Saddam captured?
    #2176215 - 12/14/03 07:06 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

If true  :smile2:


Edit: Now supposedly confirmed by DNA evidence.



Saddam Hussein Believed Captured in Iraq

Sunday, December 14, 2003

BAGHDAD, Iraq ? Saddam Hussein (search), the former Iraqi dictator and most-wanted figure by the U.S.-led coalition, has been captured in Iraq, U.S. officials said Sunday.

"It certainly looks good," one senior U.S. official in Washington said, cautioning more scientific testing, possibly DNA, was being done early Sunday morning to try to confirm the identity.

Prime Minister Tony Blair (search) seemed to confirm the capture by welcoming the news, his spokesman said Sunday, adding that it "removes the shadow" of the former dictator's possible return from Iraq.

In Baghdad, the U.S.-led occupation notified reporters that a "very important" announcement will be made at a news conference scheduled for 7 a.m. EST but did not give details.

A senior U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the captured man's appearance did not immediately look like Saddam, but additional efforts to ascertain his identity indicated he was the former leader.

Multiple high-level sources told Fox News they were almost certain that the former Iraqi leader was captured in a raid designed to net him in his hometown of Tikrit. 

The officials said the former leader, who during his rule slept in lush palaces while many ordinary Iraqis lived in poverty, was found "cowering" in a basement in a home raided by coalition soldiers. The sources said the person believed to be Saddam had millions of U.S. dollars in his possession, and that tests were being conducted to confirm his identity.

News of the potential capture made its way around Iraq like wildfire, with Iraqis in Tikrit and the capital city, Baghdad, celebrating the news by firing guns into the air.

Earlier, a member of the U.S.-appointed Governing Council (search) said Saddam had been captured alive in Tikrit.

Council member Dara Noor al-Din told The Associated Press that the council was informed of the former dictator's capture in a telephone call from L. Paul Bremer, the U.S. administrator for Iraq.

"Bremer has confirmed to the Governing Council that Saddam was captured in Tikrit," Noor al-Din said. "He spoke on the phone to several members, including Ahmad Chalabi."

Chalabi is a leading member of the council who has close links to the Bush administration.

A council spokesman, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed that Bremer had relayed news of Saddam's capture to the council. A council delegation planned to visit Saddam in captivity later Sunday, the spokesman said.

Another Governing Council member, Jalal Talabani, was earlier quoted by Iran's official news agency, IRNA, as saying Saddam had been captured in Tikrit.

Talabani told IRNA that Saddam's detention will bring stability to Iraq.

"With the arrest of Saddam, the source financing terrorists has been destroyed and terrorist attacks will come to an end. Now we can establish a durable stability and security in Iraq," Talabani was quoted as saying.

In Baghdad, residents fired small arms in the air in celebration, and gunfire echoed in neighborhoods across the city. Earlier in the day, rumors of the capture sent people streaming into the streets of Kirkuk, a northern Iraqi city, firing guns in the air in celebration.

"We are celebrating like it's a wedding," said Kirkuk resident Mustapha Sheriff. "We are finally rid of that criminal."

"This is the joy of a lifetime," said Ali Al-Bashiri, another resident. "I am speaking on behalf of all the people that suffered under his rule."

Yea you did.. you evil bastard :smirk:

That guy who just gave the opening speech for the baghdad press conf. who opened with, "Ladies and gentlemen, We got 'im!" was disappointing.  He was lookin' down at his notes every second - literally after every four words... I just wish people would speak their thoughts, not the writings of writers :crazy:

Maybe he was tired or just not much of a public speaker..... but you're right. Strictly reading from notes is not an impressive way to give a speech.

My apologies. It wasn't my intent to steal your thunder.  :blush:

I heard the news, scanned the thread titles and only then made my post.

Should you change the title to an exclamation mark?

Perhaps it is unnecessary.  Thanks to both of you guys! :heart:

I am floating on cloud nine. :smile:

I deliberately used a question mark as there has been plenty of "inaccurate" reports from Iraq. While they claim DNA proves it (and I believe it) I'll leave the question mark alone.  :wink:

Yeah, we screwed up.  This should have been staged late October to insure Bush's landslide reelection.

Damn it.  Foiled again.  :frown:

Didn't you see that episode of The Simpsons where it was going to take many weeks to get the DNA results but after Wiggum paid the scientist off with a carton of Laramie cigarettes, it only took a few seconds? :lol:
