"The captive has been talkative and is being cooperative," General Sanchez
Coalition troops captured two other Iraqis in the raid and seized two AK-47
assault rifles, a pistol and $750,000 in $100 bills, General Sanchez said.
He described Mr. Hussein as "tired" and "a man resigned."
The military targeted Mr. Hussein's hideout using information gleaned from
interrogations of people with familial and tribal ties to Mr. Hussein,
General Odierno said in a news conference.
"Over the last 10 days or so we brought in about 5 to 10 members of these
families," the general said. "Finally we got the ultimate information from
one of these individuals."
General Odierno said it appeared that Mr. Hussein had not been in that
particular hiding place for a long time and theorized that the former Iraqi
leader had "20 to 30" similar safe houses scattered around the country.
Abdel Abdel-Mahdi, a senior official of a Shiite Muslim political party who
visited Mr. Hussein in captivity, said the prisoner was "unrepentant and
defiant." He added: "When we told him, `If you go to the streets now, you
will see the people celebrating,' he answered, `Those are mobs.' When we
told him about the mass graves, he replied, `Those are thieves.' "
just a couple of q's;
was he "talkative & cooperative" or "unrepentant & defiant"?
how much money did he really have when captured?
do you have to pay reward for info given under torture?
