I just came across this short article in which a Marine that was supposedly involved in the capture of Saddam, claims that the public story of Saddam being captured in a spider hole is a hoax, and that he was caught in a small house in near Tikrit. The marine even says that saddam tried to fight back by shooting at the Marines.

the americans wanted to show that he was being pathetic in a hole hiding, rather than letting people know he was trying to go out fighting, fox played up the whole 'ahhh he was telling everyone to fight to the last thing then he was found in a spider hole'
but yeah as much as i would like to belive it its probibly not true
