Zarqawi Update

It appears that Asshat Zarqawi survived the bomb attack but later died of his wounds. Good. That means the bastard crawled out of the rubble, with burst eardrums, concussion, multiple wounds bleeding profusely and had plenty of time to suffer before Iraqi troops found him. It is good ...

Zarqawi Was Alive After Bombing: US General
June 9, 2006 8:31AM ET

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was alive and made a move to escape when U.S. troops reached the leader of al Qaeda in Iraq, mortally wounded in an American bombing raid, a U.S. general said on Friday.

The attack that killed Zarqawi and his spiritual adviser, Sheik Abdul-Rahman, yielded valuable information for several subsequent raids in Iraq, Maj. Gen. William Caldwell, the spokesman for the U.S. military in Baghdad, told Fox News.

“We were not aware yesterday that in fact, Zarqawi was alive when U.S. forces arrived on the site,” Caldwell said. Iraqi police first reached the bombed safe house in a village north of Baghdad and put Zarqawi on a stretcher, Caldwell said. U.S. ground forces then arrived and identified Zarqawi, who died shortly afterward.

“He was conscious initially, according to the U.S. forces that physically saw him. 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,” Caldwell said.

I would like to think Zarqawi’s last words were, “Wait! I’m not dead yet!” (Insert your own Monty Python joke here)



UPDATE: It appears Old ZackWad was ratted out by one of his own stooges.

Captured Zarqawi Aide Spilled the Beans
June 09, 2006 11:08 AM

(ABC NEWS) - An Iraqi customs agent secretly working with Abu Musab al-Zarqawi’s terror cell spilled the beans on the group after he was arrested, Jordanian officials tell ABC News. Ziad Khalaf Raja al-Karbouly was arrested by Jordanian intelligence forces last spring. Officials say Karbouly confessed to his role in the terror cell and provided crucial information on the names of Zarqawi commanders and locations of their safe houses.

Karbouly also admitted to his role in the kidnappings of two Moroccan embassy employees, four Iraqi National Guards and an Iraqi finance ministry official. In a videotaped confession, Karbouly said he acted on direct orders from Zarqawi. Officials say he will not be eligible for any of the $25 million reward money.

As Brian Ross reported this morning, the super-secret Task Force 145 does deserve the recognition for Wednesday’s capture. By the time two American jet fighters were called in to drop their 500 pound bombs, General George Casey was certain Zarqawi was in the house, and there was no thought of trying to capture him alive.

“Because the only means that could be applied in a timely fashion was the attack by air power and that was decided by General Casey as the right thing to do,” U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Zalmay Khalilzad told ABC News. The FBI on-line reward poster, offering a $25 million dollar bounty, today lists Zarqawi as deceased.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
