Even MORE Media BS

The spirit of Dan Rather will just NOT go away:

The AP has caused quite a stir today by publishing an uncorroborated account by a supposed eyewitness to the death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. The witness, identified as Mohammed, says that Americans beat and stomped Zarqawi until blood flowed from his nose and he died.

...Interesting. Of course, Reuters reported earlier tonight that the house could not be seen from any of the local houses, screened off from the roads and other dwellings by the palm groves that hid it from prying eyes.

So happens I saw a FoxNews report last night in which the FNC reporter walked about in the rubble which used to be the house in question. From the limited views available in that report, it was clear that the house WAS "isolated" and screened by a lot of trees and shrubs.

But hey, just like Haditha--take anybody's word, so long as it demeans US troops.

Al Zarqawi and his 72 Virgins
I hate Elvis references, but which Al Zarqawi do the 72 virgins get, the fat one or the thin one? Or maybe they get the bloodied, battered, blown up one....
