It turns out the mass murdering homicidal maniac did not die when the lights went out after the big bang. According to Gen. Cadwell he was alive long enough to realize what was going on and try to escape. Naturally being mortally wounded, his bid for freedom was a bit short-lived.
As he did die, he uttered one last comment. What did he say no one knows, which has opened up a whole new sub-genre for blogging pundits. Everything from 'Rosebud' to 'Some sent us up the bomb' has been seen of late. Along with the now deceased Zarqawi finding out he got 72 raisins instead of virgins.
One would think after 1300 years, the Arabic language would have firmly established the translation as meaning virgins but still the alternate translation of raisins pop up. I wonder if jihadis have fueds over that? "I say Virgins!" "Raisins!" "Virgins!" "Virgins!" "Raisins!" "Virgins!" "Fire!" *boom* - ah pronoun trouble.
Still it is fitting that a man who reveled in being brutal in front of a camera as he extoled hatred and death should have his last words lost.
