Saddam 'moved from Iraq'
Australia News ^ | Dec. 14, 2003 | AFP

Posted on 12/14/2003 9:58:58 AM PST by FairOpinion

SADDAM Hussein was no longer in Iraq, the US television network CBS reported today, citing unidentified military sources.

A CBS News correspondent in Saddam's northern Iraq hometown of Tikrit, near where Saddam was captured yesterday, said he had learned from military sources that the former Iraqi president was no longer in the country.

US Lieutenant General Ricardo Sanchez, the top US military commander in Iraq, said in Baghdad that Saddam "is currently under coalition custody and at an undisclosed location".

I think that was a smart thing to do -- to avoid having the Baathists trying to free him.

Good move. His loyalists are going to try to make him a martyr and/or perhaps free him.

Dean is outraged at our provacation.

Daschle is greatly saddened.

The French are scared about what Saddam will say.
Saddam is a coward and will spill his guts.

"Maybe they put him at sea...on a US or Iraqi-flagged ship?"

===

Quite possible. That would be very reasonable, because that would be much more secure than anywhere else, where people can sneak up on them. You can't sneak up on ship very easily.

It would be interesting if Saddam tells who in the media and weapons inspectors he was effectively blackmailing.

Aircraft carrier?

He should get equal time: stepping out of a jet, in a flight suit onto the flight deck.

But he ain't gonna' like that "Mission Accomplished, You @$$HOLE!" banner.

Unconfirmed reports have him being moved to San Francisco where the expectation is that after a few weeks there he'll be so wierded out that he will confess to anything.
