, Caldwell said another foreign-born militant was poised to take over the terror network's operations.

    He said Egyptian-born Abu al-Masri would likely take the reins of al-Qaida in Iraq. He said al-Masri trained in
    Afghanistan and arrived in Iraq in 2002 to establish an al-Qaida cell.

    The U.S. military did not further identify al-Masri and his real identity could not immediately be determined. But the Central Command has listed an Abu Ayyub al-Masri as among its most wanted al-Zarqawi associates and placed a $50,000 bounty on his head.

    Al-Masri, whose name is an obvious alias meaning "father of the Egyptian," is believed to be an expert at constructing roadside bombs, the leading cause of U.S. military casualties in Iraq.

    The midday driving ban in Baghdad lasted four hours. All traffic was banned in Diyala from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. for three days starting Friday.

    The Baghdad ban fell when most Iraqis attend Friday prayers. Bombers have previously targeted Shiite mosques with suicide attackers and mortars hidden in vehicles.

    The bans aim "to protect mosques and prayers from any possible terrorist attacks, especially car bombs, in the wake off yesterday's event," an Iraqi government official said, referring to al-Zarqawi's death. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to media.

    Al-Zarqawi, who had a $25 million bounty on his head, was killed at after an intense two-week hunt that U.S. officials said first led to his spiritual adviser and then to him.

    The U.S. military had displayed images of the battered face of al-Zarqawi and reported that he was identified by fingerprints, tattoos and scars. But Caldwell said Friday that authorities made a visual identification of al-Zarqawi at the site of the airstrike.

    Biological samples from his body were delivered to an
    FBI crime laboratory in Virginia for DNA testing. Results were expected in three days.

    Violence was unabated Thursday and Friday:

    _Gunmen kidnapped Muthanna al-Badri, director general of state company for oil projects, or SCOP, while he drove Thursday in his predominantly Sunni Arab neighborhood of Baghdad, ministry spokesman Assem Jihad said Friday.

    _A fire fight Friday west of Baqouba killed five civilians and wounded three, and demolished five houses, according to regional authorities.

    _The torso of a man wearing a military uniform was found floating in a river Friday morning near Kut, 100 miles southeast of Baghdad, a morgue official said.

    _Police found five unidentified bodies late Thursday of men who had been shot in the head in eastern Baghdad.

    _Gunmen opened fire on Friday's funeral procession for the brother of the governor of the northern city of Mosul. Zuhair Kashmola was killed by gunmen on Thursday.

    What in the hell is wrong with you? Can you not at least give us five minutes to revel in victory before you start with the conspiracy stuff? Dear God, does it never end? Just because someone wrote it somewhere on the net, that makes it true? So then you must believe that a Jewish, transexual, communist Bigfoot in a wheelchair was dropped off by aliens and killed John Lennon because the citizens of Pluto were pissed about the lyrics to "Yellow Submarine"?!?!? What the hell??????????

    As a matter of fact, it didn't. Elvis and Bigfoot had a plot with aliens to make us all think it did though. It was a plot to distract us from locating the Lockness monster, who knew exactly where Jimmy Hoffa is on that farm.

    We didn't walk on the moon. It was all filmed in a desert (Area 51) late one night after dark. The purpose was to justify dumping more money into the space program at a time when the Amercian people were calling for the money to be diverted in other directions. They made several errors filming it. The most noticable was there is no wind on the moon, yet the American flag was flying in the wind.

    Huh? What's going on in here?

    Did somebody say something stupid? It was stupid wasn't it? Not malicious. I'm sure we can forgive that.

    Move along now folks.
