Shed No Tears Over Final Moments of Abu-Musab al-Zarqawi

(Via Memeorandum)

BAGHDAD, Iraq - U.S. officials have altered their account of the death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, saying he was alive and partly conscious after bombs destroyed his hideout, and an Iraqi man raised fresh questions Saturday about the events surrounding the end of Iraq's most-wanted militant.

The man, who lived near the scene of the bombing, claimed in an interview with AP Television News to have seen U.S. soldiers beating an injured man resembling al-Zarqawi until blood flowed from the man's nose.

If this is true, which I doubt, then I hope he got the teetotal crap beaten out of him. I hope he tried to roll off the stretcher in an attempt to escape, and they finished him off to ensure he didn't.

Can anyone make a plausible argument that restraining this thug by any and all means necessary, would not have been warranted? I, for one, am not going to shed a single tear over the final moments of a thug who's claim to fame was videotaping beheadings and planning suicide bombings he was too cowardly to carry out himself.

Whatever he got was much less than he deserved.
