General: Saddam's Sons Killed in Raid

By SARMAD JALAL, Associated Press Writer

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Saddam Hussein (news - web sites)'s sons Odai and Qusai were killed in a six-hour firefight Tuesday when U.S. forces surrounded and then stormed a palatial villa in this northern Iraqi town, a senior American general said.

"We are certain that Odai and Qusai were killed today," said Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez at a news conference in Baghdad.

"They died in a fierce gunbattle," Sanchez added.

He told reporters that soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division were working on a tip from an Iraqi informant that the sons were present in the house.

When troops approached the building, gunmen inside opened fire with small arms. The "suspects barricaded themselves in the house" and "resisted fiercely," he said.

"... a tip from an Iraqi informant..." some lucky SOB just made a cool $30 million. Wasn't the bounty $15 million each?

Ya, but that wasn't in Candanian peso's, that was $USD.

Wish I could have had the opportunity to have partaken in the placement of the pretty barrel of a M16A2 directly up the southern exist waste port of both those "men." Just in retribution for the raping of women and other injustices they inflected upon other innocent victims. I'm against the dead penalty, it's the easy way out for those who rightfully deserve it. However, in their case, I'll make a rare exception. Wish I could of been there to see the action.

Good riddance. Wonder if the next of kin will show up to claim the bodies?
Hey-Wouldn't it be a hoot if the Iraqi information minister was the informant?
Hey Al Jazeera-I'm going to Disneyland!!!

If Baghdad Bob was the informant...I'm sure he said...." Qusai and Odai are NOT in that house in Mosul, on the ground level with 50 million dollars...and you don't see them" cute thought though.:D

I am sure Saddam is ****ed if he is alive. If he has any power left he is sure to strike with an attack on the US.
