    Saddam Hussein arrested in Iraq


    Video footage of Saddam receiving a medical check was shown
    Ousted Iraqi President Saddam Hussein has been captured by US forces, says the US chief administrator in Iraq.
    "Ladies and gentlemen, we got him," Paul Bremer said at a news conference in the capital, Baghdad, prompting loud cheers from Iraqis in the audience.

    The former leader was found hiding in a cellar in a town about 30 kilometres south of his ancestral hometown Tikrit.

    British Prime Minister Tony Blair has welcomed the news, saying it "removes the shadow" hanging over Iraq.

    Saddam Hussein is the most wanted man on the list issued by US authorities but has not been seen since Baghdad fell to US forces in April.

    Video footage apparently showing a dishevelled-looking Saddam in custody with a long black beard was shown at the press conference.

    Intensive search

    A spokeswoman for US-led coalition forces in Baghdad said that a "very important" announcement would be made at a news conference at 1200 GMT but would not give further details.

    Iraqi Governing Council head Abdel-Aziz al-Hakim was quoted as saying that a DNA test had proved the man in custody was Saddam Hussein.


    People were seen celebrating in the streets of Baghdad
    The news comes as violence continued in Iraq, with at least 17 people killed and 30 wounded after a powerful car bomb exploded at an Iraqi police station in Khalidiyah, about 35 miles (60 km) west of Baghdad.

    US officials say it may have been a suicide attack.

    Saddam Hussein has been the object of intensive searches by US-led forces in Iraq but previous attempts to locate him have proved unsuccessful.

    I'm very happy for the Iraqi people, life is going to be safer now... now we can start a new beginning

    Baghdad resident Yehya Hassan
    People have started celebrating the possible capture of their former president in the streets of Baghdad and the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk by honking their horns and firing into the air.

    The former Iraqi leader was last seen in television footage shot in April at a Baghdad market just before the city fell to US forces in the recent Iraq conflict.

    US authorities have offered a $25m reward for information leading to his capture.

    On 22 July his sons, Uday and Qusay, were killed in a raid by US forces in the northern city of Mosul.

    Intelligence

    In October, US officials said they had intelligence indicating Saddam Hussein was hiding in Tikrit.

    They said he seemed to be moving around various safe houses with the aid of family members, often in disguise.

    Saddam Hussein was born in Tikrit and has a tight network of family and clan ties which permeated all of the regime's main military, security and political institutions while he was in power.

    Coalition authorities have said that the former Iraqi president, if captured, could be tried at a war crimes tribunal, with Iraqi judges presiding and international legal experts acting as advisers.

    Saddam deserves a slow and painful death and or if he goes on trial. Hopefully the Arab world will topple.

    Excuse me? He deserves a slow and painful death for opposing Isael and fighting to save his country from the conquering Americans?

    He's a little confused. Probably very young.

    I wonder when the Jewnited States will stop with their brainwashing propaganda. They are currently really reminding me of Orwell's 1984.

    In the CNN and BBC reports on TV, every other word used to describe Saddam was: Monster, or Animal, Criminal etc.

    USA is on a brainwashing spree, it's a dictatorship over the entire world, and no matter what attrocities Saddam may have done, the USA didn't attack Iraq because of war crimes, or secret weapons, or Al-Qaeda, USA invaded Iraq because of oil and because Iraq is a threat to US and Israeli interests in the middle east.

    Doesn't really matter. If the USA convinces the world ( successfully ) that it's Saddam, then it's Saddam.

    If the USA convinces the world that Serbs are animals, then the Serbs will be animals and Albanians will be the victims.

    If the USA convinces that in the conflict between Greece and Turkey that Greeks are the uncivilized bad guys, everyone will believe them, they can do whatever they want to.

    Damn!! Others beat me to it! Here's the CNN link

    While it is certainly true the war with Iraq had little to do with "freeing" Iraq and everything to do with a combination of oil and Israeli security interest (and like most Americans at this site, I think we should have not have been there) I am a bit loath to say much good about Saddam. The guy was just another megalomaniac dictator; the fact that Stalin was his hero says everything all anyone needs to know about the fellow. (Note: the rad-lib types true to form could not help but label the j-peg photo below "sadcap"; gotta get their jab in at Saddam; many amongst the American journalist are certainly happy at this capture.)

    Turman found a copy of The Graduate, and thought highly enough of the story that he made a movie he considered to be 90-percent faithful to the book.

    But Turman and director Mike Nichols made one key adaptation, changing the Braddocks from WASP-y blonde characters into a dark-haired, more ethnic-looking family.
