    ...The night before his arrest, Mahmud, who once shuttled among presidential palaces, had slept on the floor in the living room. He was reduced to eating lumpy yogurt to calm his stomach, and complained of asthma, Awad said. "He just gave up when the Americans came," she added. U.S. military officers said that Mahmud, the fourth most sought member of the former government after Hussein and his two sons, appeared stressed and alone, reduced to asking favors of locals, such as a bed for the night. He did not have his own transportation, money or weapons "of any significance," according...

Mahmud was number four on the U.S. military's target list behind Saddam and sons Qusay and Uday. But some analysts say his place in the related U.S. "most...
