When al Qaeda makes an announcement it's not going to be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. It's going to be filled with whatever particular facts and lies they calculate will best suit their purposes; almost like some MSM outlets, in a way. Based on this story it's an even bet that Zarqawi cacked out and has been fed to camels to make sure the body doesn't surface. From Reuters:
Iraq Qaeda says Zarqawi in "good health"-Web sitesIt's beyond me how anyone who lops off hostages' heads and coordinates terrorist attacks on children can be described as "in good health".

DUBAI, May 27 (Reuters) - Iraq's al Qaeda said on Friday its leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was in good health and was back leading operations in Iraq after being wounded, according to a statement posted on the Internet.
"Our Sheikh is in good health and is running the jihad (holy war) himself and has been overseeing the details of operations up to the time this statement was prepared," a group spokesman said in a posting issued on Islamist Web sites.
