US reports Zarqawi wounded in leg (number 3 or 4)
Col. Steve Jones, command surgeon for Multinational Forces, said DNA tests done by the FBI positively identified al-Zarqawi.Exactly how many legs does this guy have???
The cause of death was listed as "primary blast injury of the lung," with blast waves from the two bombs causing bruising and bleeding of the organs. Al-Zarqawi suffered multiple bruises, scratches and deep head wounds, and Jones found no evidence he had been beaten or shot. X-rays also showed a fracture of his right lower leg.
According to U.S. intelligence, Zarqawi had a leg amputated in Baghdad. Except that most sources now believe Zarqawi is equipped with two working legs. As Newsweek colorfully put in in early 2004, "The stark fact is that we don’t even know for sure how many legs Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi has, let alone whether the Jordanian terrorist, purportedly tied to al Qaeda, is really behind the latest outrages in Iraq."That's not all.
Al-Zarqawi was overweight, a medical examiner said, but Caldwell declined to provide other personal characteristics.We're supposed to believe that Zarqawi, who's been consistently on the run for the past three years, managed to gain an inordinate amount of weight. Come on.
And why won't they provide further personal characteristics? Got something to hide?
He also would not say whether any drugs were found in the militant's body; officials said toxicology results would be released later.Right after November elections.
