Resistance in Baghdad has completely crumbled. None of the "minders" which watched over foreign journalists' reports appeared this morning. All police and civil service in Baghdad has disappeared. It appears that Saddam's regime and those which supported it have fled or gone into hiding.
Now there is this report: http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&ncid=578&e=4&cid=578&u=/nm/20030409/ts_nm/iraq_usa_saddam_dc
Multiple U.S. intelligence sources saw Iraqi President Saddam Hussein enter a building in Baghdad on Monday but did not see him leave before the structure was destroyed in an airstrike, The Washington Times reported on Wednesday, citing U.S. government officials.
One official said some analysts believe the multiple eyewitness accounts suggest that Saddam is dead and the official described the CIA (news - web sites) as being "in a state of euphoria," the article said.
Of course, they cannot confirm anything until they find a body, or at least body parts large enough for testing.
A pity, really, if he died this way. He would not have seen it coming. I would have wanted him to have to face an angry lynch mob.
