Was Al-Zarqawi Beaten After Bombing?
CBS/AP ^ | June 10, 2006

Posted on 06/10/2006 10:32:23 AM PDT by Lacey

CBS/AP) An Iraqi man who was one of the first people on the scene of the U.S. airstrike targeting Abu Musab al-Zarqawi said he saw American troops beating a man who had a beard like the al Qaeda leader.

The witness, who lives near the house where al-Zarqawi spent his last days, said he saw the man lying on the ground near an irrigation canal. He was badly wounded but still alive, the man told Associated Press Television News.

U.S. troops arriving on the scene wrapped the man's head in an Arab robe and began beating him, said the local man, who refused to give his name or show his face to the camera. His account could not be independently verified.

You expected this, right? It's kind of like sunrise followed by sunset. Couldn't be any other way.

It was only a matter of time. Next, this will morph into torture. Then we are going to find out that the intel that led us to his safehouse was a result of torture. Just wait. Enemy sympathizers are working behind the scenes.

Hmm, does the MSM really believe any American* is going to give a fetid dingo's kidney about this? They're even more out of it than I thought if they do.

*DUmmies, Kos Kidz, etc, don't count, as they're un-American by definition...

But this story was concocted by Baghdad Bob.

I just don't give a crap. I hear that his family is demanding that his body be returned so it can be buried and worshipped for his martyrdom. I hope we cremate the remains and scatter them in a pig sty.

Looks like they all are jumping on board this one.

The MSM found another terrorists, or they just made it up themselves -- it wouldn't be the first time.

And yet he's credible enough for BS to run with the story. So much for independent verification of facts for the MSM.

" he witnessed U.S. soldiers beating a man with a beard. "

Well, unless it was a *really* heavy beard, it shouldn't have hurt very much.

Yeah. We capture ALIVE the head of al Qaeda in Iraq, seriously injured after a bombing, and we beat him to death instead of keep him alive to milk for info.

Geesh, the MSM really does think that US forces are baby-killing barbarians, and STUPID to boot.

Unfortunately, Zarqawi put his shirt on backwards yesterday morning and before he could change it the bombs hit.

The arrival of the local Iraqis found him dazed but in good spirits until they turned his head around.

Rumor has it:

Zarqawi awakened upon the stretcher. He looked to his right and saw the British Flag on the UK Special Air Services' uniforms. He looked to his left and saw the American Flag on the US Special Forces' uniforms.

Zarqawi then spoke his last words: "Not Hillarycare!"

Then he rolled off the stretcher -- away from the 'left' -- and died of his own free will.

Was Al-Zarqawi Beaten After Bombing?>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I hope he was beaten before the bombing, during the bombing and after the bombing.

No. no, wait !!!!!!! I changed my mind!

I wish he had been captured alive, and had his head cut off with a dull knife while being video taped having it done!!!!!

And why is the media repeating the statement of an identified person, whose veracity could not be independently verified?

Their only objective is to make the US troops look bad, and glorify the terrorists.

The MSM and the Dems are the best friends the terrorists can have.


"Iraq is like Vietnam, where U.S. forces never lose a battle on the ground, but where defeat can come at the hands of a loony left, a biased media and a shortsighted Congress. Whether it's an immediate withdrawal or one with a date certain, it would be a signal to the enemy to set their alarm clocks and wait us out till we cut and run."

I sure hope so!! That POS deserved worse than he got...but then upon his death I'm sure he got the shock of his "life" when he realized he was sent straight to hell and that all he would be getting was 72 rotten raisins along with the tortures of hell for all eternity!!

we beat him to death instead of keep him alive to milk for info.

That was exactly Julian Philips' contention this morning on F & F. Even when the retired military consultant told him that Zark would have given zero intel, but his hard drives, etc., were a treasure trove, Philips still contended after the interview ended that Zark would have been more valuable alive.

I certainly hope he was beaten to try and extract any information they could get from him before he died. They could do like the Arabs do and finish him but cutting his willy and nut$ off and jamming it down his throat. Had that happen to one of our guys and heard of others who died that way in Arab countries. Women were treated the same.
