Iraq al-Qaeda leader 'not injured'

Oh thank God, for a second I was worried about the piece of shit.

The United States military and the al-Qaeda linked group Islamic State in Iraq have both denied that the man believed to be the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq has been wounded.

Great, now the US and al-qaeda are agreeing on things.

An Iraqi interior ministry spokesman had claimed on Thursday that Abu Ayyub al-Masri had been wounded during fighting with Iraqi forces near Balad, 80km north of Baghdad.

Can't you just let us have our hopes?

"We are pretty confident that Masri was not killed or wounded. In fact, we believe that Masri was not even involved in any kind of gun battle yesterday," Lieutenant Colonel Christopher Garver, US military spokesman, said.

Damn, damn, damn, damn, damn...
