"Zarqawi alive when U.S. forces Arrived"

This is something I had thought about yesterday, when learned he had died, did he know what hit him? Did he know who got him? I feel better knowing he saw U.S. troops before he went. He knew who got him. GREAT!!!
Zarqawi was alive after bombing - U.S. general
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was alive and made a move to escape when U.S. troops reached the leader of al Qaeda in Iraq, mortally wounded in an American bombing raid, a U.S. general said on Friday."We were not aware yesterday that in fact, Zarqawi was alive when U.S. forces arrived on the site," Maj. Gen. William Caldwell, the spokesman for the U.S. military in Baghdad, told Fox News.Iraqi police had arrived on the scene of Wednesday's bomb attack first and put Zarqawi on a stretcher, Caldwell said. The U.S. forces arrived later and identified Zarqawi, who died shortly after."He was conscious initially according to the U.S. forces that physically saw him. 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, realising it was U.S. military," Caldwell said.

If he recognized US troops I am glad. I hope he experienced terror before he died.
