Zarqawi's kin to bury full color glossy

Al-Zarqawi's brother, Sayel al-Khalayleh, said "I and all members of our family want him (Al-Zarqawi) to be buried in his hometown of Zarqa."
They're going to have to settle for a life-size glossy - Bush's PR kit doesn't come with a body. And it's just as well . . .
[Jordan] vowed the terror leader who killed Jordanians in a triple hotel bombing would never "stain" the country's soil.
It's likely never to be an issue since the US has no body to return - only full color glossies.
The U.S. military in Baghdad had no immediate comment on where al-Zarqawi's body is or whether it would be returned to his family for burial.
If they had a body, they would have returned it by now.
There is a precedent for returning the bodies of major figures to their families in the Iraq conflict. The military returned the bodies of Saddam Hussein's two sons, Odai and Qusai, to their relatives after they were killed in a gunbattle with U.S. forces in 2003. The brothers were buried in Saddam's home region of Tikrit, north of Baghdad.
I'd like to see the administration slither its way out of this one.
