    It was confirmed by the kurds. He was caught in Tikrit by the Peshmargas. US as not already confirmed this rumor, but an announcement will be made.

    he was caught saturday evening.

    Tikrit was the town of Saddam Hussein.

    I´m actually quite amazed that they did the press conference when they did it.



    What was the time when they did it? 7 a.m eastern, 4 am pacific?

    This is a good day in history.....30+ years of pain the iraq people have had to suffer under his rule. This is a day to remember for the iraq people and a peace of mind for the rest of the world.



    Don't kill him. make him suffer for a long time to come.



    Peace
