DailyTelegraph.new.com.au "This photograph of Saddam Hussein in
the moment of his capture was e-mailed to me by a friend in special forces who was damn proud of what his former colleagues in Iraq had accomplished
when they pulled the dictator out of his hole," Mr Weisman said. "I thought the photo deserved wide dissemination."
The Daily Telegraph is publishing a new picture of Saddam's capture, showing his apparent cowering when pulled from his hole.
If the authenticity of the picture is proved, it would have been taken by
a member of the 600-strong force that captured Saddam at a farmhouse near Tikrit. Although official army photographers were on hand to record the
moment, the picture may have been snapped by a soldier, many of whom were known to carry small cameras while on patrol.
