Too bad it was probably so "instantaneous" and he didn't have time to worry. Been nice if he would have gotten a phone call just before like "would you sign for this package" or "here's your sign!". I know when he woke up on the other side he was NOT where he thought he would be.

One of the news reports was that he was still alive when found initially and that he tried to get off the gurney and get away.

There is nothing like a 500lber to "reach out and touch someone."

Maybe he did suffer some?

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Near Death, Terrorist Leader Tried to Escape
By KIM GAMEL, AP

BAGHDAD, Iraq (June 9) - A mortally wounded Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was still alive and mumbling after American airstrikes on his hideout and tried to get off a stretcher when he became aware of U.S. troops at the scene, a top military official said Friday.

Al-Zarqawi could barely speak when Iraqi police arrived at the scene of Wednesday's attack. "He mumbled something, but it was indistinguishable and it was very short," U.S. military spokesman Maj. Gen. William Caldwell said at a news conference.

U.S. and Polish forces arrived intending to provide unspecified medical treatment, and al-Zarqawi was put on a stretcher, Caldwell said. The terrorist "attempted to sort of turn away off the stretcher, everybody reached to insert him back. ... He died a short time later from the wounds suffered during the airstrike.

"We did in fact see him alive," he said. "There was some sort of movement he had on the stretcher, and he did die a short time later."

Caldwell said the U.S. military was still compiling details of the airstrike, including the exact amount of time Zarqawi was alive afterward. He said an initial analysis of Zarqawi's body was done but he was not certain it constituted a full autopsy.

"He was conscious initially, according to the U.S. forces that physically saw him," Caldwell told Fox. "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 U.S. military." </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

NBC's Tonight Show obtained a copy of his recorded last words. Jay Leno played it back and it was translated to English, he said, "I just saved a lot of money by switching to GEICO".
