Surprisingly enough, not with a bang, but with a whimper.
Saturday, U.S. soldiers found the former leader of Iraq hiding in a hole in the ground about 6-8 feet deep. Saddam was captured about nine miles from his hometown of Tikrit and across the Tigris River from one of his lavish palaces.
Saddam had a pistol but was taken into custody without firing it.
It’s going to be…interesting to see what kind of spin people start putting on the events that will unfold from here.
