Seems like everyone’s quickly willing to accept that it truly is Saddam they have captured. I’m a bit of a skeptic. Even my husband noted that he had one heck of a beard for only 9 months of not shaving. It is clearly an advantage politically to have us think that this is indeed Saddam – especially since he is suddenly being referred to as “the biggest terrorist on earth“ – but I will wait a bit longer. Remember that Saddam had a large number of look-a-like stand-ins that were used for public and televised/taped appearances.
add: I wasn’t the only person to wonder about this… Though the raid occurred Saturday afternoon American time, U.S. officials went to great length to keep it quiet until medical tests and DNA testing confirmed Saddam’s identity. I guess by now, they are pretty sure.
