Whatever happened to Bagdad Bob? Did he get off the hook? So to speak. I guess lying to the press is no crime, heck they lie to us. If he was in Sadaam’s ruling party I would imagine he committed heinous crimes.

......Whatever happened to Bagdad Bob?....

He is alive and well, writing copy for Gibbs’ daily briefings

He is now living in the United Arab Emirates with his family.

When asked where he had got his information he replied, “authentic sources—many authentic sources”. He pointed out that he “was a professional, doing his job”.

He is perhaps best remembered for his his final broadcast in which he agitatedly declared that US troops were defeated and committing mass suicide at the gates of Baghdad, and that there were “no US tanks in Baghdad”, all while al-Sahhaf’s camera clearly showed several US tanks maneuvering through the city streets behind him less than a mile from his position.

He did. He turned himself in back when the deck of cards was issued, and the US military told him he wasn't on any "Wanted" lists.

Last I heard, he was hosting a talk show somewhere in the UAE.
