Saddam Missed by Miles: "...so says the former Iraqi (Dis-)Information Minister. From The Australian :
US bombing did not target the places where Saddam Hussein was sheltering during the Iraq war, according to the former Iraqi information minister Mohammad Said as-Sahhaf.
The former Baath official said the ousted president made his first wartime speech from a house close to his main palace.
" Only once did the bombing target an area 400 to 500 metres away " from where Saddam had been staying, "in a simple villa at the edge of the Zahra neighborhood" of Baghdad, Sahhaf told Abu Dhabi Television.
At one point, Saddam stayed for " five consecutive days in al-Amirat street of the Mansur neighborhood ," but it was never hit by the US bombers, Sahhaf told the channel in the United Arab Emirates capital of Abu Dhabi in the second of a series of interviews to be aired over several weeks.
Sahhaf said Saddam, who wrote his speeches himself since " some time in the 1980s ," had made his first televised address of the war on March 20, hours after a pre-dawn US attack aimed at killing him, from a house adjacent to the main presidential compound in Baghdad.
