Am I the only one who remembers seeing a photo on the news of him standing up in his hole with hand raised when first caught?

Why are these things really inconsequential details that don't change day-to-day living?
It's not like I woke up one day and my dog could talk.
No, instead it's the shade of the Starbucks cup or the amount of filling in an Oreo changing.

Strangely, a Google Search for "Saddam's capture turns up only everything BUT the photo we are considering. I mean, there are pictures of the hole, soldiers in the hole, but not Saddam with his arms upraised in the hole.
And now that Ii consider it further, that photo made it appear as though he just poked up out of the hole, arms up, saying "I surrender!". Remember?
Well, in reality, what are the chances of this sort of Special Forces grab going down like that? Haha.
I think the photo could of been faked, so it is gone.
But the image in question as I recall was plastered on the front of all mainstream media. Surely it exists in CNN FOX etc. archives.
