Breaking News
Hussein Captured
Bremer: 'We Got Him'
By Bradley Graham
Washington Post Staff Writer
Sunday, December 14, 2003; 7:13 AM



U.S.troops in a raid in Tikrit Iraq last night captured an Iraqi identified as Saddam Hussein, officials in Baghdad and Washington said early this morning.




Dara Noor Din, a member of the Iraqi Governing Council, told the Associated Press that the council was informed of the former dictatorís capture in a telephone call from L. Paul Bremer, the U.S. administrator for Iraq.

"Bremer has confirmed to the Governing Council that Saddam was captured in Tikrit," Noor Din said. "He spoke on the phone to several members, including Ahmad Chalabi."

In Baghdad, Chalabi, head of the Iraqi National Congress and another member of the Governing Council, said in a local radio interview that Hussein had been captured during a raid in the basement of a house on the outskirts of Tikrtit, about 90 miles northwest of Baghdad.

Tikrit is Husseinís hometown and U.S. forces have centered their search for him there. Chalabi said a preliminary DNA test confirmed Husseinís identity and that he expected the ousted Iraqi leader to be turned over to the governing council to be tried. "He didnít resist," Chalabi said in Arabic in the interview. "He had a lot of time to commit suicide. He didnít. I donít know why."

A U.S. military official also said Hussein was found in a raid on a house in Tikrit.

U.S. officials in Baghdad scheduled a news conference in Baghdad at 7 a.m. EST.

Continuous celebratory gunfire could be heard in Baghdad as the news of Husseinís possible arrest spread across the Iraqi capital.

The capture of Hussein has been a high priority for U.S. forces since last springís invasion, but the former Iraqi leader had proven elusive despite a $25 million reward that the Bush administration offered for information that led to him.

U.S. authorities had received numerous tips about possible hiding places for Hussein and suspect they were close to nabbing him on a few occasions. Husseinís two sons, Uday and Qusay, were found in July in a house in Tikrit and died in a firefight with U.S. troops.

From his hideouts, Hussein continued to taunt U.S. authorities, issuing periodic audio tapes urging resistance to the American-led occupation. To spearhead the search for him, the Pentagon established a group of Special Operations forces known as Task Force 121. In recent months, U.S. forces have focused on hunting down mid-level former Iraqi officers and mid-ranking onetime Baath Party operatives in hopes they could provide intelligence that might lead to Hussein.

Although frustrated by the length of time it was taking to find Hussein, U.S. commanders had repeatedly expressed confidence they would eventually find the former Iraqi leader. At the same time, they said that Husseinís capture would not by itself end the insurgency that has swelled during the past few months.

Do you buy a condom to look at it? No you buy it to fuck.
