we got him!

According to the "breaking news" I'm watching now, we captured Saddam Hussein this morning. I'll post more on this event later.


And that put me in a goddamn good mood.

Paul Bremmer must read your blog--your headline was exactly how he began his press conference!

Yeah Rob, I heard the breaking news at 5Am, and I've been following it since.....Note that the sob was trying to hide in a dirt hole; hope that they re-inter him in short order!

I heard that news this morning. I am still letting the news sink in. Talk about the perfect Christmas gift for our troops!

Again, God bless the US 4th Infantry division, and those that had the courage to deploy them.

The world will remember this day.

I woke up to the same news. All I could do was jump up and down and laugh! I think I kept saying, "Really? Fantastic!!! Are they sure?" Jumping and laughing. I then ran off to check the blogs from Iraqi's, Healing Iraq and The Mesopotamian, as well as their Iraqi blogroll lists. Iraqi's are definately as happy as we are!
