I had a long conversation with a coworker on this today.
Is Saddam and co likely dead? IMHO, yes. I think they were killed, or at least very seriously injured during the initial airstrike.
(By the way they read a transcript on NPR this morning, reportedly a narrative from the actual SpecOp Team leader that illuminated the top of the
leadership bunker with a laser designator for the strike, after visually observing Saddam and at least one son enter the facility. I cant find that
transcript anywhere, if anyone knows where to find it, please let me know).
When you consider that since that strike, there has been no truly credible appearances of Saddam (some very bad body doubles, and some tapes truly of
him, but likely taped earlier, and having no corroborating evidence that they were recent), it certainly looks like he is no longer with us.
Can we prove he is dead? Unless we find his body and confirm it through DNA testing, it wouldnt surprise me if Saddam exists the world in the midst of
the same mystery as that of Hitler. (maybe that says something about his regime?)
