Alert!

There are very strong indications that Eizat Aldori the deputy of Saddam has been arrested near Tikrit!

After his arrest by the Iraqi Police and the US forces, 150 members of his guards tried to free him but most of them either killed or escaped.

More details later!

Congratulations for the victims of Abo-Al-Thaleg!

Hmmm... could the police recruit bombing in Kirkuk have been in retaliation for getting Al-Douri? Anxiously awaiting any updates/confirmation...

is this for real? Loftus has been saying for months that he may have been hiding in Saudi Arabia.

How come Aldori had 150 guards and Saddam apparantly had none?

This is the red haired guy, correct? If so, he may be the last face card in the deck. Hopefully another scratch out for the "Most Wanted" chart in President Bush's office desk.

'How come Aldori had 150 guards and Saddam apparantly had none?'

Apparently because he was the next in line, not Saddam's sons. Interesting. Would make sense. Saddam didn't have the protection because every placet the coalition suspected him of hiding had a funny habit of spontaneously combusting. Well as spontaneous as a 2,000 precicion guided missile can provide.

We will know soon enough if it's him. Wouldn't be surprised if a huge act of violence on par with slaughter in Russin occurred in order to secure his release. Maybe worse.

Speaking of the deck of cards, anyone know which group currently holds the best hand? In other words, which batallion/platoon,division has captured the best poker hand based on the card rankings of the people they've captured??

This might be the big news that would finish off the Kerry campaign I had been seeing in cryptic messages. This would be the fellow with the most operational knowledge of what weapons programs and plans agains the west existed. Saddam was a figurehead, like OBL.

Bodansky insists that some of the WMDs are still in iraq, in underground bunkers we have not been able to find. its impossible to search an entire country for such a facility.

New Leads In Hunt For Saddam's Fugitive Deputy: Police
AFP: 9/4/2004

TIKRIT, Iraq, Sept 4 (AFP) - US forces have stepped up their hunt for Saddam Hussein's deputy, Izzat Ibrahim al-Duri, the most senior member of the ousted regime still at large, Iraqi police said Saturday.

The US military said they were always on the lookout for the former number two, who has a 10 million dollar US bounty on his head, but insisted the overnight operation targeted militants who had fired mortars on a US base.

"US tanks, helicopters and planes have been looking for Izzat Ibrahim al-Duri since last night," police Lieutenant Mohammed Jassem told AFP.

He said the search had focused on neighbourhoods east of Saddam's hometown of Tikrit following information Ibrahim recently had a blood transfusion in a local clinic.

Witnesses added that US troops patrolling the town had been displaying pictures of Ibrahim in different guises, wearing in turn his military uniform, traditional Arab clothes... and a Stetson hat.

He is ranked number six in the deck of cards of most wanted officials issued after last year's US-led invasion.

The US military placed the massive bounty on his head last year, accusing him of financing insurgent groups.

"We're looking for all sorts of people," said Major Neal O'Brien, a spokesman for the US military in Tikrit, stressing that operations conducted in the past 24 hours had led only to the capture of three Iraqis suspected of carrying out mortar attacks.

While I'll agree it is possible that perhaps we haven't found certain bunkers....I think it is doubtful by this time -

But the bigger point is....Saddam had the capabilities to produce WMD - and much of the bio and Chemical stuff...has a fairly short-shelf life.....therefore just having the capabilities was to much of a threat for us to allow - It is that simple -

Removing Saddam has made the world safer.

No - I agree that it is "possible" ...my point is....I think someone would have "talked" by now...and alerted us to these "small bunkers" - I mean we have captured about 45 + of the 55 most wanted in Iraq - (and none of them talk??...I find that odd) -

But the bigger point is...Saddam had the capabilities to produce WMD - After 9-11 we could no longer allow Saddam to remain a threat via WMD capabilities and his ties to supporting terrorism - We had to act and GWB did the right thing! - Period.

Because of our action freedom and self-worth are taking hold in Iraq - Both of these have been denied to the citizens of the Middle East for far to long -
