George Bush picked from the rubble…

Here is the very fitting end for the mass murderer, Abu Musab Zarqawi:
“He mumbled something, but it was indistinguishable and it was very short,” Maj. Gen. William Caldwell, spokesman for U.S.-led forces in Iraq, said Friday of the Jordanian-born terrorist’s last words.
Iraqi police pulled him from the flattened home and placed him on a makeshift stretcher. U.S. troops arrived, saw that al-Zarqawi was conscious, and tried to provide medical treatment, the spokesman said.
“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 the U.S. military,” Caldwell told Pentagon reporters via videoconference from Baghdad.
The FBI updated their most wanted pages on Friday.
Could there have been a more fitting sendoff for this monster?
Badly hurt and covered in blood, Zarqawi was the only survivor of six who were in the house at the time of the massive blast.
In tremendous pain and deaf from the magnitude of the 500 pound bomb blast minutes earlier, he is placed on a stretcher.
But then, as Zarqawi looks up in his final struggle clinging to life, he sees US Marines… He squirms, mumbles something unintelligible and dies.
A fitting sendoff.
Democracy Project notes that there is already a winner to their MSM Zarqawi betting pool.
It was a tough competition… but the AP wins for first attack on US troops at the scene of Zarqawi’s death.
