Any post-capture pics of Al-Krusti? Did he look like a bum and live in a rat hole like Saddam?

Good info, but it appears to be from articles written on 3-4 Dec, not related to this recent rumor. Cheers

KUWAIT CITY : Saddam Hussein's fugitive number two, Izzat Ibrahim al-Duri, may have surrendered to US-led coalition forces in Iraq, Kuwait Television reported on Tuesday, quoting its correspondent in Baghdad.

The correspondent said on air that "the information is not confirmed and is confusing."


He said that according to the information, Duri had given himself up on Tuesday morning and that no more details were available.

An official at Kuwait Television later told AFP that the station's correspondent was quoting Iraqi sources that had told him Duri had surrendered.

Number six on the US wartime list of most wanted Iraqi officials, Duri is now the highest-ranking official of the former regime still at large.

He has a US$10 million bounty on his head.

Ousted Iraqi president Saddam Hussein was captured by US forces near his hometown of Tikrit on Saturday. - AFP

I would not lose sleep over Howard Dean. He was on C-Span last night giving a speach. Boy if you think Bush is not very articulate, this guy is ten times less articulate. In addition, there are four Democratic Senators who are going to lose their seats as well next election. You might forcast a full sweep in November 2004.

InShanghai: I searched Google news and Fox News for al-Douri and al-Duri.

He's a coward who feels betrayed by his own countrymen.

I would just have the boys wheel in the 'shredder' and leave it in plain site from his cell. Never mention it, never point it out, just leave it there for him to ponder.

DNC talking points:

Even if we do capture Izzat the attacks on our troops will continue.

Attacking terrorists just makes them madder at us.

Even if we kill all the terrorists, the rest of the world will be mad at us for not being more empathetic.

We need more internationalism.

Only a democRAT can lead us out of this quagmire.

Bush is a miserable failure, the economy stinks, the AARP is a bunch of traitors, don’t question my patriotism, tax the rich, homo marriages and let’s see, what did I forget, oh yea, death to the fetus!

I've noticed the same. I've found watching the Iraqis very interesting. Some look Arabic; others look European. My husband has a Mediterranean look to him and I tell him he looks more Iraqi than some of the Iraqis I see on TV. LOL!

U.S. Troops Kill 11 in Iraq After Ambush

By SLOBODAN LEKIC

Associated Press Writer
BAGHDAD, Iraq

[Gen Richard ]Myers cast doubt on regional news reports about the arrest of Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri, who is the highest-ranking member of Saddam's former regime still at large and is thought to be organizing anti-U.S. attacks.

"We heard the same thing. We chased that down. We are not aware that has taken place," he said.

This can't be true.

Didn't Hilliary just tell us a few weeks ago that the outcome of all this was uncertain?

Didn't she just try to tell the troops that they might, just might, be unsuccessful?

Isn't she the smartest woman in the world?

I'm so confused...NOT!

I hope there is a future episode of The Simpsons where Krusty visits Iraq on a USO tour and gets mistaken for Izzat Ibrahim al-Duri.

They already did the Krusti goes to Iraq during Gulf War 1 and causes a US ambush of Saddam to miss. Perhaps it was intentional? Evil Krusti? or his cousin Izzat?
