Terrorist leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was still alive when Iraqi police arrived at a site that was bombed by US forces, a top-level spokesman for American military forces said Friday. Brig Gen. Bill Caldwell, briefing reporters at the Defense Department from his post in Baghdad, said he learned that al-Zawqari was alive after getting briefings on the military operation that netted al-Zarqawi and several others. "He mumbled something but it was indistinguishable and it was very short," Caldwell said.
