This would be incredible. I would say that no other country would ever doubt what we are capable of if this turned out to be true. Not that they should anyway but man things have been quiet as it is from NK and Iran the past few days.

There are also reports that at least one of his sons was with him at the time. Saddams ex wife says the man on the tape was not him. She even took a lie detector test.

If they pulled this off on the first shot, we might as well cancel the 2004 Presidential election. Bush will roll.

B-117? That's F-117, even though it probably SHOULD be B-117.

Intelligence Officials Believe Saddam Was in Compound When Struck

WASHINGTON — U.S. intelligence believes Saddam Hussein and possibly two of his sons were present inside a suburban Baghdad compound when it was struck by U.S. missiles and bombs and that medical attention was summoned afterward, government officials said Thursday night. ...

If true then it is wise of the Administration to keep the lid on this or at least "in doubt" until we can get our forces arrayed in Iraq.

Well ... logic would say it's fairly likely because not one Iraqi airplane has been launched against our forces.

And ... we have had only limited resistance pockets.

So, the logic says there is nobody making any military decisions. If that's so, then the chances are good that Saddam and possibly both of his sons have been killed or severely wounded.

You have got to believe we had special forces on the ground very close to the bunker when it was struck. They would eavesdropped in on all the activity following the attack. They ought to have a pretty good idea whether Saddam was there.

If I were Saddam, I would want the US military to think I was dead too! He may not even be in the country. He has billions and if he's a tenth as resourceful as OBL, he's relaxing comfortably on a beach somewhere with his concubines waiting at his beacon call.

Yep. We still need more of his Republican guard to surrender. We don't have them all yet.
It looks like Bush is going to be a HUGE success.
Now, a Bin Ladin catch would make him absolutely historical!

Late night information: Linda Vester reported this first, then Brett Baer at the Pentagon has filled in the gaps. I don't know if other networks are covering this or not.

As I understood it reported.....Saddam's mistress told US Military that medical personnel were called to the leadership site that was bombed last night. She's on again, reporting that he was definitely at that place, but she's still not saying for certain that he was killed or wounded. Both Brett and her have said that this particular mistress has given reliable information in the past.

Welcome back Linda! (She had a baby). Her extensive background in the middle east will give even more oomph to FOX coverage. Got to say, FOX imbedded reporters are doing a fantastic job. Man oh man, it's fabulous to know which side reporters are on, and these guys have made themselves a part of their units. My husband is very impressed with the respect they show to "their" unit commanders.

CBS: 'Senior Officials' Think Saddam May Not Have Survived

Thu Mar 20 2003 10:33:00 ET

"I am being told by several senior officials not to take that taped speech Saddam gave last night as proof that he survived the attack," CBS NEWS reporter David Martin said on air.

"They say the evidence that put him in the bunker last night was very reliable, and they are confident that the cruise missiles and bunker-busting bombs that were fired at that bunker last night hit the target. So now, intelligence experts are studying the tape to determine if it is really Saddam, or a body double which he is known to use from time to time. And they are running a computerized voice analysis, comparing that speech with known recordings of Saddam's voice. But that's a process that takes awhile. So we may not have a quick answer."

"There is considerable belief in this government that they may, in fact, have gotten Saddam."

Well that is certainly what the PLO does. Hit and wait for the medics and then hit the medics. Not sure that we would want to emulate that.

If he's dead, surely his inner circle knows it. Why would they continue to fight, as opposed to surrendering ?

Hmmmmm.

OK. GLAD FOR THAT!

SO THE ODDS ARE HE'S DEAD, IT SEEMS TO ME.

Even if it was a bunker--unless it was several hundred feet deep which it evidently was not--30-40 times would sort of crush sufficient layers to get to the bottom of it, right?

I can't help but wonder if the 27 million paid to the guy who ratted out the AQ Sheik got somone's attention in Iraq. If we indeed did get him 25 million would be well spent as a reward...
