Former US secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld revealed Tuesday that Saddam Hussein had a $60 million bounty on his daughters' head and also targeted ex-president George W. Bush's two daughters.

"I was concerned," Rumsfeld told ABC's "Good Morning America" in his first live television interview since leaving office over four years ago.

"Of course, the president and his family had secret service protection. My family did not. And it was a somewhat awkward moment in the meeting," he added in describing a 2003 national security meeting when he was told of the plot.

Rumsfeld, who has two daughters and a son, said Bush urged him to take the threat seriously because US forces had killed Saddam's sons Uday and Qusay and his 14-year-old grandson Mustapha in July 2003.

It is a good thing that Saddam was executed.

Hmmmm- In July 2003, Saddam had already been deposed and was living in a hole in the desert. Where would he have gotten the $60 million?
