From Fox News: Exclusive! Elmo, beloved star of television's Sesame Street, has apparently escaped his captors. He was found wondering aimlessly through the streets of Tikrit when he was picked up by U.S. soldiers. "He was out of it," said a sargent. "Babbling something about 'secret numbers' and the letter 't'.
Elmo was flown immediately to Ramstein, Germany where he was treated, debriefed and reunited with his long-time-companion, Cookie Monster.

It's even funnier the 2nd time! LOL!! :-)
Coming from a military family, I was happy to pass along the pictures showing the hoax.
I know that many American's had a knot in their stomach worrying if it was their husband/dad/brother/uncle/grandpa who was captured.
I find it strange that the professional media types have not seen fit to correct the story and calm the nerves of many families who still believe it is a real story.
P.S. Strangely, I was in my pajamas when I posted the pictures as today is my day off. -- Blackrain
Evil Bert has not yet been apprehended, but he is wanted for questioning.
In this rarely seen photo, we see Bert standing in the side lines a few seconds before the assassination of John F. Kennedy. We have sources who claim that Lee Harvey Oswald and Bert were friends in Korea. Though no proof directly points to Bert's involvement in this ghastly shard of history... we wouldn't be too surprised if he was.
