We got him: Kurds say they caught Saddam -

We got him: Kurds say they caught Saddam - "American forces took Saddam into custody around 8.30pm local time, but sat on the news until 3pm the next day.
However, in the early hours of Sunday, a Kurdish language wire service reported explicitly: 'Saddam Hussein was captured by the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan. A special intelligence unit led by Qusrat Rasul Ali, a high-ranking member of the PUK, found Saddam Hussein in the city of Tikrit, his birthplace.

'Qusrat's team was accompanied by a group of US soldiers. Further details of the capture will emerge during the day; but the global Kurdish party is about to begin!'"

Well, wait on this for a bit, considering the amazing quality of the U.S. media reporting on such stuff (Lynch, for example), it's not surprising that this isn't on the news yet.
