This will get the Islamic zealots foaming at the mouth. The information was taken from a no doubt well-informed source cited as "An Iraqi man". It didn't say anything about the man, but I think its safe to assume without any further checking into its veracity, we must take this report as gospel...ignore the reports of the personnel onsite...and demand an investigation... and then waste resources on it...and then very publicly charge everyone concerned.....and then offer no support to those involved....etc etc etc http://www.thekansascitychannel.com/news/9351294/detail.html BAGHDAD, Iraq -- An Iraqi man who was one of the first people on the scene after an airstrike that led to the death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi told Associated Press Television News that he saw American troops beating a man who had a beard like the al-Qaida leader. The witness said he saw the man lying on the ground, badly wounded but still alive. He said U.S. troops arriving on the scene wrapped the man's head in an Arab robe and began beating him. His account cannot be independently verified. The spokesman for the U.S.-led forces in Iraq says troops tried to provide medical attention after they saw that al-Zarqawi was alive but he recognized them as American troops and tried to get away. Major Gen. William Caldwell said the troops "re-secured" al-Zarqawi back onto the stretcher before he died almost immediately. The two 500-pound bombs that obliterated al-Zarqawi's Iraqi hideout cut a wide swath of destruction. There are no remaining walls in the house. Scattered among the debris of concrete blocks is a pillow with a floral pattern, sandals, a foam mattress, a cooler and part of a washing machine. A skimpy slip in a leopard skin pattern and other see-through pieces of women's clothing were also found. Three women were among those killed in the house. Insurgents Vow To Continue Fight In Wake of al-Qaida Leader's Death Meanwhile, Iraqi insurgent groups said they'll continue to fight after al-Zarqawi's death. They've sent condolences in Web messages and warned Sunnis not to cooperate with the Iraqi government. One group posted a video showing militants interrogating and then beheading three Iraqis accused of belonging to a Shiite "death squad" that killed Sunnis. The posting suggests insurgents want to show that al-Zarqawi's death has not weakened their resolve. It also marks a vicious return to form. Hostage beheadings had been less common in recent months -- perhaps as al-Zarqawi came under criticism for the slayings, observers have said.
