Wow, after Syria has been blamed for the death of former Lebanese Prime Ministers and also blamed for the Tel Aviv suicide attack, they now hand over Saddam's Half-Brother to Iraq?


BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) -- Iraqi officials said Sunday that Syria captured and handed over Saddam Hussein's half-brother, a most-wanted leader in the Sunni-based insurgency, ending months of Syrian denials that it was harboring fugitives from the ousted Saddam regime. Iraq authorities said Damascus acted in a gesture of goodwill.

Sabawi Ibrahim al-Hassan, who shared a mother with Saddam, was nabbed along with 29 other fugitive members of the former dictator's Baath Party in Hasakah in northeastern Syria, 30 miles from the Iraqi border, the officials said on condition of anonymity. The U.S. military in Iraq had no immediate comment. Source
