Saddam dead?

It seems that some are claiming we got Saddam yesterday. I certainly hope they're right, but that doesn't sound too likely based on what I read in "Saddam's Bombmaker", which I've linked several times before. I've loaned it out, so I'll have to go by memory.

As I recall, Saddam and an entourage showed up at a random household. The owner let them all in and offered to make tea, but a member of the entourage insisted on making it instead. The "host" had some, then woke up the next day to find the guests gone and an envelope of cash left behind.

If that is going on, it will be incredibly difficult to find Saddam unless you're an Iraqi. But I'm betting that someone will drop a dime on him before it's over.
