Why were two 500lb. bombs used to kill Zarqawi?
There are things that don't make sense about the killing of Zarqawi. If they knew he was in there with only five people, why didn't they go in with a swat team and take him out? Instead of using two 500 lb. bombs to demolish the building and everybody in it, a woman and an 8 year old girl included.

This Unguarded Man Was Iraq's Most Potent Terrorist?
The US Already Misses Zarqawi
By PATRICK COCKBURN
In the days before he was tracked down and killed by US lazer-guided bombs Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was living with almost no guards and only five companions, two of whom were women and one an eight year old girl. This hardly seems like a heroic action, but brings shame to the US, a country that was once known for honer and valor. These bombs use a DU (depleted uranium) war head, which turns in to a fine radioactive dust, that has been detected from as far away as England. If the blas hadn't killed them, they would have probably died from the weird effects of inhaling radioactive material.

Berg beheading: No way, say medical experts
By Ritt Goldstein
American businessman Nicholas Berg's body was found on May 8 near a Baghdad overpass; a video of his supposed decapitation death by knife appeared on an alleged al-Qaeda-linked website (www.al-ansar.biz) on May 11. But according to what both a leading surgical authority and a noted forensic death expert separately told Asia Times Online, the video depicting the decapitation appears to have been staged.
