Reported here and elsewhere on Teh Interwebs. The comment that strikes me most in the former link is; “God has a plan for him.”

I assume that plan includes a winning smile.

Snopes has an entry on this, but they’re still trying to determine the authenticity of the story.

(Please note that the story as listed at has a fabbo feelgood opening and the gunman involved isn’t described as an insurgent but an ‘Iraq terrorist’…)
