US backs down on claim Saddam’s bodyguard caught
Now it appears that Saddam’s bodyguard, captured today, may not actually be Saddam’s bodyguard. But there is this:
The suspected regime loyalists included a possible brigadier general, Major Troy Smith of the Fourth Infantry Division (4ID) said, which is scouring Saddam’s old hunting grounds for holdouts of the defeated Baath party.
That may mean that we aren’t as close to the Big ‘S’ as we hoped, but a brigadier general? If that’s the bad news, I’ll be just fine.
