Intelligence sources now say there were eyewitnesses at the scene where Saddam Hussein’s complex was bombed on the first night, ABC reported Friday morning.
John McWethy, ABC’s national security correspondent, said on air: “Those eyewitnesses say that they saw Saddam Hussein being taken from the wreckage on a hospital gurney, that he had an oxygen mask over his face. In addition, intelligence sources say that there is a lack of communication between Saddam Hussein’s office and his main commands and the rest of his government.
“They are interpreting that as meaning that there is some problem with his health. So they are optimistic that something has happened to the leader of Iraq, but they are still extremely cautious about what his condition is.”
