Al-Zarqawi Dead?

That seems to be the rumor in the Arab press:

A fitting end, if true (though it might actually be better for him to live a long time with nails and ball bearings buried in every pore). Let's hope it's true, and that they can find DNA evidence to verify, and if it is, good riddance to rotten rubbish.

Interesting additional report that Al-Zarqawi's own tribe has disowned him "until doomsday".

If it was Zarqawi, I certainly hope he was conscious for a bit. At least long enough to recognize the foreshadowing of his eternal future.

He's been reported dead, captured or mortally injured so many times that it's tough to credit a general rumor. There is also speculation that Zarqawi is not actually a real person, but a sort of mythic combination of several commanders. Whatever he is, after his little boo-boo in Jordan, I'm sure that he's gone underground to let the heat disapate a bit.
